Always a good sign when there is a line of people waiting for opening. The restaraunt has an upstairs & Downstairs, each equally decorated as to what I expected a French Quarter restaurant to look like. We started our food experience with a traditional gumbo. What looks like a small portion is actually a dense food full of rice and meat. The taste is quite different from what I expected, and it was fantastic. Also they had wide a varied freshly baked breads which was a pleasant surprise to the typical white bread served. We tried a few varied dishes including the duck and while there seemed to be a common flavor the dishes still seemed quite different. We had a good experience here and I thought it was a good introduction to creole food, and even took a copy of the menu home.

Visited with a large group (make reservations! Do yourself a favor--we did!) and tried numerous signature dishes--Blackened Drum, Blackened steak tips, etc. There's a reason that Paul is famous...the food and service really are exceptional. Good wine list--expensive, but many selections that are more for the budget minded and still work quite well with the many menu selections.

Great variety of appetizers too--which change depending on availability. Excellent overall.

Dined at this restaurant on Friday. 1/31/14. The first thing the server advises is that the restaurant has no refrigeration therefore all the food is fresh that day. Bourbon selection was excellent, dined on salads with the house dressing, outstanding. They served a variety of biscuits with the salad and dinner. Had the blackened filets, which were done to perfection.
Service was fantastic and would highly recommend this restaurant.

The atmosphere is pure New Orleans and the food is just "cajunie"enough. Great recipes and great service. Get the gumbo appetizer.

This is by far the BEST restaurant in New Orleans! Every time we come to the city, we MUST eat here! We've been going to K-Pauls for nearly 20 years now, and have found no reason what-so-ever to stop - his food AND the service are WONDERFUL!!!
