    We had the most glorious meal at the Bubbles and Lobster event. The food was innovative, fresh, and simply delicious. The wine/champagne pairings were amazing! We cannot wait to come back!

    Every dining experience that I have at The Bower is sensational! Courses are always spaced out perfectly, there is more than enough food to share, and the ingredients are amongst some of the best in the city. The service was spectacular as were the craft cocktails that are all seasonally rotated through. Always a lovely dining experience, will be back very soon!

    I think The Bower is a lovely and respectable restaurant. I don't think they currently have enough wait staff to serve the size of their establishment. It took a very long time from ordering to getting the food, to finding the waiter, to getting the bill. The staff seemed harried and constantly behind. The food was fine. It was mid blowingly delicious. It was way better average. Friends from out of town will feel like they are in a nice restaurant with good food. But it wasn't great food. It was fine. Too much breading on the oysters. Beet salad was very good. The chicken in the "Sunday Stew" was overcooked. The sausage in the "Sunday Stew" was very good. The pasta that was served with the "Sunday Stew" was overcooked and cold by the time it came out to the table. I didn't like the flourless chocolate/peanut butter tort. The whipped cream in the Strawberry Shortcake was delicious. The biscuit/scone in the "Strawberry Shortcake" was hard. Overall, it was fine. I'm sure I'll go back. Most of the waitstaff was very nice and hospitable. One of the hosts seemed a bit mean and authoritarian. It was fine.

    We visited the restaurant as a party of 5, including two seniors and a toddler. The food was really good, and while the service was slow, our server was very nice. However, we had a disappointing experience with the seating arrangements. We had made a reservation for standard seating, but the hostess tried to seat us outside. When we pointed out that our reservation was for indoor seating, she falsely claimed that the outside seating was standard. After that, we spoke to a server who confirmed that this was not standard seating and managed to secure an indoor table for us, which was what we originally reserved. The hostess's behavior was absolutely unacceptable and she should be ashamed of her actions.

    This dinner made our experience in New Orleans. From the minute we walked in we knew this was going to be incredible. The host listen to our request and sat us at a nice table inside/outside (he checked in with us to make sure it was ok). Melissa took amazing care of us! She gave great recommendations and was very attentive. Overall she made us feel welcome and excited to be there. The food was everything and more. The portions sizes were generous and the food outstanding. There was not a thing we ordered that we did not like. We had a friend who was vegetarian and there we great options for her too. Overall just wonderful. Thank you Melissa for taking such great care of us making my bachelor dinner special. We left happy, full, and excited to return. Cannot recommend this place more, especially for larger parties (9 of us total).

    Plates make it seem like there’s more food in the dish. Having to be seated next door in a completely different building with completely different vibe was goofy. Moreover, the plates of warm food were being walked from the real restaurant, taken outside (uncovered), and brought to the annex building next door—the food was room-temp at best. Paying over $100 on a simple dinner (two entrees, water, and one cocktail) for two was pricey for what you get—I would have been good at $60.

    Reservation for 2 to celebrate a birthday. Seated at a small two top. Asked to move to a larger table & was told they were full. When we left the same four tops were still available as well as more four tops here others had left. One app was outstanding, the other was like eating a salt lick. Basil spaghetti was delicious and smaller than the palm of my hand.

    Thanks for the feedback, DevonG. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed our basil spaghetti. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience you faced due to the table availability to move you to a 4 top table. We value your feedback and will certainly work on improving our seating arrangements to ensure better service in the future. We hope to serve you again soon.

    Great place to pop in for dinner. Food was great and service was good considering the servers had to handle bartending the night we were there. Building is well appointed and in a good location to walk further uptown or to the quarter.

    Such a hidden gem down Magazine Street. Definitely worth the visit. It’s hard to have a restaurant be both bright and intimate. The Bower does it beautifully. The food was amazing - appetizers were amazing. Entrees were delicious and well portioned.

    The service was on point; however, the whipped feta appetizer with pickles was extremely salty, especially, the carrots were salty to the point of being edible. We could not tell if the spicy shrimp arancini was spicy or contained shrimp. Quiet bland. Having said this, the pasta dishes were outstanding. We enjoyed them.
