Food was terrific and restaurant is very nice , birthday celebration was good
Jade and Taylor amazing
Their beignets were way better than Cafe Du Monde and the service was great. Highly recommend the "Benedict of the Day".
Perfect fine dining experience at excellent prices. Food was outstanding!!!
Noise level in the restaurant was a lot louder than anticipated. There was a live band a singer belting away on the other end of the space. Thankfully we were able to be seated on the other end.
Beautiful hotel. Ordered a veggie omelette was a huge pile of veggies with an egg white on top. Fruit tasted canned. Coffee wasn’t memorable along with service.
Great service impeded by mediocre food with so many great options everywhere in town
Food was awful. Caesar salad was straight from refrigerator and wilted. Parmesan crust was also cold from refrigerator and .hard and inedible. Crab and fried green tomato redfish was horrible. Where was the crab? Or the fried green tomato? The pasta and fish was extremely sweet. Couldn’t eat this either. Very strange taste experience. Hostess came to table after we sent salad back and claimed the salad was made to order. No way! I’m so disappointed, we had only one night to dine and made a terrible choice in this city of fine dining choices. Never again
Great restaurant with excellent food and innovative cocktails! We loved the atmosphere, and our server Fernando was incredibly attentive and friendly!
The food was fantastic and Fernando was an impeccable waiter. He made wonderful suggestions for our meal that added to our dining experience.
The food was great, but the Coolinaire menu was not available without any statement in website or in visible signs.
Our best dining experience during our New Orleans trip! We were disappointed that they did not offer the Coolinary dinner as advertised because they “ran out of ingredients”, but it was a great meal otherwise.
A feast for the soul. One of the most satisfying dining experiences I’ve ever been fortunate enough to enjoy.
We celebrated my husband’s retirement. We had outstanding service! We will return whenever we’re in town
Just perfect. It was my 20 year anniversary and everything was perfect.
Excellent service and food. We loved everything!
I was HIGHLY impressed with this restaurant! The food, ambiance, the staff. Everything was superb! My husband and I were in New Orleans to celebrate our anniversary. I don't know why we picked this restaurant, but I am so glad we did.
Best meal in New Orleans, perfect service and delicious food.
Three of the four of us were happy with our food. My husband ordered lamb chops, medium. They came out medium rare. After the waiter brought them back from the kitchen to cook them “a little more”, they were so over cooked they were charred black. My husband was so insulted and irritated that he sent them back uneaten. Everyone else was well into their meal and he didn’t want us to have to wait for the kitchen to prepare another dish for him. He left still hungry.
Food was average.
We have being there at the carousel bar for drinks and bar food and everything was outstanding so we decided to go there for dinner and the food wasn’t up to standards. It was very disappointing wish I had went to Mr. B’s instead!
Made reservations for my birthday; food was delicious, service was good. Will go back.
I greatly enjoyed the breakfast sandwich it was warm and tasty and I thought that there were variety of options. I enjoyed it the maître d’ seating us very quickly. I do wish our waitress could’ve got our check to us faster we were on a time frame. Overall great work
James our server was friendly and knowledgeable.
Excellent food, great service, great ambience. We will be back!
Our server Colin was the best in business and Roy was excellent at keeping our refreshments filled and both guys made sure we were well taken care of.
Wonderful food and great service! We will certainly return.
Good meal. Great atmosphere and excellent service from James.
Nice lunch for my last day in NOLA. Came for the gluten free options. They did not disappoint. Cocktails were tasty too. Quiet upscale ambience w/ open kitchen was cool.
Ate breakfast with my son for his birthday. The food and service was excellent. We live in Metairie so will definitely be back 😀
The service was excellent the appetizers, drinks and dessert were also. The entrees left something to be desired. The entree sides were gross. I had the sword fish and the rice that came with it was yuck. He had the stuffed red fish and the stuffing was yuck and bland too. We were really disappointed that we asked for a private table and were seated at the bench booth in between two other couples when there were private tables open around us our entire meal. No couple wants to sit at a bench booth you can’t talk to each other. You almost hit elbows with the people next to you...It kind of ruined it.
In town for a conference and staying at the Hotel Monteleone. Ate here several days for breakfast and all were excellent. Try their biscuits and gravy.
Our experience at the restaurant was amazing !!! We were celebrating our 25th anniversary and they surprised us with the most intriguing delicious dessert! The service was Impeccable! Our entrees were ones to always savor. We enjoyed everything about our experience and will always remember our special wedding anniversary! Our gratitude to the whole staff!
Excellent meal and wine, excellent service. Very relaxing and peaceful. Noise from the bar was in the distance and did not disturb us. We stayed in the hotel and enjoyed dinner “in” vs fighting with tourists for a table elsewhere. Highly recommend!!
The place is nice and service was great. Food was ok, well prepared but nothing special. We, however, were there there for lunch and it might not represent the dinner experience one might have.
What a delightful surprise finding this restaurant in a gorgeous hotel and bar! Dinner was excellent, the service superior. Go there for sure!
We enjoyed our breakfast. It was very filling.
Beautiful venue and pleasant service. Our waiters assistant from Henduras really made the visit worth while. We will come back just for his hospitality! Thank you kind sir.
Shrimp, blue crab, and avocado stack is a nice starter, American snapper was cooked to perfection.
