Ate here our last night in NO so we had already had a great sampling of NO cusine. However, I wasn't disappointed here. The boiled shrimp were really good, as well as the side salad and hush puppies. Drinks were good, service was friendly and guick.

My hubby was starving when we arrived in town, and wanted to eat at the first restaurant we came across. My list of "Must Eat At" did not include the French Market Cafe, but I agreed (to keep the peace). Food was great and service fast! I ordered 1/2 a muffaletta and cannot imagine anyone eating a whole one by... More

French Market is the perfect combination of location with excellent Louisiana cuisine at a decent price. The service was friendly and very efficient and the oysters and jambalaya were absolutely amazing. The place always looks busy and for very good reason, the food is definitely fresh. But there is also plenty of seating, so don't worry. If you're looking for... More

We can't speak to the food because we stopped by there in the evening for a drink. A band was playing jazz and the evening was sweet. We ordered strawberry daiquiris, which had been presented on the menu as using fresh fruit. Well, the bright red color indicated that we were not mistaken when we we saw the bartender use... More

Uninspired cuisine, loud dining rooms, adequate service, why bother? Despite the come on of seeing the basket come out of the boiler in the front window, go to any of the seafood restaurants in the Quarter and get a better meal.

We visit this restaurant every time we are in New Orleans (at least once a year) for the past 15 years. The specialty we stop for is the seafood - raw oysters, crawfish, and boiled shrimp. All are always excellent! Lately they've improved the land food also and the burgers are great now too. Give it a try, you won't... More

The food here was really good but a bit pricey; we were in the middle of the tourist area so it was expected. The music and musicians were amazing and we enjoyed sitting outside in the heat and humidity just to listen to the band. You must try the Gyro salad as this dish is enormous and so delish.

Went here our final night in New Orleans on a Business trip, we wanted to go to another restaurant, which was closed, so we ended up going here and very glad we did. I had the Bayou Sampler, which consisted of Red Beans and Rice, Jambalaya and Shrimp Maque Choux. This wasn't my first choice as I wanted to get... More
