Excellent traditional New Orleans Cuisine !!! I´ve been in Broussard´s, Arnaud's and Tujague's the same weekend and I can tell that this is the most authentic one. The others are superb but more classy.

I ate here in 1980 for the first time. At that time it was a reasonable price for a five course fixed dinner. It was amazing. Now the bread is cold, right out of some plastic bag, the menu is all ala carte unless you want to add $32 to then already overpriced entrees and the actual entrees are just okay. I live in New Orleans and have tasted how this restaurant has gone down over the
years. I would not recommend this to anyone.

Happy to see the restaurant was crowded. Stood at the old, historic bar. Our reservation had to be delayed since the parties, who had dined earlier, were not leaving.

When our table was ready, the Maître ‘d offered us a complimentary bottle of wine.

We had Louis as our server. We have had him every time that we have gone to Tujaques. He is very efficient, nice fellow. As we would finish one course the next course was on its way.

The food was excellent. Two of us had the incredibly thick pork chop that was scrumptious. The third party had the apricot duck. Best duck he had ever eaten.

We were very happy with the selection.

This place has unfortunately slipped since I was last there in 2016. Food service was quick yes, but the crab gnocchi was overcooked and lacked the sophisticated flavors I remember.

A little expensive, but it was a nice place. Food portions are small, but fit for a 5 course meal. If you are hungry, you have to do more than one course.

We had the fish special which was supposed to have brabant potatoes. It was mashed potatoes, not brabant, and this should have been stated upfront. Second, our fish was overdone, charred and dried out to thr point you had to use a knife to cut it. We did not mention th potatoes but we certainly did point out the overdone, charred, dried fish to our waiter. He said sorry about that and walked off. He did not offer to have it re-done, replaced nor did he get the Head of House to cone speak to us— you know, the commonplace thing all other restaurants do. It’s ashame the waiter was dismissive and moreso that both he and the chef let those dishes hit a table.

We were at Tujaques for Easter with our family and the preset menu had something for everyone. We were upstairs and that was good for our group, because it was quiet. The Crawfish & Goat cheese crepes are wonderful and the Trout was off of their regular menu and was a large portion. After having all of the Bread Pudding that is served in New Orleans, I have to say theirs is one of the best!

First time dining hear and thouroughly enjoyed the experience. The only thing my dad had to complain about was the noise. Seating is tight and everything echoes. You have to speak louder than normal cause so many conversations are taking place at the same time. Historical and the people who work there tke pride in that. French bread was delicious and warm. The bread pudding wasn't the best. The strawberry salad, shrimp and grits and grilled fish were all YUM.

No bread brought until we asked, rum and tonic had no fizz and I had to ask again for the lemon zest and lime I requested when I ordered it. The Sancerre was not chilled enough. The Midi salad was actually very good but the trout amandine was just terrible! The green beans were a little undercooked, were dry and had little flavor. My date's filet mignon was tender enough but had little flavor. I complained and they were nice enough to comp the entrées. I overheard out server making apologies at other tables BTW. I had never been to Tujagues in all the 50 plus years I've been coming to NO to dine. It wasn't worth the trouble! On the bright side, it made our other meals at Café Degas and K-paul seem even better by comparison! Maybe they were just having a bad night, maybe they had been hexed, who knows! It was astonishing that a restaurant that has been in business so long could be such a disappointment.

One of the salads were unavailable, because they did not have avacadoes. Very poor excuse, avacadoes are available all the time.

The waiter hit Susan in the head with a dish. Veal was tough. Fruit flies were in Richard's drink and a side dish.

We feel Tujaque's is relying only on their good name, doing nothing to improve and keep up with much better values in the French Quarter. Sad.

Wine and drinks were good.

My husband and I had eaten here 40 years ago on our honeymoon and loved it. So we finally figured out the name of the place via the grandson of thee original owner I had the pleasure of meeting a few years ago. So I was determined that to return for our anniversary this year 40 years later! While it now has a menu unlike before when we were there, the food, service and atmosphere was the same top notch it was all those years ago! I would highly recommend this restaurant as one of the best in NOLA.

The grits were undercooked and just short of crunchy. Other than that it was just an average meal for the area.

Our meal was disappointing. My husband raved about this place from a previous visit. The highly recommended roasted chicken (bon fin) was dry and shrimp risotto was underwhelming. The steak was fine but unremarkable. It was St. Patrick’s Day so it’s possible that the regular kitchen staff was not there— and the floors were very slippery (from the humidity?) This is such a nostalgic place. We hope it was a fluke.

The brisket is amazing and is the only thing worth going here for. Don't plan on making a special night out trip here. Desserts were not even chain-restaurant good. Service was just okay and atomosphere was sparse. Overall I wouldn't recommend it unless you have a particular craving for brisket.

We booked for our Anniversary. The drinks were overpriced and awful. Was by far the worst meal for the amount that we paid in Nola. We were put a a tiny table just outside the waiter door. Would not recommend. Certainly not the way we wanted to spend our 47th Anniversary.

The waiter was stressed, dealing with some sort of problem with another table in the restaurant so he was less than attentive. The food was warm but not hot because of delays. here was a long delay in getting to dessert and coffee. Probably not the waiter's fault but nobody stepped up to help him. The shrimp and grits was very tasty and would have been 5-star if it had been more than just warm.
