    We went on Monday which was Fried Chicken night. Chicken was good. Crispy and good amount of spiciness but not too much. Very nice lounge setting with good spacing. I wish they served other dishes other than the chicken.

    We had heard about fried chicken Mondays, but could never stay until Monday evenings in NOLA. Finally, made it happen, and it was so worth the wait! Loved our server and the piano man. Excellent experience!

    The wait staff was very attentive, but not overbearing. The food was of high quality and plenty of food, took home leftovers. I wasn't sure that it would be as great as it was but I would definitely go back, not only for the coolinary, but to try other items on the menu.

    So the food was some of the best in the city. And yes I am comparing it to places Commander's Palace, Neyohs, Dooky Chase, etc. The fondue, grouper and half chicken were simply amazing. The service was also amazing. We will be back.

    My husband, sister, and I visited New Orleans to see Hamilton. We had brunch the next morning. It was wonderful. My husband and I both got the buffet; there was excellent food and plenty of it. My sister just got an English muffin. She wanted a banana, and when we asked they found one for us. I also drank a mimosa. I was most impressed with our server. She was very helpful!

    Great place for food and drinks before seeing Hamilton. Only mark down was for the cheese board - a bit boring, needs more is variety - too much hard white cheese.

    I know that they were short staffed so this is not a negative review just some constructive criticism!! 100% for trying very hard to handle customers in the midst of a recession. Such an extravagant restaurant at a extravagant hotel should not be serving cold gumbo in the smallest cup. Salad said there was kale but it was mostly romaine , the chicken was the best thing in the menu , cornbread was also cold and wasn’t interested in the tomatoe rice ?? Not sure what kinda of rice that was. Management tried their best, staff tried their best, so I will return one day, maybe my experience will be better . The old fashioned drink was delish !! So we are grateful for everyone trying but I KNOW the quality of the food can be better for the price

    Went before theatre performance. Seated immediately with reservation. Had dinner & got out in time to walk back to Saenger on time. 6p reservation, 8p show. Very nice hosts, servers, eager to please. Nice jazz music, kinda loud for how small the lounge is. Big bar, comfortable tables, pricy, but it’s the Roosevelt…. Nice experience.

    I’ve been 3 times. I will not be going back. The Ritz Carlton across the street offers EXCELLENT customer service and a great experience. The first time at the Fountain Lounge was nice the next two times have been very disappointing. The service was atrocious and the buffet is overpriced. Do better.

    We booked a late Mother’s Day brunch. When we arrived there was no table available. We ended up sitting at the bar. We decided to have the Buffet. Half of the items advertise on the Buffet were not readily available. We currently had to ask the Waite staff to replenish items. The staff was very pleasant but spent more time standing around than making sure the guests were satisfied. Will not go back.

    We wanted to escape the heat of Jazzfest for a cool air conditioned restaurant and found it. We tried the special at the server’s recommendation and it was fantastic! A new chef that is cooking very flavorful New Orleans food fit enough for foodies. Wine selection by the glass was decent. Server was attentive and whole staff was friendly. Try this restaurant!

    Let me begin by saying we have been to the Fried Chicken Monday's at the Fountain Lounge since it began. Chef's Carl's fried chicken has always been the best and the experience has been wonderful. Last night, we brought a couple from out of town in for dinner. They had seen my IG page with the chicken and were anxious to try it. Last night was an epic fail. Service was terrible. The restaurant was half full and diners were walking out after not receiving their orders. We should have followed their lead. We ordered two orders of the chicken, 6 pieces to an order and double sides. Finally, after what seemed like an eternity, the chicken arrives. We quickly realized this was a single order with five pieces of chicken. We brought it to the attention of our server, who appeared lost, and the host. Nothing. No chicken. Finally, we said forget it. When the check arrived, surprise! Two chicken dinners were charged. Tried to get someone to fix it, no one seemed to care at all. I had no choice and pulled it from our server's tip. My bet is, she never even noticed. With no management to be found, I called the hotel when I returned. The reply from the front desk, sorry, the restaurant manager is not picking up. They took my information and assured me someone would call. Nadda. Still no call. Apparently they don't care. I am sympathetic. I understand that it is hard to help these days and most people are short staffed. My issue is, this is fried chicken night. Chicken served in a restaurant that is only serving chicken, should not be dropped when the order is placed. It should constantly be being fried. When Carl was there, the chicken and the liquor flowed. What is most disappointing, is the simple fact that no one cares. No manager on site and no return call. We are the locals who come to your restaurant in the summer, when you are slow. Not like tourists who are one and done. I had one drumstick and two drinks. Total, $208! Before tip!

    Went for the Monday fried chicken, red beans fixed dinner. Waited while other diners came, ordered, ate and left. Multiple inquiries to waiters and the manager who seemed to be running around doing nothing. Finally walked out after one hour, never got any food. Very poorly run. Went over to Luke for a very nice dinner and service.

    We eat here because it is convenient, but menu offered does not reflect the hotel. The menu is extremely limited. I would expect mid to fine dining menu selection. It is basically a bar menu.

    Good food but not kid friendly. Seems more for business people. No highchairs, no kids menu, server acted like our child wasn't there. They didn't bring her water, plates, or silverware without asking. Our 20 month old liked the food. The bread pudding was the best I've ever had.
