Good food, a bit expensive

One of the more renowned restaurants in the Quarter, we just had to try it. The food was good, especially their alligator sausage and they have a nice wine list. It was a bit pricey, but right in line with what you would expect in the French Quarter.

This is a must. Have the shrimp romalaude. YUMMY! Ask to go upstairs to see the collection of easter bonnets and the heirloom Mardi gras dresses from the family that is in a museum that not many people know about. It also has a hidden bar from the early days! I had oysters, gumbo, boudin, all fab...

First time dining at Arnaud's and we were excited! Seated in the beautiful main dining room, with a server who was very knowledgable and attentive. Loved the crab cakes with remoulade (look small, but are filling) oysters were fresh and my husband had the 3-course special for $40 which was well-worth it! He tried the chicken clemenceau, special gumbo and... More

We found our visit to Arnaud's very disappointing. First of all we had bothered to bring a formal jacket for my husband to wear, all the way from the UK - as required by the published dress code. When we arrived at the restaurant it was clear that this code was not being adhered to. Men in open neck shirts... More

We came to French 75 for pre-dinner drinks. Nice atmosphere, and the bar is really well run. Ordered a French Blonde, and while the bartender didn't know the drink, she made a perfect one (or two, haha) after checking for the recipe. We really liked this place.

Arnaud's exceeded our expectations and surpassed the other dinners we had here. We were a little concerned with its location but the outstanding menu, prompt, professional wait staff, and delicious food made this our best dinner in New Orleans. Yes way better than CP!! Highly recommend.......though again it appears their published dress code of "Jackets for men" is definitely optional.... More
