About Café Adelaide at Loews New Orleans Hotel
Acclaimed by local and regional food writers as one of the best New Orleans Restaurants, Cafe Adelaide is a favorite of local residents as well as visitors. Modern Creole Cuisine featuring seafood and farm fresh ingredients is the cornerstone to "eating, drinking, and carrying on" at this Commander's Palace Family Restaurant. Cafe Adelaide is led by Executive Chef Meg Bickford.
The Swizzle Stick Bar is a nod to the Brennans' beloved aunt, Adelaide Brennan, whose joie de vivre and charming pursuit of the good life is captured in the decor and design. Named for the gold swizzle stick that Adelaide wore around her neck, this fun watering hole is getting a lot of attention reviving classic cocktails.

Café Adelaide at Loews New Orleans Hotel Ratings and Reviews
We are always open to adding a new restaurant experience every time we visit New Orleans. Café Adelaide was a first for us and being a Commanders Palace influenced restaurant we were not disappointed. Our entire meal was exceptional. Located next to Harra’s casino in the Loews Hotel. It might be off the beaten track for the French Quarter crowd, but was well worth a short cab ride to experience an excellent meal with friendly and courteous staff.
Cafe Adelaide is a delightful restaurant! The wait staff made us feel welcome; they made appropriate food recommendations and made us feel at home. The food was delicious and reflected the creative talent of a Louisiana chef. As a matter of fact, at one point the chef came out of the kitchen and spoke to us. For dessert two in our party were served a hot fudge sundae which exceeded all expectations. Without hesitation we plan on returning to the restaurant!
If Cafe Adelaide is the sister restaurant to the Commander's Palace then it is the redheaded stepchild sister that never had a chance. We were sat in the back next to the hostess stand, our food took over an hour to come out and when it did the Grits were cold, there was no butter or jelly for the cold biscuit, I did not get an option for the temperature that I wanted my burger cooked, there was no bread, no bottled water like the other tables had and the waitress spilled half of the coffee onto the table with no offer to clean it up or provide additional napkins. Never again.
Cafe Adelaide might not pop up on the "best of" lists, but it's not trying to. It's simply a nice, casual restaurant in the Lowe's Hotel that offers very good food in a quiet atmosphere with pleasant attentive service. Our service was attentive, quick, and very friendly, and our food was exactly as described on the menu and very well presented and done. AND, at a very reasonable price.
It's also a great place to stop in and have a drink, without the penetrating noise of most bars in NOLA.
It's a nice "away from the madding crowd" place that I plan to return to on my next trip to NOLA.
Although in a hotel, this is not your typical hotel restaurant. In my opinion, this Brennan family establishment ranks right along side others they operate - such as Commander's Palace. The ambience is not as plush - no tablecloths except on the banquet seating tables - but the quality of quality of service and food ranks right up there. We selected it for this occasion as they were offering a special Restaurant Week menu providing 3 courses for only $39. - and the number of offerings was surprisingly large. The Eggs Roguaroux appetizer was tasty and enough for 2 to share. The entrees of seared black drum and a unique Veal Barbacoa Tamale were amazing. To finish off, the Creole Cream Cheesecake was light and the perfect ending of a great meal. I've also had brunch here on a number of occasions and find it among the best in New Orleans.
The appletini (martini) tasted like cough medicine, should have known that a 25 cent martini could not be good at that price. Had the shrimp corndog (tasso)- sounded great, was just ok. The other entree was mediocre. Service was very good. We would not go back.
Came to Sunday brunch for the August COOLinary menu and to celebrate an anniversary. Food was incredible and service was excellent! We'll definitely be returning and recommending to our friends. If you come for the hat-tinis, be warned - they are very strong.
Great food. Servers were mostly pleasant but made no effort to be more. Waiter placed the wrong food in front of the wrong person EVERY SINGLE COURSE. waitress kept trying to clear out plate when we were not done eating. She failed to bring a to go container when requested. And they would pot the wine then take the bottle off somewhere else. I found that strange and would have preferred the bottle left table side
But the food was really good. Just not the service one expects in New Orleans.
