I dined at the French Quarter Grille in early June, while visiting Austin for the first time. The eatery was highly recommended by a member of our hotel staff. I was not sure what to expect of a French eatery in the middle of Austin, Texas, but I have to tell you we were blown away!!! We were... read more

This is a great restaurant in north Austin where you can eat authentic New Orleans style food. The gumbos and étouffée are delicious as are the blackened fish, chicken and shrimp dishes. We love the key lime pie for dessert. The bread pudding is also a favorite. Love this place!

We found the French Quarter Grille via google (not Yelp) and I'm so glad I gave google a shot at the search because the cajun food in this restaurant was the best I have ever had outside of New Orleans. All any of the three of us could say was "WOW". I had the blackened catfish gumbo with crawfish and... More

I'm sorry, but this was the worst food I have eaten since I came to the States two weeks ago, My husbands steak was burnt, and I and my 2 teengage children had chicken. It was awful - tasted rubbery, and our pasta was swimming in butter. Very unpleasant meal, the only good point - the water sever was very... More

We had a large group of executives in town from New England and have just about burned them out on Texas BBQ. They always love where we take them, but always want to go to a different restaurant each time they are here ... our executive admin suggested Cajun and has been to the French Quarter Grille a number of...

In town for work, and was looking for something close but not a chain. I was pleased to hear they would accept phone orders. When I got to the restaurant, I was disappointed that I chose carry-out! Darling location, very charming. I had ordered the blackened chicken pesto, and it was divine! The special of the day (viewable when you... More

My husband and I randomly found this place and I'm glad we stopped in. Nestled between Walmart and Golden Corral is this chef owned gem. We had chicken and andouille sausage gumbo with a fantastic roux. My husband had tilapia almandine and I had the shrimp creole, both very good. The the best part of the meal was the orange... More
