My whole experience was incredible. The staff were incredibly friendly and thoughtful (thanks Dorian! ) , the ambiance was great (we sat outside in the courtyard), the food was quick and very well priced. I had the gumbo (pictured below) and it was so good (the person with me had the red beans and rice which was also amazing). I was looking forward to Cajun cuisine and was so happy to find it here! Highly recommend it to any travelers, one of the best places we visited in New Orleans.

I polled our group of 5 people and we collectively agreed there was no redeeming qualities from our over priced, bland meals. They cram people as tightly as can be, have inadequate restrooms for the amount of people using it. Once you order, every one of their southern dishes are priced sky-high, with portions that are too small & completely without any flare or love and attention. Particularly bad was a blackened fish dish, served as basically as could be, by itself on a single plate... no better presentation or taste than even a novice cook could do. The Jambalaya was dry, bland. The gumbo was the best part, but not deserving of coming here and for the prices, which were trying to indicate it's superiority and popularity, but is not deserving of its stature. We spent $90 between the five of us & it compared to a better version elsewhere for almost half that price. I absolutely am baffled this place has the high rating it does. Our meal couldn't have gone worse. To fix this: please reconfigure your seating, your plan for waiting in line for the restroom, completely rework your recipes to make it stand out, for those prices there should be considerably more presentation and atmosphere. I don't expect this place will make these steps, but it would be the right thing to do. We were very disappointed. They did take one $9 meal off, but we felt further complaining wouldn't help as it was wrong in so many ways.

There's an indoor seating area in the restaurant and an outdoor seating area in an enclosed garden. The waiter was amazing! He recommended the gumbo combination for me, which wasn't on the menu. My favorite was the turkey hot sausage gumbo. FYI: The restaurant is open on Mondays. In Yelp, it says the restaurant is closed on Mondays, but that's false.

Our dinner at the Gumbo Shop was great!! Juan was an incredible server, he worked hard to make sure we had a great experience. I have dietary restrictions and he walked me through the menu and even checked ingredients on items that were specials not on the menu. Their gluten free menu includes a good selection of Cajun food which isn’t always easy to find on gluten free menus! We were very satisfied with our visit. The fresh fruit daiquiris were a special touch too!
06:44 06 Feb 20
Absolutely lovely! Our servers were great, super friendly and funny, and very helpful. As a vegetarian I was very pleased to finally get to try Gumbo, and their veggie friendly gumbo was fantastic. Best meal I had in NOLA. Also, their creamed spinach was perfect. The photo is a bit green and boring, but 10/10, delicious.

Celebrated a close friend's birthday. The meal and drinks were amazing, perhaps the best I have had. The French bread was fresh warm and perfect, The barbecue shrimp and crab cake appetizers were awesome. The "Bourbon Street Flasher" drink was so good, and the meals were top notch. Our waiter was professional and attentive. Pricey but well worth it! We will go back next time we visit New Orleans which hopefully is not so long in the future!

Heaven on earth. The food is amazing as is the atmosphere. This is my favorite restaurant in the whole world and the jazz brunch buffet offers some amazing choices like turtle soup (don't knock it till ya try it), fresh Gulf shrimp, prime rib, fresh baked breads, pasta salads, and lots lots more. Overall I think there are 85+ dishes offered, including their famous dessert bananas foster. If you want an authentic NOLA experience Court of Two Sisters is a must.

I love coming here. It is a must do. One really pays for the ambience and history. The food is reminiscent of cafeteria eats. Flavors are kept safely bland and that was a nice change from the heavily seasoned foods in the quarter. One thing I loved are all the cold salad options and how the bar has foods labeled vegan, gluten free, etc.

