The entire Delta Grill was set up with a down-home New Orleans feel. From the weather-beaten red wood exterior to the Mardi Gras beads around the fireplace, this place screamed "good time for y'all" to everyone inside. We actually visited around lunch hour, before we went to our theater musical, so we had to keep an eye on the clock.... More

Easy to find; first tasted the food on a walking tour of Hell's Kitchen and then went back for dinner the next night. Amazing flavors and they served strawberry Abita!

Great food, great service! A little off the beaten path but if you like authentic cajun cuisine then you will love the food in this restaurant!

The Delta Grill has a very rustic and local feel about it, trying to connect the feeling of the restaurant with the food they are serving. It was very vibey when we visited, and quite full. The menu was interesting and had something for everyone. Everyone said they liked their dishes, and it was what I would call a hearty... More

Have been here a few times when I get a yang for New Orleans food. Not authentic, but OK. This past week, stopped for brunch. Had stomach surgery a year ago and have to be careful about what I eat (consistency). Ordered an omlette and asked Heather (my server) what it came with. She told me it came with potatoes... More

Went here for brunch prior to a show because we love New Orleans cooking and wanted to give this place a try. The service was ok. Our waiter was nice but the service was a little slow. We ordered the crabcake eggs benedict and cinnamon raisin french toast. Both were very good. The crabcake comes with potatoes which were ok.... More

Landed here based on reviews from friends. They said it was a favorite & I do NOT see why. The food is barely average and if you have eaten authentic New Orleans style food this will be below average. I had the blackened fish with veggies & jalapeño potatoes. The veggies were cold & the potatoes were just ok. The... More

We ended up at The Delta Grill after it was suggested by a NYC Firefighter. He said it was a low key atmosphere and good food. Who knew we could go north and get good Cajun food? Our party sampled the shrimp etouffe, the gumbo, the jambalaya and the muffuletta. We wanted to try to try the crawfish buckets but... More

the food was average as long as you like it fried. the day we were there was a beautiful spring day but inside was way too warm- we all complained- i must say though the bartender, while we waited for friends for dinner, was very attentive to any and all questions.

Right at the heart of Manhattan. Perfect location. Prices are pretty reasonable for Manhattan. 15% tips already included so waiters don`t care of you much. Average food. Nothing special or very delicious.
