Everything was well done. Excellent service and food. Lots of great choices. My only criticism is that although the dining room was big and interesting, I would prefer to have the lighting toned down a little and perhaps a candle or two instead. Kind of felt like a big cafeteria.

Excellent food in the heart of the Quarter. Our friends made the reservation weeks in advance, as it has been their favorite in the past. We like the required sport coat policy, there was a cute family nearby with boys all dressed up- like the good 'ol days. Our waiter, in our opinion, was rude, condescending, and again, in our...

Galatoire's combines both the best qualities of New Orleans food and culture. Even though on Bourbon Street, it is a restaurant that locals go to, not just tourists; that says much. One of the reasons is that year after year, you can count on its standards. Good food, good atmosphere, what more can you ask for.

This mainstay of the French Quarter is all that you could want in a fine restaurant in New Orleans with one exception: it can be very noisy! On a Friday or Saturday night it can be very difficult to talk to your table partners but that can be part of the fun. The food is some of New Orleans' best... More

Our appetizer was a trio of cold shrimp salad, cold crab salad and fried hysteria and it was wonderful as was the wedge with an excellent blue cheese dressing. However, my filet was not nearly as good as what my husband grills but the cream spinach was yummy. All in all, it was a very good meal but I wish... More

Gotta be honest, as a native this is my favorite restaurant, many memories over the years. Had dinner there tonite with friends from New York and Florida, friends who had never been there. One thing I have to give this restaurant credit for besides the great food and service is the traditions of New Orleans. As we were leaving about... More

I highly recommend this wonderful restaurant. We went here for lunch and had a great dinning experience. The service was attentive and gracious. Our server was outstanding with her recommendations. The food was well prepared and seasoned perfectly. I had Lemon Fish and my wife had the fried soft shell crab.

We have been eating here for years and I was fortunate to have dinner there on this trip. I still think this is on of the best restaurants in New Orleans. The food and service are outstanding. I've always heard the locals love it and I can see why!

We had lunch reservations this past weekend. One of our friends recommended the restaurant. I checked the website which was lovely but not very accessible. I noticed there was one sentence at the bottom of one of the inaccessible pages that said 'Jackets after 5pm'. That was all. I called and made lunch reservations for our group (4). There was... More
