This family-owned famous restaurant has created a casual and comfortable spot in the French Quarter. A full bar with sports and news television adds to the casual, fun atmosphere. Remoulade's plays host to a daily New Orleans food festival offering everything from gumbo, chock full of fresh seafood and good old American burgers. Regardless of what you choose, the price is always fair.
I would recommend above all the shrimp Arnaud and if you tourists can stomach it the turtle soup. Most things are good except the pizzas. Service is quite good and if a mistake is made they will go the extra mile to correct it. GO to Remoulade!!
Although Remoulades is inviting because of it's much cheaper prices than everything else on Bourbon Street it was dissappointing. The decor is nice and the place is inviting, but the food just didn't cut it. I had the Taste of New Orleans, which is a combo taster. It included a small bowl of Seafood Gumbo that was generous with the shrimp, but apparently there was a shortage of okra. I only had one slice in the whole bowl. It was served barely warm and it was very bland and lacked seasoning. I had to add about 15 shakes of Tabasco and a few shakes of salt to even get it to somewhere around tasty. That was served with French Bread that tasted very much like cardboard - seriously. After the gumbo I was served the 1/2 order of red Beans with a little scoop of rice and two slices of Andouille sausage. It too was barely warm. Along with thae beans came a Stuffed Crab. It was cold in the middle and I had to spit out big pieces of shell four times. It was seasoned well and might have been good if it was hot all the way through. What was very obvious to me was the fact that this food was pre-cooked and warmed as ordered. That's shameless in any restaurant that advertises as fresh. All in all this might be considered a value on Bourbon Street and the French Quarter overall since in most restaurants the average entree is around $26-$30. My advice is to pay the premium if you want to experience "real" creole food in this tourist trap town. Service was good and the place was clean, but the food was a letdown.
