Had the Gull fish with Caribbean jelly. It was Delicious!
Not a great experience, disappointing first meal while here.
Service was not quite as good as last visit. Menu selection was more limited than previously, possibly due to covid19. Still had a good time though, love the place!
By far the best seafood I have ever had. Everything was fantastic. The Charbroiled oysters were amazing and the service was excellent!! Will definitely be back!
The Alligator is a must have meal. The redfish was delish, but the gator was devine.
We went for my father in law’s 71st birthday and for coolinary. Our waiter Jeremy was Fantastic!!! I highly recommend the charbroiled oysters and their signature Bourbon Milk Punch.
Great experience excellent service!
They were good on social distancing. We went for a late reservation so there weren’t a lot of people there. George was awesome and very attentive. I had an old fashion and it was pretty robust. The features Manhattan was pretty good as well.
My husband and I went to the Bourbon House for lunch on Wednesday. The waitress was good and my problem is not with her.
Since we are retired and on a fixed income, we looked at their menu online, including their wine list, prior to making reservations. There were three bottles of red wine listed for $24. However, once we arrived at the restaurant we received a wine menu with the least expensive bottle of wine being $32. The waitress then claimed they changed their wine list due to Covid. Although disappointed, we both agreed to "suck it up" and pay the difference since we wanted to treat ourselves.
Our meal was quite good. The waitress then brought an electronic device to pay the bill and showed us how to use it. The individual prices listed were correct, but the total amount was over $6 more than the total should have been. We then called our waitress and told her that the mini computer did not add correctly.
At that point, she showed us a very small line on the bottom of the menu stating there would be a 12% surcharge to cover their employee's health insurance etc. She apologized for this amount not being listed separately on the bill, but gave us a paper copy which showed the amount, along with suggested tips based on what we ordered.
While I think this is a bit outrageous due to the fact that it was not previously mentioned or listed on the bill, it got worse from there. While paying the bill on the electronic device, the suggested tips were now based on what we ordered, plus the 12% surcharge, plus tax. We are local New Orleanians and find this behavior completely sleazy. The total bill for lunch, assuming you were leaving a 20% tip, went from about $55 to $75 as a result of the advertised available wines, the 12% service fee, and the proposed tip on top of the tax and service fee. If you don't mind paying about 35% more than you anticipated for a sandwich and a couple of glasses of wine due to being nickeled and dimed to death, it was fine.
Nancy, thank you so much for letting us know how we are doing. We have shared your comments with the whole team. We truly appreciate you choosing us and we hope business will allow us to remove service charges promptly. Many thanks!
Always fantastic food! Oysters are amazing! This is the first time I have had less than excellent service... not sure if it was the "off time" that we went or what. Biggest disappointment was that beverages were delayed time and time again & I never got more water. Again, this was a very unusual experience for what is otherwise one of my favorite restaurants. Will definitely give it another try.
I've eaten at the Bourbon House many times but won't be returning. The raw oysters tasted like they had been soaked in saltwater, the pork sandwich was so dry and tasteless it was returned, the water glass had lip marks on it and the credit card machine had no paper for a receipt. The baked chicken was good but overall the experience was simply a drag. Try Superior Grill on St. Charles.
First of all, thank you for your continued patronage. I'm sorry you did not enjoy your time. I have passed your comments about the pork sandwich along to chef, and we are making adjustments. I'm sorry we missed the mark for you, but we would love a second chance. Thank you for your consideration.
Food is always delicious and our waiter was great. Cannot wait to come back.
This place was great. Service, food and drinks met expectations. Prices were reasonable.
i loved the restaurant , the food and the vibe. will def go again
Rachel was a wonderful server. She was extremely knowledgeable about the dishes.
Saw the Coolinary lunch menu online and had to go check it out. It was delicious! Service was very courteous and prompt.
Anniversary dinner, everything was great. The redfish on the half shell was excellent.
Excellent as usual.
Staff was standing around. I asked for refill on iced tea 3 times. Restaurant not crowded. Food good. Gumbo great.
Everything was great.
It was absolute delicious! Highly recommend the charbroiled oysters.
I love everything bout it and foos was awesome
I pick the restaurant because of the reviews and for the fact that we stay at the hotel. I was disappointed that the food was the worst I’ve had in New Orleans. Maybe the real chef was absent on this day. We all had Po Boys and they were nasty. No would not recommend this restaurant to my friends and family.
I understand that we are in a pandemic, but two of the bourbons I ordered were not in stock or available. If you are going to call yourself the Bourbon House.....
Hadn't been in a while and with the Covid guidelines it wasn't crowded Food was great Had Alligator wings(which was a first) Grilled reddish excellent Staff was extra attentive Great Place...we will be back
We pretty much had the place to ourselves. It was my daughters 16th birthday celebration and Eric was wonderful.
Food was delicious, portions were plenty. Would have dinner again the next time I'm in town.
Wonderful fish - well made drinks.
It got a bit noisy at times
Food was excellent. They definitely followed COVID guidelines. We are not dining out much and the restaurant hardly had any people in it, but the food was fabulous.
Absolutely fantastic service and food.
Server slow to respond but wine server fast and friendly. Service charge should be verbally announced and cash accepted, what if I didn’t bring cash???
Food was excellent. Our waiter very great. Overall would recommend to all
Tom was my Server and service was excellent
The food was OK, however the potato salad I had was the best I've ever had at a restaurant!!!! I feel the quality was a little lacking for the price of the food. The waiter was very nice and attentive without being overbearing. I would go back here, although it was nothing to write home to mom about.
Our service was excellent! The food however was very average. Dessert was the best part of the meal. I would not recommend.
Our waiter had no personality and didn’t offer any suggestions. He was slow. Had to ask for bread 3 times. Then it came with our meal not before and it was cold. His inattentiveness ruined the evening. It was our 29th Anniversary and we regretted going there.
Great service. Prompt seating. Great food as always & the frozen milk bourbon lunch is outstanding! We had a wonderful evening!
The food was delicious. The service was good. The atmosphere was pleasant. We do love the oysters and Milk punch and return every time we visit!
