A place where you don't have to explain a French 75!

Classic old school style resto right off of Bourbon. My pork tenderloin was a little on the dry side, but the French 75 was perfection! Remember, only have one! They pack a powerful punch like the guns they are named after. I give Arnauds the extra star though because of the live music in the less... read more

We had a fabulous time last night at This classic restaurant. Our waiters Rick Hughes and Ron Boykin made us feel like regulars. I think they even made the food taste better. Be sure to request them when you go.

Very fine dining in classic style. The oysters Arnaud were great as well as the entrees. I wished we had saved room for the flaming dessert we saw another table have.

A New Orleans institution. The Jazz brunch is a must on any trip to the Big Easy. A four course traditional brunch with outstanding service and live jazz band. The band takes requests so be prepared but When the Saints Go Marching In and You Are My Sunshine are big favorites. The dress code has relaxed over the years but... More

My husband and I ate here last week knowing that it is a classic NOLA restaurant. I also know that it gets mixed reviews but we thought it was absolutely amazing.

The food was phenomenal. The fresh homemade bread was so delicious. Potato Suffle - delicious. Very nice. I can not wait to go back. Dress for the experience because the servers are wearing Tuxedos. The jazz area has beautiful Tod White paintings. It is a fine dining experience that is worth the splurge.

This place is famous for a reason -- its food is extremely good and it is expertly run. We three ate only delicious appetizers, one better than the next.

Excellent cocktails and service at this venerable establishment. Elegant décor and comfortable atmosphere. The signature French 75 cocktail was delicious; soufled potatoes were a nice light snack. All bar staff provided outstanding service. I would spend time here very often if I lived in NO.
