This little gem still shines brightly...

Gautreau's continues to be one of my very favorite restaurants in New Orleans. Tucked behind a lush Uptown garden scene, from the street it blends in without calling attention to itself as a restaurant, per se. There's no signage, and the only giveaway is the valet that stands in attention. But... read more

We had a big enough crowd to get the upstairs private room and felt like we were guests at a fine dinner. The menu made it tough to decide, but I went with the foie gras and duck confit - both were amazing. They arrived plated perfectly - I even took pix. Then, the taste was so good that I... More

Heard of Gautreau's for years, but only recently visited. Reservation was for 8:00pm on a Saturday night. The place was packed when we arrived at 8:00, but we were seated immediately. Service was efficient and unobtrusive throughout our meal. Had cocktails and ordered wine. First wine choice wasn't available, so the waiter suggested another which was excellent and lower priced....

We arrived early enough to get the specials. This was perfect because my dining companion and I found all three off-menu specials so enticing that we both ordered all three without the regret of missing other menu items. The soup was a mushroom crab soup. It was very earthy and delightful without being creamy - this also made it healthy.... More

My wife and I go to New Orleans once or twice a month and always enjoy dining in different places around the city. This past weekend we went to Gautreaus Restaurant and were not disappointed. In fact we both felt that this may be our new favorite restaurant. The service was very relaxed, giving us plenty of time to sit... More

Upscale, outstanding New Orleans restaurant whose classic dish -- don't laugh -- is chicken and mashed potatoes. They prove it does not need to be prosaic, any more than L'Ami Louie does on the Ille St Louis in Paris. Rest of menu is top flight and favors New Orleans gourmet fare.

The food is absolutely delicious! True fine dining at its best. Had the fish with crabmeat and beurre blanc sauce. Outstanding! The duck is wonderful too. Check out the menu on line before you go as it changes seasonally.

Had heard so many great reviews and certainly its a great place. Its reserved staff gives you distance and never intrudes. Although this did result in a incorrect drink order. The feeling is that they want to be responsive and maybe even welcoming but don't want to push into our space or experience. Outstanding appetizers included scallops, foie gras, really... More

Our good friends recommended this restaurant and we went together. Lively atmosphere, but we had no trouble with conversation, and my hearing isn't what it used to be. Might be a problem for very large tables though. Service was superb. I had the sweetbreads appetizer which was very good. My wife had the scallops, which I tasted and they were... More

Our dinner at Gautreau's was amazing! It was my birthday and we had been wanting to go to Gautreau's for some time. We were so glad we did! Our server was exceptional, all of her suggestions were incredible. We will be back very soon.
