We had Clesi's cater a bachelor party dinner at a house we rented and it worked out perfect. We all came from out of state (mostly from the West Coast) and wanted to try a Crawfish boil. Even though we were told that it might not be possible, given the unusually cold weather while we were there - they made it happen. It was awesome. Well worth it and a cool chance to taste some tasty authentic Louisiana cuisine. They also made us a some Jambalaya, which was pretty amazing as well.

Came here in 2016. The owner was very accommodating. He had Robin Hood Men in Tights playing on the TV and offered to put our beers in his cooler to keep them cold while we ate. Best corn and crawfish I've ever eaten. Left his kitchen guy a couple of the brews we couldn't finish. Will definitely come back next time I find myself in NOLA.

Simple seafood menu, affordable, tasty. I had crawfish for the first time - really tasty and fun. It’s obvious why Clesi’s is famous for crawfish. Crawfish are messy, like eating lobster and unexpectedly spicy. The restaurant is small but it has a huge patio - I recommend sitting out there if the weather allows it. No parking here, find something on a nearby side street. Most items available for take out, except for crawfish. Worth a visit!
