Creole
Located in New Orleans’ bustling Warehouse District, Annunciation Restaurant features modern Creole & Southern cuisine. Housed in a lovingly restored turn of the century warehouse, the restaurant combines traditional design with modern touches.
Annunciation Restaurant is the ideal spot for celebrating a special occasion, entertaining a group of important clients, or just looking to unwind after a hectic day at work with skillfully crafted cocktails, fine wines and an assortment of classic and contemporary Cajun and Creole dishes. Creative dishes include crispy oysters with spinach and brie; sweetbreads with grits and marsala; Veal Annunciation with House made pasta with alfredo. 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

One of New Orleans restaurants that still gives out bread at no charge. Best oysters Rockefeller and godchaux salads around. A must try. Great service and cocktails. Just go and experience it.

Horrible service. Our waiter played on her phone the entire time. We had to pour our own wine and send my filet back. Not sure how you over season and burn a filet. Our appetizers were cold and bland. Bad start and even worse finish. After speaking to the manager he did nothing to correct the situation. We will never be back!

First dinner out since the city reopened, service was beyond exceptional. Everyone made us feel very comfortable. The cocktails were outstanding, Tom Collins and Sidecars. I do think the roasted oysters had too much boudin and cayenne pepper. The fried oysters with Brie and spinach were perfect! The soft shell crab Monica was one of the best we every had. The Pompano and crab in brown butter is one of the best dishes in the city. We will be back!

Top notch dining experience! Wasn’t sure what to expect as it was my first time in a restaurant since lockdown but Annunciation did not disappoint! Highlights were the gumbo and drum dish and my old fashioned was on point. Full menu was being offered too. Looking forward to a return trip!

The food was amazing but we were unimpressed with the service and with our table location. We were seated in the middle of the walkway and right by the door so the server was frustrated every time he had to come to our table and he and other customers bumped us constantly while walking around our table. There could have been some reconfiguration to avoid this issue. The server was also pretty snippy with us the entire night, which is not something I have experienced before.

The place was ok but nothing special. We enjoy the Chicken and dumpling appetizer very much, but the main courses were quite disappointed. Stuffed Eggplant was recommended as their signature dish and it was just ordinary. My colleague had shrimp pasta which was not that good. Then the bill came my old fashion was $18 because the waiter asked what bourbon I would like and I said please have the bartender recommend for me. Any the food was so disappointing and overall, i would never go back!

René always provides excellent service. The fish, the drum, was way too salty. I would have sent it back but that ruins everyone's meal. Otherwise, everyone else enjoyed their meal.

Upstairs is quiet if you went that or if you want action stay downstairs. Great wine list, terrific cuisine, terrific service (Kevin was our waiter and he is great). Going back again tonight two days later.

Very cool ambiance and great service to boot! Started with the oyster artichoke soup and it just got better from there. My dining partner ordered the Trout and I had the Drum dish. Both were outstanding. Great wine selection too! Definitely a hit and we will be back.

Bathrooms are horrific. Table was a metal saucer that the plates felt like they would slide off as we had 7. All they had to do was put two tables together instead of this makeshift joke. Waiter acted drunk. Appetizers were not impressive. Only thing good here was the entree’s

Props to the host that night who made sure we were seated comfortably, complimented our first round of drinks, and even called a cab for us to go back to the hotel. He went above and beyond! The food was amazing. The oyster and artichoke soup was delicious, the Veal Anunciation was perfect, and the blue cheese dressing on our salad was the best I’ve ever had. I could not give this restaurant a more ringing endorsement!!

I had the steak and pomme frites. The steak was overdone and poorly seasoned. The pomme frites were soggy and dripping with cooking oil. I expected better food.
