Sound Bites

The Levee

A Garden to Table

experience, which is like nothing else in Shreveport

What we tried:

Ribeye Toast – Crispy toasted bread, topped with seasoned ground ribeye. The perfect start to any meal.

Cheese Plate – Many restaurants have cheese plates, but no other restaurant I’ve ever been to has featured chocolate cheese. Yes, you read that correctly: chocolate cheese. Obviously, it’s delicious but isn’t always available, so ask your server.

Steak Fruit – A 9-ounce filet spiced and barbecued, served atop crispy quinoa and plum salad. I’ve had steak and vegetables before, but never steak and fruit, which was a delicious combination.

Zydeco Quinoa – Grilled sausage, grilled chicken, carrots and greens all mixed in with the quinoa, topped with a fried farm egg.

Scallops with Squash Blossoms – Served with roasted squash on a bed of lettuce.

Watermelon Slush Dessert – I don’t know how they made it, but imagine a watermelon that’s been frozen and put into a blender. Slushy and delicious.

While some of the menu items we dined on might not currently be served, their ever-changing menu is always superb.


The rolling bar. Who needs a stationary bar when the bar can roll right up to your table? Known for their unique craft cocktails, most of the liquors featured on the bar are distilled in Louisiana.

Next Visit:

Sunday brunch. Among other things, they have candied bacon, French toast and bottomless mimosas. You can’t go wrong with that combination.


Casual and eclectic. About 85 percent of the menu is grown in the owner’s gardens, so you never know what might be on the menu.
