Still The Best Meal I Ever Had

I've been visiting Tujagues Place for over 10 years. They continue to excel at the fixed menu dining experience. It is a step back in time when you walk in here. A perfectly portioned, great attention to details five course meal for under 50 bux. Each portion is delicate and savory. Save room for the bread pudding and coffee. If you want an off the menu experience ask the water for the Chicken and Gahlic' served over house made potato chips and Pahsley. TRUST ME!

Go somewhere else

My wife and I have eaten at a lot of places in and around New Orleans, many of which we would be happy to highly recommend with glowing reviews.

This is not one of them.

We thought a prix fixe meal would be a great idea - lots of mini courses, lots of flavor, moderate price. The only true thing was that there were many mini courses. The shrimp remoulade has a good sauce (if a bit spicy) but the shrimp was mealy (come on, this is New Orleans - I bought better shrimp at Rouses just yesterday), and the salad was frozen. Ok, perhaps the soup...

The soup was warm, but lacked flavor. Waiter suggested there was crab in there, but if there was ever crab in there it left a long time ago. Sauce was weak and not appealing. Ah well, perhaps the salad...

Pleasant surprise - best part of the meal. Small, sure, but the dressing tasted pretty good and seemed home made. Allright, hope springs eternal...

Fish was, simply put, awful. The measly amount of sauce (supposedly a burre blanc with pineapple) barely could change the bland and slightly unfresh taste of the redfish (and my guess was the pineapples came from a can). The crusted part was a little oily and added nothing to the fish. The potatoes were a step up from Shoney's.

To be fair, my wife really enjoyed her filet mignon (without butter) and thought the vegetables were satisfactory.

Bread pudding with bananas dessert was mediocre. This is New Orleans, and bread puddings can be a source of pride, not to mention a wonderfully sweet and pleasant end to a delicious meal. Not only would I not write home about this one, it seemed like the cooks phoned this one in.

I had two beers, my wife a champagne and glass of wine. Total bill $122. That's right, that's not a typo. And that doesn't include a tip. The waiter was accommodating and cordial enough, but only apologized about our comments concerning the food.

There are a 100 other restaurants in New Orleans where $122 ($140 with tip) can buy you a fantastic meal (and good times!), and I'd be happy to share these places with anyone. But I will never go back to Tujagues again. They can't blame Mardi Gras, can't blame a busy weekend, and can't blame some freak accidents - it was just bad (again, excepting my wife's filet mignon).

Just keep walking...

French Quarter Foodelicious

Not only do you get the sounds of New Orleans right outside the door, but you walk into a historical past. One of the best atmospheres to enjoy a nice cocktail at there unbelievable bar, or sit down to a fabulous meal of local cuisine with a little flair in each item the wonderful service brings you. I find the brisket to be the best in the world. The Bon Femme is a family size plate of fried chicken cooked to perfection with garlic and onions and scalloped potato fries. A dining experience everyone must try.

brisket sandwich at the bar

I went for the brisket sandwich, which is served at the bar. I have no idea if the restaurant is good, probably? Maybe? Don't know. The brisket sandwich at the bar though: really really good. A sturdy french roll with plenty of tender, not too fatty brisket smothered in a tomato based, aggressively peppery horseradish sauce. Better than the sum of its parts.

Not as bad as it could be

I have visited NOLA many, many times and always passed by this place as a crappy tourist trap/food place. I had a pretty respectable meal here, during Mardi gras of all times, the gumbo was pretty good (not great) and your safe with oysters and boiled crawfish.

Not a top shelf place, but I thought not as bad as others. If you want a really great, memorable meal, got to NOLA in the Quarter or Ireans.

elementary school cafeteria food

If you have never traveled, never had good food, and long for the food served in elementary school cafeterias, then you may love this place. To those that are sick of reading glowing reviews of backwards, mediocre at best American cuisine, please don't waste your time or money on this shockingly bad restaurant. Our meal consisted in part of turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce perfectly emulating the spirit of an open faced turkey sandwich in a truckstop.

Solidly good creole cuisine

I felt compelled to write this review solely because of the attacks against Tujague's. Don't expect a dinner that is going to change your life...chances are, you'll probably have a better dish elsewhere if you're visiting for a few days. However, my wife and I (who have lived around New Orleans for the past five years) thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. The shrimp remoulade was good, the brisket was very good, the gumbo was excellent, the entrees were very good (my wife had the crawfish etoufee while I had the chicken with creole sauce), and the bread pudding was very good/excellent. Overall it was very good. To those of you complaining about a bad meal, from what I know about and have experienced at Tujague's, you probably had a freak bad experience. It happens. As I said before, you can find a better dish in New Orleans, but it's hard to find five courses that are this solid.

Worst food I""ve ever eaten in the French Quarter

We live in the New Orleans area and went there becauseout of town requested it. The food is terrible. Yes it is typical cajun cuisine, but the gumbo was the worst I've ever eaten and the crawfish etouffe was uneatable. The waiter stood in the middle of the noisey room and recited the fixed menu to everyone. There are many good places in the French Quarter to eat, but this is not one of them.

Classic New Orleans

Tujagues was one of the only traditional New Orleans meals we were able to find. We had a lot of great food in New Orleans, but this was a really good treat. The crawfish etoufee and gumbo was outstanding.

Be hungry

The prix fixe menu is pricy, but you get enough in the five courses to make it a good value, and the food is excellent. Be hungry, or you will not be able to enjoy it all.
