Our server was a friendly young man and was very attentive. He provided top notch service.
We arrive a few minutes before our reservation and we were promptly seated. We said we had reservations through Open Door but the restaurant attendance was light as it was early evening and so he did not seem worried to check out name off their reservation list but instead seated us as soon as we walked in. I had the crab bisque and the stuffed shrimp embrochette. It was very good my husband ordered the catfish and said he really liked that they were thin filets and fried just right. I also had a strawberry daiquiri. We were served warm French bread that was superb. All in all it was a wonderful experience in New Orleans to celebrate a birthday weekend. Great job!

Not sure what was going on... Service was extremely slow. Nearly two hours for our dinner from arrival to departure. Two glasses that were on the table were broken. In several cases, our party was not brought what was ordered.

Excellent food and service. We sat by bar so we could see the water. It was a bit warm and muggy and noisy, but food was great

We didn’t even eat. We were sat at a high top table in the bar, with plenty of room at the tables in the dining area. Normally they at least ask if you want to sit in the bar area or a high top. The bar top had a lot of dirty dishes just sitting on it 10 feet from us with no sign of being tended to. After waiting 5+ minutes without being acknowledged, we decided to get dinner somewhere else.

We remembered Landry’s from times gone by when it was a classy establishment with high quality cuisine. We felt like we were in a sports bar and the quality of the food was definitely wanting. We won’t go back

My husband and I went for lunch (we've never had dinner there). Lunch is usually good. I had the Grilled Chicken Caesar and my husband had the Shrimp PoBoy. My salad was pretty good. The bread was not so good for the poboy. The ambiance was good. The staff was friendly.

Service was very slow but our server was friendly. Food was okay. Only plus was we got a free appetizer but our meals came out before the appetizer and it was lukewarm. Not somewhere I would visit again or recommend.

Our server Steven was amazing, he made the experience so enjoyable. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the menu and made us feel very welcome. If I had friends going to the restaurant I would let them know to ask for Steven because he was wonderful to interact with!

Appetizer were very good, main dish was over cooked. Service was good in the beginning but then went down hill. If the main dish would have been as good as the appetizers then it would have been all 5 stars. Very disappointed considering the finial bill.

Seated under a vent and was dripped ( condensate) on all night . Food was fair quality at best . The waiter worked hard for us but could not compensate for the poor atmosphere , poor air conditioning unit , and fair quality of food . Did not even compare to the restaurant quality of our previous evening and Landry’s was at higher price . Overall , not worth the price when there are so many other options in New Orleans at the price point !

The greeter at the entrance was not warm and friendly. She paid attention more to counting money than giving my party the welcome we deserved. The greeter on the second floor made up for it as well as the waitress and bus boy. The crawfish bread was very tasty but the Alfredo pasta was oversauced which made it unenjoyable. The skewered shrimp was a bit over cooked and had the tail on which is a bit untraditional for a pasta dish.

It was not a great experience at all. First off, it took the longest just to get really soft drinks and an unsweetened tea that actually came out sweet. We ordered the appetizers at the same time as the drinks and two other tables came in and got their drinks and appetizers before we did. So I spoke with a manager and explained it and he said they would handle it and I asked for them to be got too. The manager had to bring us the bread. Our waitress was MIA for most of our visit, she came to the table maybe 3 times. So the manager came out and apologized. Then we waited for about 1 1/2 hours to get our food which was not exactly as I ordered it and the only thing that was hot abs fresh was the fresh. It was 5 of us and everyone’s order was not good at all. This was Father’s Day and not many people were there for this to be happening. At least 2 other tables had problems with their food too. The manager came out and asked us if we wanted desserts on him. I was too outdone by this time. They deducted the appetizers off the ticket but we were never asked to comp the meal or to at least be charged half of it. The entire ordeal lasted about 3 hours, that was ridiculous with the money that we spent. I used to love Landry’s but their restaurants are not what they used to be. Apparently the waitress kept leaving out food up for entirely too long in the window. Plus she smelled of extreme alcohol which probably explains why she was stuttering, couldn’t take our order right, couldn’t bring our order out in time or the fact that we barely saw her at all until it was time to pay the bill.

I was so heartbroken because this was something my children and I really wanted to do for him for Father’s Day and it was COMPLETELY RUINED.

Such a disappointment. Landry’s need to regroup and get it together.

Once a large party sat down, the next time I saw my server was when I was halfway done with entree. It was my birthday and the service was horrible. Server apologized but the damage was done.

I reserved for a party of three friends for a nice dinner. It took 25 minutes to get water which was after I went to the host that seated us. It took another 20 minutes to get drinks from the bar and get our order in and 30 minutes to get served. One of our party was so aggravated with the horrible service, he left. The manager had come by the table to apologize for the slow service but it didn’t help!!! I could understand if the restaurant had been busy, but it wasn’t. Several tables were open and there seemed to be enough servers. Although the food was good, it definitely prevented me from going back. Truly disappointing!

We had reservations for 6 on Tues. There was a large party which had reserved the outside area, so there was no river view seating available. There clearly was not enough extra staff on hand to deal with the normal customers. We were seated for 35 minutes before we received our drink order. 50 min for apps. Server had no personality. We paid and left without ordering dinner. We were able to get a table at Emiril's NOLA and the both the food and the service were phenomenal. I wouldn't recommend the One-and-Done drink there though. Yikes!

In a word Terrible. The long story is too long it was that bad. We waited 15 mins for a server 20 more to have our order take. Still no water. Then 5 minutes later the water comes. Other drinks came 10 mins after that. Then the waiter says the mahi is out that's 20 mins after I ordered and this is now nearly an hour. The manager, she didn't care. Terrible leader, I'm surprised her staff doesn't quit. Oh wait some did it was a regular sht show

Vacationing from FL, seated early for our reservation. Manager seated us at a high top but moved us to accommodate our river view request. Server Ariel was awesome, friendly, attentive, and eager to make recommendations. Mixed drinks took a little longer to reach the table than normal, but we were never without a beverage. We ordered the crawfish bread appetizer which was amazing. Dinner was filet mignon with potatoes and the fried catfish with fries and we tried a side of the dirty rice. Great food, wonderful server.. we highly recommended you try it!

The food was good, but the service was horrible. Waited for someone to take our order, but no one ever came. People that were seated after us were served before us. Had to go get a manager in order for someone to wait in us.

Landry's used to be one of our favorite places. Other Landry's restaurants are still good for seafood. Unfortunately, the great new location of Landry's in the French Quarter does not make up for the terrible - actually, nonexistent - service. The food was greasy. The place is dirty. Surfaces of handrails, floors, etc are very porous and sticky dirty. It doesn't smell good. It just feels creepy. It is NOT what we have known as Landry's. SAD.
