It's been 20 years since I've been to this restaurant. I'm a native, but don't live in town anymore. There are SO many great places that have opened since then, I had neglected the Grill Room. Elegant, masculine decor in the Windsor Court style? Check. Friendly, but cool reception at the entrance? Check. The menu has changed quite drastically, but that was to be expected and perhaps welcomed. You basically have a limited choice of appetizers and entrees for a reasonable fixed price. You can add some "luxe" items at an uncharge. They've also added a wines by the glass option using Coravin, a closed dispensing system to render a glass at a time from premium bottles. Ah, a 2010 Brunello! Wonderful. It took a few minutes for the waiter to get to me, but I ordered a glass. At $50+ a glass, this is not an everyday option, but what the heck? The waiter returns after a very long 15 minutes. He starts the process of infiltrating the bottle tableside when I notice the vintage on the bottle. 2012. I inquire, since 2010 was a great year for Brunello, 2012 not so much. He seems a bit thrown, apologizes, and says he'll go search. After another 5 minutes, he returns and says they don't have the 2010. Alright then, no big deal -- mistakes happen (though from the fact that wine had already been dispensed from the bottle, some previous patrons had obviously been unaware they were paying an ultra-premium price for the wrong vintage). I then chose a 2013 Shafer from the same Coravin list. 2013 was an excellent vintage. 10 minutes go by. The waiter returns. He shows me the bottle triumphantly. 2015. Wrong vintage again, I say. He looks perplexed; he hadn't even checked it. So, it's been 40 minutes and no one has taken my food order and I have no wine. I have to ask for bread. Short story: there was no compensation made for the wine debacle (I just accepted the 2015), the food that followed was average at best, and the Grill Room may have to wait 20 more years for me to return.

I selected the Windsor Hotel for our dining experience off of the web. We were staying at the Le Meridian. I chose the Grill room from the menu selections and the reviews. When we walked in,
what a wonderful surprise. The hotel is beautiful. The murals added so much to the decor, and the furnishings were just elegant. The patio room, where we ate, had such a lovely view. The waiter was most gracious. The food presentation was a feast for the eyes, and the quality of the food was a delight to the palette. I wish that our stay had been more than the one night. We would have loved to have returned for brunch, lunch, and dinner. Thanks for a most memorable experience.

The service was below standards. We could not find our waiter. I served water to my table.

The food was well priced except the gumbo was too spicy, and the side dishes were not anything I would recommend to friends. On the other hand, the Tuna was sensational.

Nevertheless, I left a 20% tip. I was not there to hurt anyone. I was at The Grill to celebrate my friend's birthday, not with you to be unpleasant.

Thank you for asking.

Pre Mother's day lunch. Loved it!!! Nice 2 top table 1 row off the window overlooking the driveway courtyard. Mom loved everything except the gumbo.. She likes her own better. LOL!! Everything else was above her expectations. She will be back with friends and so will I. Go for lunch Monday thru Friday, one of the best deals in town. Get the chicken marsala you won't regret it.

2nd floor dining room overlooks the courtyard, or inside is a little more formal. Menu is small plate tasting format. We had the mushrooms and cauliflower, scallops, shrimp, crabcakes, and Wagyu filet. Wine list was very extensive. Each course was brought out seperately with enough time between servings to appreciate the presentation. Food was excellent and service very good, informed, and professional. Thank you Ross. Our favorite of the week and highly recommended.

We stayed at the Windsor Court Hotel in April 2018 for three nights. We loved our room and found the staff at the the hotel to be very helpful and attentive. We had breakfast every morning in the Grill Room and two dinners in the evening during our stay. The food for both breakfast and dinner was creative and delicious. I would highly recommend it to others.

Had a Saturday brunch at the Grill Room on a stormy Saturday during the FQ Fest rain out. It was an excellent meal!!! My only complaint, if a complaint at all, is the portion size. They serve HUGE meals!!! Go hungry and plan to share!!
We had the flatbread, veggie egg white omelet, strawberry cream stuffed beignets, smoked Gouda grits, sausage, hash browns, eggs and more!! Too much food for four people. We all tasted off of each other’s plates. We didn’t care for the side dish hash browns but otherwise, it was a wonderful brunch. Loved it and will definitely return when in NOLA but will order less food next time. Yum!!! Just thinking of it stays on my mind. That’s a good meal.
By the way, we spent an hour after brunch in the bar to wait out the rain. Nice low keyed bar with live jazz. Nice lazy Saturday.

The food was amazing and at $19.84, the price was as well! Service was a little slow and we were disappointed that we couldn't get a window seat, as this was a birthday celebration. (We did indicate such on the reservation.) I can't wait to go back, though this time I will specifically request a view.

I usually love my Grill Room lunches, but today, everything was off. The martinis which are normally my favorite in all of New Orleans, were very ordinary today. They usually have a very unique olive brine that they use that gives a little sweetness to the brine and the olive, and the martini as well which is just lovely! Today they tasted like just any old off the shelf olive brine was used. The gumbo was bordering on burnt roux and had very little meat in it, really next to none. They had a crawfish pasta which had a great flavor, but very little crawfish. I'll go back, but I hope they bring back the regular olive brine and give a little more meat in the entrees.

Wonderful restaurant and business dinner. Always love the Windsor Court Grill Room and it’s location. The only concern I have is the fruit flies that seem to have been a problem during this visit and the last two lunches I’ve had there. Delicious food and value but having to shoo away flies during lunch is not fun. Hope it gets better because usually this is the best lunch in town.
