Now, the unique venue will once again open its doors to serve classic local fare like Turtle Soup, Louisiana Blue Crab Cakes and BBQ Shrimp using the freshest, locally-sourced seafood and produce. While many restaurants tout “fresh and local”, Sbisa means it, as the Napoli family owns their own seafood dock and distribution business in Hopedale, Louisiana.
Louisiana Blue Crab Cakes
Lightly dusted in Panko bread crumbs, pan-seared and served with citrus aioli
Fresh filet of trout topped with Gulf shrimp, crawfish tails, and crab fingers in a champagne cream sauce
Southern Seafood Boil
Boiled Gulf shrimp, jumbo lump crab meat, fried green tomatoes, house-made remoulade, and cocktail sauce
As always the staff at Cafe Sbisa delivers a top notch experience. Why we keep coming back and our friends who joined us were so impressed they will be back as well.
My favorite restaurant in the French Quarter . Best food . Best service . Best waiters .
We had a great dinner experience there! Food was good,service was amazing. Highly Recommended.
It was our first time and the restaurant’s first night open after Ida. From the greeting we received at the door to the impeccable service Thomas provided to the best meal we’ve had since moving to Nola in June…5 Stars all around!
We’ll be back often.
Food is amazing, and the staff are super attentive. We went for brunch but will definitely be going back for dinner!
Time and time again Cafe Sbisa proves what a treasure they are to the city. The food is incredible, the service wonderful, and the ambience is quintessencial French Quarter New Orleans. What more needs to be said? We have been eating here for years, and each and every visit we are impressed by the consistency of our experience. Alfred Singleton (Chef and co-owner) runs a tight ship. Restaurants this good have someone terrific at the helm, and he is IT. As an aside, we always bring out of town visitors here - they take it all in and love it as much as we do - going home hoping to return here again. Finally, Sbisa is doing a tremendous job during this Covid time and are taking any and all precautions. I applaud them for that. They are following guidelines, doing what needs to be done and keeping everyone safe. Thank you for another great time!
From the time we walked thru the doors and met the staff until the time we left after dining in everything was AMAZING & EXCEPTIONAL. My sisters and I will definitely be back soon.
Had a large group dinner at Cafe Sbisa and it was excellent! The food was tasty from starters through dessert and the service was on point. Will definitely go back again and highly recommend it.
Such a wonderful experience, like always! The food was delicious and the staff was great!
Perfect! The service was outstanding from beginning to end. The food was amazing and the band was great. Normally don’t venture to the FQ but was worth the trip!
This is the second time that I’ve been for brunch this summer and it was fabulous again! The food is very good, well prepared, and comes out hot! The service is incredible. Everyone is very welcoming and attentive. And as a bonus, there was a jazz trio performing and they were terrific. Highly recommend!
Friends were in town so I took them to my favorite restaurant. Service and drinks were excellent as always. Many thanks to the team for the 5 star service and creating an amazing experience for your guests.
It was crowded with large parties. The service staff was less than normal because of illness—our waiter was handling nearly all tables. The food was actually not good at all.
I had looked forward to this dinner as I have lived Sbisa in the past. I was extremely disappointed.
One of the best dining experiences I can recall. The service was impeccable. We had at least three very fine people attending to our every need. Spot on service. And the food was simply amazing. Live this. The Court Bouillon- to die for!
One word: Deliciousness
Let's start with the ambience of this restaurant, impeccable! The decor and table setting is so intimate for any celebration: date night, anniversary, proposal, birthday, graduation, etc. Upon entry, the owner welcomed us and has someone seat us. I did make reservations in advance via open table and someone called me 3 hrs prior to arrival to confirm our reservations. It made it feel so personable! Our waiter Thomas was very attentive to our needs and provided us with drink and food menus. The drinks are definitely top shelf premium alcohol ok, nothing watered down. The crab cakes were pure deliciousness and the crawfish beignets were good also. Our entrees were delightful and no gratuity was added to our bill, I appreciated this.
Please note: The balcony area upstairs is under renovation if you are looking for the scenery aspect.
This was a great find for us. Quiet with great ambiance. Cocktails were outstanding as was the food. We will go back.
Everything was amazing!!
Went to brunch with my family for my birthday a couple weeks ago. We immediately were greeted by kind and professional staff that clearly cared about their jobs. We sat at the bar for a few minutes before our table was ready. The bartender explained a lot of the history of the restaurant and the paintings behind the bar which was fascinating. Meanwhile, the manager also greeted us at the bar to welcome us to the restaurant.
Once we were seated, the wait staff was incredible. Not one of the seven of us at the table ever had to ask for a refill or to have an empty plate picked up. The service was impeccable and even better than I could have imagined. The jazz band also played happy birthday while we were there. Truly and incredible experience from the drinks, the service, and the FOOD!! Highly recommend the bananas foster french toast!
Thank you to the wonderful staff who made the entire experience one I’ll never forget. If you have a chance to try this place, do not hesitate! Book ASAP! It’ll be so worth your time.

Food was delicious, and service was polite and well-timed. We were happy to find that the Sunday Jazz Brunch included live music, which really added to the ambiance.
The service was top notch. The food was beyond amazing!
I'm missing Cafe Sbisa from CA tonight.... dinner with Scott and his team was one of the best parts of our trip to NOLA. We each had a delicious meal, the freshest tasting seafood and the best filet mignon I've ever tasted!! We tried 3 desserts, and my favorite was the chocolate cake. It was so rich, but also light, absolutely delicious. I just can't say enough about how wonderful our dinner was. The service was top notch, some of the best we've ever enjoyed. Next time we make it to New Orleans, this will be our first stop. Thank you so much to Scott and all of the wonderful team at Cafe Sbisa for helping make our trip that much more amazing!!
Our time here was so lovely! The service was great and the food was delicious - especially the crab cakes. It definitely had a nicer atmosphere but was perfect for a fun outing!
