Fabulous as always! Ro, Lou and staff were attentive and our brunch selections were delicious. Thanks for the wonderful experience.
Thank you so much for coming in! It's the continued support from everyone that is making this possible, now.
We love being able to sit outside and the waitstaff is great ( woman who works patio). We live 2 blocks away, so glad to have you in the neighborhood!
Thank you so much! I'm so happy you like our courtyard and even happier to be in the neighborhood!!!
We had a fantastic first visit at Red Gravy. The Enzos was wonderful! We also has the veal Marsala and the Carbonara, literally the best we've ever had in Nola. The owner came out and spoke to us, she was the highlight of our evening. We will definitely be going back!
Thank you so much for coming in!! The Enzo is an homage to a great restaurant back on Arthur Ave. in the Bronx. I'm so happy you enjoyed it! Hope to see you again!
Celebrating our move to Nola!!
Thank you so much for coming in! Welcome to NOLA!!
The service here is impeccable, The staff treats you like family (or better in the case of my family) but you come here for the food, and that is why you come back. Italian with a creative lant is the core of the menu. You can taste the care and passion in every bite.
Thank you so much!!! Without the help of the entire staff and the support of our guests, none of this would be possible.
The restaurant was not "that" busy. It took us 30 minutes to get waters and bread. Our waitress brought 4 thin slices of french bread with a garlic butter. We asked for more--I thought 4 thin slices was pretty stingy considering we just waited 30 minutes for it. She brought 4 more and no butter this time. We were out from the first time. When we got the bill, we were charged 4.50 for the second basket. They should be ashamed to charge for just bread when the service was as bad as it was. The food was very good but the service was SO slow it was ridiculous.
thank you for coming in.
One of our favorites. So wonderful to see old friends and enjoy a fantastic meal
Thank you so much for coming in and your support!!
Red Gravy is one of the best meals I’ve ever had in New Orleans! Their meatballs are to die for and HUGE, and we also shared some incredible lasagna and ricotta gnocchi with wild boar ragu. Cozy atmosphere (would be great for a first date or anniversary dinner) and exceptional service. Can’t wait to come back again soon!
Thank you so much!! Yes, the meatballs are 'a thing', to be sure. It's my grandmother's recipe and Lou hand rolls each one. I'm so happy you enjoyed the gnocchi....that's one of my favorites, too! Thank you for your support!
Can't wait to go back. hope she opens for lunch soon
Funny you should say that!! Everything is still a work in progress, especially because of Covid; but I am considering doing lunch on Friday and Saturday!
The new location is much brighter but lacks the European charm of the previous location. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful. Everyone enjoyed our brunch.
Thank you for coming in. This space is much larger so I have lots more wall space to work with. Considering it took us almost 10 years to fill those old walls, and lots of travels, gimme a minute to keep decorating. I'm so happy you enjoyed your brunch
While the food was good, there were a few problems that made the dinner unpleasant: (1) the AC must have been on MAXIMUM power and we were freezing (2) the wait staff were extremely loud when talking to customers... as though they were hard of hearing, though there were no other sounds (3) It took around 15 minutes just to get our drink order to our table.
Thank you for coming in. With social distancing guidlines, OpenSafelyLA , and wearing masks, it's sometimes a challenge to keep every person comfortable. We must keep the fans circulating as a covid precaution. There is only one thermostat maintaining the kitchen, bars and both dining areas. It's usually a steady 71 in the dining room and a toasty 95 in the kitchen. The servers are speaking through masks, and sometimes, louder is the way. I apologize for the delay in getting your drinks.
Hello good food
Thank you so much for coming in!
The cocktails were great!
Thank you so much!!
This was our first time at the new location. It isn't as funky and warm inside, but it will get there, I'm sure. Loved the outdoor seating area. The service was very good and the food was excellent, as usual. Our only complaint was that the mussels were too small. They were the size of clams, if that. Otherwise, we have no complaints. Welcome back, Red Gravy!!!
Thank you so much for coming in! The space is so much bigger than Camp, leaving me with lots of wall to work with. I need more vacations so I can shop again!!!! I'll speak to my fish guy today about the mussels; maybe he has other sizes.
Delicious food, outstanding service, and lovely ambiance on the back patio.
Thank you so much!! I've already got heaters ready to go as soon as the weather changes!
We shared a. Pasta dish, eggplant appetizer and delish bread. Coffee after. They let us take our time over it all. Great dining experience!
Thank you so much for coming in! I'm so pleased you enjoyed your experience!
Not a bad meal, but I don't feel like I must return.
Thank you for coming in.
Food was great! Already plan to go again soon!
Thank you so much! I'm so happy you enjoyed your visit!
Excellent service, a nice little place with homemade pasta. Would dine there again.
Thank you so much!! We've ordered a bigger pasta machine! Come in to see it!
Great food, service and drinks! Absolutely no complaints. We will be back.
Thank you so much for coming in! I'm so happy you enjoyed your visit!
Great food, great service, wonderful experience! Get the meatballs, you won’t regret it.
Thank you so much!! I'm so happy you enjoyed the meatballs!
We had such a great dinner at the new space for Red Gravy. We tried several dishes. I recommend the Monkfish the most. It’s delicious. Then the Zeppoles for dessert was such a welcome change. Roseanne ,the Chef/Owner , came out to greet us. She was so gracious, as well as , we enjoyed her conversation. Such a new gem in the Upper Magazine area. You have to try it.
Thank you so much for coming in!! It was such a pleasure chatting with you. I'm so happy you enjoyed the monkfish!
we had a confirmed reservation guaranteed by a credit card and the restaurant was not ready to seat us even though they had an open table that they were obviously saving for a in case a larger party came in.
