Description: Step back in time as you step through the door into our beautiful, tiled dining room where New Orleans’ original sizzling steaks have been served since the doors opened in 1934. We offer prime, dry-aged beef that is cut in-house and cooked to your desire as well as seafood options such as broiled lobster tail and salmon to name a couple. Our commitment to quality does not end in the kitchen. Our extensive wine list consists of over 130 bottles from around the world. Our bar offers a wide array of quality liquors and liqueurs including single malt and blended scotches, bourbons, whiskeys, vodkas, and gins to name a few. We even have a specialty cocktail list which includes the Crescent City Martini, a Vojkovich family favorite that is made with a delectable, Croatian liqueur. Crescent City Steaks has been owned and operated by the Vojkovich family since Mr. John first opened the doors over 75 years ago, and his spirit lives on through the essence of family that transcends everything we do. It is our tradition to treat and care for our customers as family, and what better way to do so than to provide an exceptional meal in an atmosphere that rivals the comforts of home. So, come in; have a seat; and, become part of the family at Crescent City Steaks, the home of New Orleans’ original sizzling steak.

“Best steak in New Orleans”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

One of our very favorite places to eat in New Orleans and we are picky being from here. The steaks are wonderful with sizzling butter on top and the German fries are really good. We love sitting in one of the private booths and the decor hasn't changed since 1934 when it opened. The restaurant is clean and the staff very friendly and efficient. It's a great place!

“Great dinner experience”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

This restaurant came highly recommended and did not disappoint. We were seated in one of the private booths which was a charming choice. The décor and setting was very interesting and conveyed an old world charm. We settled on the Chateau Briand (sp? - it was terrific no matter how it is spelled!!) Cooked to perfection with amazing sides. Its a great place so check it out.

“Best steak in NOLA!”
Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

This is apparently my Mom's new favorite place because we've gone back several times in the last month! Best tasting filet I've had in a long time. Courteous staff, consistent food prep/presentation, nice starter salads. I especially like the buttery garlic sauce you can get as an extra. We'll be back again soon!!

True to form Mardi Gras meeting place for locals. Great steaks and sides, reasonably priced wines, and a "you're sure to meet and see someone you know" atmosphere on a night when most places are closed. Well worth the wait--- and sure to become ever more popular as New Orleans Mid-City continues to revitalize.

“Best Steak in New Orleans”
Reviewed February 12, 2014 via mobile

Crescent City offers one of the best steaks in New Orleans. They offer a wonderfully dry aged steak cooked to your specific request. This is not the romance of the Chophouse or the elegant steakhouse setting of dicki Brennans but exudes the atmosphere of the bygone New Orleans neighborhood restaurant. From over a dozen visits I have never had a bad time. I have especially enjoyed their lunch service.
