Food was incredible, drinks were ok. Would go back and just order wine instead of a mixed drink
The pecan catfish! Soooo good.
We go there every time we are in New Orleans. Great wait staff. They will get what you want. We were there an hour before dinner menu was available and our waitress got the chef to let us order off the dinner menu.
Jazz Brunch - beautiful room, cozy despite the rain that day. Our server, Edward, could not have been better. Made some spot on recommendations- the skillet, the shrimp were great. Crabmeat “cheesecake” was delicious although note that it was more like a quiche. Roving band was lively and fun - played tableside and created a great atmosphere- enjoyed literally surround sound. Had a great New Orleans time.
Palace Cafe is simply an excellent choice every time for a great time and outstanding food. It is one of the brightest, happiest restaurants in the city.
Post-cruise for a few days in New Orleans and the Palace Cafe and Antoine’s were the only restaurants on Open Table that would allow me to make a reservation for our party of 13. We loved both of them! The crab cheesecake which was a specialty of the Palace Cafe was full of delicious flavor! We also enjoyed the crab claw appetizer (I could have ordered 3 of those and a salad and called that dinner if I had known how good they were! Others on our party raved about the seared jumbo sea scallops and shrimp creole entrees. The salads and soups were very good also. Save room for dessert because the vanilla creme brûlée and bread pudding were some of the best desserts we’ve ever had!
Bananas Foster was great tasting and fun to watch. I always come here when visiting New Orleans.
For a restaurant in a downtown tourist location, it is short on vegetarian options. The cauliflower gratin is the only vegetarian option on the menu and pretty expensive.
Our waitress Nikki was excellent as well as entertaining! The food was excellent as usual. Highly recommend to everyone
Food was very average. After complaining about the service it got better. Menu was a bit underwhelming. I believe the restraint could do better but was not trying.
Always a great time at Palace Cafe! The food is always great!
I made the reservation for 3 people for dinner. The hostess who checked us in was surly and unfriendly. She motioned us silently to wait on one side while the table was being cleaned. We were later joined by 2 couples who wanted to sit with us so we could chat. They made no effort to move us to another table - there were several vacant tables, saying there was another reservation. They lied because no one else arrived. We had to bring over chairs so our friends could sit with us. They would have ordered food and drink but the waiters did not even ask if they wanted anything. All the while we got glaring looks from them - perhaps they wanted to close up the restaurant and leave for the night...
The food was not that special either.
Our entire party of 6 was very happy with our pre-theatre brunch, especially with crab meat cheesecake and both the fried oyster salad and appetizer. My only complaint is that the crab cakes in the benedict were a bit mushy; just my personal choice to have a drier mix. Overall well satisfied and will return.
A favorite brunch spot with wonderful music and amazing service!
There was a nice variety of food. Wine list was good. Wait service was excellent. I made reservations for a lathe group dinner and they easily accommodated us. My only complaint was that my chicken was a little dry. Everyone else enjoyed there steaks and fish. Desert was great.
I try to go there any time I'm in New Orleans. It's always a good experience.
Everything was wonderful! It was pricey, but we were going out for a special occasion, so we expected that. Service: 10/10. Get the bread pudding for dessert.
We had ordered starter or first course and when our food arrived it was our entree.
Rushed service, noisy, and arrogant waitress on a Friday night. Food was over cooked and dry. Saw our food sitting under a heat lamp for way too long. Disappointing as I ate there a few years ago and the experiences was very different
I loved the New Orleans feeling and the great view. The band came around and sang jazz songs around the restraint. If I had to complain about anything it would be the noise level was too high to hold a conversation with my table.
Very good food all the way from app to dessert and service. We tried the rum sampler which I have never done before. Very good too.
Fabulous creole food for a pre-theatre dinner before seeing On Your Feet at the Saenger Theatre! It doesn't get better than this! Shrimp Remolaude on Fried Green Tomatoes, turtle soup, gumbo, andouille crusted fish, char-grilled rib-eye and white chocolate bread pudding! YUM! Geaux!
The atmosphere is outstanding. But we might as well have ordered nouvelle cuisine. My wife and I both ordered scallops. We each got 4 scallops and a very small serving of carrots in a pineapple glaze. I liked the taste, but my wife thought it was too peppery. It was essentially a small appetizer for a full price meal. It was so small, we went elsewhere for dinner shortly afterwards!
Our favorite meal in New Orleans! The meal was wonderful, the pork chop special with collard greens and sweet potato mash was excellent! Service was perfect. Would definitely recommend.
My husband and I enjoyed our dinner and the wonderful service we received from our entrance to the restaurant to the exit. Juan our server was excellent. And the food was delicious!
Brunch had crab cheesecake amazing!
Crab Benedict and champagne, a definite highlight to our foody tour!!
Went for the Jazz brunch and it didn’t disappoint. The jazz trio was as friendly as they were talented. Stopped at each table taking requests. Highly recommend.
I went to New Orleans to celebrate my 65th birthday with my entire family. We ate at several of the finest restaurants and the group agreed that this was our best meal. Service was exceptional, drinks were great, and the jazz band completed the atmosphere. Will definitely go there on future trips. WHO DAT!!!!!
Pecan Crusted Catfish was outstanding along with a world class hamburger and AMAZINGLY perfect french fries (of all things). French fries are not a given. Some places just now how to do them right and this place does for sure. Perfectly crisp, coarse salt with a little pepper.
Staff was friendly and attentive. I'd give it five stars but I was not a huge fan of the Turtle Soup. I'm a South Louisiana native and have eaten all manner of roux-based dishes. This one was good, and I am glad I tried it, but I was expecting a bit more. Could be just me. Seriously hate to ding 1 star for it but am just being honest. This is a classic stop in New Orleans and if you haven't tried it you should.
Shrimp Remoulade was really fresh and Great service! Our group of 6 was seated upstairs near window overlooking Canal St, which we appreciated, and we had a great dinner.
The Palace Cafe is always fabulous as is the service
Great Thanksgiving meal!
Just perfect! Drinks, food and service were all great.
Great service. Very tasty food. Portions a tad small for cost. Chairs a bit uncomfortable. I'd definitely go back
Excellent service & good food!!
Always amazing food, incredible service, and good people! Plus the crabmeat cheesecake is to die for!!!
My family enjoyed the perfect Thanksgiving meal in a lovely old building. Two of us did seafood while the others did the traditional turkey meal after starting with a wonderful crawfish cheesecake. Service was excellent.
Food & Service were Exceptional on a very busy day. Overall, an enjoyable experience. Delicious New Orleans Cuisine.
