this was our first visit back to NOLA in way too long, friends of ours that live in the Garden District took us there as it's one of their faves. Now I know why- everything, including the french fries (?) was great!
Pork Belly? OMG- to die for, and we're from NC, hog capital of the world. Desserts were fabulous, the waiter was great. I love this city and all it's food. Herbsaint did not disappoint!!

I have just returned to Herbsaint with my discerning tastebuds prepared for the VERY BEST in New Orleans fine dining, only to discover the cuisine even BETTER than what I remembered from previous visits! The appetisers (chef-made pork terrine with homemade bread-and-butter pickle relish, crisply-battered frog legs, and crunchy, warm, homemade bread and butter) were fantastically tasty; the salad fresh, cold and crisp with perfect dressing; and the entrees were so good that we had to inobtrusively sample from one another's plates! The veal was so tender, it melted in our mouths; I've never had better soft-shelled crab; and the fish and the shrimp were divine! The service was friendly, informative, and lovely. The wine steward came to our table to recommend a wonderful blush wine to start and an excellent red which complimented the food indescribably well! The desserts were incomparable to any other (coconut cream pie that tasted like those made by my Great Aunt Lilly when we visited her in Gulfport when I was a child, Brown Butter Banana Tart that almost melted our souls, and something deep chocolate that just sort of dissolved from the spoon and seeped into all of the ""places that taste"" in our mouths!) I wanted to spend the night and do it all over again in the morning, but that will have to wait until the next time I toddle in from Houston (and THAT trip will be SOONER than I had planned before this most recent Herbsaint visit!) This restaurant is perfect in atmosphere, and it is easily-located----700 block of St. Charles Avenue---and I highly recommend (and often DO recommend) this wonderful restaurant!

The food was pretty good but hey the prices are alittle better than the food. My boyfriend ordered the frog legs (greasy) and the shrimp & grits (very good) he also had a bowl of tomato and shrimp bisque, (not that warm and fishy). I ordered the ribs (very good alittle salty) and I had the Herbsaint salad... (good needed a surprise). We had the coconut cream pie, oh my God let me die tomorrow it was ""all that"". we had wine, needed a update on the wine list and some surprise cocktails, the bartender was warm and friendly, the waiter had english and spanish as a second language... the bar smelled of smoke (Susan make the restaurant non-smoking please). Always a fave needs alittle more attention to details.

First off, this is a VERY expensive restaurant. There is no real reception area, so when you walk in you are IN the restaurant. My dad and my husband were parking the car, and the hostess made us stand there until they came in, as the whole restaurant is staring at you. That is, until we demanded that we be seated. It was ridiculous.
Then, my mom ordered the salmon, but asked that it be ""well-done"", as she just doesn't like it medium rare. We were told the chef REFUSED to cook it any other way than it was offered. What kind of crap is that??? What if she had an allergy to one of the ingredients...would he have accomodated her?
All the staff just need to get over themselves. They all seemed snotty. We have too many good restaurants here for that kind of attitude. I will say, however, if you are going to go, absolutely get their signature cocktail, the Herbsaint champagne cocktail, because it is truly divine! Maybe I'll get one in a to-go cup next time I pass by, because I wouldn't go in that restaurant again for any longer than that.
