Fountain Lounge

The Fountain Lounge brings a touch of modern sophistication to the timeless class of the hotel. Enjoy live entertainment, innovative cocktails and inspiring small plates surrounded by rich furnishings and elegant decor.

Small plates, big flavor

Since 1938, the Fountain Lounge has been a gathering place. A place for conversation, cocktails, entertainment and beyond. Situated in the Roosevelt’s lobby, the location is ideal for a quick meeting and a bite to eat, or a long detour on your way up to your room.

Often described as ‘casual and carefree as a night in Paris,’ you won’t want to miss the opportunity to lounge alongside history while listening to live entertainment.

To make reservations, please call (504) 648-5486.

Fountain Lounge patrons receive complimentary parking for up to four hours.

Loved the Fountain Lounge. The service was spot on. Sunday brunch was exceptional.

Originally we were placed right at the front near the band. It was far too loud for conversation and after much discussion we chose a table at the back. It was perfect! Our waiter was delightful, charming, polite and very professional. Food was great but grilled salad could have used a more flavorful dressing. Brussel sprouts were the best I have had...ever! I would definitely go back!

The wine is waaaay over priced. Way too expensive for the tiny pours.

he Fountain Lounge brings a touch of new-world sophistication, while offering subtle nods to the timeless elements of the hotel. The Sazerac Bar harks back to the days when legendary Louisiana Governor Huey P. Long called The Roosevelt home. Sip classic cocktails and dine on fine cuisine in these historic venues surrounded by original artworks. Pay a visit to Chef John Besh's award-winning Domenica restaurant where Italian fare is prepared with passion and served in an atmosphere that embraces a laid-back Mediterranean attitude to life.

Music was nice at a perfect sound level, waiter didn't come around much. I personally think the restaurant needs more food choices

While the dining area was relaxed and enjoyable, the service was uneven and awkward at times. There was a sizeable delay between appetizers and entrees . The crab and crawfish au gratin was a delicious and the highlight of an otherwise average meal.

Good service. Good ok but not memorable. Good location for concerts at Saenger

Reviews we read were consistent w our experience. Food is good. Bar is good. Live music was good. Service - NOT good. Gentleman at table next to us went 30 mins before his server came back to his table. People on other side of us had to go to bar to pay check Bc waitress disappeared. Doubtful would ever go here again. Shame Bc great location and historic hotel

What a Christmas Disappointment! Sure you can't beat the Roosevelt lobby for a festive Christmas meal, but stay away from the Fountain Lounge. We made our reservations for Christmas night early in the season and were never made aware there would be a prix fix menu for a whopping $80 per person. Probably could have lived with that except that the food was just plain mediocre, and the main course was just plain bad. We have dined here before with great trio playing and delicious food reasonably priced. Too bad the management fell down on the job for such a special night for us. So sorry Christmas 2016 put a bad taste in our mouths for what was once a terrific little gem.

Great place for a happy get together. Food was great. Noise was just overwhelmingly loud. Difficult to speak to and hear what the waiter was saying.

Over hyped; over priced. Food is nothing special. Alcoholic mixed beverages are over priced and flat tasting (the Ramos Fizz is a total bust). Very noisy. Seating is not comfortable and restaurant NOT conducive to lingering.

Service is very slow. Do not expect a dining experience with the prices you pay there. Food is okay definitely better at other we'll known places in NOLA. The light display at the Roosevelt for Christmas is absolutely beautiful! Unfortunately this restaurant does not do any favors to the hotel!
