A word from Dick & Jenny's
One block uptown from the corner of Napoleon and Tchoupitoulas, where century old live oaks shadow the famous music club Tipitina's, sits a mid-nineteenth century barge board cottage with burgundy clap boards and yellow shutters. Dinner plates line the walls and bear the names of Dick and Jenny's founding customers. Originally a grocery store, and later a po-boy shop, this funky New Orleans original is a gathering place for those who seek fine dining cuisine in a casual, comfortable setting. A small hand painted sign on the building hangs above the flower baskets and simply says "Dick & Jenny's."Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We liked it better than any other time we were there. The food was well prepared and very tasty and nicely presented. Like the fact we went on a nite when we brought our own wine and there was no corkage"

  • "The menu is really inventive and they put their own twist onto most every dish. Even classic southern or Italian entrees are treated individually. Their version of pasta Carbonara has little to with the classic dish. They served a fresh housemade pappardelle pasta with pork belly in place of guanciale and added fried oysters on top! It had little resemblance to Carbonara but was excellent. It was a carbonara in name only, well worth trying."

  • "I had been to Dick and Jennie's once before but my husband had not and we always said we needed to go. Finally I took him for his birthday and the food was incredible. Service was great, everyone was friendly. He loved the crayfish risotto and fresh fish!"
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "Excellent service from the moment we were greeted at the door and constantly throughout our dining experience. I felt like everyone who worked at the restaurant showed a vested interest in our dining experience, regardless of the fact that the food is amazing and speaks for itself. My friends and enjoyed our "ladies brunching/lunching" experience but I can't wait to go back with my husband. Ambiance fits a variety of occasions. Food was piping hot and savory."

  • "After having been to Dick and Jenni's a week earlier, we decided to go back with friends from central Louisiana to celebrate a birthday and and an anniversary. All four of us loved our entrees. After bite-sized taste testing, the dish deemed extraordinary by our group was the Veal Saltimbocca - lovely variation from the dish prepared in other restaurants by the use of fontina cheese. However, the stuffed pork tenderloin, flounder, and shrimp dish were all excellent as well. The only disappointment of the evening was the bread pudding. It was very heavy and dense and almost tough. Crème brulee was exceptional. Tiramisu was also good."

  • "My husband and I went there on Saturday night during a weekend visit . Our reservation was for 7:30. We were seated promptly in the front room. We loved the feel of old New Orleans with walls decorated with plates collected by a previous owner. The shrimp dish from the regular menu was a tad saltier than I thought was necessary, but was flavorful. The fried green tomato appetizer was good, but not outstanding. The spinach salad with crispy pork belly could not have been better as was the flounder dish from the regular menu. Our waiter was very helpful and very attentive. We will definitely go back and take friends!"

  • "Our family came in from the Chicago area to celebrate our New Orleans 30th birthday. We all had a fun time!"

  • "Food was ok. My dish was served room temp. Service not good. Restaurant needs remodeling. Seems like we were seated in a converted covered patio. I expected quaint. Not even close!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "The food and atmosphere was lovely. But all the drinks were less than par. From the wine list to the barely cold martini to the coffee"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "This was our second time here. Food is beyond words, and the Bloody Mary's are a must have. Staff was attentive and friendly. If you go for brunch try the Grits and Grillades"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "We had a large group in from out-of-town. We wanted to take them someplace special. Dick and Jennys was able to meet all of our expectations. The food was delicious! But in addition to that, the service was absolutely outstanding."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Dick & Jenny's was great. The restaurant staff was accommodating to our needs and request. When in New Orleans will definitely go again."

  • "We made Birthday dinner reservations and get there and they were closed. They called me 2 hours before the reservation to confirm it. Why did they all of a sudden close?? They could have called to say they would be closing for the night."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Due to a thunderstorm the electricity went out. The staff and owners were extremely gracious and did their best. We had finished our appetizers when the electricity went out and that was the end of our meal. The appetizers were delicious and the staff gracious. Will return at another time to complete a meal."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "If you are done with the chain restaurants, or want something truly local, this is the place to eat. Great food and service wrapped up in a uniquely fun and funky feel. I had the steak, and my wife the pork dish. Both melted in our mouth."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Terrific spot for creatively prepared favorites and new combinations. And two blocks from Tipitinas!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Dick and Jenny's is just the place for anyone who wants great food with service that is knowledgable and friendly and a place that doesn't think it has to overwhelm you with flourish. We love going there with "ladies who lunch" as well as dinner at a place for I town guests to give them a " NOLA" dining experience that isn't touristy and never disappoints."

  • "We had our Father's Day Brunch here. We ordered several appetizers and shared: Fried Green Tomatoes, Chicken and Andouille Gumbo, Savory Philly Cheesesteak Cheesecake, and Lox and Bagel Bruchetta. They were all good. I especially liked the salmon which had a very smoky flavor. Entrees were also very good. My dad enjoyed his Grits and Grillades although he did say it reminded him of a commodity they used to get in the 50s. I guess it was a tasty commodity. My wife and I had the special, a flounder over grits in a crystal based sauce. The flounder was perfectly cooked. I thought the sauce was a little heavy handed with the crystal, but my wife thought it was perfect. My mom had the Eggs Boudreaux, poached eggs and crab cakes."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Love this place. The food and atmosphere are always top notch, and the servers are the perfect mix of helpful and politely unobtrusive. My experience there is consistently satisfying and I'd recommend the place to anyone. In particular, the pork loin and Borsette dishes were the highlights of this visit."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • " so good. I got the salmon which was amazing and you should get the oysters for sure."

  • "FIrst time back since new owners. Happy to say, ownership is one of the few changes. Food still great, service still great, and lots of fun for diners!"
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Summer or winter, this place is one of comfort. Looks good, feels good, and staff treats one perfectly. Menu interesting without aging a bad case of the cutes - so common around our town! Most important: plenty of local favor! "

  • "I love this neighborhood spot- food is great, service is friendly and excellent, and the vibe is cool and comfortable. Love coming here!"
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "Very nice atmosphere and quiet enough for conversation, even when the room was full. The gazpacho was excellent, with lots of garlic and a nice bit of kick. The bouillabaisse was very tasty. The flounder, served over risotto, was very good as well. The service was also very good. Not overbearing, but nearby if needed."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Adorable atmosphere, fresh and delicious food, and attentive yet not overwhelming service. Will definitely return. "

  • "We had an early seating for a party of 11 following graduation ceremony. The food and service were outstanding! give the new pastas a try...you won't be disappointed!"
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "The food of this place seems to be greatly overrated, it's not so "special" and definitely does not deserve the price that you pay especially given the ambiance of a dilapidated house that you dine in."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "We were a large group, the staff was very accommodating and patient. Bloody Mary's were divine. As a New Yorker I have high expectations when I dine. Dick &Jennys exceeded all my expectations. Food was outstanding and creative. A must if you are in New Orkeans."

  • "The meal itself was great, but what really amazed me was that the manager gave four of us rides back to our hotel because no cabs were available due to the heavy rain. Talk about going above and beyond. Thank you, Angelle!"

  • "Loved the out-of-the way location of the place and the rustic feel of the place. A little disappointed with the cocktails, the apps were good, and we were 3 for 4 on excellent entrees (the veal was pretty gamey). Another great out of the quarter place to go."
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "I never write reviews for restaurants but felt compelled. The menu was diverse and the food was incredibly tasty. It's a bit of a hike from the Quarter, but absolutely worth the trip. "
