Tommy's is excellent! The food was delicious and the setting is very nice. Our server, Samuel, was fabulous. He was very patient and explained the menu well. The food was outstanding and I never felt rushed. Truly a great dinning experience from start to finish!

Way too overpriced for mediocre food. The salads had brown lettuce... The bread was stale... And the food tasted reheated. The server was nice though.

Our waiter was rude, pompous, and had a self-inflated ego of himself. Other than that, the food was outstanding and a great value for the portion size. I would highly recommend this restaurant to all and hope that you do not get the particular waiter we were graced with.

My friend and I went to New Orleans on a girl's trip and wanted a nice dinner on our last night there and we were not disappointed at all by Tommy's. The staff was so incredibly friendly and the food... WOW. I got the filet mignon and it was hands down the best steak I've ever had. When offered a drink to go with dessert, our waiter suggested an espresso-like martini. I told him I wasn't a big coffee fan so he asked me straight up what I like. With only the thought of coffee, raspberry, and hazelnut he made me the most amazing dessert martini. I highly highly recommend Tommy's Cuisine!

Love the decor. Waiter was experienced, helpful, and prompt. The complimentary bruschetta was a tasty start to the Mother's Day brunch. The black drum topped with crawfish, shrimp, and artichokes was delicious. The eggs benedict received good reviews. The house salad as well as the seafood topped eggplant medallions was delicious. The chocolate dessert and pecan pie were a perfect ending to a great meal. I do think that bread would have been a welcomed addition to the meal.

We were seated promptly for our reservation. However, after placing our order and waiting more than 90 minutes for our food, we asked our server if we would be eating soon. He said, "Yeah.... thanks for not getting up and leaving like most people have tonight. We're really busy!" Finally, our food arrived. My pasta was ice cold and mushy, and tasted like a salt lick. His veal parmesan also was cold and salty, pasta again mushy, and veal not light and crisp, but raw batter and just gross. They did offer us a free dessert, but when EVERYTHING is this bad, do you really risk it? We declined politely, and manager said he'd comp all our food. In reality, he comped a salad. Not only will I never go back, but I'll tell anyone who asks me how terrible this place is. We had some great Italian fare in New Orleans, but it definitely was not here!

In the past, we have enjoyed every aspect of our dinners at Tommy’s. On Saturday, May 4, we had a very disappointing experience. Our waiter was definitely not on his game. He may have been overworked that night, but he was so inattentive to our table. The service was very slow. Most of the food was good, but the veal picatta was cold and bland. The duck was over cooked. There are too many great restaurants in New Orleans to waste the time and money at Tommy’s again.

Excellent meal. Only issue we had were the obnoxious, loud drunks next to us, and the restaurant not controlling their behavior. What I had hoped to be a quiet, romantic dinner with my wife was constantly interrupted by their loud and vulgar language. The maitre d later came up to them, apologized for the slow service they received, and gave them his card. It was like rewarding the loud, obnoxious drunks. I should have complained, or asked to be moved, but I didn't. I would like to go back, but just not sure I want to experience that again.

Cocktails and food were good. Our server Hanah was a real charmer, professional and helpful. She was the best server we experienced over four nights of dining out in New Orleans. We compared everyone against her, and she came out on top -- by a long shot -- each and every evening.

When we lived in the city and did not have children we enjoyed
Tommy's a good bit. Since, moving to the northshore and having children we have not come to Tommy's. So when we decided to go to Tommy's for Easter with a five year old and two year old, i was a little nervous, even-tough my children are pretty good. The staff and management were great with checking on us and making sure the kids had everything they needed. Of course the food was even better than a remember and look forward to going back.

Our reservation was early, and it was not crowded. The service was excellent, the food came quickly and was delicious. I like fairly quiet restaurants, and due to the architecture and decor, I can imagine it gets very noisy and loud at peak dining times. I am likely to return but will stick to the earlier hours.

My husband and I went to Tommy’s for our 5 year anniversary dinner. Our food was delicious but it seemed the waiter forgot about us after an hr of waiting for our food and not seeing our waiter we had to ask the host what was going on. Immediately someone came to our table and said our food would be out in 5 minutes which it did. I would come again just wished that wouldn’t of happened.

We enjoyed a very special dinner to celebrate professional awards. The food was outstanding! It's rare that everyone in a group all rates their meals as outstanding, but our group of 8 did! The atmosphere is lovely, but there was a loud group behind us that made it a little hard to hear each other.
