I usually eat at Annunciation at least once a year when in NOLA. It never disappoints, and this year was no exception. There’s a new chef and the menu is now more Creole than before, but dishes are still outstanding and everyone in our party was pleased. Richard, the maître d’, was fantastic, as always.
Good dining. Well executed. Service was adequate. We were satisfied with the experience.
Service was very poor. We had 8pm reservations and at 8:50pm we still hadn’t even placed our order. The food was average at best. Very disappointing
Food was very good but waiter was lost. Took starter order for only two of our party of six rather than entire party. Could not answer questions on wine. Talked too much while chewing gum. Removed starter plates, etc and started replacing silverware, etc and had not taken our dinner order although we had been there for well over an order. Did not apparently understand the order of service. Requested a sweet wine and brought us a fruity one but not sweet. After we rejected it and ordered more wine he told us he was told not to open any more wine at our table. We are hospitality professionals having opened and managed restaurants and hotels all over the country (Hyatt, Renaissance) as well as worked and trained for Disney for 20 years and never been treated this way. Maitre’ D had to finish our table.
Superb food and service. The mid-size menu provides a broad choice of fish, meat, fowl, and vegetarian entrees. For appetizers, the oysters with spinach and brie are excellent, as are the fried green tomatoes with shrimp and remoulade. The duck and the pan seared fish were perfectly prepared and presented. The bread and desserts, especially the butterscotch cream, are delicious. Our waiter was appropriately attentive and friendly without being irritating. I recommend Annunciation highly for any occasion.
We absolutely loved this restaurant!! It was probably our best meal of the entire trip to New Orleans! My husband and I split two appetizers, the fried chicken and dumplings and the fried oysters with Brie. They were both AMAZING!!! We then split the trout almandine for our entree and my husband said it’s the best he’s ever had. We will definitely be back! We are frequent visitors to New Orleans and this is one of our very favorite meals we’ve ever had there!
I live in the neighborhood and have dined there for years. The service and cuisine are always terrific. A hidden gem in a city known for its great dining.
Great new find in Nola. We thought Boudin Balls were very tasty and not heavy. Beet and Caesar salads excellent. Bread could have been better, not bad but not great. Tuna was outstanding. Will be back. Portions larger than expected but just perfect. Dillon our waiter was very knowledgeable and friendly.
Carlos was great waiter! Food was good. Loved the beet salad.
