“Great Sweet Potato Pancakes”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

Very good large portions - not overly sweet served w/ some delicious whipped cream and a variety of syrups. The yogurt/granola parfait was huge and full of fresh fruit. $45 for two for breakfast. Being right there in the hotel lobby made it worth it

“Favorite meal in Nawlins”
Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

As absurd is this might sound, our brunch today at The Fountain Lodge was my favorite meal of our recent trip to New Orleans. The sweet potato pancakes were the best pancakes that I ever had. My wife had a delicious specialty Eggs Benedict dish with crab meat. The Bloody Mary drinks were quite tasty.

The service was typical New Orleans, not too fast, but very friendly. It was a great meal in an excellent hotel.

“After 75 years, back by popular demand”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

First established in 1938, the Fountain then became little more than an extension of the Sazerac Bar. But now it is back in all its atmospheric and gustatory glory. We went there with visiting friends because the Domenica was packed -- 1 1/2 hour wait time -- and had a wonderful evening. The service was great -- relaxed, helpful, friendly and professional. The gin fizzes were fizzy, the music was lovely (though the powerful tenor tended to overpower conversation at times), and the food terrific and quite reasonable. We ended up sharing a bunch of small plates between the four of us, and every one was fabulous -- pork belly, rabbit tenderloin (maybe my favorite), duck flat bread, grilled oysters, arugula salad, and a wonderful crab/mushroom tagliatelle. The waitress delivered the dishes two at a time so we could savour each one. Altogether, it made for an unexpectedly memorable, fun night.

“Desert and Wine”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

I only had desert and wine but it was very good. The entrees I saw looked very good as well. I would eat dinner here if I go back to New Orleans and stay at The Roosevelt.
