Disappointing

Our hotel concierge made a reservation for us on a Saturday night on the "patio." We had heard this was an excellent restaurant and were trying several during our week long stay in New Orleans. Since it was cool, I wore a coat, imagining the patio to be a sheltered outdoor space. Wrong. It's on the... read more

The lamb special was disappointing, several of of group ordered a fish special which they ran out of so they substituted a different fish without telling us, and service was just ok

I've heard great things about this restaurant, but it didn't meet my expectations. The service was rushed and rude. The server was pushing to order more food and wine. After she found out I was wanted just wine and a small plate and my friend duck, which was cold, she rushed us even more. It was expensive and not worth... More

We had heard many good things about this restaurant from just about everyone we talked to in NOLA, so we were disappointed when the food turned out only so-so. The gumbo was too beefy, the salad overdressed, the small plates too salty, and the dessert's crust was so hard we couldn't cut it. The service wasn't great either. Our second... More

Great food. Try the sautéed shrimp w/ grits and any seafood dish. Best darn Manhattan on the rocks ever.

If your thing is people watching and good food, this is a place for you. It was noisy, but not in an obnoxious way. We sat next to the bar so maybe that was why. Food was delicious, wait staff was polite and fairly attentive (although ours forgot my champagne, i found someone who quickly bought it to his attention... More

The small plate menu is very well done. For example, the tuna and shrimp ceviche with pumpkin seeds was poetry on a plate. As well, the spiced tuna with fennel - spectacular. Although al fresco is an option I exercised, the view is lacking. The interior is causal and hip, so opt for inside seating. Enjoy!!

Tonight's meal at Herbsaint reminded me why I keep going back year after year. So so good, down to the little details. The table bread was delicious. I ordered a salad and 2 small plates. The salad was divine: red leaf lettuce and little gem, paper-thin shaved fennel, some mild goat cheese in a vinaigrette. Then, my server brought me... More

I may be a bit over-enthusiastic about this restaurant only because we had so many dismal meals while in New Orleans that this one really shone as a decent place with interesting and tasty food. We went in for a late lunch on a weekday (2:30pm) and the place was almost empty. We were heading off to the airport so... More

When we first walked up to Herbsaint, we almost did not recognize it. Located far enough from the Quarter, we loved the location and the menu online. At first, it seemed REALLY loud and the tables were close together. But knowing it was our anniversary, they put us on a corner table by the window which after looking around, we... More
