We held a business dinner for 30 staff. Individual menus were prepared with our company logo for a four course dinner. Wait staff was excellent and attentive. Room was located upstairs and apart from the main dining area and quite spacious for the size of the group. Dinner took about 2 hours from start to end with all of the... More

I enjoy bourbon. And I enjoy collecting bourbon. And I must say that this restaurant had bourbons that I wanted to try that I do not own, so that impressed me. Obviously you're going to pay a premium, but that is to be expected. I slipped in the Bourbon House for an afternoon cocktail and some oysters after walking around... More

We popped in for lunch during our stay and it was a great decision. We sat down an ordered drinks and appetizers before ordering our lunch. The appetizer was a twist on the traditional beignets. Excellent. The service was great and it was a very nice experience. It can get a bit crowded, so expect delays during peak times.

Specializing in seafood and bourbon, this was one of my favorite places to eat in NOLA. They serve some amazing bourbon I've never heard of and the servers are very knowledgeable on the alcohol selection. A fantastic variety of choices of salads, soups, seafood and meat entrees, and alcohol. Some of the best clam chowder I've had. Attached to the... More

Beautiful restaurant, outstanding food. I had the gumbo and spinach salad - absolutely delicious. Treated myself to their bread pudding, the best!

Had dinner the other night and the selection was very extensive, numerous seafood specialties. Excellent salads, and the Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato combo was NOT a sandwich! Try it!

We arrived at 12:00 and was immediately bombarded by three waiters. One for water, one for drinks and one for food. I didn't mind this; had they not kept telling me,oh,wait to do that, the other waiter will handle your food, water or drink... Secondly, We walked in and there were only about four other tables full, which they already... More

We treated ourselves to this wonderful cuisine for our last night in New Orleans. The food was great and so was the service! Be prepared, it isn't cheap, but you are worth it!

We were told that this was the place for oysters, and sure it was! Our order was some fresh oysters, charbroiled oysters (these were the best!!!) and bbq shrimp. Everything was delicious, but the charbroiled oysters beat them all! I really wanted to get the bourbon sampler, but i forgot to ask for it (haha). The staff was one of... More

The Bourbon House has much more than Bourbon, as I discovered. Of course, you will want to sample a flight of 3 bourbon selections and decided which suits you best, but wait for it, there is something completely unique at the Bourbon House - Charbroiled Oysters! They are meaty, juicy, slippery and totally delectable. I've never had such an experience... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
