Great food, great staff, overall a great dinner!

We were in Atlanta for a business meeting and did not feel like getting the car out of the parking deck to find a place to eat so we asked at the front desk and they recommended Mckinnons Louisiana Restaurant. It was a short walk and we were pleasantly surprised with the overall experience. The... read more

We started at the bar for a few drinks before our meal. They have a piano player and "gentle" karaoke. It's very relaxing and sets the mood for dinner. They have a regular following with many guest having come for years and years. I was part of a group of five (two couples and a single). I had the soft... More

I would but my husband and I frequently eat in New Orleans, and had high expectations for this restaurant. First thing that was disappointing, was finding out of the prefix $45 menu which was not clearly advertised prior to reserving our dinner this evening. Secondly, the service was very slow, and waited nearly an hour for our entrée to arrive.... More

I live near the restaurant and have seen it several times but never tried it. Back in December 2014 I invited some friends and we went to the restaurant. Although from the outside it looks very simple, the inside is very elegant, and comfortable. We had appetizers and different plates, paired with a nice wine, and everything tasted delicious. Service... More

We went to this restaurant yesterday night Jan 11, 2015, wanted to enjoy some Louisiana Food. What a horrible mistake. The service was good but the dishes were overprized and sooo bad. I had a crab cake au gratin for $22 or more my friend had fish and my other friend took gombo with crab cake for appetizer. Seem like... More

Excellent "cajun/creole" food in upscale Buckhead location. Though I know the area very well, I somehow missed this place which I learned had been there for over 30 years! The actual location is deceiving and one could easily see how it is missed if you gravitate more towards the trendy, cosmopolitan ambiance and vibe. DO NOT be confused (though it... More

This place is high on my list of visit-again restaurants. This time, we took friends along, and enjoyed seeing them enjoy some of our most favorite dishes (the Chicken Liver appetizer, the Grouper Louisiane, Snapper Oscar etc). It was a little too warm in the dining room this time, but the live music coming from the bar area definitely distracted... More

From the moment we entered the doorway of this fine dining establishment, we were treated ROYALLY. Mr. Aziz met and seated us, Mr Ebbe (I believe that he was the Floor Manager on our two-couples-dinner-evening) took care of everything beyond that. MOST-Gracious attention to our every need. Very impressed! For the appetizer I had Oysters Rockefeller - four outstanding oysters... More

Being a New Orleans native and with many travels, folk always label there food N'awlins style. This place is awesome. The Oyster Rockerfella was great. This is a cool old school place; might I add I'm a youngster. If I enjoyed you will too!

When you walk thru the doors you are transported back in time where you are greeted by friendly faces and old school decor. Food is really good, and owner and staff make you feel like you are a part of this happy family. There is nothing they won't do to make your meal as enjoyable as possible. We keep going... More
