Lonely Planet recommended this place, so I checked it out. Pros: Nice ambiance and lighting. The owner/host is very polite and courteous. They give you perfectly toasted warm bread, butter and some kind of a salsa-like dish that is mostly diced tomatoes, olive oil and...More

I see you are also from New Orleans and had the same impression as I did. Claude's food wouldn't even be an average restaurant in New Orleans.

I love the place and the food the way they present is awesome, and of course the French taste is surprisingly great.

Mediterranean Cuisine.

Claude’s serves the best steaks in town. Their steaks are perfectly cooked to the diner’s specifications with a choice of pepper or mushroom sauce. It can also be served with either mashed potatoes, or the more popular choice, rice.

Other crowd-drawers are their appetizers, salads and soups. Some appetizers which deserve to be mentioned are their salmon pate and shrimp cocktail. The pate is served with lightly toasted sliced French bread while the cocktail is full of fresh shrimp smothered with light dressing and a helping of tomatoes and avocados. Their ceasar’s salad is also easily one of the best I’ve tasted in the city.
