  • Cafe du Monde

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    The lines here at Café du Monde can be excruciating. Come early and don't get in the line for the take out! If you see a table and there is no line on the streetside, take it! The biegnets are nice and the coffee can be good. That said, you can take that can of Café du Monde chickory coffee and make better. Of course you won't be offered the...

  • Court of Two Sisters

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    We were fortunate to sit outside in the courtyard for the Saturday Jazz Brunch. The Jazz band played throughout the restaurant and it was delightful when they played in the courtyard. The service by Troy was very attentive and we never lacked for coffee or other drinks. We sat at a table for six, and all had the buffet lunch. The variety of food...

  • Gumbo Shop

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    I read that the Gumbo Shop is the place to come for gumbo in NOLA. I think a lot of other people read the same thing because of the lines on the weekend. I came here during the week and walked in. The gumbo was good, but I had just had a cup of gumbo at Couchon and .... well, while good, it isn't the best. The gumbo and the other dishes are solid...

  • Acme Oyster House

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    One of the handful of places that Man vs. Food has visited - while I'm not interested in oysters, the rest of the menu looked pretty promising. The start was a little rocky though. You need to wait outside to be seated, which wouldn't be bad except for the horrible stench in the alley :( Luckily, we were seated fairly quickly. The table areas are a...

  • Central Grocery

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Another sandwich that is typical of New Orleans is the muffuletta, a delicious combination of cold cuts, cheese and - the key ingredient - Sicilian olive salad served on a soft, round bread. The sandwich was created at the Central Grocery, which has been around since 1906, by its original owner Salvatore Lupo. Although most restaurants around town...

  • Mother's

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    This is an unusual deli kinda joint. You enter, get in line, and grab a menu and wind your way to the cook area to order. You then pay and find a table. A waitperson will find you and bring your meal to you. The breakfast is supposed to be outstanding. We however enjoyed our lunch. We tasted the gumbo, a house special po'boy with debris (the yummy...

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Famous New Orleans hangout across from Lafayette Cemetery--we walked by around 4 in the afternoon while visiting the cemetery across the street, listening to the band rehearsing for the coming night's entertainment....great local experience...the menu is the best of NO seafood and always the freshest...old style service and first class food make...

  • Brennan's

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Open for breakfast and dinner, we had brunch here and HIGHLY recommend it. If you haven't booked, no problem if you're early - you can walk in. We had brunch at noon on a Saturday in April and were seated within 5 minutes. $36 per person for Brunch. Bananas Foster was started here - and it topped off a superb meal. You cannot come here and leave...

  • Deanie's Seafood

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    You cannot make reservations so be prepared to wait. We visited on a Saturday evening in April about 7:45pm and had an hour wait. There is a bar and room to stand and drink and talk so the wait is quite manageable. Another VT member recommended the Barbeque Shrimp starter - thank you !! We totally concur - these large shrimp are beautifully...

  • Coop's Place

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    If you like respectful, friendly, and polite service when dining out, STAY AWAY from Coop’s Place. In my many many experiences, this was by far the worst experience I ever had. To give a clearer idea of what happened, here’s the description how my dinner at Coop’s Place unfolded: After waiting in line for about 45 minutes, a waiter asked if both...

  • Muriel's

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    The food here is good though a bit more because of the location and maybe the resident ghost? The turtle soup was a bit salty but the seafood chowder was great! The entrees we had were great and you will be hard pressed to have room for dessert. Make sure you check out the second floor lounge and maybe have a drink on the outside balcony facing...

  • Cafe Beignet

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    I just wandered into the Café Beignet by happen chance. I was just looking for a place to eat that was not too expensive. Well I got what I paid for because the food here was not good. Nor was the jazz band that played lame old jazz and blues songs. The Café Beignet I visited was very busy, largely because of the two conventions in town and its...

  • Antoine's

    3 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    My wife and I had 3 days to spend in New Orleans and wanted to eat at 3 of its more famous restaurants; Antoine's, Commander's Palace, and K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen. Of the 3, Antoine's turned out to be the biggest disappointment because the food certainly did not live up to our expectations. My wife had a green tomato appetizer which turned out...

  • Johnny's Po-Boys

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Apparently the oldest family owned PoBoys restaurant in the world, expect to stand in line for your sandwich. In April 2013, we did - about 20 minutes. But worth it. $9 is typical for a sandwich - think what you would like on it and they probably have it. Downstairs is often crowded - go upstairs where they also serve great ice cream and you...

