Café Sbisa, established in 1899 and the third oldest fine-dining establishment in the French Quarter, is proud to re-open under the direction of a new team to once again offer the highest quality French-Creole cuisine in a welcoming, historical setting that both locals and tourists will appreciate. Spearheading the new Café Sbisa are Mr. Craig Napoli, who successfully ran the notable restaurant from 1992 - 2005 when Hurricane Katrina devastated the city, and Chef Alfred Singleton, who met Craig when he started working for him at the former Café Sbisa as a prep cook.

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.

    Enjoyed being seated out on the outside balcony on a beautiful night. Menu was a bit more limited than I had hoped (no raw bar) but the fried oysters were great and the legendary turtle soup lives up to the hype. Kind of odd to add an automatic gratuity but no big deal.

    I had not been to Cafe Sbisa in years and looked forward to our dinner. We had a reservation, but the restaurant was not busy during French Quarter Festival which was a surprise. The food was good, and the service started out good. As the evening went on the service slowly eroded away. Our appetizers were served before our cocktails arrived at our table. The gumbo was very good, and I commented to our server. Our server then told us how inexpensive it is for him to purchase the gumbo for himself. This left a very sour taste, since the gumbo was a 50% mark up for a small cup that was served to me. I will not be back.
