Creole / Cajun / Southern
Tujague's is the second oldest restaurant in New Orleans. This French Quarter institution has been serving traditional New Orleans cuisine to locals and visitors alike for more than 160 years.

Lore states that brunch originated here, as did the Grasshopper cocktail. Homages to the restaurant's long and colorful history abound within the interior of the building from the classic 19th century architecture to memorabilia on the walls.

Menu items such as the seared gulf fish and the daily gumbo meld French traditions with New Orleans fare and flare. Our famous five course menu is still served nightly; but have no fear, the menu is no longer pre-fixe, so those less ravenous diners can join in too.

If you want a quintessential New Orleans experience filled with history and local fare, Tujague's is your place.

    While the food was indeed fantastic, we were here for almost 3 hours. We had empty glasses, and empty stomachs, and were stashed upstairs in a dark corner next to the restrooms where no other guests were seated. Yes, we were a group of 7 women, but had no intentions of being loud or rowdy. While our server was kind and funny, he often didn't return for long stretches of time, leaving our glasses empty. When he did return and we placed a drink order, he would forget one or two of the orders and we would have to remind him. The food was delicious but took over 2 hours to arrive. There was a wedding happening in their event space that I do feel impeded on our own experience and dining. In the future, I would recommend Tujague's either not open the restaurant for dining when there is a large event or not accept reservations for groups over 4. I would return for the food, and would hope to be seated with other guests.

    Great place! Had a reservation for happy hour. Boudin balls and Shrimp n grits were both very tasty. My wife and I weren’t big fans of the Grasshopper and sazerac drinks but we did like the Paloma and French 75. Would come back for sure!

    I was traveling to NOLA alone and chose Tujague’s for my Friday night dinner. The crab cake appetizer was AMAZING! It is solid crab. I swear there wasn’t a bread crumb in site! The shrimp and grits were excellent, a good amount of shrimp for the amount of grits! Ended with a grasshopper and chocolate mousse. Went really together! Delicious but super rich! My favorite drink is a Bee’s Knees and the bartender made a superb one! Highly recommend!

    Little disappoint. Ordered the ribeye but didnt even taste like a ribeye. Seem like it was sirloin. When I asked, they didn’t really have an answer. They didn’t seem to want to work with us on the quality of steak. Just acted as it was what is was. Crab cakes were good but disappointing to get a wrong steak and the restaurant didn’t seem to want to fix it. If it was some how a ribeye it was the most lean and dry ribeye I ever had.

    The food was GREAT, service not so much. Days Prior to our reservation i asked about doing something special for the birthday we were celebrating and I got a message from the restaurant that they would do something special, it NEVER happened. Our server came to the table maybe 3 times, one to take drink order, the other to take our food order then to bring us our check. Our water was not refilled, we had to ask for it. For a higher end restaurant I would have thought service would have been great.

    Tujague's was incredibly accommodating for our party of 10. The server was able to take everyone's orders and keep the flow of the evening moving, the food was divine, and desserts/drinks were outstanding. Would highly recommend for a celebration or taking business colleagues out for dinner.

    Very disappointed. Ate here 20+ years ago and it was legendary. Last night the gumbo way too salty, and the fillet was loaded with salt and tenderizer. Sent it back and second one was just as bad. Sent it back and ordered a salad.

    Poppy Tookers Drag Brunch! It was great fun and we had great food. The servers had a challenge getting through the performance, but they did a great job. People who were having a quiet brunch downstairs came up to see what was going on because they could hear a party upstairs.

    NEVER AGAIN! (From a New Orleans local) With many options for fine dining restaurants within New Orleans, I would recommend going ANYWHERE else besides Tujague’s. We had our reservation for 8:30pm and we were seated promptly, but we didn’t have a server acknowledge our table of seven until 9pm and we ordered our first round of drinks. We did not get our drinks until 9:45, but it was only after we had to seek out the manager about our prolonged wait. Almost all of the table ordered items from the coolinary menu, but our appetizer did not come out until 10pm. Then our server informed us that they ran out of certain menu options, but this could have been avoided if our order was placed in a timely manner. The main course finally arrived at 10:30pm and the restaurant already had closed at 10 with staff members starting to depart. The food was amazing, and we were all happy with our selections even when some items had to be switched out, but this was the only highlight of the night. We proceeded to make the most of the situation, and when the manager came to the table at the end of the night after we had our bills, I let him know of our experience and how they should work to improve the issues that we faced. At this point, the manager said “We look forward to making the experience better for you when you return.” There was not an attempt to remediate the apparent issues of the night, and many of the issues could have been avoided or corrected on site with the manager’s approval. Living in New Orleans, I was EMBARRASSED to have suggested this place to my friends and family visiting. NEVER again will I offer this place as a suggestion due to strictly the poor service we had and the lack of concern to try and correct the issues at hand.

    My review is intended to be helpful not critical I hope that it is used to look at the operation from a customers point of view and improve. Had great expectations for Tujague's, our family used to eat at the old location in the 80s and 90s and was wanting to give it a try for our anniversary but sadly was very disappointed. The quality and preparation of the food is not consistent with what is expected from an fine dining restaurant and the pricing. Green fried tomatoes - Did not taste freshly prepared the remoulade was dull and the shrimp looked and tasted like precooked frozen shrimp from Sam's Club. Salad - Was okay but mostly iceberg and dressing was uninspiring, more like what you would expect from a fast-food restaurant. Turtle soup - Just bad tasted like they used tons of the worst red wine vinegar instead of sherry could not eat it, have had better turtle soup in New Yuck city. Steak - The stake was large and not particularly bad but had little taste. it would be easy to season the stake a bit more and cook it on a hotter grill so that it is seared on the outside and maintain the rare center. Shrimp - The shrimp on the stake tasted like frozen pre-cooked shrimp from Sam's, okay but what you would expect from outback not an upscale restraint Bread pudding - Tasted like what I would expect from Rouses, was too firm and the sauce tasted okay but the sugar had crystallized I expect it is portioned and refrigerated then reheated at minimum the sauce should be reheated in a pan. The chef and kitchen manager should taste any soup and sauce before sending it out and review how the foods are being seasoned. The courtyard could use a neatening up. Tables not set to fine dining expectations. Would be a good investment for the wait staff to eat at other fine dinning restaurants to observe how other restaurants are operating and use the good things others are doing and learn from the mistakes others may be making.

    Tujague's - New OrleansResponded on September 12, 2022Hi Chris, thank you for your feedback. We sincerely appreciate this information and will certainly share it with our chef and kitchen team. We will also be sure to take a closer look at our table setups and make sure everything is in order. Attention to detail is certainly important and something that we need to emphasize. We would like to have you back in sometime so to hopefully make up for this experience and prove that we can do better. If you are interested, please let us know!

    Date night with my husband at Tujague’s was amazing. We went to try the Coolinary menu and it was delicious. Also, the service was excellent. We had the seafood vol-au-vent, gumbo and surf & turf - all of which were amazing! For dessert we had bourbon peach cheesecake and blueberry cobbler - they were good, but not our favorites. We plan to return soon to try items off the regular menu.

    Apps and desserts were excellent as were half of the entrees. The fish entree was supposed to be red snapper with a panzanella salad. The fish was probably sheepshead. The panzanella was arugula with 1 cherry tomato and 2 croutons. Server was very reluctant to check with kitchen about a very common ingredient despite being asked at least twice due to allergy issue. Chairs were inexpensive and uncomfortable. Overall an average night which is disappointing for Nrw Orleans
