Service was so slow and for the price of the dishes we expected great food, it was mediocre at best and everything was cold. Only good part was the gumbo and soup of the day we ordered.
Amazing place, the ambience was superb, this is actually a best kept secret, didn't even realize the W hotel is attached to this restuarant.. 2 thumbs up definaly....👍🏾👍🏾
We had a very nice lunch. Cajun gumbo was excellent. $.25 martini’s were also delicious.
Vacation with my boo
The food was mediocre at best. The "Shrimp/Taso corn dog" was terrible. The steak was o.k but way over priced for what was served. The server was cordial but missed on several request and my drink order. Over all I wouldn't eat there again nor would I recommend it to anyone.
Burger was tasteless, chicken app rubbery,
Oyster taco changed to shrimp since no oysters. Was ok. Gumbo tasted bad and Bloody Mary was off.
The food was good. Our waitress was not service oriented . She seemed bothered by questions regarding the menu and drink ingredients.
Great Place for a large group. We were a group of five. The food was imaginative. The rustic cajun gumbo was tasty and I enjoyed the Spanish Quarter salad. The duck legs and eggs meal was delicious. I don't recommend the pork belly banh mi. The pork belly was very chewy and it had too much sauce on it. Everyone else loved their choices. The drinks were wonderful and creative. Bella Blue was an entertaining burlesque star and we really enjoyed the live band. She hand wonderful costumes and was fun and light hearted. It was a great brunch and a show.
Unfortunately, the service was slow. We had tickets to Wicked and after an hour, our food had not arrived. By the time the food was sent to our table, we had about 7 minutes to eat before we had to leave for the play. The manager was gracious enough to comp the meal, and the food was very good, but the experience left us with no desire to return.
Went for brunch. Poached eggs were cold and hard. Potatoes were hot, but so over-seasoned they were inedible. Bacon had WAY too much pepper. French toast was burned. Coffee was $3.00/cup, no free refills. Not a good meal or experience.
The beer dispenser on the table prevented me from being able to see the person across from me which made conversation difficult. The restrooms were overflowing with trash, paper everywhere.
Food was amazing. Staff acted like it was an inconvenience for us to be there. Waited ten minutes for water and cocktail order to be taken.
We were seated next to the window, which was nice because we also got to people watch while we enjoyed our meal.
First of all it was Sunday Night Football night in NOLA vs Dallas...so the restaurants were NOT busy...of course the bars were. So maybe they were off their game. But for such a vaunted restaurant their liquor selection was weak, drinks inconsistent, did not even have a bottled sparkling water. The bathrooms were badly in need of attention, and there were like three tables dining, all 2 or 4 tops and 4 people at the bar. The food was pretty good, but no nearly as good as Redfish Grill, Mr. B’s or over a dozen other moderately priced places in the quarter. I might go back to try again, but then with so many solid performers in the area why would I?
Legs and eggs burlesque brunch was awesome! The performer put on a great show and wore gorgeous costumes. The service was outstanding and the food was to die for!! We also thoroughly enjoyed our cocktails. Great experience, delicious food and our out of town guests loved the atmosphere and the wonderful hospitality.
Loved the Burlesque Brunch! Food was amazing! Whitney our server was so friendly and attentive. Made my Birthday special. Will be back!
Had a couple of drinks in the bar beforehand and bar staff was very friendly and helpful with recommendations. Great bar atmosphere!
Once seated, service was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Food was excellent and we will
definitely be back!
GREAT FOOD AND SERVICE. ONE OF OUR FAVORITE PLACES TO EAT WHEN VISITING NEW ORLEANS.
The food was awful. Nothing appealing. Over rated .
Duck.dry, bread pudding pop excellent
We arrived early to our reservation, and they sat us immediately. The server (Nene) greeted us by name and couldn’t have been more welcoming. My husband has a shellfish allergy and this was the first place I had ever seen with shellfish-free gumbo. We enjoyed the 3 course menu and since we came early (before 6) we could enjoy the happy hour drink menu ($4 Prosecco!) This was a stellar dining experience all around. We will be back!
Great food and service will return
The ambiance was trendy and swank, food was well-portioned and tasty,, waitstaff and management were excellent. Our server, Dever, was attentive without being obtrusive. The complimentary shots we had added to the value of our meal and provided a unique opportunity to sample something that we may not have tried otherwise due to the unique flavor profile. We had an amazing experience. We shall return and we shall tell our friends and family to try SoBou in the near future.
I don't know what people are talking about with poor service or stale food. We first discovered this place on a food tour - everything was tasty and the chef presented their out-of-this-world take on beignets. Returned tonight for more drinks and tastes. The oyster tacos and shrimp shortcake were excellent. The bread pudding was great (and large!). The drinks were delicious. The service was polite and helpful. I love the decor and music. Recommended!!!
SoBou was delicious. We had breakfast there 3 times and dinner once. The food was very good and plentiful. The servers were attentive and friendly.
This was a fun new find!
Great decor and atmosphere.
The food was very good.
Service was very good and they were great about answering questions about ingredients on some of the dishes we had.
Service wasn’t great. The burlesque brunch was lovely as the dancer was charismatic and the band was great, though a bit loud. The food was just OK compared to other options in New Orleans.
Great service! The staff was friendly, professional and seemed to really enjoy working there! That makes for a very nice atmosphere! The crispy oyster tacos were excellent, as well as the sweet potato beignets! We went for lunch and it was perfect!
We had 6PM reservations. Nearly mt and quiet so we could chat. Did the fixed price menu $38. Great value. I had duck others drum. Everything was nicely prepared and not over salted. Others drifted in and got noises but it’s NO. Will go back again.
Terrible service - so slow .. we could see our food waiting on the pass and hadn’t to ask for it as it was getting cold . Stay away.
What a cool spot. Easy to get to, great atmosphere, plus phenomenal food and service. Toi was a tremendous server and genuinely made us feel welcomed. Recommended to friends who are visiting this weekend!
The food was the absolute best!!!! The music and entertainment added so much to the experience. We loved it!!!
Nene and Darius made my group of first-timers feel very welcome and they had a blast! Having been to SoBou several times before, I knew they would love it! As always, you all delivered. The band was wonderful and Bella Blue killed it! Can’t wait to come back.
Server was very attentive and explained the menu well.
Went with a group of people for COOLINARY month! We’re locals and food and service was outstanding! The yellowfin tuna cones appetizer was outstanding as well as everything else! Our server was spectacular! we had a great time!
Our Coolinary meal was outstanding! Love love love the tasso and shrimp corn dogs! Server Toi was attentive, helpful and friendly. We will be back often!
Great food and service
Fabulous, I would dine here everyday if I could.
Very attentive service and creative menu
I love SoBou’s elegant decor, and chose to have lunch there because of its lunch menu during New Orleans’ August Coolinary event. My companion and I ordered the seafood and rustic gumbos which were very good. As entrees, we chose the fried oyster tacos and Vietnamese pork belly Po’boy. While the tacos were quite tasty and the pork belly and accompanying pickled vegetables flavorful, the Po’boy was served on stale, inedible bread.
Our server was both distracted and indifferent to our dining experience. Our food and drink orders were mixed up repeatedly. Further, when asked why our martinis were not served in the appropriate stemware, his response was “what do you expect for a .25 cent martini.” If Commanders Palace can serve their .25 cent martini in an actual martini glass, why can’t SoBou do the same?
