The food here was great. Loved the squash and the steak. Our server was one of the worst we have ever had. Ever. Anywhere.

One of the best meals ever in New Orleans. This is my second visit to this jewel, and it is worth every penny! Everything is ala carte, with appetizers and salads from $10-12, and entrees from $26-50. Crème Brulee was smooth, vanilla deliciousness in the center and topped by a very respectable crispy, burnt sugar coating. You know how sometimes... More

We had a table for 6 at this fine restaurant and they did not disappoint. The service was excellent. The food was amazing! Definitely the finest meal we had all week. This restaurant is located in the garden district. Don't be fooled by the homey appearance of the exterior. This place is far from ordinary. You won't be disappointed.

After arriving in an Uber and making sure that we weren't just at someone's home (it's difficult to tell you are at a restaurant), we entered to a lovely venue. As there was a charge for sharing (the first we encountered in New Orleans), I had an appetizer and my daughter had a salad which we shared on our own.... More

I went here with my 10 year old. They were very understanding of us being in town for a soccer game..and us not having slacks for him...they allowed him in dress shorts. The service was awesome. The food was fantastic. We would definitely do it again.

Gautreau's is beautifully set on a charming block that adds to this wonderful experience. The service is impeccable and the food is absolutely delicious. We had the foie gras and the duck confit appetizers and everybody and our table raved about the richness and deliciousness of every bite. This restaurant is truly a dining experience that you will enjoy or... More

The entire experience was amazing. The service was wonderful and more than expected. The meal was one of the best meals we've had--amazing specials. Enjoyed the soft-shelled crab and bacon wrapped pork. The soup and salad specials were spot on. Thanks!

It is a jewel box of a restaurant, perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, or any evening when you are wanting a special meal. Reservations essential!!! If you want a superlative meal where locals...

The service is spectacular. Gautreau's offers a creative selection of appetizers, salads, soups, entrées, and desserts. The duck confit appetizer was cooked to perfection and offered a fine balance to the pepper jelly and greens. The snapper entree had the right touch of seasoning that allowed the quality of the fish shine. All entrées served were quality with an eye... More

This is a hidden uptown restaurant that my wife and I tried twice while we were in New Orleans this month. Once with family, once with high school friends. Both times service was good, the food was delicious, ambience was nice, price was right; in other words we had a great time each meal. Worth the visit.

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.
