This is apparently my Mom's new favorite place because we've gone back several times in the last month! Best tasting filet I've had in a long time. Courteous staff, consistent food prep/presentation, nice starter salads. I especially like the buttery garlic sauce you can get as an extra. We'll be back again soon!!

True to form Mardi Gras meeting place for locals. Great steaks and sides, reasonably priced wines, and a "you're sure to meet and see someone you know" atmosphere on a night when most places are closed. Well worth the wait--- and sure to become ever more popular as New Orleans Mid-City continues to revitalize.

Crescent City offers one of the best steaks in New Orleans. They offer a wonderfully dry aged steak cooked to your specific request. This is not the romance of the Chophouse or the elegant steakhouse setting of dicki Brennans but exudes the atmosphere of the bygone New Orleans neighborhood restaurant. From over a dozen visits I have never had a... More

You won't find a better steak for the money in New Orleans. Good service, an old time atmosphere, and a decent reasonably priced wine list. Not as fancy as some other steak houses, but the informal relaxed atmosphere is a pleasant change from other places.

It's the original sizzling steak restaurant. The reason they are still in business is because they continue to provide 4 star meals. Of all the steak restaurants in New Orleans, this is my favorite. The prices are very reasonable compared to all the others.

There is something different about Crescent City steaks and I'm not sure what it is. They are very fine and I always enjoy going there, but the steaks do not taste the same as in other venues. Just an observation, maybe not all that important, but pay attention the next time you go there and see if you agree. I... More

Over all the servers and bus persons were very helpful, attentive, and charming. They were friendly and laid back. They made us feel comfortable and at home. Ordered our steaks medium rare as is the correct way to order them and both came out perfect sizzling in butter. We had a Strip and a Ribeye. Cheaper than most steakhouses running... More

My parents gave my husband and me a gift certificate to Crescent City Steak House for our anniversary. Neither one of us had ever eaten there before last Saturday night. We were very pleased with the service and the food. We arrived at 9:15 and were done by 10:15. The sides were delicious and so was the steak. We both... More

After reading the reviews we decided to give Crescent City a try. Other reviews were either excellent or poor with few in the middle. Putting those aside we made an early reservation. When we arrived there was Bounce music blaring from across the street. Not a problem for me, but some diners may be put off by that. It was... More
