Did not enjoy our meal at Galatoire's. First, the interior seems more like a soda shop then a restaurant and the tables are way too close together. Next, the place was dirty; the air vents on the ceiling are covered in dust and there was trash all over the floor. Then I noticed it; no one had a suit that... More

We were told that no New Orleans culinary experience could be complete without a meal at Galatoire's restaurant, and, we thought we might try lunch there. We walked in, heard such a racket, with a big birthday party, and lots of really loud non-birthday party lunchers that we hurried right out again. On another day, we walked by probably between...

Had a late dinner with eight other friends and spouses. Had reservations for upstairs since we were told that it was quieter. On arrival, we were told that we could not sit upstairs; they had a large party. On insisting that our reservation was for upstairs, we waited while a very rude hostess tried to accommodate us. Once we got... More

Went with a party of 6 for business. The restaurant is noticeably loud as you walk in the front door. The hosts/hostesses were modestly engaging. We were in the upper dining room which was so loud at times that none of us could hear our table conversation. Our server was helpful though overworked and thus there were long gaps between... More

Dinner with large party on Saturday night. We were seated upstairs and the dining room was packed. So loud it was almost impossible to hear the person seated across from me. Our two servers were very personable and tried hard to make the evening a pleasant experience. The food was just okay. I had broiled Pompano and it was small,... More

My husband and I dined there for our anniversary dinner last week. The food was average and overpriced just like the staff. Nothing special.

Party of 6 - appetizers, entrees, drinks, dessert. Nice creative dishes, excellent quality and service. Everyone in the restaurant appeared to be enjoying their dining experience as much as me - that's always a good sign.

it is difficult to really give a review of the food since the portions were so small. I am a local and there are other places in new Orleans with much more to offer in taste and size.

This is one of the grande madams of New Orleans fine dining. We decided to go just to experience it since it gets mixed reviews. It was very pricy ($170 before tip for 2 apps, 2 entrees, 2 sides, 2 cocktails, 2 glasses of wine, and 1 dessert) and the service was excellent but the food was, honestly so-so. We... More

Friendly veteran server (in his 60's) knowledgeable, helpful at making suggestions. Atmosphere: bright with mirrors on the walls (not a dim lit "romantic atmosphere" - in case that's what you're looking for) which certainly works for the business dinner I had. Seafood type sampler appetizer was great - included an oyster loaf - excellent. My filet was cooked ideally as... More
