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

They went above and beyond to ensure she had a great time and to help my handicapped mother who joined us. Special shout out to Kelly!! The food ranged. The savory food was great as were the scones. Sadly the desserts were least tasty. Ambience was very nice except that it was SO COLD that it made us want to leave sooner than we otherwise would have. I think I would go back for a special occasion but I hope the dessert improves. More

Discover French Quarter

The French Quarter of New Orleans is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the U.S., renowned for its party atmosphere and delectable food. Creole and Cajun menu staples, including jambalaya, crawfish etouffee and gumbo are on the menu, but there are so many more tastes to sample in the French Quarter. Nestled on The Quarter's many side streets, you'll find many oyster bars and quaint coffee houses. You can also visit one of the many corner grocery stores, most of which feature small kitchens in the back. These hidden gems typically serve up delicious cheeseburgers, homemade mac and cheese, and the two most famous sandwiches in the Big Easy: muffulettas and po boys. For dessert, you can grab a freshly made beignet or authentic praline and take a walk along the banks of the Mississippi River.
