    Excellent dining experience. The grilled Oysters five ways was surprising, like we were sure what was what (due to our own ignorance)😬. Fish was fantastically fresh. Food was sophisticated and lightly seasoned. My husband and I took a chance on this place as first timers to NO. It was a nice experience and very old school setting right on Bourbon Street. The food was good, service was great.

    Everything was cooked to perfection, and the service team was exceptional! We loved everything. Everyone made sure to stop by the table and ask us how we were enjoying, but absolutely not to the point of annoying. It truly felt as though they genuinely cared about our experience. After our meal, they took us on a guided tour upstairs of the dining rooms and Mardi Gras queens of past. Truly a spectacular place, and this will become an every trip stop.

    I expected to be blown away. Food was ok, our waiter was not very good. We felt like we didn’t get better service because we didn’t order more. The woman who took care of our drinks however was fantastic! We had to wait twice for silverware and waited for long periods of time before we were even asked how things were or if we wanted anything else. We were disappointed in the entire experience.

    Food was disappointing. Shrimp app had more sauce than shrimp. All three orders of crab cakes were dry, hard, and cold. SautĂ©ed ( fried) fish heavy on sauce and wafer thin filet, thus no taste. Cocktails good. Service very attentive and professional. Dessert was average. Sat us in corner near kitchen and bathrooms because we had part of six. Should have tipped someone to get better table. Was hoping it wouldn’t be a tourist trap: heavy on ambiance and show bit light on food quality. Over priced.

Kyle was our server and Mallory was our drink server - both outstanding and friendly, no stuffiness whatsoever! We will definitely return! P.S. Make reservations at least two weeks prior - we lucked out barely reserving 2 days prior. Clint and Larry from Houston

    Excellent service. My entree, wine and blueberry infused duck was excellent. My wife's chicken was a little salty. I also ordered shrimp bisque soup. It was not anything special. I would not order it again. The wine was a little over priced, and there was a limited selection of wine by the glass.

    We had a great time at Arnaud’s. The food was great! We especially loved the pompano fish with tomatoes. Our approach to the menu was to try as many things as possible so we informed the waiter we intended to split everything and he arranged for the kitchen to plate everything already split! That was very thoughtful and appreciated as we would have dripped sauce all over the tablecloths otherwise. Mallory was fantastic waitstaff. I am ready to go back just to chat with her.
