Came here to sit on the balcony upstairs! Great views...but then it went down hill. We waited almost 40 minutes for our food until the waitress came out and said a large party ordered all the appetizers and 2 members of our group had to change their order. They have them a free beer each but still not very kind. After an hour they gave us our food. I had the fries with pulled pork app and it was very good but not worth the wait or for poor service

Decided to try this place after being harassed by doorman every time we walked by. Service was great but food was awful. Gumbo was inedible, chicken in jumbala was tough and stringy. Shrimp appetite has sauce in half and was blah. Definitely keep walking

Came across the restaurant during our walk on Bourbon St. Our server was great. Had the red beans and rice, it was good, but not as good as expected. Atmosphere is very nice.

Great location for a quick stop. We were looking for a place where we could sit in a balcony to recycle some of the beads and look at people walking on Bourbon Street. We ordered boudin, fried alligator and some drinks. Very nice stop.

Well...service was not as friendly as other places have been. The server seem bothered by our presence. We were a party of 7 so we required some patience. The appetizers came without all the dipping sauces but no one check on us- I didn't get asked for 2nd drink- the server did not ask if the meal was okay- nor did water get refilled. The jambalaya was over salted and the crawfish Mac and cheese was bland and fell flat ofDefinitely a disappointment. This is an annual conference- our 5th yr and we tend to make regular stops at places we enjoy. The Cornet is off the list- there are plenty of other places that shine.

What a great restaurant. The Oyster poboy and red beans and rice were spectacular. Highly recommended!!!

Delicious food and exceptional service, Holly was our waitress and she was amazing. She answered all our questions about the menu and helped us with all our needs (even looking for an outlet that work to charge the phone). The food came out very fast and everything was so fresh. Very good experience.

I came in because of the fantastic energy coming from the inside. The Super Bowl was on and it's Bourbon Street. Totally wonderful and loud combo. There were 8 large flatscreens that I could see. I ordered a lemon drop from a very nice waitress named Charlotte. She was the only thing good thing here. The lemon drop was too tart (definitely needs more simple syrup and too Teeny--weeny.) It was $9.94 for a small drink. But I guess it's NOLA on Bourbon Street. She brought it to me and totally disappeared, into the abyss, never to be seen again. I even got up to look for her to pay and she was nowhere to be found. I must say ZERO TIP! Another waitress said she might have gone to the bathroom but literally FOREVER! Also as a vegan there is nada here.

Food wasn't that great or service and pricey

Right in the middle of the action! Food was good but all drinks served in plastic cups even when you sit in. Reasonable value

Had great experience at the bar with service and the fries below. The bartender made the experience. Took off one star because we came back again that day and tried some other food which was just average.

Lunch on the upstairs balcomy for a great view of Bourbon Street! I had a traditional "Po-boy" sandwich - delicious!!!

Stopped her for dinner our first night in NOLA. Sitting on the top deck patio gave us an amazing view of the night life and what was happening on the street level. Our waitress was amazing and made great recommendations (besides the mac and cheese...not sure why it's so hard to find good mac in NOLA but I digress...). I ordered some type of drink with blueberries in it. Though very sweet, it was strong and delicious. I ordered chicken tenders and fries and my friend ordered catfish. My chicken could have used a bit more seasoning but was enjoyable. The catfish was cooked well also. When I return to NOLA, I would not mind grabbing a quick bite to eat here as it was pretty low key but still gave us a good view of the action below.

Great service at the bar from a female bartender yesterday. So good in fact we came back later for more food on the balcony. They treat you very well here. The picture is the flambeauex fries and they were excellent.

Mediocre. Came here mostly for the patio view though. Our server was nice. Fried shrimp had a sugary sauce on it that it didn’t need. Hurricane tasted (and felt) like it had no booze in it. All drinks come in plastic cups. But that patio....

Even the Third Time was not a CHARM.

Christine Stark

Got off to a rocky start, but server definitely stepped up. It's Christmas so not holding anything against them. However, management was less than helpful. They really needed to roll up their sleeves and jump in..

The positives: 1) Good value for the money. 2) Great service from Ajay. 3) They had the 49er-Ram game on. 4) History all around, including a view of Preservation Hall. 5) The connection between the founders of the business, the Karnos (aka Karnofskys) and the great Louis Armstrong, proudly displayed throughout the restaurant. Visiting New Orleans means visiting the birthplace of Satchmo and of jazz, and nowhere is this connection more solid than in Cornet and the places Armstrong frequented (including those on South Rampart Street) and in Louis Armstrong Park. It was only after I returned home to California that I realized that the Karnos actually opened and owned Cornet; I'm so glad we stumbled across it. While the jubilee shrimp was too spicy for my friend, I though it was just right. I also enjoyed my fried alligator appetizer, and the cole slaw was just what I needed to balance things out. The quiet, friendly, and welcoming Ajay rocked it on service. The only down side was the hurricanes, which seemed a bit on the small and weak side. Long live Big Ass Beers!

