My rating is based on good quality breakfast food, but more on the local ambiance. You just don't find an old countertop grill dining experience very often this is a New Orleans landmark. I've also been to the other location in the French Quarter but prefer this one in the Garden district. You might have to wait awhile for a... More

Went for breakfast and ordered omelets. Fastest service we have ever had. Seemed like 5 minutes from order. Outstanding - and the food was very good too.

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 created. Gentlemen like Marvin who has been... 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.
