We stayed in New Orleans for just a few days, for me?, that's just torture, with so many restaurants to go, so many dishes to try ! I didn't want to make any mistakes when choosing what to eat.

Great service. Wonderful and unusual cocktails and good selection on the wine and beer list. The food was amazing - though by the gulf of Mexico I ventured to try the waitresses recommendation of beef short ribs - tender, melt in your mouth beef with delicious side dishes and wonderful coffee.

Went there with two couples for dinner. Excellent service, very good and eclectic wine list, but the food was to die for. I had the gnocchi to start and the hangar steak. My wife had the beef cheeks, I also tasted the crab legs appetizer which was perfect. One of my favorite places in NOLA

Went to Jazz Fest this last weekend (April 23-26, 2015) and one of our big plans was Lilette on Magazine. I have to say that we showed up a little early to have a drink next door at Bouligny (which I think may be owned by Lilettes as well, unfortunately). We checked in on the 9:30pm reservation at 9:25pm and... More

Had reservations at Lilette with some friends who had heard about it. Great restaurant. Interesting, eclectic menu and wine list. Not close to the usual New Orleans restaurants, so you will need a cab. But once there, you are in for a treat. Reservations recommended.

A little ride to a nice neighborhood place on Magazine Street but well worth it. In a charming high tin ceiling and columned corner stand alone old buiding. Recommended by a friend originally from the area who visits often. Off the tourist path. Some old French classics like tasty escargot, with excellent sourdough baguette, fresh market veggies and cheeses, and... More

I love eating at Lilette. The food is always creative yet with a Louisiana and Mediterranean type flare. Service is attentive. Location on Magazine Street makes it nice to be out of the downtown craziness.

We were guided to this fabulous small restaurant by the maitresse d' at another French bistro in a busier part of the Garden District - how lucky were we??? It was quite a walk and the district had become distinctly residential when we found the corner-sited establishment, but the added distance was worth it. Staff were welcoming and very knowledgable...

Opened with a very good Manhattan and warm service. After that, it was all down hill. A sweetbreads appetizer was tiny and plain, achieving nothing but breading a few microbits of sweetbread with uninteresting accompaniment. My wife had a raw albacore appetizer, which was pretty much just that, plain raw fish. For her entree she had drum with cous-cous and... More

The menu is very different from the typical New Orleans restaurant and that is a good thing. The staff if very knowledgeable about the menu and how everything is prepared. Service impeccable and the food is perfect. We had 3 different fish dishes and all of them were perfect. My wife had the Black Garlic soap and it tasted a... More
