Another amazing dinner. We will be back!
If you are interested in very unique dishes with local farm to table flair, you’re in for a real treat! Maurice was our server, and did a great job helping us to understand the unique preparations of the menu. The crab dish is awesome, as is the backstrap, quail. The “gumbo” should probably be named something else, since it is so far from a Southern gumbo, but it is delicious nonetheless!
What an absolute gem for adventurous dining! Fabulous farm to table selections that change each week. Everyone is very friendly, and the owner/chefs even invited us to tour the kitchen and chatted with us. The handcrafted cocktails are delicious and the chocolate bread pudding is absolutely elegant. We will return anytime we are visiting New Orleans.
Almost 30 minute delay in seating (with reservations) and empty tables visible. As far as the menu is concerned, I’m not a fan of the small plate style menu which does not pair well with the Louisiana fish and game. Full plate entrees would be more appropriate and a much better value.
This was by far the best meal we had in NOLA. The food was local and creative, and the staff attentive and professional. Maurice was the best! Wish we would have found this place on our first night so we could have dined there more than once.
Food is great and very adventurous and unique. Service is good. Ambiance is very cool. Easy to make a reservation and not too crowded.
We loved this restaurant! Food was creative and delicious. Would go back! The Anderson's
One of the best meals I’ve ever had. Creative delicious dishes. Attentive well trained staff who are serious about the quality of food and drinks and service. But friendly and engaging as well. Highly recommended.
Great staff and food was very good
Already made reservations to come back!
This was the best meal we had in New Orleans, and that's a high bar to reach. The slate blackened fish is the best I've ever had, it just melts in your mouth. The hen of the woods dish was incredible as a vegetarian/vegan option, delicious! The service was wonderful, but the food was even better. I felt I was eating the fancy dishes prepared on TV, loved it!
Our 1st visit to Sac-a-Lait exceeded our expectations. We throughly enjoyed the fresh oysters and the Hunt portion of the menu. The Venison Backstrap was amazing as was the Rabbit. This is must destination when visiting the Crescent City.
The menu is quite unique, so this is definitely a place for people who want to try something new. The service was great, and the dining room tables were well spaced (as opposed to many other restaurants that pack the tables close together). However, the food was overly spiced. We got a 4 different items between the two of us. All were good, but the spice in all 4 dishes wore on me. For example, the Gumbo Z'Herbs was enjoyable at first, but so heavily spiced that I struggled to finish it. The drinks were very good.
Brilliant, creative locally-influenced and sourced food. We tried nearly everything on the menu, and all of it was fantastic and original, especially the frogs' legs "poppers", the venison backstrap, the crawfish and all of the oysters (I am not usually a fan, but the char-grilled ones we incredibly flavourful.
Worth getting out of the French Quarter for this absolute gem!
Great farm-to-table (and hunt-to and fish-to) spot. Wonderful savory foods. Fresh local oysters. Great Cajun flavors. Service was conscientious and helpful with explanations and recommendations.
Be sure to read the menu before you go. The choices are eclectic... their specialty the night we were there was fried veal brains. There is not much on the menu that one would consider typical, that is why this is a great place for foodies. Great care was put into the plates, but in the end it wasn't for us. The service was very friendly, but the food we ordered was very spicy and we found ourselves out of drinks and water for a long time. It was hard to find a server to refill our water. We had a lovely evening, but the menu was too extreme for us - and we are pretty flexible eaters. In the end I wished I'd eaten somewhere else.
Great food, the hot quail was awesome
Amazing. Every dish was so surprising and unique. The frog legs blew my mind. Cant wait to go back!
Everything was fantastic!
Hubby and I celebrated our 20th anniversary in NOLA and we chose to have our special date-night here. Everything we tried and tasted was delectable! We started with the deviled crab, ordered backstrap,(Venison), Crawfish tourtiere, and shared German chocolate bread pudding. Our server introduced the ingredients to the dishes so well, that we were excited to try them. It was our first time tasting Venison and it was delicious. Their vision and execution of farm to table is something that we enjoyed an will always remember. We will for sure return when we visit NOLA again.
Great food and atmosphere! Will be back for more!
Wonderful in every way- we very much enjoyed our dinner and we will recommend Sac-a-Lait to everyone we know. Chefs were nice and spoke to our children, which they greatly appreciated. It was the highlight of our weekend. Food was delicious and creative.
