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.

This restaurant has such a continental feel, you half expect the wait staff to write your tab on the paper table covers! We really wanted to like this place, but unfortunately the food was not as distinctive as the atmosphere. The brisket was tasty but dry, and the tuna was just okay. The hit of the evening turned out to be the grilled oysters with cheese. Delicious!

Great food! We went for an early weekday dinner, 6pm.
There were only 6 customers at 3 of the approximately 30 tables. Many empty tables. One waitress or waiter for each table. Our waiter, for some reason, was eager for us to quickly finish our meal. He stood in the doorway watching us and if we were not actively eating he walked from the door to our table at the far end of the room to see if we were ready for the next course. While we were eating our soup he came 7 times to see if we were ready for out entrees! I started taking a small bite when he was several steps into the room so that he would turn around and go out without bothering us again. Completely ruined any ambience that the place might have had. We ate a small portion of our entrees and asked that the remainder be boxed along with our desserts and took them back to the hotel room to eat.
I would not recommend this restaurant unless it is a busy time so that the meal could be savored and enjoyed.

Louie, we are so sorry to hear this! We definitely do not ever want a customer to feel rushed. This is unacceptable and we certainly want to address it with our staff. Would you mind sharing more information about your server so that we may address it with him directly?

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 !!

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
