Best food in New Orleans

Everything from the service, drinks and the food was absolutely amazing. We started off with the Blue Crab Beignets which were out of this world. We shared the fried pork chops and shrimp and grits.

Had a late dinner reservation. Started with drinks and then had the ricotta dumplings. Beat appetizer we have ever had. Followed with tenderloin for me and shrimp and grits for my wife. Both were done perfectly. The sauces on all were absolutely divine. The service from Brandon was excellent. He was very attentive and kept our drinks topped off. Desserts... More

Nice location and ambiance although loud and difficult to converse especially when sitting at a table with 5 or 6 people. Food great, the only negative were the waiters, bad attitude and not corteous. They treat you like they are doing you a favor by serving you, no matter how good the food is, they leave you with a bad... More

Our dinner at LPG was, by far, our favorite fine-dining meal in NOLA. We liked it MUCH better than the Commander's Palace, actually. The restaurant is small, romantic, full of locals, and in a great neighborhood removed from the crowds in the FQ. The crawfish pasta appetizer was one of the best things we've eaten, and my wife was immediately... More

I've been wanting to try La Petite for quite sometime and it sure did not disappoint! The brunch atmosphere is great, open, airy and lots of windows. Our table of 4 started out each with our own Big Red Hammer, what a bloody! It wasn't the best bloody mary I've had, but it's more a novelty item with all the... More

I agree with the other reviewers who found the food to be amazing. We shared the beignets, ricotta dumplings, shrimp and grits, chicken, beef tenderloin, and grouper special and found each to be superb. Our desserts were a little eclectic but equally good. The only downside was our waiter who was cool, never smiled and was extremely unhelpful.

One of the best places I have been in a while. The Blue Crab Beignets and fettuccine apps were delicious. I have the shrimp and grits which were very tasty and all the other entrees were loved at the table. And great service even on a busy night. Highly recommend if you want something outside the French Quarter

Everything we had was excellent. A beautiful decorated restaurant that was surprisingly only half-full. The blue crab beignets as you can see from other reviews were excellent. The octopus with chow chow and chimichurri was great although I would have liked it a bit crispier. I had a rabbit confit with greens and mushroom which was a tad dry but... More

We dropped in here on impulse and had dinner at the bar (which serves the full menu) since there were no available tables. The food was outstanding. I had the braised short rib(singular) appetizer, speckled trout entree and mascarpone-cardamom cheesecake. Husband had the crab beignets and shrimp and grits. Everything was perfect and the bartenders were really friendly, a great... More

Delicious lunch on a stormy Saturday. Beignets, Shrimp and Grits, Fettucine with crawfish and butterscotch pudding were all standouts. Service was efficient but slightly stand offish. The room is simple, but warm and welcoming. The prices are reasonable for this style of food, but portions are definitely small, which made it tough for sharing.
