We went to Galatoire's on our honeymoon 47 years ago and went back for "old times sake". The food and service was excellent and the restaurant looks just as it did in 1966. No reservations are taken for the downstairs dining room but we were able to get a table when we arrived on a Sunday night. We enjoyed eating... More

During our three day trip with friends to New Orleans we ate at 5 restaurants. We all agreed Galatoire's was the winner!

We had dinner at Galatoire's and it was an excellent meal. The food was very tasty, fresh and the service was great. My wife loved the sweet potato cheesecake!

Take your wallet and your appetite. Galatoire's does not disappoint !! We were encouraged to sit downstairs because of all the fun but were taken upstairs. We are thrilled to have been seated upstairs. The old world charm of the second floor was wonderful. We could enjoy the food (and that's why we went there) without the crowded and loud... More

Visiting during French Quarter Fest, had reservations for 12 noon on Friday, and we were late by 15 minutes due to traffic...didn't get seated downstairs :( However, our lunch was beyond words as was our waiter, Skip, who had fabulous recommendations, especially considering my husband's unfortunate shellfish allergy. Only downside was the lazy little witch, Emily, who was presiding over... More

My husband happened to have a sport coat on him when on a whim we decided to try to get a table for 2 on a Friday evening. Having moved 150 miles from NO 30 years ago, I no longer knew a waiter's name to ask for. We got seated right away, no wait at 8:15 and our assigned waiter... More

We couldn't get a reservation, so they told us to show up when we wanted and they'd see. So we did ... and got seated immediately at a nice table. Classic New Orleans food, not cheap, but worth every penny!

We celebrated a friend's 50th birthday at Galatoire's. Our food was delicious although a couple of entree's had to be sent back because they weren't hot enough. The restaurant was a little noisy, we were upstairs and it did seem a little less noisy up there.

Food well prepared, service was outstanding, the wine list was fantastic and well priced for a restaurant. We were a party of four and everyone of our meals were just fabulous!
