It was so good. We just did small plates and had a charcuterie board that was out of this world.
A great meal with a good atmosphere. Service was wonderful too! I also love that they have some fun concoctions for us teetotalers.
Food was great. Waitstaff seemed a little flustered when we first arrived and it took a while to get our order and drinks put in, but once they got back on their feet everything was perfect.
Wonderful meal! Elevated southern food. We brought family from out of town (well, from BR), and they loved the meal too. Open kitchen was great. Chefs are friendly and informative. Such a great vibe and a wonderful part the museum. Best crackins ever. The real deal, not mislabeled chicharones (which are great too but are not a cracklings). And we got to see the whole process of making them, which was cool. We will definitely be coming back.
Great service and amazing food! Our waitress, Mackenzie, was extremely attentive and the fried chicken was second to none.
Phenomenal food and service. Drove to New Orleans for a day trip and decided on Toups after watching an episode of Chef’s Night Out. The food was beyond anything we’d had before. Original dishes served with Louisiana hospitality. Definitely the food that we will compare every other meal out to for a while.
Great food, awesome Chef....what more could you want?
The ambience was great. The decor of the restaurant was very nice. I felt that some of the food was a little salty however the other people in my party did not feel the same. We will go again.
Some of the best food I’ve ever eaten.
Food was not bad but mostly disappointing for the price. The fried chicken basically tastes like buffalo wings. The fish stew was fine but I expect better for $30. The steak was very good. Toups Julep was awful. Server seemed weary of serving even at 730 when we sat down. The portions are huge. Fried chicken could easily serve two instead of one. Sourdough biscuits didn’t taste sourdough-ish and the crab fat butter sounded way more delicious than it was. Didn’t hate it but would not recommend and would not return. Not in a city with so many options.
Everything about the experience was wonderful but the food was above and beyond! Can't wait to go back.
We were seated at the bar then greeted by Seamus ..he was very engaging and kept his team on track throughout our meal.. after we perused the menu for selections, he helped us make a decision.. cauliflower tasso gratin for appetizer, louisiana gulf stew for one and duck confit for the other.. both were prepared excellently and the flavors were spot on..things like the smoked turnips that came with the duck and the well made biscuits with the stew were welcome additions. .the rest of the staff were very courteous and attentive to our wants and needs.. i would highly recommend Toups south to anyone visiting or living in new orleans..
We went for our third meal in the last few weeks, and all three meals were simply outstanding. The menu is creative and each dish was perfectly executed. The service has been spot on each time. I think that Toups South has really hit its stride, just like its sister restaurant.
Service , Drink and Food = GREAT. My wife and I shared the Special, Roasted Brussels and Broccoli with Pimento as a App. She had the Toups Burger which was excellent I ordered the Fried Oysters in Creamed Kale. Pro-tip: Add the Farm Egg poached in...
Went with family visiting from Oregon. My husband, native of New Orleans is pretty sure he had the best fried chicken ever. Brought our 18 mo old toddler and it went well, the space is big and loud enough that I don't think a toddler was a disturbance. They don't have a printed kids meal but the waiter offered some kid friendly option even though we opted to have her eat from our food, it was a nice gesture of acceptance. My visitors loved it and I thought though they got an authentic southern meal.
Chef Isaac was there. He is a gracious host. He stopped by the table and took a picture with my daughter. The oysters and the fried chicken are phenomenal.
OK but not up to New Orleans standard. Lunch at 2:00 PM so not busy at all. Oysters were overcooked and overly salty (I know oysters can be salty and I like salt). Cracklins were excellent. Boudin was marginal.
Everything was delicious!!
Huge disappointment. We sat for our reservation at the kitchen bar to watch the staff cooking. Our waiter seemed harried and annoyed although it wasn’t yet full. We got our drink orders in and when we ordered dinner we were told no redfish. I was pretty bummed as there was nothing else on the menu that appealed. So I grudgingly ordered the crab salad. After we begin on our main courses we hear orders for redfish. A few minutes later the check pulls out a big bag of fish from the fridge behind him. We ask if it’s redfish and he says yes. Our waiter catches the tail end of this and we tell him we’re not happy. He takes off and grabs the chef and pulls him behind a wall. Right in front of us! When he comes back we ask for the manager. He comes over and we explain what happened and he says he wasn’t here before and what do we want him to do about it. Unbelievable. I say I want the entire dinner comped and he says no, but he’ll comp my $10 salad - which was nothing special. Really felt like the entire staff was an unprofessional bunch of bozos. Would never go back and would dissuade anyone who asked about trying it.
Had a fabulous meal. Cocktails were great, appetizers were tasty, and the entrees were delicious. Service was spot on and recommendations were right on point as well.
Great burger and one of the better beer selections in town.
Service and food were great. Nice place to visit and have a great drinks and food
The Concierge at our hotel recommended Toups and we are so glad he did! Great food and knowledgeable super friendly service. We will definitely go here again on our next visit to New Orleans
Not as good as the original location. Maybe it was just what we ordered. The other location blew me away, this visit left me regretting my choice to give them a chance. They were out of the item I wanted so I got the fried chicken, it was alright, but I didn't go to Toupes to spend that much money for just alright. Other dish was seafood stew and was really small but tasted good.
