Great place for dinner. Food was fantastic, small plates done well. Wish we could have tried them all. Fun atmosphere, service was good. Reasonable wait for a table on a Saturday night.

My friend and I were looking for some good food on Frenchmen's Street and found it at this cute venue. The small plates were different and delicious, the cocktails were tasty, and even the pecan pie was excellent (and not so small). I'm a bit of a foodie and not so easy to please but this measured up.

Love the atmosphere and food at this place! You can't go wrong eating tapas and listening to jazz with great friends. There is a time limit for your reservation of 1.5 hours but that is more then enough time.

The music was great, the food not so much with one standout exception -- the macaroni and cheese. They serve small plates designed for sharing, but the menu was limited and an odd selection of items -- that don't really complement each other. There were a few items that were modified versions of tapas. > The menu online and the... More

It is a great spot to listen to live music while enjoying good food and great cocktail list. It has a real artistic Frenchmen St vibe and the experience was truly great for me. Be sure to make reservation if you can. It gets pretty busy.

We came for the live music (a pianist starts early, followed by a band at 7pm) but really liked the food and drink better! Fresh innovative dishes - a raw fish crudo, delicately seasoned fish tacos - yum. A bunch of unique bourbon cocktails. It's in a different part of the city, get away from Bourbon Street and give it... More

We went to this restaurant based on the recommendation of friends who live locally and who came with us. It is in the Maringy district on an interesting street. Best to ave reservations. Because they play live music, they only give you the table for a set time in order to turn the table over so others can enjoy the... More

Great place to eat on the edge of the French Quarter. Good food, live music, nice atmosphere. What more could you ask for? Well, a reservation would be a god idea -- it's small and popular.

Three Muses is a small restaurant with an intimate feel, and they get great musicians. The food is almost tapas-like, so you get two or maybe three each, and they're wonderful. I loved the scallops and my wife found the pork belly so delicious she got two orders! Our daughter enjoyed the fries. Great place. Be sure to make a... More

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighbourhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