This place had good bread, but not a lot else to offer. Their food was the quality of olive garden but double the price - all the dishes started at around 30 dollars. Their fish was very average, shrimp was dry, and their grits were mushy rocks. I feel like this would be one of the places that Gordon Ramsay would come in an be like "what the f are u guys doing". I had high expectations for this place that definitely did not get met.
18:19 10 Dec 19
At first I was a little concerned about this place based on other 2 to 3 star reviews, but I was blown away by the customer service and the beautiful courtyard. Guys this is the place to be for Sunday Jazz brunch!!! The Buffett is so good, it had a mix of everything from roast to an amazing sweet potato concoction. The omelet station was very quick, and the weather was a brisk 65 degrees; sunny and cool. Perfect courtyard weather. All and all I would come here again and again.
03:31 07 Feb 20
We got same day reservations on Open Table, and were seated immediately even though we arrived a bit early. Our waitress, Melanie, was outstanding. She had great suggestions on food and answered questions we had about the menu. She was attentive throughout the meal without hovering. The wood grilled red fish was fantastic, and my husband really enjoyed the BBQ oysters. The cocktails were also good. We should have skipped the chocolate bread pudding. It was simply too rich and we could not finish it. I would like to return and try other items on the menu.
20:54 09 Dec 19
Really enjoyed my meal here! Ordered the oysters and the blackened catfish. Oysters were phenomenal, and catfish was tasty. Sat at the bar, and the bartender was marvelous. At the beginning of bourbon street, so I am certain it gets rowdy. Get there early to enjoy a quiet meal
20:22 27 Nov 19
This was an awesome dining experience. The shrimp tasted as though they spent their entire lives swimming in butter! I was a little skeptical about getting grilled but was glad I did. The vegetable medley was a perfect compliment. The service was pretty good as well. This place is on my permanent list when I get back to New Orleans.
13:40 31 Dec 19
OK, it is overpriced - especially the wine. OK, the portions are not very much and you don't get any real sides with your meal (unless ordering extra). BUT, wonderful, tasty, food, great ambiance, and fantastic service. Highly recommend you go there and spend the bit extra to delight your taste buds!
10:05 24 Dec 19
Exceptional food and quality service! I've never been dissatisfied when visiting this gem. The management is amazing yet nothing compares to the service members both front and back of house that make this place the local landmark it has grown to be. Keep it up guys!

Found this bodega on google and was not disappointed...The cashier was really nice and informative... she told us about some of the sandwiches the deli makes and that they deliver... once we returned to our hotel we decided to order the chicken sandwich that the cashier described... we called put in our order and had it in less than 30 minutes... the description she gave of the sandwiches was on point.... My chicken sandwich was AMAZING and had the perfect amount of spice...I will definitely return and order from them again
08:16 09 Feb 20
If you like to spend $8 on bread with a slice of pastrami and some pickle juice by all means, order from here, otherwise I'd suggest going to Erin Rose or a local toilet.
09:07 18 Jan 20
omg i haven't had them in a year and im literally having tingling goosebumps while eating 🤤 the potato salad and im sober #NomNom sooo FAB & those fat chunky fries too 🤤⚜️🥰 1-18-2020 3:00am

