I loved it. Rich Collins and his beautiful wife are so kind and sweet. And the music was awesome. The waiter was kind and very helpful. Along with being handsome, witty and knowledgeable.
Hi Donna! Thanks for the 5 star review! We will share your kind words with the staff. Please come back soon!
Our server Mike was awesome! Friendly, knowledgeable, everything! The hostess (didnt catch her name) was also wonderful. This place was outstanding. Friendliest place in NOLA.
Hi, thanks for the 5 star review! So glad Mike took care of you. Please come back soon.
Top shelf service and hospitality
Thanks Shelby! Glad to know you had a great time! Please come back soon.
The service is really second to none. Great food, but the ambiance is amazing. Highly recommend

The stunning deco itself, is worth a return visit !!!
Hi Annie, thanks for the 5 star review! We are so happy you enjoyed your visit with us. We have shared your comments with our team. Please come back soon.
Had a reservation for 7pm. When we arrived we were told they were full and it would probably be 15 to 20 minutes and we could have a drink at the bar while we waited. After 30 minutes started looking for hostess who was no where to be found. Finally gave up at 8 and ended up snacking in lounge. Would never attempt restaurant again since they didn’t seem to care about us at all.
My wife and I could not have been more pleased with our experience there. Mikelle was very patient with me over the phone as she guided me through the process of purchasing concert tickets, Foundation Room dining, and VIP access. She treated us like royalty the whole time we were there and made our experience a memory we won't forget. Mikelle and staff were on top of things during Tab's performance as well. A concert goer standing behind me was hovering over my shoulder filming the event with her camera phone. Mikelle and another staff member noticed this from a distance and swung into action - in a very discreet and respectful manner. My wife and I appreciate Mikelle and the staff who run the House of Blues. We have spread to the word to our friends about this place and our experience. Hang on to Mikelle... she's a winner. We will be back!
p.s. Only wish we could have had Tab Benoit sign our the concert poster :)
Hi Mr. Kaelin, thank you so much for this review! We appreciate your kind words regarding Mikelle and we have to agree, she is AWESOME! We have shared your review with her and her team. Please come back soon to another show!
I was in NOLA for work and brought my spouse along. We booked this spot because it was a 1,000 table. We loved the food. The cocktails were interesting and pretty good. The service was friendly but slow. The ambiance is also interesting in a very good way. I highly recommend this spot...but expect to be there a couple hours or more.
Hi, thanks so much for the 5 star review and kind words regarding your visit. We appreciate your comments and have shared them with the team. Please come back and see us again.
Michael the. Server was awesome! Made the experience! Great food, different atmosphere and great service! Made you feel as you were the only ones in there!
Hi Leelee, thanks for the review and kind words! Please come back soon.
It was my girlfriends birthday and I wanted to take her someplace where she felt like she was taken care of. I was amazed at the quality of service that we received. First off you got this sense of exclusivity when you walk in and you’re greeted by a host that directs you to a private elevator that’s only for the restaurant. My girlfriend was so surprised that they took the time to work with her on the menu because of her food allergies. The wait staff was incredible. Working in the restaurant industry myself, you look for people to be accommodating and giving you great customer service and they exceeded that. We will definitely be going back and bringing others.
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. We will be back soon
I was skeptical but other reviews assuaged my concerns. Ugh! Food was mediocre at best. Service was outright bad. Though the server was nice, he was incompetent. Food was served cold, drinks were forgotten, bread was forgotten , efforts to deal with a food allergy completely failed. Then, the food itself was generally tasteless and boring.
The ambiance is cool but with so many great restaurants in NOLA, skip this one.
Service was amazing! Food was amazing! Killer experience.
Fantastic all around from specialty drinks to food to ambience.
Awesome service, ambience and food! Great place for drinks or dinner, with or without a band playing. A gem in NOLA.
We had a very special meal here! Beginning with the greeting, the special elevator, greeting upstairs (by first name, no less) with a glass of champagne. Very romantic and special place. Very good food!
This was an unexpected find and we will definitely go here again! The food was amazing and portions quite large. Two of us got Rack of Lamb, served over black-eye peas with a wonderful gravy, and perfectly cooked to medium rare. But the best dish was the Fried Green Tomatoes covered in Crab and a mustard sauce. It was AMAZING. The dining room is very small so make a reservation!!
