    In institution in Nola. Order the Soup 1-1-1. You'll never get better soup than here. Dress appropriately too or you'll feel out of place.

    Jazz brunch on Sunday with people dressing up in fine clothes for the occasion.
  • Linda M.
    Very traditional upper-class Southern venue with dress code & many awards. Carefully prepared dishes. Weekend jazz brunch with a 3-course prix fixe around $42 is a good intro. Need reservation.

    Not worth it... We wanted to go for a cocktail and dessert and they wouldn't let us in until 6pm even though every single table was available .. Really for a slice of pre made cake ??

    Beautiful restaurant with a lot of charm, very friendly attentive staff. EVERYTHING IS GOOD here. Loved the eggs Benedict, and the soufflé, great seafood dishes 😄

    Go during restaurant week during the first week in August and it's super cheap. 25 cent martinis at lunch (can't confirm dinner).

    If you are skeptical about turtle soup, this is the right place to order it. You won't regret it!

    Our highlights include the Winter harvest salad; cheese plate, pecan gulf fish and strawberry short cake. The complimentary bread is great. Reservations are a must

    If you can, do lunch. The 25-cent martinis are 👌👌.

    This place is steeped in history, hospitality, and perfectly finessed cooking. A really great treat for when you're ready to spend on a fancy dinner (you're expected to dress up for it).

    Go with someone awesome. The turtle soup is amazing. Have a wonder in the old cemetery across the road afterwards.

    This place is over-rated and over-priced! Waiter was loud and condescending, made us feel rushed, interrupted conversation. NEVER AGAIN!

    Skip - stuffy atmosphere, food isn't good, their famous turtle soup is overrated

    25¢ martini lunch is excellent, with amazing food and service. The gumbo and turtle soup were all table favorites and the risotto was delicious.

    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.

    Jazz brunch is amazing!
  • 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.

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