Tonight was horrible. Haven't been here in years and wanted to go tonight. Gathered 2 other couples and EVERYTHING that could go wrong.... did.

Was never offered bread for the table however watched as other tables were receiving bread before dinner. Drinks were slow as our waitress didn't offer very often.

Ok moving on. Ordered our food then noticed that other guest that arrived well after we did was being served their entrees.
When we asked about our food she apologized but said she doesn't know what's taking so long. One of my guest knew a manager he asked him about our food he stated it's second in line and it's coming. He had no answer as to why others were eating before us. So then the food FINALLY comes and it's sub par. Cold lobster tails etc.

Needless to say. We won't be back. Im very visible on open table and eat out weekly. I rarely leave negative reviews but this.... this needs attention.

We go to Crescent City fairly often. This time, it was after a Saints game. It's fun to go there after a Saints game, especially when the Saints win. Even though we lost, the energy in Crescent City was fairly high. The food was ok. The onion rings were a little undercooked and not salted at all. The steaks were good and at perfect temperature, but the side dishes were room-temperature cold for all 5 people in our party. I know it was busy, but that shouldn't happen. The service was lacking. It took forever to get a drink. One of our party ordered a glass of wine and by the time she got it, was half done with her meal. I realize that they are short-handed because of COVID and Ida, so they get a pass this time.

When we pulled in and parked, we were happy to see a security guard patrolling the parking lot. We walked in and waited several minutes before anyone came to greet us. The hostess did not see our reservation in the book. She asked if it was an Open Table reservation, which we confirmed. Then she found it pretty quickly, saying she wrote it down but wasn't sure where? So she sat us, but forgot to tell the server because we waited for over 15 minutes before the hostess came back by to ask if anyone had come to help us yet. The tables are fairly close meaning we got bumped into several times. They have private booths - which we requested - but since our reservation was overlooked, the booths were all full. We ordered iced teas, garlic bread, and caesar salads to begin. The garlic bread never came. The tea tasted old, so we ordered a coke instead. The salads were simple but good. We then ordered a filet and ribeye along with potatoes au gratin and sautéed asparagus. The ribeye was undercooked, otherwise the food was great. The steaks and potatoes were the highlight. The service was fine, except the missing garlic bread. We figured she just forgot it and the other food came pretty quickly, so we didn't mention it. The check came and we were charged for teas and the coke, as well as the garlic bread that never came. After letting her know about the missing bread, she apologized and took it off the ticket saying "oh that's too bad, the garlic bread goes great with the caesar salad!" 😑 Overall, the food is good and the service is ok. However, for those prices the food and service should be excellent and they just were not. Probably won't be back.

A New Orleans classic, Crescent City Steak House is among my favorite restaurants. The steaks are always cooked to perfection and the value is unmatched. It's a step back in time when you visit because Anthony and his family treat you like you are dining in the family kitchen. I highly recommend Crescent City.

we started with onion rings, because everyone should...
she had the cosmo and i had the manhattan, good bartenders here...
i had the t bone medium and my wife had the rib eye medium both were
sizzled perfection and purely delectable...
we shared the lyonnaise potatoes and shoestring as sides...they make tasty potatoes so many ways...hard to choose...
the tummy got all full, we had to get the cheesecake to go, what a breakfast treat that was....
the staff is friendly and helpful, but remember this is new orleans, don't get in a hurry, you'll just get indigestion...
take it easy....🙃⚜🥃

The waitress was very nice so I tipped her well. The steaks were not to great. I wasn’t to happy with the food nor the lady who was basically trying to make me keep a tough steak I ordered for my niece. Tried it once and will not return.

As always the atmosphere was warm and inviting.
The staff friendly and efficient although based on the delays between the delivery of the appetizers and the entrees the kitchen was short staffed.

Started with the onion rings. A little bland. Breading not the best. Garlic bread was good.

The steaks were delayed for a long period of time but were delicious. Among the best you’ll ever eat
Especially the filet.

Try the German fries. They are excellent.

The most disappointing dinner in New Orleans. I swear, they reheated our meal with a microwave. Porterhouse should not have a funky taste. Our server was good, try to make things better, but you just can't fix bad preparation.
