I was told I had to try this place, so while I was in New Orleans I headed up past the Garden District to give it a try.
It’s very popular with the locals, so expect a wait.

After looking over the menu, I realized it wasn’t the best idea to head here without looking at a menu, it was mostly seafood (that looked fantatic) but I just don’t eat it.

I settled for a chicken dish that was quite good, but it was very clear seafood was the specialty.

Yum... Yum... YUMMY!

You people are CRAZY! I’m from New Orleans and take EVERY ONE of my out of town guests here. I have for the last 8 years since I left.

The cheesecake appetizer, the duck, the fried chicken, the atmosphere. Hands down the best in the world. Incroyable. That’s creole French. Because the people who wrote the previous reviews are probably from Canada.

So be sure to hit up the Maple Leaf for a drink or two after (down the street) and have an incredible night at Jacques Imo’s.

Love it!

I agree with sparklovesnola!!!!!! I love absolutly love this place and i am born and raised here too. The fun atmosphere and the food is great. I always get the blakened red fish with the white beans and red beans for my side dishes. The white beans are awesome! We also always get the alligator cheese cake! It is soooooooo GOOD!

We have never had a bad meal here.

Nolachef sounds like a chef who is mad becuase all of the business is at Jaquimos!

Go early or you will have to wait a long time. They take reservations only if you have 5 or more people!

I gave it 4 stars because of the long wait, it can get hot in there, and loud.

Blackened Red Fish

Best red fish i have had in a long time!

the only reason i believe so many people enjoy this place...

the only reason i believe so many people enjoy this place is the owner gets them drunk while they wait for their table. this man just creates a greatest hits of new orleans restaurants and passes them off as his own. not worth the time or money.

4 of 4 stars: memorable, casual dining

(see explanation of ratings below)

When we checked in with the hostess, we were told there was a 20 minute wait.

“What about those two tables at the front door?” we asked.

“They’re a bit chilly [in the dead of winter], but they’re yours if you want them.”


Smothered chicken was just okay. Quail stuffed with bacon, mushrooms, spinach, foie gras and cranberries was awesome!

Get the Godzilla (when in season)!

About $45 person, with drinks and gratuity.

About my ratings:

Only fine dining establishments can garner five stars. Until menuism realizes that a fast food joint cannot possibly be ranked equally with a $100 per person place, I need to draw the line somewhere. If we were only talking about the quality and presentation of the food, it would be a different story. But, as we know, menuism’s rankings take into account the entire dining experience.

Therefore, I divide restaurants into three categories (and I wish menuism would do the same):

1) fast food (no table service)

2) casual dining (table service)

3) fine dining (linen napkins, no plastic cups, no TV’s in dining room, typically more expensive than casual dining)

Fine dining can earn a max of five stars. Casual dining can earn a max of four stars. Fast food can earn a max of three stars.
