    So very disappointing! We were seated by the host. Server came by and asked for drink orders. 2 coffees and a Chardonnay. She came back with coffees and the Chardonnay which she poured from the bottle into glass-it was the end of the bottle and not even a 4 oz pour for $23! We waited for a long time for our order to be taken and a new person came to take the order. We said we didn’t know what happened to our server and she said she didn’t either. Finally got our food, had to ask for coffee refills, butter and jam for the biscuits, salt and pepper, more coffee refills. We pretty much had to “flag people down” to get service. This was a special occasion for my family which turned into a complete letdown besides the fact that it is terribly overpriced for food that is ok and service that is subpar.

    Great food. Portions are not large but you probably want to order mostly to share. The staff is amazing, very knowledgeable. We spend a lot of time in New Orleans, know all the restaurants, one of the best dining experiences I’ve had in quite a while there. Make sure to go.

    San Lorenzo is a beautiful space inside The St. Vincent Hotel. Food was superb, but service was only average. I have never been in a restaurant that does not have decaf coffee!!! Given the price tag of the restaurant (and the hotel) it was stunning they did not have a single decaf pack of coffee to be brewed.

    Unfortunately, the experience did not live up to the hype or expectations. At the cost and standard this restaurant seems to hold themselves to, both the service and food were wildly mediocre at best and just disappointing. Not only were we basically sat on top of two other tables, the service was rushed and inattentive and the food was warm at best, around the same temperature as the warm rose. Despite it being Valentines, when a restaurant charges this much for a meal before even arriving at the restaurant, I expect both the service and food to be at least of that caliber. San Lorenzo has a lot to work on if they want to consider themselves in the same category and price range as top New Orleans eateries. I get that nights such as Valentines are really tough on restaurants, but again, when charging as much as they were, I expect them to be able to live up to it. With that said, plenty of trusted palates have raved about San Lorenzo and I will give them another chance.

    The restaurant itself is an elegant little jewel box. Staff and food still don’t live up to the experience of when this restaurant first opened. It’s been opened a couple of years now and it really has never regained the same quality of food and service that justified these prices. Food is still good, not great, wine list has some great Italian bottles, service is inefficient, amnestic, and at times inattentive. On this night NO Bread was served, after two requests, until the second course was half eaten. Half the reason to come here is for the bread, especially the “carte di musica”. Pasta “Pomedoro” and Flounder Piccata were good. Desserts, olive oil cake and bundino, were delicious but took over 20 minutes to come to table. These desserts are premade and only require plating. Refilling water or wine was out of the question on this night. It was empty at 6:15 when we arrived. Filled by 7:30, and stayed so until 9:15 when we were finally able to go home after 3 courses one of which was a shared salad. This was followed by a 10 minute wait for the check. This is a small setting served by 3 and a captain on this night, which should be perfectly suited for customer attention.

    Loved everything about this restaurant! We ate breakfast and dinner here on New Year’s Eve. The French omelette was delicious, delicate, creamy and flavorful. It comes with a butter lettuce & vinaigrette which was surprisingly satisfying despite no carb side. Dinner was superb and the staff were absolutely lovely, taking good care of us as the table ran a little late because the restaurant was unsurprisingly busy. The cesar salad was the best we’ve ever had in our 60+ years of extensive travel. The linguine with clams and seafood risotto were both perfect and loved the Chablis we paired with it. The staff were informative in food & drink. I also have to give a shout out to the bartenders who are talented and create great atmosphere and cocktails! Thanks everyone!

    This was a comedy of errors. First off, we arrived a little early for our reservation and our table wasn’t ready, which was fine. We were told that we could have a drink at the bar if we wanted. The Chapel Club bar was super cool, but we were only able to get a quick drink because they were closing for a ticketed event, which we were upset to hear because we were planning to go there after dinner. We went back to check on our reservation. The table was still not ready. The hostess was apologetic and brought us a complimentary drink, then we waited more. I was starting to not feel great with 2 drinks and no food. Finally, one hour after our reservation time, we were seated. The service was great despite there being a little bit of confusion about who our server was going to be. The server was very apologetic for the table wait as well. The appetizers were good, then we ordered dinner. My husband enjoyed his meal, but mine was not good. It was a lobster pasta with a very spicy sauce. The spice completely killed the lobster, which was sad. I also ordered a simple drink, which I guess the bar wasn’t able to make. The server tried to bring me a complimentary substitute drink, but then another server bumped her and the drink spilled everywhere. So no drink that I ordered and no complimentary drink. By this point, we were just over it so we got our check. It would have been nice if the server would have comped the other drink that I had gotten before since I wasn’t able to get my other drink. The server and hostess were very nice and apologetic. They did try to make the situation better, but it was just a mess. I had booked this reservation 1.5 months in advance hoping to have an amazing dinner and then go to the Chapel Club, but neither one of those things come true. Very disappointing.

    The oysters and Caesar’s salad were quite good. And that’s where it stopped. The rest of the food was average at best. Most disappointing thing was the service - it was abysmal! The worst I have had in a long time.

    I was so looking forward to San Lorenzo, as everyone has been raving.....then I realized they were speaking of Dinner. Lunch was pretty disappointing. The wait staff was lovely, but quite oblivious. Hard to get their attention. Maybe there were not enough servers? Pastas were very good!! The brioche for the lobster salad sandwich was cold. Sending it back was not option as no one was available. I will say their drinks are great and the Adams Rose Brut was wonderful. I will return for dinner.
