Great Late Night Dinner

It was recommended to visit this restaurant and we decided to go for a late night dinner at the bar. They had a lobster roll, which was delicious, and a cheese platter, which was perfect. Also the cocktails at the bar were wonderful. Staff was extremely nice and the atmosphere was great. Could... read more

Don't get me wrong. Galatoires has always been one of my favorite restaurants in New Orleans. The ambience is warm and welding. The wait staff is amazing. They are the best. The food couldn't be better. However, last night while dining there with dear friends we were subjected to the happy birthday song being sung by waiters to various patrons... More

I attended this restaurant for a business meal. There were a lot of appetizers that were passed around (in addition to a main course) and the best, by far, was the escargot appetizer. So buttery, so garlicky, and so delicious. Everything else was "ok" but I don't think I would go out of my way to attend again. Aside from... More

I have wanted to come here for lunch or dinner for years (ever since it was mentioned in Streetcar Named Desire) and finally made it. I was not disappointed! The waiter just could not have been more delightful. He was full of stories and just made the lunch such fun. We all had some version of shrimp for lunch. I... More

Visiting New Orleans with my husband and another couple, we were looking forward to yet another landmark restaurant in the French Quarter. We had visited this city with the same friends a few times in the last ten years. We made rhe reservation a week before we got here for a Tuesday night at 7 pm. We were told the... More

Friday lunch at Galatoire's is a New Orleans tradition. We dined on the crabmeat stuffed eggplant which is very good. The filet mignon was perfectly rare and served with the perfect au gratin potatoes. Caramel cup custard as a light dessert for e terrific finish. Service is great. This is a restaurant you visit for the classics and not the... More

Oysters Rockefeller best in the city. Shrimp remolaude too! Had the snapper sautéed with lump crab. Soufflé potatoes and asparagus with hollandaise also. Everything was fantastic. Best restaurant for old school creole in the city. Bar none. The cocktails were great too.

While Galatoire's has always had the decor of a old-fashioned men's barbershop[ (glass mirrored walls and hexagonal tile floor) the food is sublime! All delivered to you in a non-snobbish method by friendly waiters. Steak bernaise and trout almandine are but two of my favorite dishes. AND, no one looks down their nose if you oder iced tea. It can... More
