Looked like a cute dining spot. Unfortunately we were not able to eat there. The waiter threw the menus on the table before we sat down and after waiting for 15 minutes we never saw him again so we decided to leave. No one needs to be treated that way. I'd you don't like your job don't take it out on the customer. Another table of customers also left after no one waited on them as well.

I think management needs to take a look at their wait staff. After all customer service is all part of the experience.

We enjoyed our first dinner here on a busy weekend with Comic con attendees all over town. The restaurant is tucked away & is very small. The 2 owners do everything: greet, take orders, cook,
& check on their customers: very nice. Food was good. I had shrimp creole, a large serving with nice spicy flavor. My companion had red beans & rice which he liked. Bread pudding for dessert: yum. Parking can be an issue in Old Town on weekends but definitely worth the time to try this spot. Recommended.

The New Orleans Creole Cafe is in Old Town San Diego and a bit off the beaten path. We had the Alligator sausage as an appetizer and I enjoyed a Blackened Chicken salad with a fabulous remoulade and my husband had the Muffuletta salad, equally tasty. The owners took great care to make sure that we were well taken care of. We highly recommend a visit!

One of our group wanted to have some Creole food so we went to the only place in town. New Orleans Café in Ol Town. The food was pretty good but not exceptional but I have spent a fair amount of time eating in NO La. The Alligator sausage was pretty average. The F onion soup was Ok but the bread crouton should be toasted and not just fresh bread with cheese on top onions were puree and should have more bulk, Gumbo was good chicken & Sausage combo. Shrimp Creole with sausage was good but not outstanding, Crawfish Etouffee was rich and the best dish. Fried Shrimp was cooked perfect but I did not try it. Overall the meal was pretty good but not exceptional.
