Upscale French relaxed in NOLA

My husband and I dine at Herbsaint when we visit NOLA. On this visit, we had one problem - one hour delay with our reservation, although the staff comped an appetizer for us at the bar while we waited as well as gave us a free dessert.

Ate here during a recent 1 night stay in New Orleans to see a concert. Prior to the show, we came to Herbsaint for dinner. The menu is primarily classic, Louisiana inspired food with some modern updates. The menu evenly represented seafood and meat. Not many vegetarian options but this is Louisiana after all. I had the poached red snapper... More

Our waiter was courteous; however, he was not very friendly. We were bothered by flies and fruit flies. A roach was on the counter in the ladies room. Food was pretty good; however, the noise level was at max.

The service was courteous and very attentive. Menu was small but full of different choices. Food was very good. A little pricey for a lunch.

We made reservations at this popular restaurant for our first night in New Orleans. We allowed three hours from our scheduled arrival time to allow us to check into the hotel and freshen up. It turned out that wasn't enough time. We arrived just at the time we should have been at the restaurant. When we called the phone person... More

A wonderful place to eat exciting food and there were movie stars. The crab and watermelon soup was quite refreshing at the end of a hot muggy day in New Orleans

Nice restaurant close to Lafayette Sq. Menu wasn´t anything special but it tasted good. One problem appeared during our dinner (we were 5 of us) - delay. We were waiting quite long our food and later on drinks. Having dinner outside was what we were looking for and they really fixed rapidly problem with suddenly rain. Tables were moved right... More

Food and service were phenomenal. I loved the modern take on some classics. Very nice atmosphere as well. The gnocchi was amazing.

It was so good that we went back a second night on our trip. This place is truly gourmet New Orleans. I suggest the Jumbo lump crab with Watermelon Gazpacho. Beef Short Rib with Potato Rosti. Louisiana Shrimp with Calasparra Rice. All were first class and outstanding
