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.

We hit Zagats top 3 in 3 days Gautreau's, Commanders Palace and August. This was our least favorite. The place was super noisy and the service was mediocre at best. Our bus lady was old and reminded me of "Grumpy Cat" if you know that reference. The food was pretty good but I would not crave it or feel the... More

I had read up about this place before visiting Nola and booked well in advance to get a table. The restaurant is in a lovely part of town, well off the tourist rout and decor feels just like a French bistro. But we had been lead to believe, from reviews and the restaurant's own website, that this was a fine... More

I love this place. Great food, great service, and got to meet Sue Zemanick all in one night. One of my go-to places in New Orleans, it did not disappoint this time again!!

A little hard to find but happy we did. They have a few main stays while the rest of the menu changes often. All the food was excellent. Wife had Sweetbreads with a little crab. I had a Pear Salad with mixed greens. Both delicious. We both had fish - Cobia for her and Grouper for me. Very light sauce... More
