My buddy and I had brunch today at Toup’s and everything was delicious. We ordered a variety of small plates, the mastery board, and the seared Foie Gras…obviously way too much for two people but we love appetizers. The Foie Gras literally melt in your mouth, it was so buttery. The crab claws is a must and if you love charcuterie board, definitely get the mastery board. As amazing as the food, the service was amazing!
As a New Orleanian, I want to begin with expressing my gratitude to chef Isaac Toups for his work with World Central Kitchen, COVID and hurricane relief, and his family meals. It is one of the reasons we continue to dine at Toups. That and the food is delicious! My husband and I were excited to go last night, sit outside and enjoy the fall weather. We were hopeful that a new fall menu would be released, unfortunately is has not. The menu has not changed since the spring. The summer menu was a no show and there are rarely off menu specials. That being said, the food is always great.
I can’t say the same for service. Everyone has always been pleasant and smiling, lovely people. Even pre-COVID, service was always slow. We knew we couldn’t go to Toups if there was a time crunch or have somewhere to be after dinner. Last night took the cake… I understand that everyone is short staffed these days. We were seated, ordered wine and an app in a timely manner but then 45 minutes passed and our waitress didn’t return to take our entree orders. Wine, apps, and water were delivered by others. Our waitress walked past us at least 10 times but never stopped at the table. After being there an hour, we asked for the check - from a different server - paid and left disappointed. We want to support our local restaurants and loved Toups. Unfortunately, I think it will be some time before we return.
Cool atmosphere, nice bar. Food was delicious and service was good. Double cut pork chop was delicious.
look around you, see all the open tables? How much longer can you expect this or any other restaurant to hold on? Overtip your server, have a pleasant word for additional staff. Let's get through this together.
Door was opened earlier than it should have been. We went inside, but then we’re told to go outside to wait… in the New Orleans heat… with two kids. Food was fine, but not great- same about the cocktails
Wait staff friendly, food tasty. Saints on tv today, a bit of a downer.
tip your servers, be friendly to staff you meet. They're putting long hours to try to make your day a little better, return the favor.
We were warmly welcomes, as always! The staff here, the owners, the ambiance, the overall experience - ALWAYS on point. ALWAYS amazing! The food here, however, is the real star. If you would like a sampling of everything, get the Meatery Board! Also, the cracklins and dirty rice are the best I have ever had in my face! After such a heavy start, I opted for a lump crab salad that was out of this world - complete with pickled quail eggs. Cocktails are delicious and inventive, and their wine list is approachable, with something delicious for everyone!
I'm trying to be supportive of my regular restaurants, in this case, post-Ida Toups.
It is always fun memories of delicious food and bottomless mimosas 🙂🙂
Great experience. They were out of some things due to the hurricane but that was expected. The service from Shawn and Mel was great. Definitely looking forward to going back in a couple weeks we they are fully back up and running.
We couldn't wait to experience Issac's food. Of all the places we dined in NOLA this past week ,Toup's was our least favorite.
The ambiance is that of a dive a Dive Bar with an unpleasant aroma and not so clean.
Men's room dirty, and the hallway and mats leading to. were very dirty.
The website photos and descriptions of the food are a far cry from our experience.
Huge dissapointment for us. Were my expectations too high? I think not.
We had two COOLINARY menus and loved it. The wait and kitchen staff were both fun and helpful, and helped explain what we were eating. Food was served at a great pace. Even though the restaurant is on a busy street, the garden sitting was nice and didn't feel as loud as I thought. Highly recommend!
Amazing restaurant. Great food. Amazing service. Sunday brunch was sooo good
Celebrated my 47 year anniversary. Was looking forward to the pork chop but unfortunately was very disappointed. It had 80% fat & 20 meat.
Don’t let the size fool you. The crispy necks were delicious. The watermelon martini tasted like old juice and filled half of an old fashion martini glass for $12. Pretty much a rip off in my opinion. Our waitress Molly was excellent. Very personable & sweet. I probably will not back.
10/10. Best service and food🤌🏾
wonderful dinner, great people!
The food was incredible! The vegetable plate, shrimp small plate, crab salad, and the greens were amazing. We all shared all the things and were very pleased. One complaint- the waiter was SOOOOO loud and checked in with us entirely too much. We felt rushed and very much could not wait to get out because he was extremely loud and lacked the ability to pick up cues that we wanted to be left alone. But the food was incredible!
Inside voice, PLEASE!
Great local spots with a gourmet menu. They truly have some unique items that cannot be found anywhere else.
