Really enjoyed the old New Orleans ambiance of this place. The interesting and educational cocktail menu was great for trying some new drinks. The wait-staff was very knowledgable and friendly. Last, but not least, the food was really good.

Food was average and a limited menu. They advertised live jazz and they had an upright piano against the wall that could not be heard. It was sad. Drink was only half full three sips and it was done.

I booked for drinks and desserts with my date for my birthday the experience was great our waiter seemed like he was having a tough time to be fair it was very busy and during Mardi Gras season but the General Manager Chris Horner helped out to keep things running smoothly he checked on us twice even introduced himself and gave me his business card he went above and beyond I will definitely be a repeat customer it was wonderful

Very nice attentive dinner that was great for a date night. We started with cocktails and moved to the scotch egg appetizer which was very good. From there I had the steak which was ok but the seafood my wife had was very good. The rice was a little spicy so I would suggest you mentioned less spice if you don’t like it a little hot. We ended with the king cake and espresso which was a nice way to end the night.

Restaurants decor is reflective of British charm. The food: seared fish with chorizo dirty rice and broccoli rabe was well seasoned; the cocktail called the front porch paired perfectly with the dish; the dessert brownie was dry which I sent back. The music represented the theme of the restaurant. The service: the waiter was very attentive to details; table was kept clean; stemware and plates that was not needed was removed to accommodate next course. Overall, a very pleasant dining experience.

There is no doubt that probably this is the most wonderful place in the entire state of Louisiana. You will enjoy a dinner with a smooth sound of jazz. Don't hesitate to select this superb restaurant in your list.

The Bombay Club is an intimate venue with background music by a life band. There was some mix-up when we arrived and service did not come right away. But once that was straightened out, things went smoothly. The menu is somewhat limited, but we were happy with our choices. The duck and andouille gumbo, served with a traditional scoop of potato salad was delicious. The three crabmeat balls were a pretty good size and creamy, not dry at all. When we mentioned to our waiter, Nick, that it was my wife's birthday, he offered her a complimentary glass of champagne. Lovely evening, great ambiance, good value! And, it's in the French Quarter!!

I got there early. Right at 5:30 for a quick bite. The chefs cheeseburger is fantastic. Our server David did an excellent job. Since it was early, the place was about 25% full so it was delightful for quiet conversation. I’ll be back!

The meals my wife and I enjoyed at Bombay were the most flavorful and satisfying we had in the city over two visits spanning 9 days. The staff was also very responsive to our needs. I would not hesitate to return to Bombay again on my next visit.

Gavin was the best server that we had while in New Orleans! He was both friendly and attentive. When we decided to stick around for the show (well after we finished eating) he continued to check on us but didn’t rush us. Went for dinner on a Saturday and sat in a cozy room off of the bar/main room. All four people in our party enjoyed their meals very much. Food quality was a step above other more expensive restaurants that we went to in New Orleans.

The Bombay Club never disappoints. Happy hour is great, but this time we had dinner before a show. You can’t beat the decor for adding fun to your evening, and the food, drinks and service are consummately delightful every single time we visit. One of our favorite dishes is the chorizo dirty rice. It’s outstanding & I love the Meet Your Maker from the cocktail list.

The staff couldn’t tell us what the fresh fish was. We ordered. It smelled old and incredibly fishy. They then said it was lemon fish.
The atmosphere was disappointing, the staff was I knowledgeable and inexperienced. The manager wasn’t able to offer any helpful advise for such a horrible experience.

Went there while visiting NO. Heard there was good live music which there was. We were very rushed by the server. He keep pushing us to order as soon as we were seated. After we finally ordered drinks he immediately began pushing us to order dinner. We told him we were here for the music that had not even started. We ordered figuring that by the time the food came we would be ready to eat. The food came out faster than McDonalds. Even the waiter apologized for the food arriving so fast. My dinner was very good but my wife’s shrimp and grits was at best average, not what to expect in New Orleans. The dining experience was poor since we felt rushed the entire time. We were not sitting around occupying a table. There were empty tables and we did not linger. We were just being rushed the entire meal. The is better food and much better service at other places in the city.

From the moment we walked in I was in love with this hidden gem. It’s a must do now every time I come to New Orleans. Gavin the GM made it over the top letting us take a souvenir. All we had to do was ask. Our server was precious and personally made our dessert which was outstanding. Good luck to her moving into the kitchen!!!

Went here for our anniversary/nye. We were seated half an hour late from our reservation. It was understandable considering it was nye, however when we were seated we were told we had to hurry because the kitchen was closing in a couple of minutes. They were out of several menu items including an entree from the fixed menu. There was a hair in dessert. They apologized and comped one meal. We won’t be back.

We came for New Year’s Eve dinner. The first table we sat at so dark we couldn’t see the menu. We asked to be seated at a table with more light. First there were a few things on the menu that were not available. We ordered the holiday menu & were told that both deserts from the special menu were not available. We ordered the substituted deserts which tasted & looked like store bought brownie & cheesecake-nothing special. Our dinners came out twice while we were eating our appetizers. Told it would be put under a warmer??? Also we asked for our side dishes to be switched. I wanted my husband’s sides & he wanted mine. Kitchen staff was unwilling to do this simple request. We had to switch our own food table side. Manager greeted us & asked about our experience. He was friendly but not very reassuring that he would rectify the situation in the future. He kept saying, “Oh that shouldn’t have happened”. I think this place might be best suited as a bar with drinks, cigars & maybe bar food snacks. It is not really up to par for dinner service.

Great NYE + Anniversary celebration! Very cool interior with a romantic and classic vibe. Loved the booths! Food was delicious and both food and drinks were at a reasonable cost. Service was fast, attentive and top notch. They gave great recommendations. Very accommodating once they realized how far in advance we made the reservations and that it was our wedding anniversary.

We love it here and have been for both NYE and Thanksgiving meals before. This time however was very unconvincing! 1 course out of a 3 course meal not available ( both options); out of a very limited menu the only proper meat option (short ribs) were not available; famous for their scotch egg ... not available. Our reservation was for 6pm! The waiter was frustrated as guests blew of steam and bit his head of.
