When it's date night, this is my go too. Love the atmosphere as well as the attentive staff. Steak is always well seasoned, as is the steak. We love this place.

We were travelling and stopped for the night in Hammond. Looked to Trip Advisor for a place to eat and chose Tope La as it got good ratings. Were not expecting too much as the area would not seem able to support a 5 star restaurant. I was wrong. Atmosphere was pretty much as good as it gets. Probably an... More

We frequently dine at Tope La, both lunch and dinner, and have never been disappointed. Recently, we took friends there for lunch. They RAVED about how delicious the food was and how they loved the atmosphere/environment!

My husband and I tried Tope La, based on reviews and the restaurant lived up to expectation! Staff was very accommodating, food was delicious and the atmosphere was comfortable and elegant. We will put this on our list of go-to restaurants when in the area.

OK, there are so many restaurants in the South it is crazy to name one as being perhaps the best... but you will remember your dinner here for years to come with a smile So many meals are forgettable, but if you are lucky and catch Tope La when they are in the zone, it is something to behold.

Tope La is a good, but not great, restaurant located downtown Hammond. It features seafood and other South Louisiana food. It is over-priced compared to other local restaurants. Lunch entrees average around $14 and dinner about $20. Most dinner entrees come with a veggie or a side; side salads cost $5 extra. The Chicken Angelique (grilled chicken breast served over... More

I've travelled the world and currently live in the Caribbean, but this place tops all. I think that's why they call it Tope La! The crab appetizer was pure lump crab; no bread filler or claw meat. The fish main course over black eyed peas was perfectly done and a real taste treat. Finally, the bananas foster bread pudding; just... More

This is Hammond's best as far as food quality. It's not the only very good restaurants but Tope La will leave you both satisfied and remembering your dining experience.
