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.

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
