A modern take on the New Orleans kitchen with innovative and very fresh ingredients that works despite multiple ingredients. Intimate room and lighting. Very professional service. Charming owner/manager happy to assist. Very creative, high value wine list with an outstanding Malbec from Oregon. A definite serious not touristic restaurant.

This is a hidden gem in New Orleans. It doesn't even look like a restaurant when you arrive, it looks like you're arriving to somebody's house and it feels like you're dining in somebody's house. It is a small restaurant, there is no bar, but it is a very quaint and wonderful experience. The food was fantastic and the service... More

Enjoyed a delicious, well-paced meal on a Thursday with another couple, and found the experience enjoyable in most every way. The setting is comfortable, the room small, and the staff very attentive. Our primary server was just a tad odd; at one point she refilled one wine glass, but no others; she kind of trailed off in attentiveness during the... More

The best thing are the fried oysters with Brie, sounds decadent and it is. Very good New Orleans food. It was nice for our group. All dishes were very good, recommend for a quiet dinner in a nice setting, service very efficient. As usual bread is very nice in New Orleans. Recommend, it is a little way out in a... More

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

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighbourhood 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.
