This is the bar connected to Arnaud's. We had planned on going into Arnaud's just for dessert but were told we could only do that at 9:00 pm and we didn't want to come back so decided to just do drinks at the bar. We had the namesake drink and it was the BEST of the French 75's we tried... More

We ate at the Jazz Bistro and I loved it. It was a little more relaxed than some of the other places we ate during the week. Not as stuffy as some other places but equally as good food and service. The jazz band was interactive and fun. All of the servers were great from the time we stepped through... More

We had a dinner with clients at Arnaud's, all in a good experience. The wait staff was attentive and worked as a team and we were never wanting. Water glasses were always filled and drink replaced as needed. We had the oysters as a starter which were fresh and properly cleaned. For the main I had the Popand Duarte (filet... More

We came back here for dinner for sentimental reasons after ten years. Arnaud's had not changed. Indeed, the impression is that it has not changed for decades, and though the restaurant was fairly empty on a January evening we soon warmed to its authentic feel -- tiled floor, chandeliers -- made more festive by leftover Christmas sparkle. Waiters were charming... More

Dined here with a big group conference we were attending and this place is so deceiving! We were taken upstairs to a private dining area set up for us and the rooms are just beautiful and have so much history to look at. Once you get past looking at all that and get down to the meal, you have to... More

Looked high and low for a great spot with an authentic mint julep served in a silver cup. Unusually hard to find in a place renowned for them (Google Youtube Mint Julep and you will see Chris McMillian's excellent explanation and prose). Found it here and was impressed and finally satisfied. Decor and service were great.

A great place to sit at the bar and enjoy some classic NOLA cocktails. We tried one of their special winter cocktails with star anise and rye, it was like velvet deliciousness. We also tried the French 75 and Sazarac.... Hands down, best sazarac that I drank in the city. Cant wait to go back.

Popped in for a quick drink before dinner because of the great reviews and write-ups. Walked into a crowded cigar-smoke stinkfest. Waited 10 minutes for someone to say hello and welcome. Had a good, but tiny $15 martini and got the hell out.

Visiting French 75 Bar is a must when visiting Nola. Bar Man Chris and his team are true professionals. Check out the museum upstairs. And if looking for true local classic dishes, this is the place.

Took my family here for Sunday brunch on our first morning in New Orleans. The food was wonderful, the service exacting, and the jazz combo fun and endearing. What a great kickoff for our visit! I lived in New Orleans in the early 1970s, before Arnaud's was sold to it current owners. At that time, the place was literally falling... More
