“It's all about the duck...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2008

It's all about the duck. And gumbo, butternut shrimp bisque, etc. Very friendly staff, beautiful homey atmosphere... got to meet Chef Frank! Desserts are just as amazing; I'm so glad we were able to try some (cafe au lait creme brulee, what am I going to do w/out you?)

“Outstanding meal - Wonderful service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2008

What a great experience. TripAdvisor reviews were right on target. One of the finest meals my wife and I have ever had anywhere. I had roast duck with cornbread stuffing while my wife had a Mahi-Mahi filet. Both were just outstanding, well prepared and seasoned. Service was prompt and friendly. Be advised - make your reservations early as they are hard to get.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2008

We went to see the Sugar Bowl. Met Sara on the plane who told us about Brigtsen's. Absolutely wonderful. Rooms were cozy, diners were friendly, staff really really nice with service that I haven't seen in ages. Food was superb. I have recommended this restaurant to everyone. Thank you Sara.

“True Southern Hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2008

A wonderful evening in New Orleans! As a party of eight, we arrived for our reservation and were immediately seated to a lovely round table in a cozy and intimate room. Everything was fabulous the entire evening... service, atmosphere and excellent food. We could not have had a better time, and the entire staff made us all feel warm and welcome. This is truely a southern gem that should not be missed when wanting a taste of New Orleans. Make your reservations now!
