Good food, nice view of the Cane River. On a lovely strip of gift stores. We had a delicious carafe of house zinfandel and appetizers. The fried green tomatoes needed seasonings.

We had dinner the Landing and it was excellent. The service was beyond excellent--our waitress was charming and efficient, and the owner was, too! We had a lovely conversation with him, and learned so much about Natchitoches (our first visit). We highly recommend this restaurant.

If you want great Cajun-style seafood in north Louisiana, this is your stop! Right on the lake is this restaurant with a nice ambiance. The service was a little slow at first but once we got a waiter, the feast commenced! The food can be on the pricey side but there are some very affordable options - I had the... More

From 11-2 there is a great all-u-can-eat Sunday Champagne Brunch. There is a smorgasbord of food to choose from. An elegant setting with a lovely jazz band playing in the corner. The Landing is an iconic restaurant that has been in Natchitoches for decades. A lovely setting with great food on Historic Front Street!!!

I met my husband here after the home tour. He was hanging at their bar watching the game and thoroughly enjoying their gumbo and pumpernickel bread warm right of oven. He said best gumbo he has had (although he hasn't had it often) but he really thought this was great. And the bread he couldn't get enough of it. I... More

Service was ok, food cool and not hot, the waiter dropped the glasses he was carrying and then was going to serve wine in the glasses he poured out the wine from the dropped glass. I had to ask to get a fresh wine glass. I think it must have been his first day. Heard good things about the restaurant... More

To Management: Please hire more servers, especially for the holiday season. You want people to come back, and you want customers to talk about your restaurant to keep your business going. There are certain times during the year when you will have far more customers than usual - this is one of those times. Please try your very best to... More

We visited here after we could not get in any of the restaurants on Front Street during the Christmas Festival. It was very good and the service was excellent!
