    We felt very looked after at Arnaud’s. Unfortunately we were not very impressed with the food. We ordered the Shrimp Arnaud to start, maybe it was just not to our taste but we did not like the creole remoulade that came on the shrimp. We have had many remoulade’s across the world and this was not our favourite. One of us ordered the fish meunière and it was very disappointing. A small piece of fish and a strange sauce to go with it. None of it worthy of the higher price tag of a top class restaurant. I must say we were treated very well while at Arnaud’s and we did feel very special. They treated us to a lovely dessert for our anniversary celebration. We just weren’t overly impressed with the food unfortunately.

    We are in NOLA for a few days celebrating and eating great food with our son before he is deployed to Japan. Wonderful dinner. The main dining room is not quiet, so not romantic in that sense, but has a really fun vibe. Our waiter Kyle and the whole staff (Malory in particular) were fantastic. Very attentive, but not intrusive. Highly recommend the French 75 and Arnaud Special to drink and the Oysters Arnaud as an appetizer. Son really enjoyed the frog legs - were the best he’s ever had. The portions are on the small side, but that’s ok. Save’s room for dessert. We had bananas foster and cafe brulot. Lots of fire!

    Arnaud’s did not disappoint. The service was great from beginning to end and the food was delicious! I was shocked how amazing the stuffed mushrooms were (grapes and all)! My party all ordered something different so we could have a little taste of multiple menu items and every one was hot, fresh and packed with flavor. I mean, we cut the filet mignon with a butter knife, need I say more?? The two fish options we had were incredible. The only area in which I wish they did better was dessert. My friends got the table side Bananas Foster (which they really enjoyed), but I do not enjoy warm bananas. The other options were just underwhelming. But that is nitpicking because it was an amazing meal!

    Excellent dining experience. The grilled Oysters five ways was surprising, like we were sure what was what (due to our own ignorance)😬. Fish was fantastically fresh. Food was sophisticated and lightly seasoned. My husband and I took a chance on this place as first timers to NO. It was a nice experience and very old school setting right on Bourbon Street. The food was good, service was great.

    Opened with an Old Fashioned cocktail, brilliant. Oysters Broussard Moules Mariniere' and also excellent. Service was outstanding. Trout Meunière and the special gulf fish encrusted in potato continued the trend. There was really no weakness, apart from Arnaud's being at the top of the expense spectrum, and dishes a la carte. Definitely will go back, but cant afford too often.
