We waited over an hour for food. Servers ignored our table. Our bread guy was the only one who took the time to ask us if we were doing ok. Servers were incredibly rude. Even after I informed him that we had waited almost hour for menus, he didn't check on our table. Terrible experience.

My review remains the same, best gumbo and French 75 in New Orleans. The duck with blueberry sauce was delicious. Best wait staff in town.

Fantastic experience all around. Jasper took excellent care of us, and Irina did a great job on the flambé station (Bananas Foster and Café Brûlot). Perfect ambiance and low noise level, even though we sat next to the jazz band at brunch. Highly recommended!

The reservation was to celebrate my spouse 59th birthday. We both have dined at Arnaud's in the past and always had great service and the food is outstanding. During our dinning experience the waiter brought us a bottle of wine as we requested and after that we were invisible for 1 hour and 15 minutes, one of our table guest went to go find a wait staff for assistant and we continued to wait. We noticed the 3 team waitstaff was focusing more on the round tables than the square tables. Finally my spouse "the birthday person" went to the host and informed the lady we haven't been waited on to place our appetizer or entree. Within a few seconds we had 3 waitstaff taking our food order. Unfortunately, I felt bad for my spouse that we did not have the inconsistent service and I had to apologize to two of my guest for the poor service.

My husband and I made reservations here for our last night in New Orleans. We also were celebrating my birthday. Doug, our table Captain, along with Alhenry and Michael were wonderful. The food was delicious as well. We will definitely dine here on our next visit to New Orleans.

As always my favorite place! Still the best French 75 and gumbo in New Orleans. Love they are doing a small baked Alaska. It’s peppermint and I’ve never been a fan of peppermint but the chocolate sauce was delicious I forgot it was peppermint ice cream! We had the shrimp creole and fish ponchatrain, both excellent.

The service was impeccable and the food was great. It was true fine dining within the hubbub of the French Quarter. Unlike many restaurants in the Quarter, Arnold’s is not a tourist trap looking to gouge unsuspecting out-of-owners.

I enjoyed a French 75, the restaurant’s signature drink, followed by the shrimp bisque, the filet mignon Charlemond and the Mississippi mud pie. I would recommend all of the dishes. My only regret is not trying the oysters or any of the other gulf dishes.

We were back in a room so very quiet. I rated the food low because the medium and medium rare steaks were way over done. My steak was well done and was supposed to be medium. My daughter in laws was medium well and she ordered medium rare. With the amount of people at the table we didn't want to send them back.

We arrived early for our dinner reservation so we sat in "The French 75 Bar" for an appetizer and drink. The Tuxedo #2 cocktail was amazing and our snapper and drum fish dinners were delicious. Every table has three rotating waiters/waitresses; service incomparable. Highly recommend.

From the time you enter the door, from check in to table seating, through entire dinner, there is no better staff. Hands down the best. The make you feel like part of the family. A few of the other “Old New Orleans” restaurants should take notes. Delicious food, best chicken and sausage gumbo in the city. Same for their French 75.

If you’re a vegetarian it is harder to eat, but the vegetables and salads are pretty good. The soufflé potatoes are amazing and you need to order them and enjoy them with a drink, French 75 is personal recommendation. Though my favorite was the Cafe Brulot at the end of the night!

Our whole experience was marvelous from start to finish! Sean, the maitre d' was terrific! He took care of us in both cocktail lounges and made sure we were pleased. Our dinner was outstanding with every detail met. Loved this restaurant immensely and it was our favorite in NOLA. We highly recommend this restaurant.
