    Went to celebrate the 80th Birthday of my mother-in-law. The grounds were beautiful, the ambiance of The Carriage House was fantastic and the service was impeccable! The only thing I will say is that the food was a little bland. Not what you would expect for Louisiana cuisine. Other than that we couldn’t have been happier with our experience! Thank you!

    This was the first time my husband and I have eaten here and we were very surprised and pleased. It’s a beautiful walk through the grounds to the restaurant so come at least 30 minutes early to enjoy that. We had arrived exactly at our reservation time so we hurriedly rushed through not enjoying the gardens but we were able to after dinner. We were greeted by a hostess who led us to a table for two. I will say the tables are pretty close together but that’s to be expected when dining in a converted house. The decor was beautiful and lots to look at. Our waiter was very friendly and efficient but we did feel a little rushed. No one’s fault but I did see they were serving a big party that sat next to us so that might have had something to do with it. We were given a warm bread basket with two butters. We enjoyed nibbling on that while perusing the menu. We ordered the pork cheeks to start. They were nice and very tender. My husband ordered the pork chop and I ordered the eggplant Napolean for our entrees. The pork chop was very flavorful and tender. Very nice. My eggplant had huge chunks of crab but lots of underdone veggies which I think were leeks and red onion. It gave the dish an odd texture. The butter sauce also seemed a bit odd but it didn’t ruin the meal. It just made me realize I ordered wrong. Oh well there’s always next time. We ended the meal with the creme brulee. It was your basic creme brulee. Nothing special but still good. After dinner we were able to walk the grounds in the twilight and it was very peaceful and romantic. Definitely a great place for date night or anniversary.

    Beautiful grounds and location. They mixed up the steak temperatures with our two steaks. My ribeye was accidentally well and my wife’s filet rare. We swapped but wasn’t the intent.

    If you haven’t been, then make your reservations to experience the Inn, Houma’s House plantation and the Carriage House. You will not be disappointed. We visit as often as we can an absolutely love the property.

    There was only one waitress serving the large dining area. The bar tender at the Turtle bar was NOT friendly. The appetizer (crab and mango cake) was sour. Bread bowl was just ok. Our entrees were very good……I had the eggplant with crabmeat and there was lots of crabmeat. My husband had the shrimp scampi which was very good.

    Absolutely gorgeous restaurant and grounds!! The food was delicious, original and great portions - we all took some home. The desserts were original and equally as wonderful! The ambience was lovely, dining in a fine restaurant with great service. There was little to no noise, the wait staff were attentive without being overbearing. Can't say anything negative. Would highly recommend the drive from New Orleans to eat at a one of a kind experience.

    We really enjoyed celebrating our 54th anniversary touring the Houmas House and Gardens and then dining at the beautiful Carriage House Restaurant. The dining room was gorgeous with all of its furnishings and decorations and the service was outstanding. Our server was very sweet, helpful, courteous and attentive. The food was absolutely delicious. From appetizers to entrees and on to desserts everything was wonderful. We will definitely dine there again.
