The seafood is amazing! If on special, get the horseradish encrusted salmon. Otherwise you can't go wrong with the seafood in parchment of crab cakes. One of my favorite places in Old Town.

Although our meal at the Warehouse was adequate, we had expected much better than we experienced there, especially for the price. My fruits de mer dish entree was OK, but definitely not a meal to remember. That being said, the oysters on the half shell we had before our entrees were large and succulent.

The oysters were delicious. The crab cake on the Caesar salad had a bit too much filler. The pecan crusted chicken was delicious.

Nothing to write home about and prices way to high for what you get but that just might be Old Town rental prices being passed along. Almost not worth the extra long wait of service 2 hours for appetizers and meal. That’s too long.

The food was amazing, the service was excellent. We got hungry earlier than our reservation time, and the host had no problems changing our reservation.
Recommend the She Crab Soup, very delicious.
We sat outside and chuckled at the plate envy from people walking by.

I have business luncheons here a lot and the Host is excellent. Yesterday, I ran into a few issues, most notably were the flies on the window (we had a window table). Very annoying so we ended up taking care of 3 of them ourselves.

Overall, it is still one of my go to places for a business lunch.

Main courses were excellent. I particularly enjoyed the catfish.
Portions were extremely generous. Our party regretted ordering an appetizer … unnecessary..
Our salads were disappointing. Too much creamy dressing on room temperature greens…

The Warehouse merits a repeat visit for those with a taste for New Orleans.

My friend and I met for dinner. I got the chicken principle salad for $20. It was so bad. Dry, old, room temp, tasteless chicken. She had a crab cake salad. So bland. The food sucked. We both had one drink. Then, right when we left the restaurant, we both felt lightheaded, and literally, we both fainted. I don’t know if we were roofied? Or the food had something? Or maybe we were sitting under a gas pipe or something. But it was definitely the restaurant. I’ve never fainted in my life. It was the weirdest thing that’s ever happened to me. And the food was terrible. Overall, never going back. I wish I could get my money back, cause it wasn’t cheap.

We had brunch for my husbands birthday. The food was good, nothing exceptional. It was worth trying. I loved that you got a glass of champagne with brunch entrees.
