Food was excellent. Good service. Only complaint is that it was so loud conversation was difficult.
Upon arrival we were sat at a table that was very shaky so we requested to move. The server ended up keeping us even though her section was the front. The saying is true… out of sight out of mind. The service definitely was lacking compared to what the other guests were receiving. We weren’t given plates, napkins or silverware. Our appetizers were eaten before we received anything, including a drink. The food was overall good. Our favorites were the gumbo and the duck and sweet potato beignets. For such a nice restaurant… too bad the service wasn’t up to par to match the food. We would not return here with all the other choices out there.
The burlesque sets we well done and tasteful. The oysters Rockefeller soup was good but the veggie frittata was amazing. Cocktails were also good.
Service was slow, food was pretty good but not great. Legs and eggs brunch was worth the trip but I’m not sure we would return.

I am sorry to hear we did not met your expectations on service or food quality. We intend to take this feedback to our team and I assure you, should you return, your experience will be different.
Celebrated my birthday during burlesque brunch. The service, food, and performers were wonderful. Steak & eggs were great, along with the drinks.. Toi was our server and she was very kind and attentive, which topped off the experience. I highly recommend SoBou and will be back!
Legs and Eggs on Sundays is a must! The brunch menu was very good, there were 4 of us dining and everyone's food was excellent. Bella Blue and Jeez Loueez were beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed the burlesque show.
Food took over an hour to come :(
Thank you for your patronage and time to leave us a review. We are sorry to hear your experience did not go as planned. It is never our intention for our guests to wait over an hour for food! We take this feedback very seriously and we hope your next visit to SoBou will be different.
Delicious food and great atmosphere. Went for bday dinner.
ChristinaB, we appreciate your visit to SoBou and are delighted to hear you had such a great time for a birthday celebration! We look forward to seeing you again.
Great food and outstanding service.
Love the band - with chance of rain they moved us inside. I’ve been outside and inside, both are wonderful.
I’ve also been for legs snd eggs on Sunday.
Excellent shows every time!
CathyK, thank you for your continuous patronage to SoBou! We value your feedback.
I was under the impression that it would be Cajun/creole food. There were only a couple of these dishes. The service was amazing. If you were going here to party and enjoy music this would be a great venue. For a dinner it was so loud.
Sunshine, we are sorry to hear we did not meet your expectations. We value your feedback and thank you for your patronage to SoBou.
Great food with a fun vibe. Everything we had was amazing and arrived quickly. In a city of seafood, this place stood out for its creative menu and excellent service.

The ambience and service were great so I was expecting amazing food, but I was mostly left underwhelmed.

So cute and hip and fun. Great food, great fun.
Food was not good. My husband's eggs were awful. My fish was not bad but it wasn't special.

