Chateau Du Lac Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Me and my boyfriend went here for New Years Eve. They had decorated the tables with party hats and poppers which was really cute and for the restaurant being so busy, service was great and our waiter was very attentive. I had the filet and my boyfriend had the duck. Everything was cooked perfectly, but you may want to bring a packet of salt with you for your visit here. Everything was incredibly under seasoned and my boyfriends "glaze" that was paired with his duck had broken down to a light sauce at best. All in all, we enjoyed our experience and plan to be coming back!
I downgraded the food in this review as they had a special menu. I ordered a shrimp and avacado salad; the shrimp were very small and had a distinctly metallic taste. The mild avacado dressing could not hide the foul taste. The fillet was excellent. I missed the opportunity to get the french onion soup as it was not on the menu. Desserts were quite small. for 2 people with 2 glasses of wine and 2 beer with tip my tab was $220.00
The food was very overpriced. You could pay the same and experience a great meal at Commander's Palace.
The food was mediocre. Our appetizer looked like a pot pie from the freezer section. It also arrived to the table cold.
The patrons were all senior citizens. I was probably the youngest in there and I'm in my mid 30s. Our waiter however was very nice.
Superb dining experience.
True French cuisine...delicate flavors...fish cooked to perfection...really a favorite restaurant in New Orleans which is known for excellent dining choices.
I've eaten here several times and always come away totally impressed, smiling and satisfied!
We went there for Christmas Eve and the food was excellent. The special menu had a good number of options and it really reminded us of the French cuisine we have for Christmas at home. The tables are a bit too close to each other to enable the waiters to circulate with discretion but it didn't change the fact that we had a perfect Christmas night.
Disappointed. Dined here many times, but restaurant clearly should not have accepted reservations for the few tables that it was not using for a private party of some 48 or so in its main room. Staff was focused on the party and lunch just was not what it usually is.
The food is amazing! We had two appetizers to share - Foie Gras is wonderful but also plated beautifully. Also we had a shrimp, artichoke & Spanish dish in a delicious tomato basil sauce. For our entrées - Coq au Vin, Boeuf Bourguignon and Scallops served over a light Beurre Bkanc All dishes were superb and authentically french except the Pommes Frites, which are usually a puffed twice fried potato, these were just regular French fries.
The best true French restaurant in New Orleans, not Creole as most in Louisiana expect. Chef is from Britany. Fantastic duck mouse for appetizer. Fish dishes with great sauces. Hanger steak with a blue cheese sauce was also very good. Romantic small place and excellent wait staff who know and love the food.
The food was Fabulous and the service was the best. Ron our server knew I was a bit under the weather and even offered to make a hot water with lemon and honey for me--- not on the menu of course. Just being nice. We will definitely be back----- Thanks Ron!
The charcuterie platter alone was enough to make me come back to Chateau Du Lac ! The cheeses , curried meats and pate with champagne was the perfect way to start our dinner . The butternut squash soup was so yummy and the hanger steak was cooked to perfection !
There are a lot of restaurants in and around New Orleans that claim to be " French Cuisine " . Chateau Du Lac is authentic " French Cuisine " prepared by Chef/ Owner Jacques Saleun from France . Walking into his restaurant is like stepping into a Parisian Cafe !
Have been a number of times, for both lunch and dinner. Like to sit at one of the tables in the bar area. Authentic French food, well prepared and served. Nice wine list and choice of cocktails. Convenient parking across the street. Pleasant atmosphere. Highly recommend.
The online menu was different than what is on the website. When I arrived, I was told the entrée that I was looking forward to eating was not available. Since I drove out of the city (N.O.) just to get away from the French Quarter, I was quite disappointed.
Chateau du Lac is one of our very favorite New Orleans restaurants and we go there every time we are in town. Thursday night was wonderful as usual but for some reason there appeared to be only one waitress for the entire restaurant. While she was pleasant and efficient she certainly could have used some help.
