We had a deliciously prepared meal. I had the Lamb and my friend had the Red Fish entree. Our server was wonderful. We had been there once before a few years ago. I'm gld we went back. It was a nice experience.
An excellent night all around. The service, the food, and the atmosphere were just right. A nice, cozy place. Not too loud. The service was friendly, sharp, and not overbearing. The owner works the room herself and she is a delight. The food was excellent. I had a hard time deciding what to order. I'll definitely be back to try some of the other items on the menu.
The rack of lamb with chicory coffee sauce was delicious as well as the Chambord duck! Great atmosphere and service!!
The grouper with tumeric crab sauce was outstanding as well as the French onion soup! Ali is an amazing server and bartender. He made two delicious cognac Sazerac for us!! I'm a little shocked though there was only a couple tables tonight but we will definitely be back!
Beautiful little gem! We ordered the redfish with shrimp ettoufee sauce as well as the French onion soup that our server recommended, and we were surely not disappointed. Our waiter was such a nice and caring person. It's a very beautiful place for a date. Will be back!!
What a beautiful atmosphere as well as the French Onion Soup. Will return!
With very few restaurants open on Christmas Day we made reservations at the Flaming Torch. This is a delightful French restaurant with authentic French food and ambience. The service was adequate despite the fact that our waiter was covering a lot of tables single-handedly. Both our duck and fish were carefully prepared and delicious. The ambience upstairs (where we ate) was perfect for a romantic evening. Good value, too. Note: the restaurant is a good 15 minutes drive from the center of NO, in a quiet neighborhood, so it's not like you can walk from Bourbon Street. I would definitely go back.
It was the holiday menu, maybe they just were thrown off by not cooking their usual fare... but it was pretty bad.
We had the ABSOLUTE best french onion soup ever! Better than anywhere we had in France. The rest of our meals were fabulous as well......I think we all ordered something different. The owner herself took the time to recognize my 60th birthday and make the evening special! She and her family are lovely! We will definitely be back again.....a hidden gem off Magazine St.
The duck breast and lamb chops were ok, but average. I did not think it was up to the the ratings I had heard. One odd thing, the waiter asked how we wanted the duck breast cooked: rare, etc. Have never heard that questions when ordering fowl.
Thanksgiving dinner - starting to become a tradition for us at Flaming Torch. A truly lovely evening. As usual.
I've been here for an early Thanksgiving dinner for several years in a row, and it never disappoints. It's small, quaint, with a great ambiance. We appreciate them being open and providing a great family-run meal for our adult groups!
Wonderful restaurant, food, and delightful owner/staff. Will happily go back when we're in New Orleans again! Thank you for showing us your art! xoxo
The chef was apparently off that night and the owner cooked. The food was inedible. Our waiter was new and not trained. Our waiter informed the owner about our complaints but she did not ever come to our table although she did spend most of the night talking to the only other occupied table in the restaurant. After wasting $345 we went down the street and ate a proper dinner with much better food from an award winning chef and at a lesser price. I see no reason to ever go back when there are much better restaurants nearby!
Awesome place for some delicious mussels and New York strip steak! The service was on point and the drinks were amazing. Thank you for a great experience. I'll be back!
I came here on a date, and it was superb! The ambience was great as well as both the food and service. We ordered the redfish with crawfish cream sauce, and it was so divine. Will return!
The Flaming Torch is one of our favorite restaurants. As Francophile food lovers, we feel gratified when we dine here. The plates are beautiful, the cuisine authentically French, the service attentive. The selection at the bar is limited, and occasionally menu items aren't available.
Super food and super service!!! No complaints at all!!
Everything was great but there was a table of 20 that probably demanded more attention so we were a little slowed by that but it would not deter me from going back.
I really enjoyed this place. Good was excellent!!!!! Great waiter.
