Easter Sunday night and hungry, we walked into the quarter cause we were staying nearby, Felix's and Acme were closed. Maspero's was open. I ordered the crawfish etoufee my date ordered the pisterlerros. Fifeteen minutes later the waitress comes and tells us they are out...of the pisterlerros. French onion soup is ordered. The meal arrives and the plate just out of the washer, is hotter then the etoufee. The onion soup tastes the same as everywhere else that opens an industrial can. I'm walking down Chartres complaining to my date about being robbed without a gun for forty five dollars at Maspero's clip joint. A waiter grabbing a smoke in a doorway hears me and says, "Welcome to New Orleans."More

I didn't have high expectations given the "tourist-y" look of the place. However my party and I were starving and figured the food would be at least adequate. We stepped inside and found ourselves seated at a pleasant table with a nice view of the...passing crowd. Service was very good, menu interesting and best of all, the pistollet's excellent. I would definitely return and recommend to others.More

We came here for dinner with friends on a rainy night and we loved the atmosphere of the restaurant. The staff were so nice and they even had my favorite grasshopper drink. The fried green tomatoes with shrimp remoulade appetizer was fantastic, as was the...Crescent City Sampler and the Seafood Pot Pie. We all had a great time here.More

I *did* said I would return again in my last review. This place NEVER disappoints. I got the chicken and waffle, she got the crab cakes. As our server warned me, the Tabasco syrup is spicy but it's perfectly balanced by the sweetness. I poured...the whole thing on my chicken and waffle. Sure, my mouth was tingling but wow that's good! And she said it was the best crab cakes she's ever had. Absolutely outstanding!More

The wait staff were great but the food was simply adequate. The Chicken and Andouille Gumbo had two small pieces of chicken and ZERO sausage in the bowl, also the soup was all over the bowl, that said the flavor was good. The Shrimp Po’Boy’s...predominate flavor was lettuce left uncovered in the refrigerator, other than that, Bland. The fried green tomatoes were very good. To their credit they made this right on the bill but We will never go back. Too many good places to eat in Nola.More

The staff at Pierre Maspero's were amazing. I am sorry that I did not make note of your names but the older gentleman and the female who were greeting and seating people were so friendly and I really enjoyed talking to them. Since we were...a party of seven, three of us arrived early to put our names on the list and enjoyed a couple of drinks at the bar while we waited. The barman too was very friendly and easy to chat too. Our food was delicious and we would highly recommend great restaurant.More

We return to this restaurant when we visit NOLA because we love the staff and the food. Our waitresses are always friendly and take good care of us. We've only had breakfast here and typically walk in without a wait. Chicken and waffles, biscuits and...gravy, andouille with eggs and hash browns, and bottomless mimosas. Everything was good and we will continue to come back.More

Dropped by here because the restaurant we were going to eat at was closed due to the Covid restrictions. We ordered the Fried Alligator for our appetizer. My wife ordered the Crab Cake Maspero. I ordered the Combo Seafood Platter. Serving sizes are generous. The...appetizer is big enough for two easily. The Seafood Platter had a huge helping. The Crab Cake Maspero was filling. The Crab Cakes are spicy, just as expected in New Orleans. The catfish and shrimp had a good flavor as well. The catfish falls apart in you mouth. The hushpuppies were typical, nothing special. The French fries were also typical. Overall the meal was very enjoyable. I would highly recommend this location. If you are in the area, give them a try!More

We stumbled upon this hidden gem on our last morning in NOLA. The breakfast food here is amazing and the service from Miss Mary was superb! I highly recommend the Andouille & Eggs w/bottomless mimosas- delicious!

I'm not someone to leave bad reviews, and I especially hate to leave one when I know businesses are hurting due to Covid. I have been the NO several times and always love the food. This place got great reviews and the menu sounded tasty....My 26 year old daughter and I went. The waitress took our appetizer order, and it appeared within 3 minutes (before we even placed our dinner order).We then placed our dinner order, and that food arrived in less than 10 minutes. That sounds like great service, but we weren't going out for fast food. The waitress did her job, but not with a smile or one extra word of chit chat. My daughter had fried shrimp. Gordon's frozen shrimp is better. On first bite, they tasted just ok, then they left a taste in your mouth that made you want to eat something else to make it go away. I had shrimp & grits. This is a dish I usually love. Here it was ok. Not bad, but nothing special. The 2 dinners ( one awful and one forgettable), one shared appetizer, and 2 glasses of water were $59. I would have had no problem paying that for tasty food with friendly service.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

around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

We didn't but we had to wait outside for a table for about 15 min which was okay because we had looked at the menu so we already had an idea of what we wanted and it was warm to stay outside. I would recommend reservations... More
