Two friends and I were in town for my birthday, we decided to try BH since we'd never eaten there before. No particular dress code, we waited about 25 minutes for our table. Were able to get drinks at the bar while we waited, be aware that you must cash out bar drinks separately from your table ticket. Our server,... More

I was invited to join colleagues of mine for dinner and enjoyed the easy atmosphere of the restaurant. I entered 10 minutes later than my party however was engaged by the server as if I had been there initially. The restaurant is brightly lit and spacious. I enjoyed a glass of house Merlot and the Étouffée. The food and wine... More

Obviously the bar is incredible. However the food isn't as such. It was alright. The charbroiled oysters were very good. However the shrimp my wife received were alright but hard to peel. However they were more like prawns than shrimp. Good and fast service. I would come here again mainly for the bourbon selection.

Just the best service ever and not too stuffy. Nice restaurant but you can walk in casual (I wore sneakers). The food was good, not great but the overall experience was really good and loved the charbroiled oysters.

I have eaten here several times and I absolutely love it! The 'Redfish on the Half Shell' is absolutely delicious! So are the oysters! Definitely recommend it to anyone in New Orleans.

In a town full of amazing food I managed to find a completely underwhelming meal. The good: the ambiance is good. Nice view of the street and a comfortable environment. The staff are all very nice and helpful. The food: just ok. In any other town it might even be decent. However nothing about it impressed me. Not a lot... More

Had lunch here with family after returning from our cruise. The crab cake appetizer was superb and probably the best I've ever had. The roasted tomato soup was also special. It's pricey but a good place to splurge.

Was lucky enough to sample the amazing food at Dickie Brennan's Bourbon House last week. Service was on point, food and drinks were wonderful. They had great drink and food specials. The atmosphere was old school New Orleans. I tried the shrimp corn machoux - devine! Also tried the sazerac and a jilted lover - be adventurous. Will be back... More

Always have assumed good things about the Bourbon House, especially since it is a Brennan property but we were not happy. Just had a small meal in the bar- baked oysters, salad, bisque. Oysters were hardly warm and we sent them back- waiter was nice about it but they still tasted like they had been prepared in the morning and... More

Situated in the first block of Bourbon Street (coming from Canal Street), this beautiful restaurant offers very good meals with fish, seafood and meat. The service is excellent, the personnel is helpful in chosing your wine and other drinks. Enjoy the atmosphere!

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.
