We had just gotten into New Orleans and wanted to try Cajun food immediately. Mandina's was a short walk from the apartment that we stayed at. WOW! The place looked slam packed but we only had to wait about 10-15 minutes for a table. The food was beyond amazing. We had the gumbo, turtle soup, and crawfish etouffe. The service... More

I prefer their fried seafood to their plate lunches and dinners. It is a great neighborhood restaurant. The dining rooms are large and can be very loud and they often have folks at the bar because it can get crowded. It still possesses all of its New Orleans charm.

The best thing on the menu is the trout meniere and turtle soup. The Italian food is about like any other place. Prices are fair.

A local couple we met at another restaurant recommended this place & they steered us to a great place for Italian food & seafood. The food was all delicious-we had the veal parmesan, chicken parmesan & the shrimp po-boy (1/2). Each entree could have easily fed 2 people. The salad was good & the bread pudding looked inviting but we... More

Not much atmosphere if you are talking about fine dining. Not the most sophisticated place in NOLA. Not the best location...although not bad. However, this is where all the locals go because they know where the good food is located. Very good food. Full of lawyers and judges. I get the impression many deals have been made over the years...

Wonderful 1/2 block walk from Canal Street Inn. Very local feel, fills up fast and can be crowded during prime dinner time.Received my dinner to go and ate in the beautiful gardens of Canal Street Inn!
