Even though this restaurant is in the Hotel Monteleone, it was superb. Joseph, our waiter, knew the menu intimately and was so helpful with our granddaughter who has a gluten allergy. I had redfish which was delightful and broke down and had the creme brulee!

We were in a party of 10 people and we had an area to ourselves that was off the main dining room. The menu is mostly seafood, Cajun and Creole style, but the menu has an ample offering of sides, salads and soups. The hot rolls were out of this world I had the French onion soup which wasn't anything... More

The service was perfect and we enjoyed the tall windows and well appointed tables. The food was delightful, the fish and shrimp very flavorful and the French onion soup different from what I was used to

Ate here while staying at the Hotel Monteleone. Had a very nice dinner. I had the pork-chops and my wife had stuffed shrimp. We also received a free bottle of wine because we were staying at the hotel. Service was good and fast. Would definitely eat here again.

Wedding anniversary dinner - excellent gourmet food. Chef Joe's menus are wonderful. The staff were very attentive and the meals were beautifully presented.

My wife and I ate dinner and breakfast. Dinner was not great. We ordered the stuffed shrimp and the filet. The stuffing and risotto both had a strong bell pepper taste not as good as the stuffed shrimp at the Olympia Grill in Galveston. Breakfast was really good. The eggs Benedict was awesome. I had the northerner with smoked salmon.... More

Rude - when does a server get to waive finger at you? You would not know it looking at the photos as this appears to be an upscale restaurant. Attempted to eat breakfast but could not stay due to extremely uncomfortable seats.

We have had lunch here a few times in the past and always had a good experience with the food and service. It was nothing spectacular, but it was a reliable place to get a quick po boy or bowl of gumbo. So, we were shocked with our experience this past weekend when we again dropped in for lunch. They...

We came here for lunch because it was close to our meeting hotel and really enjoyed the classic décor of the hotel and restaurant as well as the food. We ended up returning for dinner later in the week and had an even better meal. The stuffed shrimp were outstanding and our waiter, James, was cordial, funny, and very knowledgeable.... More

Having this nice restaurant on-site is very handy when staying at the Hotel Monteleone. It is in the upscale price range, however, so it won't replace the occasional need for a quick, economical meal. And, in fact, there are so many restaurants close to the Monteleone that you could stay there and never experience this restaurant. Don't make that mistake.... More
