Menu is still too limiting and too full of carbs. Need to offer more selections.

The person when you go to the plantation checks you in, but she does not say you can go directly to the restaurant. We spent 45 minutes walking around in the store since we thought that someone was coming to get us.

We eat at Houmas house as often as we can. Our favorite is Latil’s but the Carriage house serves some of the exact same food. The Wagyu steak is great!

Everything was wonderful. Derek made me a special cocktail. Mrs Lauren was wonderful as a waitress. The food options were outstanding including the rock shrimp wedge, the scallops, the steak, and the macaron dessert!! Loved it all!

Food was outstanding, can’t beat the ambiance and walk through the gardens to the restaurant was fantastic. Maybe slightly overpriced without the surroundings but worth it as a package.

I have been many times but Valentine’s Day was awful. The food was cooked earlier in the day and held (and dry) over and heated prior to delivery. The crowds were enormous and clearly handling this volume of food was not easy. The wines and service were good although not their normal.

I will return but not on a holiday!

You cannot get better than this location. Beautiful surroundings and atmosphere in the dining area. The service was quick on a very busy night. Left a little to be desired but overall a very nice place. I would eat there again, but may try Latil's next time.

Kevin and his staff run an amazing place of business and restaurant. When a 92 year old Sicilian says the lasagna is the best he’s ever had.... that means something!

We are from New Orleans, and live among and enjoy some truly great restaurants, but on November 22, 2019 we decided to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary at “Houmas House” with it’s beautiful gardens and renowned restaurants. We had dinner for the first time at “The Cottage House” and would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that enjoys good food! The restaurant was decorated beautifully with a Victorian/Georgian old world style ambiance. I just wanted to take pictures of the dinning room, it was comfortable and also very pretty! Our waiter “Brandon” tells us that everything is made from scratch and he meticulously goes through the menu with us,patiently answering all of our questions. I ordered the Aubergine Shrimp and my husband ordered the Louisiana Beef Short Ribs! Both dishes came out Perfect!!!! Our meal was reasonably priced and the experience and entree’s were memorable!. We can’t wait to dine there again.

The dining room was beautifully appointed, and the chairs were very comfortable. Everyone was welcoming and friendly. The atmosphere created a luxurious experience that we were in no kind of hurry to leave. That food! The chef is a master!! Josephine was wonderful and provided perfect service. I will be returning with my family soon.

A hidden gem. The walk through the Plantation grounds to the Carriage is beautiful. Then after an amazing choice of perfectly cooked food, you get to do it again.

It was a wonderful experience as always. The drinks were amazing. Laura, our waitress was funny and kind. The lasagna is the best as well as the new chocolate cake. The crab claws were quite strong and needed more marinade but overall it was amazing.

The entire dining experience was Outstanding. The music made the setting. The appetizer we had was the Flat Bread. I had the Eggplant and Shrimp dinner. It was awesome. The shrimp was swimming yesterday. 😉 Hubby had the Rosemary Chicken. Grilled to perfection. Very tasty. We finished off with the Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake.

My husband & i were staying at a Plantation about 30 minutes away & went to Houmas House for dinner because it was recommended by some locals. It was just us & one other couple the entire time we were there. Maybe that’s usual for a Tuesday evening but seemed a little odd. The service was great but food was just ok. The antiques are beautiful but the restaurant looks a little tired & not kept up very well. Mirrors over fireplaces need cleaning & chandeliers are not clean & some bulbs burned out that need replacing. Glad we went & can cross off our bucket list but won’t be returning.
