    Having lived in New Orleans for 6 years this is by far the best New Orleans styled restaurant not located in new orleans. The blackened catfish was amazing. Truly enjoyed this restaurant, cannot wait to return

    Vibrant scene, loved the ambiance and the food amazing. Had the ribs that were fall off the bone delicious and the wings were extremely tasty. The calamari was crispy and perfect! The location being just outside the hustle and bustle of Times Square was perfect. I would definitely come back again.

    Have been looking for a really good cajun restaurant in nyc for a very long time and thought Bourbon Street might be the answer. Although it wasn't bad, it wasn't great either. My jamblaya was served in a way I've never had it before - the andouille sausage was sliced and the chicken shredded into the rice. My only thought is that it was done this way to avoid serving an entire sausage and an entire chicken breast. Frankly I'd rather pay a little more than be served basically a plate of rice with a little meat mixed in. However, the spice level was good and the sauce served on the side was good too. Don't know whether I'd go back.

    Food was fair to good. Happy hour drinks seemed a bit watered down (two house cocktails and no buzz at all). Music was so loud that we could not talk to each other very well. Also disappointing was our table seating....upstairs on a busy walkway right next to the busser's station...for a reservation. Walk ins seemed to get better seats than we did.

    Booked this in advance prior to a Broadway show - what a find!!!! This Bar and Grill is along 'Restaurant Row' but is THE BEST on the row, in my opinion. The bar was lively, cocktails superb and bar service was great. Food was delish, service was slick but not pushy and great value - went back there for a 2nd hit during a 6 day visit. Location is brilliant as just off the busy Times Square / Broadway scene.

    The food was very good in keeping with the New Orleans style. Our service was also good with our waitress making suggestions that were spot on. But there were only 2 of us in our group and we were seated at a table that barely had any room for both our food and for our personal space. On Saturday night they did not have a full house and seating at the booth would have been more comfortable. There were several open at the time we went (6 p.m.). The restaurant clearly caters to groups but not for couples.

    Everything here was perfect, well almost and that's why I gave it 3 stars. Music level is so high it's impossible to hear each other. We couldn't even hear our wonderful, excellent waitress (Sarah) speak. It was the most uncomfortable dinner. Everyone around us felt t/same way. We tried to make the best of it but it was just horrible. Loved the videos, but why does t/music have to be that loud. It's ashame that such a nice gem could be ruined by t/loudness of the music. If I were out dancing, it would have been perfect, not a place to hold a conversation. If all you want to do is eat and look at your company w/o speaking, then this is the place for you. Sadly I would never go here again. Turn down the music and I would go back.

    Have been here before, was good again, will return. Brunch offers some good drink specials, pitcher of Mimosa refreshing and the Bloody Mary was just spicy enough. Sat in bar area which turned out good, was quiet. I had my usual Eggs and jambalaya, was huge and tasty, couldnt finish it. Hubby enjoyed hamburger and french toast pretty good. (didn't get fresh fruit with it but not required so didn't question.) Our food was out so quickly but we remained drinking Mimosa's after for a time so ok.

    Had hoped this would be a nice slice of New Orleans cooking after a matinee show on a Saturday. The food was disappointing. They had a tough time dealing with a minor special request on one dish and prepared it all wrong in the end. One dish was described as "blackened" but there was no skill to the preparation of the food, there was just a ton of pepper sprinkled on the sauce. Shrimp were very tiny and clearly prepared from frozen. Our dishes were dried out from sitting too long before being served. They tried to serve entrees while we were in the middle of the appetizers. Our plates were left in the warmer. We skipped desert and left asap. If you want "TGI Fridays" type food Bourbon St. is fine otherwise I suggest you avoid this place.

    Cajun food is my favorite food of all. Having lived and traveled the south I have had some of the best. In NYC I have found a couple that are OK, but Bourbon Street is the best Cajun in NYC and compares to some of the best I have had in New Orleans, Alabama, Texas and other parts of the south.

    My husband and I went to this restaurant right after we saw "Bullets over Broadway." In the notorious "Restaurant Row," it was walking distance from our theater, which was great. We got our table right away, which was on the second floor, looking over the bar--very cool. The waitress was prompt, nice, and very personable--she asked us about the show. It was very easy to pick something from the menu (if you like Southern/Cajun-style food) and the prices are great (there is a fixed price menu which worked for my husband and I since we shared the dessert). I had the catfish which was spicy but delicious. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for the food and great ambience!

    My husband and I came here after a matinee play, and it was good, but I was hoping it would be better. We both ordered a flat bread appetizers, and they were good, but probably not in keeping with the food style of the restaurant. For dinner, he ordered a Blackened Shrimp Po' Boy and I had the Cajun Jambalaya. His was pretty good, and the dirty rice part of my entree was OK, but, it was nearly impossible to find the chicken or sausage that were in it -- it was almost all rice. We may both be spoiled as we're used to the food at another cajun-style restaurant in Central NJ that's one of our favorites. The decor and atmosphere were enjoyable, it was quite clean, and the wait staff was very friendly and attentive.

    We had dinner and drinks here on a Friday night at approximately 7:30pm for a group of 4 people. The food, a good mix of Southern Cajun-styled dishes, was generally very good. The drinks were also well done. The service could have been better, mostly because it took us such a long time to get any drinks. I think the bartender was new so that takes a while. The outdoor patio space on the second floor was a great open air area to enjoy the summer air. Definitely recommend.

    This is our third time at Bourbon Street and while we love the food, which is why we've come back, for some reason this time, the noise level was off the charts. Last time was in March and it wasn't as busy, I suppose. But this being the summer... we were upstairs at a table for two and literally had to shout the whole time. We were there during happy hour and the bar was hopping, which is great if you like that kind of thing... but it's not for us. I suppose next time we'll try lunch or at a time when there isn't likely to be as much noise.

It was such a perfect weather for outdoor Happy Hour. We ordered a few appetizers (fried pickles was good!) and entrees to share (5 of us). Waitress was friendly and the food came out in timely manner. Jambalaya was my favorite. Girls were all happy to dine here. Absolutely next visit soon....

    It was our fourth time as a group going and we all had a wonderful time. Our food was great - we were stuffed on the appetizers! As we went for lunch, took the entrees home and had a great dinner to boot!! We all have VERY different tastes and likes, but everyone could find something that was too good to pass up. Happy Hour drinks were just right - not too heavy and not too light. Have recommended Bourbon Street Grill to other friends and family and they sing the praises.

Great table, good food (especially those fried pickles), catfish was great as was the biscuits and gravy. Pecan pie alamode - mmmmmmm. We all shared and tasted each others food.

    Went to Bourbon St with a group of 6 before a show. One complaint, I arrived early and sat at the bar, it was Happy Hour but wasn't specifically told what drinks were 1/2 price; disappointed I had to pay full price for the two drinks I had. When my friends arrived, we were seated promptly and the wait staff was super great about bringing us our drinks and food quick. Didn't need to wait long for the check either. I would definitely recommend Bourbon Street to my friends as a great place for lunch and after work drinks/dinner.
