Borgne is always tops, this time for lunch! Red beans and rice, along with the pork chop, were delicious. Always consistent quality and service at Borgne.

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!!

Well we got there at 8 and y’all were out of the Valentines Special. The service was not very good by y’all’s usual standard but it was Valentines Day so the staff was probably was overworked since y’all were busy.

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.

The service was impeccable! Drinks were good. Food was disappointing; it seemed to have changed drastically since the last time I was there about two years ago. Bacon on duck poppers was almost raw.

This is the second time I’ve been there and both times the service has been absolutely horrible. Each time we sat with dishes in front of us while waiting for our next course which took over an hour. When it came out it came out cold. I gave it a second chance but will never go back, there are too many other great restaurants in the city to patronize.

We were staying at the Hyatt Regency and came down for dinner one night. Most of our food was very good. I was disappointed in my fish in a bag as it seemed dry and over cooked, however the manager rectified that by removing it from our check which we appreciated. The energy level in the restaurant is very good, wait staff were curious and our main waitress was very kind and accommodating as we are an eclectic group which includes a vegetarian. We would highly recommend this restaurant if you are staying in the hotel!

This was my first time at Borgne, and I had high expectations set by the other Besh restaurants I have had the pleasure to eat at. Unfortunately, Borgne left much to be desired. The service was sub par and extremely slow, even though the restaurant seemed quite empty. For example, it took 35 minutes from the time we finished eating to the time our server brought the check. During this time our table was never cleared and coffee/desserts were not offered. Getting a fresh cocktail was also a chore, which probably contributed to the overall mood of the table. As far as the price was concerned ....The food was good, but not great. Definitely not worth the price point especially considering the horrible service. While I cannot wait to go back to some of the other BRG establishments the next time I am in New Orleans, I will not be returning to Borgne.

My sister and I came to eat at Borgne because we had been there before . At that time we ate the stuffed crab which were excellent. This time we were so dissatisfied because the stuffed crabs had been removed from the menu. You have lost 2 paying customers by removing them. We won’t eat at Borgne again!!!

Place was empty on a Sunday evening, so no problem getting a table & service was good. Fish in a bag was good, but didn't blow me away for $28.00. I was glad I wasn't super hungry, because it was a small portion. It was nice to also get a small loaf of bread with the meal.

Friendly service but the food was subpar. I usually don’t expect a lot from hotel restaurants but living in Nola, they have quite a few good ones. This did not live up to those expectations. I do not plan to visit the place for food anytime soon. May would consider for drinks and oysters.

Ebony was our server for a pre-Saints game meal. She was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed gumbo and the burger, which we split. Their Bloody Mary was a delicious blend of Zing Zang and Tito’s with olives and marinated green beans...just the right amount of heat. It was packed and we had great, fast, efficient service as well as delicious food. We love going there for pregame fun and food.