  • Lucky Dog

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    I usually try to keep a balanced diet, even when I'm traveling. But after a night out on Bourbon Street, most resolutions tend to go out the window, and that's how we ended up grabbing a "lucky dog". You'll find the hot dog-shaped carts at different street corners in the French Quarter. They've been around since 1948, and very few visitors make it...

  • Port of Call

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Port of Call looks like a dark little dive bar, but I had heard that it serves the best hamburgers in New Orleans. After eating lunch there, I would add, "...and possibly in the whole country." Omigawd, that burger was good! Normally, I can finish only about half a burger, but at Port of Call I ordered a half-pounder and INHALED that sucker. Even...

  • Emeril's

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    The beloved daughter of my friend was graduating from Tulane Law, and her "ungodly parents" had come to New Orleans to witness the momentous occasion. As a fitting celebration for the achievement, they took us all to dinner at Emeril's. I have to admit that it was a fabulous evening. The restaurant itself didn't knock my socks off with its decor,...

  • Jacques-Imo's Cafe

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Jacques-Imo's Cafe is more than just a restaurant; it's a total experience. The name of the place is a pun on the Creole phrase "Jockamo fee na nay" (remember the song "Iko Iko"?) and the name of the owner, Jacques Leonardi. Do not come to Jacques-Imo's if you are in a hurry or want to have a quiet dinner. It's a popular, noisy, crowded place...

  • Mulate's

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    I travel from Phoenix to NOLA often. At this time of year the only nonstop flight on Southwest arrives at 10 pm. It is Friday and almost every restaurant is closed before I can even check into my hotel. So this time I used my phone to look for a place to eat and found Mulate's closed at 11 pm. I called as I never trust the web. I was told they were...

  • Arnaud's

    5 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    If there is a better breakfast, you'll have to wait for Heaven. The service, ambience, wait staff, and food are nonpareil. I've eaten breakfast here twice, and the quality was superb each time. The tourists unwittingly flock to Brennan's, but this is the place to go. Perhaps I shouldn't have told. The turtle soup is outstanding. The serving...

  • Crescent City Brewhouse

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    We arrived in New Orleans on a Monday and things were reasonably tamed at first - or at least, as tamed as Bourbon Street will ever be! - but by Thursday night you could definitely tell that weekend was just around the corner and things were coming in full swing. We had to walk for quite some time to find a place to eat where we wouldn't have to...

  • Hard Rock Cafe

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    New Orleans must be one of the most appropriate places possible to have a Hard Rock Cafe. Not that someone like Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong was into hard rock; but NO is home to some great music. The Hard Rock Cafe New Orleans has his trumpet on display. The food was great, the staff friendly, and the atmosphere was electric. I really did keep...

  • Margaritaville

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    We love Margaritaville! A fun time, good food, and stellar Margaritas! They offer a generous military discount, so if you are active service or retired, be sure to ask. We loved eating out on the balcony - so very New Orleans - and it was a beautiful day. I had the shrimp po-boy with fries (which was big enough to share). My sister had the roast...

  • Palace Cafe

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Classic upscale New Orleans dining. President Clinton has eaten here several times, hence the tip title. Classy, but not uptight - you should make a reservation, but if you walk-in you can wait at the full bar while you wait. I had the Turtle Soup (I could have had a salad instead, but why??), Shrimp Tchefuncte (shrimp with mushrooms in a meuniere...

  • Napoleon House Bar & Cafe

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Napoleon House, housed in a historic building in the French Quarter, has been owned and operated by the Impastato family since 1914. If you peek in the door, all you can see is the bar, but rest assured, beyond that is a lovely courtyard that's perfect for dining. The food is a cross between Italian deli and New Orleans cuisine, and they are...

  • Red Fish Grill

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    My husband and I dined at Red Fish Grill two years back and we both thought the dishes we got were bland. Not worth the money at all. I remember one of us got the chicken dish which was tasteless and I think we also got a seafood entree. Nothing memorable and I'm not very picky.

  • Cafe Maspero

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Cafe Mespero is relatively cheap, but you get what you pay for. I ordered the French Onion soup for lunch that arrive luke warm with the cheese pretty much a solid block. My wife ordered a hamburger, my son ordered the chicken sandwich. Both were dried out and cold - and this was at 12:30. My advice - pony up the extra money and go somewhere else....

    I was told that the chili omelet was the reason to go here, so that's what I ordered---a HUGE 3 egg omelet deliciously overflowing with spicy chili! MMMMM! The chicory is a plus as well, My mama used to make Luzianne Chicory coffee when I was growing up, and learned to love it then. This place is right at a big turn in the streetcar, which is a fun...

