Tujague's - New Orleans Ratings and Reviews
I have travelled on business to New Orleans dozens of times over the past 25 years, but had never eaten at the “second oldest restaurant in New Orleans”. What a treat ! It is in a “quieter” part of the French Quarter near historic Jackson Square. The place just oozes old world charm when you enter through the “stand up bar” (no stools here). We had a group of 12 frequent travelers, so they seated us in a dining room that had one other group. The waitstaff was extremely attentive , so your drink was rarely ever more than half empty. 5 of us had the Pompano, which was terrific. Also, there was 1 very large pork chop , 2 filets, 1 ribeye, 1 brisket & 1 shrimp & grits - all enjoyed ! The turtle soup was also terrific (be prepared - it is large bowl). And, you have to go with the chocolate tort for dessert!
The restaurant is a lovely setting. We had dinner upstairs. The stairs were a bit hard to climb and descend. The food was good, smaller portions , considering the price, and not memorable. The waiter was very efficient but not engaging. He did his job and moved on to the next client. We are frequent New Orleans visitors and Tujague’s will probably not be a repeated stop.
Out last night in NOLA - Tujague's (too-jays) was deep in the French Quarter. It is a taste of true New Orleans/French atmosphere. The food was all tremendous - every bite!! However, the small dining room was very crowded and extremely loud and noisy - impossible to have a conversation without shouting. But the food was worth it. Just don't expect a quick, quiet bite here!
We were there for lunch. Service was quick and attentive. Food was wonderful. Get the $18.58 lunch special. I chose the roast beef which was cut with a fork tender. The sauce was amazing. She had a sea food salad that waslike the gulf on a giant plate with shrimp, crab and more. The decor is what you would expect from a 150 year old place. Mirrors on each wall to make the narrow space appear larger and hundreds of small bottles in cases on the walls. The bar was a friendly neighborhood place, very comfortable
Our server was absolutely the best and attentive. He suggested moving us to a larger table so that we could spread out - great idea!. Loved the chicken bon femme, oyster wedge salad, and brisket. Only disappointment was the shrimp romelaude - too much paprika. Love Chef Guy.
Given table with cold draft on 2nd story. Climb is difficult. Waiter was MIA for first 15 minutes. Hostess had to take drink/appetizer order. Fried green tomatoes were good. Turtle soup was room temperature, but tasty. Trout and BBQ shrimp were tasty. Noise level high in room. Add to that...Halloween street festivities.
Decent decor. Very loud. Wait staff were friendly and good, but our waiter looked apologetic and when the food came we realized why. Reasonably priced, but not for the low quality of food. Obviously pre-prepared salad (blackening avocado, mushy tomato) and very basic tasteless main courses. Guess we should have known having never heard of it and it being located where it was, but no bad reviews that we could find. Hopefully this helps the next diners make a more informed decision.
Always great! One of my main go to spots! This particular time we had gnocchi with lumped crab meat appetizer, bottle of wine, dinner was shrimp ans grits and veal oscar. Food was stellar, dinner bill came in around $120 total, very economical and one of the best meals in town! If you havent gone, you must go!
This little gem is in the heart of the French Quarter. It is in a bustling area that gives you exactly what you expect when visiting this diverse exotic crazy city! You just gotta love it. The food is sooo delicious! So many flavors to savor. It is a little loud but it’s actually exciting to be part of the dining group as they enjoy the experience. Our waiter was attentive and seemed genuinely interested in our needs and if we enjoyed our food. French Quarter delight.
I had the fried green tomatoes for an app. Delicious! Then the shrimp and grits for dinner. Food came out quickly; we wanted a little more leisurely dining experience. My boyfriends rib eye was not good, but not sure that is a specialty in NOLA. Flourless chocolate cake was to die for, and it was a great location.
We had the five course meal and were not disappointed. Our waiter was excellent and helped us decide on an entree. It got a bit noisy when the tables started filling up but considering how small the dining area is, it was expected. We loved the history behind the bar and was glad we could help celebrate their 160 th year.
We had a large group of 16. When our group goes to NOLA we've gone to Tujaques before and enjoyed it. The appetizers were good for the most part. The beef brisket was great as always. The other entrees were not very good. The BBQ shrimp and grits were bland and cold. The mushroom gnocchi wasn't good either. We were really disappointed. I can understand it's difficult to get all the meals out still hot, but they shouldn't be bland and tasteless.
