Cocktails are equally impressive and include concoctions like The Devil’s Beating His Wife – white rum, ginger syrup, Stiegl Radler and grapefruit and a Blueberry Sazerac – a modern twist on the NOLA classic.

Good food with their new chef and service was excellent. We enjoyed creative cocktails. Shared three different oyster dishes. Best of group were the Oyster Rockefeller but others were good. Paneed gulf fish had a marvelous seasoning.

Worst service I have ever had. The waiter was out of his mind. He was so rude and made me feel bad for asking for season free fish. He took forever to bring drinks so much so we had to go to the bar and get them ourselves. He would mumble passive aggressive things under his breath when we asked for something. He slammed the burnt bread upside down wrapped in a linen where the bread touched the table and didn’t say a word and walked away. It was very odd behavior. There was a table that came in about 1.5 hours after we were sat and we still didn’t have our dinner.

Great spot that went above and beyond to serve us. We just got into town, they were closing (10pm) and still insisted that we could make reservations and order. Also the food was great. Highly recommended

Great meal! Only let down was that we were really looking for (and booked) outdoor seating...and while there were 2 tables outside...they were more or less on the sidewalk/in the street. We were easily able to get a table inside and had a lovely meal...but if you are booking this for a fun outdoor dining experience, I would advise you to go elsewhere. :)

Portions were way smaller than expected. Don’t order a salad as a meal....it’s tiny. Food was overpriced for what we got and the experience we were hoping for.

Food was just Ok. We had a really nice waiter and he provided excellent service. I am from NOLA and have had the good fortune to eat at many great restaurants. The food here was good but for the prices charged it needs to up its game. In NOLA it needs to be better than good especially at this price level.

The upstairs is a bit stark and lonely if you are there before 7. They tried to put us in the darkest corner and we were the only ones there at 6:50, we asked to move of course but it was so oddly barren. Def seat downstairs. Rene the waiter is great!

We were staying at a hotel in the Warehouse District and Annunciation was a close walk on a Sunday night. My husband has a shellfish allergy and wanted to ensure he would have choices at any restaurant in NOLA. Annunciation exceeded our expectations. Food was superb from the beet salad, chicken and sausage gumbo, drum fish entree to the banana foster bread pudding for dessert. Decent wine by the glass selection. Our server, Carlos, was professional and friendly. Restaurant and restrooms were clean. Would definitely recommend and return if in the area. One of our best meals on our 2 week road trip.

We had an impromptu date night this past Sunday and they had open tables, so we went there (hadn't been in years). Great choice. The tables are spread very far apart and they seem to take social distancing seriously. The staff was very friendly. The food is high quality and very fairly priced. The wine list is great. I'll definitely remember this place and will be back again soon.

Annunciation never disappoints. The food is wonderful and the service attentive. Sometimes it can get a bit loud with a boisterous table.... I guess that is true most places.

Annunciation has always been one of the most comfortably romantic restaurants we have visited. A true local classy place with a modern/historic ambiance, lively entry and bar seating. Our server Carlos was a true gentleman and the bartender Garroway an overall pleasure and never-ending smile. We always look forward to going.

Had a solid meal. Expected more from the fried oyster w/ spinach and cheese app. The goute salad(shrimp, crawfish and crab) dish was REALLY good.. The drum yuvonne entree w/ potatoes was great. Crawfish monica with soft shell crab was average(nothing like crawfish monica at Jazz fest). OVERALL great atmosphere, decent meal, good to try, but have more great food elsewhere.
