The food was very gourmet. Nothing ordinary on the menu. The menu was limited but had several small plates along with a few entrees. Each and everyone was fabulous. I can't believe I loved the rabbit. It may have been my favorite. The steak, and the shrimp and grits, were both ordered at our table. Both were very good. The... More

As always my party of 4 was blown away by the food at Herbsaint. Professional friendly waiters are always ready to recommend something new for the evening. A must have menu Item however is the Shrimp and Grits; perfectly prepared the way a low-country dish should be.

We stopped by to see if we could get in for dinner and were happy that the hostess was able to fit us in. The restaurant was busy but our service was excellent and the food delicious. I had the pork belly and it was wonderful, my friend had the lamb special and it was equally good. Highly recommended for... More

Tip: Make reservations--it fills up fast. Our party of four went to Herbsaint with reservations for 5:30, the earliest dinner seating. However, we got there early, at 5, and decided to order from the bistro menu. We tried the gumbo, the soup of the day, the flatbread, and the grilled shrimp. The soup of the day was ok. However, the... More

Their restaurant is very charming. Their menu is always extraordinary. Their food is DELICIOUS! and nothing like you'll find elsewhere. If you want a great meal, good service, attractive setting - this is the place. One of my all time favorite restaurants to eat in every time I am in New Orleans!

Small and crowded, but with a varied and tasty menu. Stopped in on Friday night, and even with reservations had to wait 30 minutes for our table. The four of us ordered 7 appetizers and 1 main dish to share - - it all looked and smelled so good that we wanted to try as much as possible. Everything was... More

Went to Herbsaint with my husband and college age son. It was our second visit in 2 years. For apps, we had Grilled shrimp and grits, a salad with buttermilk dressing and gnocci with lamb , all were great. They both had the trout special and raved about it. I had the pork belly and didn't like it so much,... More

We had the pleasure of being invited to lunch at the Herbsaint and enjoyed a wonderful three course lunch. The hors d'oeuvres were varied and delicious, particularly the cheeses. The gumbo was plentiful and was topped with rice, it reminded me of a Southern style Mulligatawny soup. The fish was very nicely cooked and presented with crispy mushrooms as an... More

The food was wonderful: quail, rib eye, salads, ceviche, Brussel sprouts, chocolate pudding cake... Our waitress was adorable. We did have to wait for our table, though we had a reservation. The bar is tiny and they seat people there - I can't imagine their experience was wonderful. This is one of those spaces that has no foyer or transition... More
