    We took our family to New Orleans stayed at the Windsor Court and had dinner at the Grill. It was a great adventure and loved the ambiance with hotel and dinning, then could walk over to the French Quarter for wild and crazy time. Then back to an outstanding hotel. Also, enjoyed a wonderful breakfast too. Thank you!

    The Grill Room was the perfect place for my fiancé to ask me to marry him. The wait staff was highly attentive and helpful in keeping the secret, our table and the entire ambience was romantic, the wine list was extensive, and the food excellent. We chose fresh seafood dishes that were expertly prepared. (Tuna and Grouper). The tomato salad appetizer was delicious. We also shared dessert and were delighted by the entire experience.

    I had ordered from the Coolinary Lunch which was fantastic, but my boyfriend ordered from the lunch menu. He absolutely loved the blue crab remoulade club sandwich, but the gumbo had to be returned since it was inedible; the roux was burnt. That was quite disappointing.

    My wife and I are New Orleans natives and try different restaurants that host the "Coolinary" lunch menu. The grill room was the 4th. The shrimp and corn appetizer was very good, but the entree was barely edible. We both had the Hangersteak with spinach and pommesfrites. The steak was a barely warmed pile of sliced steak pieces served with cold "frozen" tasting French fries and plain spinach. The accompanying bread rolls were hard and unappetizing. We had high expectations that the Grill Room would have well presented and high quality menu, with great service. We were sorely disappointed. The waitress recognized our displeasure with the entree and compted one meal, but the damage was done.

    I chose the Windsor Court full suite for my honeymoon with my beautiful bride, in part because of the Grill Room. I was not disappointed with the restaurant, though it comes with the expected price tag. We came in from Los Angeles, so the prices were not different than what I have become accustom to, but the food was substantially better here!

    Dined on 8/1/2014
    I went with a friend for the special Coolinary lunch menu. Unfortunately, it was disappointing, especially compared to their Coolinary lunch last August, 2013. The starters we had were very good. The entree was delicious, but it was tiny- the size of a small appetizer. We were very surprised when we saw it, 3 shrimp over a couple of tablespoons of corn with a few baby lima beans mixed in. I had been excited to return for a Coolinary lunch this year after having a perfect Coolinary lunch there last year. Last August, there were 3 courses, a starter, a normal sized entree, and a small desert. I'm sorry to see that the Grill Room has cut back. We still loved the atmosphere, location, and delicious (although tiny portioned) food.

    My wife and I got engaged at this hotel 20 years ago and had a fabulous dinner there then. The hotel room was still very nice but I think things have changed a lot in the dining room. I was a bit surprised because NOLA is the dining capital of the US. And I am from New York City and think NOLA is the leader in the service industry across the board. I would stay there again in a heart beat but I am not sure I would use the restaurant.

    We have lived in New Orleans and have been going back for years. For whatever reason we had never tried the Grill Room at Windsor Court. My wife and I were extremely pleased- as everything was delicious and prepared well at a great temperature. The staff was great, I was a little surprised that it wasn't busier, however it is not completely fair to judge on one night. Overall the experience was incredible and would recommend someone to go back there- some interesting drinks and just good atmosphere with the tall windows. - We will do it again

    Took a large group of 12 people. Food was wonderful, but wait staff seems to be more in line with a fast food restaurant. Mixed up orders, forgot food for some folks, service was slow and unattentive. This did not appear to be a rookie wait staff, but certainly either very poorly trained by the Grill Room or totally lacking supervision.

    we had a delicious dinner here (both the scallops and the duck were especially terrific), but they need to put more staff on the floor. They were clearly overextended, so the service was not up to the top quality of the food, which was elegant, beautifully presented, and well thought out. the servers wanted to be attentive, but there were just not enough of them to cover all the tables properly. also, the décor, while elegant, feels a bit fusty and old fashioned, and could use some updating to keep up with the other gorgeous spaces in this wonderful hotel.

One of my classmates and I were in room 618 and Keisha was our "turn down" girl! She was wonderful and couldn't do enough for us...even brought us chocolate-covered strawberries with Happy Birthday written on the plate! We were SO spoiled. The hotel is located within walking distance of everything! I plan to stay again!!! Thank you for everything you did for us! Angie

    I've been to the Grill Room many times over the years. The previous experiences have been elegant, and the food great The menu with limited choices is not what I would expect from a first class New Orleans restaurant. We went to Commander's Palace the other evening and the food experience was wonderful-unfortunately it was not wonderful at the Grill Room. I don't think the restaurant could exist if it wasn't for the hotel to support it.

    The Grill Room is one of the very few places we go to when we have a very special occasion. It is expensive, but so worth it. The waiters are so attentive and friendly. Can't beat the food, and the timing at which the food was brought out. One of my favorite places, because sometimes you back to where you have been to before, and the place isn't the same . But that is not the case here. Everything was wonderful,as always.

    We have stayed at the Windsor Court multiple times and the Grill Room has been, at best, spotty. All that is put to rest by our experience there this week. From the hostess, to the waiter and busperson, to the floor manager the service was outstanding. The food may have exceeded the service! Perfectly cooked and presented, timely and tasty. Pricey? Sure, but well worth it.

    The Windsor Court Hotel is a landmark , up-market hotel in New Orleans. It has a marvelous location. The Grill Room is stunningly beautiful. Intimate, French décor.... a cocoon of a gentle world of perfect manners and wonderful food. The choice of food was authentic French Louisiana, with choices for everyone. If you want a salad, this will be the best salad you will have. We had brunch. I had the crab cake eggs Benedict. Simply unbelievable. You need to dress up, bring an appetite, and a few hours to savor a world gone by. Cherie A.

    Everything about the Windsor Court and the Grill Room is first class with the exception of their dress code. It may be my particular take on this but I am sure that the Windsor Court would be just as busy if they refused entry into the dining room to people dressed in cargo shorts and/or sweat pants and T-Shirts. The service, food and entertainment were top notch. The guys chugging bear in shorts and t-shirts and the woman in the sweat pants I could have easily done without. This type of attire just diminishes the overall experience.

    When we dine out at a fine restaurant and spend over $100 per person, we expect to be able to talk to each other. This was not the case when we dined at the Grille Room. While the food was excellent, the band in the bar was way too loud and we were unable to have any conversation across our table of 8. In addition another table nearby was talking over the music and became so loud the entire restaurant seemed annoyed with them. The restaurant offered no recompense although we complained gently to the waiter.
