This is a first rate restaurant on a residential street with no sign on the outside. The food and service is wonderful. My husband and I both had the same meal. Sweetbreads with crayfish and mustard greens. The best prep of sweetbreads I ever had. Then sautéed redfish impeccably prepared. The dessert was not the greatest, just ok. A chocolate... More

I had been looking forward to our visit here as I had heard so much about the place. My experience was only marred by sudden cramps but nevertheless what i ate was superb. I had the for gras which was served with a divine relish of pickled onion hazelnut granola and pomegranates which was amazing. My husband had the cauliflower... More

If you can get a reservation GO!!! it is amazing food presented beautifully. The host and owner charmed us as we waited a few moments for our table. Not one snobby bone in his body. Our daughter was with us and as a trained chef pronounced it "divine!". My husband and I agreed. Lastly, do yourself a favor and dress... More

We lived in NY for over 40 years and have been to some of the best restaurants. This restaurant is right up there. Gautreau is a special French restaurant in uptown New Orleans. It's located on a quite residential street without even a sign. Our taxi drove around the block twice before I called to ask where it was. The... More

A party of eight men, apparently missing their days in the frat house took over the restaurant. The result was an unpleasant evening for many. This concluded with a heated exchange between the manager and an older couple at one of the affected tables. The manager repeatedly saying he had done what he could. The gentleman pointing out that as... More

By all means, if you are a group of five people and feel like dropping over $500 on some really average food at a really noisy place with REALLY slow service - go here! Where to begin? We arrived at 8:30. We all had cocktails and that was fun. But then it took the waiter until almost 9pm to come... More

Gautreau is a wonderful French restaurant in uptown New Orleans. It's located on a quite residential street, in a very nice neighborhood. You have to be aware of the address or like me, you'll drive past. The atmosphere is very French, the staff very attentive, and the food is sumptuous. We met another couple while in New Orleans, who had... More

A small restaurant located on a secluded residential street Uptown, this is a true gem. Listed in the local NOLA Times newspaper's ten best of New Orleans we found the rating to be well deserved. The food (always the most important) was outstanding Cauliflower soup with crab meat was amazing. All entrees were superb. And don't forget desert--the crème brule... More

This restaurant has no sign, just the numbers on the side of the house. There is no room to wait for your table and if your table is close to the entrance, people are standing near you while you are eating. The scallop appetizer $16.00 for 2 medium scallops was definitely overpriced. The rest of the food, we all had... 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.
