The starter was the soup of the day, an unpretentious but great cabbage soup...we got a sample without asking! The Sautéed gulf redfish was fantastic and the Hake Pontchartrain was not bad

We are New Orleans natives and went for a birthday lunch. The restaurant is classic and sleek, quiet and comfortable. The lunch was delicious and beautifully presented. Our wait staff, Donald and Fernando, were excellent. They were very attentive but not hovering. The bread pudding...More

We had both a breakfast here as well as a dinner. Both meals were great. The service was excellent. Having an allergy is sometimes difficult, but they made it work with great meals.

The restaurant is well appointed and has an air of sophistication. We arrived for a mid morning breakfast and were seated next to the service table and asked to move to a window seat as there were plenty of empty tables. We were offered menus...More

Located in the Hotel Monteleone, this is a really nice place to eat any meal and has an excellent staff as well. I don't usually eat in my hotel, but this is one I look forward to visiting for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Really nice and cosy breakfast room. It is a bit chilly in the outer section of the restaurant as the air-conditioning is pretty intense here. Less drafty in the inner part. The majority of the waiters are really nice, attentive and fast. A few seem...More

I had a filet and my husband had a shrimp dish and both were excellent! We had 2 waiters and they were both very attentive. The hotel Monteleone is worth seeing too.

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.
