Had an awesome time with friends and family. They made room for us as we had a large group and the service was great.

We were looking for a snack after a movie with popcorn and knew Fontenot's had delicious starters. When seated, our water glasses were filled, menus presented and specials recited. My wife ordered a margarita and found it as good as she remembered from an earlier visit. I stuck with the water and my glass was refilled right on cue. My... More

This is one of ONLY 2 restaurants that have never failed. Great food, great atmosphere, great service. We had the crab cakes, Asian nachos, and the shrimp. I'd buy their remoulade sauce and shrimp sauce by the quart. They have a wonderful happy hour appetizer menu too!!

Ok. So in my other review I said nothing is good in winter park. Lol. I lied. This place is a jewel! Aside from the not so good New Orleans atmosphere, I was quite surprised at the food.

The service from the time of reservation, to eventually arriving and then leaving the restaurant, was excellent. The choice of beverage was also good. The menu was a little too extensive, leaving room for fine tuning. For example, we found the fish special of the day a little dry and the beef special a little wanting. Overall, a good restaurant.

I'm flattered by your praise of our service. It's always been my goal to show you the warmest of welcomes and take care of your every need. That said, I'm sorry to hear there was room for improvement in the fish special. I appreciate the feedback and will be sure to share that with my team. Hope to see you... More

This was our first time to try Fontenots, recommended by our friends who raved about the experience. Sadly, I most likely would not return. We called ahead and made a reservation according to the time the girl on the phone said they would have a table available. We arrived 30 minutes early, while our table sat unused, we still had...

Waiting that long for your appetizers and dinner is not up to our standards and I'm very sorry for the delay . This certainly doesn't sound like our usual, as we are all about efficient and attentive service. I hope to have the chance to welcome you back in so you can us at our best. Thank you, Chris, Owner More
