Paulette's is well known as one of the very best restaurants in the Memphis, TN area. But, you have to go to the Terrace (4th floor of the Inn). The river views are spectacular, the service is the very best and the food/drinks are great.

We can not speak highly enough about the ambiance and exceptional quality of food at Paulette's. What made everything 100% more enjoyable was our waiter. Darren was one of the best if not THE BEST waiter we have ever had! He was personable, knowledgeable and patient. He did not rush us in any way. He was engaging but certainly not... More

We had a "stay-cation" in downtown Memphis, and ate dinner at Paulette's, over the 4th of July weekend. We were really disappointed in the service at Paulette's. I stressed a food allergy and asked what I could order. I was assured that the entrée I had selected did not contain the allergen (which is a common ingredient). Well, after waiting... More

We ate here two mornings during our stay and both times the food was very good. Nothing too special but well prepared and service was good as well. Relaxing, small place. Request a booth.

We where two couples who started the evening with a nice ARTISANAL CHEESE platter and a bottle of Conundrum White, Proprietary Blend, California 2012. Cousin John had a Salmon Special which was excellent. From the menu Cousin Vicki had the ICEBERG WEDGE SALAD and an exceptionally nice CRABMEAT AND SPINACH CRÊPE.

We had a great time and came here whilst staying at the riverinn. The food was delicious and the service very good. I had the spinach and crab pancakes and my partner had the pork chop. I would definitely recommend although being from Europe perhaps Tugs would have been a better authentic Memphis experience
