dinner after music festival

We walked over after the music festival ended. We had a sample plate and a salad and both were good. All of the food they served to nearby tables looked and smelled great. I’d come back if we ever visit again.

Out of the 5 days we were in NOLA we ate here 3x. It's THAT good. We walked by and saw this restaurant had great atmosphere so we went in for a drink. There was nowhere to sit but Angel, the hostess, worked hard and found us a place to sit. The waitress was very friendly and even though we... More

We were the first table seated at the restaurant on a not so busy weekday. The service was fantastic and the food...the food was even better. My daughter had a shrimp poboy and I had two appetizers. Great meal and reasonably priced as well! Can't wait to go back!

We stopped in for an afternoon snack and drinks and were very impressed by the food and the service. Our server Keila recommended the cucumber cooler as a refreshing drink and she was spot on with the recommendation. We shared the seafood pistolettes and BBQ Shrimp. The seafood was unbelievably good and the size of the shrimp was amazing. This... More

My old standard for breakfast and/or dinner. Grilled alligator is amazing. Love this history of the building and decor.

This was my first time in New Orleans. I'll preface my review by saying that I possibly had unrealistic expectations regarding the food, in general. I thought Pierre's was average. I ordered a fried shrimp po boy and found it to be pretty dry. There was very little if any sauce that added that special creole zing, as I had... More

If you are wandering the French Quarter, this is a good stop for lunch. Everything is a taste of Louisiana cooking and you can't really go wrong. Make sure to try the fried alligator!!!! Attire: It's casual, whatever you are walking around in. Shirt, shorts, shoes are probably required. Parking - find a garage, take the trolley to the French... More

Food is wonderful, infused Bloody Mary is fantistic, but the real reason to go is to have Mary as your server!! She is the best and should be running the place!!

We were walking the French Quarter when we came by Pierre Maspero's. We decided to eat here and we were not sorry. It was worth the 15 minute wait to be seated. Not familiar with New Orleans cuisine, we asked our waitress Shelly (she was the best). She made recommendations and we went with them. My Husband told her what... More
