The price was excellent & the portions were beyond fair. The taste was, let me tell you, absolutely wonderful. We wanted to return for breakfast, but never made... More

We went there for lunch, the service was fast and friendly, but the food was far too spicy, ti was sprinkled with thick layer of pepper which corresponded to Indian cuisine not for American one.

Excellent gumbo, biscuits, cornbread and fried okra. Go for Sunday brunch and enjoy the expert flavors and authentic recipes from New Orleans. Friendly helpful staff and nice atmosphere make this cute little restaurant a good spit fir lunch, brunch or dinner.

For those of us on the east coast, longing for authentic New Orleans food, we are eternally grateful for the Louisiana Kitchen. Great everything, and they will gladly adjust the dish to your preferences. Everyone there has the ease and friendliness of NOLA and there are all ages. The families with young children are not loud, and it is also... More

Louisiana Kitchen is a great place for breakfast or, even better, weekend brunch. The egg dishes are excellent and range from a nicely prepared 2 eggs with bacon, home fries and a biscuit, to omelettes, eggs Benedict, and eggs Sardou. If you'd prefer a sandwich, the oyster po-boy is a winner, as is the muffuletta, both classic New Orleans preparations.... More

Nothing fancy, not showy, just good old honest food. Good selection of the traditional Gumbos, PO' Boys, and rice-based dishes (including, of course, Jambalaya. Good selection of beers as well.

We really had a taste for Cajun cuisine and tried this restaurant. The decor is reminiscent of a New Orleans restaurant, but the food was only average. Everything was under-seasoned and bland.
