The Carriage House never disappoints. Houmas House and grounds is decorated in a beautiful Christmas theme right now and as usual the grounds were trimmed to perfection.
We had the egg plant with crabmeat and then a beautiful chocolate dessert afterwards. Our group had a fabulous time and spent hours before and after in the gift shop and the gardens and of course the Turtle Bar
Do something nice for yourselves : take the beautiful drive over and enjoy everything from the food and liquor to the grounds and courteous staff
Lauren was an excellent server who made my birthday extra special. I highly recommend this place. The pork chop was out of this world.
Friends visiting Louisiana for the first time. Visiting from Colorado and Texas . Having family in the area and knowing so much about The Carriage House we decided to share this experience while visiting.
All dishes are delicious. Love the double pork chop. Tender, made to perfection. The brussel sprouts and sweet potato puree were wonderful.
Excellent service on both days we dined at the restaurant. Food was excellent especially the curried pumpkin soup.
We had a ladies reunion dinner. The food was outstanding
Food was absolutely delicious! The red fish and pork chop were outstanding, as was the bread pudding.
Great experience as always. Loved the pork chop! Hope they bring back the French macarons. Christian was super nice
Wonderful food and service at very reasonable prices.
Everything about an hour visit was exceptional. We had a table for 10 as a family celebration dinner. Everything was perfect. The service was top notch. I don’t even have to talk about the ambience. It’s beautiful. And the menu was absolutely spectacular. Many of our group had the red snapper and some had the pork chop. Both were memorable.
Thanks to the Carriage House for making our family get together so special!
Both the appetizers and the entrees we ordered were excellent. Add excellent service and an amazing ambiance and the result is a 5 star dining experience.
The new venue for the Carriage House is beautiful. We really enjoyed lunching there. I look forward to returning.
Just great place so cool to walk around cocktails are outstanding just like the food
It was amazing experience!! The grounds were breathtaking beautiful, dinner was amazing and the waiter was fantastic!! We will be back!!!
Food was great, but wait time for food was way too long.
We did get the prosciutto as a part of the starter ordered. When we told the waiter, she came back and said that the chef has said they were out of prosciutto. Nothing was offered to compensate and we paid full price for dish. Very unprofessional and unsatisfactory. Apart from this a very nice place to eat.
The food was excellent and can beat the quality for the price. For example, my husband ordered the red fish with rice and crab. There was SO much crab on the fish - absolutely delicious and in our opinion, moderately priced. We ended up eating here for 3 nights and will return for sure.
It was wonderful!
Delicious food, tasted 3 different dishes and all 3 were amazing. Super sweet staff. Very knowledgeable about the menu.
Lovely setting. Service was impeccable. Food was good. I did like the meal though.
Very tasty food, attentive service and nice atmosphere.
The food was outstanding and our waitress was outstanding! I wish I could remember her name. She had worked there for many years and gave us phenomenal recommendations! I highly recommend Carriage House!
Delicious food and great friendly service. Great value for an enchanting experience. Highly recommend
The food was delicious, our server, Lauren, was delightful and the decor was lovely. However, we were five people but our table was set for six. A small detail? Yes, but little things make a better experience. Will definitely be back!
Amazing food and atmosphere. One of my favorite places!
always a special evening dining at the Carriage House
We celebrated my wife’s birthday with an overnight trip to Houmas House including dinner at the Carriage House restaurant. What a spectacular place! The main dining room with its soaring ceilings and incredible architecture. The private dining room with an amazing array of Wild game on display. Impeccable service and a deliciously tempting menu. We started with turtle soup and crawfish and corn bisque, both as good as we’ve tasted anywhere. The main course was a Wagu New York Strip which was so tender and more flavorful than any steak I’ve eaten previously. My wife’s choice of crabmeat topped redfish atop a bed of dirty rice was likely some of the freshest seafood we’ve ever experienced. This restaurant prides itself on partnering with local farmers and it shows. We topped off the evening with some nightcaps at the Turtle Bar next door. We truly enjoyed our time at Houmas House and our wonderful, memorable dining experience!
The wedge salad was pretty basic but the pumpkin curry bisque was unique and delicious. My husband really enjoyed both the crab cake and rib appetizers as well. All staff were attentive and friendly but not intrusive. Hope to go back soon!
Wonderful environment, delicious food & great service.
Great food and nice folks!
Absolutely phenomenal!! The food was awesome especially the trout special
Cocktails were great also
The food was ok. Ambiance made up for everything. Not sure if I would make the drive again.
The food we received was excellent but the app ordered was never brought, had to remove from check. 2 of us received our meal but was another 15 min before the third person received their food despite ordering the exact same thing as one of our group. For the price would expect better but will definitely try again as it was still an enjoyable experience.
I would highly recommend the Carriage House @ The Houmas House Gardens. Christian was our waiter and he was so efficient. The fish was cooked perfect. The gumbo and turtle soup were also delicious. Also to top if off we had the white chocolate bread pudding. So yummy!!!!
This is a great restaurant to go to for a very nice lunch or I would recommend for a special occasion.
Had a wonderful birthday dinner for my husband.
Great night! Owner Kevin was very nice and accommodating.
Great service and atmosphere! Great bloody Mary’s!
Pork chop and scallops were cooked perfectly. Service was prompt and very attentive.
I have traveled the world and dined at some of the most lauded restaurants available to the public. I have visited palaces in the Jaipur region of India. Our entire Houmas House Estate experience rivals my most memorable epicurean and sensory experiences in my 47 years. The gardens are breathtaking, the fountains mesmerizing, the grand old trees of hundreds years watch lovingly over the waters, and the two black swans proudly preen at their convenience. Of course, the main house is jaw dropping in its restoration and decoration. The Carriage house main room is breathtaking in its ambiance and service and the food shockingly elegant and delightful for this gem buried in the bowels of Ascension Parish of Louisiana along the Great Mississip. Oh, and the bar had over 300 bourbons and scotches to pick from in a “take you back in time” setting. And for the first time searching many years, they had a 25 year Bunnahabhain (my favorite Islay region scotch)! This place is a must from a 1000 person wedding or event to lunch for two on a nice day. Bravo
Such an excellent dining experience and way to spend our anniversary dinner!! Arrive a little early so you can enjoy the garden walk to the Carriage House. The scenery, atmosphere, service, food and dessert were all excellent!!!
