Every trip I take to New Orleans includes a trip to Galatoire's. While pricey, it is worth every penny. Many of the waiters have been employed at this restaurant for many years. My favorite, Charlie is requested every time. My most recent visit was last week and we toasted a good friend's retirement. Charlie took the best care of us... More

Wow, was this ever a rip-off. The seafood dishes were drowned in sauces of butter and cream and we actually felt sick after. It was loud with pretentious waiters from up north. Really? How inauthentic. We had a crab dish and a redfish with crawfish dinner. Despite the price, we left half of it on the plate as inedible. Save... More

Been there twice with my husband and family.its a family favorite when were in town. The staff was very attentive to our needs. We never had bad meal there so i have no clue why the lady above me would write one.

Perfect old french quarter atmosphere, service and food!!!! Highly recommend sitting downstairs for the "best" history, people watching and atmosphere. Pros: classic old french quarter service and food, atmosphere, regulars ask for same waiters, expansive menu for any taste, awesome original but basic desserts Cons: no reservations accepted for downstairs( but that's ok), tables are invasively close to one another,...

We were in town recently and ate twice at Galatoire's.It's just superb in everyway.If I'm in New Orleans and can only eat at one place,I'm picking Galatoire's every time.I had,as usual,the trout meunière almandine and it was perfect as always-my wife had the soft shell crab which was also wonderful-I had their turtle soup twice-it's so good,and crawfish étouffée was...

Old New Orleans atmosphere. Great waiters and the best food of any place I have eaten, and I have been to all the best Double escargot in the order. Great house salad.

If you can get downstairs on a Friday, be prepared for a full afternoon of great food, fun, and drinks! Go with friends you like to spend time with. Always exceptional and has kept its lofty standards even with the new ownership.

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!
