This it the real deal, authentic New Orleans uptown neighborhood restaurant. We went for lunch which they serve on a limited basis during the week. Everything was fabulous, from the French bread you can't get anywhere but New Orleans (served with sticks of real butter), to the appetizer, salad and entrée. We had the oysters with brie appetizer (delicious), the crab salad and the veal Marsala, probably the best example of this dish I have every had. Local beers (Abita) and a good selection of wines by the glass are available. Don't understand how it can be #78 in New Orleans, it is currently #1 in my book.

I love this restaurant. It is not for everyone. For any visitor to New Orleans, you must know that this is the closest thing to a private club in the city. People dress up, they go in groups, they drink too much, they table hop and they cut up. For someone wishing to spend a quiet evening at an elegant restaurant, do not think about Clancy's. You have to be ready for the noise factor and for the fun. People are so happy to be there that tourists end up meeting locals. But, there is a snob factor. Jeans and t-shirts? Sure. Corner table in Siberia. You will get in but you won't fit in. Just put on a blazer and some nice trousers.
Once you get in you will be treated to some of the best creole food in the city. Fresh french bread comes out warm and goes down with soft butter and wine. When it gets cold, they bring you a new loaf. Don't forget the peppermint ice cream or lemon ice box pie. Oysters are great, crabmeat is lumped and fresh. I wonder if they have some agreement with the Louisiana crabs as this is THE Place for crab. Also, food can be seasonal so be sure to get creole tomatoes in summer.

Clancy's puts the uptown in uptown. This great place has been serving delectable New Orleans treats for decades. It has a great bar and loud stuffy atmosphere that makes it hum with happiness. The favorites like tout almandine are always their but also go after the oyster appetizer or the soft shell crab if in season.

This is a great restaurant. Went with six people. Food was outstanding. A little challenging getting return cab ride back to downtown.
