Creole / Cajun / Southern
Tujague's is the second oldest restaurant in New Orleans. This French Quarter institution has been serving traditional New Orleans cuisine to locals and visitors alike for more than 160 years.

Lore states that brunch originated here, as did the Grasshopper cocktail. Homages to the restaurant's long and colorful history abound within the interior of the building from the classic 19th century architecture to memorabilia on the walls.

Menu items such as the seared gulf fish and the daily gumbo meld French traditions with New Orleans fare and flare. Our famous five course menu is still served nightly; but have no fear, the menu is no longer pre-fixe, so those less ravenous diners can join in too.

If you want a quintessential New Orleans experience filled with history and local fare, Tujague's is your place.

    Dinner was delicious. Portion sizes were just right but we didn’t have a huge appetite. Drinks, appetizers and dinner came fast. We felt a bit rushed out of the door and there were several open tables available. Not that we wanted to sit there all evening bur we were in and out in less than an hour.

    My mom and I had a quick trip to NOLA and it was our first time back since the pandemic and therefore our first time to Tujagues since the new location has opened. Although we of curse Miss the old historical busking of the original location, we were pleasantly surprised and amazed at how well done the renovations on the new location were. It had a beautiful ambiance and felt very much like the “old” tujagues. The food was phenomenal. We have eaten here many times and for many years so we are already fans, but it seemed even better. The shrimp remoulade on the fried green tomato, the shrimp n grits, the bread pudding. Incredible. The staff were all so warm and friendly, so personable. We loved chatting with our waitress Lindsey and there was another man who was so kind but unfortunately we didn’t get his name. It was a beautiful meal.

    Underwhelming experience, which was sad, because we were very excited to try this restaurant. Waitress was unpleasant and teetered on rude. Had to ask for bread which every restaurant we have been to here has brought to the table right away, and again, she seemed annoyed when we asked for it. Salad had far too much dressing. Filet was good, but the sides were underwhelming and simply not worth $42. Kitchen was backed up so the dessert took awhile to come out. Best part of the experience were the mushroom crepes. If I could do it over again, I would have gone somewhere else. Definitely was an expensive bummer of an experience.

    Food was delicious! The pork belly appetizer & filet was a good choice. The house label Cabernet was stellar. The only negative was our server acted like we were an inconvenience. We will go back, hopefully our server next time will have a better disposition.

    First time to Tujague's new location. It was nice and quiet. Good for a romantic dinner. Food was excellent. Service was fast at first, but slowed down. We had our food. We had our appetizers and meal finished in under 40 minutes. But then it took almost 30 minutes get dessert, check and paid.

    The shrimp and grits were delicious and my husband loved his perfectly cooked ribeye. The servers/kitchen were very helpful with knowing which options were gluten free as I have Celiac’s disease. The creme brûlée was the best we had this week and paired nicely with their glamour Grasshopper!

    I was traveling on my own on my way home from a family gathering. I made a reservation for 6:30 on Open Table. I was greeted nicely at the entrance and the waitress brought beverages right away at a small table with a cushioned bench on one side. My whole dinner was excellent, but I especially liked the chicken and sausage gumbo appetizer. The meat was very tender, the rough was thick, and the flavor was delicious without being overwhelming.

    I recommend the boudin balls, crawfish etouffee and the pork chops. The food was really good but the twice baked potatoes were salty. The seating was very snug. The food makes up for the negatives. Make sure you make reservations.

    The service is terrible. We were waiting forever to order even though we were clear about knowing what we all wanted already. It would take forever to get his attention at all. We went for two birthdays and the table next to us actually got it recognized while he was like “wow that’s nice, a birthday”. The idea of restaurant week was better than it tasted. If I’m paying that much for a steak, I expect it to be cooked how I like it, also the Yukon potatoes were a hard pass. I’m from Texas so of course my expectations were high and they just weren’t met! I will say though, no complaints on the dessert and sweet potato mash!

    I totally understand how understaffed restaurants are these days, so I try to cut the service team some slack….& I STILL tip 20%+. That being said when you order crawfish chowder and they bring out shrimp & corn as a substitution without telling you….that’s not acceptable. When the server “checks in” about bring you your 2nd glass of Rosé 3x (between your appetizer and almost finishing your entree) before actually bringing it to you….while you’ve watched the FOH mgr and bartender be (apparently) idle……it’s rather frustrating. When you order a steak medium-rare and it’s basically “black&blue” it’s disheartening. When you walk out $235 lighter for a dinner for 2…..KNOWING that you could have cooked the same meal better at home for 1/5, it’s just plain disappointing. It used to be, that you would at least have a baseline prediction of a restaurant’s quality of food and service based on the price…..that’s obviously not the case anymore. Besides the charming hostess who greeted us when we walked in….NOTHING about our experience was par, let alone something memorable or exceptional. I know that Tujague’s is an “institution” but it’s not one that I will ever eat at again or recommend to anyone I know. Should have gone to Irene’s or Mr.B’s……

    First time to Tujague's since new ownership/management. Brunch was excellent. Many good choices and reasonably priced. Gumbo, turtle soup all spot on. Crawfish crepes delicious. Only negative, which was quickly remedied, was poached eggs on an entree were hard-cooked, but replaced immediately by perfectly poached eggs. Ricky was our server and he was fantastic. Will be back again soon. Also, the building is beautiful.
