Well, the Jazz brunch was nice because of the Jazz ... The servers were nice ... The eggs Benedict were good, but most of the salads were dripping with mayonnaise so for me it was a pass. Joey had some ribeye that he said was excellent, and my very favorite was the pecan pie. Can't believe they charged extra for... More

A local friend recommended this for brunch on Sunday. We didn't make or need a reservation. The buffet was big and varied. We are vegetarians and had plenty of variety. Serve was good. Only complaint was the music. Trio singing songs from the 40s isn't the jazz buffet advertised.

Founded around 1832 and rebuilt in 1960 it is a very nice bar with a lot of history. Their specialty drink is the Bayou Bash (the original Sangria). A nice place for an evening.

A buffet so be prepared to walk for your breakfast but plenty of food and a good jazz vibe. Get there early and try to sit outside, it's lovely.. $30 a bit pricey but with the jazz it's just lovely-- very NOLA.

Been here for both brunch and dinner. Brunch is buffet style with a make to order omelet station. Dinner includes your waiter making Ceasar salad and Bananas Foster at your table.

Glad we came! The mid-week buffet included many southern favorites like delicious sweet potatoes with pecans, Jumbalaya rice, seafood, meats, salads, and yummy desserts. Considering the price of local dinner entrees, it was reasonable at $30/person. We had the brunch at 1:30 pm, so only needed a light snack for dinner. The outdoor area is lovely with lots of trees...

The food was very good, not great. The court yard dining was phenomenal. I would recommend it based on the courtyard dining experience The picture is bananas foster being prepared. It is in the top 10 restaurants in the French Quarter, in my opinion.

There's lots of New Orleans history in this bar/restaurant and good food. When the weather is nice, we enjoy sitting outside. The brunch is fine. Service is reasonably good, not raving good from a native New Orleanian's perspective but worth it.

My wife was a stewardess for United Airlines in 1966. During her first New Orleans layover the crew dined at Court of Two Sisters. She has never forgotten that experience. Fittingly, on a recent trip to New Orleans we celebrated her birthday in the same courtyard. The food was very good and the service was even better. We cam in... More

Had the buffet lunch here. It was expensive and not spectacular, but the food quality was pretty good. For those of us unused to the foods of the region, it's a good chance to try lots of things. The courtyard setting is charming.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
