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.

Sunday brunch so disappointing!!!!! Thought we would be having a jazz brunch with a great vibe. Not at all! The jazz band moves from one room to another. We were seated in area I would call the white room and the band played 3 songs before going on break. The food is ok I got eggs Benedict over artichokes. For the price it’s was ok I was disappointed that this didn’t even come with a side for $20 eggs that was mediocre. The service was horrible for having two waiters my drink was empty for 20 mins and I would have probably ordered 2 more but at this point I just wanted to leave because the JAZZ was not good and the service and ambiance in that room were not like the pictures. The other room looked a lot nicer. Do not waste your time or money for brunch, there are so many other places.

Went for jazz brunch! The ambiance was nice but the food wasn’t as amazing as expected. Also note, the baked Alaska is not flamed table side, and could feed about 6 people.

Very disappointed overall with this restaurant. Service was extremely slow (waited 15 minutes just to get a server to first come to the table, while we could see several servers just standing around). Table was tiny for our party of four, but could see several other parties of two at much bigger tables than ours. (And we had a reservation, so it wasn’t like we just dropped in.) Questions about entrees not answered very well. Ordered a Baked Alaska for dessert & was stunned to find out when it arrived that they did the flambé in the back cooking area before it arrived at the table. Overall the food was tasty, but entire experience was a bit ruined by the poor service.

I'm taking away a star because they originally seated us at a table across from the bar and restroom - in an almost-empty restaurant. The bar was so loud we couldn't hear ourselves think. The waiter moved us as soon as we said something, though, and everything was perfect after that - the food and the service were very good.

Outstanding from A to Z. We were lucky to have Sterling (53 years of service) as our waiter and Chris as his assistant. Chris is an outstanding waiter in his own right. The Alligator Soup was phenomenal.

Overall, our experience was good. Was disappointed to see that the lunch menu was not available the day of our reservation (5/18) and this was not known to me before arriving to the restaurant. I would have appreciated knowing that given that was part of the reason I chose the restaurant. Regardless, the experience was still nice.

Meh. It was fine. Hard to fully rate the food as all we had were apps and dessert. Escargot was ok, crab au gratin was delish. Chocolate cake with raspberry filling was ok.

Our waiter seemed really annoyed that all we wanted was a couple of appetizers and drinks. It’s extremely loud and busy. Wait staff hustling and bustling all about. None of them seemed very happy... all business. In fact, watching them and their apparent stress level was stressful for me.

Food and service very good, but with early reservation we were put in front of house. Lacking ambiance, increased noise. Server invited us to walk back to other dining rooms, maybe just to show what we COULD have had. Wifes crab meal was difficult to eat, amounted to little food.

Very good food, but we had no idea that we would be seated in a resort size dining hall with hundreds of diners and deafening noise. When you enter Antoine’s from the street, you see a classic, small dining room. We ate lunch there years ago and the ambiance was great. This visit at dinner, we and everyone else were led through a door to an arena size, red wall acre of tables, and other rooms were visible further back! Again, the food was quite good, but nothing could overcome the arena atmosphere.

The history and ambiance speak for themselves at Antoine’s, but the food was very disappointing. The charred oysters were good, but the gulf fish and sides were mediocre at best. Average taste quality, poor presentation and the potatoes au gratin were hard, under cooked and tasteless as was the broccoli with Hollandaise. We took a business associate here and we were all very disappointed.

The service at this restaurant is outstanding. Very attentive and friendly staff. Our drinks never went dry. Had the charred oysters; for someone that does not care for oysters, I was pleasantly surprised. These were amazing. Soft shell crabs for dinner were so delicious!!! The history of this restaurant is captivating and the owner took the time to introduce himself to us and share the stories of this wonderful hotspot! I highly recommend this gem in the heart of the French Quarter.

Lovely birthday treat for my husband and a check off of his bucket list. Good selection of appetizers, entrees, and desserts. Side dishes like potatoes and asparagus were shareable and portions were generous. We also enjoyed the Hermès bar and will stop by again sometime for the daiquiris recommended by our server.

The location and the history of this restaurant far out reach their culinary skills. The waiter and his helper/trainee were excellent and professional. The food came out and we were all underwhelmed. Poorly cooked fish, over cooked side dishes and the desert was a disaster. Could be we just picked all the wrong stuff and your experience might be much better. For us this was a no return location and on our never do again list.

We went for Mother’s Day. My choice. The hostess was lovely, as was the gentleman who showed us to our seats. Gregory was our head waiter and was wonderful. Very cordial and attentive, as was his assistant. We started woth the potatoes soufflé (a must) and charbroiled oysters. The oysters were about a 6/10. My son loved his kids chicken and potatoes while my husband ordered the crawfish bisque only ( saving room for the baked Alaska). I had the petite filet woth Marchand de vin. My steak was cooked perfectly and not fatty or grisly, however, it was bland and the sauce was underwhelming. And at $42 (4oz.) it was a la cart. My husband was also disappointed in his choice of soup, not their fault, and Gregory promptly brought out a bowl of seafood gumbo to my husband’s delight. We finished with the baked Alaska. How could we not? The experience was wonderful overall and will not hold the steak against them. I still recommend and will continue to come back. There’s a reason they’re still open after all these years.

Drove an hour and a half to have my wife’s birthday dinner there. It wasn’t too busy, but we were incredibly rushed. Very poorly paced meal. We sat at 8:30. Our meal arrived at 8:40. Literally 10 min in and this “fine dining experience” felt half over. This was really odd since we had ordered the Baked Alaska, which needed the entire mealtime to be prepared. The grilled fish almond is was really greasy, but that could just be me. The real problem was that our Baked Alaska took an extra half hour after we finished our meal. So instead of pacing it out, we were rushed, then bored. Also, while being sat and later while going to the restroom I night knocked into by several servers. It was like they were all running through the place without regard to guests. The final straw was after the waiter finally presented our Baked Alaska, he quickly removed it, took it to the back, then a different person returned with two sloppy, messy scoops of what was supposed to be our show stopping desert. It looked like it was scooped out off of a buffet line. It looked horrible. By this time, it was just too negative to complain. Giving the experience 2 stars is being nice.

Our waiter actually showed us around the restaurant when we showed interest in the building although it was evening and the place busy.
The wait staff was excellent ,the only person who seemed disinterested in everything was the gentleman at the front desk.
