a return to another era

you owe it to yourself to visit at least one of the old line formal French Quarter restaurants, they demonstrate what Creole cuisine was like before the celebrity chefs.

We celebrated a birthday here. Both food and service and drinks were SPECTACULAR. This is a great New Orleans dining establishment that only exists here, so they do it well. We are definitely returning to Galatoire's! Thanks ALL.

A classic! The experience is tops! Spent 5 hours enjoying lunch and then some! Food, drink and service can't be beat! A must for those who really appreciate a one of a kind restaurant. Not to be missed...!

We visited with the family. Initially we weren't sure of the menu and thought we might be out of place. However when the food arrived it was delicious and our waiter Kenny made us feel like we were at home. Really nice restaurant. Class and style.

Galatorie's is an old school favorite. We ate in the main room first floor. It is a large rectangular room with mirrored walls and all tables no booths. It is pricey for what you get and it is alacart. Escargot was the best part of my meal and if you like it don't pass on it. The meals were good.... More

One of the best restaurants in a city known for excellent food. Incredible seafood dishes, attentive service and fabulous location.

Formal dining is great, but if your in less than your Sunday best, the bar nextdoor is the same food. Just more of a laid back Nawlin's. They surpass the imagination with flavors. The bar area dining is hoity toity enough for me. Six stars and a bourbon cherry on top.

Galatoire's is the quintessential New Orleans restaurant. I love the festive ambience I enjoy seeing men wearing jackets and women dressed-up for dinner. However, it's the delicious food that keeps me coming back. My recommendation is to steer clear of the menu and let your waiter tell you what to order. You can't go wrong. Bon appetite!

Excellent high energy french eatery on Bourbon Street. Jacket Required but worth dressing up for. They don't take reservations so get there early or be prepared to wait.
