This French Bistro has unusual offerings from run of the mill regular luncheon type food------for a great lunch atmosphere. Ask to sit by the windows and you can watch the French Quarter foot traffic as you enjoy your meal. Try the shrimp remoulade for a great appetizer! Staff is attentive and service is great.

My wife and I were visiting New Orleans recently and found this Jewel! The service provided by Joseph and his team was first class. The restaurant had a very comfortable feel that made want to order several rounds of drinks to watch crowds go by. We split our first course of seafood gumbo and crawfish etouffe - fantastic to say the least. Second course I had the can marinated pork loin w/braised rainbow chard and a sweet potato base that was unreal. The pork was cooked perfectly. Great place to hang out and enjoy good creole based dining experience.

What a wonderful Birthday celebration for my wife. The staff was very attentive and James our waiter really read us perfectly to add to the experience.The food was great. My wife likes more sauces and creams and I like the plain, more natural taste. Criollo was able to accomodate both of us with great meals. We both loved our fish entrees. The signature appetizer of a tower of crab, avocado and salsa is worth ordering. The bar noise is loud, but we sat the side room with a view of the Hotel lobby and it was much quieter. Just a wonderful night and Criollo enhanced our fun.

Criollo Restaurant has a really nice feel to it and the menu selection is large. I found the food to be excellent and the staff attentive. Drinks are a little pricey.

Had lunch here recently. The restaurant looks great with newly added large windows that look out onto the street. (Ask for a window seat.) The food was very good. Not too heavy unlike some of the better restaurants in the French Quarter. The service was great with the chef stopping by the table to answer questions. One problem: no fresh squeezed juice. In a town known for its imaginative cocktails, you've got to have fresh juice! Other than that, great experience.
