We recently visited Galatoire's with some friends that live in New Orleans. It truly is an experience. You go in there, semi dressed up, sit down, yell across the table, eat fancy food, have an expensive tab, and love every second. Go with a group of people. The tables are close together, as the place is small. Our hosts are... More

two old friends from opposite sides of the USA decide to meet in New Orleans for a weekend. Friend #1 does not do spicy or creole. We arrive at Galatoire's and no worries. Our waiter Charlie walks her through the menu and she has a hearts of palm salad and sautéed crab. Friend #2 has Godchaux salad and shrimp étouffée... More

Tradition keeps me coming back (also the trout almondine). However, on my last visit, an unruly regular ruined my entire three hour lunch with his rude actions and his hateful violation of my personal space. He continued to hit me on my back because I bumped him. Hmmm, the lady, who was seated prior to you, and I shared our... More

Sorry but you cannot even carry on a conversation with person next to you. Food was good but slightly over rated for having to withstand the closeness of seating, loudness, and pressure by waiters to turn table over for next seating. There are lots more places to dine that I choose over them in Nola

Galatoire’s is a nice restaurant in the heart of Bourbon street. It has a smaller dining area than I was expecting, and it wasn’t very busy on a Wed evening. Our waiter was knowledgeable and pleasant, but the service wasn’t as frequent as it should have been. We each started with a cup of seafood gumbo which was rich and... More

Went to check this off the bucket list - been there, done that, won't do again. Even though the food was very good, the atmosphere was old school charm & the waiters were attentive, it took over 2 hours to get our dinners. We did mention this to the waiter, he said there was nothing he could do but sent... More

We ate early so we were able to walk right in with no reservations about 6:00. They had a prix fixe menu which we decided would work for us. My companion ordered the salad which was wonderful and I ordered escargot which had way more mushrooms than escargot but it was tasty. We both ordered the seafood bouillabaise which was... More

Locals would skin me alive for writing this, but the place is a museum, NOT a restaurant. They adhere to the old ways, which is charming. They also offer preferential treatment to the regulars, so you can expect to be put on "ignore" if it's busy. All the food is overcooked and swimming in butter. If you're after an interesting...
