Oldie but a goodie

Galatoire's is one of those old fashioned restaurants where service really mattered. The staff is super helpful and attentive and the food, while old school, is solid. We loved the soufflé potatoes and we both enjoyed our foie gras. IMO, both are "must do" dishes. I also got the Oysters... read more

I desperately wanted to entertain friends at Galatoire’s for lunch on a Friday and it all went horribly wrong. So wrong, I’ll never get my wife to return and yet it is still my favorite of all of the New Orleans Grande Dames. Ironically, we stood in line for Friday lunch during the early weeks of Mardi Gras on our... More

After eating at Galatoire's on our last night in NOLA, my wife and I finally understand the concept of these types of restaurants. I have never been a huge fan of dress codes, but I love great food and when a friend recommended we eat here, I figured what the heck. The food was excellent (try the duck crepe, very... More

Great service and wonderful food creations are a hallmark of Galatoire's. Men bring a jacket as it is required, unless you want to wear one off their rack. Pricey but worth a visit.

Of the fancy restaurants we dined at including Commander's Palace and Tujague's, we liked this best, but it still wasn't up to all the hype. The bartender was great, but we almost had 1 to 1 service.

I saw the lines for years and it was the only big name restaurant that I had not dined at so I finally dropped in. I Don't understand what all the fuss is about?

I took my wife to Galatoire's this past weekend to celebrate her birthday. The atmosphere, service, food and drinks were everything one thinks of when they think "New Orleans" greatness! This restaurant is a New Orleans staple. There are many great restaurants in this fine city, but this one surpasses them all. This was my great grandfather's favorite restaurant in... More

A great place to dress up for an intimate, upscale New Orleans meal...white linen, right in the heart of the French quarter.

Fancy, established restaurant with local fare and strong drinks. Sport coats are required for the gentleman and if you didn't pack one, no worries, they have plenty for you to borrow at the front door. The wait staff was kind but there was a maitre'd that was a bit too snobbish for our liking. We would highly recommend a reservation... More

Thoroughly enjoyed Galatoire's. This was our first trip and we loved it. The cocktails were great. Our waitress Alisha was friendly and informative. Lots of lump crab dishes. I had the Crab Yvonne and it was delicious..the turtle soup was a little thick, but tasted good. I wish they had waited to add the sherry table side. The flavor got... More
