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.

Tujague's is a bit out of the way for most New Orleanians - it's on the other side of the French Quarter from the business district, so we hadn't been in a while. But we found it a few months ago, and have really been enjoying it. Its specialty is brisket, and the people at the table who had the brisket really enjoyed it. I had fried green tomatoes with shrimp remoulade, and that was excellent. The house salad was also very good. Service has been either good or great, depending on the service team. The restaurant has a long history in New Orleans and is located in an interesting part of town. Downstairs is decorated in the decor of many of the really old restaurants in New Orleans, tile and mirrors, so no noise dampeners. We were seated adjacent to the front window, so people watching was available.

Tujague's never disappoints - I make sure to eat here any time I'm in New Orleans. The famous five-course menu is still alive and well, and it's a wonderful journey through the best classic cuisine NOLA has to offer. The ambiance is classy and timeless, and the wait staff is attentive and courteous. The food and experience are well worth the price.

Hands down still one of my favorite establishments in NOLA. In a city with literally hundreds of good places to eat, this restaurant has remained one of the top old school places to relax and enjoy a leisurely meal. Their drinks are awesome too. One of the best Pimm's cup in town. Beef brisket makes your mouth water. Don't miss this old gem, always a wonderful meal.

Lovely old building. Small things keep this dinner good but not great. Food started off with soft loaf of reheated bread that was convenience store quality. Disappointing in a place of such history. Gumbo was excellent. The entrees were good but temperature a little cold. Service was very good. Solid dinner but not as special as could be with a place of such history.

I went with 2 other guests who hadn't been there in quite a while. I had been there with my wife since the menu had been enlarged . Both of guests got the brisket as their entree while I ordered fish amandine. Everyone was most pleased at the dining experience We also shared the gnocchi with crayfish . An exceptional meal

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.

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.
