We came to hear a singer that was on the calendar on their website and in the restaurant. It turned out no one from the service even knew she was supposed to come. Later on we found out she had a car accident. There was just her background band playing some music and no one even informed the guests. The food was cold, the waitress was spilling wine, they charged way too much for a simple espresso which was just a shot of filtered coffee. The place is cozy and comfortable but super cold. Maybe I had expected too much after reading all the good reviews but I definitely wouldn't invite my friends on a dinner there ever again.

I was excited to go. The ambiance was really nice but the food was mediocre at best for the price I paid. The service was ok. Overall not a great experience

Unfortunately the service was not very good, food was okay. Definitely the worst meal we had in the French Quarter. Waitress was not friendly at all, did her job and brought our food and drinks, but definitely nothing special. We loved our trip to NOLA but this was definitely the low point unfortunately.

I've celebrated two anniversaries here, and I have nothing but good things to say about this restaurant. The food is delicious, drinks are top notch, and service is very professional. I would recommend for a special occasion or a night out with the guys.

I've been to Bombay Club many times over the years and was extremely disappointed with my experience this time. I want to note that our server was fine, no complaints with her.

It was my birthday dinner and when I made the reservation on Open Table, I noted that it was a special occasion. In retrospect, I should have also requested a booth but forgot to do so so shame on me. When we got there, the restaurant was half-empty and they sat us at a table right next to the check out station for the servers. There were people constantly walking by and it felt anything but romantic. I asked a server if there was a booth available and he told me that they were all reserved. I should have asked to move to a different table then but decided it wasn't worth the fuss.

Dinner felt pre-prepared, like this was NOT made to order. Our appetizer and main course were brought out and completed before we finished our first cocktail. After our second cocktail, we paid the bill and were were done in 35 minutes. I couldn't believe how rushed it felt.

I went to the bathroom to wash up and note that there were still plenty of open tables for us to have been moved to and that 4 out of the 5 booth were available! At that point I was more than frustrated so pulled aside the manager and told him all that happened. He insisted that those booths just freed up (convenient) and apologized for our experience. I'm not sure if there was a change in management but it's sad to say that I won't be going back. With such excellent restaurant options in New Orleans, I won't be returning to another bad dinner and pay $150 for it.

We went to the Bombay Club to celebrate our 35th anniversary. This was on the advice of our son who had been there two weeks previously for a bachelor party weekend. It was very nice! Good food, great service, lovely jazz group. We would definitely recommend this restaurant!

Initially our twosome were seated between 2 large tables of toung men who were out to party. The waitress was able to accommodate our request to change tables and after that it was all uphill. The crab beignets were delicious as was the mahi mahi which was the fish of the day. I did find the sauce accompanying the fish to be quite salty but the fish itself was lovely.

Great place to meet friends and hang out. Service was great until the bar got busy. Food was delicious and fish cooked perfectly. Only reason I gave one less star is because they charge for their bread 'service '... thought that was a bit tacky. Will go back!

After many trips to New Orleans, we found a hidden gem!! The Bombay Club is the Bomb! We fell in love with this place and ended up going 3 times!!! The menus is small, which I loved. The twice friend Chicken was succulent and sooo flavorful, the short ribs braised in ginger beer, were delicious. The crab and chorizo Beignets yum, the scotch egg. I could go on and on. Now, the headliner is Alex and his amazing cocktails!!! Every drink is made with Percision and expertise. On our last night we meet Chris, the manager and truly enjoyed our conversation-with him. They have live music, a beautiful courtyard. I can’t say enough great things about this place. We can’t wait to go back!!

I enjoyed dining experience. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his cocktail and the Boudin Scotch Egg (I did, too). We were seated close to the bar, so the noise level was high, but we were also close to the musicians and the music was fantastic.

We absolutely loved it! So much so that we decided to come back for dinner the next day. The food was the best we had in NOLA. Follow the waiter recommandations ... Bombay club martini a must... parpadelle to die for and Brussels sprout starter incredible (yes!) The music was on the other side of the room and is gentle so this place is compatible with a nice conversation.

Easter Sunday crowd was colorful and fun! We enjoyed our first visit here and the $15 valet parking across the street. Good Food on their more limited Easter Brunch menu but disappointed to miss the boudin scotch egg we saw online. That just means a return trip!

The hostess was very accommodating as we had a special occasion and a “surprise” and she helped it all go as planned. The cocktails were excellent - I highly recommend their “original” martini. Food was excellent as well, and the live music contributed to the ambiance.

This place was amazing!!! We were treated so well! The atmosphere perfect, food great, service spectacular, the LIVE jazz band were lovely!!! The only thing I would suggest or would have done differently... if your reason is for the jazz music ... sit closer to the band. I strained to hear them over other customers chatter by the bar. But overall perfect! We will be back. Shout out to Gabby!!

Poor bar service (drinks not delivered, 30 mins plus when reordered etc) ruined what would otherwise have been a great experience. Note we’ve been going to the Bombay Club for over 20 years 3-4 times a year when we visit. Sincerely hope the bar service improves on our next visit or it may be our last.
