Best Sunday Jazz Brunch in the city! Must visit every time!
Arnaud's continues to be the best overall traditional New Orleans dining experience. All dishes are as close to perfect, especially the soups! And most importantly, you recognize the flavors and aromas from your childhood. This does not happen in some of the competitive establishments which seem to get more publicity. The music for Sunday brunch could not be better nor more appropriate, with very careful consideration for privacy and interruption (by the way we were not interrupted a single time by ANY service personnel on this occasion. Charles when there assures a perfect experience, ambiance, and detail of service that we do not experience elsewhere. Congratulations on maintaining a priceless New Orleans dining tradition!
The wait staff was wonderfully attentive and friendly (especially Irvin and Mary). The food was great and the ambiance had a nice energy. Will definitely return.
Once again my wife and I enjoyed a wonderful evening at Arnaud’s. Started with excellent libations in the French 75 bar and then moved into dinner. My wife loved the oysters katherine and bananas foster, while I devoured the veal wohl and fresh asparagus. Wine with meal was excellent and overall price was well worth it. Was also very nice to visit with Katie and Archie, and Augie has put together a great team. We will definitely be back!
The meal was beyond excellence. The waitstaff were dressed better than we were. The service, food and ambiance were spot on! I will definitely dine there again on my next trip to NOLA.
Best experience of our five days of fine dining. Shout out to Shane. So personable.
My wife doesn't normally eat that much. In this case she ordered the lemon fish. Although she liked the taste, the portion was very small and she finished it with room for more. When I pointed this out to the maitre de he comped us a couple of drinks. My dish, which was pork tenderloin was good and there was an adequate quantity.
Had a great meal with grilled oysters, Trout & Red Fish. The Cafe Brulot was fantastic and quite a show.
Food was very good, music was great, service was very slow. Could have just been one of those nights
We had a great time, and a great experience. The food was delicious, the service was great, and the ambiance was unique!
Despite informing the restaurant of our 1 year anniversary celebration, no one acknowledged it. We even asked the maitre’d to send the band over to play us a song and they never came. We were there 2 hours and the band never even came close to our table.
When we were leaving, a hostess asked how our experience was. I told her how upset I was about the aforementioned and no one apologized, offered anything, nothing. They stood there staring at me. I turned away to sit in the bench while I waited for my husband to return and still no one attempted to communicate with me.
We flew to Nola from DC and Arnaud’s was our first stop. Never again.
Fantastic jazz brunch with exceptional service. Enjoyed.
An "energetic" noise level is a complete understatement.... sadly, it was almost as though we could have had a quieter experience with a table on Bourbon St. On the bright side, staff is great, food is as good as advertised, just super dissatisfied that you have to shout at your date so they hear you....
I was really looking forward to eating at this venerable institution. My food was lukewarm. The soufflé potatoes were also just warm. My dessert was eaten but never got the cappuccino. The bar makes it and they were behind. I wish they had held desserts. I just cancelled it. The staff were very warm and apologetic. I didn’t want to send my food back as it’s so disruptive. It was Saturday night and I think it was a timing issue.
Great meal and great service!
Classic N.O. restaurant. Great food and service.
Delicious restaurant and very nice atmosphere! Highly recommend when visiting New Orleans!
This restaurant is wonderful. Great service, ambiance, cocktails and of course food! Always a special experience. Enjoy!
A must try! Arnaud is a local gem in the heart of NOLA.
Fun time! Sunday jazz brunch.
Inaugural Drag Queen Brunch and Bey Day! Very lively, great ambiance, and delicious brunch fare. The always attentive service was not adversely affected by the splits and twirls👍🏻
I was here for Beyonce themed drag queen brunch and it was exceptional. The service was the best, the restaurant was beautiful, the food was to die for and the queens killed it.
Took the wife for anniversary and first time in NOLA . Thought the food was just ok and thought service was lacking . When the tea glass is empty and dinner not on table the waitress should not ask if I wanted more tea . Should have delivered another until dinner was complete. She brought appetizer which was soup but did t bring a spoon . Soup getting cold as she went to get spoon . The chairs are extremely uncomfortable and small table with table legs hitting your legs. They might have been in business for 100 years but better choices out there. Ruth Chris much better quality !!
A great place for a special occasion. One of the must visit restaurants in NOLA.
We had a wonderful experience! The service in the dining room was probably the best service I ever had. So attentive and very nice. Food was amazing. Atmosphere beautiful. A wonderful way to spend our last night in NOLA as we had to head home early to face s hurricane.
Extraordinary Dining Experience
Excellent service and food 100% would recommend
It was my birthday and I went with my boyfriend and my dad. The wait staff was the best! Very attentive and kind.
I always enjoy the escargot here. It is plumb, buttery and garlicky. I have to say I was not impressed by the potato souffle, it was like eating a giant, air-filled french fry. The asparagus were plentiful, crisp, yet properly tender, too. The hollandaise was creamy with a hint of lemon. The Pompano David was nicely prepared, cooked, but tender and flaky. Next time, don't use so much red pepper flake in the seasoning, it built too quickly and put me off of it half way through. The Duck Ellen is always a treat and the blueberry sauce always compliments it. The chunk of bread pudding we were served was far too large for one person. The whiskey sauce was very tasty and is the best part of that dessert. When the table says that only one is having dessert, believe us. We wasted half the thing because they served us enough for two and my dining partner did not eat it. Finally, the wait staff was wonderful, despite the overage on dessert. They were attentive, gave us answers to our questions and disappeared when the meal was served.
Outstanding in every way. Bananas Foster was the best ever!!
Wonderful old world charm. Outstanding focus on service. Amazing food. Jazz brunch was perfect!
Excellent choice and outstanding quality of service. The only reason I don't give 5 stars is that the noise level is too high for a romantic diner
Can't tell you how much I love this place! This was my second time dining here and it was just as amazing as the first. Food is always spot on and the ambiance makes this place. One of our servers took us upstairs on a private tour of the place. Everything is great about this place and it is a must go to if you are in New Orleans!! I know I will be back for sure!
We had a wonderful meal, service and time for our 1st visit. We definitely will come back!!
It was wonderful as always!! Great service, fabulous food, perfect ambiance!! Classic NOLA
Living of old glory
Everything was great about our evening except our waiter. He was rather rude, never explained the menu and always seemed to be put off The rest of the wait staff was great just our waiter. Food was really good.
Loved this restaurant! Service was impeccable and food was delicious. We went for my husbands birthday. I wouldn’t bring kids, the food is for the mature palette and they certainly wouldn’t appreciate it.
We will definitely come back.
wonderful experience all around. will be bac k soon
Excellent food and atmosphere and very accommodating with selecting the best meal given some food restrictions. Love it!
