We went for a birthday brunch with family, including 2 small children and 2 older children. Everyone enjoyed the food, and the service was awesome. The little kids made a big mess and were a bit loud at times, but the waitstaff and bartender (we sat at a big table right next to the bar) were very patient and accommodating. The cinnamon roll was a big hit. Very sweet but so delicious, and they only serve it on Sunday.
I've been going to Toup's on Carrolton for years, but this was my first time at this location. We came for the bottomless mimosas and the three of us got several items from the menu to try a bunch and everything was great. This may become my pregame hangout before the Dome.
The food was good.... tasty.. the wait staff was terrific. Conversation of bourbons with knowledgeable staff and a the lagniappes just added to the evening. We will def return.
The food was very good, and the drinks were awesome. Service was on the spot and with great attitude.
My second visit to Toups South and am looking forward to the next visit. I've visited for Sunday Brunch on Easter and it was very impressive. This time I brought some business colleagues on our first evening to town. We shared appetizers and mains which included the nightly special of softshell crabs. The menu is composed of thoughtful new Southern cuisine that is locally sourced.
Outstanding place with friendly wait staff, delicious food. Very good spot to bring out of town guests.
We went for the coolinary lunch. The octopus was delicious but you got very little of it. The fritters were good. For entrees the lamb sandwich was pretty average and the crab salad was delicious but again very little of it. I think portions are too small for the price.
Chili rubbed octopus great but would like to see with more octopus. Braised lamb sandwich textures and flavors blended together, tasted good but expected more differentiation for this level of restaurant.
Plates were very small. Octopus served on an oversized bowl. Food was tastee.
One of my go to restaurants. Never disappointed with the food!
Excellent food. The Culinary New Orleans menu was especially tasty. Very professional and personable service. Overall superb.
Lunch date with my work buddy, and first time there: we shared four items from the Coolinary menu and all were delicious! Fish and meat cooked tender, everything had an amazing sauce (garlicky, pesto, minty, etc.). And the server we had was a gem! He was very friendly and wonderful.
Great brunch! I would definitely love to go back for dinner.
Dinner at Toups South. So good I only took one photo! Lovely boudin, crawfish and tasso gratin, blue crab pasta, panna cotta, cheese, wine. All excellent with really great flavour & fantastic service.
Incredible service, went for a birthday and the staff went above and beyond! The food is so fresh and has so much soul!
Food was superlative, service also very good. I was surprised to see the restaurant nearly empty on a Friday night at 7 PM, but the kitchen was in excellent form nonetheless.
The food was great as usual. The service was perfect. They have such a wonderful staff. Always extremely welcoming and knowledgeable. Can’t wait to come back!
Another fantastic Toup's experience. The small plates are the way to go. Cocktails don't disappoint and the staff is top notch. Minus 1 star for the location, not the best neighborhood, although the restaurant is safely tucked in the actual SoFaB museum.
Great dining experience! We stopped in for a pre-concert dinner, ate at the bar and thoroughly enjoyed our cocktails and chat with their newest bartender, John Michael. The food was plentiful and delicious. The aroma as delectable as the taste!
Excellent food and a very creative menu. Craft beers are all local and great prices!
A must try for both locals and tourists.
Delicious. I had seared redfish, my wife had the fried chicken. Both were great. Can definitely recommend
Great. Incredible food
Just moved into the neighborhood & swung by for a last-minute Father's Day brunch. Kiddo had the waffles, I partook in the pastrami hash, & my partner had an off-menu burger finished with foie gras, bleu cheese, & fried onions. Everything was great & Gregory took wonderful care of us. Would definitely go back again & will be considering it for a close-by spot to grab a drink. Super cool space with an open kitchen & bar area, all tucked next to the SoFAB, it would be an excellent choice after browsing the museum.
Thought I overheard the (very handsome, & presumably) chef de cuisine talking to one of the staff members about wings...& I'm truly a sucker for wings, but don't see them on the menu...perhaps a secret menu item or upcoming special? I'll definitely be back to find out!
