Where to start? Wanted to go at 7 and was told no open tables until 7:45. Fine, starving but I’ll wait. Arrived on time to an almost EMPTY restaurant. Our waiter greeted us with a heavy Indian accent, barely understandable. Ordered some cocktails which took 15-20 minutes to get and mine arrived in a highball glass 1/8 filled. It was an $11 dollar 1/2 a shot. The waiter was awkward and made no recommendations except to say he’ll take it back. I was perplexed. We ordered and the waiter gave my gf a hard time when she was trying to substitute bread ($5) for the fried green tomatoes ($14) which she couldn’t have due to a deadly seafood allergy when he admitted the used the same fry oil for everything. She oh so politely pointed out the price difference actually benefitted the restaurant. Ready to ask for the manager he finally acquiesced. Again, we were left puzzled. Food come and my gf’s cauliflower steak was bland and undercooked atop bland bucatini. No parm or pepper was offered. She did not enjoy it. My crawfish pot pie was good but too big as I was informed they did not have the smaller appetizer size…again, huh? We left under-whelmed and actually spoke to the manager on the way out. It was apparent he could care less even asking if we were locals. Oh, so since we’re often here-out of town era- our opinion meant little. Wow. Just wow. Won’t be back…ever.

Where do I begin!!! Couldn’t do simple Wedge ( previously) on the menu. How hard would that be?
Server lied to my wife when they said her Scallop entree should be cold but Manager said that wasn’t correct.
Other food so so!!
Not a go back to place!!!

The food upset my stomach. Was not made as advertised by management. As a returning combat veteran looking forward to authentic New Orleans cuisine, was underwhelming experience. I sent them a message for a refund on the fact that the food made my stomach sick. Had to call it a night early.

The standout here was the service. We had several check-ins from every level of staff to make sure our experience was impeccable. A couple of dishes could have used some adjustments but overall it was a brilliant experience.

Very pleased with everything from start to finish! The staff was awesome and the food did not disappoint. Brie burger, cauliflower steak, mahi-mahi dish, not to mention the fried green tomatoes, all delicious! We will come back next time we visit New Orleans.

I just think I have been here several times and the food was just off this time . Maybe the regular chef was off but the meat on 3 of 4 dishes was very very tough.

My boyfriend and I were in town for the weekend and I found this place via an article about the best nola brunches. I then came to Yelp and the reviews were outstanding and y’all did not disappoint. Everything was incredible from the food to the service. We both got bottomless mimosas - they are $15 here!! Our server was Brian and he never let our mimosa glasses get empty. I do bottomless brunches fairly often and servers rarely stay on top of it like that. We also asked for ours to have less orange juice and he gladly made us a new carafe which was perfect. For food I ordered the Coolinary option - everything was delicious!! My bf got the scallops and enjoyed them as well.

The only complaint I have is that the music was sooo good like early 2000s r&b and hip hop, but you could barely hear it. I’m sure they do that to avoid it turning into a day party lol but I do wish it was a bit louder because it was all the good songs.

We stayed at the Ace hotel and it was only about a 3 minute walk from there so the location was perfect. Highly recommend!!

We celebrated our daughter’s birthday at Trenasse during a family trip to New Orleans. The food and service was impeccable. Our server “K” was attentive and courteous. Everything from the drinks, the appetizers, and the entrées were absolutely delicious. Make sure you order the bread. It is delicious and comes with a red bean butter. That is the best butter I’ve ever tasted! For entrees we ordered the shrimp and grits, stinky stew, NY Strip, a hamburger and the cauliflower steak. All were very good. Dining at Trenasse was a great experience and we look forward to returning soon.

The food was very good. My husband had the crawfish pie and I had the shrimp and grits. Unfortunately our server disappeared after taking our order and we went nearly the entire meal without drink refills.
The inside of the restaurant is lovely. I don’t recommend the outdoor option we selected. The patio is on an alley across from a parking deck and there were vagrants and dog walkers next to where we were eating our meal.

The food was fabulous. We had the oyster log of 36 oysters and were not disappointed along with a few appetizers.
I had requested a window table. We were put at a table in a dark side area off main dining room. We waited 10 minutes for someone to take care of us. Our waiter seemed to be overworked.
