I had the beet salad and the corn and crab bisque one night with table service, and everything was truly excellent. Another night, I just had drinks at the bar (Oh, Snap! Ginger). The cocktail was great, and the bartenders were very attentive. Highly recommend!

I’m usually very skeptical about restaurants that are attached to hotels, so I was unsure about how I would like Luke, but I LOVED it. About a 10 minute walk from our hotel on Canal street, I found it to be in a relatively convenient...More

Good seafood. Nothing special. Small restaurant good for a light dinner. Nice that it was only an elevator ride away and several blocks away from the Mondo Cane that the French Quarter has become. Please help the wait staff to develop a personality, as most...More

We went for their happy hour, for oysters and cocktails. We arrived a few minutes before happy hour ended, they were gracious enough to let us order. The staff was very nice but we were very disappointed with the oysters. They were not cleaned well...More

There was a group of us that had a late lunch. My ham and cheese sandwich was very good - but the French fries were cold - and most of the group that got soup said it was only lukewarm and the service was very...More

Luke was the perfect spot for our family meal together. Every dinner was amazing and our server, Rich was one of the best and funniest waiters I’ve ever had! This spot exceeded our expectations and help make a special memory in Nola.

The menu isn’t large, but has something for everyone. The appetizer portions are large, so use caution. We overdid them and only had salad and dessert for dinner. Service is fantastic. Make reservations or be prepared to wait.

The service at Luke is wonderful. Wanted to try Turduken, they had it on the menu. Tried it ... nothing special. The sides were great and the combo oyster platter was wonderful. We’ll be back to try something else.

French food at it’s best. We hit the end of happy hour so dinner beckoned us! The crab bisque was sensational the seafood was fresh and tasty. Luke’s is a hit breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

Luke New Orleans is Besh's homage to the grand old Franco-German brasseries that once reigned in New Orleans. Luke offers an extensive French, German, and Belgian beer selection, including three exclusive house brews [custom-made in Louisiana]. The cuisine is unaffectedly Old World, using slow and traditional cooking techniques. The wine list features reds and whites from the Loire, Alsace, and Savoie regions, as well as Badischerwiens of Germany. Since opening in 2007, Luke has been hailed by Conde Nast Traveler, Travel + Leisure, and The Times-Picayune Lagniappe, which awarded Luke an impressive three bean-ranking for its "disarmingly home-spun culinary touches and broad-shouldered dishes that satisfy something more than just an appetit."