Awesome meal and phenomenal wait staff
This was an OT find. I have been to the House of Blues in a few cities. Always think the food is s step above the typical tourist restaurant. This special room was very cool. Had the feel of a private club. Separate entertainment. Service and food were on point. Hope I make it back.
This is a great place to have dinner, listen to live music, and have a truly unique New Orleans experience.
Mike was great
This place is just over the top unique. I have visited NOLA probably 30 times in 6 years and never found this place. GREAT for a date night or even for a bunch of friends. If you want an intimate dinner - ask for a booth - it even has curtains that close! Excellent service, wonderful food and ambiance you won't find anywhere else.
Amazing! The small restaurant with chamber atmosphere. Food is high quality. I strongly recommend this restaurant for couples not for big companies.
It was absolutely amazing, from the decor to the staff and food. Perfect for a date with a special someone, if a date request a booth. The staff was great and very detailed and thorough. Will definitely be back again
Fantastic great service. Food was excellent. Best atmosphere in New Orleans.
Excelente experiencia. Buena comida y ambiente agradable
Had a great time. Saw the Blues Travelers in the VIP section.
We had an amazing time at this best hidden secret in the French Quarter! The service was beyond pampered! We were treated like royalty even though we clearly are not. From the extensive bar options (yes, even my husband's favorite craft beer), everyone can find their special drink. The atmosphere is what sets this place apart. From the hand sewn fabrics on the wall to the special artifacts, it is like dining in the most exclusive home. The high quality food leaves options for every palate. Listening to live music while you wine and dine is the BEST! We will certainly make the Foundation Room a "must do" for each trip to the Big Easy!! Highly recommend!!!
The ambiance was great and everyone was friendly. The food was on point.
Wonderful dinner and exceptional service, especially Isaac and Nicole!
We decided to eat in the VIP lounge instead and it was a terrific experience. The menu was one of small plates which was just what we wanted. The service was excellent. The ambiance amazing.
Overall a pretty good experience. Service was very good but not what I’d expect from this sort of a fine dining venue. The steak was great. The fish was a little on the fishy side. Appetizers were great.
Unique decor and specialty menu. Service was outstanding.
Girls night out before Steven Marley concert. Dinner was absolutely delicious! Split lots of things and everything was spot on! Waiters were super helpful, drinks were healthy and the Foundation wristbands allowed us some extras that made the concert enjoyed even more. All this in the middle of Mardi Gras!
We are locals and I can’t wait to go back!
The food was very good and portions enormous. The crab cake appetizer could have had a bit more crab, but the topping was delicious and overall, it was great. Osso Bucco was done perfectly as well. The best thing however, was the service. Every time I have been here, I feel like an insider.
The food was very uninspired at best. Charcuterie board was grocery store quality. Fried green tomato app was bland and over cooked though presented beautifully. I love to see Bibb lettuce in a salad, but the “champagne “Vinaigrette seemed nothing but a squirt of brown deli mustard. The crab cake was just unrecognizable in taste. Very large but tasted more like a salad patty, if their was such a thing. The shrimp entree was the best item, hence three stars and not 2. Very fresh with a tasty white cream sauce. The 2 steaks had to be returned for proper cooking, once brought, they were again grocery store quality food but nothing more.
We came here for our Day dinner. I live here in the city and I must say, why have I not been here before last Friday! From the door greeter down, host, bartender, wait staff and chef made this experience amazing! But I have to speak on a certain employee. Mike our waiter was top notch! He took us through the entire menu, spoke on, found our likes and delivered a wonderful experience for the night. His wait staff was very top notch and done their job well! I deffinately will be back with in a month and make this one of our places we love to eat regularly in the city. Hats off to the entire staff for making our Day date night amazing one!
If you are looking for the best music, atmosphere, service, and dining experience, this place is hard to beat anywhere. Britney and Isaac made our Valentines night extra special. After great music and dining experience in the Foundation Room, we enjoyed the Whiskey Myers concert downstairs at the House of Blues. Thank you for being the best at what you do!
The room was great, the food was delicious, and the service was very personable and efficient. We will definitely make another visit the next time we are in NOLA.
The food was absolutely delicious-including garlic soup, fried green tomatoes, arugula salad. Isaac, our waiter was really great. Unfortunately we sat in the room with the dome and had another party with a very loud guest or two which was a little much for even our conversation.
