The Palace Cafe has been one of our favorite restaurants in New Orleans for many years. Love the atmosphere and the food! Especially the andouille crusted fish - awesome!

It was really great. The food was wonderful and the staff were on point. It is fine dining yet they don't make it feel stuffy or awkward. It was our first time dining there and we look forward to returning.

It was our first dinner in NOLA. What a great experience. The wait staff was attentive and helpful with the menu. It is a little noisy, so glad we sat in a corner.

The food was outstanding. I consider this a place you go if you want what people consider
"traditional" New Orleans food & decor. We went on Friday and we are still talking about how good it was on Monday. We had the crab meat cheesecake, which was out of this world and split the Filet. Then had King Cake for dessert, as well as after dinner cocktails. All of it was incredible and we will be back.

Our food was good quality, salad fresh, crab cheese cake was excellent. Steaks cooked correctly however the Service was lacking. Waitress talked to much, my tea glass was not refilled or was I asked if I wanted more. The assistant never came back to the table once he brought our drinks. Waitress said the assistant was new. The dessert coffe was excellent. Our bill including tip $150. I expected better service from this restaurant.

Great food selection at the breakfast buffet. Eggs were scrambled and wet which is not how I like them. Great service!
