Our service was sub standard. We never saw our waiter excuses excuses! We made our reservations two months in advance expecting so much more but they did not deliver. Got our order wrong. We left leaving a tip because that’s who we are. But we did alert the hosts about the bad experience. I would not come again and I would definitely not recommend this restaurant. We were in and out in 35 minutes

Shirley at the main bar made the trip amazingly memorable. Restaurant was upscale although lunch crowd is tourist dress. Staff was friendly but the food was ok. I am happy we did price fix lunch as dinner would have not been worth it

The food was pedestrian and service poor. We felt as if we were an inconvenience. With the reputation and historic nature of this restaurant we were expecting so much, but were disappointed in every aspect.

Antione's spring lunch special, $20.18 for a three course meal, is a terrific value. The food was very good. Together our party of 4 tried the broiled oysters, salad, soup, seafood and grits, fried drum (winner!) and bread pudding dessert. All were very good.
Unfortunately, the service wasn't attentive. It took a long time to order and an even longer time to get our bill-- we ended up having to flag down a different waiter to help us.
If you want really fine Creole dining, there are other obvious options in town which will kiss your behind and blow you away with their food --and price tag! If you want to get a good bargain in a lovely old space and are willing to deal with merely ordinary levels of service, try it. For the price tag, it's hard to go wrong.

What was once an elegant event in old New Orleans has become a Times Square-like spectacle of a tourist attraction only. Wait staff totally disingenuous...one promising to take our picture and never returning to table - one taking our credit card and leaving - others had to go find him after twenty minutes...but when they do return - it's with burned coffee. Shrimp and grits with canned shrimp in it - a baked Alaska that was mass produced - looked plastic and had Cool Whip on top. We didn't touch it - we left it on the table. The Antoine's website which shows the beautiful white lined draped tables dining room and the elegant green room are fake. They ship you past the restrooms into the back that looks like a catering hall - with no New Orleans charm of any kind. The founders of Antoine's is rolling in their graves. What an embarrassment - and complete waste of well over $150...for two.

Outstanding! We were a group of 7 that went for Sunday morning brunch. The service and the food were awesome. We were looking for a special place and special meal for our family and we found it. The music was great but not over bearing. Do not hesitate as this is an excellent place.

The wait staff rushed constantly, asking us if we were finished with plates that still had food on them while we were still eating??? We had two expensive bottles of wine (same exact wines)...the first decanted and the second poured straight from the bottle before we had a chance to stop the waiter. When serving the desert, table side Cherry Jubilee, the waiter did not serve half of the cherries and started leaving the table (with the cherries and sauce) when I asked him to please serve all of the cherries??? Inexperienced staff! We were told the restaurant was under new management and it was obvious that their management priority was a ‘number’ game, not about ‘service’. The food was good, not great... not sure what the hype is about on this restaurant other than a very old, historic name.

Love coming to Antoine’s! It was recommended to me at my first visit to New Orleans 13 years ago by my great grandfather . He was stationed here during WW II and really enjoyed it.

Although this is a classic restaurant, I was disappointed that as a vegetarian there was little to eat. We had the spring $20 luncheon special which included three courses. The main entrée was chicken or fish and the waiter said that the chef would not substitute. Antoine’s needs to accommodate people with special needs , in my opinion . For this reason, I would not choose to return to this restaurant again.

We had the $20.18 brunch and it was excellent. Service, food, ambiance were wonderful. This mainstay of the New Orleans dining scene remains a place to put on your bucket list if you haven’t been there.

We went to Antoine's on our first trip to New Orleans as it's the oldest restaurant and the creator of Oysters Rockefeller. To say I was disappointed is the understatement of the century. They cane out with a thick layer of puréed, over cooked spinach covering the entire plate. It looked very unappetizing as the spinach was brown and had no redeeming visual feature to it. Had it been delicious I could overlook the unappetizing appearance. However, it tasted like overcooked, mucky spinach without an ounce of redemption. The oysters under the layer of muck were just steamed oysters. No butter no garlic no special anything. The rest of the dinner was acceptable but certainly not exceptional. Service was exactly the same… Acceptable, not exceptional. For the price you pay, I would steer clear.

In a word-FABULOUS! Michael was knowledgeable and personable. Lisa was the perfect hostess! She knew the history of Antoine’s and was so generous with her time and otherwise. This made a special occasion ( our mother’s 95th birthday and return to Antoine’s after 70 years ) truly memorable. The food was wonderful. And altogether excellent experience!

We stopped in at the Hermès Annex by Antoine’s prior to our reservation at Antoine’s for dinner. The service in both places was terrible. Everyone acted as though we were are burden to them. And this was at 5:30-6pm when they first opened. The food was ok, but I don’t think it was worth the price. Will definitely not go here again.

One of the highlights of our trip to New Orleans! Everything outstanding! Our waiter, Terry, was amazing. Made us feel special. They had a $20.18 three course lunch special and 25 cent lemon drop martinis (different martini every day). Unbelievable! Can’t wait to go back! Oh, almost forgot, the best bread pudding I have ever tasted!!

We felt rushed by the waiter. He was also careless and didn’t care about my wife’s allergies and pushed us to the manager - who was very kind, but this experience was ruined. I had been to the restaurant before, but this will be my last visit to this place. Goodbye Antoine’s!

Very nice hostess, maitre d' and manager. Waitress started out great but disappeared at the end; we had to go find someone else to bring the check. Sunday brunch was supposed to have live jazz but it was not in our large "back" dining hall which was disappointing (only up front). The oysters Rockefeller were a big disappointment, the fried oysters unimpressive, the fried drum without flavor. The crawfish bisque was good. The warm bread great. I would skip this once great restaurant.

Beautiful warm dining room on a cold blustery Sunday. Great, engaging, friendly staff from top to bottom. Makes you remember what true service is like. Food was solid and well prepared....quality as expected...but not inventive as you can now find in NOLA. Sunday Jazz trio was a bit loud for the space.

Went for Sunday Brunch. The french toast was good. all else OK. Was surprised when a baked alaska dessert was delivered to our table. Thought it might have been included in brunch deal but it wasn't. It cost me $19, wasn't that good, and I didn't order it. A bit of a scam I'd say.

Absolutely loved this place! The history and ambiance was just the start of a great dining experience. The service and food were top notch, I would highly recommend Antoine’s. It can get a bit loud and seem chaotic, but we are from a big metropolitan area, so we felt right at home. We would definitely go back when visiting Nola.

The restaurant is more of historical experience ...not gourmet New Orleans. Service was uneven with second waiter who was in training...very basic training. We would not return. Wanted my guests to see the old grand NO tradition which has faded with too much tourism.

On the plus side, Antoine's was very helpful with our request to change reservation times.
