This was a small casual place with red and white table cloth's the food and service was great, if you want to try true local cuisine this is the place. Need reservations closes early by 10 pm.

Bon Ton is a really nice place for dinner. They have great food on offer, and a killer house drink called the Rum Ramsey. Try it, you'll like it.

The food is fantastic, really really fantastic.... But the service was terrible. It was almost a joke how bad it was. The waiter comes out and introduces himself and the bus boy to you like you are going to be taken care of then it all goes down hill from there. If you have all the time In the world to wait and service isn't important to you, the food might be worth your wait. The chef is definitely putting out amazing food. The wait staff needs to be retrained or managed better.

Decor nice, but hate the red checked table cloths (YUK), plus uniforms made me feel like I was at a Jersey diner. Remoulade dressing was excellent, nice French loaf, gumbo done right, but felt not enough selection - price wise for lunch crowd. I did enjoying going there despite not getting a bank loan before lunch

It had been a few years since we had been in New Orleans and eaten at the Bon Ton Cafe. YOu never know how things may change over the years but this restaurant was as good as we remembered. My wife having grown up on the MS coast has high expectations for seafood and Creole cooking. We both had shrimp etouffee which was superb. Too many restaurants believe creole and cajun cooking is about spice. This was just perfectly seasoned, allowing you to savor the taste. Topped off with bread pudding with whiskey sauce, it was a perfect meal.
WE WILL BE BACK!
