Food was good. Service staff was inexperienced but nice. The had to remake one of our salads three times because the vegetarian asked for no ceaser dressing. I couldn’t get a drink refill without waiving someone down. Overall mediocre experience for a local. The 3 course special for 19.20 is a great gimmick but I wouldn’t go for a special occasion like we did but maybe stumble in on a late nite in FQ. 99 years, locals beware!

Of the classic old New Orleans restaurants, Broussard's is at the top of the list, and summer is a great time to visit. The ambience, food and service are outstanding as always, and the summer specials make this an extraordinary value. Absolutely not to be missed.

The service could have been better. Our cocktail and dessert waiter didn’t check with us very often. He kind of had an attitude in the end. The main waiter was very good though.

This was by the far the worst dining experience I’ve ever had. I had a group of 10 people for my birthday dinner. Most of us had never been to New Orleans before so it was a very special trip for us all. We wanted one night where we could enjoy a nice dinner. There were 2 servers helping us. We didn’t realize that one was only for drinks and the other was responsible for food orders. So when we ordered drinks with one server, she took it down but failed to mention that she never put it in or told the other server. So 30 mins later we ordered w the other server.

The food came out about 1.5 hours later but incorrect. Not only were we not even hungry at that point, but no server wanted to even come near the table because they knew we were not happy. The manager and chef tried to come out to make it better with a bottle of wine and a plate of dessert (which no one ate by the way becauSe we didn’t ask for it) oh and the dessert that we did order that was suppose to come with a couple of the guests meals never came back because oh, the servers didn’t want to stop by our table.

For being a fine dining restaurant I was very disappointed and would have rather eaten at a drive thru chick til a.

This was probably one of the best meals of my life. I've never tasted dessert so perfectly made, food was just spectacular, and their cocktails were outstanding. Just absolute perfection. Not a single complaint and would recommend their 1920s menu to anyone visiting New Orleans.

We came in to an almost empty dining room on a rainy weeknight. The environment was upscale & elegant, waiters were polite & friendly. Some of the food was delicious (crab cake!), some was so-so, & very over-salted. Drinks were top-notch, but service (despite being allotted 2 servers, plus the lack of other diners) was inattentive. Our drinks order was forgotten -twice- & we waited over a half hour for our dessert. (Which arrived with a mostly melted scoop of ice cream, while the cake was still refrigerator-cold, & stiff.)
We wondered if the discrepancy was because we’d ordered their 1920s prix fix special; 3 courses for $20, though with the appetizer & drinks we added, the bill still topped $100... We did enjoy our night, but would probably only return for drinks.

When walking into Broussard's, my husband and I were first extremely concerned that we weren't dressed well for the occasion. We had arrived dressy casual and there wasn't an issue at all, from the moment we got there we were introduced to our team of servers and within the first fifteen minutes one of the managers came by and introduced himself. We enjoyed our own 4 course meal that was so wonderful and we left smiling. Overall it was a wonderful place to eat with an amazing history. Definitely will come back when we are in New Orleans again!

Ambiance was a little depressing because the dining room, while pretty, was almost empty during 8pm dinner service. Bartender was good but dining staff disorganized. Check came before dessert service. Ran out of sterno for bananas foster and a replacement sterno could not be found. The waitress offered us the ice cream in the bottom of the otherwise empty bowls, but no comp.
