A word from Ignatius Eatery
If it ain't New Orleans, then we ain't got it! Authentic creole comfort food and a few of Chef Ignatius' very own creations. A New Orleans traditional atmosphere. You'll feel like this place has been around since the 1800's because it has (the building anyway) Located in the Fabulous Garden District of New Orleans on the most vibrant section of Famous Magazine Street between 8th and 9th street

    While visiting the city I took my wife here for New Years dinner and was disappointed. All was just average. They forgot our bread and we had to ask, the meatloaf was very dry. They were out of the deviled eggs. The stuffed bell pepper was very good though. Just a okay experience and I don't need to go back.

    KItchen was overwhelmed by larger than expected crowd - waited over an hour for food to arrive. This was very unusual but we returned next evening (12/31) and things vastly improved. Food served promptly and as ususl was very good.

    Two friends and I have inaugurated the first annual "Last Saturday Night of the Year" dinner and I think we will go back to Ignatius every year. The food was very good - we all had the crawfish etouffee. And we loved the quotes on the wall from "A Confederacy of Dunces" and the offering candles. Sort of quirky place, fun and with good food.

    Great spot if you have guests from out of town who want to sample local creole and cajun cuisine. Gumbo, Jambalaya, Crawfish, Shrimp, Trout, Redfish, Boudin... and plenty of Po-Boys to choose from.

    I've been here twice and the food is good, but my last experience was unpleasant. We had a reservation weeks in advance for 8. We called the day of our reservation to ask if we could add two people and move up the by 1/2 hour and were told it was no problem. When we arrived there was no table big enough for us & the manager told us to sit at two separate tables. I told him this was unacceptable & he responded that were late (we arrived about 7:40) and htat another group was at our table. So they crammed chairs around a small table but said they would "take care of us. Nobody ever apologized, checked on us, or offered a discount. Eventually when a nearby table cleared they added a table to ours. Good food but rotten customer service.

    I took my parents to Ignatius on their first trip to NOLA so I wanted something with a local flare. The menu was simple and had plenty of the creole flavors I was looking for. We got a table at 5pm so there was only a few other people in there. Food was great as was the location and service.

    The food was great, however, service was extremely slow and often times we thought we had been forgotten. It seemed as if they may have been short a server. I would still recommend the restaurant and we would return for more delicious food!

    Dined on 10/19/2013
    After matinee theater we ate here. Weather was perfect so we could have eaten at a sidewalk table but our guest chose to eat inside. Very nice tile floors and bentwood chairs gave an old New Orleans feel to this Magazine Street eatery. The fried green tomatoes were delicious as were the seafood stuffed eggs. Oyster Po Boy was fully dressed and delicious on crispy French bread. Hadn't gotten too busy this early so we enjoyed being able to visit without much background noise. For anyone who has enjoyed the book, A Confederacy of Dunces, it might be especially appropriate.

    Many excellent and creative dishes on the menu, plus the staples like red beans and rice are as good as any I've had in New Orleans. Why else should you go here: it is reasonably priced, has attentive service, a great Magazine Street location, and a pretty dining room.

    Who can beat finding a neighborhood gem on fun Magazine Street with delicious New Orleans specialties at great prices and wonderful waitstaff? Try the Shrimp & Grits for some of the best you'll find. Trout Meuniere was a nice size piece of fish & prepared just right. Good happy hour prices as well.

    Go for lunch, sit outside, and order the jambalaya (it's awesome!) and one of their specialty cocktails, but expect to stay awhile because the service is VERY slow.

    I went with a group of six ranging in age from 90 to 11. The menu is small but everyone in our party loved their dinner. I had the duck with the greens! Yummy! The service was quick and friendly. I would return our next trip to New Orleans!

    We went around 9:30pm on a Friday for a light dinner. Had the fried green tomato salad. Delicious. We chose a sidewalk table which provided for some good Friday night people watching on Magazine Street. Good, attentive service. Casual relaxed atmosphere. We'll be back.

    I had lunch at Ignatius after searching for an open table for Sunday brunch. Staff was great, and I didn't actually need to reservation I made. A creative brunch menu, and patrons generally seemed happy. Service was exemplary. I wish I'd ordered something else (besides the Jambalaya Omelet), but it was OK and you might really like it. I'd go back and just think harder about my menu choice.

    There are so many great places to eat in New Orleans. Although the shrimp and grits were tasty, the fish was just ok. In another city this place would be very good, but in a city for foodies it was just ok.

    Hit the mark with flavors! Gumbo, red beans&rice, crawfish étouffée were best we've had. Tasty sausage flavor makes the difference. Serving sizes were just right. Zachery provided good service, had good advice on drinks too: we enjoyed "Sunset on the levee" cocktail. "french75" wasn't as good. Place is quite casual. Of all the places we've visited for local food, I'd put this in the top three. And prices were reasonable. It didn't feel touristy. There were tables on the sidewalk but we chose to eat inside. Although I listed noise as "energetic," it wasn't uncomfortably loud even when quite full. Interesting decor, old building with high ceilings.

    There isn't anything spectacular about Ignatius. However, it does offer traditional New Orleans cuisine at a price that is much much lower than most of the nice restaurants in New Orleans.
