About Antoine's

We are the oldest family owned restaurant in the country serving traditional French Creole cuisine since 1840. We invite you to stop in and experience a fine dining French Creole experience like no other.

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.

Crabcakes and softshell crabs were outstanding and I would come back to eat them again. The waiter greeted me kindly but service was slow and unattentive in the end. My neighboring table complained about the same issue.

Our dinners were were very good. An old New Orleans restaurant that has preserved its heritage and some of its original and famous recipes. It was fun to eat there. However our service was very poor. Our waiter and his helper would take an order and then not return for 15 or 20 minutes. It took t least 15 minutes to have our dirty dishes cleared after we finished eating. We ordered coffee at that time and wanted another 20 minutes for it to arrive — slightly warm but not hot. No one asked if we wanted a coffee refill and there was no one in sight to ask for a refill.

We were served by Sterling Amour. He gave us an individual tour of the entire restaurant and made us feel so special! This was our first time, but it won’t be our last. We fell in love with the rich history of Antoine’s, as well as, the seasonal special that was absolutely unreal! Oysters Rockefeller: 10! 10! 10!

From walking in to walking out, one of the best resturants in New Orleans, they ran a great lunch special, and wasn't bad on the expense account.

Beadroux and Kent did an amazing job. We had # 4,078,292 of Oysters Rockefeller. We had lovely Sazerac cocktails and the best crawfish bisque I’ve ever eaten! Pricing was reasonable but be aware that entrees are a la carte. Overall a great experience and they must be doing something right after 177 years.

Antoine's is the classic French-Creole restaurant and the building and dining rooms are elegant a pleasure to visit. The menu is dated with the classic French dishes feeling a bit too heavy without the elegance of the tradition or the spirit of Creole side. Nevertheless, the sauces are superb.

Great service, great ambiance, great history. The staff exude pride in the wonderful decorum and history of this beautiful setting are more than willing to share stories.

They encourage you to walk around after your meal which I’d highly recommend.

That being said, the food is average at best and honestly disappointing given the setting and price.

The oysters Bienville was the best of a trio of oyster dishes we had but not something that can’t be passed up.

The gumbo was good but no where near what is expected at an icon. Same for the onion soup.

The creamed spinach was point blank bad.

The entrees were pedestrian and disappointing. Good but only good.

Still, this was a fun and exciting place to go once.

 (New England)·Dined on November 26, 2017

I made a reservation at Antoine's for a Sunday Brunch date with my husband on our visit to New Orleans. A clerk at our hotel recommended it as it is a well established and historical restaurant. When reviewing the website for Antoine's it seemed very proper and a bit upscale which is what we wanted. The website indicated that there is a dress code and if you did not comply, it would be to the manager's discretion to allow you to stay. We both dressed accordingly. We got to Antoine's and were seated. This was supposed to be a Jazz Brunch but no music was playing, apparently they were on break. The room was a large open and cold room. The architecture was old New Orleans but that it was it. We were seated and after five minutes wanted to leave. Person after person walked in with T shirts and shorts with flip flops and torn jeans, etc. The service was nothing special and the food sparse with little taste. The band came in and played five songs and left to go to another room to play. This establishment may have been something in it's day, but not now.

When I visit a fine dining establishment, I expect to be impressed. From the hostess not looking up to greet us, the paper menus, dirty glasses, missing napkins, and the drinks that were no doubt made with the wrong ingredients to the entrees coming out before the appetizer, you could say I was less than impressed. And the food was simply unremarkable...so much so, that we decided NOT to have dessert there and went down the street to Brennan’s for Bananas Foster. We were extremely disappointed with the whole experience. My wife and I had waited our whole lives to dine at this historic venue and were saddened by the realization that it probably won’t be around much longer given the type of lackluster attention to detail we witnessed.

Antoine’s is the oldest restaurant in New Orleans , open since 1940, and you can feel the history there. They do a prix fixe 3 course lunch for $20.17, next year will
Go up to $20.18. A steal, and the food was fantastic! A must visit when in New Orleans!

Disappointing. We have been going to Antoine's for years and love the old traditional charm of the place. Food is usually good to excellent as is the service. We always look forward to cherries Jubilee for dessert. This time instead of flamed dark cherries with ice cream, the waitress, Glenda, flamed maraschino cherries - claiming that they had not received a delivery of dark cherries that day so she had improvised by getting cherries from the bar. AWFUL!!! Then a table of 6 beside us ordered cherries Jubilee and were served the flamed dark cherries. When we complained to the manager, he apologized but offered no lagniappe - didn't remove the charge from our bill, did not offer a replacement dessert, did not offer a free drink - nothing. Definitely not what we have come to expect from a fine New Orleans restaurant.

We were greatly disappointed with the overall experience. We were sat by ourselves in an empty old “Spanish dungeon” room, forgotten about for about 10 minutes and my fish, although delicious with crawfish sauce atop it, came on a small kids-like plate and cost $36. Very friendly service, but not well organized or romantic at all for our anniversary dinner. Very disappointed. Much better dining experience at Commanders palace.
