Antoine's Restaurant has set the standard making New Orleans one of the greatest dining destinations in the world. Antoine Alciatore was the first to serve visitors such New Orleans culinary treasures as Crawfish Cardinal and Shrimp Remoulade.
His descendants, now fifth generation, continue the process. His son, Jules, created such unique offerings as Oyster Bienville, Foch, and Rockefeller. Invented here, and only here is the original Oyster Rockefeller served, still a secret family recipe. Come and experience the culinary delights that have made Antoine's Restaurant a living history.

My server Kenneth was very informative. I definitely coming back!
Brian Mc. was one of the best severs I have ever experienced. The food was amazing. Will definitely come back!
Such a great old gem and our server Gregory was fantastic. We will definitely be back.
Brian did a great job
Shrimp Romealade now what I expected. The Matridee was dressed in brown, ugh. Way off the traditional class Antoines is known for.
Our server was outstanding and made up for the lacking but the Matridee needs to get his class back. He is the first thing you see. I was shocked.
As good as advertised. No wonder they are around for 140!years. Thoroughly enjoyed everything.
We had a terrible experience. Steaks weren’t cooked, dessert was cold. Server dropped food on us multiple times. Very expensive. Not worth the price.
The food was very good and the decor of the restaurant was amazing. However, the service was not as good as we expected considering the reputation of the restaurant. We stood in the middle of the restaurant waiting for a table to be prepared, plates were cleared before all of us had finished eating and items were not provided; i.e., tartar sauce for the fish. Drink sizes varied. Brennan's restaurant provided a better dining experience. We had stopped at Antoine's bar the day before for drinks and appetizers and had a much better experience with a wonderful waitress.
We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. The service was great and the ambiance is exceptional.
Perfect for a quiet fine dining lunch. Staff was very attentive and helpful with suggestions. The Oysters Rockefeller and Thermidor were out of this world.
We heard great things about Antoine’s — we just didn’t experience them. We were a group of 8 out for dinner after a conference. The dining room was extremely noisy. Worse, the server was inattentive and rolled her eyes when asked about dietary modifications. Four of our eight entrees were cooked improperly — either way undercooked or overcooked. Side dishes were forgotten. And, the best part— we asked for a Baked Alaska for someone’s birthday. We wrote his name down. It came out with the wrong name. We informed the server of the issues throughout the evening. No concessions at all. Fortunately there are far better options in Nola.
Very disappointed. Service was lacking and food delivered was lukewarm.
Fish was excellent but veal was tough. Service was great.
I began going to Antoine's about sixty years ago, and try to go there each time I'm in New Orleans so about every five years or so. Obviously memory improves places but my experience was that this was a somewhat faded version of a formerly outstanding restaurant. The souflee potatoes were somewhat as remembered, the soft-shell crab was very good. The steak with wine sauce was quite tough. I'd go back because of the memories but I'm not sure I'd recommend it to a friend given the competitive NO dining scene.
Overpriced for less than average food. Wine steward helped select a red wine for our dinner and the wrong wine was sent out. The correct bottle eventually came out but he never showed up to ask us if we liked it. Waiter was demeaning to the busboy in front of us. What was supposed to be the highlight dining experience of our vacation was poor at best.
Antoines is a must go for anoyone interested in the "real" New Orleans. Serving since 1846, the service is impeccable. A bit pricey to be honest but they have earned the right to charge a bit more. The food is excellent. Ask for Paul, he is the greatest and most attentive personality in the place.
We thoroughly enjoyed the Fall lunch special and 25c cocktails. The food was delicious and just the right amount for lunch. Our servers were professional, efficient and friendly
We always enjoy our visit to Antoine’s .. However, I give you a 3 and a 1/2 on this trip ..
The waiter Albert and server Paul were amazing gentleman. They made the night I’ll never forget. The food was so delicious. Born and raised in city and this was my first time. Well worth it. Patrick
The history and staff is what makes this place enjoyable. The food was good, but not spectacular. A bit overpriced. You're paying for the experience of eating in New Orleans' oldest restaurant.
Let’s start by saying that NOLA is an amazing city full of wonderful music and great food. However, this is not the case at Antoine’s. My wife and I got married this past Thursday and decided to spend our mini-honeymoon in NOLA. We are both “foodies,” so we had a list of restaurants we wanted to visit Brennan’s and Commanders Palace to name a few. We saved Antoine’s for last because we love history and this place is living history but the entire experience was a disappointment. The service was so/so and the food overall was bland and overpriced.
