Not easy to find but do

Dinner at Gautreau's was fantastic. They aren't open on Sundays but made exception for our party of 30 in the city on business. Located in a primarily residential neighbor hood, your cab driver will know exactly where it is. The James Beard Award winning chef had everything perfect. She later came... read more

I was looking forward to experiencing a special and memorable dining experience during my visit to New Orleans. Gautreau's and its executive chef had been featured on Top Chef, among other "foodie" TV shows. The place is hard to find, in a residential area of the Garden District, and there is no outside sign to speak of. The small main... More

After a long weekend of celebrating our 25th anniversary with great food/experiences at Bayona and Commanders Palace, we had AMEX complete the weekend at Gautreau's to celebrate our special occasion. The neighborhood location was very familiar to me since I lived on the street while attending university in my hometown. Starting with the M'D, the welcome was poor. No thanks... More

We went to Gautreau's after a very positive recommendation from a fellow foodie friend. But, we found the food only OK and not worth the price. The items we sampled ranged from scallops & flounder to hearts of palm salad, sweetbreads, & creme brûlée. Everything tasted OK, but nothing special. Note that the portions were small, which was fine with... More

I was so tempted not to write about my visit to Gautreau's, not wanting everyone on the planet to end up there and spoil my dream of having it all to myself. But alas, I am a good hearted person and wish for everyone to share in this amazing little gem. My friend has raved about Gautreau's for years. So... More

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 all fighting over. Service was friendly. All... 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
