Our family favorite for a special celebration or just a great steak dinner. Our recent experience was both. Casual atmosphere belies the excellence of the kitchen and staff. Make sure to add the creamed spinach and lyonnaise potatoes to your delicious steak or salmon.

The steaks are a great size but the food is very bland. We ordered 2 T-Bone Steaks that were unseasoned, potatoes AuGratin that were very bland, Broccoli AuGratin that was ok once salt and pepper was added and Asparagus that was ok. When it was time to pack up to food to go we left everything except the steaks, we figured we could have seasoned them in a pan when they were ready to be reheated. Overall this was a complete waste of $130.00.

Delicious food, good service, friendly atmosphere. Side portions could be larger and dining room noise level was a tad high. Overall, the experience was very good and a great value.

Disappointed. Ordered 2 salads got one, had to request the second salad. Wife ordered a filet andf got a new york strip. I asked for a medium rare steak and got a medium, not a big deal but it wasn't what I ordered. Paid the bill and left... won't return.

Made a Valentine’s Day reservation for 12:00. All doors were locked. I called several times, but to no answer. I live in the Treme and was looking forward to supporting a local business. Very disappointed.

A nice outing for a group of working colleagues. Casual setting. Terrific service and nice menu. Good selections of steaks and sides. No option for a baked potato which was unfortunate. Steaks cooked perfectly which was super though missing the taste of grilled meat or wood smoke.

CCSTH is always my first choice whenever I have a craving for a great steak dinner. From ap's to coffee and dessert everything is tops. The wait staff is attentive and the ambiance is casual (except l don't really care for TV's in restaurants) and relaxing. I usually get the ribeye and my wife gets the Filet. In all the years we never had to send anything back. If you can't choose between the cheesecake or bread pudding, don't. Get both and share.

Well at first we went early and didn't get the booth I requested. Second. They say.us where.the waiters were constantly bumping into.my chair. And I.was so.annoyed I finally ask.if the booth we reserved was available. So we moved into it and had to ask.for.refills on tea. Had to ask.for.the same things I asked for.when I ordered in the beginning. I made.reservations and said I.was celebrating my birthday and when I was finished eating.i had to remind the waiter.tjat we were celebrating. .i though desert would.have been complimentary, but no they charged us

Was very taken a back from moment that we stepped into Crescent City Steak. From the rude hostess to the in attentive server it was a disappointment. The hostess was very dismissive. One would think that keeping customers happy or at least making an attempt to would be paramount considering the number of equal or better quality steakhouses that exist in New Orleans. But neither made even a veiled attempt.

I did expect more... my husband’s steak looked picture perfect on the outside but it was under cooked and chewy, mine didn’t even look like a filet mignon but it was fairly tasty but overcooked... I’d like to go back some day.... and our waitress was quite attentive.

Everything was excellent once Stephanie our waitress noticed us sitting there unattended for 15minutes. She wasn't supposed to be our waitress, but was the only one who seemed to take notice of us. We were about to walk out, and I do say, she was a very good waitress indeed! Thank you Stephanie for saving our date night!

Best steak we have ever eaten. My husband & son had the fillet and it was large compared to most steak places. I had the ribeye which was nicely marbled. Everything can to the table piping hot and our server was very nice & helpful.

I was extremely disappointed. Thought this was a neighborhood gem and if it is it is long gone. I am always disappointed when a steak house cannot cook a steak correctly and doesn’t offer to do it right. My husband ordered the most expensive cowboy ribeye in the menu and ordered it hot pink inside. It came out the first time rare. Sent it back and came back second time still dripping in blood. We actually took it back to out time share and nuked it! It was tough and stringy meat. Hardly above a low grade steak house.
Salads were nothing but bagged salad and a small serving. Maybe 3/4 cup. The au gratin potatoes were good but not much else
Service was poor unless you were a local. Sad and expensive experience

I took my sons and young (7 to 10 years) grandsons for the boys’ first steakhouse experience. It was perfect... Classic menu, great 20 ounce cowboy rib eyes with sides... The waitress was the perfect fit for our crew. We began a tradition that night. Expect we’ll need more rib eyes as the boys grow up...

Don’t worry about making reservations on opentable. They don’t honor them. Make sure to call ahead. Otherwise, the food is pretty good.

The waiter was just OK, but the wait staff under him was incredible and on the spot. They were really on top of everything.
My filet mignon was like butter. So enjoyable.
I had a great birthday dinner there.

Had a good meal at Crescent City Steak House. The service was terrific. Food was a very good value and good. My only complaint was that I had to add salt and pepper to my steak that is not something that I normally have to do when I am at a steak house. But the lack of seasoning on my my meal did not take away from the enjoyment of the meal just want to be honest in my review for future diners. The ambiance of the place other have complained it is dated, for me DON'T CHANGE A THING I love the feeling of this place.

A classic steak house experience. It has a semi-casual vibe. The service was really good--friendly and professional, not overly formal or too informal. The menu is simple--they do steaks. The steaks we had were actually perfect. The sides we had ( au gratin potatoes and spinach ) were respectable. We had a shrimp cocktail which was average--rather small shrimp, but the quality and flavor was spot on.

This place is a must stop in NOLA, the food is amazing the atmosphere is great, the southern hospitality here is top notch, the filet was cooked to perfection and so tender and juicy the knife fell though under its own weight, if you are in town you need to check this place out
