  • Cafe du Monde

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Everybody wants to try a beignet here and rightly so. Café Du Monde is large and open 24 hrs so there really is no excuse. But be warned - three beignets are enough for two - we bought three more to take home and eat later. Still good, but not the same. In April 2013, two café au laits and six beignets cost under $12. Great place to people watch...

  • 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...

  • Acme Oyster House

    4.5 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...

  • 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...

    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...

  • Court of Two Sisters, The

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Feeling hungry and just want a quick bite to eat of authentic New Orleans food? The Court Tavern Po-Boy on Bourbon Street belonging to the Court of Two Sisters is a good place to stop. The prices are reasonable and you can satisfy your cravings of jambalaya, gumbo, and po-boys. Jambalaya was very good. Authentically spicy! (Hint: Very spicy)

  • 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...

  • Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    I thought the resturant was nicely done. I have been to three other margaritavilles and this one was one of the nicest. I liked the fact you could sit on the balcony over looking the street. It was nicely decorated. The staff were great. The drinks we big, cold and cheap. The food was crap. The sad thing about the food was it was over cooked and...

  • 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...

  • Deanie's

    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...

  • 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...

  • Jaques-Imo's

    4.5 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...

  • Pat O's

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    When you walk in the place has low lighting but it also has a lighted fountain (2 actually). It can be a romantic place an night. The music, the lighting and the food make it all worthwhile. The main area is actually a courtyard. There are 3 bars and a resturant part. We just had burgers and drinks. They were very good.

  • Brennan's

    4 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...

  • Gumbo Shop

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    We struggled mightily on where to go our final night, and finally went to the Concierge to assist us. She suggested the Gumbo Shop, and after much deliberation, our 9-person group headed over there. It looked like we might get off to a rough start when we told the hostess 9 - but they scrambled and set up a table to accommodate us. There are two...

  • Bubba Gump's Shrimp

    New Orleans Restaurants

    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...

    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

    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...

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Named after a French pastry/doughnut cross and covered with icing sugar. This open air cafe serves breakfast lunch and dinner. During the afternoon there is a 3 piece band that plays. The band is called Steamboat Willie Jazz Band. This was our intro to New Orleans since we just arrived and wanted to hear some music. It was so relaxing having a...

    muriel's is a very good contemporary creole restaurant located in the french quarter. muriel's has a refined 19 th century decor and is a relaxing place to have lunch or dinner. in my opinion one of the better restaurants in the french quarter.

  • Coop's Place

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Coop’s Place is a small, down to earth bar with friendliest staff we met in New Orleans. A lot of people (the locals) like to stand at the bar and have their dinner there but we preferred a table next to the wall (like most of the visitors), the wooden tables give a nice touch to this casual and definitely not fancy place, a cute place with a laid...

    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....

    They have facinating gourments and the steak you get is bigger with cheaper prices and is so delicious and i love it. The sea food such shrimp, oster, crawl fish and ect. they are so good and u will come back for more, the prices of the food is not bad at all compare to the other restaurant. I love the Steakmeat, crawfish and shrimp.

    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,...

  • Napoleon House Bar & Cafe

    4.5 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...

  • Port of Call

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Port of Call is famous for its burgers, steaks, and monsoon drinks. I was amazed to find a 45 minute wait or longer in the restaurant that was old and really kind of trashy. We all had burgers, which range in price from $10 to $13 depending on the toppings. The burgers are big, with a half pound of ground beef and are served with lettuce, tomatoes,...

    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...

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Surprisingly I did not eat in too many Cajun restaurants when I was in New Orleans. This is because those I found in the French Quarter seemed to be tourist dives. Also I was trying to save cash, knowing that I would be out most nights and needed entertainment money. I came across The Original Pierre Maspero's while wandering the French Quarter and...

Luckily for us we were able to get in as there was only one reservation left. We walked here from our hotel. It was an easy walk a few miles away. To our surprise as we were eatting our dinner Kevin Costner comes in with a...

  • Red Fish Grill

    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.

    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...

    If you're looking for the ultimate Southern formal dining experience, you'll find it here. A jacket is required, and the waiters are tuxedoed. Generally, the "old money" families are seated upstairs, and the tourists are seated downstairs. Some of the dishes we had were the asparagus salad (fresh), crabmeat maison (very good), filet mignon...

The other food we had there was pretty...

Never even got to eat at the place, but if you are serious about the event you are booking, stay away from the Palace Cafe. There are many good...

    I am a Hard Rock Cafe junkie - I seek them out, they are part of my travel destination criteria. That being said, I love this location. That it is my local Hard Rock makes me a bit biased, since I have visited this one more times than any other. The St. Peters Street location moved in December 2012; it is now located in the heart of the French...

    The place is a long standing resturant the 2nd oldest in New Orleans. The food is always wonderful and worth coming back for, but be prepared for the service- it is always slow. The ambience is pleasent, it is a bit on the fancier side of places. Though I have worn a nice shirt and jeans. They have a set menu in the evening which is really very...

    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...

No awkward moment were someone has their food...

    My girlfriends and I were walking on Bourbon Street on a Sunday, trying to find a place to eat and cool off. We're locals, so we stopped at Sammy's to check out the seafood, because it wasn't crowded and it looked nice. Keep in mind that we're all 20, we know how to act in a restaurant, and we were dressed appropriately. Everything seemed fine...

    I actually went to an offshoot of Arnaud's called Arnaud's Remoulade, which is a little less expensive, but has most of the same foods. It claims to offer casual Creole cuisine. I had some raw oysters and a Natchitoches Meat Pie, which comes served on a metal platter and actually has two small pies filled with a subtlely spiced meat. I sat at the...

    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.

The patio is partly covered but watch out for the birds :) For $20 we had cappuccino coffee and we ordered a huge muffuletta (pic...

    Mr B's Bistro is part of the famed Brennan's empire and it shows. The food quality is excellent, but you will pay for it. Unlike other restaurants around the country, entrees are pretty much ala carte - so be prepared to spend about $100 per couple - easily. That having been said, you won't be sorry. You have to treat yourself to at least one good...
