Southern
The Quarter's most dynamic community gathering place, Holmes is a casual-yet-sophisticated restaurant & bar which respects the civic spirit of the former D.H Holmes Department Store. We are conveniently located in the Hyatt Centric French Quarter which is a block away from Bourbon Street and other local landmarks.

Executive Chef Malia Hamilton created Holmes to have a menu that honors local, southern fair while we prepare contemporary cuisine in an open concept environment.

Besides, having great food, Holmes also has a list of contemporary and uniquely crafted cocktails that Lead Bartender Gierra Hankton has developed. The cocktails, like the food, pay homage to the former D.H. Holmes Department Store.

    The host and service were nice and friendly. The wait after ordering was long and the only negative. The food was good. Very delicious. Fresh and tasty. The price was very affordable and a great value considering the other places in the French Quarter. A very clean restaurant. Probably the nicest restaurant in terms of cleanliness in the French Quarter. Would eat here again.

    The staff were so friendly! We got the cornbread and that was delicious! We also got the Holmes Cobb Salad which was so tasty and the gumbo, which was also delicious! Would definitely recommend for dinner before heading out!

    A little difficult to find but worth the hunt. This gem is inside the Hyatt Hotel which Maps doesn’t tell you. Their grits are to die for so creamy and butter melted so easily making for rich decadence. Their beignets were delicious and so fresh. Our waitress was a sweet thing who made sure we got everything we ordered. Great food, great people and beautiful environment. Like I said worth the extra effort to find this hidden gem.

    We traveled to NOLA for a foodie tour. We enjoyed every meal and the service at every restaurant except this one. We were very disappointed. Perhaps it could be blamed on holiday staffing but there were only 3 tables filled in the entire restaurant.

    This was not a restaurant- it was a hotel lobby. Photos are misleading. There were no walls or partitions, so every time someone walked in, you felt the cold weather outside and as a result, food became cold very quickly. Everyone was eating with their coats on. Couldn’t find it, either - it’s inside Hyatt. We spent 30 minutes walking around and no one was answering the phones. The food itself was decent, but very overpriced for what you got - think typical hotel food. Service was wonderful, however. This was a Christmas Day reservation, so particularly regret booking. I cannot imagine another scenario where I’d ever go back - maybe a quick bite on Mardi Gras? Perhaps if you’re staying at the hotel? Otherwise I’m shocked OpenTable has them listed as a restaurant- it’s not.

    Jarrod was a great server. Although the service was slow, the food was delicious and hot. The team work together real well there was no real check in so I was a little nervous walking up but it was a great time.

    It was located inside a hotel, the “restaurant “ side was not open and we were told we could purchase baked goods from the counter and sit.

    It was just okay. It was hard to find the entrance. There’s so many freight entrances on the street that you had to navigate through a maze of stacked boxes and trash cans. We thought it may have been better to enter in Canal Street? The table service was juxtaposed with their continental service. It was confusing where we should check in for our reservations. A savvy server realized that we weren’t part of the hotel guest crowds doing a “grab and go” so she seated us. (The side with large elegant adjacent to the bar was closed and reopened for service as we were leaving. That would have been nicer.) The food servings were small. The English muffins for the eggs Benedict were the smallest I’ve ever seen. Barely 3” across. Must have been homemade in the restaurant. No regular Benedict’s just a few with seafood or boudin. They were extremely tasty but definitely more plate than food. I had the Banana Foster pancakes and was disappointed. They were heavy and bready. The description said there were pecans - and I had it in my head that it was going to be a light fluffy pecan pancake with the banana foster topping. It wasn’t. This had potential but in my mind, a huge fail.

    Food and service were really good! Only complaint was the singer of the live music was too close to us. I was trying to catch up with my family and it was difficult to hear everyone. Otherwise everything was great!

    HolmesResponded on December 16, 2022Thank you for dining with us! We are glad to hear that you had a great experience. We do apologize for the noise and have addressed this issue with the performer. Come and see us again soon!

    It took over an hour for us to receive our food in a half empty restaurant. As a former server it was a lackluster experience as we received very poor care with getting drinks, drink refills, and status updates on our order. The food we ordered was very straight forward, I would have been more understanding if we had made special requests but we did not. Our server seemed annoyed in general and I’m pretty sure it wasn’t just our table that received poor service. For the price point, it’s not worth dining here.

    Food was good and the yaka mein was delicious! Service and atmosphere was relaxed. Restaurant is in the hotel lobby with no signs saying it is Holmes.

    HolmesResponded on November 24, 2022Thank you very much for your feedback. We are glad to hear that you had a great experience with us. I know Chef will be delighted to hear about the Yaka Mein as that is one of her signature dishes. We look forward to your next visit!

    I've dined at some of the best in NOLA, and this one ranks near the top! You really must try it the next time you're in town. They have a limited menu, but food is really good, and the service could not have been better!

    Hands down the best Jambalaya & deviled eggs we've had in many years. The staff was very accommodating with our late reservation and our plates were always filled and our drinks were always cold. Thank you!
