We researched online for a good dining spot for a nice dinner in New Orleans and liked what we read online about the Chartres House. We sat on the 2nd floor slim balcony of this French Quarter building, and loved the views even though it...More

Great wait staff, and wonderful food and service. The sausage po-boy was fantastic, as were the hurricanes!

Family of 5 stopped in for dinner. Can't complain about the food or the price, on the whole it was a decent meal. Service could be better, they did what was required but nothing more.

My husband , son and I had dinner here . Service was great. The jambalaya was terrific and the muffuletta was awesome . My 15 yr old Etouffee lover was disappointed. The portion was small for $18 and he thought it was pretty bland .

Food was ok without being amazing and the laid back service was not offensive but felt like we were holding them back from what they really wanted to be doing. Wouldn't recommend to friends when so many other options around.

I don't know what was worse- the rat that kept on popping out of the corner or the bathroom that looked like someone was murdered in it. Drinks weren't bad but the grossness of the place totally outweighed it.

We just stopped in for bread pudding and coffee and enjoyed the atmosphere. The bread pudding was good, but the coffee was harsh. We ate it even though we were watching a four legged creature roam about then run out of the restaurant.

We ate their last night. The food was reasonable without being any thing special. What let it down for us was the service. The waiter, who was not particularly friendly throughout, asked us if we wanted coffees or desserts before we had finished our main...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

I don't think so. We went the evening we arrived and just walked right in. If you had a large party it might be different.

Chartres House is a local favorite—a French Quarter landmark serving casual dishes and classic drinks in an intimate, historical environment. This antebellum building, once a favorite haunt of Tennessee Williams, is now home to a menu featuring duck quesadillas, classic New Orleans BBQ shrimp, muffalettas and more. Dine on the balcony or in the intimate courtyard, or join the local crowd after hours for quick bites and cocktails.
