One of the best restaurants in New Orleans. Excellent, creative food, interesting wines (orange Georgian wine even), delightful, homey atmosphere. Great fries, wagyu steak, and a chocolate terrine worthy of Paris. We have brought friends from out of town here and they always rave about...it. Worth a trip uptown, it's near a streetcar stop.More

We had an amazing 4 course meal. We picked the set menu and it did not disappoint. The beef was probably the best beef I have ever had. But the star of the show was the Krispy Kreme pudding .. my god it was good....Hats off the the chef you have made a master piece!! I also have to mention how amazing the staff were. Such lovely people who made our evening perfect.More

We had 4 people for dinner. Everything we had was very good. Boudin balls appetizer was light and tasty. Steamed mussels were tender. The dinners; the applewood smoked scallops with lacinato kale, potato croquettes & smoked mushrooms was perfectly executed by the chef all the...ingredients made for a savory meal. I had a duck breast with spinach. The duck was juicy and tender. I would recommend dining at Boucherie.More

During our three-day stay in New Orleans, this restaurant was the worst one we went to! This is an overrated restaurant! We wanted to give it a try for its reputation only to find it unworthy and overpriced! First, we had to wait for at...least 20 minutes to be seated and another 40 minutes for the meal to come. All of our portions were very small for their prices over $30! I ordered pan seared halibut but instead I got swordfish with two TOTALLY undercooked cauliflower! My son got a very small portion of charred BBQ ribs! We were still hungry after this and we had to go for snack later. We'll not come back to this restaurant!More

We wanted to try Boucherie after reading great reviews. They also have a Happy Hour and outdoor dining space. We were "greeted" by the hostess telling us they might not have room for us at Happy Hour since we didn't have reservations. We were the...only people in the restaurant or on the patio. She finally sat us after much fiddling with the iPad. Then, our waiter was clearly annoyed to be serving us. We did get our drinks and then we sat and waited and waited... A second couple came and sat on the patio, also for Happy Hour. A musician came to set up for live music, the other couple left and we had a private concert for over an hour. Still waiting for that huge crowd the hostess was so concerned with. We ordered from the regular menu as well as the Happy Hour menu. The house red wine was awesome. We thoroughly enjoyed it. I ordered the French onion soup with sweet potatoes and fried oysters off the regular menu. It does not resemble French onion soup. It is thick with an odd texture and no cheese that you notice. The oysters were very small but tender and perfectly fried. My husband ordered the mussels off of the Happy Hour menu. He couldn't eat four of the mussels as they were bad (wouldn't open). Why would a chef serve bad mussels? We also had the blackened shrimp and grits cake, which was delicious. Their boudin balls were yummy and the french fries were average. We finished with their Krispy Kreme bread pudding, which had a delicious flavor where it wasn't overcooked. It definitely could have used more sauce. Three couples had arrived by the time we left, certainly not a crowd that would have prevented us from having a seat on the patio. There is a level of expectation for service in NOLA that is certainly lacking at Boucherie and that needs to be corrected. There was no effort to make us feel welcome or valued and no care with the timing of our orders. The food was so hit and miss that it is hard to recommend it. But, the patio was lovely, we enjoyed the private concert and wine, and some of the small plates were very good.More

I chose Boucherie for a date night with my wife as we found ourselves in NOLA one night beyond our original plans. Most of our favorites had no reservations available on one day's notice for Friday evening. The reviews were all good and the menu...looked interesting, so I thought I'd take a chance. So glad I did. I DO love restaurants in old houses; I don't need glamour. It's a very charming, welcoming place. Our server was perfect: always there at the right time and not hovering. The pacing of the meal was relaxed, as was the overall atmosphere; energetic but not loud. We both ordered the prix fixe five-course dinner as well as the wine pairings and were overjoyed that we did. The Boudin Balls were uniquely different from the ordinary and very tasty. The local green salad was a standout, an example of something simple done perfectly. The watermelon gazpacho (with big shrimp!) was inventive and delicious. My wife had the hangar steak and it was perfectly done medium-rare and seasoned to perfection. The same was true with my choice of pan seared fish, crisp outside and flaky/tender inside with a great cauliflower side. We're not dessert people, but we liked the bread pudding just fine. Portions for each course were not skimpy and that goes for the wine service as well. Each course was paired with a generous pour of a perfect accompanying wine. Every choice was excellent and interesting. Boucherie is our new favorite. Not only will we back; we'll be telling our friends about it too.More

