This was the second time I went to Louisiana's and I'll be back. The service was superb. The food was well spiced although the scallops were a little over cooked. If you go, be sure to look around the space. It is truly beautiful.
This was our 3rd time dining at Louisiana and each time, we have brought a different couple with us. The ambiance is charming and romantic. The service is impeccable and the presentation of the food is wonderful. Louisiana should do a better job advertising, as many people do not know it exits. I would definitely recommend it for both a romantic evening for 2 or for a large party. They even have the capacity to cater an affair in house for 100 or more. Check out this hidden treasure of a restaurant!
First of all, we were in the mood for filet mignon. So we checked the menu on the website and they offered it. When we arrived and checked the menu, they did not. My sister settled on the lamb chops instead. Then the waitress informed us they had no lamb chops. Then we ordered drinks and asked the waitress to give us a little while before we ordered. It took at least 10 minutes to get our drinks. Oh and by the way, there were only a total of 5 other people in the dining room. We finished our drinks and sat with empty glasses for about 10 minutes, as both waitresses who were sharing service passed by and looked our way several times. Finally one person came over and one of us ordered another drink and said we were ready to order food. The second cocktail was finished as 15 minutes passed. No one came to take our food order. One of the waitresses was standing gazing blankly when I finally got her attention. She finally walked over and said how can I help you. At that point I said, check please.
A Great Night for us but we were only one of three groups an d due to the extra cold weather we needed to sit with our coats on
Food was tasty, the servers were very friendly and knowledgeable. The menu was limited in the sense that if you aren't a particular fan of spice, might not be for you (though that's totally the point of New Orleans-style cuisine so don't come here if you aren't into that in the first place haha). Shrimp and grits were tasty. The setup was close and the decor old-fashioned. There is a ballroom/hall half that looks very interesting.
Restaurant week and food was great. However, the service is way too slow (handled by one server for 6-7 tables). We knew this by the previous review and told her that we were in a bit hurry, but it still took so-oooo long to receive three courses. By the time the main course arrived, I already felt full by the salad. It shouldn't take 25 minutes between each course. Also, the restaurant was so-oooo cold and I had to put my coat on. The feet were completely frozen by the time we left. Need to choose a warm day. Again, food was good, but the eating experience was horrible.
If you go, you must try the blackened shrimp with grits....it is simply delicious! The sauce is wonderful and it compliments the spiciness of the shrimp. The crab bisque was very good and the scallops were very good, as well. Unfortunately, we were too full to try dessert but we will definitely save room for that on our next visit. The service was good and I would most certainly recommend this restaurant.
We arrived late in the evening and were the only diners. The place is so expansive that we felt uncomfortable being the only diners there. That was the only negative, so if you are looking to have a huge restaurant all to yourself then call ahead and make sure they are open. The food and the service was impeccable and if I were planning an elegant affair for a large group, I would look no further than Louisiana.
I love this place. One would never know from the street how pretty it is inside or how wonderful their food is. Had a nice night there. My only disappointment was that despite the menu on their site (shared it with my date first to show her the great Cajun fare) - when we got there they had a very limited New Years menu that essentially had no Cajun fare except for an appetizer. Both wanted gumbo or the like but my date ended up having to get prime rib, which one would typically go to a steak house for, and I ordered a double portion of the shrimp with grits appetizer. That said, I'll go back as I like the place - this was just a bit disappointing.
Louisiana has been in the Fells Point neighborhood for some time. It is elegantly decorated in the NO French style with a quite stately appearance. With it being the weekend before Thanksgiving, it turned out we ate our dinner being served as the only customer in the place, and that was fine with us! We cam for an early dinner and they were expecting other reservations, but late. There food was well prepared and served. Generous portions from the wine to the main course. We'd definitely go back!
