Contemporary American
Farm-to-table and authentic New Orleans cuisine come together in the French Quarter at M bistro, where the chefs take an indigenous approach to the preparation of meats, seafood and produce from farmers in Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi and Alabama. Three velvet-draped semi-private “Cheater’s Booths” and a private Wine Room offer additional venues for a special meal.

Our restaurant and lounge are conveniently located on the third floor lobby level of The Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans. Parking is validated with purchase.

We welcome Walk-In Reservations for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Sunday through Wednesday.
Reservations for MBistro are recommended for Dinner Thursday through Saturday.

I don't normally leave reviews but I was pretty disappointed with the level of service coming from a Ritz Carlton. Our waitress never introduced herself and was pretty cold. She did not smile or make eye contact until I asked for the birthday beignets since I brought my boyfriend for his birthday. I put this request in with my reservation but she clearly wasn't aware. It was comped which I was appreciative of though. She also did not bring us bread and we had to ask the food runner for some. The food was delicious but the lobster ravioli my boyfriend ordered was hardly enough for an appetizer. Overall, not what I expected and I wouldn't recommend it as there are better restaurants to try in New Orleans for the same price.

While everything was fine, we were expecting more of a "Ritz Carlton" experience. This is our first visit to this restaurant but not our first visit to a restaurant on Ritz property. So slightly disappointing.

The service was pretty terrible, at times it felt like they had forgotten about us. Tables with different serves seemed to be getting way more attention. We had an appetizer of fried green tomatoes but they were cold and overcooked. The only bright point was the entrees, frenched chicken and lobster ravioli. The table bread was also delicious, only problem was that every table except ours got it. We had to ask.

Beautiful restaurant located in a beautiful hotel. We had no idea how to get to the restaurant, but staff is very helpful upon entering giving you directions. The buffet is set up very nicely. Made to order omelets are delicious. The seating is very comfortable. We enjoyed our first time dining here.

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.

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.

Food was great. Wish we were seated towards the back of the restaurant because the noise from the lounge just outside was very loud. Highly recommend the gumbo. Best we’ve ever had!
