“Small, Elegant, Delicious & Friendly with Great Wine List”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

The staff never fails to delight and pamper the guests. Menu is mostly French with a few Creole and Modern American flourishes. The classic roast chicken is my favorite. Wine list is well balanced and fairly priced. Glassware, silver and linen are perfect.

“Purty Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2013

Service was excellent. Food delish. Only drawback - which was not the restaurant's fault but - the parking is extremely limited.

“Beautiful small restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2013

Service is good, food great. This is a quaint restaurant in Uptown. It is a small restaurant but oozing with charm. The food was very good and the wine excellent.

“quite the delicious find in Uptown New Orleans -excellent value in a cosy intimate little house.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2012

Daisy Bistro was picked by one of our New Orleans friends who used to live nearby. We ended being a group of 10 - and all declared the meal to be wonderful.

I started with the lump crab appetizer - it came nested on a bed of beets - delicious. I shared the crab with a few others and all declared that appetizer to be the best. Others had the sweetbreads, the verdict being ok but spectacular.

For entree, I had the grilled filet of beef. I would have called this a tournedos. No matter, this was one of silkiestt, smoothest piece of beef I have ever eaten. It tasted divine. Only gripe is that I could have done with few more Lyonaisse potatoes - but then I never asked , and maybe should have.
My wife had the special lemonfish which she liked a lot.

I had the baked alaska for dessert - can't recall when I had one before - but this was definitely a hit.

Now the wine turned out to be quite the unexpected hit. We initially ordered a small carafe of the house wine - I always start there just to sample to see if there is a decent wine to be had. Lo and behold, this was a great tasting wine. Turns out it was a Ferraton 2009 Cotes-Du-Rhone and available as a full bottle for only $26.

Overall quite the find - we will be back on follow up visits to New Orleans.

Including tip, this worked out at around $80 a head - excellent value in a cosy intimate little house.

“Where Uptowners dine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2012 via mobile

Bistro Daisy is one of the lesser known New Orleans fine dining establishments. Lesser known, but not unknown. When we arrived for a 7:15 reservation on Saturday night every table in the tiny shotgun house was full. The clientele here was older and seemed almost purely local compared to some of the more popular Magazine street eateries which increasingly have been discovered by tourists (not that that's a bad thing).

Bistro daisy is run by a husband and wife team. The smallish menu is French inspired. The wine list is longer than the menu. The service is adequate, the bread good. Our reviews of the food were mixed. I loved the sweetbreads appetizer with pecans, pancetta and sweet potato sticks. His crabmeat with roasted beets was good but not remarkable. I enjoyed the evening's fish special with crabmeat and a satsuma butter sauce (that sauce would have made cardboard taste good). However, he felt his lamb, though extremely tender, was overly infused with mint. I had to agree; the mint overwhelmed the delicate lamb. I much enjoyed my dessert of berry dream sickle baked Alaska. However, the evening's special dessert, bread pudding, was ... Odd. Bread pudding is hardly a novel New Orleans dessert, but this was more like stale French toast than bread pudding.

Loved the cozy, intimate setting and the energy level. Some people might find it cramped and noisy. the parking lot is shared with other businesses and not easy to find in the dark. Get directions before you go.
