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.

This restaurant lives on past glories and certainly has not kept up with times. Sysco food quality and no attention to detail, no charm , no presentation of food, bland and highly over priced.
A perfect candidate for a complete make over . Retrain the staff , make them smile and happy.
Until then, please don’t waste your time and money. Seriously. Homeless people enough to use your hard earned $ for better results and causes.

An old-school high-end restaurant which sets high expectations for both food and service. The main entrees were prepared superbly (lamb chops and a fish&crab dish as good as they get), but the several appetizers we tried were disappointing and the a la carte vegetables subpar (for example, the Bernaise sauce on broccoli, apparently going for a traditional side dish preparation, was bland and disappointing). Interestingly, our dinner plates were too small (not the entree size, just the plate!) to comfortably add the vegetables from their service plates. We went to experience for the "original" oyster Rockefeller - to each his own, but as it turns out not a great recipe even despite its possibly historical importance; certainly not worth the night with so many other great restaurants in New Orleans (in all prices ranges). Below-average attention/service from our otherwise quite nice waiter (who spent much of the night serving a separate room) and a highly inexperienced, poorly trained and borderline rude waiter assistant who filled the void. Classic desserts were in traditional form (flaming cherries jubilee, for example) though the baked Alaska (always delicious in any case) was heavier and denser than expected for such a venue. In the end, many features of an old-school high-end restaurant are present and perhaps worth experiencing if you haven't before or if you will be focused squarely only on the entrees. However, this will be a disappointment to foodies or those familiar with a great white table cloth/black tie service dining experience. Perhaps I just misjudged where they are attempting to position themselves in the restaurant hierarchy, but the prices warrant a better dining experience. Three stars it is.

We attended this restaurant for the $20.18 lunch menu during Coolinary Month. The food was outstanding: the vicychoisse was great and dessert was also very good, but the drumfish was outstanding! Service was impeccable (thank you Tyler and our senior server). We were seated in the Rex Room (away from the super-noisy Red Dress Runners (thank you very much!!!!!) I
I would not hesitate recommend Antoine's to everyone. A classic restaurant in a classic city

Antoine's is a classic. The food and ambiance were great. We had an incident where very hot coffee was spilled on one of our group by our head waiter. I am not sure enough was done to really apologize and make up for the incident. However, our waiter was incredibly knowledgeable about the menu and really nice. I feel like it was probably just an unfortunate one time flub. Without that, I would have given the experience five stars, and I feel confident I will be back again.

They seated us in a room right beside where the staff was setting up for an event. They were screaming and cussing. It was very unprofessional. Then the service was beyond poor. It took ages to get a drink, it wasn’t made properly, and they spent all their attention on the loud table behind us. The food had no taste and was expensive. We asked for our check and received it 35 minutes later. We were told by friends that they will wrap the baked Alaska (friends ate there the night before and brought home leftovers) but the waiter told us it wouldn’t travel so they don’t do it. I have no idea why we received such poor service and food but we won’t return.

My primary reason for going to Antoine’s was for the Oysters Rockefeller. What a disappointment - not only were they not what one would expect (with spinach), they tasted almost as bad as they looked.

The only restaurant I went to in NOLA where I felt like a tourist who was being taken advantage of. Small portions of mediocre to poor food at high prices.

Go elsewhere!

Charbroiled oysters, grilled drum and bread pudding for $20.00. My wife had salad, fried chicken with collards and mac and cheese and chocolate moose or the same price. Exceptional value and service. The restaurant has a lot of history and you should tour it after you are finished eating.

Overall the food was very good. My main disappointment was that we thought we were going to a local upscale restaurant and instead felt like we were eating at the Spaghetti Warehouse. The website said shirts with collars for men, jackets preferred, but we saw multiple people dining in shorts and t-shirts. Given the noisy and crowded ambience the food seemed a little overpriced but I get that we were eating in New Orleans, would not go back though.

Note: We are New Orleans natives that have not eaten at Antoine’s in many years. I made reservations for my birthday. First impression was not good. Girl at reservation desk was far from friendly. We were ask to be seated in the “Mystery Room” where the staff were having lunch (weird). When we asked to be seated in the big room, that sat us next to a post (they thought this was a better table). I stated that my first impression was not to stay and now I was going with that impression. The waiter told management we were leaving but know one cared. We walked down to Brennan’s without reservations and we were treated great.

Service was lacking, no attention to detail, served water in a sharply chipped glass which required replacement. Food was okay, nothing special. Seems they are resting in their historical laurels instead of great food and service.

Good, nice atmosphere, the waiter made a mistake and gave us an Oyster Rockefeller appetizer before we even ordered drinks. We thought it was on th house, unfortunately, they charged us for them. The food was good, but the oysters were the waiter's mistake, not ours.

Too expensive for food quality. Warm salad. Led to believe our waiter would lead us on a tour, generously tipped, then passed off to another person for the tour, not really much to see and felt obligated to tip him.
