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!

Lafayette does not have many choices for nice sit down dinning. A good choice is this restaurant. It is not too big but has a nice interior and is located conveniently on one of the main streets in town. There are white tablecloths as well as an area near bar for more casual seating. We asked for a table near... More

Had brunch for Mother's Day at Jolie's, and we really enjoyed it. The place is beautiful, with George Rodrigue paintings (pre-blue dog) adorning the walls. Service was fantastic! We were brought beignets to nibble on while waiting on our meal. My shrimp and grits were very tasty, but I really loved my Raven burger. Best bread I have had in... More

My buddy told me give this place a try. Best meal in the past year. My wife tells me I am a food snob, if true, this could be my home away from home. I did a little of everything. Glad I came. I am actually doing this review while I eat my desert. Never done that before v

Impeccable service; amazing food; fresh cubed; Cajun/Creole/New Orleans mixture. Right from the farm to the table. Menu appears to focus on what is available locally. We've eaten there a number of times and have ordered different items each time. Haven't found anything that wasn't outstanding. Young chef not afraid to experiment - obviously a great experimenter. Soft, quiet atmosphere. Outside... More

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...
