  • The staff at Latrobe's were beyond amazing and helped guarantee that our wedding day was perfect. During the planning phase, Laura and Rylan were responsive and happily answered any questions I had about menu options or floor plans. On our wedding day, Rylan, Laura, and Julian went above and beyond to ensure that my husband and I, our parents, and the bridal party were taken care of. We've received rave reviews from our guests about the gorgeous space and the incredible food. We are so happy we chose Latrobe's for our wedding!

  • This place was unbelievable!! Beautiful, timeless setting, delicious food, and wonderful setup. The bars were never crowded. The food --- omg, the food. The people were so awesome to work with. They were pretty much wedding planners on the day of the event. The bride doesn't have to worry about a thing! I was directed to everything at a certain time - time for cake cutting, first dance, bouquet toss, outfit change, etc... This really made me enjoy my day. My mass ended very early, so we arrived a half hour early - no problem. They were ready for us! I didn't even look at another venue. When you walk into this space, you are blown away.

  • My husband and I were BLESSED to have our wedding at Latrobe's. We predominantly worked with Laura - who I LOVE - and the only thing I had to worry about leading up to and on the day of the wedding was fitting into my dress, LOL (which was AMAZING especially being that I was an out of town bride)! The Latrobe's team takes such great care of you from the first time you walk in to the end of your event. They take care of coordinating with your vendors and ensure the entire event runs smoothly. Quinton & I had a PERFECT wedding and we have to thank Latrobe's (in large part) for it! Side note: The Latrobe's team was very accommodating in allowing us to view the venue multiple times, answering any and all questions we had, offering suggestions, working with our budget, and even added in a last-minute rehearsal (because I started to get nervous that I would mess things up without one!). BEST VENUE EVER

  • There aren’t enough words to describe how much I loved this place. We are from the DFW area, so this was sort of (the grooms family is from NOLA) a destination wedding; familiar with the city but planning from a distance. When we visited (by appt), they immediately instilled in me that they knew what they were doing! During the tasting (delicious), we went over every detail of the reception. I left feeling like they had everything completely under control; I was free to worry about other things! During the reception, I kept waiting for something to go wrong (you always hear 'something will go wrong on your wedding day') but nothing ever did! The band was amazing (you should do everything in your power to get James Andrews) and we danced the night away! At the end of the night we did our Second Line through the Quarter and it was magical. We had a fantastic band AND Mardi Gras Indians (both came with James Andrews). For the rest of the night and since we've been home, all of our guest... Read more

  • The most important and best decision that we made about our wedding was choosing Latrobe's for our ceremony and reception. The venue is stunningly beautiful and really gives guests the feel of authentic New Orleans. It was so nice to have everything inside in a climate-controled space that allowed us all to relax and not worry about what would happen if it rained, or was too hot. That peace of mind was worth more than we can say.  From the moment we booked the space, Jessie and Ryland and their staff took care of all of the heavy lifting. They made well-informed and thoughtful suggestions about their favorite vendors (who became our favorite as well.) During the planning they were both attentive to our specific needs and requests and invaluable with their knowledge and expertise regarding timing, flow and the myriad other details which led to the success of our wedding. They treated us all with respect and patience, and guided us towards decisions which both fulfilled our vision an... Read more

  • Do yourself a favor and book Latrobe's on Royal for your next event (wedding, rehearsal dinner...anything!)! Milli, Jessie, Rylan and team know what they're doing and will do everything they can to make sure you and your guests are comfortable, well fed, happy and having the time of their lives! We booked Latrobe's on Royal for our halloween wedding reception and it was incredible. Every stage of the process was very smooth. The Besh Group does an amazing job of catering and the Latrobe's team works very closely with them to ensure that your cuisine is everything you could have ever dreamed of (go with the oyster bar!). We can't say enough wonderful things about the entire experience. Book Latrobe's...now! And, do it before someone else books your day!

  • Choosing Latrobe's was one of the best decisions we made. My husband and I couldn't be happier. The planning was so easy, the service was incredible, and the venue is gorgeous. Jessie and Rylan were fantastic to work with and made planning enjoyable. They took great care of us. The layout was perfect for our wedding and their recommendations for vendors made a huge difference. They were accommodating, flexible, and patient. Our guests were raving about the location, the service, the food, and the atmosphere. Jessie, Rylan, and the Latrobe's staff made our day extra special. I highly recommend hosting weddings and events at Latrobe's.

  • If you're considering booking at Latrobe's, don't second guess yourself. JUST DO IT. You will not be disappointed. Jessie and Rylan were so helpful through our entire planning process. One of the most helpful things was the 'preferred vendor list' they provided upon booking. We booked everything off of their list: our photographer, band, flowers, ceremony musician, and candles. It made wedding planning so easy! The second we walked into Latrobe's on our wedding night felt like a dream. The venue is so old New Orleans with the perfect french quarter charm. The building without decor is so gorgeous, but oh my goodness when it's lit with candlelight and roses it is just so incredibly romantic. Not to mention the FOOD. Every single dish was to die for. We got so many compliments from our guests about how perfect our wedding was and how delicious the food was. Everyone warned me to be prepared if anything went wrong on my wedding day... but NOTHING went wrong. It was perfect. Latrobe's was ... Read more

  • The venue is beautiful and the food is delicious, but the lack of responsiveness and flexibility is unlike anything I have ever experienced before. It takes weeks to receive a response and I was still getting asked questions about decisions and timeline from the manager the day of and actually during my wedding. The way the tasting was presented was appalling and never once did it feel like Latrobes appreciated our business or was excited for our event. Our wedding was beautiful and all of our vendors were amazing to work with but the venue itself very disappointing with every interaction.

    responded with the following comments.

