Flaming Torch Restaurant

 5 star(s)  (08/06/2009)
“We are so pleased we tried Flaming Torch for the first time last weekend - it will definitely not be our last visit to this wonderful restaurant. Every single dish exceeded our expectations in quality and in portion size. Each bite was savored.”

“I am a New Orleans resident. When I entertain people from out of town or locals, I take them to Broussard's because I can absolutely count on having a fine dining experience, from fresh and delicious food to impeccable service. I recommend this restaurant with great pleasure.”


 5 star(s)  (02/25/2009)
“This place is amazing. The restuarant is beatiful and inviting, the food was just one delight after another. The bartender Mariann was one of the friendlist people we meet in New Orleans. I wish we had more time in New Orleans we would have gone back for dinner another night.”

Galatoires Restaurant Inc

 5 star(s)  (05/28/2008)

Antoine's Restaurant

“The best restaurant in New Orleans. It is always a pleasure to return to Antoine's. The service is fantastic and the food is the best. The Oysters Rockafeller and Oysters a la Foche are to delicious. The waiters are true professionals.”


 5 star(s)  (01/27/2008)
“What a beautiful restaurant! When you first approach it from the street, you have no idea of how gorgeous the dining rooms and courtyard are. The night that I dinner there they had a wedding in the courtyard and what appeared to be some type of corporate event in another room that runs adjacent to t... ”

Brennans Restaurant Reservations

 5 star(s)  (06/25/2003)
“I have had breakfast here twice, and dinner once and so far have been pleased. I will be returning for breakfast while on business in July. First, I must say there is no way to justify the price they charge for breakfast, but you know that going in. At least so far I have found the food served to be... ”

Brennans Restaurant Reservations

“If it weren't for the Bananas Foster the rating would be much lower. We knew going in to "Brennans for breakfast" it was going to be expensive. However what we didn't expect was poor service, a burnt English Muffin with the $28 eggs Benedict and the waiter forgetting abuot our Bananas Foster-the m... ”

Court of Two Sisters the Reservations

 4 star(s)  (09/28/2000)
“The perfect Sunday Brunch event... an absolutely beautiful outdoor courtyard, a jazz trio (if you go on the right day!) a succulent, never-ending buffet, and waiters that will happily show you how to properly suck the juice out of a crawfish head... what more could you ask for from the New Orleans r... ”

Arnaud's Restaurant - Reservations

 4 star(s)  (06/06/2000)
“Arnaud's Richelieu Room offers a completely different experience than the main dining room, which is gloriously sparkling from beveled glass windows and crystal chandeliers. The Richelieu provides a live Dixieland Jazz Band accompanied by the full menu of Creole specialties - it was a rollicking go... ”

Arnaud's Restaurant - Reservations

 4 star(s)  (04/17/2000)
“After several visits where we explored the classic Creole menu, we began sampling the nightly special. With that we are told, the chef creates a meal from what is best in the market that day. Service is extremely knowledgible and gracious. The lunch menu explores hard to find local favorites such ... ”
