Red Gravy Ratings and Reviews

The waitress was excellent, the interior welcoming. My dining partner had asked to have the shrimp on gluten free pasta rather than grits and was willing to pay the difference but she was told it was not possible unless she paid for two full meals. Having been in the business before, there is really no reason that request could not be accommodated; if it had, she would have been a much, much happier customer. Otherwise, we are not disappointed with our experience.

Food was yummy, a little expensive but for the first time the service was really slow. Maybe just an off day - will give it another try before writing it off . It was a Saints home game and we went at 930am for that reason but found the food arrival took an unusually long time.

The meal was fantastic, very inventive menu, the drinks were great, and our service was on spot. this was a brunch meal , but I am sure we will be back to try out some of the other more savory menu items also. I would not hesitate to bring friends , dates, or fellow employees.

Great spot for delectable dishes, fine service and delightful atmosphere. Can't wait to go back to New Orleans for "Red Gravy!" True, there are wonderful Italian items on the menu (make sure you try Nanni), but the creativity of the menu offers yummy items that will satisfy the southern cuisine craving as well. This place was a highlight of our visit!

Chose Red Gravy based on reviews and was not disappointed. Food was very good, but kind of pricey for breakfast. Service was great...we brought our 3 children and the staff went out of their way to interact with them and make us feel welcome.
Great Food + Great Service/Staff
Just back from a quick trip to New Orleans and this was our favorite meal of the weekend. Great, friendly staff serving up some outstanding Italian food!
The shared Canolli Pancakes were our favorite of this brunch...but, also had 2 other brunch entrees that were soooo good! We can't wait to head back to try the famous Red Gravy!
I would recommend reservations, unless you like standing out in the NOLA humidity. Tables are a bit close, but we're heavier guys and were not bothered by our neighbors...nor, did they seem bothered by us!
We've definitely added Red Gravy to our list of "must-eats" for our next visit to the city.

Food was good when we got it. Wait was way too long. When asked when our food would be ready server said when it's ready, not the reply I was looking for. Not the best experience in a town with a lot of great venues.

A must place to eat when in New Orleans! We discovered it as itcwas one of the few placds open early on a Sunday mornjng. We enjoyed so much that we went back ghe next day gor brunch! Music during Sunday brunch was a great added touch.
Like eating at my Italian Grandma's House :)
I have now dined at this great little Italian joint three times, in the last year, and I've only been to NOLA twice! It is that good, we went back two days in a row once for lunch and then breakfast the following day. The cooking and offerings reminded my family and I of our grandmother and our Italian roots and you would be hard-pressed to find better italian food in the city :) Beyond the food, which I can't say enough good things about, plus they have tremendous gluten free offerings (YAY!) the ambiance is adorable and the servers are all fantastic. In addition, most weekends and during Mardi Gras, they have live music which certainly fits right into the NOLA scene. Over our various meals, we sampled the "down the shore" omelette, the crab beignet hoagie, the GF pasta bolognese, eggs florentine (with side of GF toast and ricotta cheese), the cannoli pancakes (my mom thought she'd died and gone to cannoli heaven, it was her same cannoli filling recipe), mussels and frites, and their shrimp po' boy. We even had a few of the boozey coffees and cocktails and those were great as well. I can't say enough good things about this spot, yes it is on the pricier side for breakfast/lunch, but the quality and flavors of the food are without a doubt, worth it!
Waffles and Wings to Mimosas and Meatballs Yum
Waffles and wings with Cranberry habanero sauce was a huge hit, Roe's Breakfast was perfection. Late Morning Meatballs under eggs are a new favorite. Shrimp and Grits were the best ever. The bottle of champagne with 3 juices for Mimosas was a wise choice. Not crazy about pulp in the OJ.

Came in for brunch. It's a very small dining area that is overly decorated in several different themes. Ok food with a large price tag. So many other great brunch options in NOLA that do not require you to reserve with a credit card.

I NEVER wrote reviews. But this warranted one. Made you choose 2 or more things off the menu. Can't buy a la carte. When other customers were told this they left. We should have followed them out. Had to pay for bread. In an Italian joint! Meals were very underwhelming.
Extremely Poor Service
I booked this restaurant for a Sunday Brunch after reading many positive reviews. However when I arrived, the server immediately told my party that we would have to be quick because the restaurant had decided to close early for the day. She proceeded to act rude and rush the entire experience because they wanted to close. Although the food was pretty good, the experience was ruined because we felt we were not wanted there. I would not go back because of this experience.
