For great New Orleans / American fare visit Rothschild's.
terrible – Saturday after Thanksgiving had breakfast at Stan's. Looking forward to a New Orleans breakfast. Placed order and never saw the waitress again. Waited way too long for breakfast to be served but finally received order. The three of us ordered the same breakfast and all three were served cold. Sent the orders back and had to wait again. The service was poor and the food was not that good. Would not recommend Stan's
Awesome, Awesome Southern Food – Stan's Place has been around for a while and I understand they've got a new Chef. As a result I thing they've made what was good, great! There are many good things on the menu it's hard to choose. Brunch Favorite: Eggs Louis Armstrong. Lunch: Veggie Burger Dinner: Mussels or the Shrimp and Grits or the Blackened Catfish w/ spinach and bbq sweet potatoes. It's hard to choose! It's one of my favorite restaurants. Everything is fresh and delicious! Give it a try.
TERRIBLE – Stan's doesn't just butcher New Orleans cuisine, the food in general is just bad. My fiance and I are both from New Orleans and were so excited to try out this place. Needless to say, we were very dissapointed.
i've died and gone to southern heaven – My fiance and I have brunched here a few times and always leave feeling fat and happy. The first time we ventured into Stan's we lucked out on the smaller table by the french windows. the interior is bright and airy, with a New Orleans French quarter style balcony overlooking the main dining area.
we normally order beignets, coffee and fresh orange juice to start and then mull over the menu while we wait for them to arrive. First time I had the fried oyster poboy - it's a weakness of mine and stan's did not disappoint. My favorite dish to date has to be the eggs sardou however, poached eggs with artichoke and a tasty hollandaise.
the last time we were there I had the catfish fingers with creamy grits. The grits were great, the catfish not bad but a little dry, and that spicy seasoning wreaked some fiery havoc on my irish plumbing. One the other hand, my fiance's bananas foster pancakes were quite yummy.
Hostess and waitstaff were courteous and easy on the eyes. What more could you want?
Interesting Menu with New Tasks on Classics – Just had dinner here on a Wednesday night (10% entrees night! good deal!). The food was excellent, though a little off. I did not enjoy their take on the onion rings, too much crunchy stuff with oddly no crunch, nor the mango ketchup, I prefer regular old Heinz. But, my salmon burger was extremely tasty and the bites I had of my friend's food was very very good. Only problem I had was the service. They were pretty busy tonight and appeared to only have two servers so I can't be too harsh. Also, the live music, though lively and entertaining, was so loud I had to shout across the table to have a dinner conversation. Luckily we were almost through when the band started so we only had to shout through two songs. The ambience of the restaurant is lovely and according my friend, really captures the vibe of New Orleans. NOTE: Cash only, and their ATM charges $1.75 fee so don't bring an empty wallet. :) Overall a lovely place I'll definitely try again!
SAVE YOURSELF - STAY AWAY!!! – I can officially say that I had the worst dining experience of my life here. Did it say on their web site that the chef had creole culinary training? Let's give them the benefit of the doubt and say that when my boyfriend & I went there their "highly trained" chef was on vacation and the lowly assistant who never paid attention when being taught was manning the stove... Anyway, I ordered the blackened catfish & I swear they try to torture the diners with black pepper. I can promise you that all this fish was seasoned with was black pepper & TONS of it - nothing else!!!!
What annoys me is that my boyfriend and I just came back from New Orleans & we stumbled upon this disaster of a restaurant by mistake. In New Orleans we dined @ KPauls who has the best blackened anything you can imagine. We didn't expect the same quality but at least edible. Normally I don't complain when a meal isn't great but I couldn't continue to commit suicide with every bite. We told the server that it was bad & all she did was smile & shrug. Yeah dumb smile and shrug... While it would have been nice of her to offer a substitute, she offered nothing!!!
At any rate, we put that bad experience to bed and have vowed NEVER to go back. If they ever tried to open this horror in New Orleans, they'd be run out of town on the first street car.
I'm sorry to hear that your meal was not to your liking. The Blackend Catfish is one of our most popular dishes.
Please contact me for a full refund of your entire meal.
cafe du monde beignets? ?? not quite – i found stans place googling new orleans style beignets in new york. i was thrilled to read they use cafe du monde mix and coffee.
i rode my bike from boro park to try them out. first of all, my cafe au lait had a thick topping of foam; something never seen at cafe du monde and the beignets were thin and undercooked and tasted nothing like the original.
with tip i spent $10. i left disappointed. the place looks and feels nice and the staff was friendly.
as for authentic new orleans style beignets and cafe au lait, the search continues.
While its true that if you order a creole coffee at Stan?s you will get the original Cafe Du Monde coffee- the same exact coffee that you can order in New Orleans. We do however top it with a small dollop of foam for a nice presentation.
Please feel free to order it without the foam.
As for our Beinets, I?m very sorry!
If you?ve ever waited on that long line at the Cafe Du Monde in the French Quarter... you?ve seen that wonderful machine in the window that rolls, cuts, and fries hundreds of beinets at a time. Although we sell the Cafe Du Monde Beinet Mix, we take pride that our Beinets are never from a mix. We kneed, proof, cut and fry our Beinets by hand every day. I think our Beinets are the closest to the original that you can get without going to New Orleans and It pains me to think that you traveled all that way to be disappointed.
Please accept my apology and if possible give us another try.
Can't wait to go back – My first experience at Stan's Place was last month. I loved it immediately. It's very small and quaint but that's just fine by me. If it was too get any bigger I believe it would lose its personality. We went for Brunch and the food was out of this world. I had the catfish (which tasted so fresh) and grits (which were so creamy) and a side order of biscuits with sausage gravy. I have never tasted anything so good in my life. Sausage gravy over biscuits? What a delicious idea. I ate like a pig. The wait wasn't long and for the most part the staff was friendly. My only complaint was our waitress. i think her name was Lily or Lila. She wasn't rude,she just wasn't someone who I think should be working as a waitress. You need personality for that. I felt as if she didn't want to be there. I thought maybe it was just a bad day for her, but I went back this past Sunday because I just had to take my husband and she was our waitress again and I got the same vibe. I just ignored it because everything else made up for it. I would still go back
was there today – For brunch. Can't wait to try dinner soon. Loved the atmosphere - calm - and the staff didn't act like they wanted to be somewhere else. No complaints whatsoever on the food except that I ate too much. OJ tasted freshly squeezed which I love!
