Court of Two Sisters
Due to the damage caused by Hurricane Katrina, the following description may no longer be accurate. Please consider this when making your travel plans. Two Creole sisters who originally owned a notions shop serving only the finest of ladies established this appropriately named restaurant. Constructed in 1880, the restaurant stands on the same site as their first establishment. This historic building is enveloped in an ambiance found only in the Vieux Carre. The main reason to visit this restaurant is for its Jazz Brunch Buffet. It features more than 60 dishes including meat, fowl, fish, vegetables, fresh fruits, homemade bread and pastries. Overall, this Creole dining experience will capture your heart as well as your tastebuds. World-renowned food and a courtyard equally impressive makes this a dining experience not to be missed.
Can't be a beautiful outdoor garden and great breakfast. It's buffet-style, but it's good. Fantastic biscuits and eggs benedict. Everything else was very solid.
A little pricey for the food quality ($28/person), but you can't beat the decor and all-you-can-eat helping.
I wanted to make sure I had the famous Banana Foster before I left New Orleans. The dessert was very good but very expensive but this is to be expected in the French Quarter. Ambiance was great and you do pay for it. We were one of the last customers for the night and the service was very good even just for dessert. Even though it was expensive the experience was worth it.
The hype is just that, hype. The restaurant and courtyard are beautiful, granted, but the food was terrible. At $28/head for the much advertised "Jazz Brunch" was truly a disappointment. There was alot of food on the buffet to choose from, but even though we were there when they opened at 11 a.m., the quality and taste was way below what you would expect at this price. The best item I had was Eggs Benedict that is brought fresh to your table when requested. And, the fresh fruit was good but nothing out of the ordinary.
The "Jazz Group" consisted of two people, one playing banjo and the other on a clarinet. Not what I would expect given the advertising.
Definitely will not go back and readers, don't waste your money here. There are much better places if you want great food.
Court of Two Sisters is fantastic, the place just has a wonderful ambiance that enhances the experience overall. I had the catfish, and my companion the pasta, on the waiter's recommendations, and they were both just delightful. The waiter lacked polish, but made up for it with a ready smile and desire to do things right. This is a place perfect whether its a romantic dinner for a special celebration, or a place to take your mother. Its not a cheap experience, on any level, but still reasonable. Its a definite must-do any time you are either visiting New Orleans or entertaining out of town visitors.
Everything was Excellent. The food was to die for, the atmosphere was beautiful and the service was exceptional. I recall our waiter was very nice. He explained all the specials to us because we were visiting for the first time from Chicago. The food was so good and prepared perfectly that we took pictures of our plates. I recommend everyone visiting New Orleans to come here. See you again soon.
At The Court of Two Sisters, I was seated in the courtyard and it was delightful. The service was perfect, always attentive but not too much. The food was fabulous. We feasted on a delicious buffett brunch that allows you to try many New Orleans classics. The grits were divine, just the perfect creaminess. I also throughly enjoyed the omelet/Eggs Benedict station. The jazz band and the courtyard, complete with fountains and cobbleston, were welcome additions to the atmosphere experience. This is a true New Orleans brunch experience and at just $25 per person, it won't break the bank!
If you want to have a true New Orleans bruch, this is your place. Aside from the BS "Mimosa is our breakfast of choice in New Orleans" speel from the waiter this is a really cool place to eat brunch. Great eggs benedict, good food (could have better champagne), and some decent drinks makes this the place to go.
My husband and I left Connecticut from the cold and snow. We arrived in New Orleans for lunch and to the the Court of Two Sisters for an outstanding bouffet lunch, sitting in the court yard with the sun and the birds singing along with the orchestra playing. Excellent food, atmosphere and hospitality.
I hope and pray that some day it will have survived the horrible hurricane. It is one of my favorite memories of Military life in both Biloxi and Gulfport and of my brief moments in the Weill Brothers Philatelic establishment.
Thank you, Harry H., Dayton, OH
