We dined with another couple after Jazz Fest around 8:30. Even though we had reservations, we had to wait about 20 minutes until "our table" was ready. Ryan, our server, was very pleasant and attentive. Our Oyster Salad and Frog Legs appetizers were a good size and were really very tasty. We thoroughly enjoyed the entrees,an Almond Crusted Gulf Fish... More

Our motley weekend gang of a dozen enthusiastic eaters, culled from home ports as far away as Pasadena and Manhattan, wound up eating Friday lunch at Patois after our plans to have lunch at Galatoire’s fell apart, as a result of Nola’s we-need-two-hours’-notice taxi system. Perhaps fate led us to Patois; after all, its proprietor’s grandfather founded Galatoire’s. Regardless, that... More

An excellent take on regional food. Great service. Its Uptown so if youre w/out a car its a $20 cab ride each way from FQ ... you could cut that cost in half by taking the No. 11 bus out Magazine Street to Webster and then its a short walk ... cab it back. If youre up for a much... More

It has been, a long time since I had a meal like that. Service was amazing. Joey knew every detail about every plate. And was delivered as described. Fish so fresh. Meats cured to perfection. With service out of this world. Can't wait to get back. This was my experience in this restaurant. Awesome..

Tried this for the first time on a recent visit at the recommendation of a friend, and was not disappointed. The sizzling octopus with chilies and cherry tomatoes was so tender, you could cut it through it with a spoon, but my favorite app was the crab gnocchi with wild mushrooms. Order two of those if you go. The lamb... More

Restaurant Patois opened, IIRC, in 2006, and if I'm not mistaken, my wife and I have eaten here at least 14 or 15 times in that time -- not bad for people who live in California! Now, in the interest of full disclosure, we have become "friends" over the years with both Executive Chef and Proprietor Aaron Burgau and co-owner,... More

We were in town for four days and Patois was recommended by someone that lives near the restaurant. I tis a bit of a ride from the quarter where we stayed and getting a cab back was a struggle.. The food is the best thing about the place. Owner chef and it was above average. Trout almandine was a bit... More

Super friendly place. Need a reservation. Be patient, the place is usually pack and food made with great care. Knowledgeable waitstaff - ask for Cynthia. Try the lamb ribs, my son loved them. I had the short ribs main course - also delicious. Excellent wine list. A real local favorite in the garden district. Don't miss it!

My adult son and I were looking for a nice restaurant with good reviews and found Restaurant Patois. The restaurant is in a quiet neighborhood about 20-30 minutes from the French Quarter. The drive out was well worth it. I had intended to get fish, but went instead for a cup of sausage gumbo followed by the braised short rib.... More
