High Amount for very Low Cuisine – Had Thanksgiving dinner here.

1) there were out of Turkey at 7pm! I had beef instead and it was not tasty and cold.

2) The sauces were way to salted and they used too old and too smelly cheese in it.

3) The wine was pretty bad - and I asked for recommendation.

4) Desert was ridiculously small.

5) Poor service: cocktails came with the hot appetizers, they asked if we wanted coffee before desert, they totally abandoned us after entrees and pushed out of the restaurant after desert... even if it was almost empty.

DON'T GO!

OK - Not Great and Careful with your credit bill!! – The price on my AMEX bill was wrong.

Wrote $15 Tip on my receipt and was charged $20.

How can they make that mistake?

I needed to make 2 phone calls to talk to somebody who can deal with my problem, because nobody called me back after I left message.

They were not sorry about the mistaken.

When I had same trouble at the onother pizza restaurant, they return me all tip I paid.

I don't thik this restaurant has a great service for this price.

A great evening in New Orleans – What a beautiful restaurant! When you first approach it from the street, you have no idea of how gorgeous the dining rooms and courtyard are. The night that I dinner there they had a wedding in the courtyard and what appeared to be some type of corporate event in another room that is adjacent to the courtyard (I was told that the room was originally stables built in the early 1800's). I brought my family and at first was concerned that the menu had nothing for small children ( 7and 5 years old), but my waiter quickly assured me that the chef would be happy to make them up a fried chicken tender or fried shrimp plate with French fries, they were thrilled. I started with the Crabmeat Broussard's, delightful and then had the Bouillabaisse, I didn?t know that you could fit that much seafood in a bowl! Hubby had the Broussard's salad, with spinach, bacon and mushrooms, the dressing was incredible! For dinner he had the Veal Broussard's loaded with sweet crabmeat. I would have been jealous if my dinner hadn't been so good. The service was great, not pushy or intrusive yet somehow knowing what we wanted without asking. Finished off with tableside Crepes Flambe in a strawberry sauce. I definitely recommend Broussard's and will make it a constant part of my travel plans in New Orleans!

Best meal of 3 top French Quarter restaurants – Post-Katrina, reservations were not required, dress code somewhat relaxed, immediate seating with no reservation. Ambience was tops, as was service & food. They are trying very hard to reinstate, and their efforts sold me! Wine list is exceptional, but menu options were somewhat limited because everywhere in town they're limited. The house special salad was wonderful & the maple glacied duck was the most tender ever, very moist and not greasy. The potato side served under the duck was excellent, but didn't eat it all to save room for their bread pudding with cranberries instead of raisins + caramel whiskey sauce to die for. A little pricey, but well worth the money unless your wine is $$$$$. Also VERY romantic with great early 19th century French charm. Will definitely eat here when in town again. (Their outdoor courtyard has quaint romantic charm but was reserved for a private party.)

Rich, satisfying French-leaning Creole fare in an elegant atmosphere just a half-block from Bourbon Street. – The Scene
An institution in the French Quarter since 1920, Broussard's resembles a stately mansion, with three spacious dining rooms, each with their own design touches--dark wood and red walls in one; French tapestries and floor-to-ceiling windows in another, and a lush garden courtyard. Chef/owner Gunter Preuss keeps his menu sophisticated and modern. The staff is refreshingly attentive, as if each server were your own personal Jeeves.

The Food
Standard Creole dishes get a French update and upscale presentations. Corn and shrimp bisque is fortified with sweet potato puree, another layer of depth in the flavorful classic. Grilled pompano Napoleon teams a moist fillet of the Gulf favorite with seared scallops and shrimp, all inside a puff pastry. The veal escalope Acadian combines sauteed veal, crabmeat and an excellent mustard/dill bechamel sauce. For a light yet decadent dessert, the Paris-Brest pastry is tops, with vanilla cream, pistachio sauce and strawberries.

Oh well – The place was nice. People were turned away due to clothing/no reservation. I loved my meal which was the lamb chops. The server recommended the duck which she ordered. She did not like her meal and because of the price, I ate it for her. Server asked how the meal was and she said she did not care for hers and he gave a small chunkle and nothing else. Not exactly what I expected from them.

Dinner in Paradise – I spent a fairytale evening there with my husband on our 1st anniversary. The meal was wonderful and the service was attentive and fabulous. We sat in the courtyard which is easily the most beautiful spot I've seen in the French Quarter.

Very Impressive – My wife and I had dinner at Broussards last week, although the restaurant was very busy, we were treated as though we were the only customers in the house. We started with an oyster dish, shared a spinach salad, then she had the pompanoand I had the duck, all outstanding. Great service, beautiful courtyard, all in all a 10+

THE BEST! – We visited Broussard's for Valentines Day this year, and had a wonderful time! Though not the BEST romantic restaurant in New Orleans, the outdoor dining area CAN'T be beat!!

Best bet in town! – We first went to Broussard's in 1968 on our first trip to New Orleans. I was on my last leave before going to Vietnam.My wife, of six months, picked the restaurant out of the phone book and had the best meal of our lives. Each time we are in New Orleans we return and we have never been disappointed. We love the Patio.
