This stop, by far, was the best in New Orleans !! Not only did they have a children's menu, but on it, they had something that our son could eat !! When we came up to the hostess, we asked to see the children's menu. Happy to see it would benefit us, we proceeding to get a table. Our waiter... More

Picked this place on a whim and would never regret it. The server was so friendly and gave us pointers on where to go for po boys (Parasols and something else right next to it - basically similar dynamic to Pat and Geno's here in Philly). Partner got the shrimp and cheese grits which he enjoyed. I had the chicken... More

I picked this place because of it's history (my husband is a history buff) & it was recommended by a fellow Chicagoan. I had the Crescent City meal (jambalaya, gumbo & crawfish etouffee) & loved it! My husband hates seafood, but there were plenty of other options for him. The picky man even said he'd go back again for the... More

The service was very friendly and the food was very good. The onion soup was excellent. I would have given them a 4 star but the bananas foster cheesecake that was on the site's menu was nonexistent. That was one of the reasons I went to Pierre's.

Our first time in New Orleans and came across this place on a Monday night. The sampler was excellent, the fried catfish was flaky, tender and melted in your mouth. One in our party got the shrimp and grits and his wife is now on a quest to match the grits! The bread pudding with ice cream was simply delicious... More

My husband and I found this little gem when we were first in New Orleans 17 years ago. It's still there with it's thick rock walls and excellent menu. Excellent crab cakes and friendly, attentive service.

Over all, the food was fine. However I learned a valuable lesson - NEVER order a steak in a town known for it's seafood! The menu said "Prime Rib" & the waiter called it a Rib Eye... It was more of a Mystery cut of meat! It was tough, had a lot of fat, & I would not recommend to... More

This is very authentic New Orleans cuisine. We ate there multiple times and the food was beyond a doubt everything and more than what I was expecting. The crab cakes are to die for and shrimp and grits(i am a yankee by the way) will make you come back again. The managers name slips my recollection, but I do know... More

Found this place for breakfast our first morning in NO. It was very good and the service was prompt and friendly. We decided to go back for an afternoon drink and small bite one day as we knew we would be eating later but had not done lunch. The bartender was very friendly and made some good suggestions. The shrimp... More
