    Sat on the sidewalk patio. Amazing service. They can't light the bananas foster outside, so out waiter brought his cart around to the window behind us so we could watch!

    Went 9 guys for a bachelor party for a nice dinner on our first night in NOLA. There were no complaints about anything. The service was attentive, the place is beautiful and the food was amazing.

    Dickie Brennan's Palace Cafe is a great place to enjoy lunch on Canal Street. Stop in early afternoon for a sidewalk table and have Shrimp Tchefuncte for a soul-satisfying lunch and a sazerac. Enjoy. Read more

    Crabmeat cheese cake and BBQ shrimps are just sssoooooo good. You NEED to try it! Andouille cristal Fish totally rocks as well.

    You can't go wrong with the fish dishes, especially the andouille-crusted fish or pecan-crusted catfish! Also great NOLA classic desserts: bread pudding and bananas foster.

    The only thing more amazing than the food was the service! Shawnette and Eugene did a fantastic job. We even got a history lesson while Shawnette prepared the Bananas Foster.

    Try the Crab Benedict: crab cakes, poached eggs, an English muffin and Gladstone's secret Cajun sauce. Served with fresh fruit & hash brown. - YUMMY!

    I got the wicked delicious drink, I wouldn't recommend it - the cinnamon was overwhelming, crab claws app was unremarkable, but the pecan catfish was great, plus the bananas foster for dessert

    Kim is the best bananas foster flambé person ever - you have to order it. Comes with homemade vanilla bean ice cream.

    Ask for Suzanne, she's great! Lovely presentation for the whole meal. Great food: We tried the lamb and garlic gumbo and the Brie and apple salad.

    This place is classy and food was amazing. Don't let the crab cake cheesecake name fool you. It's AMAZING. Not actually a "cheesecake" just looks like one.

    Late lunch - delish! BBQ shrimp was good but couldn't bring myself to suck the head like a local! The shrimp "t-funk" (as they refer to it in the kitchen) was delicious!
  • Ginger P.
    For Lunch the Crab Quiche' was excellent. Rory at the bar was great to help get our to go order ready. The Palace Punch nice is a refreshing drink. Enjoyed it.

    For brunch do not sleep on the Cafe Benedict. Also, save room for dessert and go with the Cheesecake made with fresh seasonal fruit and Cajun cream cheese!

    Really lovely servers and i heard they had a great brunch. Unfortunately they only serve it on Sundays and their breakfast menu is ridiculously sparse.

    The bananas foster prepared in flames at your table can be shared by two. The show is well worth the reasonable price.

    Chicken/sausage Gumbo & spinach salad were great. The salad is not very big tho, so no sharing. You'll be glad you got your own tho. Good prices too...

    Drop in just for dessert and sit at the dessert bar. You can watch the chef make all the desserts that are being ordered as well as the rest of the dishes.

    They didn't had any vegetarian soup available. Without asking us,Jeremy our waiter, called the chef wish he came and prepared us the best vegetarian soup. What a service!!!! .

    Palace Cafe offers a "Temperature Lunch" on weekdays during the summer. It's a two course special menu priced at yesterday's high (i.e. if it was 95 degrees on Tuesday, Wednesday's lunch is $9.50).

    Enjoyed everything, except, one of the servers (Keyshawn?) needs a little more training in extending good customer service.

    Palace Cafe has the best sweet potatoes in New Orleans. Fun place when it is warm to sit on the street and watch the people. Right on Canal Street, it is a great New Orleans venue.

    If you are a small dining party, decline the table and go for kitchen-side bar dining.

    Not too impressed. The crab meat cheesecake didn't meet expectations and the bread pudding was a complete flop. The banana foster was pretty yummy. Pork shank was massive and decent.

    Order the seafood gumbo - but not if you're hungry; it just opens your appetite for more of N'awlins' good stuff!

    It says five for five. It's five DOLLARS for FIVE DIFFERENT ITEMS. So you're spending at least $25. WOW. I enjoy shopping divey places for a reason.
