"Word" to Marvin and Leon!!!

We have been going to the Camellia Grill since 1976 when I moved to Louisiana. This was a chance to share one of our favorite places with two friends who had never been there. The greeting, the ambiance, and most importantly the food, remains strong. They have such pride in what they have... read more

I was born and raised in New Orleans, and every time I come for a visit this is a must. I recommend it to anyone who is going to visit New Orleans also. The food is delicious and staff adds to the fun of the diner atmosphere. Be prepared to wait in line because it is small and there is... More

Today was another opportunity for me to eat at Camellia Grill, and I enjoyed every bit of it, as did my friends who were with me. The food was excellent, as was the service. I hope to be back there soon again.

A friend from New Orleans recommended Camellia Grill as a great spot for breakfast. He was SO right! Although we went on a Sunday and waited in line outside for about 20 minutes, the wait was absolutely worth it. The Gumbo was out-of-this-world delicious, and the service was lively and quick. I can't wait to go back!

Been eating here off/on for 30 years and generally the food/service is very good while cleanliness, particularly the areas under the counters is awful....bad odors from open garbage containers.

Long wait in a short line for a tiny place. Flies and grime, and unfriendly service. The waffle and omelet were not as good as my own. Charming diner look, but I truly don't get it.

We sat at the counter and had lunch. It was fun, entertaining and definitely something different. The food was good but I think you go more for the experience than the food.

This was my second time coming here. The first time was last year with my fiance and this time I came with my mom, grandmother, and aunt for a girl's weekend. Everyone was so impressed and we are still talking about how good the food. First off, there is free parking close by, and we did not have to wait... More

Our daughter discovered the Camellia Grill as a Tulane student. The restaurant is one big counter and you wait until seats are open for your group or you can take out. The staff is friendly and fun. The food is delicious, basic diner food done well. We usually have burgers, fries, onion rings. We love the chocolate freezes. We always... More

I have been going to the Camellia for almost five years and after five years I will not return. We took the trolly all the way from the French Quarter to Camellia's on a Saturday morning. As we arrived about 10 to 15 people were standing out front of the restaurant with confused looks on there faces. We walked in... More
