Fantastic meal

Went for dinner with work colleagues. The place looks like someone's house and the dining room felt intimate. Everyone on the table raved about their meal. I had short rib which was amazing. Remember to leave room for a dessert. We shared a selection. The chocolate tart was the one we all were... read more

Attentive wait staff, very pleasant atmosphere, well prepared entree. Loved the bread, foie gras appetizer & chocolate tart. Had the halibut, which was almost perfect. Thought the entree could have used some additional side veggie to add a little zing.

My wife and I were fortunate enough to eat at Gautreau's this past weekend and loved every second of the experience. I can confidently say that this may be the best restaurant in New Orleans. The service is impeccable and the food is something that I am still savoring many days later. I had the duck, cooked medium-rare, and it... More

We cannot say enough about this gem off a restaurant. We loved all of the wait staff. Almost all of us had the crusted halibut. Best I've ever had. Everything else was excellent.

This is a special place with special food and a very talented and engaging chef, Sue Zemanick. One of our favorite places to dine in NOLA and our most recent visit did not disappoint--it was fantastic from beginning to end.

8:30 reservations and were seated at 8:50. It was so loud in there we literally had to yell at each other across the table. The waiter spilled a beer all down my arm (he gave me another of my drinks as an apology I guess). The food was fine. The duck with mushrooms was excellent. The snapper was cooked well.... More

Man are we ever fans of this place! Visiting New Orleans again, we met six other natives who've never been here before. All were just as impressed and pleased as we've been each and every time we come. Service s top notch. Food is top notch. And the wines are eclectic and solid.
