Herbsaint Ratings and Reviews
I highly recommend Herbsaint. I have eaten at two other of Link's restaurant and I think this is the best one (loved the other two also but this one was above the grade). Menu items were wonderful and the staff so friendly and helpful. Can not speak highly enough of this restaurant.
We liked Herbsaint but the menu can be challenging. I was hoping for some better seafood options (we had dined at Peche the night before and loved the seafood). The fish of the day was not highly recommended by the waiter so I got the shrimp small plate which I did not like at all. I do not like cucumbers with fish.
The rest of the diners in our party were happy but some felt as if they had to struggle to find something on the menu that wasn't so eclectic.
Desserts were wonderful Great wine selection, great ambiance and professional wait staff.
I just wish I could get a grilled piece of fish or shrimp!
Went with my wife while in town on vacation on the recommendation of a foodie friend. Service was great, drinks were great - had a couple specialty cocktails
Appetizers were great- had the Sicilian Beef with Anchovies and a seared Calamari on Black Rice (calamari dish was awesome)
Main courses were just good, not great. I had the Crispy Goat and my wife had the Cobia special. The goat was the better of the two, but both underwhelmed us a little bit. I still recommend the restaurant, overall meal was really good, but I'll leave some time before returning to Herbsaint if it's up to me - too many fantastic options in town.
We dined at Herbsaint to celebrate a special birthday with family. Our food and service were wonderful. This is definitely one of the best meals (and experiences) that we had in New Orleans. I loved the innovative, seasonal menu (don't be afraid of the Crispy Goat!) The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, willing to answer questions and make recommendations. Make sure you save room for the wonderful desserts. We will definitely be back.
Hello Fellow Foodies and Wine Connoisseurs ! We all have our Favorite New Orleans spot but I must give a shout out to Herbsaint. This James Beard award winning restaurant with Chef de cuisine Rebecca Wilcomb won our heart this weekend. The food is special. Fisherman and farm to table French-Southern with an impressive wine list. Loud inside so sit outside! Must try: Housemade spaghetti with Guanciale and Fried-Poached Farm egg
Great drinks, kind service, and good food! We had a great dinner with the exception of being placed at a table underneath a dripping vent. We requested to be moved and were moved to the front of the house to a small table that was uneven, crowded, and very very loud. While we enjoyed our food and drink we could have been seated at a better table with a reservation made in advance.
The Asiago cheese small plate, lamb mushroom lasagne, and fried peach pie were the standout dishes.
Innovative, Gumbo and short ribs were very good, the side of Fideo took it over the top.
The goat was a little too dry, The Gnocchi almost all potato. French fries on the other hand were sinful, couldn't stay away from them. The ending with the peach pie was absolute satisfaction
Herbsaint is our new favorite restaurant. We loved it so much that we went back the next day, and have been raving about it to all our friends.
The food is a revelation, and the service is exceptional.
Everything we've had on the menu has been spectacular, and we intend to go back this week to try something new.
I can't recommend this place enough. It is truly one of the very best restaurants in New Orleans.
