    This restaurant isn't a gourmet place, but the food is still good, tasty and reasonable for the price. It is a fun atmosphere, part way bar and partly restaurant, which makes for a lively mood. I went a while ago with my family (4 teenagers) and it was fun for them too, but it is not a spot for a romantic quiet dinner!

    On a good note, the hostesses and waiters that we had were awesome. They were super nice and very helpful. I came here with a party of 6 people, and between the 6 of us we had 5 different entrees. Only one of these entrees was even halfway decent. The food was extremely bland even though there were supposed to be so many flavors. My burger was supposed to have pepper jack cheese, a garlic sauce, and sausage links. This has potential to be extremely delicious. However, the only thing that I could taste was beef, plain beef. There was nothing else. Everyone else's entree had the same issue. Everything that came out lacked any type of flavor whatsoever.

    energetic noise is being polite, it was ridiculously noisy. Great atmosphere is you want to sit at the bar or downstairs bar area, but not good for dining upstairs. Decent food but nothing special. Plenty of other places on restaurant row and in Hells Kitchen/Theater district with better food and quieter atmosphere for dining.

    The only good thing I can say is that arriving late from the theater they held a 10:00 reservation until 10:30. However, the restaurant was not crowded so we could have walked in anyway. The noise was so loud you could not even hear yourself talk at the table sitting right across from your party. Food was terrible and my pulled pork sandwich was unedible! Bill was outrageous for what we had considering it was so bad. Won't ever go back!

    This note is from a culinary student. My dinner died in the window! Fish, while a decent flavor was cold and no longer crispy. Spinach and potato dish needed seasoning. Grits were set already they had been sitting so long. Still, food was tasty, But get with the program. Ambiance good, music too loud to hear partner.

    Its a good place for brunch if you want to do an unlimited mimosa/bloody mary deal. I've done brunch here many times and the service varies every time. My server this past time was very attentive to our table and quiet personable however the bartender seemed to get backed up as well. If you do decide to do the unlimited mimosa/bloody mary deal, do the mimosas. Every time my friends choose bloody mary, they always wind up waiting for them to be made. It is a sports bar type place so it got rather loud during the game, but hey, its called Bourbon St. Would you expect it to be quiet?

    This restaurant has a great crowd and the longest happy hour I have ever experienced. Their happy hours is Mon - Friday until 8 pm. Drinks and beer is very inexpensive. Televisions around the restaurant to keep you entertained and abreast of meals and drink specials. Overall I have gone here twice and have not been disappointed. The type of food and the variety of food there will take you a few minutes to decide what you want to have. Also, the prices are within a decent budget.

    Bourbon Street is OK, but it really depends on what you are going for. More of a NOLA themed bar than proper restaurant. I don't fault the restaurant for living up to its name sake street and being a little loud. But rubbery, overcooked seafood, burned (or raw) rice, and up-charging me for premium spirits without asking me are not OK. Based upon the items I ate, I would avoid the more expensive main courses they didn't get right and treat this more as a happy hour alternative to the Pubs in Times Square and stick with simple things like fried pickles and hush puppies. The slider special also looked like a good deal. Either way I would be sure to keep my eye on the bill and make sure that I am not shadily up-charged for drinks.

    Jambalaya, Jambalaya, Jambalaya!! As you guessed, the Jambalaya was great.. They also have gator meatballs which were pretty good.. The decor is amazing, after being in NOLA last year, I felt like I was back on Bourbon St.. Request upstairs seating overlooking the restaurant or outdoor balcony seating on a nice night.. Lots of night life near by too as its located on the beautiful restaurant row.. Go to a piano bar or comedy club afterwards and make it a great night out

    I've dined at Bourbon Street on numerous occasion, whether it be for dinner, bottomless brunch, hanging at the bar to watch games and even celebrating Fat Tuesday there 2 years in a row. I was extremely disappointed this weekend to find that the menu had changed away from things that make a signature "New Orleans" restaurant. The portions are now small and plated PERFECTLY without any sauces, the "cheese grits" are now polenta-like, and there are no longer beniets (classic NO) on the menu, and the amazing cocktail menu is gone. Change is good but authenticity and flavor is better.

