I have only eaten here once, and the food and service are excellent and this is a great place to take your family for dinner. I recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting New Orleans, and the prices are reasonable and I have seen children in the restaurant and I think they would like this restaurant.

This was an excellent meal and experience. The atmosphere was exactly what I thought New Orleans would be like. The fish was fresh and tasty. The drinks were well made. It was a party inside. Well worth going once.

Had dinner there 2 nights ago and it did not disappoint. The crab au gratin defies description and absolutely you MUST have the bread pudding for dessert. The wait staff is perfection except they really need to crumb the table after that devine bread. It is somehow charming to see a restaurant have a still have a dress code. Old... More

Galatoire's is absolutely one of my favorite dining experiences. The sauteed soft shell crab with lump crabmeat is to die for. Everything was perfect from the bread brought almost immediately upon being seated to the excitement in the room to the flawless service. Love this place!!!

Friday lunches at Galatoire's are an institution - just ask any of the locals. You don't just have lunch, it is an event...tablehopping, meeting new people, something you won't soon forget.

We visit NOLA every few years and every trip begins with dinner at Galatoire's. We always wonder if it will still be as good as we remember. It always is! We love the old charm of the first floor (we go early to get a good seat). We've always have had personable & attentive wait staff, and wonderful, wonderful food.... More

The food was superb! However, the restaurant was loud, including a patron so drunk they felt the need to sing for every one. My waiter had his nose stuck so high in the air that if it was raining he would have drowned. Took one look at me as a single diner and must have decided I wasn't worth his... More

My best friend insisted that this restaurant in New Orleans should be on top of our list. The soufflé potatoes are amazing! My mouth is obsessed with this potato puff ball. I found the recipe online and tried to make these potato wonders but could not make them puff correctly. We also ate the most delicious fish in a cream... More

Eating at Galatoire's is always a pleasure. The service is top-notch and the food is excellent. We both had the Crabmeat Augratin and it was to die for! There was so much I had to take it back to the hotel and eat half of it for breakfast and it was just as good cold. This is one of our... More

Of the restaurants we tried during our five day stay, this one ranks right at the top. The food is superb, the service prompt and friendly, and a nice wine list.
