Overpriced for the quality of the food. Should have had dinner at another restaurant. Ate here for the convenience since we were staying at hotel where the restaurant is located.

My husband and I were staying at a hotel not far from Bourbon House. We were planning to eat oysters at Felix's, but the wait was too long. We drifted over to Bourbon House where the wait for a table was half the time (they text you when your table is ready), but we were lucky enough to quickly snag... More

Ole Dickie Brennan (if hes still alive) is living off his reputation on this one. The house restaurant of the crown plaza is convenient to hotel guest, but that is about it. We went there for breakfast and were forced to break our fast in the poorly lit bar despite the main dining room being practically empty. The house eggs... More

Tonight my husband and I dined at Bourbon House. It was our first visit. At first I was a little nervous, thinking we'd be turned away because we weren't dressed in upscale casual attire. However, we weren't turned away for wearing our casual outfits. Also, we arrived at the restaurant fifty minutes earlier than our reservation. The hostesses pleasantly accommodated... More

Well I can tell you , the service was really good, the staff very friendly and happy. The food on the other hand, well it was average in flavor,( not worth writing home to... More

We hadn't booked but were seated within 5 minutes at around 8pm. Had the baked oyster trio and fried calamari to start - oysters were delicious and as good as I remembered from 3 years before. Calamari beautifully crisp - large portion! Mains were crab topped fish (drum fish I was told) and shrimp creole - although we were beaten... More

The veal and crab tasted more like country fried steak with some crab meat thrown on top. The medium steak was cooked nearly well done. The oysters were yummy, but you couldn't taste much oyster mostly tasted butter and garlic.

We ate here last night on our second visit in 2years - service is fantastic (thanks Kristee and Rachael). The food is amazing - we had the Roast Chicken in Jambalaya and the 12oz Steak, complemented by a Sazerac and Watermelon Mint Julip - will definitively be back again for more.

Absolutely great food in the centre of New Orleans. The baked oysters are divine, as was the shrimp combo. Great atmosphere and very attentive staff made this a great place to eat. Highly recommended.
