to add to my review in january - we went there again today. there was a bit of a problem with some of the food. i mentioned it to the wait staff, and without asking, we got a steep discount. hats off!

“For a taste of Louisiana, the choice is Ouisi.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

I've always wanted to give this place a test drive, especially since we used to live in the neighbourhood. Shouldn't have waited as long as we did, for it's got game, (in a city where good food is king) and the right amount of spice and atmosphere. Love the décor, food is tremendous;
there's an excellent selection of beverages, alcoholic and non to go with your vittles.
Our brunch was delicious and filled us up for the rest of the day. I would dearly love to have the eggs Florentine again, as I savoured them for the rest of the day! The Bayou Blast omelette was a hit with my dining partner.
Prices are reasonable. We're quite happy to try out Ouisi for supper some time too, particularly if there's jazz thrown in, so expect us back, as y'all do southern food just right, people.

“Second time a home run!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

The last time we dined over a year ago was for brunch, we returned this time for an evening out with drinks. Not busy at all, being a weeknight and even though later it was open mic night. We tried a few appetizers, the seafood chowder with cornbread (OMG - the cornbread was to die for!) The wings which had the meat literally falling off the bone, the Cajun shrimp - it was all so divine. The drink prices here are so reasonable - a nice glass of house red for $6, scotches ranging from $6 to $12 (a few different brands were sampled by recommendation of our server) and one of the best Monte Carlo coffees we have had. The ambiance is great - tealights on tables, interesting art on the walls. This establishment is a wonderful part of Granville and I wish we had a similar restaurant in our city. Definitely will return on our next trip and try for the Sunday Jazz night!

“Great Service Ambiance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2014

We go here for dinner when we are at the Stanley Theater. Love the decor, food and service the murals on the wall add to the feeling of being somewhere warm and filled with music.

“consistent good quality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

we've been going to ouisi bistro for over ten years now. it never disappoints. sometimes the coffee is not great, sometimes the food quality is a tad lower than normal, but overall, this place is totally dependable - a solid place to take someone to for a good dinner. we've been in new orleans and louisiana and the food at ouisi bistro can totally measure up. i really like that lately they've added the option to choose your own side dishes. in the summer you can go to the little patio in the back. you can always find parking, either in the back or close by. service is consistent and often truly excellent.
