Everything was great except the temperature of the Turtle soup. Sent it back twice. They employees are great
Great food and friendly service
The food was fantastic. Enjoyed the Bananas Foster preparation. Staff was very attentive to our needs.
The Jazz trio band was so nice! We enjoyed the Mimosa Bar and everyone's food was fantastic! The desserts did not disappoint especially the Bananas Foster!
The crab cheesecake is special
You can’t go wrong with any of the fish dishes
Save room for the chocolate cheesecake
But don’t be afraid to share it
Kathleen our server was the best in New Orleans
Incredible dining experience!! The service from Allison(Tigger) and Mikaela was top notch the whole way through our meal. Everyone else we dealt with was very pleasant as well. The food, from the appetizers through the main courses to the unbelievable bread pudding, was an experience to remember. We have not had great service since we have been here in New Orleans, so that made us appreciate this experience that much more. Thank you!!!
Celebrated my birthday with our family. Perfect!
We had a great experience!
Good food and service. Brunch is great !
Such excellent cuisine and an awesome craft bar - ice chipping cold beer! That bananas froster is dangerously good. Yummy.
Great as usual.
Visited here twice during my New Orleans stay. The first time was with some foodie-friend singers who recommended it highly and the second time was with hubby & friends. My fish was delicious and enjoyed tasting other's meals as well. My favorite dessert was the lemon cookie with the lemon-curd and the to-die-for blueberry sauce. Yum!
Hostess upfront was rude and unfriendly which didn't set the proper tone for our dining experience as we were excited to try the jazz brunch. Service was fine and food was better than average. That said, we would likely try brunch elsewhere if returning to New Orleans. Lastly, we were celebrating our anniversary and there was no recognition of the special occasion.
Excellent food, service , and ambiance. This restaurant always delivers.
Our server was grumpy and that colored the experience. Crawfish cheesecake was superb, the creamed spinach egg dish was bland. Overall, not as good as my prior visits to the Palace
Absolutely incredible dining experience! You must request Kathleen and Tim! One of our new must visit dining destinations!
Great meal and great service. Our Anniversary brunch was so nice!
Gumbo wasn't as good as last time. Turtle soup & cheesecake are wonderful!
Great service. Super friendly. Never felt rushed. Never felt neglected. 👌🏻
The jazz trio added to the ambiance. The only minor thing was the food was luke warm, not hot enough for a breakfast plate. Other than that, we had a great time.
We were in New Orleans for Restaurant Week. The Palace Cafe is one of our favorites. The Crabmeat Cheesecake was heavenly. My husband had the Shrimp Tchefuncte and I had Catfish Pecan and I honestly can't say which was better because both were so delicious we had to share both. That creole meuniere sauce is so delightful and the catfish was so fresh and the pecan crust gave it the perfect crunch. We finished with the Corn Brulee. Who knew corn could improve my favorite dessert and the caramel corn on top was the perfect touch. Can't wait to return.
Great food & amazing staff!! Will return next time I’m in town and will recommend to friends as well.
Excellent! Iinteresting food prepared well and full of flavor. Great service.
Great service and wonderful food.
Everyone enjoyed their meal, my fried oyster salad had the best fried oysters I have had in my 3 days in NOLA.
Well it was Restaurant Week and $20 advertised for lunch when I made reservations. Upon arrival they told me it ended at 2:30 PM. After speaking with manager he agreed to let us have menus for $20 lunch. 2 choices - seafood pasta or Pot Pie except out of mashed potatoes for Pot Pie. We all got pasta and it was so so. Not the caliber food I’ve eaten at Palace Cafe during past dinners. Disappointed
People and food are outstanding
Awesome place! Service was excellent and food was amazing! Our waiter and waitress were both incredibly nice, and answered any questions we had about the food or drinks. Our waitress even gave us some tips on the best shopping strips in New Orleans and what other restaurants were good in town. It was such a great experience!
Had a window seat for two and location was perfect. We shared the crab cheesecake which was fabulous. So glad the waiter suggested it. Mimosa bar includes your choice of juice(s) and fruit and bartender was excellent. Coffee comes with warm milk which was a nice touch. Would highly recommend this restaurant.
Awesome food and Jazz music
We had an excellent time at the Palace Cafe. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. Out service was fun and well done. The meal itself was tasty. We truly enjoyed the crab cheesecake and the crab chops. The main courses were all well done. We finished with some fantastic desserts. The bread pudding is awesome.
A Favorite. Casual, yet elegant. Great ambience, great seafood, Three of us had the Andouille Crusted Black Drum (or was it Almandine--i forget)--delicious!! Great service
Had a wonderful special brunch for my brother! Enjoyed the music too. Wonderful service!
Always an amazing experience. Music, the food and drinks. So nola
Incredible food and service. We enjoyed our meal and our service. The flaming Bananas Foster was a special treat. Great place to bring out of town guests to experience New Orleans cuisine.
Server and assistant seemed over worked from my vantage point or either they stuck my group at an out of the way table.
Great food, great service! We had a really good time!
Would’ve given 5 stars, but my food came out a little lukewarm. I like a hot breakfast! Overall such a unique dining experience, amazing cocktails as well
Perfect, as always.
