We recently visited New Orleans and Arnaud's was on our to-do list. We made a reservation a week prior to arriving. Once inside, the atmosphere of the building was one of elegance and sophistication. The wait staff was simply amazing & courteous. Very professional yet still engaging and fun. The food was in a world of it's own. All four... More

A party of four for the lunch time special, three courses and a side for around $20.00. Additionally, daily cocktail specials were cents, limit 3, one needs no more for lunch. The wait staff is prompt, friendly and professional. Glenda is knowledgeable and patient when it came to the menu. She explained each item and how it is prepared for... More

Arnaud's Restaurant went above & beyond what my husband and I expected with their food and service!! The charming atmosphere of the main dining room was very romantic and elegant which created a relaxed feel, rather than the stiffness that many restaurants portray. There is a dress code at Arnaud's. As this is a fine dining establishment, that is to... More

Great restaurant located close to bourbon street. We stopped by their bar, French 75, for some cocktails. The Bar has a great atmosphere and some specially drinks which where all good. In the restaurant all the food is great but I could recommend the turle soup for a starter and veal wohl for main course. Topping off the evening is... More

Excitedly dragged the whole family out to get the famed bananas foster ...one member of our party didn't have a collared shirt with him so he merely wore a nice shirt. The rest of us were dressed up. We were turned away :( super disappointing...

Very much enjoyed our meal in the charming main dining room at Arnauds. They ask that gentlemen wear jackets for dinner.....Yea....if you are going out for a fine meal the food always seems to taste better when all parties are dressed for an occasion. The food was delicious and so fresh and if you like Cafe Brulot it was worth... More

I have been coming to NOLA for years and have just recently discovered Arnauds. I always knew it was there but had never tried it. Apparently, I have missing out! This place is excellent. You must try the speckled trout. It is crispy and absolutely delicious. My friend had the Pontchartrain and it was fabulous as well. The service is... More

Reading some of the reviews, I expected to have a really great meal at Arnaud's. The service was attentive for sure in this old school restaurant. In a setting so close to Bourbon St., it is a classy place. I started with the Arnaud's Salad. It was fresh and very good. My husband had the Shrimp Arnaud which was tasty... More

Went for Sunday brunch! really great fun, good food, terrific jazz band. The restaurant is elegant but not stuffy. My abiding memory is when the band played "Sweet Caroline" and the whole restaurant joined. The staff and Maitre D were really really good and warm. Thank you for a great memory!

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