We were so looking forward to eating here during our trip to New Orleans. Unfortunately, when we arrived at Toups we received the worst service I’ve ever gotten in my life. After waiting 10 minutes for our waitress to acknowledge us and get our drink order, we then waited another 35 minutes while she completely ignored us and never took our food order. She served all of her other tables except for us (and we were in the middle of her section). Eventually, my husband had to go up to the bar and flag down another waitress so we could close down our tab and find a restaurant that would actually serve us food. Thankfully, Toups decided to waive our bill because of the incredibly poor service we received. As a former waitress myself, I was frankly in awe at the complete lack of competency and our servers failure to do the basic tenets of her job. Wish we had been able to tell people how great the food was, instead we’ll have to save Toup’s Meatery for our restaurant horror stories.
We chose to do the coolinary menu and it was excellent! Great value. I had the corn crab bisque, jumbalaya, and chocolate mousse. Absolutely delicious!
Had the skirt steak with smashed potatoes, excelllent.
Such good food, interesting combos - def want to come back for dinner
We went for the Coolinary brunch. There were good choices for each course. Our server was great and that contributed to our experience. It was fun.
Loved our dinner - had the special of mussels and the BBQ rabbit. Both were delicious. And can never go wrong with the cracklin. Can't wait for our next visit.
Absolutely delicious Coolinary menu. It feels good to support an establishment that took such good care of the community during such a dark time for this city. The flavors were inventive and surprising, the presentation was lovely, and portion sizes were appropriate for lunch. I especially enjoyed the corn & crab bisque and the chocolate mousse. I will definitely be returning very soon.
Outstanding food! Would absolutely recommend to anyone. Isaac Toups is a culinary genius!
Great food and good service. Get the cracklins and crab claws as a starter! You won’t regret it! The pork chops were the bomb. Overall, my boyfriend and I had a great time here.
Always love Toups. Food is great and people are even better. Can't go wrong.
We ordered so 8 dishes. The lump crab salad was so “fresh” and delicious. The cracklin was amazing. The shrimp appetizer was pesto delicious. The turkey necks were falling off the bone tender. The crab claws were a little spicy but the lime on them was outstanding. The lamb was tender. The black eyed peas underneath were cooked in a yummy tomato base. The rillons had good flavor. We didn’t love the boudin balls. They were just ok.
Strange service. Asked for one pour of a whisky, told they don’t have it. Asked for a different one. Told they don’t have it. Asked for a third. Told they don’t have it.
Went to the bar to get change for a $20 and saw all three bottles, at least half way full, sitting on the shelf.
The large plates in particular are astounding!
I didn't know that venison could be that tender and flavorful. And it was perfectly complemented by every other element of the dish. I normally am not a big olive guy. But these had been transformed in a way that elevated the entire dish.
My partner's fish was also absolutely wonderful. But I have less detail, as I had to act fast to sneak even a single bite.
The service was amazing and our server was so attentive and personable! He really made our time just that much better
We came because of the Coolinary menu, but pur meal was really good!
Good location, Reasonable prices, Good food, and Casual atmosphere
Everything that I ate was amazing.
Chicken liver Waugh steak Venison meatballs.
All was the best that it could be.
The triple tail fish was prepared masterfully. Pleasantly surprised to enjoy world class fish at a “meat place.”
Great experience from start to finish.
We could tell that our server was overwhelmed. The communication was poor and we felt rushed. It took awhile for the food to arrive however the food was delicious with the exception of the meatballs. Eventually the bartender and other staff stepped in to help after we had to flag down another waiter to ask for a drink.
In the end the restaurant made it right.
The lamb neck was delicious and I had a prefixed dinner with gulf fish that was amazing.
Don’t let the rustic yet sophisticated appearance fool you - Toup’s Meatery can hold its own against the biggest names in New Orleans fine dining experiences. I’ve always heard great things about it and finally decided to go and take advantage of the Coolinary menu. My mom and I each got the 2-course lunch special. She chose the cold corn and lump crab bisque with a chilled shrimp salad, and I chose the goat barbeque sandwich and chocolate mousse. We shared our meals and were almost tempted not to share because the food was amazing. I enjoyed the cold corn bisque so much that I asked the server if I could take home a quart of it - and he told me yes! So I’m picking it up today and going to enjoy it at home dreaming I could make it as well as the chef.
My favorite part of the meal had to be dessert. The mousse was topped with fresh berries and every bite had layers of flavor - salted caramel and rich chocolate and sharp notes of coffee - that presented themselves in a different order. If I had been given an entire batch of the mousse, I could have devoured it all with no regrets.
The service was perfect. Our server and the bartender took turns checking on all of the tables even while the lunch rush was filling up the restaurant. The server was quick to answer any questions, made recommendations that did not fail to impress, and our glasses were topped off as needed. Though the atmosphere is not as formal as other restaurants in New Orleans, the service was on this same level. I will most definitely be back.
