    The only reason I gave it a three was because of the boisterous and unruly party of 8 at one of the adjoining tables upstairs. These people ruined our dinner and the dinners of everyone else in the the upstairs dining room. We could not hear anyone, including the server, at our table and relaxed conversation was impossible. I'm sure the restaurant is normally OK, and we don't blame them or or server. Too bad ... we were looking forward to dinner at this establishment.

    Food was good. Service— could be better- the appetizers came quickly- a good thing, but we did not receive appetizer plates until after we finished the appetizers. So we used our bread and butter plates for appetizers and the bread. Servers Did not clear plates very promptly and left us with the rather large menus in our laps while trying to navigate passing and sharing appetizers. The table was often overcrowded with empty dishes and all the menus - cocktail, dinner and wine. However do not let my petty complaints stop from trying the food. Had the drum and it was fantastic!! And servers did keep refilling our water- so that part was great.

    Attentive and professional service by Will. Duck, lamb, and every dessert they had were outstanding. Oysters Rockefeller like I've never seen before. Not recommended based on consistency (covering almost pâté-like), flat flavor, appearance (the ingredients were mixed vice layered, forming a green/brown blob), and being served on a bed of large rock salt (crystals the size of pencil erasers sticking to the food). Lastly, filets were overseasoned and inconsistently cooked. Don't get hung up on the negatives--I still recommend the venue.

    Sergio , our water was so good ! The older man filling the glasses was so cute ! We had California friends visiting and they ordered the Fried Chicken & dumplings . The fried chicken was so hickory smoked they couldn’t eat it . There was no description that it was smoked at all on the menu . I don’t even know how you smoke and fry chicken together. But that being said , the overall experience was good .

    Outstanding spot in the Warehouse District! Of the dozens of trips I’ve made to New Orleans, this was my first time at Annunciation. I’ll definitely be back!! Terrific atmosphere in an old historic building. Kinda “warehouse chic”atmosphere. Great menu with creative New Orleans fare of seafood and non-seafood dishes. The roasted duck and grilled lamb chops were outstanding. Super nice people and great service.

    Wanted to like this place. Ordered a medium steak. Served blue. Friend had a piece of plastic in her salad. Seafood gumbo came out chicken sausage gumbo and was lukewarm. Cocktails were bad. Just a bad experience throughout. I’m typically not “that guy,” but this place needs a new manager and line cooks.

    Food was amazing, drinks were great. Try the Southern Smash! Only hiccup was that it took forever for our food to arrive. That said, our server offered free wine and did a great job of taking care of everything. I highly recommend the roast duck and veal annunciation.

    Excellent service and great food but at New York/London prices. 1) a wedge salad at $12 that has all of $1.75 in ingredients? 2) a 'shrimp' remolaude that included a whopping total of TWO (2) shrimp and various weeds. 3) Three (3) slices of fried green tomato for $16? Three slices? As in less than half of one tomato? 4) paneed veal with 0NE (1) small piece of over cooked veal?? 5) and a wine list that makes commanders palace seem like an discount store (except is was far less curated) Don't get me wrong, service was spot on and the food was delicious. Just very stingy portions at very high prices. I'd be embarrassed to serve such small portions at my dining table. A plate of lettuce and other weeds plus two (2) shrimp is NOT shrimp remolaude, it is a dissapointing lettuce/weed salad with 2 shrimp....

    We had an excellent dinner at Annunciation! We were set on finding soft shell crabs since the season is coming to an end. Annunciation is one of the few places in New Orleans where soft shell crabs are on the menu and actually available. Delicious! The fried eggplant and fried oysters with brie and spinach were outstanding appetizers. The chocolate pot dessert was amazing. Sergio is an attentive and professional server. We will definitely be back!
