A word from Landry's Seafood House - New Orleans
No trip to the iconic New Orleans French Quarter is complete without a visit to Landry’s Seafood. Taking its Gulf Coast roots from the great state of Louisiana, Landry's is no stranger to New Orleans cuisine and all that it has to offer. And since it's located just a few blocks away from notable French Quarter attractions such as Louis Armstrong Park, Woldenberg Park and the Riverwalk Marketplace, there's always something fun and exciting going on nearby. Stop by for a taste of Louisiana hospitality, quality seafood and the experience of one of the best restaurants in the French Quarter. You can even kick back with a refreshing Mango Mojito while taking in a view of the historic surroundings.

    I have been to other Landry's and they feel more upscale - this one in New Orleans feels too common, and I think it's the ambiance. However the food and service were on par with my expectations, and that's what matters. Well done!

    This was our last dinner during our stay in New Orleans. Our server Nicole was fantastic! She made great recommendations, and was friendly and very knowledgable regarding the food and drinks! Food was outstanding! Had the Crawfish Bread appetizer, and the Redfish with the Ponchertrane topping! The mango mojito was fantastic too!

    We went for a great birthday dinner, and the food was just acceptable. The drinks were very good, though. Our table was located in front of the swinging kitchen doors. You couldn't help seeing in the kitchen doors and looking at the mess on the floors. There was little in the way of sweeping or clean-up in the kitchen including spilled ice from drinks. The entire staff seemed in a 'hurry' and it detracted from the desire to have a nice, relaxing dinner.

    Very good food at Landry's. Unfortunately service was very poor. On a restaurant that was almost empty, the waitress paid very little attention to our party despite it being 10 people.

    We were a group of 9 family and friends with reservations at 2:0PM. One of our party uses a wheelchair. We were easily accommodated. The staff was warm and welcoming. Our specific wait staff was friendly and helped with recommendations regarding food and drinks. We sampled the crawfish bread, fried green tomatoes: both excellent appetizers. The gumbo was really good (most of us are native New Orleanians so we know good gumbo) as were the red beans and rice. Our waitress suggested a combo plate of grilled fish/crawfish étouffée/jambalaya which was awesome. The portions were generous but not huge. We left full and excited about our great French Quarter find!

    The food is always great. The service never is. Every time I come to New Orleans I must stop at Landrys. The food is always great but the service is. The last time I came myself, and two families members sat at the bar to enjoy drinks and dinner. We are all of professional working fields and dress attire reflexed so. The bartender required us to leave a credit card on file for our tab before ordering. The most recent interaction was last weekend. I ordered three appetizers and within 25 seconds ask the waitress to cancel one of them. She stated she couldn't because they were about to come out. They appetizers were very late but good. There was no hand wash in the bathroom. I informed them. They placed a industrial gallon size bucket w soap

    Had a reservation for 8:15, upon arrival they told me I had a 30-45 minute wait (same as the people walking up). So don't bother making reservations at this place because they do not hold them. No clue on food wince we did not eat there due to a 45 minute wait and them not accepting our reservation. Host was quite rude also.

    My brother and I decided to have our birthday dinner at Landry's, mainly because of past experiences that were awesome. As always, the service and food were spectacular. All in attendance enjoyed their meals and had a great time. We will definitely be visiting again, especially the French Quarter location. Also, we were late due to traffic and parking struggles, but the staff was very accommodating. Be sure to plan ahead for parking and traffic as NOLA is a BUSY city.

    My friend and I have tried a number of eating establishments since vacationing in New Orleans. We've enjoyed ourselves in most, but Landry's by far was the best. The food, service and ambiance was hands down....remarkable ! We'd return and recommend it to any and all our friends as well as to total strangers asking for advice .

    We went to Landry's because our friends were in from out of town and they are "members" . Server did not know beer list...came back 2 times to tell us they didn't have what she offered to us so it took a while to get drinks delivered. Had the Mahi Mahi blackened and it was really good. very large portion of fish- too big for me to eat, my husband had the crab cakes- mostly filler, his grits were decent, but my dirty rice was not very exciting- again too large of a portion. My green beans were very good tho- Another in our party had the fried oysters and let me try one- delish! but they only offer fried oysters with fries- i would have ordered them if they were served with different sides or over pasta.

    My wife and I split the BBQ Shrimp and Crab Cake the flavor profiles mixed well but I would have preferred the dish more if they had separated the shrimp from the Crab Cake and pimento cheese grits( that we're great) and given us more of a New Orleans style BBQ sauce. But it was a very good flavor combination overall. And a few more shrimp for the price.

    Landry's in the French Quarter is always a winner. They have excellent food, and they are right in the heart of the French Quarter. As with most restaurants in the older buildings in that area, the noise level is rather high. The food is excellent. Even though the kitchen did not get my husband's order quite right, they made it right in the end and the manager adjusted the tab accordingly. The service is great. Call ahead for reservations for an evening meal as the line can be long at times.

    They honored our OpenTable reservation very well, on a holiday (Mother's Day). We got there 5 minutes early and they found us on their computer and had us seated by the time our reservation time arrived (on a holiday). Now that's impressive, considering that the restaurant appeared full with people waiting to be seated. Then our waitress was so friendly. She made us feel like pleasing us was very important to her. The food was excellent, and we didn't feel rushed to finish to make space for folks coming behind us. Although we were courteous and did not overstay, it was nice not to feel rushed. Landry's is a great tourist attraction, but it caters well to us locals as well. An excellent choice.

    We were a party of seven on Mother's Day. The restaurant was busy, but we had so much fun that it was almost like home. We brought a cake in because it was my Mom's birthday. (She is 85 years old)! Our waitress set it up on a small table beside our large one. She cleared all the used plates and brought dessert dishes. It was really good service. All in all, it was a delicious afternoon.

    Overall a great dining experience. The food was exceptionally prepared and presented. The atmosphere was very comfortable yet classy. Our server was kind, friendly, and genuinely seemed to care about our needs; but either lacked experience or skill because the service left something to be desired.The MahiMahi I had seemed dry and overcooked. On the other had, the dirty rice was so good I could have made a meal out of only it. Also the cocktail I ordered was a adequately sized if not more than for the price; and was great tasting. The crawfish bread is also definitely something worth trying.
