The menu had changed since the last time we ate here and some of my favorite items were no longer available or made the same. I was bummed about that, however, the food was still very good.

The food was over cooked and had small portions. The prices were high and quality below average for a New Orleans restaurant. Very disappointed.

Everything was delicious especially the charbroiled oysters!! They were big and done just right. Not too much seasoning. I thought they were better than Drago’s both the Metairie and French quarter location. Their happy hour is a must. The service and staff were great!

The restaurant didn't have my OpenTable reservation so they had to scramble to get me a table. The place is very noisy and I felt the waiter rushed us. Also, the menu was far too limiting and there was only 1 or 2 keto friendly options.

Steak was dry and shrimp and grits was very salty. Hostess did not check us in for our reservation hence we were reported as a no no show. Between food service and expense would not return.

The duck poppers were amazing. The shrimp cocktail was gross. Whole shrimp, not deveined, impossible to peel, sent back twice, finally gave up. Steak was meh. Grits and green beans were decent. Dessert was tiny and wayyyy overpriced.

Borgne used to be one of my “go to” restaurants, but the new menu lacks the old favorites like the turkey neck app, thefish in a bag, and Ponchartrain pasta. I ordered the redfish on the half shell it was under seasoned and over cooked. Service was excellent. Overall, no longer worth the drive downtown.

Real disappointment dining here on a Sunday night before the Pink concert. Waited half hour for a glass of wine, over an hour for food that was cold and not tasty. The waitress tried her best but the kitchen was totally dysfunctional. Menu has been reduced to half of what it previously was and is no longer interesting or original. Will be finding a new place to eat pre-events. Totally awful.

Worst service I’ve ever had. The only people helping us were the managers, the service staff did not help us one bit. Had a reservation for 6:15, was seated at 6:45. We immediately placed our order with the manager who was helping us and our food came out an hour and 15 minutes later. Our waiter got to us 30 minutes after we had sat down while we watched other people being helped. Will not come back.

Food was too salty. The waiter brought the food out inconsistently and frequently forgot things. The appetizers were really good, but the entrees were not. The food is not kid friendly, nor is the the service.

Borgne is always a go-to when in New Orleans- Like always. I’ve ordered everything I had today on previous visits. Nothing was as I’ve experienced it in the past. I will chalk it up to a bad day and hope the next time is up to standard.

The service was horrible, the oysters were tiny for the price. We went during happy hour and had to ask 3 times for a happy hour menu. Once we finally received the menu we ordered drinks from the menu and it took 15-20 mins to get the drinks. We were then charged full price! Waiter was terrible- the hostess was the only good part!!

My wife and I both order a 3 course Valentine "special" deal for $45 each plus a bottle of wine. Waiter was friendly and courteous initially. Appetizer was great, however, my wife ordered shrimp and grits and grits were cold. I ordered my ribeye medium and it came out medium rare to rare. When it was time for dessert (and we both ordered the same thing (Hot cherry tart in a coffee cup with some kind of bran on top ), the waiter only brought one dessert out instead of both. We had to wait almost 10 minutes for the second dessert to arrive because there were no more available. We also ordered coffee. The waiter brought the coffee in paper "go" cups and said there were no more regular coffee cups available (probably because they were being used for the cherry tart dessert!). Not only that, AFTER he drops off the coffee does he ask if we wanted cream, instead of bringing it with the coffee! We said of course we want cream! The waiter disappeared and it took almost another 10 minutes to get the cream--in fact I asked another waiter if she would bring the cream! Finally, I noticed our waiter got a table with about 10 people seated at it right after we received our entre. After that I knew our service was going to be toast--and it was.

Food was great, very cool ambiance. They were out of one of the appetizers we wanted but it wasn’t a big deal. Food took longer than expected to come out. Think there was a mix up with what my wife and daughter ordered but when everything came out it was as we ordered it. I would definitely recommend it.
