First, this place is only open four nights a week for four hours. Which says a lot, I think. The sausage platter and boudin was excellent. The bouillabasse was fantastic and so was the Louisiana drum. We tried the Abita Amber and Abita Purple Haze.... the Purple Haze was awesome. Its raspberry tones gave it a nice hint of fruit... More

My wife and I dined here on our first night in the French Quarter. There are a bewildering number of places to eat here, but for my money you can't go wrong with this unassuming, but charming little place. First, the service--while waiting for our drinks I remarked to one of the servers that I was really enjoying the funky... More

stopped for drinks at a lovely spot up the street (can't remember the name), but the bartender suggested we try Louisiana Bistro. Standing outside it doesn't look like much, but isn't that part of the charm. The chef was outside updating the chalkboard to include a Drunken Chicken Gumbo. After he made a relatively inappropriate joke about what he did... More

As suggested by several other reviews, my son and I decided to come here and try the "Feed Me" option. It turned out to be one of the most fun dining experiences we have ever had. Louisiana Bistro is a small place a block off of Bourbon Street and just around the corner from our hotel. I had seen some... More

Came across this cute restaurant walking through the French Quarter. It was a busy Saturday evening, but they seated me right away. The waiters were very friendly and the kitchen was accommodating with my gluten free diet. I had the fried green tomatoes (I was so excited they made them gluten free!), and the surf and turf. Everything was delicious.... More

We let the chef "feed us" with a 3 course option where the chef chooses what u eat. The first two selections were phenomenal, we got a smoked catfish and frog leg cheesecake and a deep fried alligator tail. The main course was a bit disappointing, fried chicken in BBQ sauce (skin wasn't nearly as crispy as it should have... More

3 BBQ shrimp is ok/good. A little light for sharing. The filet was very good. Crawfish was strong flavor and I wouldn't order again. The bread pudding is Absolutely Outstanding!!!! The flour less chocolate torte was very good.

My wife are tired of seafood after a week in New Orleans. We went to this venue after seeing it as we drove back to our hotel. They seated us without a reservation. The staff was friendly and service excellent. The food, starting with the salad, was incredible. Our main dishes pork and duck were world class and incredible. What... More

Nice ambiance, busy but not too noisy . Food interesting and well cooked. Good wine list compared to many. Friendly service. Decor a bit dated but that's part of the charm. A good choice.

During a 12-day gastro-vacation to New Orleans, I had supper at the Louisiana Bistro. As his website says, this is where the highly trained chef does the actual cooking instead of supervising the guy who does the supervising. Chef Mars also interacts with his customers, and his very enjoyable food and repartee was one of the most memorable highlights of... More
