My husband and I stayed across the street at Harrahs. We were told about this quaint cafe in Loews hotel. The service and food were very good. We will return. Very reasonable.

As someone who has lived in NOLA and spent years visiting there, I was disappointed in Cafe Adelaide. I expected so much more for a special Monday breakfast. I also expected anything associated with Commanders to be outstanding. Service was poor. Our whole order never...More

From my understanding the Swizzle Stick Bar was a NOLA institution that is now within the Loews hotel. The drink and food menus are good, but not unique or expertly made. The bar decor and atmosphere are surprisingly generic - it feels like a hotel...More

I found this place last time I visited New Orleans. It's right across the street from the casino. I ate at the bar and the service was great and very friendly. They make a very nice Old Fashioned at the bar. I started my meal...More

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

There is a private dining area. I don't think it can hold more than about 35 people. But I could be wrong. If you call their event person they would be more than happy to assist you and if not there they may be able to... More
