Amazing Food!

I had a superb salad, followed by Trout Meuniere. The salad was fresh greens tossed with a bacon vinigrette with a sunny side up egg on top. We decided to call it "The Breakfast Salad." The trout was very good except that it was a little undercooked in the very center. The green beans with the... read more

Situated a long way from Downtown New Orleans, the restaurant is not suited to those with hearing difficulties as there is no baffle for ambient noise and the background noise from customers was overwhelming. The food was great up to the point of my main course: I chose the fish of the day and, for my palate, is was overwhelmed... More

This a a neighborhood restaurant in a beautifully renovated home. The staff was so helpful and our waitress really knew the menu. The grilled octopus was better than any we had in Greece. The seafood gumbo was some of the best we've ever had in New Orleans. The rue was dark and the seafood was abundant and delicious. They also... More

Been going there for 4 years. Always had a great experience. It's done! Seemed to be very concerned with the use of electricity.. It was very warm n the place. No bleu cheese in the place for martini olives. Lamb rib appetizer was good. Not so for the red fish special...... After returning twice, it was still raw. The final... More

I felt like I was crashing a neighborhood party made up of people who didn't know how to speak in a normal tone of voice. We're not talking about just loud, we're talking about what I imagine a crowd in the Seattle Seahawks stadium sounds like to a visiting quarterback! I have never experienced such indifference to other people from... More

Another excellent restaurant in New Orleans. Patois is on the corner in a neighborhood. When you arrive there(we Ubered there) it looks like a corner tavern, but it ends there. A long bar in the front of the joint, but then you see a row of white table clothed tables in front of them. The food was excellent. The night... More

Came here with friends for a birthday celebration. Was really impressed. Fascinating menu. I had a wonderful rabbit dish. Everything our party had was great. Good cocktails - the best Sazerac I've had here. Great atmosphere and waiting staff did a great job. Liked the neighborhood

We went for brunch today and it was incredible. Our waiter was extremely friendly, the restaurant itself has a very cozy and cute atmosphere, and the food was absolutely delicious. Ordered the pumpkin bisque, beet and goat cheese salad, split the biscuits and pulled pork between two (plenty big!), and the shrimp and grits. I would highly recommend ALL of... More

Dining here was the most disappointing dinner experience I have ever had in a supposedly upscale restaurant. The restaurant was NOISY. Not just a little loud, obnoxiously loud. We said something to the server and he agreed it was noisy, but then proceeded to contribute to the noise along with other staff at the table right behind us. It was... More

We love brunch at Patois. This year we stopped in on our way back to Alabama. The pork tamale was as good if not better as the one we enjoyed last year. I ordered the croque madame and my husband had the fried rabbit biscuit topped with white gravy which was really good. The portions are large, so we were... More

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighborhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
