Success! Thanks for posting your review of The Praline Connection. You’ve done the world some good today.


Me and my family were visiting and decided to eat there and it was a big mistake. We had the taste of soul for 26.00 and it was horrible will not be going back there!!! The only thing that was ok was the cornbread and the Mac and cheese!!!!

Authentic New Orleans taste!

For authentic New Orleans taste & aroma of the sweetest praline desserts - The Praline Connection is it! The greens, yams, shrimp étouffée was amazing and the pies were a great compliment to the meal.

Going downhill fast

Years ago this was an excellent restaurant. To night I went in and had meatloaf, macaroni and cheese and turnip greens plus cornbread. I'm glad Chef Gordon Ramsay was not there! He would have sent it back after the first taste. The meat loaf was terrible and the macaroni and cheese was dried out as if it had been sitting out all day. The turnip greens were typical out of the can greens. A big disappointment. Don't bo... view more

Furious in New Orleans

The entire experience was horrible. We booked reservations and arrived on time. We waited to be seated until they finally figured out how to seat a table of 14. The restaurant was very smelly, and when we made it aware to the management they denied the stiky scent. The food arrived cold and the fried shrimps were under cooked. I wouldn't recommend anyone to eat there. I am a New Orleanian; this place is for tourist w... view more

Little Place, Big Flavor

The food there is so great! Order anything on the menu and leave pleased. I witnessed a couple who attempted to dine WELL after the restaurant closed its doors. The chefs had already closed the kitchen. The lady (from the couple) begged on her knees for five minutes and asked the manager to reopen the store. I understood how she felt. It is definitely a go-to spot while in New Orleans.

This is one of the best ever restaurants my wife and I have ever eaten. Although we are basically vegetarians this place is the one place we drop all our dietary guidelines and feast on their chicken livers. The vegetarian dishes are exceptional. Collards and fried okra are unreal. We plan to eat Thanksgiving Dinner there this year. Glad this one survived Katrina. I am almost reluctant to tell people about it, selfis... view more

Southern food at its best

I recently ate here with a group of 10 high school students and two other adults from Oregon on a trip to help rebuild. One of the students selected the restaurant from our travel book. I was surprised had how much they enjoyed the food - a few even polished off their bowl of ""greens"" (which all of the adults loved). Most got fried chicken and found it to be a substantial step up from Popeye's. I got the red beans ... view more

Basic Creole Fare - Yum.

We had...chicken, greens, rice, catfish, macaroni and cheese, and fried alligator sausage. All was really good. The chicken was not the best, but the rest was awesome. The catfish was breaded nicely and tasted good (even though I don't like fish; I tried some of the boyfriends'), the greens were plentiful and tasty, and the macaroni and cheese was cheesy and the pasta not too overdone. The prices are pretty good, and... view more

One of the best in the world!

Having traveled the world over, living in the San Francisco Bay Area with great restaurants, and being a self-admitted food snob (I have a Chinese stomach), Im not easily won over. Nevertheless, Praline Connection amazed me. The service was decent but the food was excellent. My wife and I have the fried platter and the bbq platter. Here is my opinion: (1) Best Fried Chicken I ever had I want to know how they got the ... view more
