If you love historical places and want knowledgeable staff to help you arrange your wedding and/or reception, the Latrobe's is the place for you! I gave Latrobe's 4 stars on flexibility, because as a historic place, they have several rules that have to be followed so that the premises will be be pristine for everyone. We purchased the "candle package" which more than made up for the absence of other decorations. The staff at Latrobe's is extremely helpful - we did not hire a wedding planner and did not need one. The buffet-style reception food was excellent - stand-outs were the (al dente) tortellini and the tender cajun fried turkey. Our guests thought I was a rock star!

LaTrobe's is an absolutely stunning venue for a reception. We had a full blown sit down dinner in the main area, and the band and cocktail hour in the carriage house. The food was awesome - I highly recommend the short ribs. The service staff was attentive and timely. The evening could not have gone more smoothly and I could not imagine a more lovely venue. I do agree that responsiveness to questions was a bit slow at times, and also agree that the food tasting meeting left me a tad disappointed. With that said, the event was nothing short of perfect. I would definitely recommend LaTrobes for any event you might be planning.

This venue is absolutely magical - the design is breathtaking and perfect for an intimate New Orleans french quarter wedding. The perfect backdrop for a romantic, sexy, sophisticated night. They work exclusively with Besh Catering so the food was also absolutely amazing. Our guests couldn't stop raving about how delicious the food was and how many options there were to choose from. We are big foodies and so are our friends so that was really important for us when making our venue selection. The service on the night was also stellar - it was very easy for people to order drinks without having to wait, and the servers were going around constantly handing out the passed appetizers. We even had our own bride & groom's attendant who made sure we ate, always had a fresh drink in hand, and checked in to see if there was anything they could do for us all night. The night itself was executed perfectly and we had an absolute blast. It's an expensive venue, but I do believe you get what you pay for. My only constructive criticism would be in the planning process. In today's professional world, it really is expected to have a quick response time to emails. They do mention that they devote their time heavily the week of for each event...meaning if it isnt the week of you're wedding they might not respond to inquiries quickly. It is nice that they give you this heads up, but really it shouldn't take several days/weeks and several follow ups to get answers to a few simple questions. In addition, the people there are very experienced because they host so many events, but I felt that sometimes it came across as being a little too opinionated about how my wedding should be run. I appreciate their input of what has worked well for past events, but the way it was communicated...it came across as your wedding SHOULD be done this way, rather than "you should consider this because"...
Fortunately, I had a wedding planner, so these two things didnt impact my experience too much.

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 perfect. My husband and I even spent the next night after our wedding walking around the french quarter. We stood across the street staring at Latrobe's, overwhelmed with emotions from the night before and even let out a few tears of joy. Latrobe's now has such a special place in our hearts. If you want a fairytale wedding, book Latrobe's!

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.

Latrobe's on Royal 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.

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.

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 and worked within the framework of their experience.
The night of the wedding, Jessie and Ryland felt more like friends and guests than "coordinators," while still kicking butt and doing their jobs to the utmost effect. The entire event ran like clockwork and if there was a problem or issue, we certainly had no idea. We were able to relax and have a crazy good time at our own wedding (how often do people - especially the bride - get to say that?!) knowing that we were in the most capable hands. 
The John Besh food was outstanding and plentiful. Most of our guests were out-of-towners so it was important to us that they had the opportunity to enjoy the particular culinary ouevre which is New Orleans cuisine.  Months later we are still hearing rave reviews of the food. The fried oyster appetizers and the brisket, the bread pudding and the artichoke cheesecakes were all crowd favorites.  We, of course, didn't eat a thing at the wedding (we were too busy dancing up a storm!), but when we arri

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 guests have mentioned (without being asked) how great the food was and how much fun they had. They all said it was the best wedding they had EVER been to! I know the price is a little scary, but that includes catering (incredible food), open bar, furniture, linens, plates, silverware, etc. If you were use all different vendors I doubt you would get such a great deal, plus you don't have to coordinate everything! You can't put a price on the ambiance and location either. There is so much built in decor inside and outside Latrobe's, you don't have to hassle with outside rentals (although I did use Luminous Events for candles). I actually don't think there are any other places in the Quarter that can accommodate larger guest lists (besides hotels). $30k was a min. for March (a desirable time of year) and we reached that with 200 guests plus upgrading the food and bar options. I really can't say enough about this place!
