We could not have enjoyed more last nights night’s great dining experience at Briquette! The service was excellent, and the food was outstanding! We loved the sea bass, snapper Pontchartrain, salmon, and the redfish halfshell! The Rockefeller was as good as I ever have had (and it is a favorite!)! The Sazerac cocktail also was outstanding! We look forward to our next visit there! (We live in the New Orleans area; I do not know why my review indicates New England?)
The food was phenomenal!!
The service was superb.
Snapper Ponchartrain was perfect.
The appetizers of scallops and crab Napoleon were great sharables.
The staff was amazing!! The prices on the menu were not the same as on the website with about a $10.00 increase per entree. The ribeye was seasoned very well but was not cooked to a proper medium rare and was tougher than I expected for $52.00. The sides, brussel sprouts and potato au gratin were AMAZING!!! Not worth a $70.00 check.
We thought the wine and drink prices were on the high side....food was good but also a bit pricey
Great place to take guest because of the consistency. Food and drinks are always terrific. We go back and back.
Ted the bartender is a great guy and servers Darryl and Tony are great as well.
The food was OK for New Orleans standards, didn’t WOW us, and won’t go back again especially that it was too expensive for what you were getting! Service was good though.
AMAZING SERVICE, FOOD AND AMBIANCE - There were (5) of us. As soon as we arrived, we were escorted to our table and the servers pulled out the seats which was a really nice touch. The server, Darrell, was extremely knowledgeable regarding the menu and also provided suggestions. The food was superior! The presentation as well as the flavor was far better than expected!
The waiter was very kind, also he looked like he wasn't aware of all things that need to be taken care of in his tables. I was expecting a lot more from Briquette based on the reviews, some people had a good time. Unfortunately not us the napkins were gross with bigs stains of food, the silverware looked suspiciously dirty, my cocktail was dry and mostly alcoholic. I just wanted a sweet drink. The fried oysters maybe because the fact they were fried they also they were overcooked, the veggies in the base of the red fish I ordered I just couldn't eat them they were rough as grass even though they were cooked
Overall I didn't like the food my experience was not what I expected. I don't think we will go back.
We chose this restaurant because of a Groupon I purchased, plus it was within walking distance of our hotel. Loved the ambiance but the food was definitely lacking. I ordered the pasta Briquette with blackened shrimp. It was bland and not as flavorful as I would have liked. My husband had the Ahi and added shrimp for additional $10. Was told they were jumbo shrimp but they were very small, like the shrimp in my pasta. Our server was nice but we had to ask for water refills multiple times plus there was a fairly long wait for our food with only 2 other patrons dining. Would not recommend and would not return.
Everything was great...
Another delightful dinner at Briquette! This time we had Tony as our waiter and he was wonderful. He checked on us frequently and could not have been more knowledgeable and efficient.
The pork chop was HUGE and the salmon was cooked perfectly!
The food was top-notch, and the wine and spirits list was out of this world.
Darrell was a great waiter. He made us feel at home and then went above and beyond to deliver a great experience! For example: he checked on us frequently; he delivered a tour of the restaurant and explained the history of the building and its contents; and he took us into a staged area of the the kitchen for a photo opportunity.
Terrible service, food and bartender
Fair considering the excellent restaurants in the area.
Excellent "Pork Porter House"...cooked to perfection..tender..juicy...
My wife was greatly impressed with her shrimp dish...
However, the dessert choice was less impressive
Overall it was a 4.5 experience out of 6.0..
(Better dessert selection takes it over the top)
Amazing food - pork chop was one of the best I have ever had. Can't wait to go back.
Briquette had a good selection and knowledge of wine.
The service was quick and helpful. I had a Briquette salad and it pleasing to the eye as well as to the taste. I had the snapper and it was delicious and cooked well. The atmosphere was quiet and relaxed. I would eat here again and would recommend it for anyone.
We enjoyed a pleasant late lunch. Crab cake appetizer was great. Seafood entries were prepared well with flavorful accompaniments that were not overpowering. Chef was very accommodating as one of our guests had a food allergy. Waiter was pleasant with a sense of humor.
If you are looking for good service and great food this is not the place. They open kitchen allows you to watch your food being prepared through the windows- or you can watch the cooks not making your food and instead playing on their phones like we did! They were not busy, and service was slow. Overall it was a disappointing experience.
The server took our drink order, brought my husbands soda, and then took our food order. I get that it takes a little bit when ordering a cocktail from the bar, but we were done with our appetizer before I was served my drink. The Appetizer was good (Scallops).
I also ordered the Crab Bisque. The Sherry was so overpowering it was all I could taste- I took 2 bites and that was it. When the server Assistant asked if I was done with it I said yes. He never asked if it was okay or if I liked it. He just took the full soup cup. I’m guessing this happens a lot.
For my entree I ordered the blackened red fish. The fish was dry and bland. This dish is also served with shrimp, which was cold. (Not warm, but actually has chill to it like it came out of a cooler. I asked my husband to try my fish and said no because he doesn’t like spice. I joked that it wouldn’t be too spicy for him so he tried it, and agreed it was very flavorless and dry. I also only took a few bites of the fish, but did eat the cold shrimp because I was hungry. Once again, service staff cleared away a full plate without asking how everything was. I will say My husband ordered the snapper, which was good. Dessert was good, but for me it wasn’t worth the $230 that it costed for my husband and I to eat. Also - our server was MIA most of the meal and never once checked in between courses to see how the food was.
