Red Gravy Ratings and Reviews
If you are visiting or live in NOLA, Red Gravy is a must for your restaurant list. Order the meatballs no matter what else you are getting...THE BEST. The Chef is always inventive with seasonal/local ingredients. Everything is delicious. The wait staff is so friendly and take great care of you. I highly recommend Red Gravy.
I only dined here once before. I loved it the first time and yesterday was even better. The server (Natalie) was great. She was knowledgeable of the menu and had great suggestions. This is small place with tables situated close to each other. However, the intimate setting was great for me to get caught up with a friend.
The first thing I experienced was a very rude person. Waitress was fine, but they were understaffed. Eggs florentine was terrible. Prosciutto di Parma and fruit plate was a waste of money. Their idea of fruit was to cut up an orange. The only positive was the pumpkin waffles, which were amazing.
Outstanding brunch menu with very unique selections, just around the corner from Canal Street near the JW Marriott. Small seating area, so make reservations for weekend brunch. Very fruendly service with great suggestions. You have not lived until you have their homemade meatballs. We liked it so much, we came back the next day, ordering completely different dishes. Quite a broad selection and everything looked fantastic from the Pevan waffle to the skillet cakes along with Mark's breakfast and every egg dish imaginable.
I made a reservation for 10am and when we arrived we were told oops sorry a table was not saved for us but we would be seated at next available table. We were then asked to sit outside. Two guys walked in while we were outside and they got seated immediately. Prices were way expensive for what was served. Really small bloody Marie's with a pepper and an olive (really no celery, green beans, etc?) for 11-12 dollars each. Hostess even pointed out that we had arrived a bit early (5minutes) for our reservation which should not have mattered since they had not reserved a table for us anyway.
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!
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.
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!
