Only stopped in for a cocktail in this fun place near our hotel. Great Bloody Mary made from a mix the chef developed. They have a menu of 180 different whiskies and bourbons. The bar tender was very personable and made for a fun time. The dining room was beautiful and looked like it would be a great place to... More

We waited 30 minutes for a table. Once seated our drink order was taken, but we did not see our waiter for nearly 30 minutes. After we had been seated for one hour and fifteen minutes we complained because we still did not have our meal. It took an hour just to get bread. Finally one hour and thirty minutes... More

This is a enjoyable restaurant especially if you enjoy Bourbon and Oysters. The service if first rate and the food very tasty. I recommend the bread pudding.

We stayed at the Hyatt right across bourbon street. We thought this place looked pretty high-end so we saved it for our last night in town. Although most of the food was very good, the fried shrimp was nothing special. Most disappointing was the service. When I spend $100 for dinner for 2, I have high expectations. I should definitely...

Started my evening of with colleagues at Bourbon House. Raw oysters were fab. Nice and large. Service in the bar was slow a bit and drinks were ok. But in general, a great place to kick off your night in the French quarter. Did not have dinner here so cannot review for that. From all accounts, it looked like a... More

Ive wanted to go here since I seen Kim Kardashian raving about their crab claws because I am a crab claw lover. We went for Saturday brunch- the crab claws came out cold and barely seasoned. I ordered the crab cake as well that was pretty good and the shrimp poboy that was okay. The service was terrible and he... More

With a recommendation from one of the clerks at the hotel we are staying at, we decided to go to Bourbon House. It ended up being a great recommendation. First of all, it is a really nice place but not particularly dressy. It was quite happening too. We made a reservation for 9pm and it still was busy. I can... More

The food was yummy! Remember, it's New Orleans and spiced as such for any northern folk who might be new to the culture this can be a surprise. The menu was diverse and portions were very nicely done. Everyone left full! Staff was terrific, probably the best part of the experience here!

Thank Ingrid H

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.
