This was our favorite restaurant in New Orleans. We’ve been here several times in the past five years, but this is our first time since the pandemic started. Disappointed with various touches that we had taken for granted at Tableau. Could not get oysters as they informed us that they had no-one to open them. Waiter also informed us that he had no bread that was not good enough to serve.
The food was not exceptional this time, just average at best.
We have celebrated our anniversary in here, several times, and they always bring out a complimentary creme brûlée. Not this time.
Only restaurant in New Orleans that did not even ask to see vaccination card.
If it was not for the amazing location, we would not return.

Enjoyed our dinner here. The restaurant is in a prime location - Corner of Jackson Square near the church. We had a fish dish and my husband had a beef dish. Both very good and enjoyable. We had an early dining as we were headed to the Krewe of Boo parade right down the street. Not my most spectacular memorable dinner while in town but lovely, nevertheless.

Jewel is a jewel!
Don't dare let her escape!
She gets absolutely everything exactly right and vigilantly watches over her guests.
Whenever we eat at Tableau, we always hope and pray the jewel will be our server.
What a wonderful and cheerful member of your staff.
Everything on the menu is great and I really love the gnocchi. Wish I had the recipe.
There béarnaise sauce with the chicken is the best and I wish I had that recipe too.
We usually eat before the theater and what a perfect way to begin the evening.
With the very best regards,
Ed Chapman

We had an early meal prior to a play next door. I had the fish, which was over-cooked and dry. However, the duck gumbo appetizer was terrific. The cocktails were outstanding as well. It was a mixed bag overall.

Service was fine, though curiously the waiter did not go to the only woman in the group first, which is customary. All of the entrees were acceptable, but not outstanding.

In a city with many great restaurants, I wouldn't go back.

A disappointing dinner out Saturday night at a restaurant that presents itself as a high-end restaurant. We asked for a "quiet table" and were seated in the 2nd floor main dining room. Table provided was next to bus station, across from bar, and adjacent to waiter path through external doors to balcony seating. Not at all quiet, or desireable in any way, and hostess should certainly have known that?!

We asked to move to a different table and waitress helped us accomplish that.
Food ended up being very good, no complaints there. Unfortunately soon after we were seated, a group of 6 loud drunks arrived and sat at an adjacent table.
Some kind of "business meeting" (?on a Saturday night). Quite loud and obnoxious and ruining the atmosphere for us. One of the women at the table was dressed in cut offs and tank top, management at this and most other French Quarter restaurants seem to have adjusted their standards.

Our waitress came over at 8:00 and announced that her shift was over and she would be departing. (?waiter change in mid-meal at a high end restaurant? ). Replacement waitress was not in sync with our order. We were served, ate, and quickly left.

Overall a disappointing experience. I'd suggest avoiding the main dining room on the 2nd floor, it was more of a bar than a dining room.

I had a lunch reservation. It took almost one hour after I was seated before my sandwich was served.During my wait athe waiter came by one time after I flagged him down. He never cam by after my sandwich was served to ask if I needed anything else. And the fish sandwich was really not very good although it was pricey.

I cannot think of a single reason to ever return.

Our courtyard dining experience was excellent. It seemed that they were short on waitstaff, so service was slower, but our server had the best sense of humor, so warm and genuine and she did everything for us as she culd. Our food was delicious and the weather was perfect.
