General Info
Café Sbisa, established in 1899 and the third oldest fine-dining establishment in the French Quarter, is proud to re-open under the direction of a new team to once again offer the highest quality French-Creole cuisine in a welcoming, historical setting that both locals and tourists will appreciate. Spearheading the new Café Sbisa are Mr. Craig Napoli, who successfully ran the notable restaurant from 1992 - 2005 when Hurricane Katrina devastated the city, and Chef Alfred Singleton, who met Craig when he started working for him at the former Café Sbisa as a prep cook. Now, the unique venue will once again open its doors to serve classic local fare like Turtle Soup, Louisiana Blue Crab Cakes and BBQ Shrimp using the freshest, locally-sourced seafood and produce. While many restaurants tout “fresh and local”, Sbisa means it, as the Napoli family owns their own seafood dock and distribution business in Hopedale, Louisiana. The Sbisa team has been diligently working to renovate the notorious building directly across the street from the French Market while ensuring its old-world charm is maintained, including a hand-carved mahogany bar dating back to 1903. Patrons will still be able to view famous artist and one-time Sbisa regular George Dureau’s painting above the bar; the mural of French Quarterites including Sbisa employees, regulars and Dureau himself has shined for decades and will continue to be an artistic centerpiece. We look forward to meeting you during dinner or weekend brunch and are confident you'll walk away feeling pleasantly satisfied, having just had one of your most memorable dining experiences inside our four walls.

User review by zudnic

This was the best entree we had on our trip to New Orleans. My girlfriend is still talking about hers three weeks later. I ordered a pork loin with chipotle apple bbq sauce that was outrageously good. The entrees were fabulous and made us forget our appetizers - the wedge salad was downright uninspired, and the gumbo was average at best. On the plus side my entree came in an agreeably large portion, a nice surprise at an upscale place.

The ambiance is a little chaotic, with closely placed tables and a jazz band miked a bit too loud, but this is part of the N.O. experience. Our table was wobbly and I had to get down on my hands and knees to place a spacer under one of the legs.

Service was good. Our server was very accomodating and upbeat.

Recommend this place for their fabulous entrees.

Best food and service in the Big Easy

If you want the best meal in the Big Easy, then do NOT miss out on this place!

I have not ever had such a fantastic meal as I experienced at this friendly New Orleans cafe.

My fish was moist, tasty and almost more than I was able to finish. Had I not found taste buds I didn't even know existed, I would have never been able to enjoy all I found on my plate.

I can not even begin to give credit to the staff of Cafe Sbisa which they most certainly deserve! From the time the reservation was made, to being greeted at the door, and treated by the wait staff (her name is Jen) as if there were no other people in the establishment; I and my associate felt as if we were royalty!
