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.

Please note that we do not have an elevator due to the age of the building. You may be seated on the second floor depending on availability.

First time I visited Tujagues was 24 years ago. I
Just went back February 2020 and was elated that the food was still outstanding! Even something as simple as a sweet potato is elevated in its flavor- Hopefully I won’t wait another 20+ years !!

Pamela, we are so sorry that you got sick! We haven't heard anything else from other customers so we are not exactly sure what might've been the issue. Which items did you order? That might help us narrow down any sort of problem with a dish. We are very sorry that this was your experience!

We were there on a Monday evening about 7:30 and the only people there was a party of 6-8. After a while a few more couples showed up. The service was fine, the waitress gave us plenty of time to look over the menu. The wine list was simple but varied. Unfortunately, I ordered their “famous” boiled brisket. All the flavor had been boiled out of it and was also very dry. Until and unless I try them again I cannot recommend you visit.

Tonight we planned a lovely enjoyable dinner with friends, but were unfortunately disappointed. The food was OK a best and my the two steak dishes came out cold and undercooked. Directly beside us was group of convention attendees and they were extremely loud. It was a huge damper on our first experience here. As a small location there was no escaping the groups tenacious conversations and speeches. My recommendations is for the restaurant to install some noise absorbing panels. Overall for the prices we will absolutely choose another spot that will be more accommodating to our quaint expectations.

Service was bad. We were seated and never saw anyone for about 10 min. A table of 4 came in after us and already had drinks and appetizers and we were just sitting there. I had to ask a waiter if they were our waiter to get a drink. Then we rarely saw anyone again after that except for this slow moving gal every once in awhile. After we were done eating, and she knew we were done we had to wait around another 30 to see her again and ask for our check. Everyone else was getting nice service and history lessons on the restaurant- which we wanted and why we booked here. The food was great but not sure if I will go again

We went for New Years Eve special dinner and were really underwhelmed. Service was perfunctory, limited menu, food inconsistent. The appetizers and bisque were excellent, but the main courses and deserts largely went uneaten.

What amazes me is that the set menu was so limited. Two desert choices? Really.

After so many great meals in New Orleans at more casual places, we expected much better.

We apologize that you did not have an enjoyable experience with us on New Year's Eve. We always do a limited menu on New Year's Eve due to the volume of guests that we serve on that night. We are very sorry that you were unaware of the limited menu prior to making a reservation as we do our best to notify all guests.

The manager was extremely accommodating. Took our large party in for lunch and sat us at tables within close proximity. However, when our table of 5 went to pay for our checks and wrote down what we each had/which cards to specifically charge for which items, he said to me, “Well this doesn’t help at all.” Very unprofessional.

I have been told by many that this place is a staple in NOLA & should not be missed. The grilled oysters though fresh fell a little flat with only a cheese topping as opposed to garlic and herbs often noted in the mix at other establishments. The gulf fish amandine was well cooked and moist, and the accompanying sauce was flavorful. The size of the entree is probably the correct amount an individual should eat but appears to be on the smaller size. The duck and goat cheese crepe was tasty and unique. Our server was subpar in not bringing the items as ordered or the correct number of items. This may have been due to the noise level, but being in customer service myself, if I’m not certain on what I’ve heard, I would repeat back what I thought that I had heard. I do not think that it’s professional to push an item on the customer that was not requested though. An appropriate response would be to take the item back if an error had been made the server. This first time experience here was tainted by the poor service. It’s not okay to bring an ordered drink after the whole meal has already finished.
