Cockroaches everywhere. While dining, Cockroaches were running wild in the restaurant.
Food was low quality and over seasoned.
I was embarrassed by inviting my guests to my daughter’s graduation dinner.

This place came highly recommended to us. But we found both of our dishes not meeting our expectations... paid 100+ USD for 2 dishes, an appetizer and a drink. Not happy w the value for money...

What a fabulous historic place to have a memorable meal. We were recommended by one of the places selling tours and they gave us a free wine coupon. The service was wonderful and the noise level was quiet enough to have a meal without screaming at each other. The charbroiled oysters were disappointing but the trout was wonderful. My husband had the garlicy boiled beef and it was so tender he did not need a knife. I would recommend this place to anyone.

What a total disappointment. The waiter was rude and rushed us through the entire meal as if to say we need you to hurry up so we can turn this table. We were not given a moment to enjoy our pre dinner cocktail before he came back for our complete dinner order. The crawfish crepe was the only edible item in the whole meal. We shared a fried oyster wedge salad. The salad consisted of a 1/4” thick slice of iceberg lettuce covered with cream dressing served on a hot plate. Very disappointing. Before we even finished that, our meal arrived. The duck looked like it had been under the heat lamp for an hour covered in some kind of tomato based sauce. So tough you couldn’t even cut it. My husband’s brisket looked and tasted like dried out pot roast served with ketchup horseradish sauce. It also inedible. Never saw the waiter. We refilled our own wine glass. Bread was microwaved and tough. Not what I expected from all the reviews. Will not return nor will I recommend.

We did the 5 course meal. Their red remoulade is amazing - it was used as a salad dressing and as the dipping sauce for their boiled brisket. Speaking of which, I've never heard of boiled brisket but it was amazing - next time, I'm ordering it as my main.

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.
