The menu choices are very diverse and the portions are generous. The wait staff is attentive and the price is reasonable considering the caliber of food served. We eat here at least once a quarter and have never had a poor meal.

Really enjoyed our time there. Had a young man who recommended some of their best recipes. He was well-versed and very attentive. Had the Chicken Angelique and the Stuffed Snapper. Both were delicious, perfectly spiced and couldn't finish either. They need to pay more attention to the interior...some lights in the ceiling are hanging or broken, tape holding a speaker,... More

We went to Tope LA because of their #1 rating. When we arrived, we were hopeful for delightful meal. That hope bubble was soon burst.Salad was fair--not properly chilled, the presentation less than expected. The sugarcane vinegarette was good. Entree--salmon, small portion, about 1/4 inch thick, drowned in sauce. Sides were not seasoned properly--very bland. The fried Cornish hen had... More

Decent food, it was ok. Everyone's pasta dish was HUGE and left with Togo plates. The menu has a great variety- charbroiled oysters, burgers and sandwiches, lots of salads, fish, steaks, and noddles. Regulars love this place

Tope La is one of my favorite restaurants! I love the atmosphere and the privacy that the restaurant has to offer for business meetings or for date nights. The food is always consistent in taste & quality. I eat there at least once a month and will continue to give them my business.

Our family ate here on Father's Day for lunch. We had made reservations ahead of time since we were a large group of 12. To start off they sat our table in the line of the kitchen where every waiter had to pass by those of us seated with our backs to the dining area. The rest of us were... More

We enjoy Tope La when we are in the area. This morning was our first Sunday Brunch which was a pleasant treat! The menu has an amazing variety of old favorites and unique dishes to Tope La. I had the "Da Parish" Benedict. It's a SE Louisiana saying...St. Bernard Parish is "Da Parish". Not sure what I enjoyed the most,... More

I recently dined with my wife in Hammond. We were passing through from Covington and googled restaurants and found Tope La. The restaurant was very dark but our server made it much more welcoming than it looked. We had Michael, and he suggested one of the best fish dishes I've had which was the broiled redfish. He was such a... More

My wife and I have had many meals at this restaurant over the past 8 years and they have been very good - some more memorable than others 😎. My wife is gluten intolerant and one time we asked if the chef if he could fix gluten free pasta for her. He agreed, so we brought in a box of... More
