    The food is wonderful, but we really felt as though we were bothering the staff. We asked for things multiple times and still had to wait. Food came out all at once and one in our party didn’t get his salad until everyone else was finished eating. Our waiter seemed entirely uninterested, as did the hostess when we asked for drink refills, over and over again. The place was not crowded, so I do not understand why service was so frustrating. It’s a shame, because the food is really good.

    Service was really nice however, three people did not get their entrées because the kitchen was understaffed and servers were bringing our food to other customers. So we just decided to end the meal and walk away. With the food that was there that we did receive was wonderful. Cori, our waiter was very kind, however, it is a shame that the restaurant was understaffed.

    My husband was singing praises for your char grilled oysters. He said that they’re better than your competitor that’s located on Iberville St. When we come back to town, you’ll definitely be our first stop for oysters.

    We got to the restaurant at 7pm for reservations for 7:15 at 8:15 we still didn’t get seated and was told they was working on getting a table for our party. When we sat there and watched a larger party than us get sat and then multiple smaller parties get sat because the host didn’t want to put two table’s together after 2 servers tried to get her to and help, We decided to leave at 8:30/8:40

    We were pleasantly surprised by how wonderful this restaurant is! Our server, William, was super attentive and could not have been more pleasant overall. This was the perfect pre-show dinner pick for being close to the Orpheum. We shared an order of chargrilled oysters, which were fantastic - even better than another local place that is "known" for theirs. My companion had the salmon with brussels, and I had corn and crab soup. Delicious!!

    DO NOT SIT AT THE BAR! We booked on Open Table and were able to get in and ahead of a large line. However, we had a table for 4 and there were just 2 of us. We passed along to a group of 4 and we sat at the bar were there were 2 open seats. MISTAKE!!. Bartender was rude, non attentive, and not helpful. Food was Okay but took a long time to come out and we assumed it was because of how busy they were. Not true, the bartender did not put our order in for 15 minutes after we placed. The table we passed along was up and out long before we ate. Maybe it would be better if we sat at a table by the bar was a bad experience.

    We went for revellion this past year and loved it, the food was phenomenal especially the desserts, we have eaten at commanders palace, Brennan’s, Brightson’s, Muriel’s, and many other of the big name places you have to eat at, and in our opinion legacy’s desserts were better. We loved all of them and will go back any time but make sure you definitely save room for dessert at legacy.

    We were a party of 5 that had reservations for Christmas Day. The food was delicious, the servers friendly, and the value was great! Service was a tad slow, but hey, it was a holiday. Wish they would have had real tablecloths instead of paper. I would definitely eat there again!

    We had a reservation and were seated immediately. There were 2 other tables in the restaurant. It took about 10 mins for a server to come to the table. Leslie took our drink orders and then 5 mins later, another server comes over to say she’d be taking care of us as Leslie was just helping out while she was in the bathroom . Made her aware we had placed a drink order with Leslie. That server again disappears and when Leslie finally arrives with the drinks-we request to keep her. Kind of odd to start. We did oysters, fish, gumbo, crab and corn bisque and the shrimp scampi along with cocktails. The appetizers were good and my husband liked his fish but my shrimp scampi-the worst I have ever had. The noodles were hard and just looked as though they had been cooked in oil. No seasoning, garlic-just hard noodles, tough shrimp and oil. Leslie did mention they could make it again but after the wait of server changes, slower food times etc I just simply asked for lemon to doctor it up. I also knew they wouldn’t take off the bill as the woman at a nearby table refused to eat her meal and was told she could “exchange” but they wouldn’t remove it from her check. First place I’ve ever heard that said especially when she didn’t touch it. But either way just requested lemon. Still was the worst thing I’d had so just ate a few of the tough shrimp in the pasta and that was it. Our server Leslie was so sweet, accommodating and really went above and beyond. Would I recommend? Probably not as I can’t believe they would plate that up and serve but again-we loved our server and reason for the 5 stars for service.

    Smoked salmon dip is the reason I go there. Very good. The “perfectly grilled gulf fish” was dry, and the topping was salty. Tasted as if it was prepped in a large batch and left to sit. Service started out good, but was inconsistent. We arrived late for our reservation, and the manager was accommodating and pleasant.

    The food was amazing!! Server was very nice. He seemed overly busy and it was a bit slow service wise - you don’t want to rush a nice meal - we were there 2 hrs 15 min and it was not because we lingered, it was slow. We ordered wine right away and the bottle took over 20 min to get there. We’d come back because the food was so good. The blackened Redfin was amazing.

    We had such a fantastic meal here. The wait staff was very nice, if a little laid back. We have often eaten in New Orleans & this food was solid. A nice mix of options. Great location. But it was surprisingly empty. We could not figure out why. The kitchen staff & menu were really solid. Hope this place stays because it’s good food & a fun vibe.

    Ate dinner and breakfast. Dinner menu very limited and wines offered on menu not available. Service very slow due to lack of servers. Breakfast selection also was limited and again lack of servers caused very slow service. Ambassador level Marriott Bonvoy and often stay in Renaissance hotels. This food expérience poorest of any Renaissance hotel.

    The hostess was not professional, my reservation was for 5:45 and my party arrived a little early and was told it would be 10 minutes that turned into 30. The wait staff kept getting the order wrong, also 2 of the meals had to be returned because it wasn’t prepared properly. This was the worst dining experience I’ve ever had!

    Food bad. Like bad bad. Well done salmon arrived medium rare. Everything was sloppily plated. Nothing tasted fresh. Burger was almost rubber. Fries were GREAT! Perfectly grilled gulf fish was poorly butchered, sloppily plated, just meh! Lemonade tasted like mop water with artificial lemon juice from the squeezy yellow lemon shaped bottle. Beautiful restaurant but so sad the kitchen and wait staff fail the overall business. They need to revamp the back and front of the house. Server, asked was the salmon not enjoyable. The response was, “it’s not cooked to our liking. We asked for well done.” She said, “That’s your fault for not saying anything!” Wow!!! Bless her and her Elvis side burns!

    Worst dining experience in a long time. I’ve eaten shrimp poor boys all over the South and this establishment served me the worst piece of garbage: shrimp overcooked and hard, bread solid and un edible, drenched in Mayo when I asked for it dry. Service was terrible as I also asked for cocktail sauce and it was long time coming. As waitstaff Chad finally came to table to drop bill, I asked for manager who finally came 20 mins later. His only suggestion: “I can do it over”? Give me a break. By this time both my wife and 15 yo grandson were upset and all of us were tired from a day of tourism so I paid the bill (their food was acceptable) and left. Don’t go to this restaurant!

    Sorry for the bad review. We arrived for our reservation and the host told us they could not honour it. The kitchen was backed up and they would not be able to seat us. We had traveled all day and this was a 9:30 reservation. Being turned away from a restaurant you have reservations at does not leave a great feeling. We will not be giving them a second chance.

    Arrived a few minutes early for our reservation. 4 staff at the host stand, 2 servers, a busser, a bartender all visible. Seated immediately with menus- 20 minutes later, having not been greeted, brought water, or acknowledged in any way - we opted to depart and try and find another place to eat. Disappointing on the service side, as there was plenty of staff.

    We're locals and were on our way to the symphony at the Orpheum. We know Legacy Kitchen from their excellent location out in Metairie, so we figured we'd try the one downtown because it's close to the theater. It is obviously geared toward tourists and that's not what we were looking for.
