Went to brunch with four friends. We were staying near the French quarter took the streetcar toward the Garden District. When we got off the streetcar we had to walk about a mile but it was totally worth it. Looks like making reservations is important on the weekends. Would love to go back one day. The burger looked amazing and... More

It's probably a good thing I'm not resident of New Orleans. I'd probably be hanging out and eating at the bar at Restaurant Patois nearly every night! As it is, I've dined there at least eight times in the past five years, and I have never been anything less than delighted with the restaurant, the food, and the staff. From... More

Chef Burgau never disappoints. He holds the title King of Louisiana Seafood but his menu goes far beyond that. House made pasta, rabbit, smoked meats and more. Don't miss the desserts either. He takes classics like gumbo and puts his own magic touch that makes it memorable comfort food.

This neighborhood restaurant serves more than mouth satisfying food; there's also ambience and excellent knowledgab;e service. There were 4 dining. The rabbit terrine was nothing short of devine and the butternut squash soup a perfect counterpoint! Lamb short ribs fell off the bone & were "charred" to make you smile. Desserts are not to be missed and did I metion,... More

This was our second time dining at Restaurant Patois. It is a great neighborhood restaurant. The lower room is a bit noisier than the upper room - we've dined in both. Besides great food, what we especially liked is that the wine menu has some lesser known selections. We found a wine from a winery that we visited in France... More

Patois is one of those New Orleans restaurants that is in a neighborhood, in what was once a high ceilinged house, and has a warm and cozy atmosphere as if you are in someone's home. The food is gourmet with such items as sweetbreads, gnocchi, rabbit, excellent trout amandine. Service was friendly, attentive, and altogether a great experience.

Due to our schedule, my husband and I couldn't work a dinner at Patois into our schedule, so we had brunch there this past Sunday instead. I think brunch is the best meal that we have ever had at Patois. The portions were large and the food was delicious. The service was also fantastic. We will have to keep this... More

Beautiful & delicious food in a beautiful old home. My husband claimed his brunch was one of the top meals he had in New Orleans. I would love to eat here again! Make a reservation!

Tried Patois for the first time last weekend. The place is very small and lacks a bit in atmosphere because you feel like you're on top of the person next to you. I started my meal with the pumpkin soup and we shared the charcuterie tray. Both were pretty good. I decided to have the gnocchi appetizer portion for my... More

What happened to Patois? I was my favorite restaurant in New Orleans, but my last meal there was terrible. The menu is the same, but something changed - - the food sucked! They screwed up our reservation (but they did fix that). The waiter did not know the wine list. I'm so disappointed . . . .a once great restaurant... More
