Hotel Monteleone’s two dining options present guests with the best of New Orleans’ cuisine and entertainment:

Open for breakfast 6:30am to 11am, lunch 11:30am to 2:30pm, and dinner starting at 5:30pm. A review from Gambit and its Best of New Orleans site calls Criollo “a modern Creole restaurant with an open kitchen, smooth, professional service and a bright design that flows in from the landmark bar [The Carousel Bar & Lounge].”
- The Carousel Bar & Lounge—New Orleans’ storied past revolves around you at this award-winning, wild circus–motif lounge, a favorite nightlife spot for locals and guests alike. This "Food Nation with Bobby Flay" featured establishment opens daily 11am to 1am and serves light bites from 11am to 9pm. Chef & Mixologist Kathy Casey ranks The Carousel Bar & Lounge as one of her top 28 remarkable restaurants on Urbanspoon.
