DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY HERE!!! Our server was HORRIBLY inattentive, the food took forever to get out to us, and it was EXTREMELY overpriced for what you received. We had gone for a nice Mother’s Day dinner, but all 6 of us (my children included) had a terrible experience. This is the first bad review I’ve ever left for any restaurant in my life, but if it saves one family from going through the same ordeal, it’s worth it. The kids menu was extremely over priced ($10 for Mac-n-cheese...nothing else included!) and did not include kids drinks....they cost an extra $3 or $4. There weren’t any veggies offered on the kids menu, either. N’Tini’s REALLY needs to get this straight...check out other neighboring restaurants’ kids menus for Pete’s sake. The cheeseburger my son received HAD NO CHEESE, and when we were looking for our server (who didn’t come back like most do to check and make sure everything came out ok), my mom finally had to get up and go hunt her down just so we could get cheese for my son, 20 minutes after his food had been delivered. Then the server brought out shredded cheese instead of just a slice....yeah, shredded cheese totally sticks to a now-cold burger. 🙄 My mom’s order of sweet potato fries were completely forgotten, and the “Duke” hamburger my brother ordered was the same size (smaller than, really) a Wendy’s single cheeseburger. We literally had to flag down our server 3 times, and even after seeing us, SHE STILL COMPLETELY IGNORED US AND WALKED AWAY....THRICE!!! My food, my father’s food & my brother’s burger just did not taste good. If you’re going to charge people prices equivalent to Ruth Chris’, Commanders, Dakota, Del Porto, and Zea’s, YOU’D BETTER DELIVER THE SAME OR BETTER QUALITY AND QUANTITY.

We’re all pretty positive people who eat at local restaurants at least once a week, but WE WILL NOT EVER RETURN HERE AGAIN. Not sure how this place is even staying in business to be honest!

We had been to N'Tini's several times previously and truly enjoyed those visits. This time was very different. Our server was training a new server which would have been fine if attention were paid by the trainer to what the trainee was writing down with our orders. The orders were not correct and our courses came from the kitchen inconsistently. With each course something was missing and it took several requests to get it correct. My son in law ordered iced tea and received it after 1/2 of the appetizers arrived. I requested a 2nd margarita and it didn't come out until I was eating my dessert. My husband ordered a rib eye med rare and it came out almost burnt. When it was returned to the table he received a filet. Very different in flavor and not what he ordered. My son in law's vegetables didn't come out with his meal they came out with the my husband's steak. (just a few of the issues)
We were very disappointed in the service and felt it did not match the flavor of the food or the price of the meal. Sad because we love the flavor of the food but the service was so bad that we probably won't return.

Went there for Sunday brunch. Bid improvement on food. Grits and grillades is delicious and very rich in flavor. Food presentation is excellent. French fries is very good! Chef and owner charmed diners by saying hello at their tables. This is a plus to the restaurant. We received superior service from Samantha making sure we have everything on out table.

We had a wonderful birthday lunch. Food and service was excellent. However, I mentioned to the young lady who seated us that we had a birthday girl and she said she would notify the server. I had also put in my Open Table initial reservation that we had a birthday in our party. Nothing happened or was mentioned by the service. I assume no one reads the notes on Open Table reservations and the lady who seated us did not bother to mention to the server. That was disappointing.

I scheduled a reservation for Sunday September 2 and even confirmed with the restaurant the day prior that they were open for brunch at 11.
When we arrived we found they were closed for the day. We were very disappointed because we have always had good meal at this restaurant

We had a Tammany Taste of Summer dinner at N'Tini's, first time we've been, and we were pleasantly surprised througout - very good drinks, great service, very good value dinner (petit filet w/caesar salad for $27). Good seasoning on the filet, which, while under-cooked (dark red in the center), came up to temperature as we ate it due to it being served on a smoking hot iron dish.

Interestingly, N'Tini's seems to be about 90% populated by women, which isn't such a bad thing!

Not our scene. We were surprised by the noise level and the general atmosphere. For these prices, we were expecting more of a fine dining experience vs a noisy bar scene. Also, my ribeye was very underwhelming. My wife enjoyed her Gulf fish. For us, there are better choices in the Mandeville/Covington area for these prices.

We were not as happy with the flavor & quality of the food this trip, to the point that I asked if Chef Duke was still at the restaurant. I was told yes, but that particular night he was out of the restaurant at a special event in Covington. Made me wonder if the quality goes down when he’s not there. I’ve loved it before, so I will return for another try.
