The bartender and barmaid were not very friendly. I felt like I was inconveniencing them when asking for service. I even asked one of them if there was a problem because he appeared to have gotten upset when I ordered a drink and didn't start...More

A large traveling group and I had dinner at Cafe Adelaide, and enjoyed the best meal of our whole trip. Not only was the food cooked to perfection, but the service was the best I believe I have ever experienced.

We stopped here midweek for the 25 cent martini lunch. Our table had the appletini and the classic martini both of which were good. The turtle soup with sherry was excellent.

Our server was fantastic! Such a nice young man....and gave us great menu tips. Food? Exceptional. Cocktails? Best in NOLA. Ambiance? Comfortable and chic. I have nothing but positive things to say of this establishment.

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

We are considering the Adelaide Café for a rehearsal dinner for 70 in September 2017. Would you recommend this for out of town guests and well as locals?

It may not work as there is no private area in the actual restaurant, but there are other beautiful areas there.

Can you accommodate my gluten and dairy sensitivities? I'm not celiac but cannot eat gluten or dairy due to other chronic health conditions.

When we dined there, we were in the main dining room and I don't recall that noise was an issue.
