Herbsaint Ratings and Reviews

Everything was terrific except one glitch with the hostess. When arriving at the restaurant, the hostess did not greet us, but continued to examine her computer screen. This did not last long, but was long enough to register to me. Food was terrific, drinks were good and a very good recommendation from the waitress, seating and atmosphere was comfortable. I would definitely return.

It was a simple set up and nice windows with a view of the city. The food was amazing. The lamb and mushroom lasagna was so good! The crab gazpacho with watermelon was refreshing. And my friend and I had the flourless choc cake with Vietnamese coffee ice cream. The chocolate was dark and yummy but in all honesty the ice cream was the highlight. I would have just asked for the ice cream! Great experience !! Would highly recommend!

Great start to our NO trip. We love Herbsaint,and although there are many wonderful restaurants here, we always include Herbsaint. The food,ambiance and service are top notch. We've never had even a mediocre meal here. Put it on your list for lunch or dinner.

We were at Herbsaint with our daughter and her 16-month-old son, and the wait staff was incredibly welcoming and sweet to all four of us. The food was incredible from the watermelon gazpacho to the fresh drum and banana chocolate dessert. I love this restaurant!!

This was maybe one of the top three meals I've had in my 51 years. From the fresh watermelon gazpacho mixed with the sublime olive oil and the jumbo crab.............one of the best soups ever! Then we had the spaghetti (basically a take on carbornara) with the divine panko dipped poached egg that was fried and placed on top....exquisite! To the duck confit...... excellent as well. I didn't care that much for the desert...banana butter tart??? Not memorable enough for me to rave about. I liked it so much that I brought back a party of 7 the next night. And I had the tuna small plate......most excellent. Service was also perfect!

My wife and I had a wonderful meal. This restaurant has been on our list of places to try for some time. The entire experience was excellent. The roasted beet salad was outstanding, balancing the flavors of the beets, orange/grapefruit, yogurt and nuts. The butter poached tuna was cooked perfectly with a slight bit of heat from the chillies. My wife had the duck confit and I had the Baked Drum Provencal. Both dishes were delicious. Service was timely and friendly. The wine list is very diverse and includes several very affordable selections.

The cuisine was top notch and exceeded our expectations. We were seated right on time and service was attentive without being bothersome. Atmosphere was nice but loud. I would go again the next time I get down to NOLA.

By far, on all counts, the best meal of our food-centered trip to New Orleans...every dish, including their home-made ciabatta, from small plates to desserts, was perfectly prepared & toe-curling delicious. It was just the two of us, good thing we always share since we had trouble deciding from the menu's temptations. Had two small plates for starters-- Louisiana Shrimp & Brabant Potatoes & House-made Spaghetti with Guanciale & Fried-Poached Farm Egg (a culinary wonder!), followed by entrees of Moscovy Duck Leg Confit( succulent meat, irresistibly crispy skin), Dirty Rice, & Citrus Gastrique and Teres Major(a not-so-easy- to-find cut of buttery-tender, full-flavored beef),served as requested a bit less done than medium-rare, with fries. For desserts, the silky texture and deep flavor of the flourless chocolate cake set a new standard,& was beautifully balanced with Vietnamese Coffee Ice cream & Hazelnut Brittle, the Banana Brown Butter Tart served with a Fleur de Sel Carmel Sauce was as satisfying as it was unique. Our serving team was terrific, and had a great part in making this such a memorable meal.

The quality of the food was good, and the ingredients tasted fresh. However, the entree selections seemed to lack a clear direction -- there was a bit of this and that. The restaurant appeared to be a local favorite as evident by the number of guests/patrons that seemed familiar with the staff and each other. I liked the restaurant, but I think there are better restaurants for out-of-towners.

The décor has been freshened since my last visit . The spare rib small plate was fantastic. I still believe that they have some of the best gumbo in town. That night it was chicken and Andouille, a favorite for me. I think that the new bar area would be fun for a drink and a small plate if you are not in the mood for a full meal.
