Good service, nice menu and great food. The BS BLT was excellent. Its located on a nice quite street/ally which is nice to break from the often hectic French Quarter streets. Quite expensive would be our only issue and only thing that prevents 5 stars.

Innovative lunchtime choices that satisfied, served outside in a quiet location on Exchange Place away from the hubbub found elsewhere in the French Quarter. Friendly service, too.

I stopped in here for lunch. Great little restaurant on Exchange place, a quite little corridor in the French Quarter. The spicy cocktail with mezcal was excellent. I had a po-boy with shrimp, pork belly, hot pepper jelly, blue cheese and other delectable ingredients. Great sandwich. I would've gone back if we had more time.

This was our second visit to Green Goddess and it did not disappoint! Though it is in the busy touristy part of the French Quarter, it's location on a quaint side alley keeps it a little out of the fray. It is well worth it with delicious and interesting cocktails, and a great variety of fresh, flavorful local food that... More

We had dinner here on the last night of our trip. Drinks were great. I tried a "Salvation" which was a cool twist on a Pimms cup. Delicious! Hubby had a local IPA and enjoyed it. Our meal was wonderful! Not your traditional NOLA fare which was nice for a change. Food was fresh and delicious and very creative. I... More

Delicious, creative and a plain old great dining experience. While waiting for your food you may want to pop in next door to Bevolo and watch the coppersmiths at work, too. Bring your non-veg friends, too, since meat, poultry and seafood can be added to the meals as well.

Had I not read these reviews first, I would have just walked by. The place is nothing to look at and the staff seems unprofessional. But we found that you can't judge a restaurant just by looking at it. The drinks the dinner and the desserts were all surprisingly excellent. The staff was friendly and very professional. If you're up... More

The Green Goddess had an outstanding menu of interesting and absolutely delicious food. My salad was arugula with kale chips, toasted almonds, fresh watermelon, topped with a creamy burrata cheese. Sat outside in a quaint pedestrian walkway. I'd recommend to anyone.

This is by far one of the most interesting, off-the-beaten-path restaurants we have ever come across. Nestled in Exchange Alley in the French Quarter, it is a gem. We started off with an amazing ginger and gin drink made with Pimm's Cup. Then a lamb meatloaf with grilled cheese, great pork belly and desserts that blew us away--a bacon ice... More

I went with four friends. Each of us tried different cocktails, entrees and added a shared starter & dessert. Everything was soooo wonderful. The atmosphere of Exchange Alley was just an added bonus. One thing you should try- the Mushroom Cheesecake. It's an entree, but I would suggest sharing it- maybe as a starter. It's outrageously good, but too rich... More
