Selection and pricing were good for this restaurant in the iconic hotel. Breakfast steak could have been a better quality but it was cooked perfectly to order. The beignets are the best I’ve had in the city! The service was impeccable!

The oysters Rockefeller were a fine version, and so was the stuffed red snapper. Do not expect "cutting edge" here, but if you want traditional NOLA cuisine well executed you can't go wrong at Criollo. Mike's service was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. His wine recommendation was outstanding.

Omy if this had been our first visit we would have never come back. First let me say the restaurant wasn’t busy. The service mediocre at best and the food ugh. We will be back because previous experiences were excellent. It troublesome when you bring business acquaintances and get this experience. We always stay at the Monteleone and this was our only disappointment!

This is one of those restaurants that may not get the patronage it deserves because some people avoid restaurants that are in hotels. I have been to dozens of restaurants in New Orleans through the years and Crillo is on my A-list. The food is terrific.

We went for dinner and the food was not very good. I had swordfish and my wife had a bake shrimp dish. Hers wasn’t that bad but mine was not good at all. The noise from the bar in the hotel made having a conversation almost impossible. The wait staff were very good

This was the worst and most expensive meal we had on our entire trip to New Orleans. The waiter was unfriendly and only came to our table twice; once when we got there and once to take our order. The appetizers were fine, but two of the entrees we received were inedible. There was no one around to let know and we had to get the busboy to track down our check. I would not go back and would recommend avoiding completely, especially when there are so many other great restaurants to experience and enjoy.

We booked at the last minute and were so happy to get an early dinner reservation. The service was outstanding (kudos to Arles and to Ina). The drinks were perfectly made to our specification. And, the food was superb - especially the crab cake, Caesar salad, and the bread pudding (best ever).

It was a decent meal. The avocado toast was small and dry and the omelette was basic. The chicken and biscuit was decent and was the best meal of our entire group.

Criollo is a famous location worth trying as a place to say you have been. The service was mediocre and the food unmemorable. Not sorry we went but probably won't return on future visits.

Very nice lunch before attending the matinee at the Saenger. Puffed seafood pastry was very good, the Louie salad was OK. The shrimp needed a little something; however, the salad dressing was very good. The only complaint would be the timing of the entrees'. We were enjoying pre-lunch drinks and our entrees' came out, quickly right after we ordered. We would have preferred they were served a little closer to the end of our drinks. Other than that, we would dine there again.