    Dear Kelly, On behalf of everyone here, we are so very sorry that you feel this way. We do typically work very closely with our clients & their chosen vendors to create the perfect event plan and are very disappointed that we were not able to give you the full, hands-on, Latrobe’s experience. We can only wish that we had more opportunities to work with you & your husband directly. While there is no doubt that an experienced planning team can be a great asset to your wedding weekend, similarly, engaging a planner who is unfamiliar with our space to fully communicate on your behalf can lead to some misunderstandings along the way, as well as day-of. It is true that the historic nature of this building (a museum & national landmark) can limit the degree to which we can be flexible in certain categories; Latrobe's isn’t a raw space, nor a hotel ballroom environment, and in turn we do guide our clients accordingly. We are deeply sad to know that our efforts to engage in discussions on some of these topics with your planning team were not translating prior to the event, nor day-of. Please do know that we absolutely appreciate your feedback & will be discussing all details on our end in order to be able to handle situations like this one in more seamless & productive way. We would love the opportunity to talk with you further, and directly, in order to gain clarity on both sides and discuss all of your thoughts in more detail. Again, sincere apologies that we were not able to get on the same page with you and your planning team. We are very passionate about what we do here at Latrobe’s and are truly, very sorry that you are less than pleased with your experience.

  • Latrobe's on Royal was the perfect location for our "Destination Wedding". The actual space is gorgeous, the food is absolutely delicious, and the staff goes out of their way to make your event perfect! During their busy season, they can take longer than normal to return emails/calls, but otherwise they are very responsive.

  • Couldn't imagine a more beautiful venue! Both the ceremony and reception were perfect, food was wonderful, and the service was great. Planning from a distance they were a little slow to respond to questions about planning, but I think that is because they are always busy with other events. We toured many many venues in New Orleans and this was hands down the most beautiful!

  • All in all I was not pleased with my experience with Latrobe's. I could write an extremely long review explaining all the reasons the experience was less than desirable but instead I will try and sum it up by saying this: The venue is beautiful, the food is great, your guests will have a blast, but if you want to feel like a bride, if you want to feel special, find a venue that truly makes you feel that way. I didn't need much, I knew what I was doing, and what I got was next to nothing. I got the "privilege" of paying to have my wedding at the New Orlean's famous Latrobe's on Royal.

  • We celebrated our wedding at Latrobes, and it was everything we'd hoped that it would be. We have a lot of praise, with only one complaint. First: our customer service wasn't always AMAZING. We planned far beyond a year out to make sure we had the venue we wanted. Initially we worked with a different woman (who has since left) and email was always very quickly returned. Under a new crew, emails were a bit slower. Not really a big deal when we're months out. However, there was never really a "firm" confirmation prior to our tasting (though it did get accomplished), and about a month before our wedding we'd contacted them with some last minute questions, details, and to get final cost. But never got an answer till we called just days prior to our trip to NOLA for the wedding. It all worked itself out and Customer service at the time of our wedding, and even rehearsal, were spot on! During the actual wedding, we barely lifted a finger. We were literally catered on by 3 different... Read more

  • The actual building/venue is quite beautiful. At night it has a very magical feel. Besh 's company does an amazing job with all the food prep. Delicious and beautiful [ both very important]. However, I have NEVER had to deal with such inept and rude people ...ever. And these were the owners! Rylan, their GM was very skilled at cleaning up their messes, and should really do herself a favor and work elsewhere. It was a disaster until the afternoon of our dinner. We had scheduled the time to bring in all flowers, centerpieces, etc., in just enough time to make the rehearsal. Nothing that we has all agreed upon was done. Not one table set up ... in fact the dining room had about 100 chairs in rows filling the room, no linens, no center table for table cards, in fact they were setting up a tasting in the middle room for the afternoon!!! What!? The stress of trying over those months to plan what should have been a totally happy occasion was inexcusable. Promises were made and not kept, infor... Read more

    We are extremely disapointed & saddened that you feel this way. Out of courtesy, we did agree to allow you to come in and set up for your Son's Rehearsal Dinner much earlier than the contracted time. However please note that according to our security cameras, you came even a bit earlier than scheduled. Therefore the set up the Grand Banking Room was not 100% complete upon arrival. Security Cameras will show that that entire venue was set by the agreed upon time, within 15 minutes of your arrival. Having made a last minute exception for you to come in for an early set-up, we did have a prescheduled Tasting in the Cake Room. I tried to reschedule it with the client, but she was an out-of-town bride with several other apointments scheduled around the long scheduled tasting. That tasting was comepleted and the Cake Room Table was set up by Rylan and myself, with your place card chart, per your specifications, several hours before your Event Start Time. I feel that my father and I tried very hard to appease all of your wishes, fears, desires & needs all while trying to stay within your budget. That being said, I deeply apologize that you feel that we were rude or misled you in any way. That was and is certainly never our intention. Moving forward we will take all of your concerns and comments into consideration on how to improve as a growing small business. We wish you the best and hope to one day have the opportunity to change your personal feelings toward us. We love this buisness and are working tirelessly to make everyone happy at every stage of the process. Thrilled that your event was quite lovely, in spite of your anxiety leading up to. I sincerely hope your Son and Daughter-in-Law had a wonderful wedding weekend and that one day we will again see you, your family and guests back at Latrobe's. Milli
