Best Beignets!!! We went to Cafe Beignet super tasty and Cafe Du Monde which were okay, so trust me when I say Criollo has the Best Beignets!!! They were so light and flakey. The praline sauce was the perfect companion! Overall the restaurant was quaint with top notch service!
Where are the vegetables? The food was very good, But I did not expect to get just fish with nothing else. And no sides on the menu to rectify that. That seems odd to me. The advertised sauce on the fish is not what I got either. Was expecting more for the money.
Overall it was ok nothing over the top. Server was overwhelmed great suggestions but no follow up.
the NY WAS EXCELLENT my chix y biscuit too much biscuit little chicken needed heat.
I would come back and give it a second chance
Wonderful food and service! Best Pimms cup around!
Nice ambiance.. great beignets and chicken biscuit
Food a little overseasoned, the biscuits and gravy too garlicky. But the beignets with praline sauce were heavenly.
We really loved the overall experience. Our waitress was super sweet And very knowledgeable. The lagniappe beignet was to die for! That pecan sauce that they serve it with was delectable! Even though the limited menu that they serve on the weekends for brunch was not what we were expecting, what we ordered was very delicious. Anybody coming here for the food will not be disappointed.
Perfect breakfast, kind staff. We came here twice on a recent trip to NOLA
Service was okay, food was really good and ambiance was amazing. Definitely recommend.
Always consistent. Dishes are perfectly prepared. Sauces are on point. Waitstaff is fantastic. Management excellent.
This restaurant is amazing. The mussels and my eggs were fantastic. Peach Bellini was wonderful! Ask for Gina B as your server, she was lovely!
The service was poor. It took too long to get my food, took too long to get more coffee and my food was not correct when I did get it.
Not sure what the challenges are, but instead of the leaders standing around, they need to roll up their sleeves and help get orders taken and food made and taken out.
Great service. Great food
Service and food excellent!
Everything we had was quite good and since we were staying at the hotel very convenient. I highly recommend breakfast here! The Beignets were wonderful, prices were extremely reasonable and the service was always very good.
Food is always good here and the value is excellent. The beignets are simply the best in town!
I highly recommend the mussels. It's the best version of mussels I have had in the city of New Orleans!
Nice breakfast. Excellent service!
Love the food and the cocktails! The service was 100% wonderful . We had such a memorable and wonderful time. Can;t wait to go back
Excellent food and excellent value. Very good service.
Great lunch. Super deal with New Orleans Coolinary event.
We absolutely loved this birthday lunch experience. They gave us our own private dining room set for 14. The coolinary lunch is an amazing value and every dish was delicious! I went last year and it was my favorite coolinary so I booked a large party for my birthday lunch there. The fleur de Lis cocktail was amazing and refreshing and they do a great pimms
Cup as well. The strawberry salad and the corn and crab beignets were absolutely delicious and I loved my chicken entree and everyone who got the trout with the crawfish and shrimp raves about it. I got lucky and got to try both the chocolate mousse and the pear tart and they were both scrumptious. I loved the cinnamon gelato on the tart! They went the extra mile and decorated a happy birthday plate for me for dessert. Maria and her service team were amazing and the other server I think his name was Arles sang to me. It was so sweet. We really had a wonderful experience!
Food and service are always exceptional. I would definitely recommend
The coolinary lunch is the best value in the city!!!! Ladies dining here feel very pampered. The food is awesome and so is the waitstaff. Easy to park in the hotel.
Great lunch with 8 FQ friends. Food consistently wonderful, as well as service.
The Monteleone never disappoints. We had the eggs benedict which were perfectly prepared. The highlight of breakfast is their beignets which are served with strawberries and a praline sauce. These are unmatched anywhere else in NOLA. Gene, our server, was polite, friendly and service was prompt. We will definitely be returning.
Service was slow, but that’s the new normal due to shortage of employees.
Service was slow.............................................................................................................................
Excellent place to eat with perfect food and service
It was my birthday and the staff treated me like a princess as my tiara suggested. The food was excellent as always. The only thing that upset me was that I had called 4 days in a row to add people to my party and I only ever got a recording to leave a message and no one ever called me back. However, we were seated with my additional people without difficulty.
They made me feel like a Queen August 15th I enjoyed my birthday at Hotel Monteleone Criollo ⭐️
Had a hankering for Eggs Sardou this past Sunday. Hadn't been to Criollo in about a year. The dish was delicious. Hostess even let me take a peek at the Carousel Bar next door to the restaurant!
The food is amazing . The fish was delicious and the service is above par. The drinks are also first class .
If you're going to limit the lunch menu to the coolinary, you might want to tell people before they make reservations. We left.
We had a great a great breakfast here. While the menu is quite simple, there is an available option for all. Our group of four which varied in age from 9-42 year olds selected different plates and we were all satisfied with our entrees. The restaurant is settled in the old historic Monteleone Hotel in New Orleans. It’s a gem of a place, the staff was attentive and friendly. The food was on point and everything was perfect!
Fast service, great food! Convenient Carousel bar is adjacent.
Wonderful venue for brunch.
Great menus and food, gorgeous dining room.
Service could have been more attentive but we were not in a hurry and the food compensated in spades.
Their breakfast was delicious. When I made the reservation, I asked for a table by a window and they gave it to me. It was very good and the size of the servings was large (more than what I could eat.
Our waiter was so knowledgeable about our drink options. He was a pleasure to to talk with.
The food was delicious and was our champagne drink. We had such a great time, we went into the bar and we all got to have drinks and a ride. It was all our first at the bar, and great memories were hades we all can wait to do it again
