Right in the French quarter.

We loved the place, the atmosphere and the setting. Food was average by international standard but the atmosphere makes it all. Service was a bit long and limited selection of good affordable French wines.

Went for the Reveillon dinner and weren't too impressed. The food was good, though a bit overrated. The wait staff was overbearing. All in all a good experience and would be willing to give it another try, but we've had better in NOLA.

Semi formal wear required, professionalism and friendliness from staff had the right balance for this formal restaurant in New Orleans. Food was amazing and very modest prices

From the service to the food, was just spectacular. The oysters Rockefeller was fabulous. Great atmosphere. Seafood was fresh and well prepared. I cannot wait to return to NOLA and go again!

Galatoires' Friday Lunch is a "Thing". I have been going to NOLA for years and never heard about the Friday Lunch. This is a lunch you prepare for - not only do you have to "wait-in line" but the women dress up and men should wear jackets (certainly a collared shirt is required). Local & state politicians, the Real Housewives... More

We had a really good meal here. Great location in the heard of bourbon street but very quiet and nice setting. We ate upstairs. Food was excellent as was service. My only negative was that it was very quiet and didn't have a lot of energy.

This place had great service. The ambiance was also nice. The oysters were some of the best I've had in town.

My husband and I arrived at Galatoire's around 4:30 on a Tuesday afternoon in July, the staff welcomed us with gracious warmth. Charles our waiter was the best waiter I have ever had. He made us feel so wanted. The food is to die for! We shared the shrimp salad, which had ample shrimp and more than ample lump crab.... More

The food was very good and had some innovative flavors (eg, fried zucchini slices that came with bearnaise AND powdered sugar!). We went with friends who are extremely well-known there and the service by the maitre D and our amazing waiter Sean made it more special. The Dining Room is attractive and French Bistro style. Menu was large and flavors... More
