I would just flat out recommend against this restaurant. We got coaxed in by the friendly service but the food was just terrible. We ordered two dishes recommended by our waiter - both Louisiana specials. Both were flavourless, mushy, and expensive. We also ordered oyster shooters as an appie and they were served in plastic Dixie cups and tasted bad.... More

Well located restaurant. Friendly staff and great red beans and sausage. Didn't get too try the gumbo but will do next trip to NOLA.

Service really efficient and friendly even though the lovely waitress had started that day she was knowledgeable helpful friendly and good fun. Food was delivered promptly and it was hot. Delicious and imaginative. Highly recommend.

The barbecue shrimps are spicy and so good. Also the gumbo deux is a must. So delicate! You don't have to wait long for the food.

We just wanted to grab a quick bite before going to the airport and while other French Quarter places were packed, many with lines, this restaurant, though busy, had room for us. The staff were friendly and efficient, the coffee was good and the French Toast covered in powdered sugar was delicious! We were in and out and satisfied -... More

We decided to eat at Pere Antoine's for an early dinner. We were quickly seated, even though the dining room was quickly filling. At this point, we had pretty high expectations. We changed our minds after not too much time. We ordered. I was craving crawfish. Not wanting a heavy étoufée, I asked if a shrimp and andouille dish (Mardi... More

We were looking for breakfast and had heard about this place. We were quickly seated and offered drinks. The coffee was good, hot and plentiful. My pain perdu was nicely done and covered in copious amounts of confectioner's sugar. My wife's Ragin' Cajun omelette was okay, but really didn't strike either of us as terribly Cajun. Service was excellent, the... More

Stopped here on a very rainy night. There was no crowd and we were seated immediately. Only took about 10 minutes for our food. The steamed vegetable fettucini alfredo was very good. Loved the classic look of the restaurant. It had the old Nawlins look. Will be back

We had a group of five people and wanted to meet for drinks. The bar wasn't really conducive to a group of five so we asked for a table. Some of us had appetizers eventually. The location was good, the appetizers were average, and the service was spotty. I suspect they didn't really want us taking up a table if... More

The restaurant wasn't too crowded when we came in for breakfast. The food was pretty good but our waitress Anna was horrible. We waited for over 29 minutes while others came in and were served. When she finally arrived there wasn't a word of apology. When she refilled my coffee half full. Now we have waited another 20 minutes for... 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.
