Wonderfully private and subdued. Very excellent service. The food was just delicious. The clientele was attractive, polite and you could tell they'd been coming here for years probably with their parents and grand parents. Some had a particular waiter they asked for and a particular...More

Sunday night. Sport coat required. Without reservations, expect a wait. You'll also be sitting on the first floor. With a reservation, you're on the quieter second floor. Food was average.

If you're looking for a classic New Orleans experience that seems like a step back into the golden age of New Orleans cuisine, this is the place to eat. However, be warned: although the waiter will offer you a menu, the best thing to do...More

Let me start by saying the service was the biggest joke I've ever witnessed. HOWEVER, the food was actually delicious. We were treated like trash and spoke to in a manner no one should ever be spoken to. We were not acting out or doing...More

I was lucky enough to go on a day when the fish of the day was pompano. The meat was soft and sweet, but the sauce was really rich. It was worth trying.

We never miss a chance to visit Galatoire when in New Orleans. The food is outstanding, the service impeccable, and the cocktails first rate. The Godchaux salad is a must, along with any of the fresh fish prepared in the Meuniere style. The bread served...More

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
