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

The waiter was obnoxious (trying to be funny), but was not. The food was below a zero. One of the dinners was so salty, it was not edible. The owner came by and we mentioned it to him, and he did say that chef got a bit overzealous with the spices. We got our check. Despite that one of us did not eat, they still charged us the full amount for the dinner.
There are so many nice places to eat - make a wise choice.
It was expensive, and not worth a dime of it.
I might have written a better review had we not been charged for the 'bad' dinner, but I can't.
We were even told that the 'breading' before frying was very light. NOT! The chef must have learned how to bread soft shell crabs and sweetbreads from KFC - thick and tasteless!

The duck was great as usual. Service was impeccable.Wine was very good for a house wine available by the glass. The menu is fairly broad, the sweetbread app is also a usual for me.
We tried the pork shoulder, and it was fork tender and well seasoned. I highly recommend for a nice evening.

Dinner was so delicious!!! Every single course was something to rave about. The Pomme Frites and Hashbrown Brussel Sprouts were highlights for my toddler. Beet Salad and The Drum Special were AMAZING!!! My dad really enjoyed the ambiance and reminisced of old days in that building...a new memory if a wonderful Father's Day was added that day.

Good selection of appetizers, entrees, and great desserts.
Friendly, attentive waitstaff.
If I was not from NOLA and knew the quality of food available in this city, I would say it was very good. But the food was not anything special, given the great food I've eaten here. For example, I had the soft-shell crab Monica, which was as rich and creamy as any Crawfish Monica I've eaten, but the soft-shell crab was not as good as one I had eaten recently at a lower-priced restaurant. My table mates, felt the same way about their food.
Ambiance was nice, and the other guests seemed to be enjoying their conversations and the service.

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!

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!
