    The restaurant's ambiance could be move inviting. There is no sense of intimacy; the tables are too large. Also the pianist should not dominate the room. Doesn't need to be mic'ed. The music should be in the background. The fried chicken was tasty, but the drinks menu does not complement the food being served.

    We chose the buffet, I ordered sweet tea, the waitress never brought it or came back. We motioned for her and asked for it again, she said "we don't have sweet tea", so I ordered a coke instead. She never brought it and never came back to the table. We asked the host to please get me a coke, he did and was very nice. We never got coffee refills and had to wave her down to get our check. We were supposed to eat there again on Sunday morning but cancelled the reservation and went somewhere else.

    Music too loud, very slow service, food and cocktail terrible. My cocktail tasted like it had soap in it. Caesar salad tasted nothing like a Caesar salad, shrimp cocktail; the shrimp were too salty and not cold enough.

    We ordered drinks and the entree came out before we were served our cocktails. The fried chicken and red beans were very good. We ordered and extra side of beans and split the half a chicken.

    Monday night fried chicken is amazing! Some of the best we have ever eaten. Several pieces in an order, along with delicious biscuits, cole slaw, red beans and rice. Service was excellent. Really enjoyed the piano player/singer as well.

    We specifically went for Monday's fried chicken dinner. The food was really good. I'm very picky with eating coleslaw or red beans and rice, but these were really good! The chicken was crispy and hot! The person singing and playing the piano was very good.

    We had a reservation at 11:15. We arrived at 11:10 and were told our table would be ready soon. We were not seated until 45 mins later. The hostess acted like we were annoying her when asking for an update on when we would be seated and was downright rude. She even rolled her eyes at me and didn’t even speak to us when she sat us at the table. I would hate to think someone visiting our city would be treated so poorly. The manager was very gracious and apologetic for the extreme delay. Our server was very pleasant and our food was good.

    Food was GREAT! Service at hostess desk/check-in was AWFUL! We had reservations and multiple people were seated before us without reservations along with people waiting longer being skipped over due to no set process. The hostess was unapologetic and not welcoming or customer service oriented. We mentioned to the manager that she should not be the first face for everyone coming in. Table service was perfect. Breakfast buffet offerings were plentiful and better than expected.

    Our family dinner was quite lovely, but it almost wasn’t. The first two staff people we encountered made us question whether we had made the right choice. Probably because it was a busy night. Nonetheless, being almost run over by someone wearing a black shirt who turned and said “I work here,” as he raced past us, and then encountering a less than cheerful hostess as we were checking in, we persisted. And we were pleasantly blessed with a lovely night! The website stated that the Reveillon menu would still be available, however, after being presented with the menus for it, we were notified that it was not being offered due to the duck breast being unavailable. Our waiter, Sandra, was personable and accommodating. She discussed the oversight with her manager and provided more than suitable accommodations for my son to have his “first Reveillon” and he LOVED it! The ambience was festive. The piano player and Eddie were both quite entertaining. Overall, my son and I were both glad to have made the Fountain Lounge our choice for our family holiday dinner this year.

    My husband and I ate at Fountain Lounge before going to a show at the Saenger in New Orleans. It was during Christmas, so the Roosevelt was decorated, making the scenery beautiful. The menu is not very large, but everything we ordered was delicious. The cocktail I ordered was also great! We had a reservation, yet upon arrival, we had to wait for almost ten minutes at the hostess station before someone acknowledged us and sat us at a table. It is not a big place, so this was very disappointing. The food was good; the service could be better. We might try it again before another show.

    The food is average and overpriced. The service is terrible. I felt not welcomed dining here. Seated at 8:15, no one even asked if I wanna water until I checked with a server at 8:30. The restaurant was not busy at all. No food allergy check after finished my order. Had 3 dishes. 1. Duck and mushroom gumbo: The duck is tender and soup is thick. A little salty for me. 2. Baked oysters: 18 bucks for just 3??? The top bread scrambles are crispy. No cocktail/chili sauce were provided. A slice of lemon came with the oysters, which makes it hard to squeeze. Oysters were overcooked and the edges were burnt. 3. Louisiana red fish Cou boullion: Fish and shrimps were nicely cooked and seasoned with tomato sauce and spices. The crunchiness and aroma of celery promoted it to the next level. My fav of the night!

    I had written the restaurant before bringing my elderly parents to New Orleans for the holiday. Asked if they would still have fried chicken. Monday, even on Christmas. Said we would cancel our reservation if not. Restaurant replied: told me of course and looked forward to welcoming us! When we arrived: no fried chicken. They told me, “of course not, it is Christmas.” I should have left, but we sat down with no where else to go. Waited more the 25 min for service. Not even water. Waitress then came by to ask if “everything was ok” and we explained we had yet to order anything. Food arrived cold. No one checked in on us. Horrible experience

    Made a reservation and waited an hour and half at my table to receive food, while I watched other people come and go. Not a great place to take kids since it takes so long to get food. Appeared as if they had one waiter for the entire restaurant on a holiday weekend. He came to our table maybe 3 times. Also they added gratuity on for a table of 4 which I thought was strange? Overall was not impressed and will probably not return. My fish was good but my husband said his steak was cold. The manager seemed aware and was nice, this was just disappointing for the price we spent and our first meal in NOLA.

    Oysters were great. The salad had too much frisee and not enough other ingredients. The duck did not have a crispy skin but the dirty rice and yams were great. The bread pudding was average at best. The drinks were greatly over priced

    The service was perfect. I felt special, and my nine-year-old granddaughter was thrilled. It was during the holiday season, and there were crowds in the lobby that evidently spilled over into the lounge. That made the environment very loud and difficult to carry on a conversation. But the comfort of the seating, the wonderful service, and the delicious food made up for it. I would definitely go back for a cocktail or a meal sometime when it is off season.
