    We always love going to Houmas House Plantation and The Carriage House Restaurant. We had a wonderful meal on Saturday evening 1/21/23. My husband had the Gumbo (loves it) and I had the Carriage House salad. Both delicious. We had the lamb chops special dinner and the grilled chicken. Both highly recommended. The rooms that you dine in are interesting and beautiful. Service is fantastic. Do not miss having the bread with the maple pecan butter - which they make. Totally delicious and relaxing great dining experience. Also love walking to and from the restaurant. The grounds of the plantation are perfectly manicured and beautiful. Great gift shop, too!

    Outstanding starters and menu choices. Something for everyone. Quality of ingredients is apparent from the crab cakes to eggplant napoleon. The pumpkin curry bisque is an exceptional dish. !!! Friendly staff. Beautiful grounds. An amazing dining experience.

    The menu is sparse. Very limited appetizer menu and nothing that is shareable for the table. Appetizer portions are so small that you have to order several for the table to share and there is not enough room on the tables for all the plates. There used to be a charcuterie on the menu but they removed it which was very disappointing. I do not care for anything sweet or fried and every entree on the menu is fried or has brown sugar side or fruit reduction sauce on it. I ended up having a small wedge salad but the others at the table really enjoyed their chicken and eggplant dishes.
