The Maw Maw s chicken was a disappointment. Far too much garlic. Will only ever have the hamburger here again. And it was super loud tonight. Disappointing because I do like this restaurant.

Grab the only seat available at the bar early at night. Had a chicken soup with matzo balls. Nice n hot. Surprised me when I asked for parmesan the bartender did not have any at the bar n had to go to the kitchen to get it.
Restaurant was packed.

Hands down one of the most amazing meals I’ve ever had. Service was incredible. We were celebrating our anniversary and put that in the notes on open table.
We were greeted with champagne and then after our Fabulous meal our server Richard brought us a dessert to die for with a happy anniversary chocolate on it. We’ve never been treated so amazing at a restaurant. We will back for sure!!

My fish was dry. They forgot to put the sauce on it. My husband and another friend ordered their fish blackened. . It came out cooked but not blackened The guys were sweet that waited on us. I think the issue is the kitchen. We still has a good time. But don’t think I will ever return. To many good restaurants in NOLA.

We visit Luke in New Orleans every year. Their drink the French 57 is great along with the brussels sprouts. What we didn’t like is the restaurant is noisy.

Had an amazing time at happy hour with friends. Richie Rich was an amazing server with a refreshing personality. Service was on point and our dinner was amazing. Doesn’t get much better than French 75’s and 75 cent beautiful Louisiana oysters.

Luke is one of my favorite restaurants in New Orleans! The oyster are always on point in any form. This most recent visit was my first time going for brunch and I enjoyed everything, especially the cocktails. Luke has the best French 75 I have ever enjoyed! I can't wait to go back!

Oysters on half shelf smallish and bruised when opened.
Tuna tartare sauce can be more acidic and better portion
Sprouts and salad overwhelmed with dressing

Waitstaff wonderful, in particular a man at back of house. He even came and talked to us, 3 tables around his. He was not even our waiter.

The Happy Hour period oysters are small . I don’t know the full price time but definitely not back to there during the happy hour. Lots of other choices in New Orleans.

I love Lüke!!! Been going there for quite some years. The food was great, the waitress was a very lovely, and hard working young lady. The place was packed, but that is no excuse for having to wait an hour and ten minutes to a get a steak, four eggs, and a coup of soup! But I know they’ll make it up to me next time!

Luke was so delicious we ended up going twice during our trip. The chicken and waffles are the reason we went back-- succulent, juicy, soft chicken over a not too thick waffle. The waffle is about the size of a pancake in thickness and it's perfect because I usually find that the waffle overwhelms the chicken, but not at Luke. Everything that we ordered was great and would go back a third time if we could.

Expected better from the ratings. Pork schnitzel was deep fried and not well seasoned. Brussel sprouts were a bit soggy but uniquely seasoned. They lacked the crispness that you would expect from the preparation. The service was excellent from a young server.
