We were in Bethesda for a Friday evening wedding. Up early Saturday and looking for something open and interesting we went to the Louisiana Kitchen. Early was better for us out-of-towners. Parking could get to be a challenge on the street. The menu was varied and aggressive. I had eggs and crawfish over grilled rice cakes and my wife had... More

Mostly a breakfast eater here, every meal is well prepared, served hot, and by a friendly wait staff. Favorites include the andouille omelet, light-as-air French toast and several Po-Boys. Fine coffee is always refreshed without asking. Many business breakfasts are held here before the 900am office openings in the neighborhood. Been eating here for several years, never disappointed.

We ate at the Louisiana Kitchen & really enjoyed it. We mixed a cajun style roasted half chicken & shrimp etouffee & they complimented each other perfectly for a dinner for two. 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
