Description: Tommy’s knows how to serve a meal with the quintessential New Orleans reverence for fine ingredients and artful combinations. At Tommy’s Cuisine, Creole Italian comes to life with entrees like roasted Duck Tchoupitoulas and Crabmeat Sardou and appetizers ranging from baked oysters to escargots simmered in vermouth.

Tommy's Cuisine is really the sister restaurant to Irene's in the French Quarter. Tommy and Irene were married and after their divorce, he opened Tommy's. Tommy's is bigger, less crowded, with more open rooms (probably because it's not in the French Quarter but in the Warehouse District) and it's much much easier to get a table. Best part is that the food is just as good!

We enjoyed a wonderful meal at Tommy's on a Thursday evening. We had a 9:00 reservation and the restaurant was busy but not crowded. The menu is definitely what you would expect in New Orleans but has an Italian flair. My husband's appetizer was fried oysters, recommended by the waiter and they were outstanding. According to my husband, they were not your typical fried oysters as there was bacon or pancetta involved but he proclaimed them to be the best he's ever had. I had an avocado and lump crab salad - also wonderful. Our entrees were Pompano in a bag and Filet of Fish Maison which was Red Drum sauteed and served with a Meuniere Sauce, topped with Jumbo Lump Crabmeat, Brabant Potatoes and fresh steamed broccoli. It was excellent and my husband's Pompano was equally delicious. It was a special of the day, of which there were many.

I would highly recommend Tommy's. Not only is the service terrific but the food is delicious. Plus the Warehouse District is a fun area to explore with lots of neighborhood bars and restaurants to be enjoyed.

Visit the restaurant in April, 2012 when attend a meeting in New Orleans. With prior reservation, have no problem to get a table even at Saturday night. Enjoy Jumbo Lump Crabmeat, Oysters Bienville, Soft-shell Crab, and Fish Capri. Just awesome! Price is right. Within our walking distance (we stayed in Hilton Garden Inn at Convention Center).

The food was okay, not spicy or inventive. Felt a bit stuffy. It seemed over priced as well. The cocktails were not the best we have had but they acted like it was the best bar in town. It was quiet and romantic and we would try again, It was like they wanted to be upscale by the price but the food and service did not feel upscale.

We took a group of 17. They were able to handle us without a problem and kept us within two large tables. Our waiter Rene was a riot. He handled us with finesse and well placed humor. The service was awesome. Water glasses were only allowed to get about a quarter of the way emptied before bring refilled. The food was unique and pleasurable. Thanks for a great time!

My husband and I our local to New Orleans and constantly experience Cajun, creole fair. We happened upon Tommy's for Italian and we were pleasantly surprised. We were immediately welcomed by Sergio and the hostess who were warm and friendly. Lucky to be sat with Michael who was knowledgable, professional and was an excellent server. The meals were beyond delicious veal, crab, and filet. You will be full but order the pecan praline bread pudding it was amazing!! The owner tommy even took time to come and chat with us about our experience. It's top notch dining in the warehouse district of NOLA- enjoy!