I'm not sure how you feel this is the case. All reservations are seated as predetermined by OpenTable during this Covid pandemic. We are not able to switch parties without making sure that other groups, with reservations also, can be accommodated. It is not our practice to save tables for anything other than confirmed reservations. If a guest doesn't care for the assigned tables, as was your case, it can take an extra minute to be sure that future parties are seated safely.
Amazing and authentic food! Everything was delicious and the service was impeccable. Definitely going back for more!
Thank you so much for coming in! I'm so happy you enjoyed your visit.
Adrian was terrific. Beautiful smile even wearing a mask. Food was very good and unique especially for brunch. Highly recommend.
Thank you so much for coming in! I'll be sure to let Adrienne know you mentioned her! I'm so happy you enjoyed your brunch!
One of my favorite restaurants. I don't think the menu is as large as it was at the former location, but the food was just as yummy 😋
Thank you so much for coming in! The kitchen here is significantly smaller than Camp st. We did cut some things out of the old menu. If there is something in particular you are looking for, just let me know.
This was second day opening so I understand. The air conditioning was not up to speed. A bit warm and humid. Very friendly staff. Kitchen a bit slow. Has a good future on Magazine St.
Thank you so much for coming in and understanding about some glitches. The kitchen gets extremely hot and on a 95 degree day I don't know if the AC will be able to keep up. I will speak to the landlord about it. I'm so sorry for any delays from the kitchen. We do make everything to order and frankly, I still find myself looking for where I stocked certain ingredients. I really do hope you come back in. Again, thank you so much!
Love this place
Great service, ambiance is was lovely. The entire brunch was delightful although it was a bit overpriced and menu options were overwhelmingly decadent. I wound up getting pancakes eggs and sausage. Loved them. If you go, definitely spring for the biscuit basket.
Thank you so much for coming in! I'm so happy you enjoyed your meal!
I loved the meatball omelette which was recommended by my server, LeRoy and multiple prior diners. It was well worth a trip over here to try the breakfast. I did feel a little neglected eating by myself, seems that it took me much longer to get coffee refills and my check.
Thank you for coming in; I'm so happy you enjoyed the Polpetta omelet. I'm sorry you felt overlooked. That is never our intention. I will bring this to the attention of the service staff. Again, thank you for coming in.
Super ! Cadre très cool; repas très bon et super service!
Merci beaucoup d'être venu! Je suis tellement contente que vous ayez apprécié votre visite!
From the reservation process all the way to the fantastic farewell, Red Gravy did not disappoint. We visited for a birthday brunch. The warm hospitality and delicious food and drinks made our meal unforgettable. Don’t miss the cannoli pancakes and meatballs! Our server Will took amazing care of us all.
Thank you so much for coming in for your special celebration! I'm so happy we were all able to show you a great time. I'll be sure to let Will know of your kind words.
We are locals and this is a favorite spot whenever we are in downtown NOLA. The food is amazing
Thank you so much for all your continued support! I hope you have a lovely spring!!
A dark restaurant with poor quality food.
I was misled by the great reviews on this site, suggest checking other websites that give a fairer assessment.
For starters, when you enter the restaurant there was a musty smell. Continued, a dirty cup was on the table to welcome me. The pasta sauce was not complex or even tasty, in fact I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a jar sauce.
Nice things: the server tried hard and was attentive. At first I asked for a pasta spoon to twirl my pasta, while I was initially told they only let customers use tea spoons, he went in the kitchen and got me a pasta spoon. The meatball was tasty
Overall, New Orleans is one the great places for food. This is not one of those places. The owner should be ashamed. I suggest passing
I can't control the weather or how the rain can make a musty smell. It's an old building. Clearly, you don't like the decor, oh well. No one has ever mentioned our flatware before, not once, in 10 years. As for the quality of our homemade red gravy, not only am I not ashamed,, but quite the contrary. I couldn't be prouder of the great bistro we've spent the last 10 years making. I can be the sweetest peach on the tree, but there will always be someone who doesn't like peaches.
It’s a bit pricey, but the food and service were INCREDIBLE and worth it. Great service while great music played. We’ll be back!
Thank you so much for coming in!! I'm so happy you enjoyed your visit!
Even if you go for breakfast you must try the meatballs! Leroy was a fantastic server and the food was out of this world. Loved the quaint size and personal attention. We will be back if ever we are in New Orleans!
Thank you so much! Yes, everyone loves Leroy, he's just wonderful!
We travel to New Orleans every other year or so. This is our favorite restaurant. If you want a good meatball be sure and stop by Red Gravy. All the food is good - great brunch.
Thank you so much for your continued support!!! I'm so happy you enjoyed your meals!
This is our favorite place in New Orleans. If you haven’t had a meal here you must do so! Best meatballs ever!
Thank you for your kind review. I'm so happy you enjoyed your visit. Thank you for coming in!
Not too be missed! The ambiance is warm, welcoming, and vibrant. The food is simply amazingly delicious. Comfort food with gourmet preparation - a real foodie delight!
Thank you so much for coming in and saying such nice things about us. I'm so happy you enjoyed your visit. Happy New Year!
Food was excellent and Leroy was an amazing server! I ordered the meatball omelette which was delicious and my mother got one of the seasonal skillet cakes. Both dishes were Leroy's recommendation and he did not steer us wrong! Honestly we couldn't decide which dish was better! It was a little on the pricier side for breakfast but once you take into account the location of the restaurant the prices makes perfect sense. Remember if Leroy is your server listen to his advice. Great meal!
Leroy is such a gem to us; I am so happy he was able to make your visit so enjoyable. Thank you for coming in. Your post has made us all smile this morning!