Very knowledgeable server, food was unique, but very tasty. Will be back!
Beautiful food in a large, high-ceilinged, smartly decorated space, with plenty of room between tables. A lot of hard surfaces, so it's a little noisy, but not nearly as noisy as many of downtown restaurants.
We had Hen of the Woods (the only vegetarian option on the menu, but my! what an option); charbroiled oysters; deviled crab; and the (welcomely subtle) blackened redfish. We finished with the Indian spoon bread - deliciously unsweet, paired with sweet meringue sauce. Every dish was special. Service was knowledgeable and attentive. Drinks excellent. Would dine here again in a flash.
The food is exceptional. One of the greatest culinary experiences I’ve had. Unfortunately the air conditioning was on way too high and we were seated near a vent. When I explained how cold I was, the hostess refused to seat us at another table, despite the fact that there were 7 others open. She said each of the people who reserved those tables requested the specific table (highly unlikely).
For the money, the front of the house should be on point. I won’t come back even though the food was amazing.
Fantastic food, gorgeous presentation, great service.
We arrived late on sat at the bar. We are from Charleston, South Carolina and we are accustomed to excellent food. The tapas at Sac a Lait are mouth watering delicious!!!!! Our server was wonderful and accommodating, suggesting the venison,best thing on the menu! Overall incredible experience.
Absolutely delicious meal !
One of the best we have tried. Everything top to bottom was prepared well and service was great. Will definitely be back next year.
It was my 3rd time eating there and the food, service and ambiance was fantastic. Their food is incredible blends and mixtures of flavors and a host of different creole blends of fish, foil and indigenous meats and garden varieties.
My only dislike was the menu change from appetizers/entrees to categories of food without knowing the portions almost implying everything is an entree.
When you go there, you want to taste all the different offerings, the new menu inhibits that experience.
Great service. Excellent food
We went for our anniversary and had an amazing time. The atmosphere was fantastic and really gave off a unique modern New Orleans feel. The service staff was impeccable and quite amicable. Everyone congratulatedus on the occasion, even the Chef came out to the table to talk which was a nice touch. The food was hands down some of the best and most authentic I’ve had in the city in the 24 Years I’ve lived in Louisiana. Every dish was unique, interesting, and full of bold flavor. You could tell that even their plates were custom made to fit each dish. It was an outstanding dining experience and I don’t think it could have improved in anyway. I would hands down recommend everyone give Sac-a-lait a try, but I warn you, you may never want to eat anywhere else again after such an impeccable experience. I can’t wait to go back!
Fantastic meal of creative dishes....when I dine out I want to try things I wouldn’t normally make at home. Sac a Lait delivered on every aspect from service to taste! Our out of town guests were blown away & we’ll definitely be back soon.
Had a table reserved; they couldn't seat us... But the service from the bar was outstanding!
Adventurous food done to perfection! We rarely repeat restaurants when we visit New Orleans but this was our second time at Sac-a-Lait. We had the octopus, duck hearts, tuna and venison sweetbread tartare and last but not least, veal brains. We also enjoyed their well-crafted cocktails. We can’t wait to go back for our next adventure!
The most fantastic meal we had in New Orleans by far. The food and drinks were out of this world. Would highly recommend !
Clearly a lot of detail and effort went into every aspect of the restaurant and experience. The decor was youthful and elegant, the menu was ingeniously developed, and the food was creative and of the finest quality. My favorite dish was the duck hearts; I was admittedly intimidated by them but knew I loved duck and had to be able to say I had tried them, and they ended up being delicious!
The most amazing meal we had on our weekend trip to NOLA. We savored every bite. Great cocktails too. Everything was really unique. Dinner at Sac-au-Lait was the highlight of our trip!
The menu is limited.
Met up with friends for a double date. Really great service, very helpful and detailed. Food was FANTASTIC. We had so much fun trying new foods and flavors. Definitely more of a pricey meal because we wanted to try it all, but worth the price! Cocktails were equally as tasty and creative!
Fantastic! Creative menu of smallish dishes. They recommend 2 per person. My wife and I shared 3 dishes. Every dish exceeded our expectations. Our server was personable, knowledgeable and helpful. The menu is Cajun from the standpoint of using what you have. As a result you need to be on the adventuresome side of eating. You are rewarded well here. Excellent.
