    We were seated on time and the waiter was excellent. Have eaten here previously and ordered the lasagna along with meatballs. Both were delicious.

    We celebrated our 48th wedding anniversary in New Orleans this week and had a very special dinner at the Palace Cafe. We were greeted and after a very short wait we were seated. Our server acknowledged our special occasion and took our drink orders. Our cocktails arrived quickly and we ordered a crabmeat cheesecake for an appetizer which was fabulous! We had a Weirlein Salad and a wonderful shrimp & crabmeat pasta dish for our entrees. We finished our meal with a bananas foster made at our table. This restaurant has never failed to impress us! We will definitely return on our next trip to new Orleans!

    The food and service was outstanding. I had the tilefish and it was phenomenal. My companions had the scalibut—combo of halibut and scallops, and a creole fish dish. The bread pudding was absolutely delicious. Marlon, our server was incredibly knowledgeable and gave the spot on recommendations. Will go back to GW Fins and request Marlon as our server anytime!!

    The food and service were excellent. Glenn was our waiter and he was great with recommendations. I highly recommend the bbq shrimp -- the shrimp was large and the sauce was delish! We would go back!

    Went to Luke for happy hour and early dinner on a recommendation from a friend. The food is outstanding. We shared Peruvian scallops, tuna tartare and crispy Brussels sprouts. The scallops were especially delicious. Drinks were also excellent and you cannot beat the value during happy hour.

Discover New Orleans

French, Spanish and Creole influences evolved New Orleans cuisine into a genre all its own. Combine Gulf coast seafood, a butter-based sauce and Cajun spices, and you’re looking at a classic Nola dish. Take the famed crawfish boil, for instance, which locals advise is best eaten as a family. In the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, the restaurant industry banded together to support their city in the wake of serious devastation. New restaurants began opening their doors, and today you’ll find a wealth of cuisines that span the classics to modern reinventions to everything in between.
