Wow, what a change from our visit 4 months ago. Chef David and the staff have found their groove. The service was impeccable, professional and wonderfully paced. Adrienne did extremely well. Since our last visit, I have undergone major GI surgery which has resulted in...More

Great cocktail menu. Shared a winter greens salad with dining companion. along with the shrimp and ceviche. Both were good and we were not stuffed. The Crispy Goat with lentils was very good and I would order it again. Great service.

We came here for our daughter’s 21st birthday. They have an amazing wine list and an incredible menu. We had amazing appetizers, entrees, and dessert. This is one of our favorite places to eat. The service is outstanding. It’s pricey, but worth it.

I live in New Orleans and have eaten at Herbsaint a number of times. I have never had an off meal but on Wednesday, I did. Surprisingly, it was the gumbo, which the place should have down pat by now. The problem: So salty that...More

Staff was excellent! Our waiter, Dan, was fantastic! Very difficult to decide what to order; so many great choices. I had the grilled tuna sandwich on olive bread; very good. Will visit again!

I decided to have dinner at Herbsaint because it is located three blocks away from my hotel in Warehouse Arts district of New Orleans. I am not too impressed on the chicken and andouille gumbo which is supposedly one of the best in the city...More

We dined on 12/26 so perhaps the exec chef was off. Flavors were great and the restaurant does well at the balance between inventive cuisine and honoring NOLA heritage. HOWEVER, the chicken we ordered came out absolutely raw in the middle. Not merely pink, but...More

Herbsaint is without a doubt one of the Great Restaurants in New Orleans! We went today with our good friend Helen. The small plates are excellent like Gnocchi and pork cheek, baked Ashiago, and Cerrveche. Really good main courses such as Seorfish and Duck. Outstanding...More

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
