This was our first time at Tchefuncte's. My husband and I went for a date night, we had heard great things. The service and ambiance was excellent! The food overall was delicious. Extensive wine list. We purchased a bottle of pinot that the waitress recommended and it was great.

The negatives... We ordered a pasta dish as an appetizer and it was a very small portion, but it was delicious. The beet and goat cheese salad was flavorful until I found a hair in it. I didn't mention this to the waitress, I just stopped eating it.

I ordered an asian inspired fish dish - the fish was cooked perfectly and had lots of flavor, but the fried cauliflower that came with it was a complete miss, for me. It reminded me of a funnel cake type batter which was a weird pairing with the fish.
My husband ordered the duck and dirty rice, again, the protein was cooked to perfection but the dirty rice was dry and just not very good.

It's a great special occasion type place. The food was a bit pricey. I have no problem paying a high price for a great meal but was a little disappointed with the portion size of the pasta, the sides that came with the main course and the hair in my food.

I will give Tchefuncte's another try, maybe for brunch, next time.

Can't beat the setting and decor of this restaurant, but the food is not great. The food was very good when they first opened, but it has gone down. Also, they need to change the menu.

Our experience for Thanksgiving was outstanding! Awesome experience for our first time dining at your beautiful restaurant. Our service (Nicole and Victoria) and food was excellent. The presentation was impressive. Top notch and would definitely dine again. Highly recommend!! We dine out quite often and your restaurant is one of top five in the greater NO area. Loved the fall decor too!

Had dinner the night before Thanksgiving. We ate early (4:00) and no one was there, but everything was so perfect! Gabriel was our server. He knows that menu so well. He and staff were so professional! All of our food was hot and delicious. He made sure all our special requests were honored. I got the grilled oysters and Australian Wagyu hanger steak…. OMG it practically melts in your mouth! Highly recommend!

This is THE BEST restaurant on the North and South shores hands down! I brought my closest friends to celebrate Friendsgiving and they were all so impressed and left very full and very happy. We are so lucky to have a place like this in our backyard and there is honestly nothing else like Tchefuncte's that even compares. From the incredible food to the fantastic drinks to the outstanding service, they always blow it out of the water which is why I keep coming back! I can't wait to bring more people to show them why I love this place so much! If you haven't been yet you MUST go!!!

Beautiful restaurant with very comfortable seating. I went there for brunch and food and service were good! I had lobster sardous which was good but could have used a couple more pieces of lobster. We will definitely go back again and try the dinner menu!

This was a repeat visit for me, but a first time for my guest. The soft shell crab was amazing as usual, as was our Caesar Salad and Turtle soup. She loved the fish, it was moist and fresh, however my main course, prime rib was 3/4 grizzle & fat and was cold and only scantly seasoned ( I was disappointed in this). I love everything about the restaurant, but wish they could do better with the prime rib. I will avoid this dish next time.

I love this place! Always a great experience. Had amazing stone crab claws last night. Get there before the season is over because they are the best stone crabs I’ve ever had, even better than Joe's and I travel to Joe's yearly! Always highly recommend this gem on the Northshore.

What a fun afternoon. We had wonderful cocktails from the bar, then ordered our brunch. I got the Lobster Sardou and others at the table had steak and eggs, avocado toast and duck confit. We tried the praline bacon - delish! All around a great experience.

Our friends are aging and every day with them is a special occasion. I requested a table so that we could enjoy the view of the river. We were greeted by lovely Amber, who seated us at my most favorite 4 top~ the best! Our server, Pierre, was attentive, friendly and respectful. I am looking forward to booking future events.

We had a wonderful lunch last Thursday. Brittney was a fantastic waitress, and we will request her when we return. Everything was perfect!

This restaurant is just what this area needed. I love how they make everything from scratch.
I understand how labor intensive it is to make gnocchi, and was very happy to be able to enjoy that!

We were seated, and my 5 guests and me, with dark clothing, were given dark napkins which was a great start! The staff was friendly, informative and very attentive. The chef’s welcoming muffuletta puff pastry was light & tasty, and everyone at the table enjoyed their fresh salads, soups, soft shell crab appetizers. Fabulous wine & cocktail selections. The preparation & presentation of the veal, fish & steak main courses were perfection. The praline cake a la mode was exquisite! Can’t wait to go back!