Decent spot to grab something quick. Not much of a selction, it is what is🤷♂️
03:34 23 May 19
The Black lady that works the register at night is top notch. She's amazing at what she does in this tiny bodega. Listen let me be honest ain't nothing special about this place. It's lived in. It's authentic, but far from a deli in my opinion. I also think the menu is massive and unnecessary. Pick 10 things and be great at them. There is a small store. I think the stuff on the shelf is stale. But it could be fresh under the dust. Only buy the food in the kitchen and check the dates on everything else. Not saying I ever had a problem. I am telling you to make sure.
01:24 02 Nov 19
Awesome place to shop for toys, candy, but an amazing place to grab a nice homestyle meal. There is a Cracker Barrel in the store.
23:23 27 Oct 19
If you want to see the collision of human culinary imagination and pecans, come here!
17:17 04 Jan 20
Cute typical store for tourists and souvenirs
01:30 05 Oct 19
Good praline. Customer service is nonexistent here
19:18 26 Jan 20
Lots of selections but hought prices were high.
16:13 18 Dec 19
What a cool spot, they are funky, vibey and do all the right things. It's a quaint little shop but it needs to be talked about. The entire aesthetic of there literally being an orange couch and white everywhere else is awesome. Their coffee is a bit on the stronger side but its delicious! (I prefer it)
23:46 09 Feb 20
Friends lined up for coffee in a very long queue. I asked them to order my coffee as I went to the restroom.Basically got yelled at by someone at the register in front of the whole shop to purchase coffee first. I tried to quietly explain that I was purchasing coffee through a friend.He cut me off. I left embarrassed in front of the whole shop. Was that really necessary?If the rules are so important, please consider posting a sign instead of choosing to embarrass someone in front of the whole shop. I would have gladly followed the rules but you left me no choice but to leave embarrassed.I will never come back here. I will never recommend anyone come her
17:00 24 Jan 20
Cool place, went in around 12 on a Wednesday and all the tables were filled. It was a little cool that day so I didn’t sit outside but there were chairs. Good coffee, oat milk latte was excellent, barista was very well informed and nice. I’ll try the mochi next time. I’ll definitely come back when I’m in the area.
15:03 18 Sep 19
Fun, funky part of town. Nice interior with outside seating. Pretty neighborhood. Good drinks and they do a mean matcha latte. Highly recommend it!
19:58 28 Dec 19
I met Ani DiFranco so 5 stars, dude.
23:56 26 Dec 19
The food was very good. Our server, Dominique, was very friendly and nice. We ordered for appetizer the alligator bites, which was pretty good. The Cajun pasta was fantastic. The jambalaya was a little spicy, but it is expected since you are in NOLA. It is a very good place overall. The margarita was good too!
23:57 31 Dec 19
Amazing food! Alligator bits are the best i have ever had! My fiance got the blackened catfish which she loved. I had the barbecued shrimp that was mouth watering. Our waiter David was very nice and well informed with a great knowledge of the food.
12:30 19 Jan 20
We had a party of nine during a busy time. They were able to quickly accommodate us. The waitress was very nice and was able to handle the larger party with separate checks easily. We had fried shrimp, fried catfish, and their sampler of New Orleans specialties. All the food was tasty and delivered within a timely manner. We enjoyed our experience here.
13:34 20 Jan 20
Our Lyft driver recommended this wonderful restaurant and we couldn't have been happier. Food and drinks were amazing. We sampled a little bit of everything. The house famous oysters were my favorite. Fried shrimp, fried oysters and gumbo hit the spot. Ever employee we encountered went out of their way to be helpful. I was very surprised how quickly all our food and drinks were delivered. I highly recommend this restaurant.
00:47 12 Jan 20
My partner and I came here for our first night in NOLA and I think it’s the fastest we’ve ever eaten a meal- it’s like there was no time to come up for air because the food was that good! Our waiter was super friendly and the food came out within minutes of our order. We got a shrimp po boy and the vegetarian Cajun stew, with the unreal bread pudding at the end. And we put the house Cajun salt on everything. We wish we could’ve eaten there every night of our trip! Definitely make a reservation because everyone will want to be there to taste the delicious food!
21:11 25 Dec 19
I think this place will be nice for certain people, but at least for me, I wasn't that big of a fan, but still enjoyed my time here. Let me talk about the things I liked first. The location is very beautiful, and the quality of the food was good. My only gripe is that i wasn't the biggest fan of the menu, and wish it was larger. I think most people will enjoy it here though.
22:09 02 Jan 20
The restaurant looked very good on the outside and on the inside too. Unfortunately the food was a bit disappointing. There was no great variety because all in all you could've just ordered burgers and sandwiches like in any other restaurant.Our waitress was extremely friendly and the prices were reasonable.
16:26 28 Dec 19
