We met up with some locals we know here, The fact there was a 20 minute wait for a table said this was the right choice.this gave us time to catch up and enjoy the company. The food was good the service was above and beyond.Would recomment this to anyone

Had the seafood gumbo and garlic bread and boy was it delicious. I was alone but promptly seated at a very nice table. Nice wait staff, good service. On my way out I met the loveliest couple and we chatted some. All around great meal.

Very consistent, popular Mid City New Orleans neighborhood restaurant. Casual dining with attentive service but does bog down under high volume at times. Turtle soup is a standard. Fried seafood is all good. Daily specials are just home style comfort food you will enjoy. Buttered French Bred rounds compliment whatever you get. This is a great place to go before... More

I was brought to Mandina's many years ago by locals. The food has always been delicious and the service (pre Katrina especially) has been OK. The best turtle soup, trout meuniere, and oyster po'boys.

No, it's not Galatoire's or Commander's, but Mandina's is a New Orleans favorite for local seafood and Italian--a combo often found in the city. It's on Canal Street and a streetcar ride from downtown. My favs are the oyster po-boys (get the "half," it's big enough), shrimp po-boys, roast beef po-boys, all the pasta dishes, the eggplant dishes, the onion... More

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
