Fantastic as always. One of the best in New Orleans
We dined at Compere Lapin with another couple for lunch on Friday May 18, 2018. It was our first visit. The decor was very well done. The drink selection was extensive and specialty drinks very creative. I could try a different one each time and be happy. The food was delicious, from the first to the second to the dessert. My entree was the goat curry with sweet potato gnocchi. I think I would choose it again and again. Our server couldn't have been more friendly, professional and enjoyable. I believe her name is Clair and she is a delight. We will be back.
Outstanding food. Good service. Great ambiance.
Very disappointing! So noisy that conversation was impossible --"energetic" doesn't begin to describe this noise. Food just interesting, not special. Restaurant was not extra-ordinary in any way ---- not classy, not anything one would expect for these prices. Servers were over-taxed, trying their best, but not trained ("are you still working on that" --we don't 'work on' our food). We are not snobs, but we want a special dining experience, when we read that the chef has won James Beard nomination and has prices to match. Tuna tartare was bland, much-touted goat was so-so, with some very chewy pieces, pork tenderloin --and the food all three of us ordered--was severely over-salted. I am sorry, but this was our least favorite place to dine in our six-day stay. Advice to chef: get over your accolades and your uniqueness, and taste what is coming out of your kitchen
Very disappointing experience. Restaurant space abuts hotel bar so people tend to congregate close to the entryway, and noise level is high throughout the room. The food is actually quite good (pig ears, broiled shrimp, curry goat, soursop semifreddo). But service is the weakest link. I felt rushed, treated with condescension, and it was a constant uphill battle with service (are you sure you want to order a bottle of wine, I can’t leave the wine list here I need to return it to the front, are you sure you want to order small plates...). Service seems not entirely professional - one of the maitred’s pulled up a chair at the next table, sat down and started talking with the patrons (who seemed to be friends). No sommelier service to speak of. I would be very reluctant to return... rather choose Herbsaint.
Compère Lapin is of the best restaurants I have ever eaten at. The food was incredible.
An overall excellent experience. Can’t wait to return to try the other menu offerings. Our waiter was exceptional.
We had lovely, friendly service. I have been very disappointed with the attitude and level of service at local restaurants lately, but we very impressed with the service at Compere Lapin. This in addition to the wonderful food.
Great food and friendly service in a dark moody atmosphere. Loved the broiled shrimp, tuna tartare, biscuits, and goat curry. Fun experience.
One of the best meals we've had in a long time. Service and timing were genuine and spot on... We will be back.
Service was very good, the food was great and the drinks were excellent!!
Everything about this place is exceptional: food, service, atmosphere. It is easy to see that great care goes into every dish. Loved it!
Best brunch I've had yet!!!!
Bit slow to seat us but after that it was amazing. Server was great. Food was delicious. Staff was so friendly. What a nice experience.
Surprising menu. Lovely place. Wonderful food
Food was delicious. Our waiter was friendly & knowledgeable. We can’t wait to return.
we made lunch plans based on the James Beard award and were very pleased
Had a wonderful dining experience. Entrees are not overly large. Curry goat was a bit salty but food was superb overall. Loved the biscuit provided at beginning of meal.
We were so thrilled to experience chef Nina’s specialties. The curried goat was very complex and so delicious. The drum fish was also excellent!
Simply perfect food, great service and incredible wine list! Well deserved and earned James Beard award.
It was our anniversary and the staff really made an effort to make it special and recognize the occasion!!! Food was fantastic, service was great, we will go back!
The food here was amazing. We tried several items we've never had before, like conch fritters and goat. It was all very good and we highly recommend this restaurant.
Amazing food, a wonderful combination of creole and Caribbean flavors. The goat curry with sweet potato gnocchi was a standout.
Outstanding service and food - every dish was amazing (and we had the entire menu to share minus one dish amongst the 5 of us). No surprise that the restaurant was being awarded a James Beard prize while we were dining there. Absolutely a can’t miss choice in a town with many amazing places to dine.
Wow, we were blown away by our experience there . I understand that Compere Lapin is up for some kind of award, and I can certainly see why. It’s just a great restaurant, with menu items that are unique, as well as awesome. We’ll be back for sure...
Congrats on the James Beard Award.
We were late for our reservation by about an hour due to traffic from Baton Rouge, however were able to be seated without a problem. Thank you!! The entrees ordered were Goat Curry and Jerk Drum. The dishes were well prepared with excellent technique, flavors were clean, but subdued. I would be hard pressed to say the fish was Jerked if it had not been stated in the menu. The delight of the meal was the sweet potato Gnocchi in the curry. Wow, sweet, creamy, tender pillows of flavor. We will be back to explore the menu further along with a small container of fleur de sel. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. The only negative would be the noise level. Nina...congrats on your James Beard win!!!!!
Superb service, creative drinks, excellent food, and fun vibe at this Warehouse District stunner. Try the Copper Bunny if you’re thirsty for an inventive, delicious cocktail. All the main courses we sampled were outstanding, and the Soursop dessert was unique and refreshing.
Compère Lapin is a new fave.
The goat curry is absolutely one of the best entrees I have ever had anywhere. Wish the room didn’t feel like a hotel lobby ambiance doesn’t equal good
Other food excellent too but seriously have the goat
We had a great waitress (Minyon), who took us through each of the dishes and explained everything that we needed to know. Both the appetizers and dinners were great, but the portions were a bit on the small side. The only negative of our experience was the length of time between our apps being served and dinner coming out (1 hour), which was likely due to it being jazz fest.
Wonderful. Elegant. Staff solicitous. Food and drinks impeccable.
Excellent service, flavorful food. The oysters, pepper pot, jerk drom and curried Goat were all outrageously good. Make sure you try a few custom cocktails too.
Best we’re the roasted oysters. Cochon was good but not great. Many large parties brought noise level way too high.
Love the place, the food is excellent, the ambiance and the service
Magnificent food, great service, super loud dining room.
Absolutely delicious cocktail menus and food. Nice ambiance. Very clean. Nice simple menu.
We waited over an hour from when we ordered our food and still had not gotten it. The waitress avoided coming near our table despite us asking several staff members to have her come by because we wanted to pay for our drinks and leave. After 20 minutes of trying to get her to come over the manager then came by and didn’t even apologize for the wait and acted like that was normal to wait for your food over an hour after ordering. No apology, nothing done about it and we never even saw the waitress again. Walked out hungry. Don’t waste for time dealing with these people.
Food was delicious. Our server gave great recommendations as we were unfamiliar with the dishes.
