“Great combo of ambiance, flavor and value”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

My wife used to go to this place as a youth, and it still offers a great combination of value, atmosphere and authenticity. The service was reasonable given the crowd, and the portions were generous. The tables are pretty close together so it gets a little noisy, but to me that adds to the atmosphere. Order a variety of items and share to get the full impact of the place. Well worth a stop!

“Neighborhood Cafe Offers the Real Deal”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

I wanted true Cajun food at a reasonable cost. Liuzza' is the perfect neighborhood cafe offering great creole/cajun food at a reasonable. Ambiance is of a small cafe/bar. We started with a cup of gumbo, which was the size of most bowls, followed by the smoked oyster with garlic po'boy which was wonderful. The server gave our sweet potato fries to the next table, so we had to wait for that, but they were worth the wait. We ended the meal with key lime pie. You don't need to spend a fortune to still get good cajun food in New Orleans. Just visit Liuzza's

“Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful”
Reviewed 14 February 2012

This was our best meal while in New Orleans. The gumbo was to die for, the bbq shrimp poboy was great, and the breathtaking beef po boy was amazing. Super friendly service, clean bathrooms, etc. I can't say enough good things about this place.

“BBQ Shrimp Extravaganza”
Reviewed 11 February 2012

I have not tasted such an amazing dish anywhere ever. I am not lying when I say I cried. It actually brought a tear to my eye. But Im a foodie so these things matter to me. Try the BBQ Shrimp, it comes with a big roll and a gravy to dip that will be sure to please.
