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.

We sat in the Mystery Room, this time. Enjoyed a number of cocktails (We've not seem a Pimm's Cup, elsewhere; shame as we found it a neat pick-me-up. ). Chateau Briand was impeccable, not the usual pastry wrapped meal you find elsewhere. The Baked Alaska was over the top good, and managed to avoid feeling or tasting gauche'; no small feat for such a grand dessert. By the way, the crew that took care of us, Jeffrey and Mark did so with Grace and debonair - Special Thanks to both those gentlemen.

Went to Antoine's from a friends recomendation while in New Orleans. The food was good but the service not so much. They brought our meal out before our entres and the lead server was not even aware that we had ordered then until she brought the meal. For high dining I expect more. The attraction of the back rooms and the tour was not even mentioned we only dicovered it upon seeing a group going through. The food was good but at that price I expected more.

We expected a memorable dinner in this historical restaurant but was totally disappointed.
We requested to dine in the main dining room in our reservation but was asked to take a table in an interior room. We refused and was lead back to the main dining room. No waiter attended us for next 10 minutes until we summoned a nearby waitress to take our order.
The food is fair and overpriced for the small amount of food. There is no plating and food served on a small plate. The soft shell crab is not crispy at all. There is one good thing that Gregory, our waiter, is friendly and take care our needs once he was assigned to our table finally.
We would not go back nor would recommend this restaurant to our friends.

Every time we visit New Orleans, our tradition is having a wonderful dinner at Antoine's. The food and staff are consistently exceptional. We cannot adequately express our appreciation and respect for the people, from owners, chefs and entire staff, who keep this jewel safe for all of us. Thank you.

We were in town for the Academy of Ophthalmology and had dinner here Sunday night. It had been almost thirty years since we had lived in New Orleans. Had to come to Antoines as we had loved it when we lived here. You surpassed our expectations!! Food was amazing!! Service was impeccable!! We even got a private tour of the restaurant from the Ricky, who was so knowledgeable and funny. It was one of the best meals we have had in years!! All of us got the Pompano Pontchartrain. We won't wait thirty years to come back. Would recommend this restaurant to everyone!!

We went there for our 34th anniversary and were sorely disappointed. They were over the top about making us feel welcome when we got there but I felt extremely rushed to order and get out of there from the time we sat down until we left. What a tourist trap. We should have gone to The Court of Two Sisters. I'm not a big food connoisseur but the food was really bad. I didn't want to hurt my husband's feelings, but he admitted he was embarrassed about the whole experience. As far as a Jazz Brunch, they sang 2 songs, took a break, another 2 songs, another break and so on. I never leave negative reviews, but this experience was a bomb.

Resting on its laurels: comparable to a decent business hotel's restaurant. Nothing distinctive about food; I expected stoneground grits and fresh artichoke hearts at brunch, but I don't think that's what they serve. The service was adequate, but not attentive and certainly not world-class. Note that portions are, in the French tradition, on the small side. I suspect the assumption is that one will have three or more courses. Come here for dessert perhaps, and certainly the spectacle of Cafe Brulot, but dine elsewhere.

Initially was disappointed as we sat down at 6 pm - and no one came by for almost 20 minutes. Trust me - tons of waiters walking around - lots of empty tables - but we were ignored for some reason. When I finally flagged down a waited - asked him whether we had a sign above our table saying - "don't serve they have the plague". Well - that got his attention and another waited came over - and truly was extremely attentive, cordial, professional and classy. The food was good - but not as good as Commander's Palace. Price - fair although the wine is not cheap if you order a bottle of anything decent.

A little disappointed in the food. The service was awesome. After worrying about what I️ was going to wear, they sat a group next to us with guys in tank tops, girls in shorts. If you’re going to have a dress code, stick to it! For our occasional, fancy lunches, we’ll stick to Commander’s.

The wait staff was very friendly and accommodating. We did not expect the tour after our lunch, but it certainly was a bonus. Very impressive establishment with lots of history....we had no idea. The food was excellent and I would recommend it to anyone visiting New Orleans. I wish we lived closer so that we could dine there more frequently.

The beef was chewy. When I complained to the waitress she replied it is supposed to be that way. It was chewy because it was a low quality piece of meat. There was no mention of a discount or credit. Save your money and try another establishment which isn't over priced.

Very disappointing! Wanted a nice evening out while on vacation. Ordered shrimp cocktail (1/2 not de-veined), split a wedge salad and then ordered the Chateaubriand for 2 ($120) which came with potatoes, 2 sauces and sauteed mushrooms and we added broccoli. We didn't receive our potatoes until we asked (halfway through the meal as we were trying to give them the benefit of the doubt). When the manager brought them out it turns out it was a plain peeled potato cut in four and baked - no seasoning, no butter - nothing! We ordered the chocolate mousse for dessert which was the best part of the meal! Thought that maybe dessert would have been comped since we had to wait so long for part of our meal, but no. Expected more from a 5-star restaurant!

As good as we wanted it to be. Great food and service. Gator soup and bread pudding 2 of the best things I ever eaten. We went thinking it may be too formal and feel uncomfortable. Was actually very welcoming and not stuffy at all. Prices were lower than expected. Compared to other places, for just a few dollars more you can eat at one of the nicest and best places in the city.

I took my significant other to Antoine's for her birthday. Winchester, our waiter, provided us with not only excellent service, but also a brief history lesson about the restaurant itself. We availed ourselves of the Prix Fixe menu option for the Sunday Brunch, and were rewarded with an outstanding meal. We will return to Antoine's with each trip to N.O.L.A.

An iconic New Orleans restaurant that is still wonderful--the food, the ambiance, the service. I ate there a few days ago, but a year ago hosted my daughter's wedding reception for 125. They are as wonderful for two as for 125. Ask the waiters about the history of the place and the dishes. Don't miss the Oysters Foch, Oysters Rockefeller and Crab Ravigote, among other things. I do wish they would bring back the Pompano en Papillote, Crepes Suzette and Boeuf Robespierre (with sweetbreads), and the avocadoes for the Crab Ravigote so it will be Crab Garibaldi again.

The worst oysters rockafella we've ever had. Our main course was under par. The fish dinner was very dry and needed seasoning. The gravy on the veal chop was made out a packet. Could have gone to a cafeteria style buffet and got this quality food for a much cheaper price. Overall... the food was not good and way overpriced. For all the hype of being the oldest restaurant in New Orleans, it was a big disappointment. Don't waste your time or money there.
