The wait staff is very attentive...so much so we had a waiter and a waitress...and both were checking in on us. Amazing!!! The was also... More

I had charbroiled oysters and the coconut cheesecake...it was amazing. The service was great! The atmosphere was warm and fancy. I'm so glad my group went there. I thought it would be good, but it was great. The food wasn't overlooked either. Usually charbroiled oysters are overcooked, but these were perfect. The rest of my party was happy with their...

I stopped in to try some charbroiled oysters and they were great. I sat at the bar and had an ice cold Abita beer and food in front of me within minutes. Someone came by and dropped off a small loaf of bread to eat with the oysters. This was a great experience for the cost!

At the Bourbon House you can have it both ways. My husband had the delightful corn/crab soup and Pecan Catfish. I had the house salad with a Bourbon vinaigrette..yummy.. and the best Veal dish I have ever had. Our service was excellent. Antonio and Alex made sure we had everything we needed. The restaurant was pleasantly subdued but not formal.... More

I have been here a few times over the past two years. Twice for oysters and bourbon and once for breakfast. The oysters are awesome and huge. The horseradish and the cocktail sauce are also very tasty. The whisky selection is somewhat daunting but the bartenders are pros at guiding you in the right direction. Breakfast was really good and... More

The Cesar salad is yummy! The steak was cook to perfection and I loved the bourbon milk punch! It's a must try if you are visiting in the summer months.

My sister and husband had a concert to attend, so i had a night to myself. I came here and sat at the bar while a very friendly Chef was shucking oysters. I had an Abita Amber Beer. Nice, fresh and cold. The bartender also let me buy the glass it came in for a souvenir for home. I had... More

My friend and I had a great light dinner here after a French Quarter cocktail tour. Our tour guide recommended it to us as a place to get grilled oysters, so we took him up on his recommendation, since his tour was so great. Chris, Noah, and Scott gave us stellar service, and the food and cocktails were better than... More

I found the food to be very good and I was pleasantly surprised, since I usually go to Acme's next door, I have missed out on this very good restaurant! I recommend!

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.
