Not the experience I hoped for! Upon arrival waited for a few minutes to be seated. Once seated was seated next to a loud group with a big dog sitting at the table. ( not everyone wants to eat with your animal unless its a service animal). The atmosphere was very LOUD!From the dancing singing waiter to the cackling at the bar and not to mention very awful salty food! I also told my waiter ablot my food and she tried to justify by saying we season food very heavy in New Orleans. I do not recommend this restaurant to anyone!
The wait staff was fabulous. Very friendly, very attentive. In fact, my wife and I feel like we have new friends. The food was extraordinary. It was perfectly prepared and seasoned. Excellent!! The restaurant had some professional singers/piano players performing during the night. All of them were very talented. We were celebrating our anniversary and everything was perfect. I would highly recommend this establishment.
AWSOME AND THEY HAVE THE BEST WAITRESS AND WAITER THEY TREATED US LIKE ROYALILITY
Just a great place to have a good time with family and friends. We visited with our nieces from Atlanta and they really had a good time. The food was excellent!! OMG that chicken and biscuit!! Chef Carl and the wait staff were on point. It's a way to invest in our community, have good food, and fun. We came when there was the rain storm in New Orleans. It was a hassle moving around that day, but were so glad we came
Chef Carl’s chicken is amazing! The staff is super friendly and accommodating and Sam is a superb pianist and vocalist. Monday night at the Fountain Lounge is a must!
Chef Carl's fried chicken pop-up at the Fountain Lounge is incredible.
Any Monday night I am in New Orleans I will definitely go back.
We loved Chef Carl’s fried chicken and can’t wait to go back! His red beans and rice, slaw, and biscuits are also delicious, and a HUGE bonus was his willingness to make naked fried chicken for the gluten free member of our party. Our server was very nice but very slow, but overall it was a great experience.
It was half price wines Wednesday and we had a wonderful bottle of Dom perignon. Great everything. Thanks Fountain .
We were celebrating our 20th anniversary at the Roosevelt. All was well worth our selection. We decided while there, we would not wait for another 20 years to repeat the experience. the food and the ambiance was ellegant.
Fried chicken!!! We chose to dine at the Fountain Lounge in the beautiful Roosevelt Hotel for their Monday night fried chicken special. Chef Carl showcases his decades old recipe for juicy, slightly spicy, classic fried chicken. The meal is served family style, accompanied by two sides, which on that evening were red beans and rice as well as cole slaw. There was an added bonus of a music--piano and vocals that served as a lovely background. Chef Carl made the rounds from table to table to say hello, and it was an altogether delightful evening.
Excellent again! The Fountain Lounge never disappoints.
Pre theater dinner. Prompt service, beautiful setting, good food.
We are locals and were curious about Chef Carl’s fried chicken special. It was really enjoyable and the service was excellent, plus the ambiance was great.
Fried chicken on Mondays is soooo good.
Great fried chicken by Carl on Monday nights!
We ate here after the symphony on Saturday night. While the atmosphere was nice the food was't too good and the service was worse. The staff was slow and confused. They brought out 4 bowls of soup at three different intervals. They served one bowl and then 5 minutes later a waiter brought another bowl and then 10 minutes later a waiter brought out 2 more bowls. It was crazy. Maybe they were just having a bad night.
Great food and service. Brussel sprouts were amazing. Will Def go back.
Carl’s chicken was amazing! If I lived here, I would return!
The chef came out to say hello and made it so fun!
What a fabulous way to celebrate any occasion with chef Carl’s outstanding fried chicken, biscuits, Cole slaw, red beans and rice, served family style in the ambiance of the fountain lounge in the fashionable and elegant Roosevelt hotel. Great service!
Service was good food was room temperature condiments were served like room service appetizer was served with entree
AMAZING food and great piano singers. Highly recommend even if you're not staying at the Roosevelt. The scallops & shrimp are top notch 👌
Chicken, biscuits, cole slaw, and red beans were perfect.
We came there to see Richard scott
We had heard about the wonderful fried chicken that was served on Mondays. It did live up to the hype. The ambiance was great with the soft sounds of the piano and vocalist in the background.
Loved getting to meet Carl and finally getting to partake in the fried chicken dinner. The meal was delightful and very tasty. The biscuits melted in your mouth while the chicken was fried to perfection. Looking forward to the next time we will be in town on a Monday to enjoy this special treat again. The live music was also outstanding!
Everything about it was great also enjoyed live piano entertainment
Service was good but drinks and food came out very slowly. Red velvet dessert very small rip off. But it is New Orleans. Good was good.
The food, first of all, was delicious (except the desserts seemed lackluster in comparison)! Cocktails, equally well-mixed. However, service was extremely slow and this was before the restaurant was even half full.
I’d read other reviews having the same complaints. It must be in the kitchen, where it’s apparently understaffed. There is no reason that on a Wednesday night it should be this bad.
The pianist was very good, but we still had to talk loud to be heard over the speakers, and we were sitting furthest away from the piano.
Delicious food and quick service for the pre-theatre menu made for a great combination!! We’ll definitely be back.
Absolutely the best beignets in New Orleans!!!
Fun atmosphere for Tuesday night Burger & Bubbles. There was a delay in getting our food timely to make the performance at the Seagner. May have had some kitchen help issues and we were rushed to eat after waiting close to a hour. However, the atmosphere, service & food was great. Would go again but not before theater performances.
Great service and food! And the music was fantastic
Had an amazing meal with the greatest service at the fabulous Fountain Lounge. Would absolutely recommend!!!
The food and service were great. Clean restaurant. However it should not take 45 minutes for French toast and steak and eggs rare. There were only 5 tables occupied. Staff very nice. Kitchen needs to speed up.
Tre was a wonderful server, and we enjoyed our experience.
I was a little disappointed in this well-reviewed lounge. I came here for a casual business dinner, and overall the food was very disappointing. For starters, we ordered the wings, mussels, and brussel sprouts. The portions were generous, but the taste and preparation was only so-so. The wings were decent, and I would order them again. I ordered the burger which was only lukewarm and the brioche bun was a little dry. Some may like the grilled sweet onions, but I prefer raw. The fries were good. The biggest disappointment was the dessert. We ordered the red velvet cake (dry), the flourless chocolate cake (meh), and the bread pudding. I liked the little zing of the chicory on the bread pudding, but in a city known for this dessert I expected more. Don't get me wrong, the food was not bad, but I expect so much more in NOLA. The service was attentive and helpful, and the vibe of the place was neat. I may have gone on a bad night, but I would likely not try again.
Monday fried chicken night was fabulous. The rice and beans were so tasty, actually everything was seasoned perfectly, nice balance of savory and spicy. The service was impeccable as well. I’d go again in a heartbeat. Excellent dining experience. A perfect 10 on a scale of 1-10.
When we got there at 5:30, there was only one other table of 3 ladies, and we told the waitress we had to be out by 6:30. She assured us there would be no problem, and we ordered quickly. They brought us our first course quickly, and then the waitress disappeared. When I asked to see the manager, he apologized and comped our wine. They brought our entree, which was terrible tasting, and our bill at 6:30, and we paid and left. We will never eat there again.
We ate there on New Year’s Eve and had a special menu, which was a bargain for that date. The fish was a little bit overcooked. We were still enjoying our aperitifs and the waitress kept asking if she could pour us our wine... She also asked constantly if we were doing fine but left before we got a chance to say something. No special ambiance for this holiday in the restaurant. Outside, plenty since the restaurant is in the Roosevelt Hotel (Waldorf Astoria). We had a more memorable New Year’s Eve dinner at Bull & Bear in the Waldorf Astoria in Orlando.
