Antoine's Review

Though some people believe Antoine's heyday passed before the turn of the 20th century, others wouldn't leave New Orleans without at least one order of the original oysters Rockefeller—baked oysters topped with a parsley-based sauce and bread crumbs. Other notables on the bilingual menu include pommes de terre soufflées (fried potato puffs), pompano en papillote (baked in parchment paper), and baked Alaska. Tourists are generally shown to the front room, but walking through the grand labyrinth is a must. Be prepared for lackluster service. A jacket is preferred, but casually dressed diners can order most of the classic menu at the adjoining Hermes Bar.

    waiter ruined all

    we had the most arrogant waiter ever who told us not to eat the bread basket in which the fries were delivered. the food is ok but having to put up with major attitude from waiter was too much to bear. first and last time. if you are a tourist, you will be treated like a tourist and it is made quite clear that they could care less if you ever come back. not nice, no manners.

    A beautiful experience

    Beginning with a warm greeting from the manager, Andy, at the door, sustained by professional and attentive service by Jaime and his associates at the table, warmed and nurtured by an excellent Trout Ponchartrain with asparagus hollandaise, washed by a memorable Pinot Grigio (#601) and polished off with Bananas Foster -- a truly beautiful experience. The grand old house of culinary arts and excellent hospitality is back!!

    It's Special!

    Antoine's is not like a chain restaurant that you can find anywhere in the U.S., it's an institution. When we went there for the first time recently, we received excellent service, eat a delicious meal, and enjoyed a very unique restaurant. Afterward, we had a fun time exploring the place and looking at the family museum displays on the walls. Yes it is expensive, but we feel that got our money's worth. (They let us split a meal!)

    Historical Dinner

    This was my first trip to Antoine's. The restaurant is like a museum loaded with history and perhaps as many as 15 dining rooms. It was a wonderful experience to dine there. The food however was pricey and fair tasting. The Oysters Rockefeller was doughy and boring. The Alligator Soup was excellent and more like a thin chili. The grilled pompano and crabmeat was a large serving and tasty. As a nice touch we were given the menu as a souvenir. A jacket was not required for my dinner on a Saturday night.
