This uptown New Orleans restaurant is truly hidden from visitors! Located in a quaint neighborhood it does not even have a sign out front and if you are not in the know you will walk right by it thinking it is a residence! However, inside you will find a small but very wonderful dining experience. Fresh veggies and entrees seasonally... More

In a city full of great restaurants, it's easy to forget about this little gem. It's a little of the beaten path on a nondescript street in Uptown. But it's worth beating a path to its door. If you are a tourist, get in a cab and go. It might just be the best meal you've ever eaten.

I have a top ten list for New Orleans. I live here and grew up here. And I am going to go right out and say that the owners of Gautreau's are friends of mine. Not close where I speak every day but pretty good friends. I actually wrote the owner a note about 7 years ago expressing how much... More

The food was delish, and cooked perfectly! Went with two friends while on a girls weekend after hearing a reccommendation from a New Orleans native and LOVE the fact that this restaurant got us outside of the French Quarter and away from Bourbon Street. Service was wonderful the the location/atmosphere is truly great!

This is one of my favorite places to dine in the country and in my neighborhood. Sue does a great job with the menu and is constantly innovating. Patrick runs the front like a seasoned pro. If you want to dine at the best place in New Orleans then this might be it.

First if all you never would know where it was unless someone told you. Tucked away on a residential street uptown, Gautreau's is a small intimate restaurant. Great selection of food, terrific service, and a real local Orleanian feel to it. Friends have been saying for years to go. Finally did and could kick myself for not heeding their alive... More

Great appetizers,mushroom crêpes/crab-watermelon gazpacho.... well crafted cocktails, impeccable service. Chef Sue makes it Michelin star worthy. The Parmesan Halibut is a Masterpiece. save room for desert....any!

Very good meal in a really cool restaurant in a great Garden District neighborhood. The service was excellent, the meal was very good but not great or particularly special. The servings were a little on the skimpy side while the prices were not ( skimpy ). I am glad we went but would probably not return to this restaurant.
