Galatoire's Restaurant

The grand dame of New Orleans' old-line restaurants, Galatoire’s has remained committed to culinary excellence for more than a century. Under the guidance of the fourth generation of family ownership, it is her time-honored customs that still bind this renowned restaurant. Above all others, her rich tradition of serving authentic French Creole cuisine at a level that raises consistency to an art form. It is often said that the beauty of Galatoire’s is that things never change. Even after 100 years, ageless New Orleans favorites grace her menu just as they did in 1905.

"We come for our special lunch every year when we are in town for Jazzfest. Service is excellent and always makes us feel welcome. Great place to see
locals. They have great lunch specials on Tues-Thurs. On this visit there was a 50th birthday party going on with about 40
people and yet we got the same personal attention and our meal came promptly. If you are okay with alcohol, order a French 75. They make the best one I've ever had.

"Many online reviews recommended this expensive, jackets-only dinner spot in New Orleans, right in the center of rowdy Bourbon Street. We hastily made a reservation, hearing that the restaurant fills up.
Yet, our appetizer was lukewarm (with sections that were blatantly cold) - it was some sort of crab dish that the waitress recommended. Then, we had bouillabaisse and another crab-based meal. Both were flavorless (almost unseasoned), and not prepared in an elegant or tasteful way.
Overall, our dinner was $130 and based off taste, I would consider it closer to a $40 meal.
Really disappointed, unnecessarily expensive - generally a waste of money."

"Okay, you know the place has a history, but is it living on its laurels? ABSOLUTELY NOT! This place is everything you could want in a New Orleans restaurant.
Had a wonderful dinner at Galatoire's and was totally blown away by the old New Orleans vibe and the wonderful food. Terrific appetizers and main courses, but the side dishes were the absolute delights of the evening: the Potatoes Brabant were completely addictive and the spinach was a total revelation.
The whole experience was a delight!"

"My Husband and I decided to go to Galatois on Bourbon St. in the French Quarter last Sunday because we felt that while living here we should try all of the very top places to eat. Usually we end up having a really nice if not great meal, unfortunately this was not what happened.
First, I had read online that if you make a reservation you will be seated upstairs, I was really looking foward to this, getting us away from the drunken Bourbon St. crowd etc.. but we were led to an unset table with a half empty vase on it in the corner right up against the window, a bus boy dropped off water, and silverware, but no bread plates . When the waiter came over with no wine list, and when I asked said that they don't make any specialty drinks, I began to believe this as I had to send back my Stoli and club soda because it tasted funny. When we asked for bread plates he told us to just go ahead and make a mess.
That is just the start of our long and disappointing dinner at Galatois.
While the service was bad, I would say that the food was ok, we ordered the souffle' potatoes and the Canape' Lorenzo for appetizers. The potatoes were exactly like the potatoes at Antoine's, and the Crab Canape' was so heavy I could only eat a few bites I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to eat my dinner. For dinner we ordered the Crabmeat Ravigote, and the Shrimp Clemenceaux. Neither one of us ate more than a quarter of our entre's, they were ok, but not even good enough to take home with us. So to sum up the evening it was, terrible ambiance, lousy service and ok food, all for a bill well over $120 for two, with no wine or desert. Oh well, it wasn't the first of the top places to eat to let us down, I just hope that we get a few good ones in before it happens again.

"Had the shrimp remoulade and black drum. Both were great. Banana infused bread pudding was a perfect ending."

"Utterly unworthy of the hype, everything about the experience told of a restaurant happy to dial it in and rest on its reputation. If you go expecting wonderful old-school service, you'll be sorely disappointed: plates were dumped on the table, waiters didn't make eye-contact, the experience more akin to fast food than a serious restaurant. So-so food at 5* prices, the venerable institutions of New Orleans need to get their act together and stop taking tourists for schmucks."

"Made Friday lunch reservations which is only for upstairs. Downstairs is first come first served but it always seems to be full on Fridays. Food and service was excellent. It was a little noisy but I would highly recommend it."

"Galatoire's is a "must" whenever we visit New Orleans. The classic, jacket-required elegance is second to none. While reservations are strongly recommended, the reserved tables are upstairs while the old-school downstairs dining room is on a seating-available basis. Sit downstairs if you can, even though it's louder, for a true French Quarter experience. This is where the locals go for an elegant, upscale dining experience and it has never disappointed. Prices, including for wine, are remarkably reasonable."

"Our waiter was not the best. He did not realize that it is impossible to have real French Champagne for $8. a glass. As soon as the appetizers were cleared, the main course was served without the vegetable. A reminder brought quite undercooked cauliflower gratin after half the entrée was eaten. We had looked forward to returning after 49 years!"
