    We came for the Monday Night Fried CHicken Special and we were not disappointed! Excellent chicken and the Red Beans and Rice were AWESOME! We will be back and we will bring friends!

    Server was nice but absent, and was barely more than a note taker. Food was terrible and overpriced. The decor at the Roosevelt was beautiful. The restaurant was truly one of the worst experiences I’ve ever had. The chairs were comfy. That’s the only positive feedback I can offer. Wouldn’t eat here again if it was free.

    The breakfast buffet food was varied and good. However the omelette and grits bar didn’t have anyone to take your individual order. So no omelette for our group. $28 for a buffet was pricey. But all food in New Orleans is pricey. Next year we will just view the decorations and go else where for food.

    We were celebrating our anniversary and requested the Réveillon menu. The appetizers were okay, but the kitchen allowed the fondue to develop a skin o top before it was served. The gumbo was the worst I have ever tasted. It was salty, the rue was burned, and it was as thick as mud. My duck entree came out cold and tasted awful. The presentation made for the most unappetizing plate I have ver seen.

    Very festive at The Roosevelt for Christmas. Service was very, very slow but the waitress was working all the tables by herself. The food was very tasty, not a lot of choice. This would be a great stop for drinks with friends!! Overall we enjoyed our experience.

    Fun spot before going to the theater. It was very busy but the wait staff did their best and we were in and out in a little over an hour. My son enjoyed the steak and loved seeing all the decorations.

    What a fantastic dinner we enjoyed! The deep roux Gumbo was excellent, as was the seafood fondue. Server was wonderful and non-intrusive as our dinner party chatted and visited. We did have to request our server bring the check, but no worries. Music was lovely but a bit intense and I will request a table farther from the performance area when I make my next reservation. All in all, delightful!

    Ate here mid day on a Saturday in December There were only 2 other occupied tables. The ambiance was cafeteria style. Lobby noise was overwhelming. Service was terrific! Food was cold. The gumbo was flavorful but cold. The fried chicken sandwich was ice cold and so hard I feared for my soft palate. Ice cold fries. No bar menu because the bartender did not arrive until 3pm? Ordered a bottle of Prosecco that surprisingly cost $80!! We will NEVER return.

    I booked a reservation and was expecting chicken to be a special but not the only option. I wish this was indicated (if it was, I missed it). They said the only other option was a salad. I ordered a salad with dressing on the side and it came COATED in dressing. I had to hold my lettuce above the plate to let it drip. My husband loved his fried chicken meal. The atmosphere was great but it was very loud (we were near a huge party and the piano). At one point, we just stopped talking because we couldn’t hear anything. I left disappointed and hungry but my husband left full and happy.

    We went for pre-Theatre drinks and snacks. Our server was great, the ambiance was great. The pear salad is very tasty unfortunately, the cheese board and charcuterie was a bit disappointing and the place was very loud.

    Beautiful hotel decorations, but our experience at the Fountain Lounge was bad. We had attended a funeral that day, and wanted to relax and celebrate my husband's birthday in a lovely place. Our party of 9 arrived at our scheduled reservation at 8pm. However, most of us didn't get our meals until almost 10pm. When they finally arrived most of the dishes were COLD - like icy. The $60 Rib-eyes were subpar quality, like steaks at Sizzler. We expressed our displeasure to the waiter, who offered to get the Manager. A man named Josh arrived, removed some hamburgers off our bill, but didn't seem to care since he didn't even apologize for the bad service/food! It was so disappointing to be in New Orleans and NOT eat great food! The beautiful lights of the hotel seemed dull after this bad dining experience. Definitely won't be back.

    We went on Monday which was Fried Chicken night. Chicken was good. Crispy and good amount of spiciness but not too much. Very nice lounge setting with good spacing. I wish they served other dishes other than the chicken.

    The wait staff was very attentive, but not overbearing. The food was of high quality and plenty of food, took home leftovers. I wasn't sure that it would be as great as it was but I would definitely go back, not only for the coolinary, but to try other items on the menu.

    So the food was some of the best in the city. And yes I am comparing it to places Commander's Palace, Neyohs, Dooky Chase, etc. The fondue, grouper and half chicken were simply amazing. The service was also amazing. We will be back.

    My husband, sister, and I visited New Orleans to see Hamilton. We had brunch the next morning. It was wonderful. My husband and I both got the buffet; there was excellent food and plenty of it. My sister just got an English muffin. She wanted a banana, and when we asked they found one for us. I also drank a mimosa. I was most impressed with our server. She was very helpful!

    Great place for food and drinks before seeing Hamilton. Only mark down was for the cheese board - a bit boring, needs more is variety - too much hard white cheese.

    I know that they were short staffed so this is not a negative review just some constructive criticism!! 100% for trying very hard to handle customers in the midst of a recession. Such an extravagant restaurant at a extravagant hotel should not be serving cold gumbo in the smallest cup. Salad said there was kale but it was mostly romaine , the chicken was the best thing in the menu , cornbread was also cold and wasn’t interested in the tomatoe rice ?? Not sure what kinda of rice that was. Management tried their best, staff tried their best, so I will return one day, maybe my experience will be better . The old fashioned drink was delish !! So we are grateful for everyone trying but I KNOW the quality of the food can be better for the price
