Bon Ton Café Review

The Bon Ton's opening in 1953 marked the first appearance of a significant Cajun restaurant in New Orleans, and the now-famed crawfish dishes, gumbo, jambalaya, and oyster omelet continue to draw fans. The bustle in the dining room peaks at lunchtime on weekdays, when businesspeople from nearby offices come in droves for turtle soup, eggplant with a shrimp and crab étouffée, and the warm, sugary bread pudding. If you can sacrifice the afternoon for pleasure, try a Rum Ramsey cocktail. The veteran servers are knowledgeable and fleet-footed.

    Excellent Dining Experience!

    We dined at Bon Ton Friday 1/25/07 with a party of 7 and all were very impressed with the quality of both food and service. Everyone at the table had different soups and entrees, and we all were very pleased. My wife had the Crab Imperial/Crab au Gratin combination and I the soft shell crab, both EXCELLENT. The gumbo and bisque were terrific. Another person in our party thought his steak was the best he had ever tasted. And how could anyone pass up the bread pudding with whiskey sauce. Great! I'd go back in a heartbeat.

    Lovely Place for Dining in NOLA!

    Bon Ton Cafe's hospitality afforded a gracious dining experience for us on 01/31/2008. The excellent but unpretentious Cajun food and friendly wait staff were superb! We would highly recommend this restaurant. Debbie's salad is top notch. Save room for the Bread Pudding with Whisky Sauce.

    Authentic New Orleans

    Bon Ton is the real deal. This is where the locals get fed. Don't show up in your black socks and sandals.
