Legend has it that Collinet, French King Louis Phillipe's (reign 1830-1848) chef unintentionally created soufflé potatoes by plunging already fried potatoes into extremely hot oil to reheat them when the King arrived late for dinner one night. To the Chef's surprise and the king's delight, the potatoes puffed up like little balloons. We hope that you will be equally delighted. Served with Béarnaise Sauce
The food as always is amazing! Delectable platters with many options catered to dietary needs. The food came out in timely manner as well. One thing that threw my table off guard was the service. The busser was rude, disrespectful, and passive aggressive. I would expect from a high end restaurant at Arnaud’s I would have the service I pay for.
Lovely from start to finish. Greeted warmly, seated quickly and with friendly enthusiasm. Service was perfectly timed without any sense of being rushed. You are served by a team who are attentive without being intrusive, and are very observant.
Outstanding! Service , food, experience!
Service and food were fantastic for Sunday brunch. 3 course meal and portions were just right.
Could not recommend more highly - was perfect! Customer service, food, ambiance = phenomenal!
Was recommended to us and went on a Saturday night. Chicken was excellent as was shrimp creole appetizer. But it was so loud we could hardly hear each other sitting close.
Birthday dinner was fantastic!
Wonderful as usual. Taking a chance because we happened to be in the area, we arrived more than an hour ahead of our reservation. Even the bar wasn't quite open yet. But the people at the reception invited us to take a brief tour of the Arnaud's museum upstairs, which was interesting. The bar was soon ready and for a while we had it to ourselves -- a great treat and luxury. after 45 minutes there, we were seated for dinner and once again the servers were both elegant and friendly. All the Arnaud's house specialties are still on the menu and we enjoyed several. Old New Orleans lives -- and you don't have to fight your way up Bourbon Street to get there. Royal and Dauphin work too!
My husband and I vacation in New Orleans regularly. We book a table at Arnauds every time we are in town. We have found no other restaurant that surpasses Arnaud’s, in our opinion after trying so me of the competition. The food, the service, the overall experience are all special. Don’t miss the Oyster assortment appetizer or the turtle soup!
Food was amazing and had a flaming coffee drink for dessert.
Great experience. Food, service atmosphere….all wonderful.
We had an amazing meal. The soups, turtle and gumbo, were divine. Fish and filet cooked perfectly full of flavor. All the sauces, top notch. Our only issue was that the server seemed to make clear he cared for other tables than ours. He visited other table 6-9 times in the time he visited ours once. We were one of the youngest couples there, so it felt as if he did not care to ensure we had the same experience. It led to ordering only one round of drinks, no dessert, and no bottle of wine that we normally have and instead just a glass because we were almost done with our meal when he returned. He was very polite, helpful, and the remaining staff was very attentive. But, it did put a bit of a damper noting that the other tables were well attended to and trying to catch his attention to keep the meal going.
Such an amazing experience. Exactly what you want and expect dining in the French Quarter. Every detail solid. Old Southern dining at its finest. Do yourself a favor and book a reservation ASAP. Service is outstanding. I won't forget this dining experience.
Service was not good. Did not even bring bread. And one of us had soup!
Food not bad, service a bit haphazard, room cold and loud
We love this restaurant! Service and quality of food is always amazing!
Everything was amazing- the atmosphere, the food, the service, the JAZZ, the cocktails! We were here for Sunday Brunch after coming for dinner two years ago. Could not have enjoyed ourselves more!
Great food and service. Will be back next time in town.
What an amazing dining experience. So happy we decided to go to Arnaud's in NOLA. We tried the Chef's Menu and every dish was special. Everything from the simple presentation to amazing flavors. Our waiter Doug was a pleasure as was the entire staff. The Maitre' D' - Charles was charming and very welcoming stopping by our table to ask how we were doing. I can't wait to get back to NOLA and Arnaud's. A taste of elegance and history.
Outstanding dinner for four. Service was superior and food was Delicious. Our table explored the escargot and the pompano to begin. The filets, speckled trout and pompano meunière. Cocktails, bananas foster, and cafe brule completed the adventure. Will definitely go again. Conversation was more difficult as the room filled, but everything was excellent.
Loved the food and our captain and crew did a wonderful job!
This was a magnificent experience in fine dining. After eating here, the other places just do not compare. Impeccable food and service.
Loved our experience - fabulous service and atmosphere.
The food is elegantly prepared and portioned. The service impeccable! We first dined at Arnaud's 40 years ago and make it a stop whenever possible.
Another wonderful meal at Arnaud’s. We have Og&e go every time we are in town!
Love brunch at Arnauds. Of course kick off with French 75, followed by best gumbo in the city. Crab cakes always a hit. Staff is top notch, remember things their customers like. Wish every day was brunch at Arnauds!
Amazing food, service and atmosphere. Crabmeat cheesecake was fantastic. Cafe brulot is a must do!
Great job! Wonderful decor staff and experience will come again
Took friends to brunch. Everything was superb as usual!
Food was delicious and service was great !
If you are looking for a special place with fantastic food, service and atmosphere, this is it.
Classic NOLA dining experience, as expected. Good wine list with some bargains to be found if you know wine.
Amazing Sunday Brunch. Don't miss this. Service is 5 star. Jasper was great.
Date night with my husband. We had a wonderful meal and the service was top notch. The crab claws are a must have and the martinis were perfectly dirty.
Food, service and choices of food were excellent.
It was great. My husband was able to speak to Chef Tommy and get an off-menu entree.
Excellent as always. We were there for a birthday brunch. The food and service were wonderful. There were six of us and each of our three course meals came out perfect, and at the same time. The service was great, friendly and professional. The jazz trio made the meal even better. We'll be back soon
We are here during jazz brunch. Everything was amazing. The musicians were fantastic. Excellent service and great food. I love the old school charm.
Fantastic serve and ambiance. You would never know you were feet from bourbon st