Great Experience, Good Food and Holly C. made it a welcoming environment. I be coming back for sure!

Great food and talkative staff. A wonderful place to stop in and take a break.

There aren't words to accurately describe how good the food is here. The staff and atmosphere was very pleasant. Highly recommend it!

This restaurant is right at Bourbon Street, they have patio seating that you can sit outside with an amazing view of the Bourbon street. First we ordered the sampler, three small Cups of Red beans & Rice, Jambalaya and Gumbo. All of them three were good, but I think it could use some more salt & pepper to taste better. For the main dish, I ordered the Shrimp Creoles, I almost didn't eat it because of the shrimpy tasted, I mean by that, shrimp didnt taste cooked enough, and the tomato sauce tasted like plain. Then they topped it with some rice (looks like two spoonful of rice, and being an Asian, I was expecting a little more rice than that!) LoL My friends ordered Jambalaya, she said it tasted better then we had earlier on this trip. Rice her a little dry, could use sauce or something. My other friend ordered the Jambalaya Shrimp, looks like an appetizer for the portions. I think for the portions they are a little smaller servings than I expected for the prices. And lastly, I wasn't able to use my Yelp coupon for 50% off for the appetizer I ordered. Thou manager came by to our table and told me to marked my coupon used, and she will take care the discount. When the server brought the ticket, I was still charge full price for the appetizer, and the server insisted the discount was applied to the whole ticket. I tried to explain and showing him the coupon and the receipt showing no discount, but yet continued to tell me something else!!! To all Yelpers, if you wanna use your coupon deals at this place, make sure your server knows how to apply/adjust your discount.

We enjoyed the food. We did have to wait a bit to get a table, but the views from the outdoor balcony tables were fantastic.

Great menu options. A little on the salty side, but overall good. Great for groups or families.

I stopped here while drinking on Bourbon Street! I had a cheeseburger and fries with chocolate cake and ice cream for dessert (I was really hungry). We sat at the bar and ate. It was pretty good!

If I could give the place a no star for hosteds service I would. We came in to sit on the balcony we were told by the hostess (a man) that it would be a 45 wait and he seated us inside at a dirty table and was mad he had to bus a few items from the table. Not 2 minutes later before we placed even a drink order, he sat a group that just walked in outside. When questioned why he didnt sit us he explained he couldn't we already had a server. Really? no one had come to the table yet. He refused to move us. Although the food is good the hostess service needs an overhaul. We were looking for a great experience and it was marred by his behaviors. The server and the manager were fantastic and the food great.

Great food and drinks! Loved the potato salad.

I love the history, food and service was great. The heart of Bourbon st. Sounds good too. I recommend the balcony

Benjamin Parrish

Great place, right on Burbon street. A little pricey, but the Shrimp Creole was good. For myself, my wife, our three kids, and my mama (who only got a salad) it was $160 with tip. Would have liked to see more Creole cuisine on the menu. Teddy, our waiter, did an excellent job. Thanks Teddy.

Glen Farrell

Very tasty food. Great customer service as well. The view from the balcony is nice as you can experience the sights and sounds of the city.

Jennifer Enloe

After being in the French Quarter for 3 days, I thought slow service and lack of getting drinks refilled etc was a normal part of things. WRONG. We stumbled upon this place and HANDS DOWN, the best service we have had thus far. Our server was Sharice and the manager even walked around to make sure we were happy. Drinks refilled before they were gone, QUICK service and GOOD food!!! This place is a must!!

Alyssa Crosby

Disappointed in the portion sizes for the prices. Flavor was good, though. Chicken tenders were good. Service wasn’t great.

This photo represents a mixed drink called a mimosa at the Cornet Restaurant on Bourbon Street in New Orleans Louisiana. I've been to 15 different restaurants and ordered the same drink and usually in a glass what about 16 oz of liquid not including ice. Upon my initial complaint to the manager, he then he explained since we are on the upper deck they cannot we serve this drink in a glass container which is why the cup is plastic. Totally missing the point, I made it known to the manager that the drink was received in a plastic cup that was half empty, literally. The manager then look at me with a straight face and asked me whether or not I would like a smaller cup. Knowing that this man was looking at me insulting my intelligence he kept the conversation more focus on the fact that the drink had to be served in a plastic cup rather than glass telling me that it would look different if you served it to me and a regular Fountain glass and only appearing to be a small portion in a plastic cup. I would strongly suggest if you want more bang for your buck and ordering a drink with your meal, do not bother coming to this restaurant because not only do they rip you off they insult your intelligence and belittle you.

Three stars but mostly for the location. Service was slow and not really concerned if you were were happy. One person ordered the Flambeaux Fries and they arrived with no pulled pork. When we asked our waiter he said he thinks they must have been out of it. Said he would check. He has since avoided our table.
