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 seafood courtbouillon 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.

Four of us were seated. 2 waiters were buzzing around.
They were ignoring us. Two other tables came in and were promptly waited on. Must of been a bus boy who gave us water and bread. 15 minutes went by. No drink order was taken and no menus were given out. Had to stop one of the waiters and ask for menus. He came back and said Clarence would be our server. 20 minutes had now gone by
And Clarence came and got our drink orders. It was weird that this was the first time we saw Clarence in this room. He finally got our food order after around 30 minutes. After
The food came out we never saw Clarence again. We wanted dessert but passed. The food was actually good. Although the bread was stale. One of the other waiters finished us up and his name was on the check. We had to get the manager to pay the check. Again ignored. We had eating here before that is why we came back. My wife said something to the manager on the way out. Being ignored by the two waiters was really frustrating. Especially when one of their names was on the check. Why was Clarence designated our waiter when he was not in the room and disappeared. Won’t be back.

Nice and quiet, away from the ruckus.... outstanding poached oysters, gumbo a little light on the andouille but nicely seasoned. Best yellow fin tuna, nice and moist. The creme brulee was creamy and not overly sweet. Very nice evening.

This had been a favorite of mine since 1987. We ordered the traditional 5 course meal but it was not as good as I recall. It seems they don't care. The shrimp was room temp and sad. The uninspired gumbo was plated poorly: one bowl had too much meat and another had virtually no meat or rice. How does it get out of the kitchen that way? The brisket was meh. My duck was chewy and absent of taste or seasoning. Several of my guests had tuna which was fine. The banana bread pudding which could have been a highlight was industrial and bland.

The food was good but the cost wasn’t worth it. The decor and ambience was poor. The room was decorated like it’d be a high class, suit/tie place but it was causal and the walls felt like they were closing in due to all the plain white and mirrored walls. There was no background music at all either so sound echoed off the empty walls. Not a place I intend to visit again, plenary of placed in NOLA with good food and better ambiance.

Had a lovely brunch here and watched people walk by. The eggs Benedict was one of the best I've ever had! The atmosphere was nice, and felt very "old New Orleans". You could almost imagine what it was like years ago. The service was also fantastic and very friendly. Would definitely recommend this place for brunch!

This was absolutely the worst experience we have ever had at a restaurant any where in the world. And we have traveled a lot. Got there and got seated, got a menu and wine list, and sat there for thirty minutes with no attention whatsoever. We asked for our waiter several times with no success. Finally just got up and walked out . We come to New Orleans several times a year . Will NEVER go back to Tujague’s again !!

The service was excellent, sadly the food was not. My friend’s scallops were cold on the inside, my broiled oysters had gritty sand in half of them. The best part of the meal was the delicious bread pudding, but aside from that the food was a let down and the ambiance just so so.

Stopped into Tujague's for Sunday Brunch. Insider tip: end of July is the PERFECT time to visit NOLA, no lines to be found anywhere! I had made reservations on Opentable but it was entirely unnecessary as we were almost the only people in the place at 2pm. Our server David was the bomb, he took great care of my wife and I and had great stories about the restaurant, its history as well as an outstanding knowledge of the menu. The food was fantastic and David even gave us a tour of the building after we finished eating. I highly recommend Tujague's!

Quite honestly, I expected better.
After hearing about this iconic destination for so many years, all five of us were disappointed in the selection, the ambience, and the overall value.
Let me say this, I understand that one visit may not tell the real story, but as a traveler, I have only one shot!
Someone needs to update the wall decor. The bottles make the room look old and rundown.
The menu was fairly short with just a few classic NOLA items.
Service was okay but for the prices, should have been more attentive.

Once again...my opinion only. Please don't kill the messenger.

Hi Gary, we apologize that your experience was anything less than 5 stars! We will share this information with our entire team. The liquor bottles hung around the dining room were part of the personal collection of the late Steven Latter. His son, the current owner, wanted to pay tribute to such a beloved man in the industry. Perhaps, we do not do a proper job of conveying the incredible history of the place. Again, we appreciate your honesty and will take all of it into consideration.
