On a positive note, Criollo is a thoughtfully and classically designed restaurant with exceptional food. Unfortunately, these facts weren't enough to overcome the overall disappointment of our experience. We made reservations several months in advance to have 11AM brunch here on Christmas Eve (which was...More

When dining here one is seated immediately adjacent to the Carousel Bar (which is fabulous) where the noise produced by drinking patrons is stifled by the live entertainment. After 9 pm things improve slightly...that's when the jazz trio begins their set. Regardless, if one is...More

We were too lazy to get dressed and go downstairs to breakfast, so we ordered room service. The eggs benedict was fantastic, as was the grilled asparagus. I didn't feel like I missed out by not going to Brennan's. Also, I heard from many sources...More

Loved the food here, try the 3 different soups! worth it. Also the desert was really tasty here. Too bad that the quiet atmosphere is a bit disturbed by the loud bar next to it that is divided from the restaurant by screens

This is a gorgeous restaurant located within an even more beautiful hotel. Service was good but the food was great! Beignets, Omelets, Biscuits and Gravy were all delicious meals our group tried and devoured!

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

Breakfast is casual. We did not eat dinner there but did have drinks at the bar and lounge. We did not see anyone in very casual clothing. So if not long pants then dress shorts. Hope this helps.
