Just when I thought customer service was dead we stepped into a portal back in time, where guests are greeted with delight and service isn’t just a way to earn 20%, but an actual profession. We were greeted by no less than 4 staff members at Arnauds before we sat down and between our server and 2 wait assists and the manager we could not have been wanting for a thing.
To top it off the food is delicious, the shrimp bisque and duck breast are a must and the soufflé potatoes we’re a fun twist on the classic side of potatoes.
DO NOT MISS the table side bananas foster, lots of fun and again another shining example of impeccable service.

The 3 course lunch was delicious as expected. The live traveling Jazz trio heightened the brunch. James our back server was hilarious , and Kayla kept the good bread coming.

The Jazz Brunch had a prix fixe menu. The appetizers (shrimp bisque and shrimp Arnauld) were great. My main course, crab cheesecake, must have been reheated in the microwave; it was a mixture of room temperature and plain cold, which was disappointing given the price. The jazz was fun, and the waitstaff was attentive. Some of the wait staff’s black uniforms were quite dirty and unkept, which was noticeable since this restaurant bills itself as a white tablecloth, fine dining establishment. Our reservation was at the restaurant’s opening for the day, so it wasn’t the result of a hard shift.

Service was reasonable buy the staff seemed somewhat inexperienced. Food was served at the appropriate temperature and was delicious.

Several large groups were dining and the noise was excessive. It detracted from the dining experience.

Wine list had solid offerings at multiple price levels.

Words do not do it justice! Wow what amazing flavors and the service impeccable and a smooth and warm operation. Reservations were for 8 and was seated immediately. The food and sauces were impeccable. Tried several nice restaurants over the weekend and this by far was the absolute best.

So happy Arnaud’s is open. We’ve been going there for decades and we’re able to be part of the ‘first dining room’ after COVID. Food was glorious-especially the stuffed mushrooms, shrimp Arnaud, the pompano and the veal. Service was impeccable. If you have just one fine dining opportunity in New Orleans, make it Arnaud’s.

This was a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend Arnaud's jazz brunch for anyone wanting a romantic setting with excellent food! we also took advantage of the bar next-door- with the best drinks we had during our weekend in New Orleans- and the free museum upstairs full of vintage mardi gras dresses! We both had a three course meal and paid around $100.00! The music was perfect and the staff was very attentive!

Augie the maitre d’ was very accommodating and kind. It was our one year anniversary and Arnaud’s was my grandfathers favorite restaurant. We really appreciate Arnauds accommodating us as well as they did. The food was extraordinary—the filet mignon one of the best I’ve had—and the service impeccable. Ryan the bartender was particularly exceptional. Thank you! -Lee Ann Knox and Floyd Ray

The food was very disappointing. The waiters were rude and didn’t have control over the volume of their voices. It sounded like they were yelling over a crowd but the restaurant was not loud. I would not recommend eating here.

We really enjoyed and appreciated the private dining area as our group was a bit loud at times. Our servers were top notch and the food was excellent. Arnauds proved to be the right choice for our celebration.