Very mediocre food and overpriced for what it is.
AnnaB, thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to hear we did not meet your expectations here at SoBou. We intend to take this feedback and make adjustments accordingly. Thank you for your patronage to SoBou.
Fantastic food and the drinks were superb. Love that they do a specialty “hooch” each day. Highly recommend this place—the ambience was perfect.
Wonderful meal with friends. Service was exceptional.
Brandi our waitress was awesome!
Outstanding from the moment we walked in until we left. The Bar is very cool, bartenders are real pros, drinks were excellent. We had the shrimp corn dogs to start followed by the surf&turf and pork chop. Scraped both plates completely clean. Absolute perfection in preparation, presentation and taste combinations. And the fresh creme brûlée to finish was the perfect topper. Five stars isn’t enough. Can’t wait to come back!
Awesome experience! We weren’t sure what to expect, but we ended up having the best server! She was awesome and made sure we had a great time. Can’t wait to get back!
Great friendly service and food was outstanding
Food was decent, and atmosphere excellent. Service was terrible! Took an hour and a half to get our food and waitress only came to the table once. In reading reviews on Yelp, this looks to be commons service here. Save yourself the trip and explore the many other restaurants in the area.
Corine, thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback and your patronage to SoBou. I apologize we did not meet your expectations on service. We intend to take this feedback and share it with our team! Please trust, your next visit to SoBou will be different.
Had to try SoBou this time visiting and we were not disappointed. I think I’d do lunch if dining outdoors again. We dodged some rain at least. Lovely courtyard area that we would prefer to enjoy a bit more. We started with the duck beignets which were yummy! I had the rustic gumbo and strawberry spinach salad. Perfect. My husband had the Cuban and he gave me a bite. All were great. Next time I think the duck is a must to try. Wonderful service.
Yolie, thank you for taking the time to leave us such a great review! We couldn't agree more; our courtyard is a true hidden gem. We can't wait for you next visit to SoBou.
First time at SoBou. We visit New Orleans about 5 times a year. The staff were exceptional. Very good service. The food was great. I had the pork chops. Superb taste and cooked perfectly. Wine selection good. Ambiance was nice and not noisy. Only downside was the room was a bit cold due to a sudden drop in outside temperature. A great experience.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us such great feedback on your visit to Sobou! I am delighted to hear you enjoyed the pork chop, it's certainly a crowd favorite:) We hope you'll visit again during your next trip to NOLA.
Live music on Thursday in the outdoor courtyard is excellent! The food and service topped it all off! The Brussels are a must!
RachelD, thank you such great feedback and for visiting us on Thursday! We couldn't agree more, Dr. Sick and the Late Greats are a great addition to our courtyard. We hope you'll join us again.
We went for Legs n' Eggs, the Sunday Burlesque brunch and it was fantastic! The food was lovely and Bella Blue did a fabulous performance.
We ate at the Legs and Eggs Sunday brunch. The food was delicious and the entertainer Bella Blue was wonderful. If you are looking for an unique New Orleans experience, I highly recommend Soubou.
Had brunch menu (not on website) though limited, very good. Tacos with fried oysters, pulled pork, egg excellent. Great drinks.
(and a surprise - apparently on weekends they have a burlesque show at lunchtime and it was fun and terrific!)
We came here on a whim while visiting New Orleans and it’s the best meal either of us have ever had. We cannot stop raving about the INCREDIBLE food and FLAWLESS staff. Our server was Dever and she is the absolute sweetest! They were crazy busy and the hostess did not hesitate to come over and chat to us and inform us about anything we needed to know! As busy as they were it was never hectic and the food came out in great time. The executive chef came out to chat with us and he invited us to a crawfish boil brunch they were having the next day and we couldn’t say yes fast enough. Hunter is a great bartender and was super attentive as well. Thank you to all the staff. Just incredible overall, I cannot recommend highly enough!!
Thank your leaving such a great review! We can't wait to share your comments with our team and to host you all again here at SoBou.
The drinks are wonderful. Highly recommend Tourist Visa. It is spicy and delicious. But, food takes too long.
Salbertons, thank you for your patronage to SoBou and for taking the time to leave us feedback. I am delighted to hear you enjoyed one of our newest cocktails, the Tourist Visa! Our bar chefs worked extremely hard on creating crafted cocktails to delight our guests. I am sorry to hear we didn't meet your expectations on the timeliness of food coming to your table. We intend to take this feedback and make things right for your next visit to SoBou!
Highly recommend the Sunday Burlesque Brunch! Food and atmosphere is amazing
The food was incredible. Our server was on top of everything and even though it was extremely busy she took great care of us.
Outstanding staff and service! Over the top making us feel welcome! I was desperately searching for a table with my 92 year old mother in tow walking thru the Quarter at 9:20 in the evening. No one had a table and everyone was closing. I found this reservation on Open Table by luck. We arrived at the restaurant within a few minutes. The hostess had not seen the reservation but a manager was standing by. I overheard them saying it should not have gone through as they were closed. I was promptly asked if I preferred indoor or out. I was assured I would love the courtyard and taken to a perfect courtyard with a great table. They treated us like we were special guests who had made reservations well in advance. If I had not overheard their conversation, I would have never known they were closed. They accommodated our every need. And then came the food...OMG, it was delightful! Our server was a sweetheart and never made us feel rushed for a moment. We savored every bite. I have a list of our favorites in NOLA and SoBou will always be a destination for us. I promise to make reservations in advance from now on:-)
Love2eat, thank you for taking the time to leave such great feedback! We have shared this with our team and we are are all lookin forward to host you all again here at SoBou.
Celebrated my brother’s 40th birthday here during the burlesque brunch featuring Bella Blue on Easter Sunday. Staff was super attentive. Food and drinks were tasty. Bella was fun, flirty, and generous with her time while dancing at our table and talking to us like old friends. We felt very welcome at this establishment. Environment felt clean and airy in light of COVID concerns still being a focus. Highly recommend.
Thank you for your feedback! We are delighted to hear your brother's 40th birthday was a success. Bella Blue is an amazing addition to our Sunday brunch. We hope to see you all again!
What a delightful meal. Everything was wonderful ... food, service, cocktails...! Will definitely be back next time we are in NOLA. Thank you for everything
Thank you for your feedback and patronage to SoBou! We are thrilled to hear you'll be back next time. Cheers!
Great atmosphere, great food, fantastic service. Really enjoyed our meal, the delicious cocktails, and the location. Strongly recommend the strip steak and potatoes. Very tender and flavorful.
Thank you for your feedback! We are so happy to hear about your experience and we hope that you'll return.
