Fantastic service, great atmosphere and good food. My wife and I decided to have lunch at NOLA after a few bad experiences in the French Quarter and we really enjoyed NOLA. We had gumbo of the day, which was delicious. I also had Shrimp & Grits and enjoyed every bit of it. Simply the best restaurant in the French Quarter... More

I had eaten here years back and wasn't that impressed. We were in a rush to make a show so we ran in here just to see if we could eat at the bar. So glad we did. The manager was going to set us up at a table in the bar but just had a no-show so we got... More

pretty much what you would expect from an Emeril's. The service was very friendly, the drinks were great and the food first rate. Nothing to complain about here. It is on OpenTable app. so make a reservation and enjoy

We visited Nola on a Friday evening during the French Quarter Festival, when the Quarter was packed with locals and visitors. We were fortunate to grab a reservation through Open Table when most of the good restos in New Orleans were solidly booked. The Maître d' greeted us by name, and we were led immediately to our window table on... More

The wait staff was really awesome, my husband and I did not have to ask for anything. Dinner was ok, very pricy definitely not worth the $100 bill. Very noisy and I expected a different atmosphere. Will not visit again when in town.

Three of my fellow seminar attendees were told that Nola's on St. Louis street in the French Quarter was a good choice for dinner. They were absolutely correct. I ordered the Shrimp and grits, which was the best I have ever tasted. For desert, I had the Crème brulee. It came in three containers of coconut, chocolate and vanilla flavors... More

I had read about Nola for some time and was very keen on visiting during my trip to New Orleans. I loved the setting of this restaurant, we were seated on the first floor. The decor was simple and there was a good amount of space between the tables so I didn’t at all feel over crowded. Our waiter was... More

The food was great, but the noise level in the restaurant was very loud. It was not a group or the other customer that were loud, it was that the ambient noise was annoying loud. I would not reccomend to anyone who would like to enjoy a conversation during there meal.

We've been to Nola twice now and both times had some of the greatest food we've ever had. I make a reservation immediately whenever I book my flights to New Orleans - it's a not-to-be-missed place! The service is great, too. It does get loud in there, so know that it won't be a quiet, intimate dinner. We were with... More

My wife and I had dinner here with our daughter and her fiancé. I understand this is an old standard in the French Quarter and wasn’t always part of the Emeril restaurant chain, but is today. Reservations are a requirement. We were a little early and were seated quickly, and the service was very good. By the time we left... More