    We chose this restaurant because we had a friend with us who went to college in New Orleans. The menu selections included traditional Bourbon Street faire, such as catfish and chicken & biscuits. The gumbo was flavorful (though inexplicably served with a small teaspoon) - the jambalaya was a bit too spicy - and the shrimp creole was nothing special. All in all - serviceable food in a cute atmosphere - with big screen TVs around for sports fans.

    Had better meals for less money. Booked in advance but got a rubbish table near an outside door, like a wind tunnel. Had to be moved, waitress was nice, but manager/owner insisted she tried to get people to have another drink.Food was very average,and people at the bar noisy. Through other reviews we thought this would be a good restaurant. But out of 6 restaurants we went to this was the worst.

    There were three in my party for dinner. We chose this place because of the proximity to the theater. We arrived around 6:30 pm and were out of there within an hour. We informed our waiter that we had a play to see and he expedited our food with no problems. He checked on our table during the course of our delicious meal to make sure everything was okay. They have a three appetizer for a price, which was very filling and more than enough food for one person. This is a perfect meal at just the right price. The menu was on line as I perused it prior to arriving at the restaurant, as I knew we didn't have much time to waste. Overall it was a great experience and all three in my party already plan on returning.

    Since conversation during our pre-theatre dinner was impossible due to SUPER-loud (NOT New Orleans jazz) pop music, my husband and I were reduced to watching 'Americas funniest near-fatal falls' and 'when animals attack' on the unavoidable big-screens. I recall the food as being mostly brown & beige. It was a total mis-match for us. If you're even a slightly sophisticated New Yorker...pass it by. However- the wait staff was attentive and efficient. And the food came so fast it may as well have been shot from a canon. Looking to get plastered cheap? This is the place for you.

The regular menu looks great too and again I like the prices. They have happy hour on beer for lunch time, all like $3 or $4.......will definitely go back there try for dinner. There are some tables on 2nd floor's nice romantic patio overlooking 46th street......only open for dinner time though.

    Went for pre-theater lunch. 12:30 reservation. A very warm day and with an open front door it was too hot and noisy (loud music playing) in the bar area so I asked for a table upstairs. It wasn't better up there. Drink orders taken. No bread was offered. After 20 minutes, I had to ask for cornbread which took too long to come.. Then nothing until 1:35. We had to ask twice about our meals. The only other occupied upstairs table had to ask where their food was, too. No apology offered when the food arrived, only when we mentioned it when paying the check. If our show had been at 2:00, we wouldn't have had time to eat. Chicken/corn chowder was way too thick and not very warm. The catfish and sides were good, but ruined by poor service.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2002
    Dined on 7/26/2013
    The service at this restaurant was poor and incredibly disorganized. The server, was all over the place and couldn't keep our orders straight. He tried to blame the food order mistake on the kitchen, but considering getting our drink order right seemed to be a challenge for him, I highly doubt the kitchen was at fault. On top of the that, he attempted to imply that a drink order he forgot was our fault. I also noticed that the wait staff and cook staff liked to relax around the patio bar and drink. Perhaps nominally understandable if business was slow, this was a Friday evening and the restaurant was packed. I will never be back. I encourage folks to steer clear, unless poor service and mediocre food it what you enjoy.

    The bloody marys were kind of watery. The portions were kind of small (for the price). Our service was kind of unattentive. And our table rocked on uneven legs. Any one of these things wouldn't be the biggest deal, but put them all together and it just makes me wish I had just bought some eggs and bloody mary mix and made it all at home. The inside of this restaurant is so spacious and lovely - I want to love this place and make it my Cheers, but every 6 months (when I give it another try) it always seems to fall short.

    I went to this restaurant with a friend before attending a musical show. I've read decent reviews and thought I'd try it out especially since it was only a block away from the theatre. We ordered from the pre-fixed menu getting a salad, the chicken and biscuits dish and a brownie and ice cream for dessert. Sounds good right? Well unfortunately, I was very disappointed. I've had better salad from a local food chain and the chicken and biscuits was flavorless. The biscuit was hard and dry and whatever "gravy" they used was not appetizing. The only "decent" thing I had was the dessert. And to make matters worse, the AC barely worked. Perhaps if I tried their Hurricane drink I might have liked the place more.

    Wanted to have dinner and catch up with a friend. The location is very convenient to Times Square. Had the Prix Fix menu. Good value, good choices and good food. Very good desserts! The service was very good. The restaurant is very noisy, so even though we were at an out of the way table of the 2nd floor, it was difficult to carry on a conversation.
