    Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. We were 3 adults and one child plus a take out order. Our glasses never got more than half empty before someone was refilling them. The food was outstanding and our waitress made great suggestions. We enjoyed light piano music but were still able to converse in a normal tone of voice. We will be back on our next trip to NOLA

    The food was amazing. The artichoke soup was a 10, the redfish piccata was excellent but too expensive. I had a signature drink that was lovely. I think the server could have given us the back story of the restaurant & told us the specials. It was our anniversary & first time there. I felt a bit rushed & we didn’t get a champagne toast or a dessert or anything. I will be back but it’s a bit pricey for nothing I haven’t had before. I was great full for a nice restaurant on the West Bank.

    If you like eggplant and crabmeat they have several dishes that are absolutely delicious. The menu is pretty diverse. Veal, shrimp, crab something for everyone. Turtle soup, seafood gumbo, and cream of artichoke soup are also recipes that they have been serving for the last 20 years.

    We were celebrating my 60th birthday. With my children and grandchild. One of my favorite restaurants on the westbank. The restaurant is elegantly decorated and clean. The piano player is a fantastic touch. We had my son's rehearsal party there in 2013 and had the restaurant to ourselves. What a magnificent night that was!

    Amazing place to have a date. Beautiful and kind hard workers. Food is amazing and personally the seafood gumbo is always my favorite but I still love the Italian food. Always have a great time and can’t wait to go back. Definitely recommended to my friends that go to homecoming and prom. Great food!!

    We love going to Tony Mandina's! It is a family run business, and you can tell that this wonderful family cares about their customers! It is such a great place to go for a quiet "date night"-type of evening or a special event you are celebrating with a large group. The prices are reasonable, the service is above and beyond, and the food is always AMAZING! Our waitress, Sheila, is always so attentive to her customers and you know by her service (and her smile) that she loves her job and is very good at it! We also love hearing the great music while we are eating, and we love Ernest who helps us park and get out of the lot safely when we are done eating. Mr. Tony and Mrs. Grace are always there having dinner at the front of the restaurant when we leave, and they make US feel like family too! Don't miss out going to Tony Mandina's!