Disappointing. I ordered the whole branzino based on other reviews And did not care for it. However the service was nice and the chefs Took me into the kitchen to have my picture taken with the fish
The waiter was great! Soup was cold but fish was good!! Compared to most restaurants in New Orleans just average.
Jackie was an excellent waiter! He recommended the chicken gumbo and it was great. The staff were all very friendly and the kitchen staff showed us the different fish on display. Food is excellent and well worth the extra $$.
A nice atmosphere. I also like to being able to watch the chefs in action from our table but it wasn't too obtrusive. Our server was wonderful she was so sweet and attentive. The food was very good.
Opentable allowed me to reserve at a time when the restaurant wasn’t even open. Thankfully, the manager was near and allowed us to come in at a reasonable time. The restaurant is very fancy. You can see the preparation of food thru the glass and the fish looked delicious. I even saw them take a small family behind the glass to choose a fish. The waiter was wonderful. The food wasn’t as great as expected.
Fantastic atmosphere. The dinner was incredible. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a nice romantic meal or family/friend gathering.
Work dinner. Amazing. Everyone was impressed. We started with the mussels, and then from there everyone had something different and everyone was happy....fish, lamb shank, mmmm
My husband & I both enjoyed our dinner here. We ordered Tuna poke for an appetizer to share, Red snapper for my husband & halibut for myself. The fish was fresh & delicious! The snapper was the whole fish which my husband enjoyed. Would definitely recommend & return again when we’re back in town!
Got the wrong salad, right salad was too heavy with dressing, hardly any lettuce. Mussels not fresh only a few plump the rest mushy. Coffee terrible and cappuccino came from a package. Not shy about prices. Bread not warm and not good bread. Bad coffee and bad bread in New Orleans is a sin. Won’t go back.
My wife and I were in New Orleans for a conference and just happened upon Briquette when looking at options on Open Table. Looked interesting, so we went for it.
The cocktails were delicious.
The Ahi Poke was fresh and delicious.
The Briquette Salad was amazing!
We shared the rib eye which was prepared very well!
No room for desert!
I enjoyed a beautiful birthday dinner at Briquette, just a few minutes walk from my hotel. Ambience was lively and mature. Who poke and scallops appetizers were a delicious way to start the night. The Tournedos medallions and scallops were perfection.
Great service, food is very good and the ambience is great.
Fabulous whole fish options (recommend the red snapper), all fresh local catch. Impressive wine list and tasty creative cocktails.
Food was very good! Service was excellent and professional.
Outstanding service from our waiter Timmy! The food was good and very well presented but excessively salted. We both had meat dishes and in hindsight should have tried a broiled fish ... they looked very fresh but were overpriced for the current market.
It was my first experience coming fo Briquette and I honestly picked it since there was a groupon for it however, it would have been worth it to go either way. The food was amazing and the staff were very friendly. Our waiter was prompt and I never wanted for anything during the meal. I absolutely recommend the crab bisque! It was my favorite thing
Energetic spot in the Warehouse district with a seafood-heavy but varied menu and reasonably-priced wine list. Food was very good for the most part, but we had a terrible experience service-wise. In short, our party of 9 was seated 5-10 minutes after arriving for our 8pm reservation, but didn't get appetizers until 90 minutes later. We skipped desert due to the delays; the total dining time was a bit over 2.5 hours.
I think the crux of the problem is they are woefully understaffed. Our waiter also handled cocktails/wine, poured water, ran the food, and bussed the tables. That was probably partly the reason why we couldn't even put our cocktail order in until 20 minutes after sitting. He was overwhelmed dealing with other tables. Then there was supposedly some snafu with the appetizer order being sent to the bar accidentally and the printer running out of paper. But the real problem is none of this was explained at the time; not until we sought out a manager did we find out what was happening, but basically the manager didn't really seem to care about the terrible service experience. The waiter was working his buns off but had no support from management, and even the kitchen disappointed (e.g., the 9 entrees came out over the course of about 10 minutes). The manager's apathy is why I'm writing this review - he could have done many things to mitigate the service issues, but again, he didn't care and gave excuse after excuse. So certainly we won't be back, and we suggest others consider alternative establishments. Oh, and this was the ONLY restaurant of 4 we ate at with the group of 9 over the weekend that had a mandatory 20% tip, so clearly they know their service sucks.
Thank you for the great hospitality and wonderful food°
Fantastic service and food. Definitely a must when in NOLA!
We waited 15 mins after being seated to be welcomed. I thought coming at 8 it wouldn’t be too late for service. Food was ok expected more from all the reviews.
The waitress brought my wife the wrong drink. The second drink was ordered, the waitress went in the back of the restaurant and was socializing with the other staff. I had to go to the bar and get my wife’s drink and bring it to the table. According to the bartender “ it has been sitting here waiting for her to pick it up “. I ordered the pork chop medium. The first one came to the table overcooked( dried out). They took it back to the kitchen and sent a second plate. The manager came to the table as I cut it. This one had an uncooked center. It was not slightly pink. IT WAS RAW PORK. The manager offered no explanation, apology or any consideration. My wife and I eat out 3 ,4 times a week. On the way home we talked about this being the worst meal /service that we have ever had.
