Food was delicious and service was very good. Bar drinks & wine were also very good. Only problem was at 7:00 on a Saturday night the bar was out of Olives. Since we were all matini drinkers that was disappointing.

We were there on Thanksgiving and, despite being overworked, the staff was terrific. The pate appetizer was very good as was the Tableau salad. The turkey was okay, but that's what turkey is, even on Thanksgiving. Service could not have been better, especially the upstairs bartender. The decor is lovely. I hope to return on a non-holiday.

This was our third visit to Tableau . We go there on Thanksgiving evening--while visiting our son in NOLA. This time we made a reservation and didn't have to sit at the bar to eat. Our waitresses were friendly and helpful. Service was good--we were not in a hurry and we were not rushed. A bit pricey, but worth it for a special occasion.

We had thanksgiving dinner there. 3 of us had the prix fix 3 course dinner and were very happy. I had a fish that was just ok there was very few carrots and leeks under the fish, and very little going on on the plate. The sauce was also not as delicious as I would have expected. I had butternut squash bisque first, and it was quite good. Desserts were tasty. Service was good.

We had Thanksgiving meal at 230 pm. everything was delicious and wonderful service. on Wednesday we had lunch that was also delicious. great place, great service and great food. We will be back! Thank you Tableau and their gracious employees. Shout out to Evan!

We had the most perfect night at Tableau, perched at a balcony corner table overlooking Jackson Square on a chilly fall night while sipping Merlot and savoring New Orleans fare of sautéed black drum, salad and bananas foster. The service was impeccable. We were one of very few tables and the only folks who elected to sit outside but the opportunity to be on the balcony above Chartes Street and a celebratory second line was too good to pass up despite the chill in the air. Tableau treated us - and our palates -- so very well.

The food was exceptional. Steak. Redfish Bienville. BBQ shrimp and grits. 2 desserts. Toffee Browne and custard pie. Top shelf good. Service was serious but not stuffy. Will return on the next trip to NOLA. Eat in the courtyard in the Spring.

We ate lunch on the balcony with a great view of Jackson square. I had the le petite salad which was perfectly dressed and the red fish which was phenomenal. The service was amazing, very tentative and friendly. Overall great experience. Our experience was so great we tried their burbon house restaurant, another great experience.

Great food, service and meal! I recently visited for a business lunch and we were able to get through our agenda as well as enjoy a great lunch. The service was impeccable. The private dining area was not an option so the table seating near the bar area was a little noisy at first. We asked to have the doors closed and we were accommodated. I will be back!

We stayed with a well crafted sazerac. Both of our servers, Brianna and Ashley, were warm, welcoming, and knowledgeable. They were both happy to answer questions about the menu and Brianna's suggestion for the appetizer trio of shrimp, crab, and truffled crab clawed was fantastic. My friend and I were staggered by how good every element of our meal was. My friend even declared our meal as the best ever.

The dining room was cold, even with sweaters on. We were told the room was difficult to heat. The sauce on the red fish was overpowering. I understand the drum was so-so. We got a sugar free dessert that we were told had no sweetner in it, but it had alcohol sugar and tasted like it. I brought my mom here for her 90th birthday and felt apologetic because it was a disappointment.

The food was good, but not outstanding, except for the creme brulee dessert, which was absolutely delicious. The restaurant itself is very pretty, especially the balcony seating and the courtyard. Service was a bit scattered, with one person taking a drink order and another not aware of it. We were seated next to a table with about 15 people who had had one too many and were extremely loud (though of course this isn't the restaurant's fault). Overall, a good, but not great experience.

One of the best brunches in town. Grillades and grits are the best I've ever had. They had a very rich brown sauce with veal stock and a poached egg on top of the grits. This was the perfect Sunday brunch dish on a cool crisp day. The turtle soup is a signature Brennan dish , fantastic. To start, the brandy milk punch in a tall glass set the stage for a memorable meal

My husband and I had the best experience and food tonight for our 5th anniversary! The food was incredible, especially the red fish! The service was also great. The manager was super sweet and picked out a desert for the special occasion, the hot date (?) cake was divine!
When we read some of the reviews, they said that the wait staff wasn't friendly. We did not experience this, we had a great time and our waiters were helpful and kind.

Food and service were amazing definitely one of the highlights of the trip for 3 of our first timers been once before everything was as amazing gas my first time if your looking for an upscale Resturant to go to during you visit to New Orleans look no further

Enjoyed this restaurant right off of Jackson Square in the French Quarter. Not too busy and very accommodating to our large group with 3 small children. Food was quite good and the prices were reasonable for the location. The waiter was definitely helpful in explaining the menu as well as making sure the kids had everything they needed. Much appreciated.

The venue is great! Keeps with the New Orleans vibe on an elite standard. We enjoyed ourselves.

Not a Brennan's restaurant. Rest of family got dinner. After 30 minutes rest of family finished and my dinner never arrived. Bill not adjusted in anyway. Manager was appalled but did nothing to fix it. Very disappointing.

I was very disappointed. We have eaten at several places owned by the Brennan's and this was not up to par. It was my boyfriends birthday and they seated us basically right inside the door. It was so loud. The food was okay at best. We will not be back.

A poor experience from start to finish. We waited over 45 minutes to be seated despite reservations and checking in with the front desk early. There was no place to comfortably wait for a table as the receptionist appeared confused and disgruntled while she continually checked her iPad for a table. When we were finally seated in the courtyard, there were several other empty tables nearby. The wait staff was less than gracious and inattentive as well. We asked for bread three times before it finally came. The food was truly the worst meal I've had in NOLA. The grisly turkey was served in a bath of tasteless broth, and the shrimp and grits swimming in an uninspired barbecue sauce. Very disappointing and will not return to this overpriced and poorly run restaurant.

For a Brennan's family restaurant, Tableau is very disappointing. As a native New Orleanian, my expectations for creole cuisine in the French Quarter are rather high due to the number of restaurant options. Tableau is located in such a historic building, one would think ambience would not be a challenge. Poor lighting accompanied by a bland interior set the tone for an uneventful dining experience. I certainly wish the food and service would have compensated, but unfortunately that's not the case.

We were seated at 6:10 and told our servers (2) we were going to LePetit at 7:30. Our drinks and appetizer arrived promptly but entree was about 40 min later. We had a cup of cold coffee, no sugar or sweetener offered and no dessert which I had ordered when we placed our order initially as part of the theater menu. I also asked for my dessert with coffee. My food was over cooked and cold but I said nothing because we were so late.
We eat here before each performance and I will try Tableau once more.

This lunch would have been fabulous except for the drunk woman that sat at the table behind me--- just drunk and rude-- loud and kept getting up and out of her chair to dance or whatever and shoved our chairs--- it's a tight fit on the balcony-- completely obnoxious. We ate fast and hit the road to get away from her.
