4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2015 NEW

Rounded down from 4.5 stars. One of the few restaurants we could squeeze into for NYE dinner. Knew that the prix fixe menu was going to cost $100 per person, so was expecting big things, especially given the normal prices on the menu. Overall, we had a great dinner, but not $100 per person great. Perhaps $75 good. Frog leg... More

Magazine Street in New Orleans follows the bend in the Mississippi River from Downtown up through Uptown to Carrollton Avenue and is major artery for small, elegant shops, galleries, and restaurants. Historically important in the life of the city, the street has become a bustling mecca after the ravages of Katrina. A jewel in the dining scene is tiny Lilette... More

We have dined at Lilette a number of times over the years. It has been one of our favorites. Perhaps it was just a bad night, but, the New Years prix fix dinner was both disappointing in taste and preparation as well as price. There was unanimous disappointment among our group of 8. We remain hopeful the staff can return... More

We ate here on NYE. It was packed. The food was delicious, and the service was flawless. The menu was pre-set, and we got a wine pairing. Delicious. I even got an extra half glass of wine, which was a nice perk. The ambiance was just what we were looking for--sophisticated without being pretentious. The only downside is that the... More

We had the $100 a person (alcohol was extra) special New Years Eve and it was excellent. Choose one from set of 2 choices for 4 courses with a lagniappe of a crispy frog leg before the first course, Each course was exquisite: beautiful and tasty. I had tiny but lovely shell fish with a Mignonette sauce on each piece... More

Dined here for lunch during the holidays on a local's recommendation. Just the trip alone along Magazine Street is worth it!! It reminded us of a countryside French bistro. It's a busy place, but the staff was extremely efficient and welcoming. Two of our party dined on the daily special (drum fish) while others had the chicken Marsala and the... More

When it comes to quality and taste, it's impossible to beat this restaurant. CONSISTANTLY good food, nice staff and charming atmosphere. This restaurant is on the top of my list not just in NOLA, but nationwide.

The food here is very good and once at your table, so is the service. I had the escargot as an appetizer and the duck as a main course. Both were very good. Our waitress was attentive but not hovering. The dining environment was small but still allows for easy conversation. The only thing I was disappointed in was the... More

The hanger steak and the Ricotta cheese desert were better than we could have imagined. Definitely one of our favorite restaurants in a great restaurant city.

We made a reservation for 3 people last Saturday night, 8:30, on Open Table. We arrived early, 8:15, were told our table wasn't ready, and that it might be 10-15 minutes. It was a little strange, because there was a couple seated at a table for 4, with open twos. Well we waited and were told another 10-15 minutes, and... More
