WHOEVER WROTE THAT REVIEW WITH 5 STARS IS OUT OF THEIR MIND!

**WARNING.. YOUR STOMACH MIGHT FEEL UNEASY READING THIS REVIEW**

THE WORST PLACE IN RIVERSIDE TO EAT! THEY GAVE ME FOOD POISONING! i'VE BEEN SICK ALL NIGHT AND ALL THIS MORNING!

If you do NOT want to have a good time, PLEASE feel free to sit and eat that this poor excuse for a restaurant.

Our group consist of 4 adults and 1 child. We were very excited to try something new, as we always do. We arrived at 7:30PM to this god forsaken place and a waiter walked by and told us it would be about a 40 minute wait to be seated and that they are extremely busy. I looked around. There were a whole row of empty tables. I didn't say anything and we just waited.

Then a hostess came up to us and said, I'm sorry we couldn't seat you, the cook is backed up in the kitchen it may be another 20 min wait.

WTH! So while feeling already uncomfortable standing and waiting in front of the entrance looking like a fool, we gotta wait 20 MORE mins?

Anyways, finally we got seated. WE SAT THERE FOR 20 MINS AND WEREN'T EVEN GIVEN MENUS!! Then a waiter walked by after all that time and asked us if we've been helped. WTH!

On to the food..
We ordered fried oysters. THEY WERE SPOILED! I cut that thing in half and oyster inside looked like MUD! ABOUT 20 SOMETHING DOLLARS

Voo Doo wings.. with Parmesan fries.. good, but who couldn't microwave chicken wings. Hot on the outside, cold on the inside. AROUND 12 DOLLARS

EXTRA SIDE OF FRENCH FRIES PROBABLY 10 DOLLARS.. because they had to actually be fried and NOT MICROWAVED.

We wanted to order the Calamari. The waiter JOKED that they were out. We laughed and he took our order, came back and said. Sorry we are out of the Calamari. We sulked for a min but got over it. Then he said, WE ARE OUT BECAUSE ITS STILL FROZEN. OMG.... whatever.

It took 40 mins for our appetizers and by the time our food came we have finished every single last bit of french fries and everything else including our drinks! We were starving! I felt like I was being tortured! and denied of food at this point! (AND IT WASN'T EVEN WORTH THE WAIT, I FELT LIKE THE WAITERS WERE GIVING US A CHANCE TO GET THE HELL OUT OF THERE! )

I ordered chicken something, with penne pasta with an Alfredo sauce. The waiter recommended it to me, I thought it sounded good.. BUT that's not what i got. I got something LIKE THAT. Instead of chicken, I got sausages. Wheres the chicken?? MUST BE because the sausages heated up better in the microwave. I didn't say anything about my plate because one of my friends ordered the Pasta Jambalaya and her SHRIMP WASN'T EVEN COOKED, and her pasta was cold. (I told my friend to just pick that shrimp out and eat the rest.., she forked another shrimp and found that ALL OF THE SHRIMPS WEREN'T COOKED THOROUGHLY! ) I didn't want to send the waiter back with 2 plates (mine and my friends). I should have! because I took a bite of my food and it was nice and hot on top, then I decided to mix everything together and I took another bite and some of the pasta and sauce was COLD! I HAD a STOMACH ACHE right at that point. GROSS! When my friend got her plate back, I bet they picked out all the shrimps and microwaved them because her pasta was still cold.

-COLD, UNCOOKED SHRIMP OVER A BED OF COLD PASTA WITH SAUCE, COST about $17.99

-CHICKEN THINGY BUT GOT SAUSAGES OVER HOT PASTA ON TOP BUT COLD ON THE BOTTOM OVER $15.99 (who knows how much they charged for waiters recommendations.)

My other friend ordered the Shrimp Creole and said it was disgusting and tasted like rice with salsa and had like 2 shrimps (good thing for her, her 2 shrimps were fully cooked).

My other friend ordered the Seafood Boil and asked for butter for her crab legs and the waiter came back with cold butter (unmelted). SHE ASKED FOR BUTTER AND SPECIFICALLY STATED THAT SHE WANTED THE BUTTER FOR HER CRAB LEGS. SHE DIDN'T SAY SHE WANTED BUTTER TO SPREAD ON HER GARLIC TOAST! I felt bad for her because she is PREGNANT!

-SEAFOOD BOIL WITH UN-MELTED BUTTER FOR CRAB LEGS (oops! I'm sorry crab leg shell, because there wasn't even anything in the crab leg itself because it was over microwaved and had a thin strip of crab fat) $21.99

- SHRIMP SCAMPI CREOLE AKA. 2 SHRIMPS AND SALSA OVER RICE ABOUT $18.99

The garlic bread was extra. That's O.K. because it was about the only thing that was good and not microwaved and fully cooked.

AVOID THIS PLACE, UNLESS YOU LIKE TO BE DISAPPOINTED AND ANGRY!

This place was delicious and the ambiance was great too. We went for dinner and they had a great jazz pianist playing and plenty of patio seating. We tried the BBQ shrimp, and Vodoo Salad with the Voodo Wings for an apatizer. Wing sauce was amazing, not too hot and even a little sweet. The shrimp dish was to die for. The flavoring was amazing and just not anything like typical BBQ shrimp. This dish even cane with yummy biscuts. The vodoo salad was served over red beans and rice and was definitely hearty enough to fill you up for dinner. Portions were big and I even had left overs ordering the half salad. Happy hour runs till seven and there are $3 drinks. Can't wait to go back and try something new.
