Great little restaurant within walking distance of any hotel in the French Quarter. The Duck Confit was the best I've had.

The food was fantastic, the atmosphere cool and inviting, the staff excellent (loved our waitress, Jacki) - in a town known for its food this place stood out! My favorite thing was their Sweetbreads in Homemade Buffalo Sauce (!!) - simply amazing! Drinks were great too. Go!

My husband and I had a spectacular dinner at Sylvain's last night. Really one of the best meals I've had in recent memory. We started with the crostini - perfect with a cocktail. I had the Pan-fried Pork Shoulder for my entree and he had the duck confit with sausage and white beans (sort of a deconstructed cassoulet.) Both were... More

Food was incredible, the atmosphere was very romantic. Their outside patio was really magical, very European feeling. We showed up very early for our reservation and they seated us in a few minutes.

Great food, drinks and atmosphere! 30 something's diner party of 8 - outside in the courtyard. Stayed for about 3 hours! I would describe food as modern classic. Everything ordered was tasty. I had the beef cheeks with mashed potatos and fried eggplant. Menu includes craft cocktails. Perfect for small groups & couples. I would suggest reservations in advance.

We had a reservation here for our first night in New Orleans. The food was so good that we came back the next day for Sunday Brunch! Everything was delicious and our servers were so helpful and very friendly. Do not miss the pork shoulder dish...unbelievable. It took a little while to get our food, but it was a very... More

We booked this restaurant for a birthday celebration for two, and requested a nice table - they seated us in the lovely small courtyard, which just had one other couple. Then they happily moved us as requested when a large party arrived about 20 minutes later! The food was really good, we wanted a bit of everything. After finally deciding... More

We happened to stop by here while on our way to another restaurant. It's a very quaint and lovable place. We sat at a table in the courtyard and our waitress and bartender couldn't have been more delightful. Beautiful place, great cocktails and lovely service! Thank you!

The food and service were excellent. A table for 8, no complaints about anything. I found the "Moscow mule" a little limp. Maybe that's the way they all taste, it was my first one. Everything else was delicious. It is noisy in the small dining room, as it shares a small space with a lively bar. The courtyard would be... More
