    We made a reservation that same day, but there was no host/ess, no wait staff, and the dining room wasn’t open! Only option was to sit at the bar/bar area, and we had only a few minutes to get an order in before the kitchen closed! It turns out there is only one person in the kitchen and most weekdays, they close early! We honestly weren’t sure why they allow reservations at the hour we went! The food was absolutely fantastic and salvaged our dinner! The wine list was not, but the bartender recommended one that sufficed. I won’t go out of my way to eat at this place.

    We were in NOLA during Mardi Gras, had no dinner reservations and every place was packed. We stumbled upon Fulton St. Bistro in the lobby of the Omni Hotel. It is a new spot. The restaurant manager was our server and treated us like VIPs.

    We had reservations for the first seating and we were the only customers in the dining room for about 30 minutes. We placed BB our order and was informed approximately 20 minutes after placing the order they were out of salad. This means they were starting their Friday night without salad. Really???? One hour after placing our order we were informed that one of the entrees were not available. At this time we elected to leave. Waitress informed us they were in the process of changing their menu and were out of many of the selections.

    We ate here this time for Saturday lunch. This restaurant has not disappointed. The food has been on point the few times we have been there. Best pecan crusted catfish anywhere. The fish was light and fresh without a fishy taste. The BBQ shrimp are cooked like they are supposed to be, dark zesty sauce with Large shrimp. We WILL certainly visit again. Our server was efficient and very attentive. Great experience all around.

    After reading the reviews, I recommended Fulton St. Bistro & Bar to our whole group. One of the evenings we had dinner reservations for 5:00 pm and was informed (after waiting in line for our table) that it would not be opening until 6:00 pm. No apologies! When I said I thought it opened at 5:00, the answer was, "Well tonight it is at 6"! Our Bartender Kurt was AWESOME. The other nights is was clear that the bartender was not happy and very upset, with a lot of slamming of cabinets and throwing things around. Very disappointing experience from a highly rated Bistro/bar! Would never return or recommend again!

    We went for a spontaneous Christmas morning breakfast, the food was very good, when we received it. The host/morning manager seemed very disconnected. He seated us with lunch menus when it was breakfast/brunch, didn't explain the breakfast/brunch was still available-diners around us were eating breakfast food. We waited patiently ( and it was about 50% seated) until one of the servers was able to come to see us and ask if it was still available? They said yes and had to go find menus. Then, brunch items were running low and nor being replenished, items they specialized in such as gluten-free bread, a house Specialty Sausage, fruits Etc. Would give thema try again next time I'm in town, the fiodvwad hood. Thinkung outliud, the hotel restaurants need to overstock if they're going to be one of the few restaurants open on the holidays in a major tourist destination and during football season when the Saints are trying for a spot in the playoffs.

    Inside the Omni hotel, very few staff and fewer customers at lunchtime. The food, okay but nothing special, came quickly and then no wait staff attention until we asked for the check and more water. There are numerous options nearby and I would not choose this one again.

    The Bistro is located in the lobby of a hotel. When we arrived there were people at the bar, but only three other people in the restaurant. One other table came in during our stay. While the food was adequate, the service was lacking, especially in light of how slow business was. we had to wait to be acknowledged, have our order taken, receive our food, and receive our bill. We chose the restaurant because we had a Groupon. We probably would not return unless we had another Groupon.

    Very disappointed. Located in the Omni, I expected more. Had a reservation but stood at the entry way for several minutes . A customer stayed there was someone to seat us. The bartender then came and sat us. Waitress was polite, but service was lacking, many items on the menu were not available, soup came with first dinner of my guest. My salad never came. After an hour my main meal wasn’t even ready to be served. Canceled the dinner paid our check and left. Not what I wanted for the last experience of a high end hotel, restaurant from one of the best known foodie cities.

    We had a quiet delicious meal. The service was excellent. Although there were only 8 entrees available we had no trouble finding something that we likes. The Seafood pasta with shrimp, crawfish & moray sauce was superb. Our waitress was knowledgeable, friendly and professional. The Gumbo was also delicious. Very low noise level and good ambiance. I especially noticed that the dining chairs were oversized and extremely comfortable. We will return.

    Came here for breakfast and the hostess was unaware the bistro took reservations.?? Service was very good and food was delivered hot and quick! I was a bit disappointed with the Nutella French toast as I was expecting it to have bananas or strawberries. It was soggy and didn’t have much Nutella. I ordered a ham steak for the savory salt compliment however it was more like leftover shavings than steak. My husband had the egg white omelet which he really enjoyed and said it was quite tasty.

    Disappointed in experience. Expressed that we were on short timeline and ordered easy foods (app was the cheeseboard and we each got a salad). Took >45 min to bring cheeseboard and salads were a minute later. We were the only people in the place. Also waiter could not articulate our drink requests to bar. Food was great but will not return!

    Upon arriving the hostess informed me that they no longer take open table reservations. After the manager said they would accommodate us anyway, it took 10min to get water and another 10min before anyone came to take our order. My salad entree was delivered to the table 40min after we were seated.

    Could not handle a big business crowd for breakfast led to chaos around our reservation for a business breakfast in which our table was given away to 3 parties without a reservation. Was embarrassing and led our meeting being cut short. Service was also poor due to busy crowd.

    Nice ambiance and service was good. Food was less than acceptable. Gumbo had absolutely no seafood in it, and was extremely salty. My friend's french onion soup had no croutons, and was truly tasteless. The spinach salad was excellent. We had a groupon, so value was good. I would like to try this restaurant again, maybe for lunch or an early dinner. We dined late, so this could have influenced the quality of the food.

    At first I was very skeptical when I saw the restaurant, as it is directly in the lobby right behind the bar. It honestly feels like the area where you would eat a complimentary hotel breakfast except that it has a podium for a host/hostess. The service was great, however, and the food was excellent, particularly the Croque Madame. I'm not sure that I would be as satisfied if I had paid full price but I would definitely go again with a Groupon.
