Best Private Room for Saturday night dinner

Hi all... Coming to town in late March from New York, with 15 guys in tow for a bachelor party. After heading to NOLA some years ago for my bachelor party, I fell in love with the food, music, etc etc, and have been back for mutiple jazz fests, and look to make it a yearly tradition in my life.

We had a great private dining experience at Galatoire's that first trip and I'd like to find another restaurant of that caliber to do the same for this trip. We are all in our 30's and have the means to dine at one of the big boys, so I'm looking for something fairly high end for this meal. I completely understand that with the older restaurants it's often a compromise in either a bit of service or food quality, but we're looking for an overall, great, uniquely New Orleans dining experience.

So y'all... Please give me your thoughts on the best private dining room you've experienced in your wonderful city.

  1. Sorry all. Guess I already committed a Chowhound faux pas. I'll search the other threads for private room ideas. Thanks.

    1. Muriel's has several private rooms. I think you would enjoy dining there. They also have a nice balcony overlooking Jackson Square if you would like to have drinks outdoors. Enjoy your visit.

      Muriel's @ 801 Chartres St., New Orleans, LA. 504 - 568 - 1885.

      1. Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse has a private room overlooking Iberville Street. I'm pretty sure we had more than 15 in there.

        August has some nice rooms upstairs.

        Rib Room at the Omni Royal Orleans has a great private room, and Chef Rene is there now.

        Restaurant August
        301 Tchoupitoulas Street, New Orleans, LA 70130

        Rib Room Rotisserie Extrrdnr
        621 Saint Louis Street, New Orleans, LA 70140

        Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse
        716 Iberville St, New Orleans, LA 70130

        1. A couple of additional options might be:

          G W Fins - nice private dining room, though I think that it is full at 20, but 15 should fit fine.
          Restaurant August - while they have space upstairs, the "wine room" should be just what you want.



          Oops, now I see that EC mentioned Restaurant August. Missed that.

          1. Antoine's has a riotous superfluity of private rooms. I am partial to the Proteus Room for groups of 15 or more. Rex Room, 1840 Room etc.
