Flaming Torch Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
With very few restaurants open on Christ ...
With very few restaurants open on Christmas Day we made reservations at the Flaming Torch. This is a delightful French restaurant with authentic French food and ambience. The service was adequate despite the fact that our waiter was covering a lot of tables single-handedly. Both our duck and fish were carefully prepared and delicious. The ambience upstairs (where we ate) was perfect for a romantic evening. Good value, too. Note: the restaurant is a good 15 minutes drive from the center of NO, in a quiet neighborhood, so it's not like you can walk from Bourbon Street. I would definitely go back.

We had the ABSOLUTE best french onion soup ever! Better than anywhere we had in France. The rest of our meals were fabulous as well......I think we all ordered something different. The owner herself took the time to recognize my 60th birthday and make the evening special! She and her family are lovely! We will definitely be back again.....a hidden gem off Magazine St.

The duck breast and lamb chops were ok, but average. I did not think it was up to the the ratings I had heard. One odd thing, the waiter asked how we wanted the duck breast cooked: rare, etc. Have never heard that questions when ordering fowl.

The chef was apparently off that night and the owner cooked. The food was inedible. Our waiter was new and not trained. Our waiter informed the owner about our complaints but she did not ever come to our table although she did spend most of the night talking to the only other occupied table in the restaurant. After wasting $345 we went down the street and ate a proper dinner with much better food from an award winning chef and at a lesser price. I see no reason to ever go back when there are much better restaurants nearby!

The Flaming Torch is one of our favorite restaurants. As Francophile food lovers, we feel gratified when we dine here. The plates are beautiful, the cuisine authentically French, the service attentive. The selection at the bar is limited, and occasionally menu items aren't available.

Beautiful place uptown! The crab avocado salad provides great portion size for the price, but more importantly, it taste amazing. The White chocolate bread pudding was a great way to end our lunch. Will be back next week for dinner!

Apparently they put up the persian menu this week, so I decided to try it out The Persian trio appetizer is amazing! I hope they put the Roasted eggplant as its own appetizer instead of part of the trio because that was my favorite. The chicken kabob was great, and it complemented well with the pita bread. Great idea for the restaurant to add another cultural taste. Will be back!

Amazing Lunch! We actually were here to try the french onion soup, but they mentioned about the persian food they just added, so I decided to give it a go. They had one persian appetizer in the menu, but it consisted of variety of small dishes such as roasted eggplant , salad, and yogurt. It was absolutely delicious. I actually skipped the french onion soup, and went for the Coq Au Vin entree from the regular menu, and that was a great way to end my lunch. I like the options they have now whether you want to have french style meal or a persian meal. Great service and a very beautiful atmosphere! I will definitely return with some co workers of mine.

I came here to try the Persian menu they just added this week. My friend ordered the chicken kabab and enjoyed it, but we love the Persian appetizer. The roasted Eggplant with the roasted garlic was phenomenal. It also had the yogurt seasoning and a salad with dice tomatoes, cucumbers and onions. The presentation was very nice. We will be back, but this time I will try the Kabob!

What really stood out to me was not just the amazing quality food they served ( French Onion and Mussels) but the ambience. The place displays strong elegance and beauty. The artworks painted by the owner are beautiful! I will definitely bring my artistic friend to this place later this week. Great neighborhood restaurant!!

The restaurant was completely empty. The A/C was out on the first floor, but the seating on the 2nd floor was nice. The French onion soup was great, the duck was tender and delicious, but they were out of scallops which is what I would've chosen.

The waiter was amazing. Some of my party was a little late and he was so kind in holding our spot. The staff made special accommodations for the children in our party. Food was delicious and the atmosphere was Devine. Definitely recommend and will dine again soon.

For the quality of the food the prices are too high. We ordered the crab cakes as an appetizer and for the price I'd expect had formed cakes with jumbo lump crabmeat. The flavor was fair at best but the patties looked like something that came out of a frozen box, with shredded crabmeat and seasonings. Steaks were also fair at best but not priced like it.

The service was very good, and the kitchen was very accommodating. The food was well prepared and was served promptly. We ordered the french onion soup- perfect!; the potato leek soup, also very good; the nightly fish special which was roasted salmon with a mango salsa, very delicious, perfectly seasoned and the salsa was light and fresh and an excellent compliment; and the rack of lamb, the lamb was good, but could've been more flavorful, although it was very well prepared, and tender. The wine list is small, and only a few beers are available. It was an enjoyable experience, but a bit over priced all things considered.

We were a party of four for Sunday brunch. The service was friendly and helpful, although the wait person seemed to have to go to the kitchen for information about the menu. The selections were excellent, and the chef was receptive to requests. The preparation for the liver was outstanding. We left wondering why we had not been back to this lovely place more often.

Very beautiful uptown restaurant! Although the weather is hot, the French onion soup is a must have and the mussels were so tasty. We ordered the grilled salmon with crab mango salsa, and that was by far the best entree I've had in a while. Great service as well as ambience. We will be back!!!
Lovely French Cuisine
Heard about this restaurant from a friend and couldn't believe we had never been. The owner was on site and just lovely. Everything we ordered was delicious but I only gave 4 stars as the duck was undercooked even for medium rare and the frois gras though tasty, not the traditional type one would expect. I would return to try some other items on the menu that caught my eye.

Amazing experience with my fiancée at The Flaming Torch. Their scallop appetizers were so good and the New York strip steak was cooked to perfection. Our server was very attentive and had a great personality. We will be back!!
