We arrived early for our reservation, and offered to wait in the bar. The bar turned out to be very small and crowded and it was difficult to get the bartender's attention to get a drink. We were finally ushered to our table, walking through the kitchen to get there. (One whole section of the restaurant was on the other... More

We had a large group that kept on getting larger at Delmonico. The restaurant accommodated us after a while and we had two large tables. Started with the lump crab. It was what I expected but was quite good. The crawfish balls were nice as well. The alligator soup was a bit underwhelming. I had the duck breast as a... More

Tasting with the Tout at Emerald's Delmonico If you are seeking that dinning experience to remember, then make plans soon to dine at Emerald's Delmonico on " The Avenue." Last week I fulfilled Fran's request to check off this fine establishment from her bucket list. Our reservations were for 8pm ( great time because no reservations behind ours). Upon our... More

We had dinner here one night last week, make sure you make reservations ahead of time. The atmosphere is very calm, romantic, lights are perfectly dimmed, service was just excellent! It is fine dining with affordable prices, well worth your $$!. Food is not only delicious but the portions are very generous. We had the fried tomatoes, collard greens, meatballs.... More

The food was spectacular and the decor lovely. However, any chance of enjoying the evening was ruined by our (a couple) being set between to 10 top tables of people using thier outside voices. The decibel meter on my phone indicated the noise level was equivilent to a music concert. The noise just made us want to get out of... More

I loved the salmon and Mac and cheese! The food is definitely worth the wait and the cost. The cornbread taste like the best butter ever and the stuffed boudin balls are a great starter!

Upfront this is the type of restaurant you will pay for quality of food, presentation and service. We were extremely pleased with this restaurant. We had wine, a hurricane punch and our daughters enjoyed Shirley Temples. We enjoyed the cheese platter selection, baked oysters, petite filets, red snapper and our youngest was given chicken tenders and fries. Our delicious sides... More

A very quaint restaurant. I found out by visiting here and other old restaurants in NOLA be ready to tackle some stairs to get to your table. I had the Rib-Eye and it was excellent! Service was outstanding also, another trait I found in NOLA at the various restaurants and bars I visited. My group shared a few of their... More

This has been by far our best meal in NOLA. After reading a few reviews we made our way to dinner. We were greeted and seated early for our reservation. The service was outstanding! Water glasses,as well as our daughters Shirley Temple, were promptly refilled. We started with the beet salad and a Caesar salad, both were great but the... More

Staying in Garden District

Neighbourhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
