Our service was wonderful but I think the rest was unremarkable. The seafood was good but not better than anywhere else with the same price point. Same with the drinks. I would say this place is pretty solid but not fine dining.

We've been to Old Town many, many times - but this was our first time dining at the Warehouse. It certainly won't be our last!! Mo, our waiter, greeted us well, answered all our questions - and provided great service. My wife truly enjoyed the Fruit de Mere and I was pleased with oysters and the Filet Mignon. Highly recommend dining here.

We are working our way through the menu. Our server was outstanding----she noticed that my meal arrived incorrectly/sent it back before she served it to me/ replaced with the way I had ordered it (sauce on the side) Not many people would notice/take notice!

Thank you.

First I want to just acknowledge that the restaurant was open during Covid. I know it’s not easy to operate with the new restrictions so I’m appreciative of that. I saw so many positive reviews about this place and wanted to give it a try. Our server never introduced himself. The drinks were pretty good. Our food came out lukewarm and took awhile to hit the table. Was never offered dessert or an after dinner drink. Overall, for the price I think there are better places to dine.

The food was really good; however, the service was just okay compared to other restaurants. Unfortunately, a large “water bug” appeared on the wall right behind us, so that quickly concluded our evening. I remembered this restaurant from years ago specifically because of their chocolate creme brûlée. However, I had to take it home and it wasn’t as good as I remember. The staff was very non-chalant about the bug and said that it happens on the first floor sometimes. I had hoped to have a nice birthday dinner but unfortunately I cannot say that I did.

We dined in on a Monday night. Tables were spaced out and it felt very comfortable. They offered a beautiful and delicious 3 course special featuring a very tender Cab Sauv Short Rib, which I highly recommend. Cocktails were well crafted. Service was spectacular, but make time for a long dinner.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed our meals and drinks. I ordered crab and shrimp beignets and she crab soup, and both were delicious. Our server was accommodating but rushed us to order. The restaurant was great for date night. There was a very loud party of three seated approximately 6 feet away. Other than, it was a lovely experience.

The food and the service was wonderful. The tables were spaced appropriately for social distancing and the manager came to check on us twice. Good value and a great way to celebrate a loved one passing the bar exam and becoming an attorney 😊

We had a wonderful dinner. They have lots of space inside because of the tents outside. The meal and service were absolutely fantastic. We were in New Orleans in early November, the the cajon dishes we had were better than those we had while in LA. Great Cocktails. Key Lime Cheesecake was to die for.

Its an institution and rightly so. My biggest ding is the stingy portion on the Oyster Po Boy (or whatever they call it) Flavor is fine, service is great, but when you are expecting New Orleans style food and you get a six inch Po Boy with barely a single layer of really, really small oysters...well it kind of kills the buzz. Fries are obviously frozen food service industry product. Not bad but not what you expect from a place as iconic as this. Go. Don't pass it up but keep the expectations in check.

I come to the place only because of the food. I know that the service is a big part of the industry, i have nothing bad to say about the service it was ok/good. But the food was a disappointment. They are claiming themselves as a NOLA restaurant. we ordered
"eggs Hussarde" allegedly they should be with grilled tomatoes. tomatoes were raw and to be honest i was expecting something fried (like fried tomatoe) the sides were like i am on a strict diet - steamed squash and broccoli (ew) not what i was expecting in a New Orleans restaurant.
