Just returned from app. my 20th trip to The Big Easy. Love the city. This time was different though. Upon approaching what was once my favorite eating establishment, I did a double take. There was an individual outside drumming up business for the place.(not seen before) Upon entering, I immediately noticed all waitresses dressed in exactly the same dress.(not seen... More

Dining here was a pleasure. I had the Gulf Shrimp served with fries. There were a lot of shrimp on the platter. The price was reasonable. I will dine there again.

We love many places in the French Quarter to eat and many outside, but Maspero's always draws us back. We really enjoy it during colder weather because the French Onion Soup never disappoints. Oh, and the $1 strawberry daq!

Love this café. The roast beef po-boy is to die for.... Have been coming here for over 20 years. Always make it a point to eat here Food is always reasonable priced for the quarter and I have never been disappointed with the food or service. I recommend it to everyone that goes to NOLA.

Today we were in town for a concert and knew what we were having for dinner-the muffuletta! Our waitress Brandi was incredible. We also shared a side of red beans & rice. She recommended the white peach sangria and did not disappoint. Great start to a great evening!!

You can absorb New Orleans by osmosis just by sitting in this place. Right off Jackson Square it is perfectly located. We ate Cafe Du Monde In the morning, traversed the square and had Maspero for lunch. Food is better than good but not great although my wife will argue that the red beans and rice are excellent. Prices are... More

The bartender was super friendly- the food was just ok. It's very budget friendly for the French quarter. Maybe a good place to take kids so they can get fried food but foodies stay away.

I have been to Cafe Maspero several times. On my last visit I brought several colleagues from across the country, they raved about the food. It is a traditional New Orleans experience muffaleta and all.

This place was praised by one of our tour bus drivers for their french onion soup. Yum yum. The only place we came back to twice during our week in NO. French onion soup, red beans and rice with fried chicken, and muffalatta. Great service from Jennifer and Trinity. Easy location from our hotel. On our list for the next... More

This is always one of my go-to places when I'm in New Orleans so I was surprised to find I hadn't written a review yet. All of the sandwiches here are good and they are huge--easily enough to feed two people. My favorite is the roast beef, which in other places is not really something I would order, but the... More
