We have had the good fortune to dine at Gautreau's for more years than I know. Each and every time the food and the service have been top-notch. 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.

Gautreau's is nestled in the Garden District and is a must dine at when in New Orleans. Service is fantastic, food phenomenal and the spirits are also perfect. Do not miss the FOIE GRAS AU TORCHON, it is made in house and even if you say you don't like Fois Gras you have never had it better than Gautreau's.

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

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.
