With a small group of Foodies, we went with great anticipation to Gautreau's Restaurant, located in the Garden District. The décor was inviting and had incredible wallpaper that looked like hanging drapes, folds and all. I had to go up to it and look sideways to see that the wall was flat. A winner of a James Beard award, we... More

This is the first review I have ever written a review on tripadvisor, but felt compelled because I have never had such mediocre food and bad service at a restaurant purporting to be a fantastic dining experience. First I had the Seared Sea Scallops, cauliflower polonaise and truffle vinaigrette 16.00. The scallops were okay, the cauliflower was fresh, but was... More

Located in a residential neighborhood, Gautreau's doesn't even have a sign! Just the number 1728 to let you know you have arrived. It's a terrific new restaurant with the feel of old New Orleans a la Galatoire's--bentwood chairs, white table clothes, but a lot less pretentious and quiet, and with thoroughly up-to-date food. Service was great. Noise level was low.... More

Its not in the french quarter, but a welcome detour to this quaint neighborhood. Everything we tried was outstanding. And the wall treatments are fabulous.

Nice neighborhood restaurant, cab ride for those staying in French Quarter, but may be worth it for the great food in a small and classic restaurant. Soup of the day was awesome, bisque with crabmeat, duck confit was nicely prepared, Grouper with bok choy was nice; however, as most Asian dishes at restaurants it was a bit heavy on sodium,... More

Small party and most ordered the Grouper. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Service was great but almost too efficient. We had an excellent meal but took only about 1 hour to eat. Much too fast when you consider the price. Nice atmosphere.

One of the Best meals I've had anywhere! Nestled in the uptown area of New Orleans, you could easily miss it - no name out front, but you step into classic elegance from the greeting at the door, the warm service and the magnificent food. Our waiter Chris even made us a cocktail to suit our milder alcohol tastes.You can't... More

After a fairly lengthy period during which we had not been to Gautreau"s we went about a week ago and were tremendously surprised. We had overlooked a true gem that was even close to where we live. Dinner was outstanding---both appetizers and entrees. Service was both attentive and reliable. All in all, Gautreau's tuened out to be a place that... More

I treated a group 10 people including myself in this restaurant last Wednesday. Everyone was pleasantly surprised how delicious are the dishes. We had the pork cheek, duck confit and foie gras for appetizers and we devoured it. We ordered various entrees and all plates were cleaned in the end. I had the halibut and it was delicious.
