We loved this little restaurant. Its good for Lunch and for Dinner. Great cocktails in the Carousel Bar before and then topped it off with a fabulous dinner. We sat by the window and watched all of the people walking from the St. Patrick's Parade. Great people watching...terrific food...and we are foodies. Not your typical heavy Cajun Fair but a... More

Had a lovely quiet meal here on a Tuesday evening. The menu is great and the staff know their stuff. Had the pork belly and the muskovy duck. Dwayne was charming and helpful all evening.

The avocado stack and redfish was ok, grilled shrimp and pompano excellent. Our waiter repeatedly spilled wine on the table and on our phones without any care or apologies. This ruined our dining experience.

My waitress (Deanna) was great, and service was friendly, but the support service was terrible: table was never bussed from the previous diner (ever), food on the floor under my feet, no honey available, no sugar in the bowl, and leftover cream in a dirty vessel for my coffee. Food quality was fair to good: over "medium" eggs were actually... More

I cam solo on a week night with no reservation and was accommodated by the friendly staff here. Really enjoyed my char-grilled oyster appetizer and also their gumbo. Would like to come back and try the entrees. Just to full that night. Very nice setting.

The Criollo Restaurant, situated inside the handsome, tall, street-side windows in the Monteleone Hotel, was absolutely our favorite dining experience from all the many excellent restaurants in which we dined during our recent week in New Orleans. What a surprise--we had no idea how impressed we would be with Criollo. You can imagine genteel power lunches happening here--or that, 150... More

Checked into hotel last night came down for breakfast this morning. Had to wait for hostess to finish reading her magazine. Finally asked if I can eat breakfast - so poor start- she set me at table, read entire menu..waited. Then noticed table had food crumbs & used bread plate. Waited. Decided it had been 5 minutes & things weren't... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
