Ate at the oyster bar at the front of Bob Brennan's Bourbon House restaurant. Had I been paying attention to the oyster shucker in front of me I would have notices they don't rinse off the Gulf oysters before they shuck and serve them. As my friend had already ordered and eaten a half dozen, before I noticed, there was... More

This is a must stop for the city’s finest Sazerac; properly prepared and presented (and even if you have to take one to go, it will be prepared in the cocktail glass that has been chilled with ice and has the rim swiped with lemon twist before being transferred to your to go cup). Steak here is top cut, prepared... More

This place was average. The oysters Rockefeller were extremely salty with way too much spinach. The prices high and food quality nothing to rave about. The location very busy and a super loud restaurant. Acme was better.

The back bar is the place to go to find an amazing array of bourbons to try while you’re waiting for a table and making you feel like upper class. Even though it was quite packed on that Friday night, we only had to wait about 20 minutes. As we were seated, I have to admit, I was really impressed... More

My friend and I went for Mardi Gras. We thought we would have to wait forever, but we actually got a spot in about 10 minutes. It is a full on five star restaurant and is not cheap. However, my friend and I got about four appetizers and a glass of wine each. We put the order together and split... More

There were many things bad about my wife and I's visit to this restaurant. First was the extremely slow service - the slowest I've ever received at a restaurant in New Orleans. We were told when we first arrived that we would have two servers attending to us, which I thought would result in us getting twice the service. Instead... More

Really liked the bartenders & shuck-er (Capt. Curt). They were very friendly and fun to be around. The atmosphere and cleanliness drew us in. We went back 3 times and would go back...darn had to go home.

The Bourbon House is quite elegant in appearance, but average in every other way. Some of the food was outstanding, but some not so much. Service was also lackluster. To be specific, we ordered the oysters Beaujolais which is by far one of the best oyster dishes I have ever tasted. I wanted to lick the plate when there was... More