We both ordered oysters, soup, salad, an entree and dessert. The oysters were good, soups were okay, but the French onion soup had way too much cheese with very little soup, it was basically cheese and onions. The gumbo was okay but very bland . The salads were decent, but our but entrees were awful. The $42 fish (Pompano Pontchartrain, “a signature dish”) was literally drowned in butter with some crab meat on top. The chicken thighs aka Poulet Coq au Vin was bland and had no taste whatsoever. We were both hoping that dessert, Cerises Jubilé, would save it all but that unfortunately was not the case. The ice cream was brought out well before preparation began and once the dish was completed, you could not distinguish any flavors other than the brandy. We had come here for our honeymoon and left feeling like we wasted our last night (on top of $200 before tip) in NOLA. I would save yourself the time and the money and find another restaurant!
We’ve been to Antiones over the years and last night was our worse experience. For 15 minutes we sat not having any service. It took my husband saying something to the hostess to get someone to come see if we wanted a drink. We were ignored most of the night. Most of the time when a mistake is made like that the restaurant comps you something no. I think they make you feel like it’s your privilege to eat at Antiones. I don’t think we will be back, our food was good but took forever to get too. We saw cycles of people come in and go out while we waited for service and food. One table with 8 people came in an hour after we did and was serviced their food before we were. Not a good way to be treated, especially we you are paying the process of Antiones.
What an amazing opportunity for a wonderful brunch in such an historical place. The food was 5 star. This place is a must visit when I’m NOLA.
I was skeptical with how amazing my dad made this place sound but it did not disappoint. You defiantly get what you pay for the food is so dynamic and has so many layers of flavors. Probably the best meal I had while in New Orleans.
Lovely food in a relaxed atmosphere. Bottomless mimosa for Sunday brunch was definitely worth the visit!
This is one of the best restaurants in the world. Always great food, finest service, ... and a wonderful experience overall! Recommend most highly, for any occasion.
It saddens me to have to write such a bad review but I am an honest person who had an absolute horrible experience at Antoine’s. I chose this restaurant after reading about the history and wanting to experience what I read first hand while on a girl’s trip. Our displeasure was verbally shared with the manager at our 10/12/19 7:30 pm dinner reservations who seemed less than concern and had no problem seeing us to the door. I will definitely share my experience with anyone who asks me where they should go for dinner while in NOLA and to be firm that DO NOT GO here. I’m not even sure that a redo would be any better and that really leaves a lasting impression on our trip. I hope this review is not taken lightly. Two hours of our evening was spent miserably. And to have the manager dismiss our concerns and offer no condolences was icing on the cake. I am happy to share this with you and will with others with a smile.... only to be honest not dishonest and not to be ugly but true.
Excellent! Food, Service, and Setting...all great!
It was wonderful. I had my birthday dinner there. Food was good.
We ate at Antoine’s over the weekend. They seated us in the Mystery room, so noise was not a problem. The food for me , NY strip steak was ok, not seasoned and pretty tough. It did not look like a strip steak. A 3 +/- inch square basically. The sauce was good. My husband loved the gumbo and his red fish was good but pretty basic as will. Filet on a plate, nothing more. Service was so slow. It was no less than an hour between salad till entree. The large dining were full and busy but staff seemed plentiful. I guess the hold up was kitchen.
Tourists’ trap - nothing special for the amount of money. One time experience is ok, but will not come back. Better and cheaper versions.
All of the seafood dishes for 3 of us were very good. One had the strip steak and even though cooked properly it was not tender. I asked for a steak knife and was told one should be able to cut it with a butter knife.. Good luck with that!!
Better than I remembered! There were four of us and after a long weekend in NOLA, we all agreed that Antoine’s had been our favorite meal. Cannot go wrong with any of the delicious fish dishes. Cherries Jubilee great way to cap off your meal.
Antoine's was awesome. The wife and I shared the Chateaubriand and the Cherries Jubilee. One of our favorite parts was our server Shirlacy was taking a younger gentleman, I believe his name was Clayton. In any case watching her train him in an old school no b.s. style was awesome. She was polite but firm and it's good to see younger folks taking direction and willingly receiving coaching like this. My wife referred to it as the Mama Bear method. The food was delicious. The staff was great. It's a bit noisy in there because of the open layout but that's exactly what you expect in an old place like this. I wouldn't change a thing.
AMAZING! Chuck was fantastic!
The service was horrible
The noise was unbearable
A ‘manager’ saved it from being a total disaster
Half the restaurant had shorts and t shirts on. Waited for almost an hour for drinks and apps. Never going back.
Brought some out of town friends in for their first fine dining experience in NOLA. Unfortunately we did not experience the level of service and quality we expected from one of NOLA’s best establishments - I don’t want to be hyper critical but we were not checked on very often, drink orders not placed, waiting for water refills, long waits between courses.
The food was good, not great, steaks were tough and hard to cut with butter knives (no steak knives), oysters Rockefeller were ok, storage taste without spinach, soft shell crab and pompano were excellent.
Overall, just ok
Didn’t love the oysters Rockefeller.
Baked Alaska was great!
We asked to split an order and it was done nicely. The food was good, but not fabulous. Our waiter forgot to bring us new forks for the entree, but his assistant covered for him.
