The food and service were great; starting with the hostess' greeting to the band serenade my wife for her birthday. The menu had a few unique dishes that were just great, including the watermelon and heirloom tomato salad was special.

My lamb chops were good. Potato soup was terrible. My husband's crab cake was not good nor did he like the gumbo.

Only if they had travelled all day and did not want to go outside the hotel. The sea bass was bland and small. The rest of the meal was ok. Over priced

Food, service and ambiance were excellent. I had the red fish, wife had sea bass. Both were good. Wish they had a few more choices on me u but what we had was very good.

Great brunch with nice jazz music. Fried green tomatoes were good. Chicken and waffles were good, although chicken was too tough. Complimentary chai biscuit was fantastic. Amuse bouche -- shrimp salad -- was great.

Went for the Jazz Brunch with a group of girls for a bachelorette weekend. Their jazz band wasn’t the type of jazz band you’d expect when you’re in New Orleans. I was expecting a live upbeat environment and the restaurant was actually very quiet. Other than that our experience was great.

Wonderful dining experience in an ornate dining room. Lunch menu was excellent value with many choices (main + three sides + dessert = $19.84). Every item was delicious with the crab cake, Brussels sprouts and gumbo being standouts. Good wine and premium martinis available at special lunch prices. Impeccable service from the hostess and our waiter. Can't wait for a return visit.

Lovely experience. The service was a bit slow, but not too bad. My piece of red fish was small for the money, but tasty. We would definitely try it again.

I have a lovely birthday celebration with friends at the Grill Room. The setting was elegant and the food was amazing. And, to top it off, they had a few little “surprises.” Highly recommend!

Very surprised to see the next table at the moment of receiving the check they also were brought some small pastries.

Excellent service and ambience wonderful. All the food except jambalaya was very good. Took several friends for Coolinary to try $19.84 lunch. Appreciated free parking as we drove from northshore. Would have been rated a 5 but charging $5 for ice tea was a bit over the top. Should have had another $2 martini instead!

We enjoyed a lovely lunch. Our waitress, Jeannette, was perfect in that she didn't rush us when ordering (we hadn't seen each other in a long time and were catching up). The food was delicious as was the sparkling wine. Being August, we were able to order off the Coolinary menu, which made it all the more enjoyable (and affordable!)

I will be back this Friday with another friend ....it was wonderful ...the Windsor Court was top of the line...a hidden gem, beautiful setting and view...I could not wipe the smile off my face nor could Yani.
The hostess greeted us so pleasant and seated us immediately ...great! We participated in the COOLinary menu ... “ the meat and three “special ...the red fish, salad, and grilled Brussels sprout was delicious and I loved the portion size ....the andouille gumbo was too thick and salty but the cute little biscuit and bread was sooo good and the martini I had was awesome.
Our waiter Edgar was excellent and so patient...and another server passed by with a tasty sample of crawfish dish on a propped chilled spoon..wow..just as I thought this satisfying little feast was over Edgar came with 3 small scoops of sorbet in different flavors. Ahhh So glad I chose Windsor ,

Everyone was so nice! So many employees wished us a happy anniversary. The food was fantastic, and we also received a surprise dessert of chocolate-covered strawberries and pralines. The plate had Happy Anniversary written in chocolate on it! What a sweet surprise!

Went for Sunday brunch. Sat by window overlooking the courtyard. Lovely view. Jazz trio playing quietly in the background. Steak and eggs cooked to perfection. We told them we were celebrating our anniversary. They surprised us with chocolate covered strawberries for dessert. Written on the plate in chocolate was Happy Anniversary.

The plate-lunch special is a real treat, but at a reasonable price, it's not just for special occasions.

First timers... The oysters was just ok, according to my husband. (“Definitely nothing close to Red Fish Grill’s oyster). The Crab cake was disappointing. First time EVER not eating all of a crab cake. It appeared it had a lot of filler. My husband and I both had the red fish entree. It was just ok. Beautifully plated. The fish was pan seared, but the skin side was soggy and not crispy. Immediately thought if Chef Gordon :)) he would have been shouting at the cook!

The muse, bread served before dinner and service was great. Will come again, but will order something different the next time.

We came to New Orleans for our 20th anniversary and found this little gem. From start to finish everything was amazing! Impeccable food, service and staff sets them above and beyond. Brook, our server, was absolutely outstanding and she definitely made this the most memorable part of our trip. I would highly recommend The Grill Room- you won’t be disappointed!