This is place is a favorite of ours, with superb, creative dishes and now a prix fixe dinner menu which is a great deal. Every course will be wonderful. You can't go wrong with the fries, seafood, bulgolki bowl or pulled pork. Krispy Kreme bread...pudding and chocolate chess pie are renowned, and the chocolate terrine is outstanding. We took friends from NYC who eat out a lot, and they raved all night. If you're visiting, take a cab or streetcar uptown to Boucherie!More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend and I have now been back 4 times in 6 weeks. They serve some of the best meat based meals anywhere. I have tried several different things, but hard as I may try, I cannot get past the..."Roasted Caesar Salad", this is the best thing that has happened to a Caesar salad since it was invented! Other than that salad, everything I or my guests have had has been excellent. One of my guests has an allergy to celery. The chef serves an amuse bouche, the server was not sure if it contained celery and asked the chef. The chef sent out a special one just for my guest to accommodate the issue. Great service, good wine and drink choices. Can't wait to go back! Reservations are almost a must as it is a small place in an old house.More

Near the west terminus of the St. Charles streetcar line, this hidden gem hides with culinary temptations, a friendly and attentive staff and energized atmosphere. Multiple large appetizers, all very diverse, were followed by equally large, well-conceived and well-prepared entrees. And, then our group of...15 had to contend with finding room to consume one of the desserts! Throughout our waitress affably accommodated us with drinks, answers to menu questions and refills. We would return willingly the next time New Orleans is part of our agenda!More

Had a delicious dinner and fabulous dessert while meeting my 2nd cousin for the very first time! Well curated drink selection, too, I had a perfect hard cider (not too sweet, not too dry), my cousin chose a sazerac and my husband had a local...beer. The husband and I both chose the pulled pork cake (crispy outside, tender inside) and cousin had scallops, we were all very happy. Finished with a spicy chocolate chess pie, served warm, that was out of this world. The ambiance is warm, service was super friendly, but the place is quite small. We had a reservation for 3, set up at a table for 3 jammed into a tight spot between another table and the host’s stand. Husband is 6’5” and burly, I’m not at all small, I asked if we could have a different 3-top (gestured towards one open) was told no, and so the host and waitstaff spent the rest of the night trying to get by and bumping the host table. Took off a point for that.More

In a quaint very pretty lavender highlighted converted house just 1/2 block off St. Charles Ave Trolley stop. It was a highlight of our visit to the city. The food was very good, very attractive presentation.The cocktail I ordered was great as were the wines....My ribs and crusted corn was excellent, the corn preparation was unique and delicious.My wife loved the duck entree. Desserts were also very fine. Could not have been more pleased. The staff made the experience exceptional. Drew, our server was charming, we had a wonderful conversation aside from the food.Found out we both lived in Berkley CA at the same time. My wife uses a wheelchair so I was concerned about stairs and restrooms. Making my reservation I told them about the wheelchair and was assured we could manage.There are a few stairs into the restaurant but she managed, restrooms are on the main level. A short time after they called our hotel to confirm our reservation Kat called from Boucherie to let us know they could help with our mobility problem, and volunteered that strong staff members could carry the chair up the stairs if needed.Kat said her mother uses a chair and always calls such customers to make sure they will be comfortable. It was a wonderful consideration. At the end Kat, Drew and the very large bartender made it easy for my wife to get to the street.They called a taxi for us and Kat and Drew stayed with us for sometime outside the restaurant and helped us into the taxi. It was a memorable and excellent experience. Don't miss Boucherie during your visit.More
