Gumbo Shop Restaurant Reviews
The atmosphere is relaxing...the food is unforgetable!
Wonderful Creole cuisine in a beautiful & elegant setting, inexpensively priced.
Superb food at a great value. Conveniently located in the French Quarter. Sit by the window and people watch, or in the courtyard during spring or fall.
Get the Fresh Fish St. Peter - it is not on the menu, but it is fantastic! Also the best Shrimp Creole in town. This is the place to come for authentic recipes.

Pecan pie for dessert is a must have.
by Baptiste R.
Nice bit of theatre history for Tennessee Williams fans
by Jeremy F.
My favorite is the boudain and all of their gumbos.
by Nimesh P.
To damn crowded need more space
by Dangelis P.
Oyster artichoke gumbo is fantastic!
by Allison M.
Blackened fish po'boy was stellar!
by Leigh K.
Gumbo is of course excellent but the crawfish étouffée is some of the beat in NOLA. Order a lot of side portions to try it all and ask to sit in the cozy alcove on the back side of the courtyard.
by Kim K.
Great Vegetarian Gumbo. Was too stuffed to try the bread pudding. :)
by Addie G.
Luv the bread pudding. Rice & red beans is ok but jambalaya... Sorry guys but Royal House's one is much better
Blackened Chicken with Garlic potatoes and Cajun corn. Mmmmm
by David E.
Wonderful seafood gumbo, crab cakes and service. We will return. Ask for Brittany, she was friendly and answered all our questions.
by Gail L.
There is food for vegetarians too !!
by Puja P.
The alligator sausage is a must. I grew up in Louisiana and have only had gator fried — this is way better!
Sazarec perfectly balanced !
by Mona M.
The Sazerac is a must here.
by Ross G.
Best shrimp creole and jambalaya I have ever had.
by Ange M.
The bathroom sink is reverse what you'd think: left for cold, right for hot. Consider yourself warned...

Gambit's Best of New Orleans: Best Gumbo
by Gambit New Orleans
Gumbo wasn't so great. Too much thickening agent and gloopy. Not much flavour either. The service and the grand building was great though.
by Peter M.
The chicken andouille gumbo is phenomenal and the bread is mouthwatering. This is a wonderful place to eat
by Chet A.
Gumbo Trio is awesome!
by Steve H.
Best gumbo you will have in New Orleans. Friendly and fun staff. Great location near Jackson Square. The wait is worth it.
by Curt R.
Excellent food. Great vegetarian choices!
by Terri S.
He food is good. I don't recommend the banana daiquiri.
by Kimberly S.
Blackened Chicken w garlic mashed pot and Cajun corn. The best dish
by David E.
by Hard R.
The complete Créole dinner is a great deal. Everything was delicious, with highlights being the shrimp gumbo and the whiskey bread pudding. The Hurricane was a deliciously strong drink too.
by Eddie Y.
Heads up: the closing time on 4sq is wrong. They're really open until 10:30pm. Also, the freaking best gumbo and crawfish étouffée eveeeer!!
by Daniel R.
Bread pudding is to die for!
by Brad J.
The blackened catfish, gumbo, and boudin I highly recommend. The crawfish Tasso pasta is inconsistent quality depending on the cook, so don't get IMO. Not too loud, not quiet either.
by John B.
There is at least one vegetarian entree. Tonight: white beans with chopped onions and red pepper & rice.
by Linda M.
both the vegan and vegetarian gumbo are fantastic! vegan gumbo is not on the menu so be sure to ask for it.
by babs o.
Great food, reasonable prices!
by LuckypooZa !.
by Jon B.
Pretty much everything was great at this place. Gumbo, alligator sausage, jambalaya, all amazing!
by Jason H.
Love Kim the waitress here! #NoLAtrip
by James H.
Got scolded for leaving a bit of gumbo in my bowl ... gave me more bread and said clean your plate before I take it! ... awesome and fun waitress!
by James H.
The bread pudding and icing (get on the side) dissolve in your mouth like spun sugar. The bread tastes like hot cookie dough. The icing was a box of confectioners sugar in a vat of butter. Decadent!
by Jeanne D.
Amazing Food and Great prices, the staff is also GREAT! be sure to have at least one meal here
by Carolyn M.
Bread pudding is a must have! Amazing
by Todd S.
The chicken gumbo and the combination platter were really good. Don't be afraid if there's a big line up, it moves pretty fast. The fresh fruit daiquiris were also delicious.
by Patrick S.
The vegan gumbo is amazing!
by Patrick S.
Server appeared to hate his job and life but the food was great. Had sides of the etouffee, seafood gumbo, corn, and oh my goodness that praline sundae was divine!
Athena was great. Great food + great service.
by Nicolas C.
Vegetarians rejoice: you can have gumbo too! Mix in the pepper blend and hot sauce though, it's a bit bland as is.
by Erica R.
The seafood gumbo is amazing!!
by Paul S.
try jambalaya, po-boys, red beans and rice with smoked sausage(a new orleans tradition) and more.. they are delicious!
by Hazal Y.
Try the Turkey And Sausage Gumbo - A great start to a day of adventure! (via @Foodspotting)
by Suzan H.
Get the today's special.... Had the tuna medium, grilled, perfectly done.
by Maxim A.
Crawfish étouffée - 'nough said.
They have a daily vegetarian entree. And sit in the courtyard!

The jambalaya and the seafood and okra gumbo is delicious!
by Su Lin O.
Try the fresh fruit daiquiris! So delicious, you can taste the fruit!
by 👑Carly R.
Hottest hand driers on the planet in then bathrooms. Oh ya...the food is amazing too!
by Brian B.
Gumbo was good but not great. Not much sausage in it. Try the jambalaya and a frozen daquiri (we had strawberry & melon- one of the best drinks we've ever had!)
by Traci D.
Go for the gusto order the Creole dinner.
by Toni C.
Have the "Catfish St. Peter" Its like sex in your mouth
by Phantomluvr L.
Raise your City iQ: Celery, Bell Peppers, and Onions is the holy trinity which makes a great Gumbo.
Warm bread pudding! Creole dinner - chicken andouille gumbo, crawfish étouffée, macque choux corn. Soooooooo good!
by Ashish K.
Ask for Ms. Gaynelle
Red Beans and Rice. Enough said!!! Get it!!
Bloody Mary's and chicken andouille are AWESOME.
by Mauricio B.
I used to love this place went today sat there for 20 minutes no service. Yeah I will not be going back there were 10 servers standing around and yet nobody could take my order.
by Jackie F.
The turnip greens have a nice crisp flavor and the red beans and rice is phenomenal!
by Paula L.

The name & atmosphere drew us in but the food was very mediocre. Disappointed not spicy the jumbalaya was dry & small portions but the po boys were huge
