Creole
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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.
