Rock Solid '4', 9/26/2009

I have been to New Orleans several times, and have good friends from there, and we all agree Chateau Orleans is very good. I like the jambalaya very much, and my wife liked the Orleans Chicken as... well. Nice folks, very nice atmosphere. Jus Blues Baby and Tomcat Courtney are both terrific blues acts and the Chat has both.

Ok, Here We go......

Real NO man here,,,,,,,dey call me Papa Doc back home and herrre I go: First, this place is pricey for the Gator bites, but Gator here in SD don't come cheap(why I have it shipped in online). Two, the Texas cornbread was ficed right: with cream corn to make it stay moist, just like I make it, when I do. Three: Eggplant Piquant. That fact that this place even KNOWS about Piquant makes it FO' REAL in my book! Now,,,,,do up sum Alligator Sauce Piquant, and I'll be there every week! Oh yeah, you coud kick it up a notch, BAM! Sho ya right! Nuff said.

Fiirst,since I am Creole, let's set the record: the dishes served in the san Diego so-called Cajun restaurants are not only Cajun; Theyn are Creole, and Cajun. Alligator is Cajun and Jambalaya is Creole, along with Shrimp Etouffe, etc. Now, for an honest review; Jambalaya here is great. Alligator is good to, but I'd like to see someone in SD make Alligator Sauce Piquant, a true Creole way to serve gator. Beignets are good, and the only place I found here that serves them. But, since the location is no where near where most Creoles and Southerners live in SD, makes Chateau Orleans not the tops in my book. Magnolia's or Gulf Coast is more centrally located and just as good.

I'm Not Cajun/Creole

I think I can give an honest opinion here: I been to NO, and I been to every so-called Cajun/Creole place in SD. This place definitely has the ambiance, BUT, a tad bit pricey. Gulf Coast is waaay pricey and Magnolia's has the right price, but not the ambiance or service. As far as taste, Magnolia's got the taste catagory down pat.

Best Crawfish Jambalaya!

I'm Creole, and when I say the shrimp/crawfish/sausage Jambalaya is only beat by my own shrimp/crab/crawfish/sausage, then that's REALLY saying summin! Bad part is, I gotta drive 10 miles to get it.

Loved the Food - Spicey

This is one of my favorite restaurants as the food is so flavorful and the atmostphere is fun. The soups are hardy and unique and they give large portions. Everyone there even the employees seems to be having a good time. Truly a good value if you are looking for the total experience and delicious food.

We had a GREAT time here ! !

We double dated and had a wonderful time ! I was surprised how small this restaurant was, but the ambience was right out of New Orleans. The food was plentiful and VERY good ! The Blues/Guitar singer was quite entertaining, providing us with musical trivia throughout our dinner. We were in the front dining area and had him all to ourselves - it was like our very own private concert. We'll be back ! !

Very Disappointed

I saw an ad in the Reader for a restaurant specializing in Cajun cuisine. I was excited for weeks prior to eating there. When I arrived I was happy with the ambiance and disappointed by the blant flavors of my meal. This was far from bursting with flavor the way Cajun food should. I will not return. Magnolia's in San Diego is a much better choice.

What a Great Find!

I tried this cause I got a coupon out of the SD Reader. It was wonderful. The Gator Bites are overpriced for what you get, but everything else if completely worth the money. The portions are huge. I ordered the Holy Trinity, cause I can never pick just one thing, and I expected to receive little samplings of the three items. What I got was a "Claim Jumper" sized bowl divided into sections by rice with the three menu items in the wells. It was huge. The atmosphere is great and the blues musician was awesome. Definately a repeater.

Great Mardi Gras Ambiance

Chateau Orleans is one of the nicest New Orleans style resturants in San Diego. They offer a full New Orleans menu including craw fish, gumbo and redbeans and rice, as well the famous beingnets for dessert. The ambiance is jazzy with Mardi Gras decor. You even get beads on your table setting, just to add to the New Orleans experience. The prices are a little higher than I'd like, though in their favor, you do get good proportions. The service is fantastic and you feel like you're getting personal attention. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for fine dining merged with a fun environment, Mardi Gras style.
