    Turtle soup, chefs specials, and desserts. It was a veritable cornucopia of sensations!

    Eduardo O. · July 12
  • Brandi B.

    Splurge on the chefs tasting menu and wine pairing. Worth every dime

    Brandi Bruce · July 2
  • Antonello L.

    Their soufflé, gumbo and seafood are definitely worth the short ride from the French Quarter. Better reserve ahead of time. If price is an issue, try it for lunch.

    Antonello Loddo · June 29
  • Alison P.

    Jazz brunch is amazing!

    Alison Pruett · June 16
  • Ben K.

    Might be a tourist trap but the food is delicious. Get the turtle soup and any creole entree. Bananas foster and chicory coffee for dessert. Head through the kitchen to check out the garden out back.

  • Brandi B.

    Amazing... The chef taste menu is absolutely delicious. Add the wine pairing for the most memorable meal of your life

  • Amanda S.

    Excellent service. Eating here was an experience. Go for lunch but adhere to the dress code. 25 cent martinis were a hit!

    An amazing, classic southern dining experience. The service is impeccable and that bread pudding soufflé is killer! And don't miss the $.025 martinis!

    Sara T. · May 14
  • Josh B.

    Don't just get seduced by the cheap martinis. They have a great wine list!

    Josh Berkowitz · May 14
  • Kelly W.

    Get the turtle soup and bread pudding soufflé!!!

    Kelly Wong · May 2
  • Lorenzo L.

    Disappointing on all levels. Service was rushed and unfriendly. Food not at a level I expect from a restaurant of such pedigree. When you ask your guests to dress for elegance, you should deliver it.

  • Cathy Z.

    Their bread pudding soufflé will ruin you for any other dessert forever

    Delicious, try the pecan crusted fish and the turtle soup! For dessert, the pecan pie is fan-freaking-tastic.

    Surprisingly good food ($.25 martinis, turtle soup, gumbo, Oyster Gratinée, Creole Cochon de Lait “Cassoulet,” duckfat potatoes), but go to Galatoire's for atmosphere
