Creole Buffet in the French Quarter Nov 16, 2015
When my wife and I spent a long weekend in New Orleans this past October (first time us both), the one thing we made sure was that our restaurants were all planned out - breakfast lunch and dinner. One of the recommendations on our list was the Court of Two Sisters on Royal St in the French Quarter. The curb appeal of this restaurant is very cool - looks super old and has a long stone tunnel leading to the restaurant that opens up to a tree covered courtyard with the rest of the restaurant surrounding it. Since the weather was nice and not too hot, we decided to sit outside under the trees. They have a brunch with live music every day, then transitions into an a la carte menu for dinner (the menu is also available for lunch if you do not want the buffet). The courtyard was beautiful with plenty of shade, and featured a 3 piece jazz band for entertainment. As for the food, the quantity was certainly there. I am not one to eat a gigantic lunch, but you could certainly eat to the point of not needing a dinner if you wanted to. The quality of the food was hit and miss - some of the offerings were excellent; some were not. I particularly enjoyed some of the more traditional Cajun items such as the gumbo. They also had a nice salad bar with unique cold salad options and all the gulf shrimp you could eat. If you are a dessert fan, then you absolutely cannot miss their Bananas Foster which was the highlight of the line. Not sure I would go back here but it was definitely important to at least check the block. Skip breakfast and go hungry at around 1100 and you will be good to go for dinner later that evening!

I had dinner here on a visit to Nawlins in 1999. The food, service and ambiance was quite good, though somewhat on the expensive side.

Best Buffet Jan 21, 2013
My wife, some friends, and I were concluding a weekend stay in New Orleans and before we all had to go to the airport we decided to have one last meal together. A local had recommended The Court of Two Sisters so we looked into it and found it wasn't too terribly far from the hotel. The local had warned us that it was a little pricey but that was somewhat of an understatement. The brunch buffet cost us $32 each. Now before I could groan too much about the price I decided it would be best to actually look at what the buffet had to offer. The atmosphere was very nice and included a jazz band that rotated sets between the indoor formal dining area and the expansive outdoor courtyard. We sat inside because it was still a little frigid outside and went to line up for the buffet.

Brunch had both a hot and a cold buffet line. The cold buffet line was nearly empty as it included a salad bar, a dessert bar, and a shrimp cocktail bar. I say it was nearly empty because the main attraction was the hot buffet side. It began with a custom omelette and eggs benedict station. The omelette was good but because of the hastiness in which it was cooked the cheese and the eggs weren't fully integrated. Meaning the omelette wasn't bad, but I've certainly had better. After that station they had the obligatory carving station. The turkey was amazing! Then it opened up to the actual hot buffet which included all sorts of crazy delicacies. Turtle soup, cajun hashbrowns, grits and grillades, the best bacon I've had in a while, and even some gumbo. The food seems heavy but is actually kind of light and didn't bog us down the rest of the day while we were traveling.

The only knock on The Court of Two Sisters was the price. Even with a good atmosphere and great food it seemed a little excessive. But maybe that's more of a personal opinion than a general consensus.

Great ambience, terrible food May 18, 2011
As an hors d'oeuvre I ordered the Seafood was disgusting so the waiter exchanged it for the turtle soup (which he explained is really alligator..go figure). It tasted exactly like soy sauce and A-1 steak sauce mixed in a bowl...really awful.

The only good thing about the meal was the bread and the caesar salad.

For an entree I ordered the Seared Duck Breast A l'Orange... it sounded like it would be sweet and delicious - wrong, it was so chewy (I've had duck and know it is fatty but this was beyond chewy) and the sauce was not as sweet as I expected, it tasted like it had soy sauce in it (it tasted like the chef just added soy sauce to everything!!) The side dish of dirty rice was disgusting, the only thing halfway decent was the sweet potato puree, although the chef (who surprise, surprise was the owner's cousin) used wayyyyy too much ginger.

The "fresh" strawberry dessert was not fresh at all, the strawberries were hard and unripe (more white then red!).

Overall, this place is aesthetically pleasing, very beautiful, but the food is disgusting and I would NEVER go there again.

Best Meal Ever Jul 07, 2011
Their Jazz brunch is one of the best meals I've ever had. Their courtyard is great on a sunny day with Ivy growing up the walls. The Jazz band is good. I ate their for two hours. The Duck and Crawfish were especially good.

I had "trout Clemenceau" the waiter wrote out the description for me as follows: "pan-seared speckled trout on a bed of brabant potatoes, petit pois, sauteed shrimp & mushrooms with chopped bacon covered with Citrus Buerre blanc...
