New Orleans in its soul is a true blending of many cultures. The European influences, namely Spanish, Italian & French, coupled with prominent contributions of Caribbean & African heritage, have produced one of America's greatest indigenous cuisines, Creole.


Criollo, the Spanish word for Creole and the name chosen for the new restaurant, represents the amalgam of cultures reflected in our cooking and the unique tastes that comprise Louisiana cuisine.


Fashioned with Louisiana & the Gulf South region's abundant bounty of fresh, home grown products from the land & sea, Criollo's ingredient-driven seasonal menu is designed to offer creative dishes inspired by culinary traditions & an appreciation of today's contemporary tastes.

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 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.

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

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...

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

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.

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.

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!
