Success! Thanks for posting your review of Old Coffee Pot Restaurant. You’ve done the world some good today.

Rudest Service Ever!

The breakfast servers are hands down the rudest we've ever had the misfortune to encounter. The food is good, but not worth the aggravation. From the moment you enter the courtyard, you are treated as if you are an interloper, and the attitude is pervasive. We had a particularly hostile waitress, a black lady with short black hair, who would look at you and say, ""and""... if you did not order to her satisfaction. As... view more

Dinner at Coffee Pot

My husband and I had dinner at the Coffee Pot after a recommendation of a local bartender.\r \r We got to have a table by the front which was nice. Our waiter was very good and the service was good.\r \r I had Fleur De Lis Chicken and my husband had the fish. Both were very good. \r \r On the other hand we went for breakfast the next morning and the service was very slow and I wasn't crazy about the dish I had the Eg... view more

Didn't realize service could be this bad

It's amazing. I never realized it was possible to feel this unwelcome at a restaurant. The wait staff was downright hostile. 30 minutes just to get an order in. When we asked (very nicely) to place our order, we were met with attitude you cannot imagine. Once the meal came, we were held hostage. No more coffee. No water. No SILVERWARE to even eat with. When I finally got up to ask for silverware (and be allowed to ea... view more

Best Meal in New Orleans

... Best meal I had in New Orleans. Now, I've only been there once, but I tried some classics -- Galatoire's, Mothers, Cafe du Monde... A little off the beaten path in the prettier sections of the French Quarter (read: away from Bourbon), Coffee Pot is run by a group of charming older ladies. Service is SLOW, so don't have any important appointments waiting. Waiting to order takes forever, and silverware is an aftert... view more

(RE: 2 months ago) I was told about the Coffee Pot Restaraunt by a friend who frequents the Quarter. My friend really pumped up this places reputation and ""amazing"" food. When my girlfriend and I walked in it was a fairly busy Saturday night. Our server......James?...........Jonathan?......was very friendly and very knowledgeable about drinks and menu items. Even though he seemed busy he helped us decide on a dish.... view more

Fantastic Food

My girlfriends and I ate here for dinner and had an overall great experience. I ordered the parmesan encrusted snapper, and it was excellent. The entrees were a little expensive, but the food was so good, it seemed worth it. I'd go so far as to say it was probably the best meal I've had in all my five trips to the French Quarter throughout the past 10 years (and I've experienced a variety of French Quarter restaurant... view more

Out of biscuits at 10 am - huh? Biscuits are easy!\r \r The waitress was a numbskull and couldn't be bothered with us. She said our toast would be out soon. We got it from someone else 10 minutes after we finished our tasteless omelets.

What happened to the this Restaurant????

I visit NOLA 2X a year. I almost always eat breakfast or brunch here... however this past Labor Day Weekend (Sept 2009) when myself and two friends went there they managed to screw up all 3 orders, never rectified the situation and on top of all that added an 18% GRATUITY to the bill. So the service is horrible, the order was wrong and we are being forced to tip. NEVER AGAIN.\r I would have rated this as a zero but I... view more

Love to travel
The true New Orleans Experience!!!

First I would like to address a few of the negative comments that I've seen in reference to the food here. For instance the one that said the bisque was too no!!!! I live in New Orleans and I frequent this quaint little place often and the food is not over cooked or over seasoned. To say the least this is some of the best food in the French Quarter outside of fine dining. This is the way creole and c... view more
