  • kelgrant6 reviewFor an authentic New Orleans experience, Galatoire's still is the best of the old New Orleans restaurants. If you don't see what you want on the menu, they will make every effort to accommodate you. Service is great and food divine!

  • highhouse reviewthis is by far one of the best restraunts in New Orleans. This is 5 STAR dining all the way. Yankess be sure not to be caught dead in Galatoire's during the summer time in a dark suit. Go get yourself a sear sucker suit and become a part of a New Orleans tradition.

  • greekgirl reviewI love this place! The wait staff is very attentive and knowledegable, and they are glad to answer any questions about the extensive menu. Wonderful classic New Orleans seafood dishes and sinful desserts...mmmmmm.

  • JimBaymiller reviewNot only is this one of the finest restaurants in America, it is probably the most consistant kitchen I've ever encountered. Very little has changed since I first ate there in 1961, except the prices!. My waiter has even been there since 1969! All seafood will be memorable, esp. the Trout Margeury, the Trout Almondine, and the Broiled Pompano-all World-class dishes perfectly representing true Haute Creole cooking. The Shrimp Remoulade is better than anybody else's. Also try the Oysters en Brochette, the Fried soft-shelled crabs, the Crabmeat Maisson, and the Gumbo. Also great are the Potatoes Brabant and the Green Salad with Garlic. Everything is ala carte, and it can add up pretty fast, but individual items are really reasonably priced, considering the quality of the food. It is a very memorable spot. They are open for lunch, but the menu is the same all day. No reservations- best time to go is mid-afternoon. Also wonderful French Bread and the best coffee in the city.
