I am here with my 2 sons. We stopped by this restaurant before going to Damp adventure. The service is very nice and polite. The food is fine. We really had a good time.

This restaurant was a great choice for dinner. Music from the next room was a nice background treat to our meal and conversation. The waitstaff was attentive, but not too much so, helpful, and knowledgeable about the food and wine. The surroundings were peaceful and elegant. My husband and I each enjoyed a lovely seafood dinner. The fish was cooked... More

If you are Staying at the Monteleone, you must order the beignets! They are the best in New Orleans by far.

The food was delicious, ample and reasonably priced. Due to a dental problem my husband was able to order soups for his meal. He thoroughily enjoyed and still says it was the best soup ever. I am anxious to return to Crillo in the future.

This restaurant is pricy but has never disappointed me. The service is great as is the food. I always dine here when staying at the Hotel Mnteleone or in the nearby area. I can easily recommend this restaurant and actually did recommend this to an aquantiance during a recent trip. They loved it!

We tried 3 different places for Beignats even Cafe du Monde and Criollo's are the best. And adding the praline sauce Wow. The eggs Benedict special varies from day to day. We hit the seafood. So different but very good. You have to go and experience it!

Dinner here is great if you want somewhere that has good food without having to get into the bustle of the NOLA crowd. They take reservations and walk-ins. The service is top-notch and quick. While you can absolutely take your kids here, it is more of an adult restaurant. It is also surprisingly quiet considering the Carousel Bar (very popular)... More

Asked waiter to verify that chicken and sausage soup had no trace of shrimp because I have shrimp allergies. He said he would ask, came back and said we can do that. Order took an exceptionally long time and when it arrived contained shrimp. Manager said it was something else and brought another soup. I told him I didn't want... More

In my NOLA trip , I was not able to get sits at the Muriel's Jackson Square Restaurant and ended up at Criollo. This was a pleasant surprise as the Seafood here are amazing and I recommend the crab cakes & duck breast. Crab Cakes tasted very unique and fresh. Duck was just right. To top it off they had...

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
