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... read 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

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
