The good news and the bad news about Arnaud's

Service is perfect - everyone is watching to match sure everything is done correctly. The dining room is noisy due to the high ceilings and number of tables. Our shrimp appetizer was good but not memorable. My husband had the crab cakes which were AWESOME! I had the Crabmeat Karen (crabmeat in... read more

Wonderful resturaunt the music from the jazz combo was not so loud you couldn't have a conversation. The food was fantastic. Make a reservation especially if it's the weekend.

The meal, the bread, the ambiance and the service were all amazing. I had the veal with the wild mushroom sauce and it melted in my mouth. Brilliant finish with the Bananas Foster - just a little heavy on the booze. Lovely place and I would return.

After a few days of eating fried seafood and rich buttery fare, we were glad to be treated to Arnaud's fresh and tasty cuisine. The oysters are to die for (we tried one of each style with the Oyster Arnaud), and the Shrimp Arnaud was amazing! For the main dish, I had the sauteed fish with crabmeat on top and... More

I went on a date with my fiancé right before our wedding, and we wound up here to try the " French 75" beverage, and it was worth it! Small and intimate, with well dressed mixologists, this was an amazing few hours we spent together. Antique furniture sets the mood, and friends catching up and couples alike make a great... More

I'm biased because Creole is my favourite cuisine, and this place has the best Creole food I've ever tasted. But seriously, the food is magnificent, the staff are always very friendly and efficient, and even though the prices are high-ish for New Orleans the quality of the meal means you get very good value for money (particularly compared to other...

Arnaud's is one of about 5 old traditional New Orleans establishments and should be on everyone's short list. The food is Cajun/creole/American and is really, really well done (Pompano Duarte is incredible). One of the dining rooms has windows to Bourbon St and live jazz making for a more lively atmosphere. Make sure to plan time to get a drink... More

I wanted to visit Arnaud's simply because of its long history or elegance. It did not disappoint. The ambiance was everything I expected, the service superb. The wine list was rather intimidating at first (I think I will pass on the $12,000 bottle of red), but it had a number of decent to quite good choices for under $100. The... More

Best meal in the city. Table Side Caesars , Bananas Foster & Flaming Coffee made it a treat. Service was on the spot, attentive and responsive.
