My fish on eggplant dish was delicious and my friends also enjoyed their dinners. We ordered some local cocktails from the bar and had room for the good desserts. The dining room was very elegantly appointed, and is located in the garden where the after dark illuminations are well worth a final stroll after dinner. Since our tour of the... More

I love Latil's Landing for dining. We had a party of 9, so we got a whole roome to ourselves. I loved it because it is in the original part of the home. The chance to dine there was breathtaking thinking back on the history of this magnificent place.

Long time patron, so sad, angry, and disappointed. We have always loved going to Latil's Restaurant. When family and friends would come in town, this was the restaurant we always took them to. Don't understand what has happened. It is still beautiful, charming, and the service is still the best in LA, but the menu and food is way below... More

You will be happy to know that the menu is being changed, and will have many of our original dishes with slight changes. There will never be Cauliflower nor broccoli. We will be totally Southern and Louisiana, as we previously were. It will be a Tasting menu, but I think you will like it a lot. We have been tinkering... More

Latils is a small restaurant with big taste. The atmosphere was romantic, the service was spectacular, and the food was wonderful! This was our second visit her and it did not disappoint!

Tonight was likely our fifth or sixth visit to Latil's Landing in an equal number of years and very likely our last, based on the set 7 course Tasting Menu as the only option now. It's a special occasion spot for us, dress up and pony up for an excellent meal in a lovely setting. We made reservations for four... More

I am so sorry you did not appreciate our Tasting Menu at Latil's Landing. We think it is a great menu with many options for each course, and allows our guests to truly enjoy the experience we have created at Houmas House. I hope on your next visit, you will try our Carriage House Restaurant, open 7 days a week... More

A recent visit to Latil's while visiting Louisiana was somewhat disappointing. I remember excellent service and wonderful food from previous visits but, although the service was still friendly, courteous and attentive, the meal fell a little short. They seem to have made some changes that I personally think are not for the good. Hope it will be better next time!

We enjoyed a wonderful five course meal at Latil's, living up to its reputation as a fine dining location. Chef Joe Dicapo discussed how he is updating the menu with even more locally sourced ingredients. We sampled the Filet Mignon and the Seabass entrees afar stuffing ourselves not he wonderful bread and butter. The crab and mango cake was taste... More

We had dinner here while staying at the Houmas House. Service was very friendly and personal. The 7 course tasting menu provided a wide variety of southern dishes to sample.

This whole facility is awesome. Buffet was very authentic south Louisiana food. Crawfish ettoufee was very tasty and fried catfish well done. Gumbo so so but tasty. Seafood pasta also good. Reasonably priced. Good service. Be sure to check out the Turtle Bar.
