Zagat Mentions of Cafe Degas

Cafe Degas is truly a French restaurant experience. Outdoor cafe-style seating, French cuisine, and exceptional service make for a great dining experience. It is probably not for everyone, and if you’re seeking a fine dining experience you may be disappointed. If you’re looking for an upscale French cafe you’ll love it! We tried the veal and hangar steak, and both were cooked perfectly, and seasoned well. No, it’s not Cajun and creole cooking, so don’t expect those flavors - it is traditional French cooking, and they do an excellent job. Just remember it is called Cafe Degas, and expect French cuisine and great service, and you will thoroughly enjoy this restaurant. Go expecting a lavish dining room and Cajun/Creole and you may be disappointed. Tip: Great date spot, not a particularly great place to bring the children.

This place is wonderful! So cute and quaint outside with great lights and trees and other plants. It's situated on a corner so from the outside it doesn't look that big but there's plenty of space inside. The food was absolutely delicious and I loved every bit of it!

Can't really say I was super impressed. The food for the price was so so. Not very creative or competitive for the current culinary explosion happening in Nola. But hey... If you're a neighborhood staple I guess it doesn't really matter? Service was great. Wine was excellent.
