Arnaud’s is a New Orleans classic. I’ve visited many times over the years and just love it! It’s a friendly and lively place filled with good vibes, great food, and great service. Get a French 75 and enjoy your meal!

Arnauds was the highlight of our trip which included Commanders Palace. It was a perfect blend of French and New Orleans. The adjoining French 75 bar was enjoyable too.

Arnaud's always exceeds expectations. Whether dining with a group, or just a couple, Arnaud's is one of my favorite spots for a fancy dinner in New Orleans. Wait staff was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in picking out an "out of my comfort zone" dinner, and the table-side bananas foster is a must-have.

This is a tough one to review. I’m happy we got the experience of eating at the famous Arnaud’s, but it will be our one and only time. The food is not memorable. The only thing that was good was the French 75 and the escargot. Don’t bother ordering the soufflé potatoes, they are boring double fried French fries- don’t fall for the description of their history. Everything ordered at our table of 4, was bland. Some jazz background music would have been nice in the main dining hall instead of nothing at all.

Awful! We had an 8:00 reservation and the room was so loud we had to reach across the table to hear each other. Appetizer was fine but the filet mignon was rad when it should have been medium rare. The took the steak to cook it some more but by then all the juices had run out and I was left with s piece of dry meat. It was our first and will be last time there.

We have had great service before but tonight was not a good experience. Our server never poured wine after she opened the bottle and poured the first glass. We had to get the attention of other servers to order more bread and drinks for the table. Our server was mostly MIA. Just a big disappointment.

My husband and I went here for dinner during mardi gras trip. As expected, the ambience and service were superb. The food itself was amazing. We had oysters, alligator chicken, shrimp bisque, and other 2 main courses. They were all amazing as you would expect from a hi-end restaurant that has been open for a hundred year (since 1918). The price is on the pricey side but it’s an experience that you won’t regret.

During Mardi gras, at the bar, they have special called carnival colada, it was delicious. If you come during this crazy holiday, you should try it.

We were treated very badly by the staff. We are 3 young women and ordered drinks and gumbo and an appetizer. We don’t eat a lot in general and that was plenty of food. The waitstaff seemed very upset that we did not order more food. Restaurants with historical reputations should be wary of riding on that success. In a competitive culinary environment, service like this will begin to have a serious effect as people move to more interesting and welcoming dining experiences.
