great uptown restaurant

It's definitely off the beaten tourist path, but we had to try it. Glad we went there! I had a blackened filet & my husband had Cobia. Both were amazing. My husband still talks about my filet, since I only let him have one bite. We had a lemongrass dessert that was also delicious. This is a... read more

We were lucky enough to secure a reservation on a Friday evening and we had a fantastic dinner. The surprise dish was the hearts of palm salad. It almost stole the show from the flounder and red fish. I often enjoy ordering and making my own scallops at home and Chef Susan's were some of the best I have ever... More

Go here every time I'm in New Orleans and have never, ever been disappointed. Love that it's hidden away, out of the tourist areas and seems to be filled with locals-a good sign in my book. It's a warm, handsome space. Smart waiters, very helpful and unfailingly kind to my children. The food is terrific. The chef is clever without... More

A well balanced Manhattan and a solid Sidecar opened the evening. The soup du jour was a delicious mushroom cream soup, the sweetbreads with lump crab was fabulous. The Black Angus Filet was perfect, and generous, and the sauted grouper with olive tapenade was outstanding. Excellent wine offering framed the meal. On the expensive side to be sure, but Gautreau's... More

With so many good choices in NOLA it's hard to go wrong but I like asking local advice on those less publicized choices. Garden District is easy to navigate and even though there is no sign, it was easy to find. Food and service met all expectations. Serving sizes were appropriate and nicely presented without being over the top. Fairly... More

The food and the ambiance were exactly what we were looking for. I booked a reservation at Gautreau's to celebrate my birthday and my expectations were pretty high. I was hesitant because of some of the luke-warm reviews I had read on TA and, frankly, booked here because Commander's Palace was full. Having now tried both (you can read my... More

Had an absolutely outstanding experience at Gautreau's during my first visit to New Orleans! As a Top Chef fan, I have been wanting to come here for a while :-)! The restaurant is located on a quiet street within the Garden District and does not have a sign outside. However, it is very easy to get to via the St.... More

On the advice of a local we went here recently. It is an upscale local's place. It is in the uptown section of town. It is in a residential area and there is no sign. The food was very good as was the service, but not up to the level of Commander's, Restaurant August or Bayona though. The biggest downside... More

A hard-to-find gem way down in the Garden District, recommended to us by other restauranteurs – and I can see why. The only thing more notable than the food was the service: always timely, attentive, and “right there” without being either obsequious or hovering – the best example I’ve seen in the US. The care and timing definitely makes this... More

Low key slightly formal neighborhoody perfection. Out of the way, understated, but sensational food, service, decor, vibe. Top 10 in NOLA without a doubt. Don't miss this.
