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.

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.

What a pleasant culinary experience. We struggled over where to dine for our one night in New Orleans and decided on Tujagues. It was fantastic! We splurged and got the five course dinner and enjoyed every course from the shrimp remoulade to the gumbo, which was wonderful; the brisket was tender and delicious and both my fish and my husband’s tuna was very good, too. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. The wine was perfect, too. We had a lovely dinner and I will return next time I’m in the crescent city.

We were very disappointed in our meal selection (except for gumbo) and rarely, if ever, have expressed dissatisfaction to any restaurant wait staff. Perhaps other menu choices would have been better.

Our waiter graciously sought to make amends together with the manager - for which we were most appreciative.

Even though our first dining experience was less than hoped for, we will be back to try it again. Tujague’s has a great reputation; we would love to lend support to that honor.

We had an wonderful dining experience at Tujague's - the bar vs. the dining room are like night and day (and both are great!). We had a quiet dinner in this historic restaurant (vs. the lively bar next-door). It's in a fantastic location in the Quarter, and the chef surprised us with 4 grasshoppers to top off our already incredible meal! Try the bread pudding souffle! I can't wait to go back, and I can't recommend the restaurant enough!

The waiter was very nice and brought us some bubbly, since it was our anniversary, but the food was very disappointing and lackluster. The char-grilled oysters were dry and flavorless, the fried green tomatoes were tough and had very little sauce, and the seared tuna was also kind of tough. The dishes were on the menu, the service was fine, but the cooks were phoning it in. I would go back to all the other places we ate in New Orleans, but not here.

Not my favorite experience. The brisket is usually so tender and flavorful. On this visit we went later in the evening. I received three separate pieces of brisket, only one was edible. They others were too tough to consume. Thankfully the gumbo n bread was great along with the service. Will go earlier next time!
