I was taken to dinner on Valentine's evening at this very, special restaurant. I love the old, authentic feel of the place. The service and food were really great. It's one of the best restaurants in the French Quarter and a great place to try, at least once!

Galatoire's may be one of the best restaurants i New Orleans right now, Very nice style, although males have to wear a JACKET, which was easily solved at the entrance by lending one - it even looked quite nice. Menu selection was very good and the food we had was excellent, wines too. Prices are medium to upper level! Can... More

My wife and I have been to New Orleans many times but had never been to Galatoire's. We decided to have lunch there. We were greeted at the door and quickly seated. There were lots of wait staff and they were very friendly and accommodating. The decor of the restaurant was good but certainly not super elegant(this is the downstairs... More

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.
