Oh my goodness! Perfect

Great relaxed atmosphere. Quick service. Delicious crafted drinks and perfectly prepared food! One of the best restaurants I ate at! I had the Creole King drink(phenomenal ) and we split fried green tomatoes (pics of both shown). We also had the crab cakes for our main meal...no picture made it... read more

Stopped in for a quick drink and fell in love with the Bloody Mary! They use a house infused vodka with the kind of spice you expect from southern creole cuisine. This is a must to try if you're in the neighborhood.

Ok, we went to many restaurants during our stay in New Orleans; and I can honestly say this one is worth repeating! If you enjoy breakfast food, order the Louisiana Lost Bread. Perfection!

The only reason this got 2 stars was for the fact that they had $2 strawberry margaritas. I probably stopped in 5-7 times for them throughout our trip, but quickly learned to stop there. We ate dinner here one night and the food was awful, the waitress was terrible, and it was a complete disaster. Definitely won't try the food... More

Victor A, General Manager at Original Pierre Maspero's, responded to this review

Good afternoon Carolyn, My name is Victor Attical Jr. and I'm the General Manager here at The Original Pierre Maspero's and I was wondering if you possibly had us confused with another restaurant. At our location we do not serve any drink specials nor do we sell or serve $2.00 Strawberry Margaritas. I appreciate the feedback but was just wanting... More

This place has the best French Onion Soup I have ever eaten, and I consider myself to be a French Onion Soup connoisseur. I also tried the Fish Po Boy which was decent at best. If you like French Onion Soup you need to stop in for a bowl.

Wow. Not only do the food exceed expectations, it arrived quickly, and we found the service excellent and friendly. I even enjoyed reading the history of the building off the back of the menu. I would highly recommend Maspero's as a great lunch spot in the French Quarter! Nicely done Pierre Maspero's!

We showed up with a party of 5 on a Tuesday evening. The hostess said 20 minutes and it was less. She explained that the kitchen was backed up so it would be a few minutes before our server could be with us. He surprised us and showed up right away. The food was fantastic! The service was excellent throughout... More
