NOLA's best

For our money, the best experience, service and food quality in NOLA. Ask for Teddy J. as your server. Atmosphere is very nice, but not stuffy and the food is great.



THE most romantic place I have EVER been!

The Court of Two Sisters is without a doubt the most romantic restaurant I have ever been! My husband and I have eaten there everytime we have gone to New Orleans. The food is excellent and we were treated like the legendary ladies and gentlemen of the wealthy "Old South". The only thing missing was the horse and carriage waiting out front. It is a must when visiting the city.




If you are looking for exquisite dining with a casual atmoshpere, this is the place! I was so impressed with the service and the food, not to mention the history was very interesting. When you go, because I know you will, you must try the Turtle Soup!! It's "Slap Yo' Mamma" good! ;)

Disappointing Valentines Day Meal

I went to the restaurant with my girlfriend for Valentine's day. I had been there before shortly after Katrina and it was practically deserted. This time they turned people away who didn't had reservations (even though there were empty tables around us the entire meal. I would say our experience was average, although for the price and reputation I would expect outstanding. I asked for a Reisling wine, and was given one, without benefit of a wine list or choice. the Paper menu was torn, something I'd expect from a basic dinner, not the COURT OF TWO SISTERS. Our waiter was young and struggled opening the wine. The appetizers were good, but I thought it was obvious my date and I were going to share them, he failed to offer any additional plates. Overall disappointing for Valentines day at that price.



5 star New Orleans Food & Atmosphere

5 Star food, great service...the nicest in town, romantic atmosphere but mostly add it all together and you get what my parents use to call the real New Orleans Cusine.

This place is a must for anyone traveling to New Orleans. Just came back & had brunch there. Not only did I have a great brunch here - I can't believe that I ate turtle soup!!! Every item was amazing!!! Have the bread pudding and you will be convinced that you died & went to heaven.

Lovely brunch atmosphere

My husband and I recently were in New Orleans and he insisted we ""find this restaurant with a lovely courtyard"" for lunch. He had dined there once before years ago with a group of people and could not remember the name. We walked around and finally he found it and I am so glad we did!!!! This is a lovely place to have a slow lunch. The courtyard was beautiful and the lunch buffet was yummy! I normally am not a ""buffet"" person, but was impressed with the quality and variety the restaurant had to offer. Great mimosa to go along with lunch too! It was expensive, I was a little surprised when we received our check, but my husband and I enjoyed it so what the heck.

Decent Food, Beautiful Atmosphere, Horrible Service

I am a local who frequently brought my out-of-town friends and relatives to Two Sisters. The last time I made reservations for a party of ten, I specified that I needed indoor dining (I was on medication at the time that made me prone to sunburn.)

My husband and I arrived separately from the rest of our party. We were seated in the courtyard and our waiter served us drinks. Our other friends never showed up. I asked the waiter to move us to another table, preferably indoors. He suggested we wait a little longer. I am assuming he didn't want to lose the large ticket and gratuity related to a larger party.

Finally, my husband and I decided something had delayed our friends and decided to leave. When we went through the restaurant we found our friends....seated at another table and nearly finished with their meal! When I complained to the management I was neither offered an apology or compensation of any kind. The manager went so far as to say the mix up was MY fault since I didn't own a cel phone and couldn't call my friends to find out where they were. After an angry exchange he grudgingly comped the champagne my friends had ordered.

I have not dined there since nor do I have any intention of doing so.

Great place for weekend brunch!!!

The daily jazz brunch buffet is worth it's weight in Gold. It offers more than 80 items, including traditional breakfast foods, cold salads, soup, fruit, boiled seafood, dessert and more. We went on NBA All-Star weekend and the place was crowded.I love the Sweet Potato Salad .On the weekends, a special station makes eggs Benedict and omelets to order. I had the seaford omelet and it was excellent and the bread pudding was the bomb. Brunch wouldn't be the same without Two Sisters' signature mimosas. 2 of those and forget it. I love this place and will be back.

Jambalaya is soooooooooo goooooooooddddddddd

Best chicken and sausage jambalaya I've ever tasted. I unfortunately have not had the experience of the Brunch. It is a must go place when visiting New Orleans.

