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

I booked reservations at this restaurant based solely on the reviews on TripAdvisor. My husband and I were bringing his Mom to New Orleans for a visit, and all of my siblings and spouses were joining us for Sunday brunch. Based on the reviews alone, I booked reservations for 13 people on Sunday, March 1, 2015. What a delightful experience!... More

This is the forth time I have eaten there. The quality is so high, the service attentive, and the ambience is wonderful. They also have the best sazerac cocktail in the city

Beautiful little restaurant. Logistically a little out of the way, but worth it. The space is nice and wait staff attentive and helpful with out being overt. The food is a brilliant mix of classic and surprising. Everything was flavor full and refined Loved the Mississippi Rabbit Excellent wine and cocktail choices

I had to think for a couple days to decide if I was even going to write this review. This was the dining experience from hell, but in full disclosure it was in some major ways "our fault". I'll start at the beginning. We had a reservation for 6 to celebrate two birthdays in the group. Some of us had... More

Went to brunch with four friends. We were staying near the French quarter took the streetcar toward the Garden District. When we got off the streetcar we had to walk about a mile but it was totally worth it. Looks like making reservations is important on the weekends. Would love to go back one day. The burger looked amazing and... More

It's probably a good thing I'm not resident of New Orleans. I'd probably be hanging out and eating at the bar at Restaurant Patois nearly every night! As it is, I've dined there at least eight times in the past five years, and I have never been anything less than delighted with the restaurant, the food, and the staff. From... More

Chef Burgau never disappoints. He holds the title King of Louisiana Seafood but his menu goes far beyond that. House made pasta, rabbit, smoked meats and more. Don't miss the desserts either. He takes classics like gumbo and puts his own magic touch that makes it memorable comfort food.
