A word from The Mansion at Nottoway Plantation
LOUISIANA FRESH CUISINE ... CREOLE-INSPIRED! Once the basement of a lavish sugar cane plantation home, the Mansion Restaurant at Nottoway was brought to life with the multi-million dollar renovation of the entire property completed in 2009. The bar’s unique shape follows the curve of the coachman’s niche, where the original depression glass windows are still intact. The main dining room leads out to the glass rotunda, where a breathtaking view of century-old live oak trees fill the signature landscape of the 30 acre property. In this historic setting, diners are intrigued by our Southern cuisine, prepared with fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients, plus fresh herbs from the chefs’ own garden. Entrees include Crab & Brie Bisque, Grouper Louisiana, Blackened Redfish, St. Louis Ribs, Shrimp & Grits, and the Cowboy Ribeye.

The Mansion at Nottoway Plantation reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Absolutely wonderful!
    HappyTravelers
    Dined on 9/19/2013
    We absolutely loved the restaurant at Nottoway Plantation! Everywhere you look is beautiful... the staff was extremely nice and helpful... and then the food came! It was cooked exactly the way we asked and was wonderful! The cuts of meat were the best and everything tasted fresh and was well seasoned! Very generous portions! We could not have been happier! Breakfast the next morning was just as appealing! There were dishes on the menu that were native to the area and the buffet was fresh and kept! We cannot wait to go back and dine there again!

    But the service was not, had to wait quite a while to get a drink, two wines on the list were not available, and the server had to go find the nightly specials. The food made up for it, never had fresher fish and the salads were very attractive

    The restaurant at Nottoway has greatly improved their menu and level of service since my visit two years ago. The setting is lovely. If you are lucky enough to have dinner at sundown you will have a remarkable setting for dinner. The menu is Southern but not typical. Each of my party of 3 praised the chef's creations. Special callouts for the excellent turtle soup (recently added to the menu) and for the double cut pork chop glazed with an apple sugar cane sauce and roasted sweet potatoes. The pork chop dinner was sweet and excellent! I would be remiss if I didn't mention the rosemary ciabatta bread with sugar cane butter that preceded dinner - yum! If you find yourself touring the River Road plantations make reservations for dinner.

    This restaurant has everything it needs to be a favorite for special occasions, but there were some issues with the food. Menu descriptions are not thorough enough on some dishes and our waiter was unable to answer our questions about entrees on the menu. Our food was a little bit of a let down. It is a very special place and I would go back just for the beauty of it, but hopefully would have better luck with my menu choices.

    The quality of the food and service are second to none. The staff were helpful and friendly. The staff were also knowledgable in regards to the history surrounding the house. It was truly a memorable experience and I am now a loyal patron as I will dine at The Mansion for all of our special occasions and business luncheons. The menu was priced very reasonably as well.

    I brought a group of friends for a girls day out. The atmosphere was so relaxing. We could feel the stress roll off of our shoulders. The food was beyond our expections. It was so flavorful and beautiful. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone wanting a short escape from everyday life or for an extended special occasion getaway.

    Dined on 7/18/2013
    We really enjoyed our meal at The Mansion. However, there was one major problem. We ordered a bottle of wine. After waiting quite a while, our soup arrived before the wine. The server said he would check on it. After about 15 minutes it still had not arrived. Finally the manager (I think) came with the wine in a cooler. However, he said we could not drink it for 10 minutes because it was not cool. After 10 minutes it still was not cool. The manager finally came and said to pick a bottle of wine and that it would be complimentary. We were full from the early soup, so we only ordered a glass. I'm not sure why we were just not told the wine was a problem early on. We would have happily selected another. It put a damper on our dinner.

Now factor in the grounds, and the fact that you're having dinner at Nottoway. Well I can't wait to go back.

    Went to Nottaway to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Never did I expect to find a resturanton par with New Orlean' finests.The chef staff is exceptional. Stayed in a a cabin that was well appointed and very comfortable.There are plenty of party rooms away from the cabins that were put to good use. GREAT WEEKEND! Only problem is finding room for desert. The last evening we ordered only appetizers to make sure we had room for desert. Every dish was exceptional. The Crab and Brie Bisque will be found on the tables in Heaven. Then there is the Bananas Foster Cheesecake and Miss Sharon's White Chocolate Bread Pudding. I rate this experience among the best of our travels acorss the Americas and Europe.

    My sisters and I traveled with our elderly mother from Florida to Louisiana to visit my mother's sisters and brother. We wanted to visit a plantation, and Nottoway fit the bill perfectly. We were able to enjoy a fabulous lunch in a beautiful dining room before taking a tour of the wonderful plantation home. The food was fantastic! Our server was great - willing and able to make the substitutions we wanted so that we all got exactly what we wanted. The dining room was lovely! And we were very surprised by how reasonably priced the entire menu was. The food was so great that we would have expected to pay a lot more. We were pleased with our entire experience!!

    The dinner at Nottoway Plantation was the perfect end to a day of touring southern plantations. The dinner and food were excellent. I was lucky to be seated in the glass-enclosed veranda room. There was a spectacular lightning storm with thunder and heavy rain during my dinner that added to the ambience. Fortunately I was staying that night in the plantation house (highly recommended) and didn't have to drive anywhere during the storm. I had their breakfast buffet the next morning and found it to be a great value - a very complete southern breakfast buffet at a very reasonable price.

    We absolutely loved this place. Had a groupd of six for my daughter's graduation luncheon. My parents have traveled the world over, and even they were impressed. Loved the variety of both standard and locally based items on the menu--none disappointed. The crab cakes, cornbread, Cochon au last, shrimp and grits....even the side salad was fresh and had a wonderful vinaigrette. No room to try the desserts-sad! Then the gardens! Amazing! I have much to say to promote this place.....if they need part time marketing director I'm their gal! Only 35 min from Baton Rouge and an easy drive through quirky Brusly and Plaquemine--fun to drive through. Highly recommend Nottoway and we will be back next year when she graduates from grad school!

    Enjoyed doing the tour then eating there in the house. Only issue was the slow service. At bar we were the only guests and it took like 10mins to get drinks.Then the staff meeting at end of bar made us uncomfortable. Got bread and water right away at table but sat there for like 15mins with no drinks,that's when I got up and got my own wine list.Then our server came & asked how everything was so far,I was like"the bread and water is lovely but a drink would be nice" we were the ONLY table inside the restaurant, 2 others on the patio.I had to ask twice for music to be turned on bc all I could hear was the staff joking and talking.All was good after we got our bottle of wine & music.The grouper and BI ribeye was good and prices are great!

    Absolutely lovely Sunday Brunch. Food delicious! The Fried Green Tomatoes to die for; the Crabcake Benedict perfect, and cheesecake yummy! Generous portions, enjoyed my "doggy box" later. Atmosphere/environment makes one feel transported back in time, yet able to revel in modern day conviences! We are so lucky to have two such incredible historical gems in such close proximity; St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Plaquemine, and Nottaway a few miles down the river!
