The Zagat Review
This century-old "bucket-list" French Quarter "institution" offers "a true New Orleans dining experience" thanks to "decadent" , "utterly superb" (albeit "not cheap" ) French-Creole standards and truth-serum cocktails served by "waiters in dinner jackets" who "have been there for years" ( "take their recommendations seriously" insiders advise); "a place to see old New Orleans society" , the main dining room is "complete with black-and-white tiled floors" , "white tablecloths" and "loud, raucous" "laughter in the air" ; P.S. jackets required after 5 PM and all day Sunday; reservations only accepted upstairs.

It’s not on the menu, but if you ask the right way, the kitchen just might cook up some of their famous fried chicken for you.

Zagat Mentions of Galatoires
Google Reviews
Galatoires is one of the finest dining experiences you will ever find in my great city of New Orleans Louisiana, and that is a tough review to beat. Within my city of which choosing a favorite place to dine is is rather hard to pin point just one, and this is due to the huge number of great places in which to eat. New Orleans is the finest at so many things but in the world of greatest eatery's... We are hands down the BEST in this field. Galatoires is one of the TOP leaders in this area of finest dining in the world I feel.

Unparalleled dining experience. It's a step back in time in the best possible way. Incredible wait staff. Perfectly prepared food. Sublime experience. One of the true treasures of New Orleans.

It's been over ten years since I've eaten at Galatoire's, and nothing has been lost in the interim. Absolutely sublime Creole food served in high style by extremely talented waitstaff. It's not cheap, but definitely worth the time and money. Highly recommended.
