lovely neighborhood place

Terrific and justifiably popular uptown restaurant on Webster Street. An excellent, limited menu featuring modern takes on numerous traditional regional dishes. Attentive service and informed service, mainly local clientele, interesting wine list. Set in an old corner store front, the place can... read more

This was my second visit to Patois, although the first visit was more than a year ago. The atmosphere is intimate and the service friendly, but I was disappointed in the quality of the food, given the prices. Each spoonful of my gumbo revealed a separation of the grease from the rest of the roux and it was a bit... More

Great place for brunch. I would highly recommend getting the breakfast burrito and a mimosa. The staff were very friendly. I would also make a reservation since it can get really busy on Sundays around brunch time.

We had heard this was an exceptional dining experience so we made a big effort to make sure while in New Orleans we dined here. We had the lamb ribs, the octopus, and the fried shrimp appetizers to start. The lamb ribs were very fatty and the shrimp were mostly batter and heads. The octopus was overcooked. We decided to...

This is by far one of the best restaurants I've been to, and I've traveled quite extensively. The atmosphere is superb, and the food is out of this world. I had the shrimp and grits, but also sampled the lamb ribs, heirloom salad, and one other dish of which I can't remember the name. Every single dish was amazing and... More

We had an excellent experience at Patois. I'm a foodie and I've been a lot of places in the city and many other places, and the experience was great from beginning to end. They were accommodating and friendly getting us to a table, in a quaint neighborhood restaurant setting. The brunch menu was innovative but not overly engineered - simple... More

This restaurant excellent. We went their for lunch and the menu had something for everyone and everyone in our party of 6 thoroughly enjoyed their meal. The burgers were great, the specials were special. Everything was freshly prepared and the service and staff were also a pleasure to deal with. If I ever go back to NO, this restaurant will... More

Small neighborhood place in the Garden District. Been there three times, never disappointed. My only negative experience was the noise level. For an intimate venue, this place creates a large volume of noise. Wait staff extremely friendly and efficient. Menu is very creative, using the freshest ingredients available at the moment. Bar drinks are masterful and generous. Moderately expensive but... More

We came here for Sunday brunch over Memorial Day weekend and really enjoyed ourselves. I had the shrimp and grits which was excellent and my husband had the croque madam. The food was great and started off with homemade muffins and banana bread - YUM! Our service was excellent and the restaurant is very cute inside. Looks like an old... More
