Three velvet-draped semi-private “Cheater’s Booths” and a private wine room offer additional venues for a special meal.

We went for Mother’s Day. All the food was delicious. Had small plate of seafood appetizers, salad, and salmon. The dessert platter was amazing and gave small sampling’s of their desserts. Staff very friendly and glad to be serving.

I called hotel in April to make Mother’s Day reservations. The clerk said reservations for brunch are made on Open Table. Made reservation, but when I arrived from out of town I was given a regular breakfast menu not brunch. Had to ask for jelly for toast, asked for cheese in eggs & saw little to no cheese. Very disappointing & mediocre food.

We let them know we had theater tickets when we made the reservation. Everything went smoothly and everyone enjoyed their meal. We were seated right next to the low wall separating the dining area from the club area so noise was a factor.

Located inside and on the third floor of the Ritz Carlton in downtown New Orleans. The hotel is beautiful and inviting. The restaurant is located just past a lounge where you can order a drink in a plush setting. The restaurant itself is in a large but intimate room just beyond the lounge. The service here is impeccable and the food is well prepared, fresh and hot. The “Taste of New Orleans” is a 3 course meal that includes seafood gumbo, blackened redfish and Banana’s Foster for dessert. This evening was a highlight of our New Orleans visit.

Skip the octopus. The tentacle served was enormous and tough. Service was spotty and often confused. You would expect more from a Ritz Carlton.

I accidentally stumbled upon this place. FYI it’s in the Ritz Carlton so don’t show up in sweats like me and my boss. Everyone here was very helpful and the customer service was great. I opted to do the brunch buffet and it was amazing . SO MUCH FOOD. I recommend this place!

We had dinner here on our first night in New Orleans. I had the short rib with farro and sweet potato salad and my husband had the gumbo appetizer and red fish with dirty rice entree that was part of the the prix fixe menu. Both were delicious. We topped our meals with the banana fosters bread pudding. Amazingly good without being too sweet. Since it was Friday evening at 9pm we were able to also enjoy the jazz music being played at the Davenport Lounge, which is attached to the restaurant. From the food to the service which was also excellent to the jazzy music and sophisticated (but not stuffy) atmosphere, it was a very enjoyable evening and a wonderful way to begin our weekend in New Orleans.

In New Orleans, most hotel restaurants are good enough to go to even if you are not staying at the hotel. M Bistro is one of them. We really like the food there and often go before attending a play downtown. They validate parking so this is a great place to have an excellent meal before a performance.

This was a great lunch spot! We were enjoying our day in the spa, and decided instead of ordering to the spa we would visit the bistro. We were not disappointed. The service is excellence, and lunch is very affordable with a wide range of selections. I enjoyed the soup & salad combo, and he enjoyed the squid ink pasta with lump crab meat. We were in and out, still feeling relaxed, in 45 minutes. Can't wait to try this location again for a work lunch, or dinner. They also serve breakfast.

We went to M Bistro on the last night we were in New Orleans. We ordered the Gumbo, it is excellent. Red fish is good. The Papadelle is the best we ever tried. Desserts of bread pudding and beignet are super delicious. Service is very good!

The restaurant is a bit pricy, however I love the proximity to the Davenport Lounge meaning we can listen to and watch Jeremy Davenport play during dinner. The atmosphereis a bit dark (use your phone light to read the menu) but the food never disappoints.
