If you've read the other reviews - people either love this place or they just don't get it. If we had ventured into Adolfo's on our own, we probably would have been disappointed, but we went with locals who have such a love for this...More

We visited on a weeknight in June. Around 9pm so no wait. They weren’t too busy and most tables were just about to leave. We were sat immediately but waited almost 10 minutes for anyone to come greet us. They didn’t give us menus when...More

This is small, second floor restaurant above the Apple Barrel bar. No reservations, CASH ONLY. There are only 11 tables. The kitchen is tiny, the floor moves when people walk on it. It's very quaint, I would say intimate, but I was alone. The server...More

Serving sizes are large and food taste and presentation is excellent, however very rich. Unfortunately this didn’t agree with me and I suffered for a day afterwards. Perhaps offering some salad or vegetables rather than just more carbs would solve that problem. Recommended but don’t...More

Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward,
the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely
residential. Of course, folks around here love to go
out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere
in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the
festivities, well then so much the better! Home to
some of the most revered live music venues in New
Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining

Cash only. They have an atm inside but there’s a fee to use it. Enjoy your wonderful meal. Get there early to avoid the crowds.

I would call. It's a small kitchen, so they may offer no carb foods but if you have celiac you need to watch the cross contamination of gluten.