I had an absolutely amazing NYE dinner at Toups South.
Not going to lie. I did not have a reservation or set plans until very late, and found the restaurant on OpenTable. Since they are quite new I understood the availability and the Yelp reviews were great, so I gave it a shot.
It was $85/person for a four-course menu, a bit more than I was originally planning on spending but I can assure you it was worth it. Since I was with my boyfriend we shared all dishes and had the opportunity to try all of the different options in the menu.
We started off with Smoked Murder Point Oysters, they were fresh and tasty. And it followed with Blue Crab Salad and Beef Tartar as first, Gulf Oyster Stew and Roasted Heirloom Carrots as second, Pan Roasted Scallops and Red Wine Braised Beef Short Rib as fourth with Satsuma Tart and Trio of Chocolate for dessert.
Everything was fabulous but my remarks go to the tartar, scallops and short rib.
Service was a bit chaotic, since the restaurant was full and they were probably short-staffed. But everyone was nice, smiley and gave us the southern hospitality you would expect.
Would come back in a heatbeat.
Excellent food and service!!
The Chef was in the house and the meal was incredible.
The foie gras with banana bread was unreal. Everything was truly amazing and I highly recommend sitting at the kitchen bar.
Everything you order is amazing and the service is also.
Just very disappointing. My second visit. When we walked in, there were about 15 tables, 1 one waitress and 1 guy who seemed to be waiting tables, bartending and seating folks. As soon as we sat down, the person at the table next to us sent back their food. We finally got the waitress' attention to take our order but she was carrying something and we asked if she wanted to put it down. Nope she said. She didn't tell us the specials (though the did the other tables) and took our order without writing it down. Come on. There is no reason to show off your memorization skills when you could just write down the order (3 drinks, 2 apps, 2 entrees, 1 side) to make sure your guests get it right. Drinks took forever but I understand because there was one bartender who was slammed. 2 drinks sat on the bar for a while and the wine she forgot to put in then blamed it on the bartender. Then told us it was his fault and she gave us a "little extra wine" (imperceptible) but please don't tell the manager or she'll get in trouble. Seriously. How about she tell the manager she forgot to put the wine order in and that the front of house is slammed and maybe we should comp them a glass of wine. We don't want to help you steal from the business. Then the apps come, they were fine. The entrees came. The fried chicken came in a huge pot but was tiny, greasy and tasted only of tabasco. The pork chop (which Ive had before) was just fried fry. All grease, fat and bone. Totally unappetizing. After a few minutes of trying to flag her down, we asked the waitress about our missing side dish, which she of course forgot because she didn't write anything down. Then, unprofessionally, asked "do you still want it?" In most places, when the server would make a mistake like that, they'd bring the side out without asking and comp it. Not here and not her. Just a disappointing experience from a weak staff member and bad night in the kitchen. This place was good, now unreliable. I won't go back here.
Toup's South never disappoints - we sat at the dining bar and had a lovely time. The chef's are ever so nice and it's fun to watch them do their stuff! The food was fantastic! We had the lamb tartar, smokey links, and cracklins - all fantastic. I had the fried chicken as a main dish and it was out of this world with a yummy buttery, hot sauce!
As always, the food was fantastic and the people unbelievably nice. The restaurant was packed, yet everyone had time to keep up with us and take care of what we needed.
Nice little surprise for us. We couldn't get into Commanders after our garden district tour. Looked at what was nearby- and we found Toup's. Lovely luncheon menu- with loads of local and farm to table options. Fun drink menu. Reasonably priced . Oyster Salad, Chicken Sandwich, Football practice, and Brussels sprouts with Turnip greens- wonderfully executed. Really sweet service team.
Loved the updated take on regional specialties and the delicious cocktails and our server took great care of us! Highly recommended for lunch if you're going to check out the very fun Southern Food and Beverage Museum next door.
I love it here - just as good as the original Toups that made Isaac Toups famous, but slightly off the beaten path and with some more veggie-centric and seafood-based options than the original Toups Meatery. Last year the pork chop stack ended up being my birthday cake and it was way better than an actual cake.
Table of 8. Soup to nuts and nothing but rave reviews from everyone. Cinnamon Roll bread pudding was excellent!
The bar has quite a story. Be sure to ask about it. The food is creative. And surprisingly we ordered a burger. The burger was outstanding !!!
Great Reveilllon menu and consistently high quality and creative menu options.
Another great meal at Toups South. We went with a group of eight, and everyone's meal was just spot on. People are still talking about the cracklins.
We were seated at 6pm and did not get our entrees until 7:30 pm for a table of 5 people. The bar was just as slow and it wasn't even a full house that evening. Considering Chef Toups was there himself, there was no indication that any of his staff was in a rush. To top it off I ordered a rare steak and it came out extremely well done but since our food came out so very late and we needed to catch a show at the Jazz Market the server couldn't do much to help.
Outstanding service and outstanding food. Unique combinations made the meal adventurous, but in a good way. Have to go back when in New Orleans.
