5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014 NEW

it was a true dining experience. excellent quality of food. extremely attentive staff. cool when it`s really hot outside. the jazz is a little too main stream but a lovely special experience. something I would do once to savour the memory.

We had eaten a fabulous dinner at Arnaud's, and thought to have a drink at the French 75 bar afterwards. We went in but walked out because we didn't see a table, and the bartender came out following us down the street, excused himself but said he'd love it if we came bak, he could find us a table. Of...

We went here last minute on a recommendation from a local. This was our 25th wedding anniversary dinner and we had plans to go to Commanders Palace, we wished we'd stuck with the plan. There were only three other tables seated when we arrived, this should have probably been our clue to leave. The atmosphere although pleasant, seemed too old... More

We visited Arnaud's with our family and we were celebrating my wifes older brother and his wifes 50th wedding anniversary. The setting is classic New Orleans. The staff is professional. The food was excellent with one exception. The fried fish selection was kind of bland and not warm/hot. The breading would have been better with some seasoning. Everything else was... More

We have lived in New Orleans for 8 years and had not been to Arnaud's. We wanted to introduce our kids (4 and 8) to using manners in nicer restaurants. We could not have made a better choice than Arnaud's. We sat in the beautiful main dining room. Our service was excellent and they were so great to our kids.... More

Fish Ponchartrain....delicious. Oyster sampler...delicious. Everyone in our large group loved their meals. The cocktails were very good, also. Highly recommend Arnaud's for a special dinner. Oh, must not forget to mention the service. Our waiter was exceptional!

We dined upstairs in The Gold Room...this was perfect with a private dining area and we were able to enjoy cocktails before inner on on adjacent... More

I try to visit one of the grande dames of NOLA cuisine on each trip and this time we headed to Arnaud's. The food was good--more about that in a moment--but what astonished us was how good the service was. Look around the dining room and there are a surprising number of servers and there is a chain of command... More

This classic New Orleans restaurant was one I had always wanted to visit and was pleased that, as I was passing through town, were able to get a table. My Oysters Arnaud was an offering of six of their oyster appetizers. While the oysters were lost in the toppings, the flavors were none-the-less wonderful. The Crayfish O'Conner was delicious and...
