Very forgettable. There were three of us and we each got a different entree and shared with each other. One got a sandwich, one jumbalaya, and I don't even remember what the other entree was. None of it was disgusting, but none of it was...good either. Service was the same, not terrible, but not good either. Nothing here to recommend.More

The service was fast and friendly and the food was good! We stumbled upon this place and were just looking for a cool place to sit and get out of the heat. But I’m glad we found it. The gumbo was good and flavorful. Would...recommend.More

Amazing is all I can say. When you come to Mew Orleans. Make sure you stop in and say Hello to Joe the chef.❤️ Make sure you tip the lovely waitress.

Food is average at best. Menu is limited. Tables are dirty. Service is slow. Did notice how most people did not finish their food. Had fried shrimp sandwich and frozen fries and it was $19. Very disappointed and kind of wanted to leave after looking...at menu. Wish we had. Maybe just not my style of food.More

Stopped here for breakfast before shopping at the French Market. This is another classic NOLA restaurant with a few twist on the classic recepies. I had a Bloody Mary and although it was good, it was a tad less spicy than I prefer. Still a...good offering from this place though. For an entree, I decided to ha e the Bayou Benedict. This is one of those twist I mentioned. In particular, we have a homemade biscuit which is split in two, atop that is a tender & well seasoned crab cake, atop that is a fried egg, overeasy, and atop that is their crawfish remulade sauce. All these ingredients made for a fantastic taste medley that I thoroughly enjoyed. I also chose a side of hash browns, shredded & lightly buttered. Very good food comes to mind when I think of Maspero. I'd definitely dine here again and I highly recommend all to do so as well. Our service was attentive but not overbearing, and our waitress was very good to us. This is another establishment that does not force gratuities on their patrons, thankfully.More

I stopped in while on a morning walk and had the Bayou Benedict with coffee. It was outstanding. Crawfish cream sauce over a crawfish cake & over-easy eggs on a buttermilk biscuit. Saved in my favorites!

Good food, but beware what you order. While my food was good, it was not worth over 20$ nor was it really filling. However, my wife and friend ordered a poboy and burger and got much better portions for less.

It’s a good atmosphere and a nice place. I have to say, I wasn’t completely sold on my steak, but to be fair, my friends have been happy with their food.

We tried the NOLA special sampler with all the local Cajun dishes and each one was amazing! The service was slow, but they also didn't make us feel like we had to rush out when we were done. They let our dog come and sit...near the sidewalk. Niec place for lunch, not fancy but it was delicious!More

I just want to start off by saying that I left a generous 20% tip because I believe the waiter/waitress don’t make enough. With that being said the staff seems to all be really good friends and rather have a good time on the clock...then waiting on the customers. Waited 10min outside for the hostess to even seat us (not crowded), 5min for the waitress to get our drink order (water), and another 10-15min for those waters to come out. As she was taking my order she seemed to have an attitude as if I was inconveniencing her by being seated in her section. We ordered our food and alcoholic drinks together. 15-30min go by and our food comes out. I turn and look at the bar and see our 2 margaritas (on the rocks) that no longer have the ice cubes in there (melted). As I ask her about our drinks she informs me the bartender is working on them. I turn and see her leaning over to the bartender, me and the bartender lock eyes, and she grabs the drinks and adds ice them (after pouring some of the drink out) and brings them to us. Never came to our table to ask how the food was, if we needed a refill on our waters or another drink. Food was 8/10. Service is everything to me. I personally will never be back to this establishment. There are plenty of restaurants on the block that have decent food (this is NEW ORLEANS) and friendly service.More

My son wanted to try mufuletta and I wanted gumbo. Both were available, with a good selection of beers. Convenient to the Natchez dock. Server Patrick was pleasant and efficient.

Cafe Maspero has excellent service. I was greeted at the door by an amazing host, and brought in to waiter that was absolutely astonishing. The food here was a solid 9/10, and even the desserts are an excellent choice. Highly recommended.

The restaurant does not take reservations. I do not remember if it is open. Probably not. But many other restaurants are open. Try Palace Cafe.
