Great food, great service and great prices.

We had a very nice meal here and were surprised by just how reasonable the prices were. This is a very busy restaurant and it never seemed to get any quieter, that shows how good it is.

My husband & I popped in here to get out of the rain. We were seated in the front cafe area ~ not dressed for the dining room. The staff was was nice, offered suggestions and gave us time to decide. The cafe area is very noisy, only 1/2 the seats were filled and it was difficult to hear our... More

Food was expensive but very tasty. The lady who seated us and brought drinks was super nice. One thing that can put you off at a high priced delicious meal, however, is an extremely arrogant waiter. Who needs it! There are a lot of great places to eat in New Orleans!!

On your first night in NOLA this is a good choice. All of the delicious, unique and intriguing New Orleans food is available and is deliciously prepared. Desserts are sensational!

House salad was quite good. Redfish with Cajun potatoes average. Bourbon milk dessert was liquid with ice cream and pecan pie flavors. It was different and tasty. What detracted from my experience was how cold the restaurant was. The waiter brought me tablecloths to put over my legs and shoulders. But a restaurant this cold chills the food faster so... More

MardiGras weekend, and still fairly quick seating, awesome food and good staff. Could not have been happier. Don't forget the Bourbon milk punch. It is like Christmas and your Birthday!

I have been going to Brennan restaurants for 40 years and have never had a bad meal, but the Bourbon House was terrible. I ordered fried shrimp and they brought me a plate where the fries were cold and the shrimp looked and tasted like it had been sitting under a hot lamp since lunch. When I pointed this out... More

Bourbon House on Bourbon Street in the French Quarter is strategically placed for exploring the district. The food is a fine representative of the New Orleans style - everything seems be an excuse for butter, crab and butter. The crab cakes were tasty - they are smooth and fine not chunky like other styles. The red fish was served with... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