This place is a must go place to eat. If you like cajun or creole food this is even better. This place is what New Orleans is about. If you want to know about New Orleans and you just got in town. Go here for Brunch!!!!!!!!!!!! With the jazz and the Buffett Brunch you will know what New Orleans is about just going to The Court of Two Sisters. That place is a must go when you eat in New Orleans!!!!!!!!! gO THEN YOU WRITE A REVIEW AND TELL ME!!!!!!!! I JUST LEFT THERE ATTENDING THE ESSENCE MUSIC FEST 07 AND I WAS IMPRESSED!!!!!!!!!!!!

fun brunch place

i truly enjoy this courtyard with a nice jazz band playing as you brunch. it is a bit pricey if you don't eat all that much but it is, after all, a buffet and one could, in theory, get ones money's worth. that being said, here are my faves from the buffet: the bacon was spiced, which i enjoyed. i also enjoyed the andouille sausage, the creamed spinach and the eggplant. i did not enjoy the mushrooms, which was a bit too vinegary. i thought the biscuit and the cornbread were ok. i also though the crawfish and shrimp (steamed, i think) were just ok. the bananas foster was excellent, especially when paired with the homemade vanilla ice cream and topped with the praline sauce. that dessert was just divine! (of course, you can eat them separately but you have the option to mix and match.) the oreo cake was just ok although my friend thought it was pretty good. the fudge-like brownie was also good although a bit too sweet for brunch. there were more goodies to try but unfortunately, i could only eat so much.... although i did enjoy my brunch very much (and i must say that our server was great -- he was prompt with the mimosas and to clear our dirty plates and was very good with recommending and explaining the food), i would probably try new restaurants on my next visit to new orleans.

I ate poached eggs!

I always envisioned poached eggs as nasty, but much to my surprise, the creole eggs benedict was to die for. The mimosas were good and the service was great. It is well worth the cost, but I do recommend making reservations early because for the Jazz brunch they go fast! We really enjoyed the food and the jazz. There was so much to choose from that we were just sick when we left...sick in a good way--from having stuffed ourselves.

Nothing but Hype

We recently visited this ""up-scale"" restaurant and were extremely disappointed. It all started with the ""garlic"" bread they brought out which was potent enough to drive away any ""vampire"" you might encounter in the city. I'm not sure any one could actually eat more than a morsel. Our waiter did not explain the menu (you can do a pre-fix) or make any recommendations. After tasting the wine I selected and giving my approval, the waiter simply put it down on our table without pouring (we were 20 mintues into our dining experience). At this point, we get the maitre'd involved, only to have him be ""offended"" by bringing the lousy service to his attention. Overall, it's all hype.

Perfect Bruch - Loved it

LOVED Court of Two Sisters. It was my wedding day and I wanted a nice brunch for my family and bridesmaids... there were 17 of us. They set a wonderful table outside for all 17 of us.... the service was excellent the food was delicious and the jazz band just added icing on the cake.

The mimosas were reasonably priced as well. I can't imagine a better brunch and for $30 a person we were pampered and spoiled. The variety of food was amazing... try the seafood omlette which is topped with hollandaise sauce and don't miss the bananas foster...

User review by visitor674

Jazz??? Where? They were playing a taped classical music. Everything was very, very average. Yes, they have a huge menu, but was it all that good? No. It was raining, so could not seat outside. The room is big (not romantic at all) and looked like a cheap diner: starting from the silverware, plates to the room itself.. For the money we paid there (more than a $100 without the dessert) it was very, very average and not worth it. From the service to food.

An all-around terrific experience for us

Before dinner, we found the bartender friendly and attentive. Once seated in the courtyard, we were charmed by the wait staff. Both assigned to our table were warm and pleasant without being too familiar. Prompt service without being rushed. Our meal was marvelous. Perhaps not haute cuisine, but delicious and enhanced by the wonderful time we were having.

While in New Orleans, we got a sense that many working in the service industry did so begrudgingly. At the Court of Two Sisters, we were welcomed by exceptional, gracious people and a quality meal. It was a beautiful evening.

A previous reviewer intimated this location may dupe unsuspecting tourists. We may have been visiting New Orleans but we are quite well traveled and far from being easily dazzled. This stop is a ""must"" on our list for our friends and family as well as the next time we visit the city.

Tourist Trap

There is very little at the Court of Two Sisters that resembles fine dining. We did not have the privilege of sitting in the courtyard, and instead were ferried to a dining room that resembled a VFW banquet hall. The silverware and napkins are probably 15 years old, and the dishware is from the ""Greek Diner"" collection. The Caesar salad, prepared tableside, was more of a distraction than a novelty...both for us and the neighboring table. The icing on the cake was terrible, lukewarm coffee. The moral of the story: There are plenty of great restaurants in New Orleans. Court of Two Sisters is not one of them.
