My date and I ate at M Bistro before the symphony. Perfect including free parking. The service and food was great. I left my umbrella in my car and the staff had my umbrella brought from the parking lot to our table. Wow! All the food was excellent.

The service was amazing and so was the food. It was our anniversary and the waiter brought us a champagne toast and trio of deserts on the House. The restaurant overlooks the Davenport lounge so we had live Jazz for most of our meal. It was a little loud if you were next to it but our server happily moved us toward the back so we could still hear it and each other.

My husband and I celebrated our 60th anniversary here and it was so beautiful. The food was very good and our server was very attentive and caring. What a romantic night it was for us. Our check was paid by a total stranger. What kindness to say the least. Thank you Mr Bistro. It will always remain a lovely memory for us.
Thank You

Large group that went for a special occasion. Food was mediocre. Waiter was surly and rude and brought the wrong food and in the wrong order. We still had to tip 20% because tip was added because of large group. Food was bland. Not what we expected from a restaurant in the Ritz Carlton.

Food was excellent, service was slow as molasses. Chalking it up to potentially being short staffed due to local street flooding earlier in the day? Enjoyed the ambiance of the "cheater booth" seating.

We went for a Coolinary meal. It's a hotel restaurant, and we knew that...but it really has a hotel atmosphere. The vibe would be much better, in my opinion, if the restaurant space was walled off or separated in some fashion.
The other big detriment on our visit was noise. A conventional group made their way into the dining area before we got our appetizers. They were very loud. The restaurant apparently had no where to put them other than in the main dining area.
Our table of four had three different appetizers. The seafood gumbo was very good. The chargrilled oysters were unlike any chargrilled we've ever had. They were lukewarm at best. Close to raw. At the very least, the menu description was way off.
The main courses were the best part of the meal. We all had petite filets tgat were cooked ti the desired doneness.
Service was fine. They apologized for the noise and checked on us appropriately.
Just ok. Not a great value, even for Coolinary. We won't be back.

We were in town celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and we stayed at The Ritz Carlton. We didn't really want to go to another restaurant and worry about parking etc so we decided to eat at the hotel. I'm glad we decided to eat here. Everything was cooked perfectly. I had the filet and my husband had chicken. They surprised us with dessert the was specially prepared by the chef for our anniversary and it was tremendous.

Bistro was closed and they had no awareness of our reservation. However they honored it and sat us in the beautiful Davenport lounge. We were given the bistro menu and got to order what we went for. The bbq shrimp and grits was fantastic and our server was the best we've had since arriving in new orleans. Hotel was gorgeous as well.

The food was very very good. Great local fare, very good quality. Our waitress was not as attentive as we would have liked. The restaurant is a little dark, chairs are not very comfortable. Although we did not say anything, our dessert (homemade sorbets and gelato, which were very good) were given on the house. We will definitely go back to this restaurant.