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Galatoire's is New Orleans, especially on a Friday afternoon when the locals come for lunch and stay through the afternoon drinking Champagne. Anything Creole can be excellent at Galatoire's from fried foods, to fish papilotte to their chops. Diners can pick and choose from a selection of sauces for their food. Bernaise on your steak...no problem....

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    The oysters were great. We enjoyed a dozen at the Bourbon House and the Royal House and this was far the best. The dozen oysters we had here were superb. The waitress swirled up the oyster sauce out of the ingredients on the table for us and with a little added Crystal, we dug in! There seems to be a lot of other good things on the menu, as well,...

    New Orleans Restaurants

    There is a deli in back of what is a local convenience market here on Royal Street down near the far edge of the Quarter. Supposedly it was a favorite of Brad Pitt's when he used to have a place near here. It is more of a locals hangout than places closer to the downtown side of the Quarter. The sandwiches I had ordered up were a great reason to...

  • Angeli

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    We got to the French Quarter late and were all hungry. I picked Angeli online based on menus and reviews. The trip down Decatur with our kids past all of the clubs was a little unnerving. I was even more uncertain when we entered Angeli’s, dimly lit, it looked like more of a bar than a restaurant. But we decided to give it a try. We had the...

  • Bourbon House

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    This is a huge restaurant right on Bourbon. Try for a window so you can watch the insanity outside. The food is good, though the oysters we got were easily outdone by the competition across the street at Felix's. I recommend getting a reservation, though with its size, you can probably score a table if you are willing to wait The Borubon Milk Punch...

  • Market Cafe

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    We visited Market Café one morning when we were looking for a place to eat something after a long walk around French Quarter early in the morning. Places like this are ideal for breakfast because of the outdoor sitting. The patio is partly covered but watch out for the birds :) For $20 we had cappuccino coffee and we ordered a huge muffuletta (pic...

    New Orleans Restaurants

    I stepped into the Praline Connection while exploring the Faubourg district of New Orleans. I checked out the menu outside and thought the prices were just right for my pocket book. The restaurant is considered to be a decent place for local comfort food and soul food. Reviews I have read about since visiting have been rather mixed but I found the...

  • Pere Antoine

    3 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Restaurant is on the "quiet" end of Royal Street, and during the warm days they open up the doors to let in a breeze, which gives it an al fresco bistro feel - I love it! The restaurant is charming and casual, and the wait staff is friendly, and the food is nicely priced (more than McDonald's, less than Antoine's). There is a nice bar here too -...

    The first thing we needed to do when we got to New Orleans eat - we were starving!! We checked in at the hotel and then just went walking. We knew we would find something in a city like this. On Bourbon Street, the first place we saw was people eating outside on a balcony - it looked perfect and it was! Patouts had a live band playing inside by...

    In 1994, one of the best movies released in the US was Forrest Gump. The story is about a young man growing up in the rural South and many of the adventures he goes through. During one of these adventures, he becomes a shrimp boat owner with his buddy Captain Dan and his former Army buddy, Bubba. From the movie, restauranteurs took note of the...

  • K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    I first visited K-Paul's in the 80's before Food TV made Chef Paul Prudomme a superstar. The wait was long even though we got in line an hour before it opened, and we had to dash for a two-top table because we didn't want to share a 4-top with strangers. The place was a tiny dump and the lousy house wine was served in a mason jar, but the moment...

    The guy holding the 2 for 1 sign at the Famous Door bar said this place was good, so how could I go wrong? The bartender from California (Melissa?) was friendly and happy to help me find a few fun places to go that evening. I had a few Abita drafts plus an outstanding blackened catfish po'boy (around $11). This place has a good deal of customers...

    While in New Orleans we celebrated our anniversary at Emerils Delmonico. We called a few hours before and just tried our luck.

To our surprise as we were eatting our dinner Kevin Costner comes in with a...

  • Corner Oyster House

    2 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Though I actually walked in the door and sipped on a glass of beer, I couldn't bring myself to eat here on my first visit to New Orleans. It was just too bright, clean, and modern to resemble a good restaurant. The food was reasonably priced, and the menu had basic Cajun fare, but it looked far too touristy once we got inside. Maybe it's an OK...

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Landry's Seafood House has a nice, unpretentious feel to it. We walked right in and got a nice table which gave us a great view around the restaurant, but a view to the outside as well. This restaurant had a attractive looking bar as well as plenty of table space too. The decor was especially nice but not stuffy or too formal. Service was friendly...
