Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Delicious food, great ambience. Jazz music for Sunday Brunch was nice, but a tad loud. We sat away from the music, but closer would a have had trouble talking a the table. Perfect French press."

This is New Orleans dining at its best and I would highly recommend the Windsor Court Grill to anyone who appreciates high standards and a wonderful restaurant experience."

  • "I booked a reservation at this restaurant for my 1 year anniversary and it was without question, the best dinning experience we've ever had! Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable out the menu and the history of the building and food. Needless to say, the food was impeccable! The Blue Crab "Gratin" was amazing! And out entrées, redfish and strip loin we're beautiful and equally as appetizing! After having blowing our expectations out of the water, we asked for the check and were surprised with a plate that said "Happy Anniversary" with a couple of chocolate covered strawberries and chocolates to finish off this amazing evening! I highly recommend this restaurant! And plan to return on one of our next special occasions!"

  • "The food choices and the meals are excellent, well shown and served. The Grill is a comfortable venue with good lighting and not too noisy. The meal and the small extras- jalapeño corn bread muffins- are the high point of the event."

  • "Located in one New Orleans finest hotels, the Grill Room matches the hotel's elegance. No lunch martini specials, but cocktails are generous pours. The wine list is extensive and heavy on very expensive, high end. After finding two that seemed interesting and affordable for lunch, the manager gave me knowledgable advice. Her description of the wine was spot on. The sweet potato soup and gumbo were "pass around" worthy. The crab gratin was rich. Shrimp, grits and grillades and hanger steaks were delicious. Desserts were good. The Cafe Boulo service was delightfully showy and the perfect ending to our decadent luncheon. The staff was knowledgable, pleasant and efficient."

  • "Absolutely stunning food and service. A lovely room with nice spacing between the tables. Second floor windows look out at tree tops. A piano player was followed by a jazz trio. A haven of comfort and peace."

  • "The food was great - a 4 course tasting menu paired with wine. I had the duck for an entree and my husband the tenderloin - both were cooked perfectly. We will go back."

  • "It just doesn't get any better than the Grill Room. I have never experienced a more polished restaurant or more outstanding food on such a consistent basis. If you are on an ego trip and want to be seen at hectic Galatoires, go ahead. Good food there . Commander's is the epitome of a tourist experience but you will feel like they are waiting to turn your table. The Grill Room is just a totally different dining experience. For an intimate quiet dinner with the service staff doing everything possible to help you relax and encouraging you to linger and relax. Wine list is 5 star and if you go with special wine pairings with your meal you won't be disappointed at all. You definitely get more than your money's worth on that deal when offered."

  • "Food is good, service is good. However, it was 30% off for the hotel's anniversary, and the original bill came without the 30% discount. Server dropped it at the table and disappeared for over 30 minutes. Finally flagged her down, explained it was missing 30% off, and it took another 15 minutes to get it back. Service was otherwise great, just ended badly. The food is great, but really very overpriced for what it is. We've been going there for years, and the old menu had a much better selection."

  • "The Grill Room at the Windsor Court was recommended to me and the food more than lived up to my expectations. However, if you are looking to have any conversation with your dining partners be prepared to raise your voice. The piano playing and subsequent 3 piece group could provide background but the sound level on the night we were there drowned out any normal conversation. Service was very slow which was surprising as the dining room was less than full."

  • "Living on past reputation. Disorganized; server reeked of tobacco; neglected our drink order and then delivered wrong drink; sommalier very attentive and did his best to satisfy. Even for New Year's Eve and Sugar Bowl crowds, unfortunately there are much better restaurant choices in New Orleans."

  • "I took my husband to the Grill Room to celebrate his birthday. The food and ambiance of the restaurant is always outstanding. We were surprised to see a live band performing. The music was delightful but loud where we sat. It was hard to hear each other talking. We absolutely love the late night dining with entertainment but in a beautiful restaurant like the Grill Room we expected soft background music, something soothing to delight the pallet along with the food. All in all our experience was good and we look forward to our next seating at your restaurant."

  • "Menu is always innovative, extravagant and absolutely off the chart delicious. Commander's and Galatoire's have their attributes to be sure. But there is only one Grill Room. If you want to be treated like a tourist and hurried along with a pseudo smile and have good food - Commander's is an excellent place to go. If you want to see and be seen in a raucous and clanging environment ("Happy Birthday to you!" for the 3rd time during a typical meal) or you want to view "wanna be" plastic surgeried, trophy wives Galatoire's has outstanding food to go along with great martinis. BUT there is only one Grill Room. You will never feel rushed in any shape, way, manner or form at the Grill Room.... never."

  • "Need a place that has wonderful food, a beautiful room and service that is impeccable? The Grill Room is your choice. The entire table (requirement) had the tasting menu and it was a wonderful choice. Each dish was better than the last one , the portions being generous, and the ideas in the food were inventive. Service was attentive but not overbearing. The comments as the food arrived or the wine was poured from the servers was helpful and added to the experience. This whole package was in a room that can only be described as elegant and old-school. The Grill Room is certainly first-tier and a place where the entire table was pleased to experience and will visit again...and again...."

  • "Overall an excellent experience. Only one drawback: I was a single for dinner and was seated right behind the piano on an open plateau, or at least it felt like it. No spilling my wine and picking the incorrect utensil as I felt in the spotlight."
