Had breakfast before returning home. Nice selection of breakfast items. Loved the Rano omelet. Michael was a wonderful waiter. Took me back to diner in my hometown.

Extremely rude service. Did not feel welcome at all. Not the type of place you want to spend with your family. Food was cold and inedible. Definitely not worth the wait. Pass on this place!

I ordered a cheese burger and fries. It was amazing and tasted like a perfect homemade burger. Would recommend anyone to go there and enjoy a classic of NOLA.

What really stand out at the Camellia Grill is the experience and the staff. The menu is varied and it is served in a classic diner style. I would say try it at least once for the historical significance. A good place to try after...More

Early, late or in-between, this is a great restaurant to please every taste. This time, it was the cheeseburger and fries that I was craving.

We had breakfast here. When it says grill it means grill. Seating for about 24 people at counter, no tables. Two grills cooking with an ample number of waiters. You get your meal fast but that's about it. Lots of butter and grease on everything....More

Came here for late lunch out of nostalgia. This was a favorite late-night supper after work for me many years ago. Had not been back for 12 years and was disappointed. Food was definitely barely average based on my previous experiences. We had a hamburger...More

Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly
fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife
and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s

I really don't know. We were at the Camilla Grill right off St. Charles at the end of the streetcar line. I remember seeing it on the menu but I was focused on the pecan waffles.
