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

I've loved NOLA cuisine since I was a kid traveling through with my family on the way to someplace else and its cuisine continues to evolve and to incorporate new tastes and influences. Our latest discovery is Restaurant Patois, an homage to fresh, locally sourced ingredients with a French twist. Each course was perfect, from the Potato Gnocchi, delicious and... More

It is about 25 minutes outside the CBD area of New Orleans but worth the trip. It is in a neighborhood and fairly small. However, the wine list was excellent (I had a nice bottle of white Bordeaux) and the food is mostly local and organic. The corn chowder was probably the best I have ever had but the star... More

Restaurant Patois on Webster Street is a gem of a restaurant. My wife and I recently dined there and had a fantastic meal. Their wine by the glass selection is top notch. The staff is quick to help in the choice. The soup of the day was a sweet potato and herb - amazing. The lamb neck ravioli was one... More

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
