My wife and I had breakfast and dinner, we were not disappointed, it was very good, service was great, but not cheap...A quiet area away from downtown along the river.

I just love this restaurant. The atmosphere is formal and beautiful. The service is impeccable. And the food makes me come back again and again. A great place for a small business meeting at lunch or a Sunday Brunch. And even better when you are wooing your date. I've been there for all three. Again, it is on the formal... More

They stop serving at 9:00PM on Wednesdays but if we arrived by 8:45 they promised to seat us. Well we were running late and wouldn't make it until 9:05 so we called and they said not to worry. The place is very attractive, divided into relatively small rooms with romantic booths and tables. Upscale but not stuffy. Dinner was great... More

We were delighted to learn that Paulette's, already highly rated, was located in the River Inn where we had reserved an overnight accommodation, so we made a dinner reservation. The food did not disappoint! We both ordered the Ginger-Cilantro Salmon as our entree and Creme Brûlée for dessert. Beautifully decorated. We had cocktails first in the Little Bar and everyone...

Dinner was amazing as usual. This time we had the lamb chops, and they were superb! Paulettes has never failed to please us.

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
