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!

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.

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

Got there on time for our 7:15 reservation but our table was not ready as they had a large HS Homecoming crowd. We had a couple of French Martinis which were very good! We were seated as soon as we got our drinks at the bar so it worked out well. Hostesses were very polite and helpful. Dining room has high ceilings and is particularly loud.

Curried pumpkin bisque was delicious as usual! My wife got the Eggplant and it was plentiful & tasted great. Wedge salad was a little too light in the dressing for my preference. The shrimp pesto pasta was just the right amount of food, but was nothing fancy but tasted great - especially the marinated cherry tomatoes. Creole cheesecake was tasty. Price for meal was very reasonable.

This is a really nice, moderately priced restaurant. The menu is very small (limited) but food is good. As it got crowded the noise level was very high. Beautiful grounds that you walk thru leading to the restaurant. Gumbo is delicious!

Food was Fantastic. Terrific Flavors, but not overdone. Service was great. Highly recommend. It's a substantial Walk from the Parking Lot to the Restaurant on the Houmas House property, so keep in mind the Weather & allow time to arrive. The grounds are Amazing!!

The menu is incredibly limited. There was no variety. The wait for food was totally unreasonable! No dinner specials (or at least none that we were told about) and only two appetizers on the menu. I settled on what I thought was a dinner salad, but it was a wilted hot side salad that was completely Inedible. I showed the waitress and she just looked at Me and walked away. My husband had the eggplant which was sub par and we placed a to go order to Take to my elderly mother in law and they brought it to us 30 minutes before we received our dine in entrées. We had to eat at this tiny table with a big To go bag taking up most of it. I also had to go to the bar to get my water refill and bought a drink at the bar. The bar service was wonderful and great variety

Birthday celebration. We waited about 45 minutes between salad and entre. Abbie was our server. She was very nice and apologetic for the delay. Ordered the scallops which were just luke warm when served. The restaurant wasn’t nearly as busy I have have experienced in the past. Tables that were seated after us were served entrees before us.

This is a beautiful place and the walk to get to the Carriage House Restaurant is just beautiful. You walk through the manicured grounds and gardens and see the house and surrounding buildings. The service and food were exceptional. I had the Petite Lasagna and it was very small but very hot and delicious. My husband had the double cut pork chop and said it was very good. It came with mashed sweet potatoes and vegetables. Desserts were good but small for $10.00 each. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very ornate. If you're looking for a nice evening in a beautiful place this is it.
