Cafe Degas is one of our favorite places! It has superb food and lovely ambiance. It’s like a little trip to Paris. The quiche is always delicious!
Had to wait 20 minutes, but at least there were benches outside for the elderly people in the party.
Bloody Mary -AMAZING. French Onion Soup-fabulous! Hangar steak-not all pieces were cooked medium-some overcooked, and veggies were underdone & underseasoned, such as the big chunks of carrots. Entrees were not hot whatsoever, and became cool quickly- not fun for the Eggs Benedict.
Crem Brûlée- stupendous! Overall lovely experience though, and server was great!
The ongoing hurricane weather has led to shrinkage. Everything was great as usual but two dishes were about half of their usual volume. Otherwise, staff and taste were up to the standards degas have made for themselves.
Everyone was very nice and helpful. The vichyssoise was amazing as always and both lobster and crab salads was nice and light. My mom’s English muffins did come out burnt initially (not a little to scrape off but totally blackened). We informed the waiter, and a new plate was quickly brought to replace it. We always enjoy dining with Cafe Degas and will return again soon.
Cafe Degas is one of our absolute favorites! It’s delicious and consistent quality!
nice breeze flowing through the restaurant and a relaxing, enjoyable dinner ensued.
the bayou st. john and martini began the small plate dominated fare crisply. the always sublime escargots and vichyssoise along with the french onion soup were perfect choices for the reduced menu offerings. something i hadn't seen before at CD was the poached lobster tail. frankly the best example of this relatively bland effort was the nicely shaved asparagus and carrot garnishings. the larger preparation was the veal dish paneed with a delicious sauce and greens. the shrimp and mushroom ravioli were done in a wonton paper wrapping and were the top dish this night. we finished with one of the better lemon ice box pies around.
the beauty of cafe degas is that each experience there reminds you of the reasons that you love to go out to dinner
Such a comfortable place to go for high quality French cuisine.
Subpar service. Decent food but nothing stunning. Comfortable outdoor tables. Crab cheesecake was best thing in the meal. French onion soup was worst part.
We absolutely love Cafe Degas.. one of our go - to places for special occasions or „just because“. This was the first time we were deeply disappointed with the service we received. Albeit pleasant, our waiter was not attentive in the least. The food was awesome ( as always) but the awful service made us forgo a second drink and desert.
My daughter and I walked in, were seen and ignored for maybe five minutes. People were helped who came in after us first, still not greeted sitting on the chairs in the front. Finally get a waiters attention and am taken to a table and left for a good amount of time without taking a drink order. The waitress was short and disappeared for good bits of time. Our appetizers were placed in front of us and she left immediately although we were ready to order. The French onion soup was scalding the entire meal and was watery. The quiche was bland and the hangar steak was just ok ... the mojito was good. $78 wasn’t worth the meal or service. Cute restaurant but never brunch again.
Solid classic French bistro fare
Always a great experience, food is delicious and the ambiance is relaxing. Very reasonable.
great for a date night, we had a very nice time as always!
Always a delight. Consistent quality. I would recommend certainly.
Long time fan of Cafe Degas I was concerned about what we would find mid-pandemic. Other than a reduced menu (no skimping on deserts though!) It had variety and many of the old stand bys and favorites. Our waiter was most enjoyable, the food delicious and a good time was had by all.
Great server & food was on par with the excellent service
Celebrated my birthday with my little family. Such a perfect evening!
Lovely! Beautiful ambiance & delicious food!
It was a very pleasant dinner. Social distancing was adhered to.
Can’t believe it took me this long to finally get to this jewel. Wonderful total experience. Food was uniquely delicious . Great date night venue. Will be back soon.
Food was just so-so despite high Mark's from Frommers. I had the flash fried oysters and it wasnt tasty. My husband had the amberjack and while it was not bad, it wasnt spectacular. Not what we are expecting at this price point.
Awesome service and yummy fish and wine
Every aspect of our visit to Cafe Degas was outstanding, the food was superb, the staff was friendly and helpful. This is definitely the place to go for a lovely meal.
Wonderful service and tables were spaced properly apart.
Cafe Degas came highly recommended and did not disappoint. Not only is the French Creole food impeccable, this is hands down the most romantic restaurant I have ever visited in New Orleans. Date night central, peeps. When in NOLA and seeking to score points with the SO, TAKE THEM HERE. (mike drop)
Great ambiance and fantastic food. I would highly reccomend to friends.
So hard to decide what to order. Everything so well prepared. Thought we were in Paris!
Great Eperience! All of the staff was respectful of COVID-19 mandates. Excellent social distancing yet no compromise of service!!!
Our waiter was terrific and the outdoor table was perfect. The food as always delicious.
Some items don’t seem to be as good is they once were. Is that me or the chef? I’m unsure. Still overall a pleasant meal.
Food, ambience and service were all excellent! This will be a regular stop.
In spite of covid issues, nothing is compromised here.
Everything was amazing, as it always is. Our server (tall redheaded guy, related to the bartender I believe) was exceptional, particularly paying attention to the little normally unnoticeables that elevate an experience from great to truly special. His humble passion for the industry is evident, and very much appreciated. C'est bon! Merci. Thank you. Billy & GiGi.
One of the finest meals I’ve had in New Orleans. Quiet and out of the way, a gem in mid city.
We enjoyed our Coolinary meal even though they had to replace the appetizer. Very delicious and we look forward to our next visit there!
Worst I’ve ever had there. Usually love this place. Food was just not up to par today.
We were a little bummed to have to wait 15 min, despite our reservation. But, we were able to have a drink while we waited. Food was great, except the oyster entre, which was nothing more than a fried oyster salad. The veal was fabulous. Our server was wonderful.
Specifically went for soft shelll crab special. Called restaurant 45 minutes before arrival to confirm they had it, and was told yes. Got to restaurant and they did not have it. Became apparent that they are instructed to lie to customers when they call about this special, to get them in the door. The usual poor service here
