Galatoire's is old New Orleans. Fun, loud, exuberant. Food was very good. The service was attentive and personable inspire of our waiter not being here.

They still observe a dress code so my shorts were a no-no. However, they have a bar and a less formal policy right next door, so GOPHER IT! The only difference is that you do NOT see the customers in throw back attire from year's past. Give you an idea of the place IFyou have never dined there - most... More

A jacket is required but fret not they have several to choose from at the door. The Matre 'D, Joe P escorted us to our table & was a hit with the ladies. After cocktails I ordered Turtle soup along with Trout Almondine for an entre. Both were excellent. The service was the best I've had at a restaurant in... More

I so wanted our experience at Galatoire's to be as I had remembered 25 years ago. It was good, but not what I expected. We were there early on a Sunday evening, and the main dining room was 75% occupied. We never complain or create a fuss at restaurants...super easy going. In retrospect, my wife's filet mignon was ordered 'medium'... More

visited this French Quarter restaurant while in New Orleans on our honeymoon and we were pleasantly surprised by the ambiance and quality of the food and service. It has a beautiful old world atmosphere with white tablecloths and formally dressed waitstaff. The meal was beyond delicious! It's a place I would recommend to anyone.

I've been coming to Galatoire's since I was born. My grandfather had a waiter at Galatoire's and now his son is MY father's waiter -- place is a total establishment. From the butter & french bread course to the Galatoire Goute to the trout almandine (or filet mignon topped with crab meat and béarnaise), the place kills. It's also just... More

Whenever I go to NOLA, Galatoire's is always my first stop for dinner. I had the Pompano, sauteed with a butter, lemon, parsley, caper sauce. Probably the best thing I had the whole trip. I also had the potato souffles (which are an appetizer, but I incorporated them into my entree). These delightful things are shatteringly thin, crisp, airy and... More

It was good, but not great. The atmosphere was the highlight of the evening. Service was OK, but not what was expected. Food was average for this type of establishment. We had the fried shrimp as an appetizer. Nothing special at all. Glad it was not ordered as a meal. The meals were crab meat in a buchemelle & hollandaise... More

Our evening meal was quite a dining experience! Our waiter was Named Shelley ... He was a delight! Knowledgeable, very service oriented. He did not rush us when he saw that we were enjoying a slower pace for our meal. Everything we ordered was so tasty. Fried oysters & fried soft-shelled crab appetizer were awesome! Our lemon fish topped with... More

Great setting with private room and outstanding service for business gathering. Nice variety on menu and vast wine selection. Disappointing that my steak was served well done instead of medium as requested. Not what I expected for a restaurant that specializes in steaks. Others enjoyed the chicken and shrimp dishes.

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.
