The Court of Two Sisters is without a doubt the most romantic restaurant I have ever been! My husband and I have eaten there everytime we have gone to New Orleans. The food is excellent and we were treated like the legendary ladies and gentlemen of the wealthy "Old South". The only thing missing was the horse and carriage waiting out front. It is a must when visiting the city.
If you are looking for exquisite dining with a casual atmoshpere, this is the place! I was so impressed with the service and the food, not to mention the history was very interesting. When you go, because I know you will, you must try the Turtle Soup!! It's "Slap Yo' Mamma" good! ;)

I went to the restaurant with my girlfriend for Valentine's day. I had been there before shortly after Katrina and it was practically deserted. This time they turned people away who didn't had reservations (even though there were empty tables around us the entire meal. I would say our experience was average, although for the price and reputation I would expect outstanding. I asked for a Reisling wine, and was given one, without benefit of a wine list or choice. the Paper menu was torn, something I'd expect from a basic dinner, not the COURT OF TWO SISTERS. Our waiter was young and struggled opening the wine. The appetizers were good, but I thought it was obvious my date and I were going to share them, he failed to offer any additional plates. Overall disappointing for Valentines day at that price.

This place is a must for anyone traveling to New Orleans. Just came back & had brunch there. Not only did I have a great brunch here - I can't believe that I ate turtle soup!!! Every item was amazing!!! Have the bread pudding and you will be convinced that you died & went to heaven.

My husband and I recently were in New Orleans and he insisted we ""find this restaurant with a lovely courtyard"" for lunch. He had dined there once before years ago with a group of people and could not remember the name. We walked around and finally he found it and I am so glad we did!!!! This is a lovely place to have a slow lunch. The courtyard was beautiful and the lunch buffet was yummy! I normally am not a ""buffet"" person, but was impressed with the quality and variety the restaurant had to offer. Great mimosa to go along with lunch too! It was expensive, I was a little surprised when we received our check, but my husband and I enjoyed it so what the heck.

I am a local who frequently brought my out-of-town friends and relatives to Two Sisters. The last time I made reservations for a party of ten, I specified that I needed indoor dining (I was on medication at the time that made me prone to sunburn.)
My husband and I arrived separately from the rest of our party. We were seated in the courtyard and our waiter served us drinks. Our other friends never showed up. I asked the waiter to move us to another table, preferably indoors. He suggested we wait a little longer. I am assuming he didn't want to lose the large ticket and gratuity related to a larger party.
Finally, my husband and I decided something had delayed our friends and decided to leave. When we went through the restaurant we found our friends....seated at another table and nearly finished with their meal! When I complained to the management I was neither offered an apology or compensation of any kind. The manager went so far as to say the mix up was MY fault since I didn't own a cel phone and couldn't call my friends to find out where they were. After an angry exchange he grudgingly comped the champagne my friends had ordered.
I have not dined there since nor do I have any intention of doing so.

The daily jazz brunch buffet is worth it's weight in Gold. It offers more than 80 items, including traditional breakfast foods, cold salads, soup, fruit, boiled seafood, dessert and more. We went on NBA All-Star weekend and the place was crowded.I love the Sweet Potato Salad .On the weekends, a special station makes eggs Benedict and omelets to order. I had the seaford omelet and it was excellent and the bread pudding was the bomb. Brunch wouldn't be the same without Two Sisters' signature mimosas. 2 of those and forget it. I love this place and will be back.
