Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35+
Ranked: #1 of 94 restaurants in Auckland

You can’t beat this bar, restaurant and live music venue for finger-lickin’ meats, strong liquor and swinging Southern soul.

In the midst of vibrant Auckland Central, a sprawl of heritage buildings set against breathtaking views of the sea, its raw wood and metal finish, easygoing staff and fabulous roster of jazz musicians will whisk you away to the heart of Louisiana.

Roll up your sleeves and get stuck into a menu of big plates, comfort classics and decadent sides. Think loaded waffle burgers and pulled pork po boys, as well as stunning seafood dishes. If you’re hungry as hell, tackle one of the legendary headliner dishes… if you dare!

Gluten-free diners and vegetarians are well catered for, while the drinks selection will make any evening feel like a party.

Pimp your salted caramel milkshake with a shot of spiced rum, go full on cowboy with an enormous selection of American whiskies or opt for one the outrageously good cocktails, including New Orleans classics Ramos Gin Fizz and Creole Red Snapper.

Amazing food! We ordered the vegetarian waffle stack and loved it! The jalapeño poppers, curly fries, and the waffles were highlights, but really we enjoyed everything about that dish! For dessert we had the ice cream cookie sandwich which would've been more enjoyable had the cookies been warmer, as they were a bit hard. We still throughly enjoyed it though. Will definitely be back!

We were in Auckland for the Greta Van Fleet concert which then was cancelled after we booked our flights. So instead, we took our friends out for a meal at Orleans after reading the great reviews online. Beautiful food and atmosphere. Our wait staff were very friendly and helpful AAA+++ New to first table our friends went and paid their half of the bill unaware that I had my voucher to present. No problem for the amazing manager who refunded the payment and recalculated for us. Very patient with me when I asked for things to be explained again (and again) when I got confused. Credit to you all at Orleans, four very happy customers.

Everything was great apart from the PoBoy that I got, the bread was far too crusty and distracted from the filling.

With school holidays on and 7 kids at home, a chilled evening with delicious food was very much needed and “Orleans” definitely came through with the goods. Thank you “Orleans” and “First Table” for a wonderful night.

There's a good reason why this restaurant is rated #1 on First Table. From the sublime slow cooked beef cheek to the unmissable chicken and waffles, the buzzing atmosphere and festive decor sing in this clearly popular hangout and the attentive staff take great care to make sure first timers know what's good and what the specials are. We were blown away when our food arrived less than 10 minutes after putting our order in. Even without the First Table discount the prices are very reasonable and portion sizes are generous. If you see a First Table reservation available - book it without hesitation, you won't be sorry! We'll be back.

Orleans is amazing! From the Service to the Food, Orleans really outdid themselves when my partner and I decided to spend our first dinner date together in the city dining in at Orleans was the best . Quick and easy service as soon as we arrived , super friendly and served in good time after being seated . Food portions I would rate 10/10 especially for their prices , and the quality of the food is a solid 10/10 from me . Looking forward to dining here again

This was our second visit so we went ALL OUT - Fried chicken waffles and cocktails for a end of year get together with a couple of girlfriends.

Had to remind them when paying that we booked an early bird deal - but it was no problem.

The atmosphere was great and vibrant! The food was tantalizing and the highlight was the Gumbo which was full of flavor with southern touch. The Waffle Stack was too sweet for our liking. But overall it was an awesome experience.

From beginning to end dining at Orleans was a fantastic experience. All the staff were very friendly and welcoming, showing a great professionalism and knowledge of wines and food menu. In particular Beth was very accommodating and we enjoyed her service. Ribs portion was very satisfying and nicely made, enjoyed it so much. Furthermore, the Mac n’ Cheese burger was something we hadn’t tried before but we will order it every single time we go back! The setting, decoration and atmosphere make for a very unique experience so very happy with our choice

Just the two of us, having a pre-concert dinner. Food was great, in a Southern style. Lots of interesting items on the menu. Orleans fried chicken waffle had great flavour. Calamari was lighter but also nice. The stand out was the jalapeno poppers, just brilliant. Decor was dark on dark with jazz background music, very French quarter. Definitely go again.

Been to Orleans a couple of times and was very lucky in finding a slot available on First Table.

Great comfort food and you can never go wrong with the classic chicken waffles....was telling my friends that 80% of photos on Zomato are of the chicken waffles.

The gumbo was delicious and full of flavour!!

I came here to catch up with an ex colleague in cbd.
The vibe and atmosphere of the place was fantastic. Not to mention the waiter and waitresses were all very friendly and welcoming. Because it was our first time, they took their time to explain what people usually get and a general +brief explanation of the menu.
We had the waffle stack + ribs. Both items live up to their popularity in terms of taste!

Overall we were very happy with our food + service and will definitely come back