Lived in New Orleans over fifty years ago. Napoleon House has always been a favorite offering a trip back in time. Professional staff offering excellent food and drink. Classical music playing adds to the ambiance. Not a Disney experience--this is real!
22:18 29 Dec 19
Ordered a few appetizers and drinks. Jambalaya, gumbo, roast beef Po boy. Jambalaya flavor is average, share of ingredients to rice is balanced. Gumbo soup is well balanced, not overly bitter. Roast beef Po boy is juicy. Can get pretty busy during peak hours.
18:31 11 Feb 20
My friends and I absolutely loved our meal at Napoleon House. We ducked in with little planning to dodge a sudden downpour, what great luck! Our server was lovely and despite the truly hectic rush of patrons our food arrived swiftly and was delicious! We greatly enjoyed the house beverage as well.
12:45 12 Jan 20
For dinner we had pre-fixed menu and I decided on the seafood gumbo to start, bacon wrapped shrimp for dinner and pecan pie for desert. The gumbo was out of bounds delicious and during the stay had gumbo in 3 different spots and by far this was the best one. The okra was cooked so perfect and had a great balance of seafood. Next up was the bacon wrapped shrimp and grits. If I could make this a food group I would. The shrimp were cooked perfectly and just the right amount of crisp in the bacon. The bonus was the grits and the combination eating all together was simply delicious. To wrap it up I had the pecan pie which not that big of a desert person but this with the homemade ice cream was really good. I had such a great experience here and would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting or local...
02:43 02 Nov 19
This is one of the best restaurants in New Orleans. Why? The food is great and brings locals back as regulars, and it delights visitors who come here for the first time.What makes the experience even better is the outstanding chef, management, and waiters. They all make you feel welcome into the warm and inviting atmosphere.So, yes, this tasty and fun experience makes me highly recommend this restaurant and leaves me looking forward to my next visit here.Yum.
12:41 06 Feb 20
Outstanding. The best meal that I had during my recent visit to New Orleans. Food was excellent and the service was exemplary. Great atmosphere. Duck spring rolls were outstanding and the veal chop was nicely prepared. The bread pudding was just so so it is better at Muriel's on Jackson Square.
20:27 29 Dec 19
The service was excellent and the staff work cooperatively to make sure everyone has what they need. We went for lunch and had the angel hair with shrimp and the jambalaya pasta. Both were very good (the andouille sausage and duck in the jambalaya pasta were amazing). Split the profiteroles; the chocolate sauce and the ice cream were excellent. For the level of service, atmosphere, and quality of food, reasonably priced.
13:50 16 Jan 20
Food was top! Sunday brunch atmosphere was lively and fun. Service could have been a little more friendly but food more than made up for it. BBQ shrimp and fried oysters were delicious as was the shrimp and grits. what a great time!
18:43 24 Jan 20
Came in late and had a delicious bowl of jambalaya. The staff were extremely friendly and the prices were reasonable. To me, there are very few things in this world worth standing in a long line for and Mother's didn't make that list for me. That being said, I'd definitely go back if I was in the area and they weren't swamped.
01:40 10 Feb 20
Great food! Grits were amazing and I know good grits. The omelette was good too. I was too full for the biscuit, but wasn't a fan from the first few bites. Food came out hot and fast. I'd go back if I'm ever in the area.
00:10 16 Dec 19
Great history and a place to visit for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Passed down and still in the family, Mother’s first opened 1938 and survived Hurricane Katrina with minimal damage. If you are going during peak hours expect to wait, but the line moves fast and ordering is efficient. You order, pay, find a table, and they bring you your food. The food was served quickly, right temperature, and the service was friendly. Breakfast is served all day so I ordered the waffle with peaches and my husband had the Ralph sandwich. The bloody Mary’s had a kick and we’re good! We both enjoyed our selections. I also had a side of ham, but it I would say it was a bit on the dry side. Enjoy some good comfort food at Mother’s and make sure to read the history in the back of the menu. There is definitely something on the menu for everyone so give it a try.
20:45 01 Jan 20
The two stars are for the ham, cocktail sauce, and how quickly the line moved to order. I had the combo shrimp and catfish plate with red beans and rice, French Fries, and Dr. Pepper. My wife had a baked ham special. The ham was great, nice flavor that was not tough. It took a little while to get the food and I never received the French Fries. The waiter said he was going to bring them after they were cooked. The shrimp and catfish tasted like it was frozen and not fresh. Overall, it was okay. I just expected better food from this place.
09:28 29 Jan 20
Great food, fast service and amazing atmosphere! For being next to Hollywood Blvd, the ambience was quite relaxing. It was like sitting in a garden and you feel transported somewhere else. I had the arugula tostada and goose salad topped with chicken. My friends had the chicken sandwich. Everything was fresh and we all enjoyed our food. I highly recommend this place!
