We stopped in for breakfast after looking at the online menu and decided to give it a try. This particular location is off the beaten path and a bit small. My husband and I had "pick 2" of the signature benedicts. The portions were ample but the food could have been a bit warmer. Hubby enjoyed the Bloody Mary. Friendly... More

Family Christmas bunch for 10 is never easy?! At this location it was no problem! Used the Nowait app and we were seated just as the last fam arrived. The food was simply amazing! We all got different meals and we all faved at every bite. Great service and the atmosphere is cool. A must when visiting NOLA.

Great mimosas with my sandwich. Service was good, very accommodating with seating as there is always a wait at this location. My friend had a coupon for a free side item, but unfortunately they were out of their delicious candied bacon. They did bring what they had left though!

Got there at 8 am getting busy shown directly to long bench table with stools. Server was very pleasant we didn't look at the menu as the special sounded great. Coffee is good and flowing. Breakfast arrived momentarily it's presentation was mouthwatering, tasty and plentiful. When we left there were queues outside. Only in New Orleans for 3 days would... More

I believe there are a total of 4 Ruby Slipper restaurants in New Orleans and this is the original location. We have tried 3 of the 4 locations. It is situated in a residential area and is about two miles away from Bourbon St. We walked there from our French Quarter hotel and enjoyed the walk whilst looking at some... More

Find a place to park and give this place a chance. Holy moly... had a Bloody Mary whilst I was waiting and I would've just been satisfied with that...was fantastic. The food is spectacular. Wait staff are brilliant. Please try this place, you won't be disappointed.

We went to visit family in NOLA, and this is one of their favorite breakfast places. Being young and tech Davy, the kids had a no wait app that lets you "get in line" without being there, which is a great thing, because this popular spot always has a line. We got a variety of things, i love eggs Benedict,... More

As soon as we landed, we made a bee line to try the Gulf Fish St. Peter. My husband had been raving about it for weeks after he came back from New Orleans. Presentation was beautiful but I was a little disappointed. The Drum fish tasted a bit bland - even though it was smothered in the creole mustard hollandaise... More