My husband got to choose the restaurant for Fathers’ Day brunch. Since he avoids vegetables, I’m a vegetarian, and our teenagers are picky, new-to-us restaurants are chancy. Lol But everyone was impressed by Toups South! The husband loved the biscuits with crab butter as well as his entree of pastrami with sweet potato hash (the dish and the portion size were huge!). The kids enjoyed their burger and waffle, but the waffle was very sweet due to the cane syrup — so next time he’ll order syrup on the side. My cold squash soup was divine, and my cinnamon roll was anything but a “small plate” as advertised. Fluffy and well-balanced, I’d go back for the Sunday-brunch-only Cinnamon Roll in a heartbeat! Service was exceptional — constant drink refills, no food delays, and thorough explanation of menu items and specials. Perfect service and culinary delights — no complaints about the cool, industrial feel of the venue, which boasts the Southern Food and Beverage Museum visible through a curtain in the shared space. Very pleased and very much looking forward to our return.
Wonderful dinner with out of town guests. Everything was delicious, good value, creative choices. Definitely order the biscuits with crab butter. Carrot cake with cinnamon ice cream was divine.
always a pleasure to be here. I'm slightly biased as I frequent here pretty often. But the best thing about it is, the food is so good I always want to come in and enjoy a good meal.
Great atmosphere, excellent service and delicious food!
Definitely recommend sharing the fried pork chops with a side of veggies!
The buttermilk biscuits with crab butter were out of this world! Large portions on the skirt steak sides, pastrami sandwich, and chicken sandwich. Food was delicious and we would go again.
Our party of four was very pleasantly surprised by the innovative and delicious take on dishes that sound like upscale comfort food, but are in fact much more. All four entrees were exceptional in their own right. My fish dish featured a unique and wonderful "x-o butter," which was an Asian-inspired brown butter sauce that enhanced the fish. It was served with collard greens and mushrooms. My son's "hot" fried chicken was a unique take on Nashville Hot Chicken, but so crispy, perfectly cooked and just better. Another son's NY strip steak was one of the best flavored steaks I have ever tasted and my wife's duck confit with risotto was excellent as well. The chef was putting out every plate from an open kitchen and the service was helpful and attentive, when needed. We didn't have room for dessert, but it looked and sounded as inspired as the entrees.
Best meal I've had in New Orleans. Eat here. Fried chicken and venison tartar were so good.
The waiter that we had was terrible, he acted like he could careless that we were paying customers. He had the personality of paint drying on the wall.
Lackluster service and food was just ok. Fries tasted like they were soaked in fat, ribs didn’t seem fresh at all. Overall I got the impression food wasn’t fresh and much of it was processed/pre-prepared.
Sat at the food counter, super fun, fantastic food & the Chef behind the counter was super cool!
First time here and EVERYTHING was phenomenal! The atmosphere was relaxing. Definitely coming back with friends! And will make enough time to visit the museum next door.
Absolutely sublime. I couldn’t speak through most of dinner. 12 food obsessed friends from NYC & Chicago, and we all agreed this was one of the best meals we’ve had in a long long time. Hats off to Chef Toups who was in the kitchen.
Absolutely fantastic food, wine, and overall experience!
Excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. Hamburger and chicken sandwich excellent. Carrot cake amazing.
Good food in a fun setting.
I was in town for a business meeting and had Toups on my list of places to go. We’ve followed Isaac since Top Chef and love him. It was better than we expected. The food was fabulous and Lucious, our server, could not have been more courteous and fun. This is amazing New Orleans food in a wonderful, approachable atmosphere. We will recommend it and be back!
We live right near Toups on Carrollton so brought a few friends to try out Toups South for brunch. Really cool dining room, fun presentation, relaxed dining experience. I'd definitely return!
We had a group eat there during a convention and it was by far the best meal of our trip. Delicious biscuits, cracklins, and I had an outstanding redfish and kale entree that was to die for. I will definitely go back.
