My boyfriend and I went to Jolie's to try the typical food from Louisiana for the first time. Seriously, this was, for both of us, one of the best meals we've ever had. I had the Zapp's Crawtator Crusted Drum and he had the Grit and Grillades. Our waitress Nancy was awesome, at the end she even gave us a... More

I had two friends come visit for the weekend. I had heard the Bloody Mary's were FAB at Jolie's. We loved our meal! Everyone was happy! Our waiter was so friendly and well informed. The paintings are so beautiful! All in all, a wonderful place to relax, dine, and the Bloody Marys were excellent!

Stooped here on way west. the prices are those of a first class establishment. The product is worth much less. We were there for brunch on a Sunday and it seemed like many there were locals and having a great time. However, there was too much salt in most of the food and it did not reflect the promise of...

Three winning concepts for a great restaurant. Linen table cloths and wait staff dressed appropriately and behaving respectfully is always a big plus for me. Freshly cooked, well prepared food is what I am looking for and what Jolie's delivered. Now creativity is an extra added bonus. A chicken wrap with some jalapenos and some sweet mayo balanced correctly is... More

Have eaten at many restaurants in Lafayette Louisiana. I would rate this restaurant number 1. The service and food is absolutely superb. It's sister restaurant, The Blue Dog cafe, is equally outstanding but Jolene's has the edge in terms of quality of food and service. Cajun and Creole foods are outstanding. Our waitress, Nancy, is one of the best in... More

Everything fine: service, ambiance, cocktails, food. Nothing stood out as more than fine. Fine isn't bad, but it's still only fine, and you'd expect more from this place. Our server was so busy it made us stressed. Food was good and the menu was intriguing, but in a great food town like Lafayette, nothing we ordered was good enough to... More

Traveling through, took a $10.00 cab ride from hotel to experience this place. The good: wine pours were generous. Food just OK. Husband had the Cioppino Stew (just OK) and Bleu salad( very good). I had the Louis Salad, which was dreadful for $18.00. Salad was good but about $3.99 worth max) and included sides of fried eggplant and polenta... More

I enjoy fresh fish and this did not disappoint. I had the Louisiana drum coated with crushed Zapp's Crawtator potato chips, fried, and then topped with crawfish etouffe. It was served with a tasty side of corn grits. I love eating regional dishes to really enjoy the flavor of the area. This was good, but the husband had the crawfish... More

If you're in Lafayette LA you need to eat here. The food was fantastic! This restaurant is in what looks like an old mansion. The bar is a focal point on the first floor and has a very nice selection. Wine list is also very good and the artwork is great.

Relaxed, upscale atmosphere. Yummy crab cakes (really quite outstanding, actually)! Great bar tender sipping up sophisticated concoctions. Eat here in Lafayette to experience some traditional New Orleans flavors and charm!
