This was a business dinner, The meal started with an appetizer plate composed of shrimp remoulade, oyster brochette, and crab dressing, all unbelievably tasty. Lots of crusty French bread and plenty of creamy butter. Next course was a salad. Then came trout meneure a rather large portion perfectly fried and topped with toasted almonds served over steamed asparagus. Next course... More

The food was amazing and the service very good, especially considering how busy they always are. Easy to see why this restaurant is a classic, even though it is pretty expensive.

My very good friend surprised me with a trip from Dallas to New Orleans for my early 50th birthday lunch. What a special treat to eat at Galatoire's. The food was presented with sophistication and elegance. You find out quickly why it has been around since 1905. All of the food was prepared to perfection.

For years I have heard and read about Friday lunch at Galatoire’s in New Orleans. It’s said to be something you should experience at least once. Although I have been to Galatiore’s a few times, I had never enjoyed Friday lunch when prominent New Orleans regulars brave the French Quarter craziness to partake in a luncheon eating and drinking ritual...

Slow down on Bourbon Street and make a reservation at Galatoire's. It will not disappoint. The quality of the service and the cuisine are superior. You will need to dress nicely but you will also not be seated next to intoxicated idiots.

Lunch for the locals last all afternoon here on Fridays. The new annex, bar and steaks get venue to wait for a table.

Last Friday's lunch at Galtoire's was amazing. The greens salad was so fresh and the dressing was exquisite. The Crabmeat Yvonne was the best I have ever tasted. We were lucky to get a reservation (3 weeks in advance), and were seated in the main dining room which was filled with prominent local folk. A couple of patrons were celebrating... More

Galatoire's is a New Orleans legend for old-time creole favorites. Once you get past the tackiness of its Bourbon Street location you enter a room that must have looked like this a century ago. Food is very good in a traditional sort of way. This is not the place for nouveau cuisine, but if you want real creole you can't... More
