My wife and I stopped in this restaurant for an afternoon drink while visiting in the French quarter. The drinks were pricey but refreshing and loaded with plenty of alcohol. The bartender was a pretty good guy, friendly and helpful, and wasn't trying to sell us any tours, special deals, or anything else. It's pricey but what venue in the... More

Lovely looking, classic French Quarter outlook from beautiful open windows. Servers seemed harassed and were not that friendly or efficient. My starter of the Crumbed Cheese Sticks were cold and rubbery. My meal the Bayou Pasta was nearly inedible....so didn't match the menu description either....raw cayenne was heavily sprinkled over the top and it tasted vile. I wasn't even asked... More

Our first dinner in New Orleans. Restaurant looked nice and a table was available. Staff were pleasant and friendly, but the service was quite slow. We were unimpressed with the food: Gumbo was ok, although not as good as we had elsewhere in Louisiana. The Jambalaya looked and tasted like it had been sitting around for a long time, waiting...

One cannot find decent restaurants at a decent price in the French quarter, but this one is convenient. Good seating, good service, modest prices for decent food. A kids chair was no problem.

Another good restaurant in the Quarter that has great fish and shellfish dishes (we drink at Pat O's and eat at Royal and Antoine's whenever we are there for a couple of days). A little pricey but very good.

Stopped in to try. Good news is that employees friendly. Bad news is food and drinks are piss-poor, and service woefully slow. Move on ...

I am surprised I have never written a review for this restaurant. They staff go out of their way to take your group and give them a wonderful dining experience. I called once during Mardi Gras and was able to book a private room for 16 people for the following night! that is hard to do during this busy season... More

I stopped in to relax and ray. To take a break from the walk in the french quarter. I found this place inviting with true NOLA architecture and friendly staff. I had a cocktail, some gumbo, and the crab cakes appetizer. The gumbo was quite good in a rich dark base. The crab cakes has a delicious sweet and spicy... More

We have been to New Orleans many times, but had never eaten at Pere Antoine's before. We wound up eating there twice. The service was great, and the food was great too. This is a good restaurant if you are looking for a reasonably priced place instead of all the fancy high priced places. There is a lot to choose... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
