 (New York Area)·Dined 2 days ago

Disappointing. Food was not cooked as it should be.Either overcooked or raw food. Service was spotty. Was excited to eat in this historic restaurant. The best part of the meal was the baked Alaska. Also had the souffle potatoes, but they were cold by the time they reached us. We had to keep waving down our server as she was not around. All of the other wait staff seemed to be on point.
A good server can make or break the occasion.

What can you say about this classic restaurant in the heart of the French Quarter? Service and food was outstanding. We had the chateaubriand and it was fabulous! Get the baked Alaska for dessert, but check ahead of time because when they are busy they will need extra time.

I am highly disappointed in the quality of the establishment. I feel that if you’re a local you are not as important as a tourist. I will stick with Emeril’s establishments.

Antoine’s is a beautiful property and an important part of New Orleans history. But unfortunately it’s too big. They seemed to cater to locals and stick the tourists in the one huge dining room in front. The food was not great. Nothing was hot, my wine glass had food stuck to it and my husbands glass was chipped. A good restaurant doesn’t let that happen. The waiter screwed up our check and forgot to tell us until after he ran our credit card, for a higher amount.

Truly amazing restaurant with a ton of history! I'm a food lover and the waiter took the time to take me to the kitchen to meet the cooks which was a nice touch. Ask for a tour of the restaurant by Dennis. He's a wealth of knowledge!

Surprisingly, Antoine’s has some of the best chargrilled oysters in New Orleans. Not gloopy or hard with cheese and breadcrumbs; has lots of garlic butter. Shrimp bisque also some of the best. They usually offer a pre fixe lunch menu that costs whatever year it is ($20.18), and it’s always superb.

 (New England)·Dined on January 16, 2018

To say dinner at this restaurant was a terrible experience would be an understatement. My husband and I were on vacation in New Orleans and thought we would try it because it is considered an old staple and the inventors of oysters rockefeller (which we love)! Front the start, the servers were congregated at the hostess stand with little interest in assisting patrons. The hostess was rude and disinterested. Our server was very nice and friendly but didn't seem to actually want to serve the guests.

The food was so terrible. I don't know how the kitchen wasn't embarrassed to serve it. The oysters rockefeller (their signature dish!) was inedible and had a horrible flavor. To serve such terrible food at such high prices is a sham. I was so gravely disappointed. Antoine's needs a major overhaul from the decor, to the services to the quality of the food. If you're .looking for classic old New Orleans - go to Gallatoire's

Disappointing
Went to brunch and were immediately lead to a back room...while others were seated in main room. we did have a reservation.
Food was uninteresting and not particularly warm.
Lots of staff but waiter ignored us until tip time.
Had previously enjoyed Antoines.

Great location near Bourbon street but on a quiet side street . Service was terrible - waiter was rude and didn’t tell us anything about items on the menu. We saw beautiful baked Alaska’s going by and when we asked for dessert to celebrate we were informed that it had to be ordered at the beginning of the meal. Dinner was a slab of deep fried fish with nothing else on the plate. Waiter should have suggested sides. We will never go back

Very disappointed in the quality of food. I ordered the shrimp cocktail and the shrimps were very tiny. My husband ordered the soft shell crabs and the potatoes au gratin, which were very watery. The portions were also very small. We asked the waiter twice for our beverages before they were given to us. Antoine's has such an excellent reputation and we felt that our actual dining experience did not live up to it.

Great for a group or date night. Food was great. We had a party of 6 and everyone enjoyed their meal. It was chilly outside so we finished with the spice coffee. Can't remember the name. But you have to have at least 2 people order and it's made at your table. Overall great experience.

The food was wonderful, the service impeccable. We were seated in a far-flung , desolated alcove which I can understand, given the volume of patrons but it does factor into my review. I came back three days later and requested any of the more main stream dining rooms and that experience was a perfect 10. I did enjoy myself very much on both occasions.

Devlon our food runner/ busser was absolutely amazing. I can’t say the same for our server, who I will keep nameless. The food was nice and so was the ambiance. We walked around the historic building on a self guided tour until we came across a wonderful engineer/ maintenance man named Mark! Mark took it upon himself to walk us through the rooms and tell us all about the history of the building and restaurant. Mark is a legend!

A very nice atmosphere. The food was tasty especially the Crevettes Rémoulade and the Bisque d' Ecrevisses. We further had Cotelettes d'Agneau Grillées and Côte de Veau Rossini of which we expected better quality. The Cerises Jubilé should have been great, but we had better. Again a nice place to go when in NoLa. The service is good.
