Service was great and food was delicious! We really enjoyed our evening.
We were excited to try an authentic creole restaurant and we were impressed by the atmosphere and service. The food was underwhelming and there were a significant amount of items on the menu which they were out of, most notably coffee which we found extremely odd.
We were visiting from out of town, but not sure I would recommend with so many other options available
The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Our waiter was very attentive, and the manager even came to our table to sing Happy Birthday to my husband. We had a wonderful evening, and will definitely return.
Food was fabulous and the service was spectacular. Staff was very friendly and professional. Will definitely be back
Really enjoyed our dinner... A caramel mousse with salt was brought to the table for my friends birthday and was the best dessert ever... Don't know what it was called, but I will definitely go back for more...
We really want to love this place. Nice people pretty room but the food is not up to expectations. The pompano was served over very undercooked potatoes and the shrimp remoulade dressing was much too sweet. Shrimp etouffee was better suited for a Morrison's cafeteria. They can do better PLEASE
They were so rude to us for my birthday and didn’t even bring a cake when asked. Did not do anything special and was just very very poor service and mediocre food
Celebration for my cousin earning her masters. Good drinks, food and service.
Great place in the Warehouse District with very attentive service and pleasant ambiance. Food is diverse and fresh with excellent preparation. A New Orleans can’t miss.
The restaurant was not full but our dinner took an hour to arrive after ordering. That was the only negative. The wait staff was friendly and attentive, the food was very good for all in our party.
The food was awesome! We started with oysters rockefeller and bienville combo. Very old school NOLA style, but I really enjoyed it. For the entree, I had the eggplant stuffed with crab and shrimp. The eggplant was lightly fried which provided a nice textural contrast. It was rich and decadent and worth every yummy calorie. My husband had the seared drum with crimini mushrooms and brabant potatoes. I had plate envy! For dessert we had the banana bread pudding. I'll admit, this wasn't my fav. I'm just not a fan of dense bread puddings, but my husband loved it! Lastly service was fantastic!! Our server was accommodating, respectful of my limited time and knew the menu well. We will be back soon.
The food was delicious, the atmosphere nice, staff friendly, drinks where great!
We had a wonderful waiter and could actually hear one another, something rare at many restaurants.
Oyster artichoke soup was fantastic and oyster Brie app was lovely. Tuna was exceptional. The second main course, the shrimp etouffe, dropped the food score. Needed a bit of acid to brighten flavors and a bit of work on presentation. It had been sitting and sauce had skinned. The wine we selected was great. The comp champagne to begin was an excellent touch and matched our appetizers well. Atmosphere was fantastic and service was attentive. Don’t say this often... we’ll be back . Nice evening. Thankyou, Annunciation !
Outstanding. The pompano was delicious as the oysters bienville . The lemon icebox pie great.
The side car and wife’s wine were very good.
Service staff deserved a good tip.
Really like this restaurant!!!
We booked a table for 6 for 7pm. Arriving at the restaurant 10 minutes early, our table wasn't ready until 7:15pm. After being seated, we ordered drinks and an appetizer in a reasonable amount of time. They arrived promptly. The appetizers and drinks were both quite good. We then ordered main courses, at some point before 8pm. And then we waited. And waited. And waited. The waiter came by once with more bread. Then he told us ours was the next out of the kitchen. Guess what? The next out of the kitchen went to a different table. So, we waited some more. Then we asked what was going on and he said that our food was being plated. 15 minutes went by, and... no food. The food finally arrived around 9pm and just wasn't that good. They offered to "make it up to us" by giving us dessert, but we instead asked for them to comp us some items. They credited off 70 bucks worth of drinks, so that was positive. But, rest assured, next time we're in NOLA, we won't be making a the trek to this restaurant.
Neno was our waiter and was very professional. Great food and a convenient location.
From the moment we arrived the staff couldn’t do enough for us. The place is a converted warehouse; done very nicely. Lamp lit outside, clean cut within, and airy but in no way “cold”. A really nice bar for pre-dinner cocktails and then a nicely sized dining room with maybe 12 tables (there is more seating upstairs for groups I believe).
The menu was intriguing and the food, once we’d made our choice, absolutely sublime; both in terms of presentation and quality (the yellow-fin tuna and rice will have me back sooner rather than later)! A great wine list topped everything off nicely.
If I am asked “where?”, for an evening of NOLA fine dining (and a welcome change from the boisterousness of the French Quarter), my answer right now is easy... ANNUNCIATION!
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.
Awesome experience at Annunciation. Great food, service, ambience. Our second time was as memorable as the first; would go back again.
I have seen the restaurant many times as I ride around the city. It wasn't until a waiter at another restaurant suggested we try Annunciation. I'm so glad he did. I cannot wait to go back. I suggest beginning with the baked oysters or chicken and dumpling. My friends and I tried several entrees: pasta primavera (ask for the grilled shrimp , grilled fish and yellowfin tuna were all exceptional.
First time at Annunciation. Had heard mixed reviews, but was pleasantly surprised. Our server was very attentive. I got the tuna my date got the fresh catch which was drum. Both were very good. Had good looking appetizers, but all were fried. May want to look at adding 1 or 2 that aren’t fried.
Arrived at restaurant only to find it closed! Very disappointed as I had booked this reservation for a business dinner. Found ourselves walking around trying to find another restaurant that wasn’t booked.
Second time to dine at Annunciation since discovering this gem of a restaurant while visiting New Orleans. Outstanding menu complimented with great mixed drinks. Great ambiance all combined to make this restaurant worth returning to.
One of my regular spots in NOLA (a local). Good food (oysters/Brie, steak, shrimp, veal, lemon ice box pie), good service and typically a moderately busy yet cozy spot.
We love this place. Wish we could rate this 6 stars. Amazing food and exceptional service. The small touches only add to perfection. 5 years and still strong.
It was a Sunday night so I don't know what it's like at busiest times but it was a very good experience. I would go back
Disappointing food. Overuse of mayo. Slow service.
Great service . Food was good but with so many phenomenal options in New Orleans, not sure I'd recommend this one.
Had a wonderful time. Brouget clients in and Carlos took really good care of us. Food was delightful!! Thanks
Pleasantly surprised by this restaurant that is near the convention center. Excellent Veal Annunciation!
