So many good places to eat in New Orleans. This is one of the best. It is a smaller place on St Charles Place, and the selection of dishes was amazing. We went at lunch and it was fairly busy. The service was very good. The prices are a little on the high side, but well worth it. The menu... More

The restaurant exceeded our expectations and in a city known for excellent food. We would have liked to go back again before we leave New Orleans, but alas they are closed on Sunday evenings.

We walked by this attractive bistro, asked for a table & were lucky enough to get one! What a terrific dining experience we had from the impeccable service to the delicious food & drink. The 4 of us got different dishes & all of them were superb. The quality of the food was excellent, also. Despite being very full, we... More

The menu was way to pretentious for us. Every restaurant should have at least one domestic beer on the menu. If all you're going to do is serve microbrews then offer a description of each beer. Probably a nice place to take the wife, but definitely not a place to kick back and relax after a hard day at the... More

In my 67 years, I have had 2 meals I would consider as close to perfect as one could get. One was at Fleming's Steakhouse in Memphis on New Year's Eve and the other was to my recent visit to Herbsaint. I took the plunge and ordered the Wagyu steak which had been raised on a farm in West Monroe,... More

We are still surprised that this wasn't a home run. We are easy to please in NOLA. A place like this, with a ton or really strong reviews, would normally live up to expectations. So sorry to report that it didn't. We had fried oysters (with hot sauce), gumbo, shrimp w/saffron aioli, and gnocchi. Every dish was under seasoned and... More

Wow! Highly recommended this one! Reservations necessary. Great atmosphere and service. My husband had the swordfish special and I had the chicken with crawfish. Amazing. Seriously. Go here

Wonderful appetizers: the gumbo, short ribs and vegetable soup. The Red fish special was cooked perfectly on a parsnip purée with crispy broccoli; the steak was perfect and the chicken was also delicious. Loved the apple pie profiteroles and the pot au creme with orange. The suggested wine a Dolcetto, was also what we were looking for. I can't imagine... More

First let me say that our food was great and our server did a fine job at our dinner on Thursday March 9. However the floor manager really aggravated our group of 6 +1. We are about 3/4 through our meal and an additional friend shows up. With a little bit or rearranging of our table we would have been... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
