The best food we’ve had in a long time and the service is excellent. This is a must if you are in New Orleans! We had the oysters arnaud, crab cakes, fish with shrimp, soufflé potatoes, and mid pie for dessert.

All around an excellent place for a quiet early evening drink and snack. The cocktails were well made, food was creative and delicious, and the staff very attentive.

Great ambiance and service. Food was fantastic. Sole almandine was cooked perfect and was rich with a bag of almonds. SaZerac was a little heavy with herbsant but a second shot of rye made it perfect. Really enjoyed the guyerre. Any visitor should plan to arrive 15 -20 minutes early to walk through the (free) Marci gras museum on the second floor. Highly recommend this place but need to make reservations even for the bar!

Service and cocktails were great. Our server was great at walking us through the menu and sharing some fun facts. Food was underwhelming. I wouldn’t rush back.

I think on the reservation, it should be very clear. We thought we were booking the Jazz Brunch. When we arrived we were told we booked the bar seating, and we had to sit in the bar, or in the upstairs at the restaurant where we could not see the band. We sat in the bar, but they did not check us in on the reservation for Open Table, so we had to file a dispute. The price was still the same for the Jazz brunch, even though we were in the bar, across the hall from the main dining room and could not even hear the band. Then we were told that they could not even serve two of the brunch desert menu items in the bar because of the flambé I guess.

Had I known that reservations booked on Open Table were seated in a dingy bar area with chipped granite tables I would never have made a reservation here. Hostess was dismissive and rude. Very unpleasant.

French 75 is likely my favorite bar in the French Quarter. The drinks are created to perfection, wine list is very good, and the small bites are just perfect. The staff are accommodating and efficient and the atmosphere is cozy, yet fun with a definite New Orleans spirit. It is the perfect place for a cozy short evening or to begin a evening with cocktails before dinner. It is New Orleans at its finest...

What a great start to the evening. 6:00 pm reservations were accommodated immediately. The room is set up for safety and a relaxed vibe these days. Always great service was spot on and the cocktails were perfect.

Our server seemed uninterested in pleasing us. We ordered a shrimp appetizer and she didn’t ask which one (there were two on the menu). It came and was not the one we were expecting which is not that big of a deal, however she should have asked as she was more familiar with the menu. Or she should have at least apologized for us not getting the one we wanted.

Very knowledgeable bartenders who know how to shake up outstanding cocktails. The best cocktails we had while in New Orleans! The bar menu was the perfect amount to order one each and all share. We will make this a regular place to come while in new Orleans from now on!

Over priced drinks, but that was expected. Thought there would be jazz music playing, so it was a bit of a quiet atmosphere for a Saturday night. Didn’t stay long as a result.
