Mandina's is a Tradition.

Mandina's has been around for a long time and the food is always good. The service is also very good and reasonable prices.

I'm not going to bother writing a standard review and regale you with how good this dish is or that dish was, etc. Mandina's is a New Orleans institution. Local, casual, good value, varied menu of New Orleans and Italian with lots of seafood, pastas po'boys, etc. Everything here is stick to your ribs good and I can't say enough... More

I have always been a fan. Every return trip home isn't complete without a stop or two to Mandinas. Trip #1 was lunch. Shrimp Creole. This was actually disappointing. Just bland. Onion rings and kids chicken tenders were good. Fried, right? Trip #2 was dinner on Monday night. Got right in. Great service. Split the seafood platter. Red beans were... More

I was in NOLA for 4 days and went to Mandina's twice. The gumbo was so good I couldn't get enough in just one visit! The shrimp PoBoy was the best I've had in New Orleans. One couple ordered fried oysters and it came with 24 delicious oysters, cooked to perfection. I loved the place and will make it a... More

I enjoyed the ambiance, the setting and the attention from staff. I ordered my favorite Shrimp and Oyster Poboy Sandwich dressed and Artichoke Soup. They were a bit slow getting it prepared. Once it arrived, I was very satisfied.

We live less than a block from Mandina's & we eat there at least weekly. If you're visiting New Orleans, take the Canal Street streetcar to Mandina's. There's a stop a few yards from the restaurant. They don't take reservations, so Fri. & Sat. nights and Sunday afternoons can be hectic with a long line going out the door. It's... More

The pink building is filled with great food. The daily specials are awesome. You have to try the grilled shrimp. It's awesome. I've had the gumbo and fried shrimp also. You can't go wrong at this place.
