My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and decided to go to dinner at the Bombay Club. This was our 4th time going to the Bombay Club for our anniversary. We request the table near the bar with the curtains to have some privacy. This was on a Friday night and the bar was packed with people. We were promptly seated despite the fact we were late due to parking. The waiter we had was not the best. There was a delay in the drinks due to the bar having a lot of people, which was fine with us. The issues we had with the waiter was my wife ordered from the coolinary menu and I ordered from the regular menu. The coolinary menu had an appetizer, entree, and dessert. The waiter didn't inform us the dessert was not available for the night nor did he inform us there was no replacement. We told us we could order a dessert drink, in which we had to pay for in order to receive it. The level of service we received this year has us thinking about not going back to the restaurant.

We came for martinis and special drinks and evening classical jazz.
Jazz was nice and smooth.
Drinks were definetely not worth the price! Poorly made and mixed. With prevalence of cheap alcohol in mixed drinks (for example vermouth in the drink with more expensive scotch)
If you only looking for mixed drinks, besides ok jazz music and great ambiance - not worth the money!
They do not have any desert also.

Our table was perfect for what we wanted, a place to have a great meal where we could hear live jazz, and yet still carry on a conversation at our table. Then, after the meal, we walked over to see the band up close. The place has a wonderful atmosphere.

This place is incredible. A must-go while in New Orleans, especially if you love live jazz music. The appetizers, entrees, and desserts are all incredible: in my party of 7, every single person loved their food. We tried the hangar steak, the pasta with shrimp added, the market fish, and the shortrip. All delicious! The restaurant also has a great ambiance and terrific service. Our server, Nate, made excellent drink recommendations based on each of our tastes. We all loved the cocktails we received. He provided some of the best service I’ve had at any restaurant. Don’t hesitate to eat here while in NOLA!

My wife & I were on vacation in New Orleans, and the Bombay Club was recommended by several Internet searches as a good fine dining restaurant. We went on a weekday evening. The restaurant was not crowded, and it was intimate and quiet. The décor was dark wood and art. We had a private booth, and a very attentive waiter. The martinis were excellent, the food outstanding and the service top-notch. They also had a solo piano player providing soft jazz dinner music. Overall, a great experience. We would definitely go back.

We were seated in a nice private table overlooking the band. Nate was our server-he was friendly and provided us with just the right amount of service. The table and the service were the highlight of the experience...Food missed the mark - although presentation was on par, they were cold and didn’t have the taste to match the presentation. It appears that this once was a great place to visit, but it needs serious update.

Exceeded my expectations. An oasis of charming sophistication just steps away from the debauchery of the French Quarter.
Picked this place based on Yelp and open table reviews to have a healthy but hearty and authentic dinner with friends while visiting NOLA for a ballroom dance competition.
Although the restaurant is small but the courtyard dinning was an amazing experience. The echos of the live music in the main dining room added extra charm.
The staff was friendly, helpful and accommodating. Our host, Nick, was knowledgeable of the food and drink menu. He recommended 2 delicious appetizers that started the night just right.
The beet salad and the white fish main course were delicious and done just right.
I highly recommend this place. You will not be disappointed.

Food was very good, but the cocktails selection was superb. I drink wine and champagne, but was talked into a rum drink and loved it. My husband is a bourbon guy and loved his bourbon cocktail. Amazing experience, with live piano music. Will be back.

My son (11) and I were in town for his work. We are late dinners so finding a restaurant that serves food late is often difficult. Luckily The Bombay Club serves dinner until 11pm on weekends. We had the BEST burger (hands down) ever! We weren't going to eat burgers for dinner but noticed someone nearby having one and it looked so good so we ordered it as well. It was FANTASTIC! The service was a bit slow and abrupt but in no way rude, I think it was just kinda busy. The restaurant has a nice ambiance to it. A jazz band was playing just two tables away from us so it was a bit noisy but it is a jazz club too and expected.

Over all it was good for food and wine. Martini was just mediocre. Not cold and waiter didn’t want to make it right so we drank it. Good value on the wine-Caymus full liter at about 40% mark up. Our waiter struggled through our meal. Hard time opening wine and speaking clearly.
He may have been very new and may be in wrong position.

Great food, great piano player and excellent service.
Loved the crab and chorizo beignets were light and crispy
Our server Forest was very accommodating and paced our meal just as we asked
Only thing that wasn’t perfect was the dessert. The cake layer of the dulce bar was dry and was overall a disappointment compared to the rest of the meal.
It was a relaxing evening compared to most of the French quarter

Bombay Club has become my favorite restaurant during my 4month stay in New Orleans. This polished, yet not snobbish establishment tucked back from Conti Street in the French Quarter is an intimate venue for live jazz music with an exciting menu of 50+ perfectly balanced cocktails. Their food menu is much extensive, but everything on it is fantastic (I've tried nearly everything on it) , with the mussels being the standout dish, in my opinion.

We dined at Bombay Club Martini Bar & Restaurant for our birthday. There were so many choices in the New Orleans area that it was hard to choose, especially since it was our first time going. Bombay Club stood out because of the atmosphere and daily jazz performances. We were very happy with our experience, we were greeted very friendly by the host and found our reservation very quickly. He asked us what brought us to the area and we said our birthdays. Luckily we got seated at the private booth, which was a wonderful surprise. Our server was super friendly (sadly I’m horrible with names), she recommended a few items on the menu and took her time to answer our questions. The host then surprised us with two glasses of champagne and wished us happy birthday. Even though it was a tad busy, our server took her time and made sure everything came out properly. I even over herd her telling the bartender, not to put strawberries in our drink(sadly allergic). The food was delicious and had so much flavor. The jazz trio was amazing and added a special element to our night. Thank you again for making our birthday dinner a wonderful one.

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.

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 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.
