Patois means the dialect of the common people of a region. There is nothing common about this Patois. Here they’ve taken some regional favorites from all over, given them a continental refinement and spiced them with a New Orleans edge. The result is delicious. We tried a couple of the house cocktails. Especially good was the Juliet y Romeo. The... More

This hip restaurant (Esquire was doing a photo shoot as we dined) prides itself on locovore offerings, and did not disappoint. The rabbit alone was worth the trip to Nola.

Dinner at Patois is a great experience, from the terrific service to the lovely atmosphere. Yes, the prices are a bit high but in keeping with a place of this quality (I compare Patois to Bayona, another NOLA favorite). My dinner was simply terrific and the overall meal was well worth the money spent. Don't miss this place if you... More

Patios is another one of those New Orleans neighborhood gems, where the food quality is far beyond what you would expect as you walk down the neighborhood street to the front door. The menu is varied and creative without crossing the line into being an overheated mix of ingredients. We shared five appetizers between the two of us, and everything... More

Was in NOLA for French Quarter Festival back in April, and wanted to get this review in before too long! One of the finest meals of my life. Patois was recommended to me by a wine distributor I know here in San Francisco. It was a bit of the beaten path, but it is so worth it. It's in Uptown... More

The food in this place is absolutely amazing. It sits in the middle of a neighborhood and has a great atmosphere. It does not look overly fancy but don't let it full you. Try the pork. I have never tasted anything like it. A must go if New Orleans.

We had a group of four people who were all from out of town, we made our reservation the day before and met there. My friends loved the neighborhood feel and the great atmosphere as you walk in and true to NOLA it was packed on a Thursday night. The cocktails were incredible and I was impressed with the bar...

Make sure to get out of the French Quarter for a couple of meals. For a wonderful neighborhood restaurant with a great mix of people and amazing food, go to Restaurant Patois!

There are too many other fine restaurants in New Orleans, so save your money and try something other than Patois. I gave three stars because the service was good, as far as the food goes two stars would be appropriate. My wife and I dine out in New Orleans every weekend. After reading positive reviews on this place we gave... More

We went to Patois for lunch on a Fri. (They’re open for lunch only on Fri.) We started with sweet potato soup (special of the day) and gumbo. Both were EXCELLENT! Gumbo was probably the best we’ve ever had. We had four appetizers (for two of us—we couldn’t resist. Their appetizers are big). I loved Mississippi Rabbit Bolognese while my... More
