Tope La is one of those restaurants in Hammond, where I say, "Yea, why don't we go there!". It is never first on my list of where to eat in Hammond, because truth be told, I don't like eating in Hammond. That might be because I live here and the lack of restaurants is annoying. Tope La is a great... More

We went for dinner, wife and two messy boys. Ordered quick, obviously. Kids food came quick (thoughtful): actually very tasty mac&cheese. We had Sugar cane grilled salmon and Tournedo Bayou Lafourche: both would be excellent choices.

When in Hammond, LA we always try to get to Tope La. The food is always far superior than any other restaurant in the area. The variety and quality is definitely a stand out in town. From the steaks, to the unique specialty offerings to the grilled vegetable salad (which is fantastic), we have never had a bad meal. Save... More

Every trip we plan to stop here. We are never disappointed and will be back. We traveled through here often going to Austin Texas. The food is very good and the service is excellent can't wait for the next trip be sure to get the French bread pudding for dessert. The best bread pudding I've ever had.

We have stopped t this restaurant several times over the past few years and have never been disappointed. The food is a combination of classic French and Cajun. Great flavors without most of the heat some places think makes the food better. If you are on I12 and any where near Hammond, LA around dinner time, you owe it to... More

Tope La isn't what you would expect to find in a quaint South Louisiana town, but it far exceeds your expectations once you walk inside. The bar is very large and inviting and a great place to have a cocktail when waiting for a table, or if just for a nightcap. The dishes are all well thought out, and well-prepared.... More

I love the atmosphere of this Resturant! We visited on a Friday night and they had live acoustic music which they do on Fridays and Saturday which is a nice treat! I order the pasta bake again and I just can't get enough! There is so much food on that dish I could only eat 1/4 - 1/2 of it... More
