Daily special egg benedict special. Need I say more? Wonderful food and incredible service!! Q made my 86 year old father feel like "king for a day" on his birthday. Truly a special place!!
We were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. This was our first visit to NOLA. We had read reviews and checked menus. We could not get reservations at a big name resturant which was our first choice. This was our second choice, and boy are we glad it worked out the way it did. The food, the atmosphere, the staff, everything was perfect. Could not have asked for a better experience.
Thank you Criollo!
The service was prompt and responsive. The food was average. The gumbo needed better seasoning/flavor and my entree was lukewarm. The fixed the entree issue but why was that even an issue to begin with. Stuffed shrimp entree was better after sent back
Very Very Loud in Restaurant. Menu was not good at all.
Quality of the food was excellent, and service was as well. We had the shrimp, crab, and avocado stack apetizer (inventive and tasty), and the filet with shrimp and scallop for entree, bread pudding for dessert. Steaks were cooked correctly, it was a great evening
Our server, Ina, was fantastic! The staff made sure that my request for Prosecco was ready as soon as we were seated. The food was delicious - service was spot on. Made our anniversary celebration a happy one!
The food was delicious but the noise level from the adjacent bar was outrageously loud. A couple privacy screens were useless. We would have walked out to eat elsewhere if we didn’t have to meet others after our dinner.
The Criollo is a beautiful restaurant in a landmark hotel. The service was excellent, but the food did not live up to the expectation. The snapper was overdone and dry. My husband had the stuffed red fish and the dish was too sweet for his taste but cooked well. We will stick to the lovely bar area next time and continue to enjoy the hotel.
Had a great time! Food and service were awesome! We will be back!!!
Lovely atmosphere and good service. The food was very nice but we thought it was slightly overpriced however the cost seemed normal when comparing to similar places in America.
Enjoyed dinner here over Mardi Gras. It was my friend's birthday and they were kind enough to bring her a dessert. The food was good, but not good enough to justify the price. Ambiance is nice, but we were left at the hostess stand for ten minutes or so before someone finally came to seat us.
Food was sub par. I ordered the redfish and the presentation was terrible. The cheese on top was hardened and the meal was not hot when received
Had a great meal and experience
The 3 Shrimp on my stuffed shrimp meal were extremely over-done. We picked this place because of the reviews, but I’m now wondering if they are just living off the name of the hotel...
Very good food and drinks! They were out of a sparkling wine I wanted, but the food and ambiance was AMAZING!
We had brunch here and I wish we had the chance to have a dinner as well. Brunch was well done with nice variety. Service was excellent.
Gumbo, crab and avocado stack and the Pimm’s cup were excellent!
Great, fresh food!
Decent place. The portions are tasty but small and expensive. So if you aren't too hungry and have cash to burn then go here!
The redfish was old, the shrimp were like rubber and the chef seemed to be annoyed with our presence.
Overpriced, and with so many other options, I won’t be back
Trip to New Orleans
Breakfast here is worth the price!
The daily benedict is fantastic. Especially thursday w/ shrimp&crab fritter under perfect poached eggs.
If beignets are your thing, Criollo’s are actually better than Cafe du Monde; not quite as big but more delicate, more ‘french’, and the dipping sauce with strawberries makes them unsurpassed.
Nothing beats the ambiance of this lovely hotel decor. A true vacation spot with a restaurant that compliments the hotel’s fine quality.
Our Christmas dinner! Every thing we had from appetizer through dessert was outstanding!
Great waiter- awesome food
Great food and service will return.
We had breakfast 2 days on a weekend.The food and the service were great.The mimosas were also very good.
Fair (at best) service. Had to ask and wait a while for a coffee refill. Fruit plate ordered for before our breakfast came out after. Food was good and it was a beautiful setting.
Expensive, but for a special dinner, worth it. Great food and atmosphere. Service was fantastic.
Great brunch spot!
Great food and atmosphere
This was easily the most delicious meal I have had in New Orleans. I had stuffed shrimp over risotto...it was sublime. The Sazeracs were fantastic. My dining partner had the filet with fingerling potatoes and asparagus. She was swooning! The wine was delicious and the service was impeccable. Beautiful dining space!
Great food and service . Lots of great menu choices. Will definitely go back.
Bar, live music and hand-crafted cocktails were great. Service was fine. The meal was disappointing. Quality of meal was not commensurate with price.
Very handsome dining room, in a beautiful hotel.
The Creole Redfish was excellent, good service and ambiance.
The food was excellent. It was prepared exactly as ordered. However, I have been to many fine restaurants. The one thing that made this dining experience truly memorable was the outstanding and friendly service provided by our waitress, Ina.
Great place to enjoy New Orleans cuisine. Friendly service and excellent food
Waiter started out engaged but then basically threw the food at us the rest of the night. Will never go back.
An excellent experience. Perfectly cooked and displayed. Lots of shellfish of course, but plenty of other options. Bar is very lively.
Fabian and Ina made our event memorable, and considering the food, that was a tough bar to rise above!
Dined with friends from England and Ireland and wanted them to have a unique NOLA food experience. They later told me this meal was the highlight of their trip!
