I got a really good vibe from Patois as we sat down, easy main dining area with a nice bar and big windows. You almost feel like you could be in a small-town restaurant in the French countryside in the most positive way. But the service was a bit stilted and the staff changed hands mid-meal. Started with gumbo which... More

Honestly, it seemed we were ignored, or the wait & kitchen staff were on something. We waited so long for our food, I asked for half of it to be boxed, then after getting home, found all the food hadn't been put in the box. We will never go back. Too bad, the place has potential, although we didn't see... More

have been here for brunch on a number of occasions, and the problem is always choosing. Too many attractive choices.. It is located in a cheery converted house near Audubon Par,, with friendly service and a nice selection of wines by the glass. Would characterize food as new American, with a New Orleans/local ingredients focus. we are in New Orleans... More

Always adventurous, understated - yet consistently over delivers. From the cocktail menu to the appetizers, wine list, entrées to dessert - all good!!!!

Terrific spot in the Garden District for a delicious dinner. Dishes draw on local ingredients. Red snapper special was incredibly fresh and so tasty.

My wife and I recently had an outstanding Sunday brunch there. The service was excellent and the waiter was very knowledgeable. Definitely worth repeating.

Since day 1 we have been continually impressed by the creative and wonderful menu, the quality of the ingredients and food, the terrifically lively bar, and the friendliness and hospitality of the owners and servers. Love it all Patois is all that a neighborhood restaurant should be and more-so. Reservations are... More

Patois is an excellent restaurant. This small and intimate restaurant was staffed by personable and responsive individuals. We really enjoyed the heirloom tomato salad-which we shared, the dirty pasta and the seared scallops. All items were very flavorful and perfectly prepared. Nice wine list. And, the meal was reasonably priced. We will definitely return !

We happened to be here on a Friday night when there was a 5 K race, it must have ended here. They said they had hosted beer after the race for 40 years. No problem, very good food, great server (Kaitlyn), nice place for an evening of fine dining. The lamb ribs appetizer impressed us, the rabbit was seasoned just... More

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighborhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
