Contemporary Italian
The signature, all-day restaurant, named for the patron saint of cooks, is an ode to coastal Italian cooking with regional New Orleans influences as well. The timeless design is a bit grand with lush modern touches and includes outdoor seating. Menu highlights include Grilled Creole Oysters, Scampi Risotto, and Gulf Flounder Piccata.

Paradise Lounge, the hotel’s lobby bar, is an airy and sun-drenched space (with outdoor patio) open to guests looking for coffee or a drink from our signature cocktail menu.

The maximum party size for San Lorenzo is 8 guests. We offer online reservations for parties up to 4 guests, however, for parties larger than 4, we request that you contact the restaurant directly to make a reservation. We are happy to take reservations at San Lorenzo up to 30 days in advance.

San Lorenzo is one of New Orleans best new restaurants for 2021. Set in a beautiful location with a well thought out menu. Food is creative, perfectly prepared and the service is professional. I highly recommend a dining experience.

The ambiance and location are really hard to beat. The hotel is absolutely stunning, and the restaurant is the same. The menu, however, is a bit small, especially if you have someone who is celiac (though, to be fair, it is an Italian restaurant). Still, the staff were very accommodating. The food was good but not great, though good enough to be a great spring point for a beautiful walk down Magazine.

Best hidden secret in New Orleans! Cannot rave enough about how everything was. Truthfully feel guilty leaving a good review because I’d rather this place stay a secret. Everything was amazing and I cannot wait to go back again soon!!!!!!!!

This was a hidden gem. The inside seemed a bit loud, but my girlfriend and I had an intimate table outside and it was perfect. The food was some of the best I've had in the city. The server was attentive, knowledgeable and personable. The atmosphere was perfect for a special event. Don't miss out on getting a reservation here.

Very good food. Everything we ate was delicious. We will return.
Only thing that would make it better was is they heated the bread. That would put it over the top.

Table locations are too tight on the deuces. Plan to enjoy your neighbor. Which for us was fine as couple adjacent was nice. But with covid I prefer some space. Spice on food is over elevated in most dishes. When were able to get japolenoes removed on the ink squid pasta dish and I can say 100% this dish was devine. I loved it. You could then taste the smoothness and lightness of the uni and lump crab meat and the mild ink taste in the pasta. So ask them to remove the japolenoes. Desserts were heavenly. Try the Pavlova it was amazing. Bread that accompanied dinner was fresh and delecious.

The raw oysters are excellent. The basic green salad was so fresh and good. Simple but outstanding. Bread plate was so tasty. The clams with linguine were bland. Maybe that is how it is served in other areas of the country but in New Orleans we like a lot of flavor. They need to season the dish up. Excellent service and ambience. Overall very good.

The food was very good from the Caesar salad to both our entrees ( lobster bucatini and Trout piccata). The place was very nice as well. We’d definitely go back to try some of the other dishes

Was expecting much more from the food. Both entrees and starters were a solid good, but not worth what we paid as these dishes could probably be made better at home. Ambiance is quiet and nice and on the super positive, the cocktails were superb. I think they need to elevate the flavor of the dishes or lower their prices- all in all was underwhelmed in general, and even more so given the $200 price tag for our meals and drinks. Give the restaurant a pass, but hit the bar/lounge for good and inventive classic cocktails.

Overpriced for what is offered. $38.00 pasta dish with lobster meat still in the claws (no tail meat and for the price I do not expect to work for my meal). The shrimp risotto was bland and both dishes would have benefited from grated cheese. The service was friendly and professional and the ambiance was excellent, but the overhead music loud and not appropriate for the space. Would return sometime to try other offerings but it will not be soon. I booked and disclosed my wife’s birthday but no acknowledgement.
