The Court of Two Sisters Restaurant Review

: The Court of Two Sisters has a rich history in New Orleans, but may not be your best dollar value. Certainly, on a warm New Orleans night, the romantic wisteria-covered courtyard is a sensual feast for the eye. But, unfortunately, the restaurant is overpriced for what it offers, and better meals are available in other established spots throughout the French Quarter. The daily brunch buffet presents an array of traditional New Orleans dishes (etouffées, turtle soup, jambalaya, bread pudding, pecan pie), but too often the food seems not as fresh as it should be. The dinner menu reads more temptingly than it tastes. Still, The Court of Two Sisters serves some of the best home-churned vanilla ice cream you will ever experience. The uninspired wine list wanders the globe, with most choices coming from big-name producers, although there are a few private label selections out of California. Several wines are offered by the glass.
