The food and drinks were wonderful as always, and the music that night was so great! Casmé was a delightful singer. Hope to be back soon!

We were sat at the table of our choosing (in a booth where you can close the curtains) and tried multiple items off the menu. As it was Fat Tuesday, we did not have expectations of stellar service but we ended up having some of the best food and service of our lives. Everything was spectacular.

Amazing food for a “ bar bites “ restaurant . Quiet place to eat in the French quarter even on fat Tuesday. Excellent service friendly people and a very comprehensive bar

Limited menu but the food is very good. Upbeat jazz music in an English Pub was a little off but it is New Orleans.

The ambiance is probably one of the BEST in New Orleans! The private feel of our little, romantic booth was amazing and our waitress was phenomenal! If my review was solely dependent on the drinks we ordered and ambiance, i would have given the place 5 stars across the board! However, the food was SO salty. I ordered what would be the shrimp and grits and my boyfriend ordered the burger. I couldn’t eat half of my dish, because it was that salty. Now, i love my salt. I’m from MS where we put salt on our salt, then fry it. If i have to stop eating a dish, because there’s too much salt, there’s a problem. My boyfriend said his burger was on the salty side, but not nearly as bad as mine. He enjoyed what he ordered! Other than that one complaint, this place is Amazing!!

The customer service was extraordinary from the time we walked in the door. Our waitress, Ashley, was courteous, prompt, and patient. She took the time to answer all our questions about menu items and drinks. She offered recommendations that were spot on. I will definitely recommend this place.

Food was overpriced for what it was. Bland. Just a piano player for music, not band. Had requested happy birthday, but never got. Service was very slow. Nice but slow.

There has apparently been a change in the program and service at the Bombay Club. We were very
disappointed. The music has changed no longer the jazz trio but only a solo by a mediocre player. We
noticed a lot of empty tables and people arriving and then quickly leaving.

The Hunter Chicken dish which I have ordered for many years has a much small portion of chicken.

This place has relaxed, low-light ambiance which is nice, and the service was friendly and attentive. Unfortunately, the food was abysmal. We went for their Thanksgiving dinner and most things on the plate tasted like they may have been frozen at some point in their recent past. Hopefully, their standard menu fare is better, but I wouldn't roll the dice when you're in a city with so many fantastic dining options.

Bombay is one of my favorite restaurants in Nola! I’ve been here three times this past year! Me and my friend discovered it on opentable and have been obsessed ever since! They have the best happy hour specials and the happy hour times are incredible! They also have some small bites during happy hour that are phenomenal! Tonight I just went to dinner by myself on the way back from a play! I sat outside and it was a wonderful experience! My waiter was attentive and helpful! The patio was very chill, even after a Saints game! I ordered the Caesar salad and the crab and chorizo beignets! Those beignets are life changing and one of my favorite things they have! Also had a cheeky cocktail as it was happy hour and I got the A Bitter Cucumber! Sooo refreshing and delicious!

Food and drinks were amazing, but our server didn’t match that level of standard. We definitely would’ve ordered more drinks, etc. had we seen our waitress more frequently! However, the food was spectacular!

Overall, enjoyed the food and drink. But the drinks took more time than normal. We were given the excuse that they were finishing up with happy hour. Sorry but happy hour patrons should trump restusrant patrons.

Nice establishment in the French quarter away from the noise. Excellent bar and tasty menu, though not many options and a bit expensive. If your looking for a quiet place to eat and relax with friends while enjoying New Orleans night life, not a bad choice.

Our initial service was confusing. My drink was ordered after my table mates ( they brought theirs from the bar). We had to ask several times for it and it was wrong when it finally came. The manager was excellent and went out of his way to correct the matter, educating us on Martinis along the way. The food was really good. Nice intimate atmosphere.

Sat at the bar and had a lovely time. Bartender was nice and made the best Sazerac . Food was good, but the cheesecake was different than I’m used to, and thought maybe that’s how it’s done in the south. Overall, I’d go back again.

Live music without the chaos of nearby Bourbon Street, excellent food and service in a old fashioned English gentleman's club environment. It's a staple everytime I'm in NOLA. Dont miss it.

The server was very distracted. Mixing up orders, forgetting things we ordered (albeit not charging for the forgotten items). Not getting the orders straight once ordered. Very frustrating. The some segments of our orders were very salty and others were perfectly fine. The boudin appetizer balls, crab cake beignets and hummus were very good. Our salads forgotten completely. Entrees overly salty overall.
Love the atmosphere of this place and would really want to spend many more evenings here, but just don’t see that happening. Maybe for late night drink when we really have no other options. AND maybe for a light snack, but not for dinner. Sadly.
Waiter service needs to greatly step up. .......Really destroyed the evening.
