The night I went, it was a full bar. And I was going alone, and the bartender wasn't overly friendly and just automatically assumed I was waiting for someone. The atmosphere is fantastic. The cocktails were great, but I wasn't a fan of the sriracha seed- caipirinha that I had. Also, I got some gouda balls that were extremely disappointing!... More

We wanted a nice special dinner for a celebration. This restaurant is more formal and the wait staff are impecabbly dressed in uniform, felt like i was on an old cruise liner. We chose to eat in the Jazz Bistro section because we wanted music with dinner, another reason why we chose this restaurant. We tried a few of the... More

When I started going to New Orleans 35 years ago, I avoided Arnaud's because I had the impression it was a place that was standoffish to customers who were not known to the staff. If that was ever true, it certainly has changed. Our large party enjoyed impeccable, traditional service from a dedicated staff. Really, that was just a bonus... More

We stopped here our first night during a four night stay and were very pleased with the food, a jazz trio and really friendly wait staff. We got a personal escorted tour of the restaurant's museum which was a treat! Our waiter also gave us some really good advice on other restaurants in town, which we took and were very... More

This establishment was the highlight of our New Orleans dining experience. It was expensive but worth every penny. I liked the fact that there is a dress code. Long pants and a collared shirt are apparently in force for the gents so this gives the place a more classy, elegant feel. The decor is old world New Orleans, a renovated... More

We had a late lunch at Arnaud's. It was fabulous. Excellent food, great staff and a very nice atmosphere. We enjoyed it very much and would not hesitate to go back.

Arnaud's is not for everyone and not for the everyday dining experience. However, for that special occasion you have in mind consider this restaurant. The service is amazing. The food is wonderful. If you do go to Arnaud's for that special occasion, I do hope you are able to get Mr. Ronald as your server. He is truly a find!... More

As we remembered, Arnaud's is elegant, food delicious and service excellent. We got shrimp Arnaud which the server recommended and for dinner the crabcakes for my husband and the black drum with crabmeat, and bananas Foster with Port for dessert. It was perfect, uncrowded and worth the price. We had enough of our entrees left over for another meal a... More

I was a bit surprised based on other reviews that more patrons were not in the restaurant. However, I found out most NOLA folks eat later in the evening. We were seated in middle of the large dining area among a few other diners. The wait staff were impeccably dressed in formal attire and seem to know exactly when we... More
