Great service, Grits and K-pie!

Walked in on a Monday with no reservation and was seated right away and had a wonderful lunch with superb service. Had the wedge salad and shrimp and grits. Great grits entree. A little too much gravy, but good and a nice portion. Save room K-pie and coffee!!!

As I can see from other reviews I am in the minority when it comes to my opinion of this restaurant. For a supposed up scale establishment, my wife and I had a terrible experience here. The food was mediocre at best and the service was just alright. We ate here on a Saturday night no less. The place was... More

Only complaint is they are ALWAYS crowded and there is a wait line especially if there is a concert or show in town.

Paulette's has a wonderful Monday night special. Every Monday you can get a 3 course meal for $19.95. The chef who prepares the meals does a wonderful job. I would recommend this restaurant for all of your special occasions and for just because moments.I recommend that you join their email list so that you can stay updated on all of... More

I was a frequent diner when Paulette's was in Mid-Town Memphis and it used to be my favorite lunch spot. This location is not as convenient for me now, but on a recent visit I was pleased to find the quality of food had not declined, although the prices were a little higher. Still delicious food, excellent service. The staff... More

Paulette's is one of the top restaurants in Memphis. Service and food are always excellent. The owner, George Falls, is always around making sure everything is up to his high standard. Happy that hey brought several of their famous crepes when they moved from Overton Square a few years ago.

Paulette’s is one of Memphis's long time favorites and does not disappoint. Food, atmosphere and service are excellent. Many nights someone will be playing the piano in the lounge just outside the bar. A visit to the rooftop affords a great view of the river.

This is a great place to dine before a concert, game, etc. We made our first (will not be our last) visit to Paulette's prior to a concert. The server (did not get his name) was very courteous and even asked if we had an event to attend so he could be aware of any time concerns we may have.... More

We visited Paulette's last night and the crowd was out in full force! The wait was pleasant, drinks, piano, and then of course the view of the river. From appetizers to dessert, we loved every minute! Can't wait to eat at Paulette's again!

My wife and I ate dinner at Paulette's before going to the theatre. As long-time Memphis residents, we had frequented Paulette's when it was in another location. It has always been one of our favorites and we were delighted to rediscover it at the new location in the River Inn at Harbortown. Reservations were easily made through open table and... More
