Steakhouse | French Quarter, New Orleans

This was my second time dining here. I would recommend it but I would advise about a few big problems we had. Our water was to pre-occupied with his image and himself. My meal was prepared wrong, even after I expressed how important it was to have everything cooked right due to medical reasons. We did notice that most of the other staff was hustling. The bus boy was incredible at handling the whole room. I do believe our experience was not as pleasant as it could have been had we had a better waiter. We really love Galatoire's and have never had a bad experience in that side of the restaurant. I hope that waiter was just having a off day. More

Went here for drinks and appetizers while spending vacation in town. The octopus app was the best we’ve ever had. We also got the anchovy toast and brussel sprouts which were all amazing and very different/unique from lots of the other places in town that we’ve tried. Cocktails were also delicious. Highly recommend trying this place! More

My friend and I were staying at the adjacent hotel; this was one of several meals we had at Legacy Kitchen Craft Bar over 4 days. We found the staff to be consistently friendly, courteous, helpful, and efficient. They were respectful of our dietary requirements, and the cook and kitchen staff followed through! Fresh comfort food well-prepared with great flavor and attractive presentation, true for multiple dishes we ordered. Comfortable, low-key vibe. Happy to call Legacy our "home base" place during our visit. More

An adventure for the senses - on my birthday, nonetheless! My wife and I were lucky enough to enjoy an unforgettable meal and experience at Saint-Germain. Chefs Blake Aguillard and Trey Smith obviously take great care in sharing their inventive creations without an ounce of stuffiness. The front of house staff was friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere was warm, relaxed and intimate. The coursed tasting menu changes periodically, but anything that comes out of this little shotgun will leave you wanting more. They also offer bar fare and a happy hour, which we are excited to check out soon. We can’t wait to return! More

Gumbo is a New Orleans staple and here at Gumbo YaYa we’ve taken gumbo to an art form. Our location in the historic Jax Brewery building serves the very best of this Louisiana concoction along with a host of other culinary delights sure to please every palette.

Let’s start at the very beginning – our crafted Gumbos. Our namesake Gumbo YaYa is a mixture of gulf shrimp, oyster blue crab, chicken and andouille sausage. Choose from other scrumptious recipes like our 7-steak gumbo, Seafood and Okra gumbo, Duck and Andouille sausage and much more or, if you’re not in the mood for gumbo (and there may be a time) we have several other soups to choose from.

But Gumbo is just the beginning. Stick to your ribs entrees, Fried Seafood platters, AMAZING sandwiches and Po’ Boys are there for your pleasure. Add in amazing, down-home sides, a robust kids menu and desserts, desserts and more desserts and this will be the ONLY place you’ll want to stopMore

Discover New Orleans

French, Spanish and Creole influences evolved New Orleans cuisine into a genre all its own. Combine Gulf coast seafood, a butter-based sauce and Cajun spices, and you’re looking at a classic Nola dish. Take the famed crawfish boil, for instance, which locals advise is best eaten as a family. In the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, the restaurant industry banded together to support their city in the wake of serious devastation. New restaurants began opening their doors, and today you’ll find a wealth of cuisines that span the classics to modern reinventions to everything in between.
