A classic not to miss

Walk through the door and step back in time as you get shown to your seat where there will be live jazz, including at your table and enjoy the terrific food. You can also choose the section for fine dining which has a different but also great atmosphere

This is a favorite of mine and my wife's. We try to have dinner here at least once during our stay. My opinion they have some of the finest steaks in New Orleans.

We were here on a Friday night and did have reservations. We were running late so I called the restaurant to let them know. We arrived about 10 minutes late, but the staff were all very friendly. Some restaurants would cancel the reservation, so I'm happy to stay they were very accommodating. The service of the entire staff was superb.... More

Have dined at Arnauds many times. Glad to say I still enjoyed it! It is particularly nice that the old fine dining establishments in New Orleans are upholding a dress code. It is nice to dine with others who care enough to look decent. Gives a whole different atmosphere to the restaurant. Enjoyed their Coolinary Month special menu.

This was the first restaurant that we stopped in for dinner and it gave us all the flavor that we were expecting from New Orleans: on Bourbon St; waiters in tuxedo's; and a live jazz band called the Gumbo Trio who's members were straight out of the '40's. This is a big restaurant, so request to sit in the live... More

Enjoyed an exceptional dining experience at the Jazz Bistro section of Arnaud's. From the service to the cuisine, everything exceeded expectations. It's no wonder this place has been around for nearly 100 years. Can't wait til I'm back in the Big Easy to return to Arnaud's.

French 75 is one of our favorite watering holes in the Quarter even more so now that there is no longer any cigar smoke.
