Four of us dined on Mar. 05, 2015. The birthday boy had been there before, and recommended this restaurant. The other 3 were newbies. When walking in, I was impressed. For a strip mall restaurant, the place looked like it should have been a stand-alone building! Beautiful decor, tables were not real close together, and were we greeted by a... More

This is one of my favorite Austin eateries that I have not patronized in awhile plus I have been promising to take Lady Ann to The French Quarter Grille for lunch so today was the day. We started off with the chicken and andouille sausage gumbo which was absolutely deeelicious. My main course was the shrimp and crawfish pasta, in... More

We went to French Quarter for the 1st time because we had a coupon. But the food here is worth paying full price! Since then, we have returned at least once a month to enjoy the gumbo, ettoufee, pecan trout, and my husband's favorite, the fish Ponchitrain -- which has a wonderful sauce of brandy, roué, mushrooms, and crawfish. We... More

I have to say the Gumbo was amazing and it has me wishing I had another bowl today. The Oysters Rockefeller was outstanding with breaded oysters - kind of an unusual twist but delicious. The only thing I would ask is that they offer beignets for dessert. In my opinion that is a staple dessert offering for a cajun restaurant.... More

Shame they closed the RR location, food doesn't appear to be as good and ambiance has gone. Food is ok, prices are reasonable just doesn't hit the spot as before. Not many quality Cajun food places in area so even with the downside it's still worth a visit.

Wow! Had my birthday dinner here while visiting Austin for the Formula 1 race, and wow am I glad I did. Starting with the Fried Green tomatoes with Crab meat Remoulad, Blackened redfish topped with crawfish etouffe, food was fresh, flavorful and authentic. I've spent a lot of time in the Big Easy, and the food here was better than... More

Had dinner with colleagues at this little gem. We did have to wait quite a while (an hour) on a Wednesday evening after being told by our nearby hotel that a reservation would not be needed, so maybe think about calling ahead. The menu is reflective of Louisiana, with lots of seafood, crawfish, crab, and shrimp dishes to choose from.... More

Hidden is a strip mall in the Walmart parking lot across fro the garden center. The food is tremendous. Small and intimate setting, don't let the location fool you. I try to visit it each time I am in Austin, about 4-6 times a year.

It is recommended by by coworker who knew I like French Quarter at New Orlean. The place is not that big so it is somewhat cozy. Since my husband and I are not a drinker so there is not much to say about the drink menu but the appetizers and entree menu are good. Crawfish etouffee is so delicious that... More
