Arrived at reservation time and had no wait for our table, although the restaurant was busy! Dinner was perfect - my filet was the best steak I've had since I can remember. This was a really nice post-Thanksgiving treat! Delicious!

One of my favorite places in the city. Food is out of this world, service is good but typical laid back NOLA so you must have a few cocktails and lots of patience! Great casual atmosphere is so charming...doesn't match the high quality of the food so it is an unexpected treat all around.

The review instructions are to keep it short, simple, and specific, so...

In my opinion, this is the best steakhouse in the city. You can't beat it.

Loved the filet. However the shoestring French fries were just thin fries, not shoestring and the mushrooms had no flavor.

We adore Crescent City Steaks. The service is personal and professional and the atmosphere -- the decor from the 40s-50s, quite charming.

Nice family atmosphere. Efficient service. Good food and reasonable service for a neighborhood steak house. You do need to order sides with your meal

Crescent City is our favorite steakhouse, providing outstanding food, drinks, and service. Our favorite meal is the filet, but we also love the ribeye and lobster, as well as the craft cocktails. We were there to celebrate my birthday and have celebrated other special occasions there.

The Caesar salad was delicious. The steaks and potatoes were outstanding. The spinach au gratin was a disappointment. Tasted like steamed spinach with a half a slice of American cheese melted on top.

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.
