Creative dishes include crispy oysters with spinach and brie and 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.

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.
Check it out if you haven't enjoyed Annunciation yet

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.

Annunciation has amazingly delicious food and my wife and I loved the atmosphere. If you ever go ask for Carlos. He is not only an attentive waiter but was able to answer all of my pregnant wife’s questions about the menu. Definitely recommend this place

We were greeted by 2 hosts who seemed unsure where to put us. We asked for a warm table and were seated upstairs in the middle of the room beside the double doors. The server was inexperienced and had no idea about what she was selling or food in general. There was an irritating upsell attempt to add crab to everything, which I'm not impressed by. Drinks took a bit to get out and they couldn't find the bottle of red wine we ordered. Warm bread arrived with unsalted butter which tasted like it had been uncovered in a fridge for a while. The 2 appetizers we ordered just tasted watery, the crab and avocado salad and the beet salad. We finished apps and nothing was cleared when the entrees came. My wife ordered the drum Yvonne but was served a totally different dish, the fish special instead? I ordered the steak medium rare and it came out charred, tough and stringy. The server arrived after the food was dropped but we still had no silverware to eat the food which was now getting cold. I ended up cancelling my 2nd steak as my wife was finished. The best part was the 2 deserts, the pot de creme and the creme brulee. The creme brulee is just vanilla creme brulee with sliced banana on top and almost brulee'd sugar, that too is annoying because it's sold as a banana pudding creme brulee, no-hint of banana pudding and the sugar should be caramelized on top. There was also no management presence at all. It was an absolute disaster and I won't be back. Save your money and go elsewhere.

I had the duck entrée and it was perfectly cooked. Very hard to get good duck anywhere. Renee the waiter was very good even though he was the only one there. This place only had four tables at night on a Thursday night. Please support this restaurant and all of the restaurants in New Orleans. The locals have to step up since there are no tourists.

It's hard to review a restaurant during COVID but here goes.. the fried green tomatoes' appetizer had a delicious flavor but the tomatoes were hard in places; my caesar salad was very good-I especially enjoyed the chopped salad effect. My NY strip was excellent, cooked perfectly, just a tad too salty for my taste and I did not care for the over abundance of french fries or pommes frites. The duck was flavorful but a little on the dry side and again, too much wild rice on the plate for a side.
The chocolate pot de creme was AMAZING!!! I can only assume its size was compensated by its richness. I will definitely go back after all of this mess is over. I love this restaurant, its space and ambiance. I have been before COVID & it is definitely one of my favorites!!!
