“Try others, always come back to Maspero's”
Pierre Maspero's Original Restaurant has been in the French Quarter since 1788. My husband and I have been coming here for decades. No longer living in New Orleans, we always dine here when we visit. Restaurants come and go, but none measure up to the consistency and quality found at Maspero's. Every meal we've enjoyed here is a visit of flavors coming together in every bite. "First you make a roux," has never been more evident than at Maspero's Restaurant, wonderful cajun dining in an 'olde world' environment.
"We came back twice more on our visit"
We checked into our hotel across the street, and were starving, so we walked into this place as it was the first we saw. We were not disappointed in the least. The service was great, and the food very tasty. My wife ordered the crawfish etouffee,( first time ever), and I ordered a sampler of Gumbo, Jambalya, and Crawfish etouffee. Both were so good, that we came back twice more on our visit. We had take out one night, and that was just as good, The drinks at the bar were nice as well, and The bartender, Sunshine, was helpful and attentive. Overall, a great experience
"To die for"
Had dinner there last night with the family and it was wonderful.
Fried green tomatoes were awesome.
Had both the blackened chicken and the veggie pasta Alfredo both were good the sauce was smooth and velvety not overly rich.
The crab cakes were to die for as was the Cesar salad. Do yourself a favor get off of bourbon street and eat here !
"This place has it all"
This place has it all: delicious food/drinks, great atmosphere and fantastic staff!
We tried the seafood pistolettes, the crescent city sampler (gumbo, jambalaya and etouffée) and the fried shrimp Po-Boy. We had a drink called the Creole Queen which was also delicious!
So on your next trip to NOLA please do yourself a favor and check this place out! I rarely eat seafood because I don't really like it, but I would have dinner here again in a heartbeat!
"Best representation of down home creole cooking!"
It was ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!! It was the best representation of down home creole cooking! Best food we have had in a looooonng time! Our waitress was also so friendly but professional. Guarantee we will be returning.
"I can't say enough nice things"
I can't say enough nice things about Pierre maspero's. We arrived close to closing time and they graciously allowed us to stay. Out waitress was wonderful and very attentive. The crab cakes were phenomenal.the shrimp and grits were to die for! My boys loved the jambalaya and blackened shrimp alfredo. I would recommend this restaurant to all my friends!
"Have never been more impressed"
Was some of the best food I've ever eaten. I've eaten food all over the country, and my experience here was phenomenal. I ordered the Blackened Chicken Jumbalaya and have never been more impressed. I also tried everyone else's meal at my table and loved them all. Whether you are a local or a tourist looking for some fantastic New Orleans cuisine, I would HIGHLY recommend this establishment.
"The Shrimp & Grits are a dish I dream about"
I try to eat here at least once every time I'm in Nola! The waitstaff are always friendly & helpful and the food!!! WONDERFUL! The Shrimp & Grits are a dish I dream about when I'm back up north!
