This was my 2nd time eating at Mandina's and it was good, just like the last time. We went on a Thursday night so it was not too crowded. Will definitely return.

We discovered Mandina's by accident several years ago and made it a "must visit" when we are in New Orleans. There is always a line to get in but it is well worth the wait. On this visit I ordered the shrimp po-boy and it was very fresh and delicious! The old house has a great charm and comfortable feel... More

We discovered this establishment two years ago, and we now have Mandina's on our "repeat when we come to New Orleans" list. Last night we decided to skip the traditional gumbo--- which is great, and po-boys-- which are absolutely fabulous--- and had the Italian fare. This food was beyond GREAT! The eggplant Parmesan with spaghetti was enough two and was....... More

On our trip to New Orleans to attend the Satchmo Summer Jazz Festival, a city we had visited several times as well as the jazz festival, we were very disappointed with the food we were served in restaurants we had visited in previous trips, the only good average price food was the one at the festival, very regional and tasty....

We had our first dining experience at Mandina's on Canal this evening and it was fantastic. I'm now asking myself WHY it took us nearly five years to locate this place but I can guarantee it will not be our last visit. Mandina's is a casual restaurant that caters to the locals with that unique blend of creole/french/italian food that... More

I've been to Mandina's several times over the years. We were in town for a long weekend and(friends) a younger local couple picked us up and took us to their favorite comfort food spot. These young professionals (an attorney and her banker husband) enjoy the local offerings that this neighborhood place offers. Her go to dish is the spaghetti and... More

We went there on recommendation of a number of locals and certainly we're not disappointed. Excellent Eggplants sticks and plenty of shrimp in the cocktail, great veal for the main.

I never saw the word "FRIED" so much on virtually any other menu in the country. I'm surprised the salads weren't fried. This was a favorite place of our friends so we went with them and their recommendation. Never again. I was able to get a piece of grilled fish, which was dry and overcooked. The peas and green beans... More

Best kept secret from tourists although not intentionally but few guests to the city venture up Canal to sample the food at this New Orleans landmark!
