Unforgettable dining, thanks to a large courtyard and an extensive brunch buffet. – The Scene
Fountains and a playful jazz band create a soothing atmosphere under a canopy of wisteria in the French Quarter's biggest courtyard for dining. Inside is elegantly done with white linen and mirrors.
The daily jazz brunch buffet is an undertaking of tremendous magnitude. It offers more than 80 items, including traditional breakfast foods, cold salads, soup, fruit, boiled seafood, dessert and more. On weekends, a special station makes eggs Benedict and omelets to order. Southern favorites such as grits and grillades are among the best any place. Brunch wouldn't be the same without Two Sisters' signature mimosas. Order a split of house champagne and a carafe of OJ to make it through the meal. Dinner features Creole seafood specialties such as etouffee and several fresh fish dishes, plus veal, beef and chicken.
I ate poached eggs! – I always envisioned poached eggs as nasty, but much to my surprise, the creole eggs benedict was to die for. The mimosas were good and the service was great. It is well worth the cost, but I do recommend making reservations early because for the Jazz brunch they go fast! We really enjoyed the food and the jazz. There was so much to choose from that we were just sick when we left...sick in a good way--from having stuffed ourselves.
Nothing but Hype – We recently visited this "up-scale" restaurant and were extremely disappointed. It all started with the "garlic" bread they brought out which was potent enough to drive away any "vampire" you might encounter in the city. I'm not sure any one could actually eat more than a morsel. Our waiter did not explain the menu (you can do a pre-fix) or make any recommendations. After tasting the wine I selected and giving my approval, the waiter simply put it down on our table without pouring (we were 20 mintues into our dining experience). At this point, we get the maitre'd involved, only to have him be "offended" by bringing the lousy service to his attention. Overall, it's all hype.
Perfect Bruch - Loved it – LOVED Court of Two Sisters. It was my wedding day and I wanted a nice brunch for my family and bridesmaids... there were 17 of us. They set a wonderful table outside for all 17 of us.... the service was excellent the food was delicious and the jazz band just added icing on the cake.
The mimosas were reasonably priced as well. I can't imagine a better brunch and for $30 a person we were pampered and spoiled. The variety of food was amazing... try the seafood omlette which is topped with hollandaise sauce and don't miss the bananas foster...
User review by visitor674 – Jazz??? Where? They were playing a taped classical music. Everything was very, very average. Yes, they have a huge menu, but was it all that good? No. It was raining, so could not seat outside. The room is big (not romantic at all) and looked like a cheap diner: starting from the silverware, plates to the room itself.. For the money we paid there (more than a $100 without the dessert) it was very, very average and not worth it. From the service to food.
An all-around terrific experience for us – Before dinner, we found the bartender friendly and attentive. Once seated in the courtyard, we were charmed by the wait staff. Both assigned to our table were warm and pleasant without being too familiar. Prompt service without being rushed. Our meal was marvelous. Perhaps not haute cuisine, but delicious and enhanced by the wonderful time we were having.
While in New Orleans, we got a sense that many working in the service industry did so begrudgingly. At the Court of Two Sisters, we were welcomed by exceptional, gracious people and a quality meal. It was a beautiful evening.
A previous reviewer intimated this location may dupe unsuspecting tourists. We may have been visiting New Orleans but we are quite well traveled and far from being easily dazzled. This stop is a "must" on our list for our friends and family as well as the next time we visit the city.
Tourist Trap – There is very little at the Court of Two Sisters that resembles fine dining. We did not have the privilege of sitting in the courtyard, and instead were ferried to a dining room that resembled a VFW banquet hall. The silverware and napkins are probably 15 years old, and the dishware is from the "Greek Diner" collection. The Caesar salad, prepared tableside, was more of a distraction than a novelty...both for us and the neighboring table. The icing on the cake was terrible, lukewarm coffee. The moral of the story: There are plenty of great restaurants in New Orleans. Court of Two Sisters is not one of them.
I was in this restaurant 6 years ago for a Sunday brunch, it was a wonderful experience.
I return 6 year after and the food decrease its presentation, its taste, generally its decrease in a whole average.
Great Courtyard, So-so Food – Absolutely beautiful ambiance in this outdoor courtyard. We went for dinner on a Saturday night. Right in the center of noisy Bourban Street, this delightful room is a genuine oasis from the crowds and noise. While we were delighted with the service and ambiance, we found the food to be pricey and average. We had the shrimp creole (way too vinagary) and the so-so Lobster etouffe. The gumbo soup was also average. However, the bread pudding was a delight and quite possibly the best I've ever had. Somewhat strange seating arrangement where you are escorted through the restaurant to another person who will seat you. The restaurant was half empty and we didn't understand the odd way that we were brought into the restaurant.
Unbelievable! – I don't see how anyone could not like this place for brunch. These is so much to choose from, and it is all SO good! Shrimp and crabmeat omelettes, eggs benedict, and and endless bar full of exquisite and unusual dishes. Definitely worth the price. I thought I was literally going to burst when I left, that's how good it is. The best breakfast I've ever had.
