Yesterday around 2:30pm we ate here. This was probably about the fifth time we have been here. Customer service has always been great and the food as well. However, the young man that was taking our order was not friendly and acted like he just...didn't want to be there. The food was amazing as always.More

We called in and got take out and everything was delicious and arrived hot to our rental ! The gentleman who answered the phone recommended we get the Geaux Geaux shrimp because they were out of meat pies and we loved it. Blackened fish plate,...red beans and rice, and bread pudding were all great- down to steamed broccoli.More

During our winter vacation and Covid, we had a little fun doing a Gumbo taste test between restaurants claiming to be winners for best gumbo. I picked up some from Cafe Nola and also Frisky Dolphin. The seafood gumbo from CN didn't have much meat...in it, but had a good flavor(had claws in it as well). The gumbo from FD was full of meats. We ended up combining the two for great flavor and plenty of meat. I will say the phone call and pickup at Cafe Nola was not very friendly.More

We ordered a whole muffuletta and fries on Saturday afternoon. Both my husband and I are from Louisiana and we have high standards when it comes to traditional "Louisiana" food. Cafe NOLA's muffuletta was THE BEST! I would hold it up to the Central Grocery...version any day. It has a liberal amount of olive salad, most of which was on the lower bread so as not to fall out as much while eating. They were also perfectly liberal with the cheese (some other local versions we tried had too little cheese), The proportion of meat to cheese was perfect and the bread was super fresh. We just finished eating and we so enjoyed the muffuletta and the fries which were equally great, that I was not only inspired but obligated to post this review in gratitude for the excellent meal. Thank you Cafe NOLA. We are looking forward to our next order.More

During COVID, we are dining outside or getting takeout. We ate outside on the patio, which was heated. The process is find your seat, look over the menu, and place order at the register. Fish and chips, enormous serving and served piping hot. Half a...muffleleta felt like a whole one. Leftovers for sure. Wonderful, piping hot beignets for dessert. Gem of a restaurant for a taste of New Orleans cuisine.More

From the on set of our visit the staff was uninterested in waiting on my family and could have cared less about the food they served us. I ordered a muffuletta, which took 10 minutes to tell me they could not make because their 'staff...expert' has not shown up for 2 days???? My wife ordered a bbq shrimp po boy with no mayo or tomatoes...and of course her sandwich came with them. I when to ask if they could correct the mistake, I was told I would have to get back in line and order another sandwich. To the own of this restaurant, "what is wrong with your staff???"More

Nice place to eat with a possible view of the bay. Really good food, but lacking in service. You go to a counter to give your order and pay for the food in advance. I never did like a pricey restaurant that asked for payment...before you tasted the food. And then asked for a tip. Drinks were self serve. Condiments were in shared containers on the table. You were expected to bus your table on leaving. Still the food was great.More

This is the fourth time we have eaten here. The service is always fantastic and so is the food! Very nice view of the bay as well! Love the outdoor seating area.

Sorry, I am just seeing this, but no to future travelers, a lot of stairs, no elevator. But a very good restaurant that could provide take-out or delivery for another option.
