We stopped in this restaurant just to have a drink and take a break from all the walking. We weren't hungry, but the waitress kept passing by with plate after plate of fried chicken that looked golden and crispy with an aroma that made my...More

Escaped the craziness of a Saturday night on Decatur and came in here for an early supper. It was pretty quiet, but the sound of old jazz echoed in the rather large space and I was treated to a delicious small plate of hanger steak...More

Service was great for a non reservation New Ysar's Eve however the food (fried chicken) was average. The bar was very "vanilla" with little choice. This place used to be a very good place but the entire menu is changing with very average tasting food.

I ate at the original Fiorella's years ago and it was a night and day difference in the ambiance with the rebuild. It's now very elegant and more like a wine bar. We ordered the fried chicken and it was delicious. We split a Caesar...More

If you want to experience true Southern fried chicken in the French Quarter, Fiorella's would be the place, long known for it's delectable mouth-watering fried chicken. For a mere $16 you get half a chicken (separated into its respective parts) with just the right amount...More

There's a new Chef in town and his name's Yazz! This Escoffier Master Chef is keeping Fiorella's World Famous Fried Chicken on the menu, but offers the finest New Orleans Cuisine and very reasonable prices.

Took our reservation on Open Table for Thanksgiving, then when we arrived told us no reservation and made no attempt to help us. Very rude staff. Thanks for nothing.

Sunday afternoon and we stopped here for a mid-day meal of fried chicken. Told that the servings are large we split one. It came with a good potato salad and a mediocre biscuit. In the background a quartet played jazz standards. Did not have desert....More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
