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.

"The first thing that comes to mind at Galatoire's is that it's a throwback to the 40's and 50's with small tables crammed together and servers darting back and forth in their tuxedos. The restaurant is brightly lit which is so nice compared to the mainly dimly restaurants that I'm used to visiting. After being seated the second thing that came to mind was SERVICE. The entire staff and especially our server were fantastic - super attentive, full of great suggestions and ready to remedy the situation if we were unhappy with something we ordered. We never had an issue getting a drink refill or our server's attention. Cocktails were super strong with our favorite being the Sazerac. Both the seafood and duck gumbos were excellent - rich, hot and hearty, made with a super dark roux. The broiled pompano w/shrimp was cooked perfectly, light and flaky while the sauteed drum with crawfish etoufee was spicy and piquant. Sides were excellent also with the potatoes au gratin being the most flavorful. Pecan pie made a simple yet delicious dessert. Excellent!!"

"The chicken was phenomenal however that was about the only good thing. Firstly they were all out of crab and crab makes up about half of their menu so the selection was limited. It was a lot louder than I expected. I would not consider it a romantic restaurant. The chairs are very uncomfortable. It got to the point where I couldn't wait for my check so I could get up and walk around. I will definitely consider this an experience that I tried but will opt for another restaurant next time."

"We made reservations at Galatoire's for Friday lunch, and we had great expectations since it's one of the best-known restaurants in New Orleans. Unfortunately, our experience was a huge disappointment. After being seated, we were not greeted or brought a menu for 20 minutes. Someone only came by after we asked for assistance. When we were finally given the opportunity to order, our food that was delivered was not what we asked for. Our waitress never came back by to even check that everything was okay. We finally just asked for the check to pay and leave, and we were astonished with how expensive such a small order cost. No one greeted us as we were exiting. Overall, this restaurant was all hype and we strongly recommend that you enjoy any of the other more enjoyable establishments; Galatoire's is simply not worth your time or money."

"Atmosphere is just too . . . bright. The gorgeous floor, ceiling and lovely mirrored wall is totally washed out by the crazy white cafeteria bright lighting.
We sat for 10-15 minutes before anyone came to take a drink order. Our waiter just seemed to be going through the motions, and the food was adequate - as if churned out by the kitchen.
Perhaps we should have stayed with our 2nd floor reservation, but we were taken by hype about the first floor.

"Nothing short of excellent! Not your usual tourist restaurant. The food was outstanding and the service even better. Most diners were locals. I can't wait to go back."

"We chose to eat at Galatoire's because it was listed in the "1000 Places to See Before You Die" book. Our edition of the book is old and thing's must have changed, because the food was below average. I had a main course of Shrimp Etouffee. It was bland when I expected a lot of flavor. My wife had fried shrimp, which were 1/2 batter. My soup was also bland and my wife's shrimp did not taste fresh."

"Asked for reservations upstairs, were seated downstairs, maybe they don't read requests from Open Table. It is noisy downstairs, not the best environ for an intimate dinner.
When seated, our waitress advised lump crabmeat would be substituted with Crayfish. What? Mudbugs for crabmeat???? Same price?!
Appetizer Oyster Rockefeller ... excellent
Wedge salad... so what happened to the Blue Cheese in the dressing?
7 oz Beef filet... cooked to perfection, but a bit stringy. Next time will go to Ruth Chris, they only serve the best beef.
Stuffed eggplant...wife said it was excellent, but see crayfish/crabmeat comment above.
Service, nice lady, attentive to a point...she brought the desert menu, disappeared for 10 minutes, then brought the check, never asked if we wanted desert...$168 + $30 tip.
Been to Galatoire's many times in the past, expensive, but it has been worth the price....this time, not so much."
