This is not fine dinning, it is eating like New Orleanians do. Red beans and rice, seafood gumbo, oyster and artichoke soup, roast beef po-boy, etc. They are known for trout almandine, and the turtle soap, but you can not go wrong with their delicious New Orleans "red gravy".

We were entertaining out of town guests and always looked to Mandina's as our go-to place. Not anymore. We were treated with indifference and stood at the bar, ordered drinks and were basically ignored by the host. Our meals, which consisted of Po Boys, seafood, gumbo and appetizers, arrived in no particular order. Our party was quite perplexed and disappointed... More

Took a local's advice and ate at Mandina's. A short 10 minute wait on a Saturday night, and our group of 8 was seated. I ordered the fried soft-shell crab..and oh my...it was delicious! Servings were huge, and everyone in our party enjoyed their food. East to access from the French Quarter via the trolley, or a short ride via... More

We had eaten here with our New Orleans daughter and her family several years ago and thought we would give it another try today. This is a highly rated restaurant but we have found it to be very average on both occasions. Salads were good, bread was very average, french fries were below average (why does a famous restaurant like... More

Mandinas is a classic restaurant that serves New Orleans-inspired Italian dishes. I had heard about Mandina's for a while, but never tried it out so decided to try lunch there. Overall, the portions are very large and the food is good - definitely not healthy but good Italian comfort food. I had ordered the eggplant sticks plus the eggplant parmesan.... More

Food was excellent although the portions are huge, I had to take more than half of it home. Our server was a lovely lady and there was a good atmosphere in the place as the olympics was on and the customers where cheering the athletes on. Great place, might back before I leave NOLA.
