I've been to the Bonbay Club for martinis & piano in the past- very fun! The past 2 years I've come for Sunday brunch. The patio and dining room have more ambience thn the bar area, but the food is sensational regardless of where you're sitting. Impeccable service also.

Such potential. The menu continues to shrink. Service was excellent but a cocktail was forgotten (why does this happen? It's revenue) Food is always good, drinks excellent (but again shrinking in size) . I hope they reinvest in the tables and chairs soon .. beginning to become uncomfortable.

I'm sorry not to be able to rate this higher, because the ambiance and music was great, and the first half of the experience was fun. But, everything changed after the first course - neither entree or waitress showed up for over an hour. Even when we snagged a different waiter to track ours down, entree took forever and had clearly been under a heat lamp too long. Pity, spoiled a good vibe. Eventually, as we paid, we were offered us a drink on the house, but it was too little too late.

The food was great with a good choice to share between our group of six. Music and ambiance was fantastic, lots of people enjoying themselves. Service was fair - meal order taken and delivered in a timely fashion. However, drink service was slow and we had to chase up the waiter for our order on a number of occasions.

Bombay Club is a hidden gem in the French Quarter. Great place to go and have a private meal, they have curtained booths if that's what you prefer. The Hangar Steak was divine.

I ordered the first appetizer it came out cold. I ordered the second, goat cheese and beet salad, that came out with beets and feta....FETA for $12. Nope. Sent that back and got the manager. I explained that I don't like it when someone trys and passes something off on me hoping that I would not know the difference between feta and goat cheese and/or I would be too meek to call them on this. I left without eating having uber to just go there. I have been in the past several times, not sure what was going on but not cool.

I’ve lived in this city my whole life, but yet never been to the Bombay club. Went there for the first time. The drink menu is magnificent/mine blowing. The food is on point, the flavor & spice made my taste buds explode in deliciousness. Mouthwatering for sure! I will be back multiple times guaranteed! Great spot for date night!

Open Table would only allow me to make a 5pm appearance, but Bombay staff adjusted that to six...thanks! Already the beef entree was sold-out so i went w the hunter chick. The real treat of the night was the scotch egg on black-eyes! There was a free floor show from three young men who were either super happy or drunk - said show included a handstand near my niche table w a fall that spilled someone's drink! Staff took all of this without drama. Was my third visit to Bombay - will very likely come next year, too. Wish they would bring back the potatocake w brussel sprouts!

We ate here as a family whilst on holiday in New Orleans. Our starters of fried brussel sprouts and crab and chorizo beignets were delicious and unusual. My daughter had the braised short ribs which was tender and very tasty, I had sheepshead fish and chips, a mild tasty white fish cooked in Arbita beer batter with Cajun flavoured fries, a little bit greasy but very good. My husband had the burger which looked small by comparison to some he’s had but he said was plenty big enough and felt full afterwards. Cocktail selection was excellent and a jazz pianist played in the background which was a nice touch. Waiter service unobtrusive but excellent.

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 to receive it. The level of service we received this year has us thinking about not going back to the restaurant.


UPDATE***

I was contacted by the manager of the Bombay Club to invite us back due to the subpar service. The second time around was the best!!!! The food was excellent, the drinks were strong and smooth, and the atmosphere was calm and entertaining. The waitress for the night was prompt and knowledge about the menu and drinks. The manager came to our table to ensure everything went well. My wife and I knew there was an issue before and this time the manager and waitress went above and beyond. We are definitely going back for brunch and dinner.

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.
