ONE Restaurant and Lounge reviews from OpenTable diners

    Dined on 12/31/2013
    I can only comment from the perspective of the NYE set menu...which was a great deal at $35. I was hoping for much richer flavors in the food and more enthusiasm (holiday cheer) from the staff.

    Dined on 12/31/2013
    We had an early dinner on New Year's Eve, and every table was booked. The kitchen and staff held up well. We had been to ONE before, and the food is very good-- well-sourced ingredients treated well, often in imaginative combinations that almost always work (scallops with blueberry jam, charbroiled oysters with roquefort cheese). The wine list is simple and safe but affordable. This is one area the restaurant might seek to improve.

    I have been here a couple of times. Each time, usually for lunch, I have enjoyed the food. Never had a bad meal there. Found a GC someone gave me because I commented on how much I loved One, in 2007 it was new to me. They honored the GC form 2007. True professionals.

    The place is a little neighborhood gem, just the right size to have an intimate dinner. The menu was not over whelming and offered enough of a variety to satisfy anyone's palate. The food was exceptional; not over seasoned nor too rich; enjoyable to the last bite. The portion size was just right. The aroma wafting from the cooking area enhanced the eating pleasure.

    Dined on 12/4/2013
    Walked in with a guest visiting from San Francisco. We had dined here twice before, but not within the last 2 years. We entered feeling like we were interrupting a private party of staff. Hostess, who also doubled as our wait person, was not welcoming and the place was freezing. As there were ever so few customers that night, the staff heard us discuss how cold it was, but no one initiated turning up the temperature on the AC. Two of us went to order the same item ONLY to be told at that time that they were out of the item that night (good service would have apologized to us upon seating that they were out of a particular item that night).

    Not being from NOLA and unsucessfull at getting a reservations to a popular restaurant, looked on open table and found ONE. I read the reviews and they were right on the money. The Blackened Drum is delicious. We ordered 2 orders of crab cakes and they were so good that both my kids wanted their own as a main dish.

    The only thing that was better than the well presented and excellent tasting food was the service. All of the appetizers are good, and the "merliton chips" are a find.The house's were worth buying down.

    Loved the ambiance and the food was amazing! All of my guest thoroughly enjoyed their meals. I received a personal call from the owner thanking me for my reservation and ensuring that every request I had was met to the best of his ability. They payed attention to the details of what I asked for in my reservation, and everything was set up on time for my party. The server Valerie was very patient with my demanding toddler and she smiled the whole night! Loved my experience! I will definitely be back!! Thanks ONE!!!!

    This was a recommended place to dine and we had a great visit all the way around. Couldn't have been more pleased. With so many options to choose from, places like One have to bring their A game. Well done. We will be back shortly.

    One is an upscale neighborhood restaurant. The decor is pleasingly contemporary, the service seamless, and the food excellent. Don't be fooled by the modest and not particularly inviting exterior. The interior is beautiful.

    Our dinner was most enjoyable- The food was perfectly prepared and presented, and the overall experience was great. I mention yet again- When we tell you that it is someone's birthday and no special treatment is given, even so much as a cookie, it is a little disappointing-

    Every time we go to One we are just blown away with the variety and creativity of the food. Seafood is always extremely fresh, and treated so delicately. Alway a home run. Apps are top shelf with great variety. The menu also includes several choices for vegetarians. Wine list is well chosen and varied. One usually has a promotion going almost all of the time. Two courses and a glass of wine will usually fill almost any diner. Great little place. Try the food bar. Watch the chefs cook and then decide what you want for your dinner or lunch. Only criticism is that it can get loud when you get into the heart of service. Try early or late reservations.

    This restaurant is very good and has been kept secret. The crabmeat appetizer is specially presented w thin sliced mirliton fried crisp and it the best in the city. They have great specialty drinks and the food is severed hot. It's one of our go to restaurants.

    Had a 7.30 reservation - not exactly late! While we were eating our entrees they started shutting the place down, clearing out the open kitchen, and turning off the lights. Waitress shoves the bill on the table and didn't even have the courtesy to ask if we would like dessert or coffees. Didnt even give us time to finish our wine....or clear the plates. Really poor behavior....really makes it tough to recommend

    Love the "house converted to a restaurant" feel, The crab cakes w/fried mirliton appetizer was fabulous. The scallop appetizer was delicious too but didn't think the blueberries belonged on the plate. the couchon de lait entree was top notch. Didn't care for the fish entree at all, it had a fishy taste which is unacceptable in New Orleans, and the broth was bland. Our experience overall was very good as our waiter was attentive, friendly & helpful. The "Coolinary" menu is available year round, 2 dishes with a glass of wine for $35.

    Our meal was delicious. We went for the coolinary menu which was the entire lunch menu. The shrimp and grits were the best I have had; their grilled oysters were absolutely delicious. One of our friends was late, very late, and the waiter was so kind and patient. We had a wonderful time and can't wait to go again.

    The cuisine and the service achieve a quality that one would would never expect from the exterior appearance. One is among the best uptown restaurants and should make locals realize that the best dining experiences can be found within a mile from home.

    The food was outstanding and was very satisfying without being overly rich.The appetizers were a little to big and could have been a main course, this i not a bad thing, and they should offer a cup of soup instead of it being a bowl. This caused me to feel full and not be able to finish my main course. I did take it home and had a wonderful lunch the next day.
