I haven't eaten here for 9 months and our meal was really sub-par. It lacked any interest and just wasn't very testy. I am not going back soon if I am paying!

We made an early dinner reservation to be sure to snag a table. Wise choice; the place was jammed by 7:30pm, and rightly so. My wife and I like to surf the menu the first time we visit a restaurant. We each had a bowl of the house gumbo (small but loaded with fresh oysters and crisp okra in a... More

Patois is a wonderful little find on a quiet stretch in Uptown. My son had been here before with friends and wanted to return with us as we were in town for his birthday. We couldn't have been more delighted with his selection! The service was excellent, the decor was light and airy, and everyone enjoyed their entrees, whether it... More

We've been twice now. Great both times. The grilled octopus starter is outstanding. The gulf fish almondine with green beans was simple, fresh and delicious. Oh, and the cocktails are nice too.

Wonderful little uptown neighborhood restaurant. This the second time we've eaten there and would go back again. The mussels with fries were especially good as was the boudin stuffed rabbit. Wait staff was friendly and professional

While eating at this place tucked away from the tourists in a lovely neighborhood in Uptown, one can imagine being a lucky New Orleans native who gets to go to small, relaxed restaurants with superb food. Everything is done right at this place. The staff is cordial and professional - the decor is tasteful (I love the picture windows looking... More

For food alone, would have given four stars. However, the service was awful. Waiter forgot second course completely, so served with the entree. Forgot to call us a cab. Nice evening damaged by bad service. Add $40.00 for a taxi if coming from downtown.

I like to keep my reviews short and simple so here goes. We were running late to our reservation and when I called they were more than delightful in accommodating our short delay. With that said we were treated to a wonderful meal. I started with the rabbit gumbo (*****) and had the flounder for my entre (also wonderful. My... More

Parking is catch as catch can on side streets. Had a reservation, ordered Bloody Mary, which was very hot! Had the almond crusted flounder over asparagus with sliced potatoes. Would have been better with more sauce as the fish was dry. Got the sweet potato dessert and was doe in 3 bites! Extremely over priced. Cost was $335 for six... More
