Great meal in a beautiful historic setting. We had the filet and eggplant Napoleon. Both were great. We finished the meal with red velvet strawberry cheesecake which was also amazing. We’ll definitely be back
We will absolutely be back!! The food was delicious, service was wonderful too.
Breath taking grounds, beautiful deco inside, polished service, and excellent food. A memorable evening!
Food and service was exceptional. Lauren was our server and she was awesome.
Had a great cocktail at the Turtle bar first. Then we were seated promptly and enjoyed a delicious meal. Loved the red snapper entree which was a special dish that night. Planning on returning soon!
Comfortable distancing, amply number of staff on hand. Food was excellently prepared and served hot. Somewhat limited menu, but specials of the evening made up for it. Highly recommend.
One of the best romantic and delicious dinners we've had in a very long time.
Excellent food, excellent service, beautiful setting!
Beautiful surroundings, great food, great service.
Fantastic! We enjoyed it very much. I got the eggplant with crabmeat. Excellent. My husband enjoyed a bite of it and he doesn’t particularly like eggplant!
We go here often to generat celebrate events like birthdays and anniversaries. Fabulous experience every time!
It is the perfect place to take some time off, drink a cup of coffee, and eat a leisurely brunch. The staff are top notch. They went above and beyond to serve us.
I mean we have been here numerous times and it never disappoints ever always so special and kinda magical ❤️
Great experience, but was overcharged. Didn’t notice until after I left. Will check bill more carefully next time.
We had the eggplant Napoleon and the short rib. Both dishes were outstandingly delicious
Fabulous! Will be back soon.
Great service, ambience, and food. I'm a lifelong customer!
Always a great experience with fabulous food, drinks & service.
We will be eating breakfast there soon.Beautiful grounds and garden.
It was great!
Food was good. Always great atmosphere. Grounds a treat to walk through!
Our pre-dinner drinks at the Turtle Bar were great! But, dinner was the star of the show! From the fresh salads to our main courses, it was fresh, well prepared and delicious. The plating was superb. I had the Louisiana Beef Short Ribs and they were spectacular! We will be back soon. It is the perfect spot for any celebration.
Lovely restaurant and so well done. The food was outstanding and the ambience amazing. Not real crowded. And the Turtle Bar is just so unique and wonderful drinks.
Delicious food, great service. Allow enough time to explore the grounds. Magical! Especially after dark.
Everything on the menu is exceptional, seared scallops were amazing
The Eggplant Napoleon was outstanding. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch in this quiet Carriage House on the grounds of the Houmas House Plantation. We will be back again!
Beautiful place, superb food, excellent service...
Great service and great food! We always love visiting Houma's House.
Very elegant, but yet very reasonably priced. The food was amazing and was way beyond expectations
Great food, great service and fantastic decor
First time there. Beautiful grounds & buildings. Food & service were excellent. Will definitely go back.
We had a lovely tour at Houmas house with a couple mint juleps at the Turtle Bar before dining at The Carriage House. The gumbo is delicious! It's a lovely dining experience all around from the setting, to the staff, to the food, and even the little lovebirds housed in an ornamental cage. We will definitely return soon.
Perfect as always! You can’t go wrong here.
It was our 31st anniversary
Sometimes we forget the The Carriage House is only 10 miles from our house. If you are tired of the same ole, same ole and looking for delicious food at a fair price than this is the place. The main dining room is huge, very beautiful, and well ventilated. Plus, with the added bonus of the turtle bar and then walking off your dinner along the gardens of the Houmas House. This will be our new favorite place for that special night out for dinner.
The Eggplant Napoleon never disappoints. All was delicious!
One of my most memorable dining experiences ever. Unique and gorgeous surroundings at Houmas house. Very attentive service. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. Plus once you make a reservation, you can enjoy the beautiful gardens walking in and out of the property.
Everything was as good as could be expected with the Covid-19 restrictions.
We had a wonderful time! The bar made great cocktails! I also loved my steak which was cooked perfectly!
We visited Houmas House several times but this one was made special by the
accommodating staff and bartender. They went out of their way to make our Mint Julep
by going into the herb garden to find fresh mint. The trip from Lafayette was worth it. We can't wait to return.
