NOLA is chef/restaurateur Emeril Lagasse’s casual eatery in the heart of New Orleans’ French Quarter. Open since 1992, the critically-acclaimed restaurant fuses traditional Creole, Acadian and Southern cuisine with global influences. Chef de Cuisine Philip Buccieri works closely with Chef Emeril to create an innovative menu showcasing rustic Louisiana cooking with local ingredients and some ethnic twists. The three-story restaurant features an open-action kitchen, chef’s food bar and a signature wood-fired brick oven. NOLA was renovated in 2017 and is now open daily at 11:30 am serving one menu for lunch and dinner.

Service was slow. Restaurant looked a little tired. The portions didn’t seem consistent. Our neighboring table order similar food and their portions seemed bigger and they also seemed to be served more quickly. It was a disappointment for a celebrity chef restaurant.

Miss the “old NOLA”. Walked into a neon, too casual, unprofessional atmosphere-so disappointing.

Gorgeous food. The oyster pie was so interesting! A flaky crust on top with a creamy sauce and packed with oysters. The frog legs were VERY spicy but balanced out with a creamy yogurt sauce. NOLA greens - get it if nothing else for "Bucky's" vinaegrette - a wonderful herby dressing on a light salad. We shared the gulf fish - an amazing dish - so balanced and well cooked. The dessert - turtle pie...incredibly rich and chocolaty. We only had a couple of bites because by that time, we were done! Service was outstanding.

We had reservations here and still had to wait about 20 minutes. We ordered cocktails that were tasty in the bar and people- watched, which was really fun. The waiter was not that friendly, but efficient. The food were very small portions, but full of flavor. Highly recommenced the mama's stuffed chicken wings! Overall a fun experience. Good to visit once. Don't think I'd go back to this restaurant again as I had plenty of other restaurant experiences that were more reasonably priced with bigger portions in NOLA.

We had been at this restaurant a year ago & learned it had since been redesigned. Instead of a refined, elegant place we walked into what now resembles an upscale sports bar. We were seated in a corner and were subsequently surrounded by two large pre-wedding parties. Noise became intense & service became very slow. Although the food was satisfactory we did not like the new “small plates” concept.

Bring back the former NOLA with the tablecloths!

Slow service, entrees for the table arrived as staggered delivery instead of all of the same time. The food offerings tried too hard-overthought and over spiced, leaving the fresh fish/seafood unrecognizable.

Went here for a business dinner and the food was good! The crab cake was delicious and the Fried chicken is a must have!! The sweet potato puree that the fried chicken came on is just like the sweet potato casserole I make for the holidays.... scrumpdiddlyumptious!!! Desserts were good as well, notably the turtle pie and monkey ice cream cake. I would go back!
