The food and service was excellent. We got the fried eggplant, which was dry and the waiter got the chef to cook it again, and it tasted better the second time. I would definitely go back.

After a week of sightseeing and hitting as many of the top rated dining spots in NOLO we were too exhausted to leave Hotel Monteleone for our last dinner. I tend to avoid hotel restaurants but I have to say this was hands down the...More

All the staff were wonderful! Kathy made the trip memorable and showed off the Monteleone's hospitality! Knowing that she's had the same (first) job for 47 years is a reflection on Monteleone's charm and service! Visit Cafe du Monde, but eat the beignets at Monteleone....More

Very decent food. Had a shrimp dish that was outstanding. It's a couple of blocks of Bourbon Street so it's a bit quieter. Be warned though it is fairly pricey for what they serve.

No complaints about the service, whether on the lounge or the dining room. The food however is another story. Caesar salad the could have come from the bottom side of a rotary mower. Awful by any standard coupled to a price that borders insulting. Goes...More

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

Breakfast is casual. We did not eat dinner there but did have drinks at the bar and lounge. We did not see anyone in very casual clothing. So if not long pants then dress shorts. Hope this helps.
