We like the effort at Jolie's. The dishes are unique fine dining fare with a local flair. We always leave thinking the food could have have been better; I.e. Something was missing to get it to the next level. But we keep going back, so we are getting some level of satisfaction. George Rodrigue art adorns the walls, so go... More

We popped in for a quick light lunch. Then tossed our ideas about lightness for a tall cone of at least 12 hushpuppies to accompany our gumbo and salad. Then they brought bread, a baguette better than anything I've had in Paris. Tossing all discipline aside, we split a dessert of beniettes, fluffy little pillows of fried deliciousness dusted with...

I want so much to love Jolies Louisiana Bistro. I do love the interior and the way the restaurant is laid out. It is very classic and classy on the inside. I love the white table cloths and the service has always been the best each time I have eaten there. It represents at least on the interior the best... More

We were ecxited about Jolie's menu. It reflected the general impression of the restaurant - elegant. The artwork by a local Lousianna artist throughout the restaurant was a fresh and interesting asset. We were not disappointed. However, the staff was not as experienced as their restaurant's style appared to be. The waiter gave us some "exotic" side menue advice which... More

We have eaten here in the past 2-yrs or so, but remember the food as a little on the bland side. Plus, several dinner items are pork related and we don't eat pork on the streets, and prefer seafood or filet! However, this time we dropped by for drinks, and they have several specialty drinks - invented by the bartender!... More

My husband and I like Jolie's about 3-4 times year for an evening alone or with one other couple. Great cocktails and small plates at the bar and their mixologists are pretty skilled. They're known for their Cioppino, fish/shellfish entree. Crispy Duck also great. Decor and ambience are lovely. We like their "farm to table" approach, choosing local meats/produce over... More

We have been enjoying Jolie's since it opened. Love the farm to table concept. Everyone thinks the food in Lafayette should be spicey, but it is the true flavor and minimal spicing that is important. Love the atmosphere and the bar.

On a family member's recommendation, my husband and I ate lunch here two days in a row. We were in town visiting relatives. The first day we were overwhelmingly pleased: service was excellent, the food was to die for, and the atmosphere is pleasant and love George Rodrigue's paintings. Our meal started with hot sourdough bread from Poupart's Bakery (love... More

An empty parking lot at 11 on a Sunday in Lafayette should have said it all, because it is almost unheard of in this city. Most restaurants that serve brunch don't accept reservations and its not unusual to wait an hour for a table. I would have left, but several people were joining us to celebrate mom's birthday.
