Never Again

To say this restaurant is a place to 'see and be seen' by locals is about the best thing that happens here. I'm not sure that qualifies this restaurant to have any other positive comments made about it. Having made the decision to go there for a birthday celebration, we left virtually ANGRY at what we experienced. The fact patrons are asked to adhere to their rather 'formal' dress code, makes no sense. The dinin... view more

Fun Scene, Food Meh

Given that our goal was to experience the famous Friday Galatoire's lunch, I can't say I was disappointed by the atmosphere. Every Friday the place bustles with local business people who take a late "liquid lunch." At first I was disappointed to be put in the more subdued upstairs area, but was grateful when I realized how deafeningly loud it was downstairs. We ordered an assortment for the table, start... view more

Desgrace to New Orleans

I have lived in New Orleans my whole life, I do not recommend this place to anyone. There are many more restaurants that are actually worth eating at. Guys have to wear sports coats and cannot take it off. What kind of crap is that? Who actually likes eating with a coat on. And then Galatoires is so small and stuffy, I know the guys are hot and uncomfortable. They say you must be dressed up to eat there but then they... view more

Didn't live up to the reputation! Really only pretentious!

Unfortunately, this once fine restaurant has run its course. The wait staff was incredibly friendly, but the food was just plain disappointing! Every loaf of bread they brought out was burned on top, my chicken clemenceau was unremarkable, as was my son's steak. For $100 for two, it just wasn't worth the build-up. Wouldn't g there ever again.

A truly wonderful evening

Had he most amazing meal at Galatoire with my Fi's family. I suggested the place and no one was let down. The Grand Goute, fried eggplant the potatoes were great beginings. A new thing was the salad with everything, called a Godcheaux Salad, it was just yummy and amazing. I had trout and it was made perfectly. I think they could add a few deserts and the wine list was reasonable. A great night in a great New Or... view more

Wonderful, classic meal!

We were in New Orleans last month for a weekend to celebrate our seventh anniversary. We decided to go to Galatoire's for our anniversary dinner because we wanted to get really dressed up and have an old-school, New Orleans-style dinner. We went a bit later in the evening and didn't have to wait in line--great start to the night! Our waiter turned out to be fantastic. He was super friendly and made us feel right ... view more

Galatoire's should uphold their end of the bargain. If they are going to insist that men wear coats and on charging $$$$, they should serve food that cannot be mistaken for the Kid Cuisine Seafood Adventure Pack. My girlfriend and I knew that things were off to a bad start when the server mentioned at least 5 recommendations in which the first ingredient was iceberg lettuce. Are you kidding me? The same stuff tha... view more

Lost 4 stars yesterday

One cannot judge a restaurant simply by the food alone. We had visited Galatoires's several years ago and were anxious to return. Once our flight from Denver landed on 6/6/08, we jumped into the rental car and headed straight for the restaurant around 2:30 in the afternoon. The sign at the entrance said ""long pants."" The maitre d' made us wait, then looked us over and said my jeans were fine but my husbands were to... view more

Excellent wait staff, but bland food...

My friend and I got dressed up the last night of our weeklong trip to New Orleans and headed down to Galatoires. We dined on the first floor and enjoyed the jovial ambience. The service was impeccable! Our waiter was very attentive and helped narrow our choices down. He also recommended a fabulous bottle of wine. However, the food did not meet my expectations. Everything from appetizer to entree was drenched in butt... view more
