    The minute we walked in the door we were NOT greeted. In spite of our reservation, the hostess told us to wait “awhile”for a table to be cleared, then greeted the couple behind us, w/o a reservation and started to show them to a table. Were they younger, yes. Were they better dressed, no. They were tourists in athletic wear. I spoke up, and another hostess said seat them (us) first. Once something like this occurs it colors the rest of the meal. We have a second home in New Orleans and this treatment means we will never return. There are too many better places with exemplary service. I suggest Galatoires if you care about food, service and atmosphere.

    My previous experiences at this restaurant were always very good however my experience this time left a lot to be desired. Service was quite disappointing. Couldn't get refills on drinks all evening. Our main waiter seemed to ignore our table most of the time. Our salad option was so salty we couldn't eat it. Then I ordered the filet mignon oscar and they forgot to put the crab on it. We ordered asparagus and it never arrived. We then ordered 2 bananas foster's for 2 and only one was prepared. We were a table of four and this dessert is prepared for 2 so we had to share it by four people. Although the head waiter constantly apologized for the poor service it did not make us feel any better. I was entertaining a client and had bragged about this exquisite restaurant and boy was it a flop and embarrassing for me as a business owner

    Did not entirely live up to expectations: Food was really good, service was hit and miss, and was unexpectedly noisy; One of our guests doesn’t drink alcohol and the sever brought out an alcoholic cocktail which he almost drank, we ordered extra glasses of wine to pair with our dinner- only one glass arrived and it was well after we had finished our main courses. Besides that, our servers were pleasant and food was great.

    Great jazz brunch! Quite the spectacle, and totally indulgent and fun. A little bobble with an order, but letting it role seemed to be the way to go, and I'm glad I did. Fancy and fun if that's what you're looking for.

    An exceptional dinner celebrating a friend's birthday. One server was new and did not understand the request for a tequila and soda, but the manager bought us desserts, which we thought was a nice gesture. Incredible filet and pompano duarte. Steer clear of the cafe brulot. We enjoyed the table side preparation of it but not the taste. This is classic new orleans restaurant and worth a visit .

    This place is incredible, the main dinning room is a good size but the place itself is incredible it has over 10 dining rooms, halls decorated with pictures of the previous generation owners, showcase with dresses, tiaras and hats. It has a balcony over Bourbon street it’s absolutely fabulous. If possible and available I recommend touring the facility after dinner.

    Still the best gumbo in New Orleans. Service is beyond compare, it’s a great evening to dress beyond your yoga pants and flip flops and enjoy New Orleans cuisine and service. Steaks don’t need a steak knife so tender. Veal is superb. Kids plate of fried shrimp made me want to order for myself! Strawberries are delicious this time of year and perfect for dessert.

    A beautiful old piece of New Orleans! The entire space is just gorgeous, from the intricate tile floors to the wood paneling. However, it feels like the food was left in the past as well - we found it pretty bland, except for the souffle potatoes. Our bread and drink waiters were delightful, and our main server was professional but really dull, which is usually not the case in New Orleans. I absolutely love the French 75 Bar, so from now on I'll go back there and get souffle potatoes with a drink.

    Did the Sunday jazz brunch. Service was a bit disappointing - asked for eggs Benedict without bacon - it came with bacon anyway. Asked for Belgian waffle without fruit - came with it anyway. Server couldn’t get the bananas foster to flame. My eggs Benedict was good - but my wife’s shrimp dish was way over cooked (eggs hard) and the shrimp arnaud app was tasty but served chilled (I’m sure that was intended, but surprising to us and it would have been much better hot). We’ve done the jazz brunch before - but for $250 for 4 this will likely be our last time.

    Sunday Brunch - this was recommended by several locals. I was underwhelmed. The service was great and they were very attentive. The chicken gumbo and turtle soup were the star of the show. Otherwise, I can’t remember what else we got because it wasn’t great

    Arnaud's was good, but our high expectations for a fine dining experience were not met. The food was excellent and the waitstaff were attentive and friendly, but the overall experience fell short. The dining was brightly lit and noisy at 9:00 PM on a Saturday night. The tables are smallish and close together and the chairs are cheap and uncomfortable (the sort you would expect in pizza parlor). There were smaller shortcomings, too, such as the simple silverware (no butter knife, for example). The wine list was good, but not great--I found something we liked at a reasonable price, but there was no offer of assistance. Again, the food and service were good, but not up to expecations or the price point.

    If you’re reading this, and thinking about booking it, do it! You will not be disappointed! Make sure that you get the oyster sampler for an appetizer! The service was old school high end restaurant service that I have an experienced in a very long time! From the time you enter, sitting down, ordering and working with the team members it’s not just amazing food it’s a dining experience! 10 out of 10.

    The oldest New Orleans' restaurant offered an underwhelming average street vendor quality Creole fare. The best dish was crab claws Provencale, which were robust in butter and garlic sauce. Sweetbreads Sins were underwhelming at best as the medallions were fried patties that might as well have been crab meat, ground chicken, or something else rather indistinct. The frog legs were tasty and crunchy and moist, and Provencale sauce helped complete this dish. Oh and the turtle soup was a masqueraded and superb turkey chili. Why offer it as a turtle soup is puzzling. We skipped deserts choosing Fernet on ice. The deep unadulterated bitterness of this digestif made the experience oddly satisfying. The staff was polite and pleasant but overwhelmed by noise levels, too many patrons, and insufficient training. The Arnold restaurant has entered the age of senility, old glory is faintly recognizable but is gone, gone, gone.
