The Delta Grill was one of the city's first New Orleans-themed restaurants, and it's still one of the best. Creole aficionados will find inauthenticities, of course, but the food is wholesome and well-seasoned, which is more than a lot of places in New Orleans can say.
Best Cajun food ever! – I have been to Delta Grill over a dozen times in the last two years and it is truly amazing how good the food there is whether I eat there or take it home. Trust me when I say you can't go wrong if you love Cajun food.
Try this place! – Went here the other day with a friend who recommended the place, and was excited to try the fried green tomatoes as I'd never had them before. Was pleasantly suprised at how spacious the place was. Very cozy & unpretentious with pretty xmas lights decorating the place--dimly lit, music not too loud (so you could enjoy it but still have a conversation), staff very cheery. Nice & warm with a mellow feel, perfect for a cold winter's night. The fried green tomatoes were yummy (love the pepper cream sauce), as was the chicken lenore recommended by the waitress. We were not rushed out of there like you are in some NY restaurants; if anything it almost took too long to get the bill. Wish I had room to try more of the menu, but as it was I had leftovers to take home. I will be back!
home from home – i never would guessed there was so much new orlean here in new york but damn this place is good. i may amke a quest to do a new orelans tour of new york city. they tell me the ownere here is fom nola borna nd raised but he was not around today to say hi i'll stop by again hopefully catch him then
so good! – never had southern food before this unless i was in virginia. this was delicious, been there a few times and never had something i didn't like, including stuff off other peple's plates that i didn't order! mac and cheese is great, chicken is a HUGE portion for the price, ribs are delicious....AND they have a decent beer selection.
Felt like I was back in New Orleans – The Delta Grill is a little piece of New Orleans in NYC. The choices on the menu make it hard to pick just one thing. The Jambalaya is nice and spicy...delicious. The best part of dinner was the Bananas Foster, one of my favorite desserts. Definitely leave some room for that, the serving is enough for two people.
Tasty food – This is a great spot for cornbread and cajun cuisine - I've only dined here once but would definitely go back for more.
Little piece of New Orleans.. – From the outside this place doesn't look like much, but once you go in you are surprised. From what I've seen this place looks like it belongs in the French quarter with its decor even though I've never been there. The staff was more than pleasant, they really valued customer service. The food, well, my bbq ribs were just about the best I've ever had. The meat just fell right off the bone, they made their own bbq sauce which made it all the better. The mashed potatoes were tasty as well. My friend had the chicken steak which was finger-licking as well. I will go again on a weekend when I am told play live music.
Great pork chops! – We dined there Saturday and it was excellent, I had the pork chops(thick and tender) and my partner had the chicken Lenore,(interesting presentation) we had bananas foster for dessert. The waiter was pleasant and the food was great. I would go back again.
Great Drinks, Excelent service! – We arrived from Boston, hungry and tired and ready for drinks and appetizers and a bit of pampering. We passed many spots and randomly picked the Delta Grill.
The waiter could not have been more patient with us as we (okay, my wife) made her decision on appetizers. She had the Sticky Chicken, which was excellent (decadent, tangy and sweet) and the Crawfish Popcorn was very good and while we left to meet friends, we left wishing we stayed for dinner.
Later, we realized my wide had left her purse on the floor by our table. When we returned 3 hours later, her purse was waiting safely there for her and the manager could not have been nicer.
So we hope you enjoy the Delta Grill for their food, service and honesty! We did!
Comfort Food – My boyfriend and I eat here probably once a month. We live a block or 2 away and find that it hits the spot when all youre looking for is some good southern comfort food (especially when youre hungover!). The entrees are supersized and although I usually dont take doggie bags, in this case I do and i have dinner for another night or two. I find the fried chicken to be a stand out choice ... the chicken is always juicy and they let you mix and match sides from other dishes if you ask (their mashed potatoes have a little kick and shouldnt be missed). Be SURE to order a side of the mac n' cheese to share with someone ... it's hands down the best I've ever had. Prices are totally reasonable.
