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.

Came for the $20.18 lunch special and you definitely get what you pay for - tiny portions of totally servicable but unremarkable food. Go elsewhere if you’re looking for a more memorable meal.
The service was good but the food was just okay. It is pretty pricey so we expected the food to be outstanding...it fell short.
Felt very rushed. Food came out extremely quick and kept coming to the table to basicly move us out. Wine was left on the floor by the table in an ice bucket causing the floor to be wet. Food was good but you can do better in New Orleans.
Craig Melancon was a fantastic waiter
Great French cooking New Orleans style with french classics such as Mouse aux chocolate, Creme Brûlée, Baked Alaska for dessert. We loved the Pomme terre soufflé and the Soft shell crabs.
Can't wait to visit again on our next trip the The Big Easy.
After reading negative reviews I was nervous about going there to celebrate 2 Birthdays. As soon as we came in Bryon & Gabriele took immediate care of us. From the champagne to the special Baked Alaska, everything was PERFECT! Great veal chops!
The special tour at the end of dinner of the other rooms gave us a feeling of what a wonderful historic place Antoine’s is.
We usually go to Galitoires for a good meal but find Antoine’s equally as good
Waiter's helper was disinterested, waiter only came to our table 3 times very briefly, classic cocktails (martini's) were poor, one entree was not edible (it as taken off our bill - we had looked forward to eating at this classic French restaurant for months and were totally disappointed - would not recommend it to anyone.
Great service and staff. Classic dishes from a bygone era. Fabulous bar with skilled mixmasters. A window to the past with a slosh of panache.
We went to Antoine’s as a treat for our anniversary and were seated in the 1840 room. The restaurant was beautiful and the service was excellent. However, the food left much to be desired. Further, there was no background music at all, so we were seated in an intimate setting with other couples and had to whisper to have private conversation. We felt closed off from the hustle and bustle of the main dining room, and $300 later we were disappointed and still hungry. My suggestion is to go have a drink in the bar, appreciate the beautiful and historic setting and then go around the corner to Galatoire’s or Arnaud’s for real food.
Antoine's was AMAZING! We went twice, on Wednesday, 10/17/18 for my best friend's birthday and again for lunch on Friday, 10/19/18. The food was amazing and the staff was so great. We had Greg (waiter) and Micah (back waiter) on Wednesday. They were both fabulous! When we went back on Friday, we had Darrell and Micah was there again, so he was our back waiter again. Darrell was nice, but the team of Greg and Micah was OUTSTANDING! That's what made us want to come back again on Friday. The price is the year lunch special is great and the .25 cent drinks are fun. Thanks for 2 amazing experiences!
Happy to say we have dined at Antoine’s in New Orleans
Antoine's was recommended by a friend. Overall experience was disappointing especially the service. There was nothing inviting or friendly about her. The oysters were awful. On our last night we dined at Brennan's and had a wonderful experience (loved our server) and the oysters were divine.
The best. David was a great waiter and knew so much.
We had lunch here and the meal was absolutely delicious. Would highly recommend.
The restaurant was chaotic and busy when we arrived with a reservation. They did seat us fairly quickly, but in spite of having three people assigned to our table, we found the service lacking. They made a mistake on my wine, but left the incorrect glass on the table. Then charged us for it! The waiters were harried and unfriendly. The food was outstanding, but we will not be back.
4/5 stars! Food came fast and was very tasty. Only bummer was that our server forgot to mention about the .25 cent drinks. We heard her explain to other guests, just not us. A tad disappointing. Aside from that the food was great. A three course meal for $20.18? Can't be beat!
Lived up to our expectations in every way! Glad we made reservations.
We enjoyed our dinner and the service. The venue was a very large room but it was reasonably quite. he waiter are very helpful and the food was great.
We had a wonderful experience at this historic location. The food was fantastic and service was spot on. What more could you ask for.
After all of the hype I have heard for years....the food was not impressive at all. Service was the best....but that cannot make up for a menu that was bland and not a "French-Cajun" as one would expect.
Excellent all around. Food, service, ambience. Enjoyed every second. Waitstaff loves their job. Maitre d unparalleled service.
It is a delightful place. The staff is eager to share their knowledge of the history of the restaurant and the area. The awesome staff is truly the heart and soul of this restaurant.
I celebrated my 30th birthday with friends at Antoine’s this Saturday and it was an incredible experience. The food was almost as good as the ambiance. Ps. Make sure to take a walk around the restaurant after your meal - who knows what you’ll find or who will find you. ;)
This was a wonderful experience. The lunch specials are amazing. Must try the oysters
We had a wonderful dinner at Antoine’s. We were in New Orleans for a football weekend and had our 13 and 15 year old kids with us and they thought it was terrific as well. Our waiters took the time to explain the history of the restaurant to us and then after our meal escorted us on a tour of the entire restaurant! What a treat. Our meal was delicious - we ordered many classic dishes. The service was wonderful and that made our dining experience special.
What a joy to experience such a sense of place, history, and culinary delights!
We had a wonderful lunch and an amazing waiter who gave us all the history of the restaurant and treated us so special. We all had the lunch special and the food was delicious.
Celebrated our 55th Anniversary. Great time. Fabulous food and service. Thanks to all.
The wait staff was great and we enjoyed our visit to this historic restaurant.
Antoine's treated us like royalty, literally! We dined in the Rex Room, which is available for anybody whenever they'd like it, unless otherwise reserved by a member of the Krewe of Rex. So special.
We have eaten here before, and always enjoyed Antoine's. My husband and I live in New Orleans. However, on the most recent time dining here, we were hosting a family reunion - we had 24 in our group. Many family from the midwest, and some have never been to New Orleans, so it was a real treat to dine at Antoine's.
Special inside tip: Ask your waiter for a tour of the restaurant after your meal. The building is fascinating and full of history!
We had a great time for our anniversary. The food was amazing and we had great service. We even got a tour which made this a very special treat.
Outstanding food! And order the Baked Alaska when your order your dinner that is so delicious
As always, Antoine’s lives up to the outstanding cuisine with the $20.18 lunch special! The veal was wonderfully flavorful, and the service excellent as is usual!
The atmosphere at Antoine’s on a busy night is very noisy so I wouldn’t recommend it for a romantic Date night. Our server as too busy to really be very attentive. The food was very tasty though and my steak delicious. When asked about the dessert options our waiter omitted the Cherries Jubilee which I was really wanting to try. He listed every thing else on the menu. I know that it is a labor intensive dessert and a pain to serve on a busy night but still, it IS on the menu and should have been offered. It made me think that he did not want to go to the trouble of preparing that dessert, whether or not that was the case. The overall dining experience was on only average an a little disappointing for a restaurant with Antoine’s reputation.
The staff was wonderful and attentive. The food was disappointing and did not match the restaurant’s reputation.
Excellent service; wonderful atmosphere; imaginative menu; incredibly delicious creations; superb dining experience!
Lovely restaurant! The food was very good and the bread pudding was absolutely delicious! We had the oldest server at the restaurant (50 years) who was still in the game.
Evacuated from Panama City Beach to New Orleans due to Hurricane Michael. 3 course lunch special and tour at Antoine’s was one of the highlights of our weeks vacation. Service and food were great and we thoroughly enjoyed it!
