    The place was very nice; unfortunately the food was not that great. My catfish was under cooked and my husband's food was bland. I would probably give the restaurant another try before I wrote off the restaurant.

    We enjoyed lunch then came back three days later for dinner. Dinner we had the gumbo and salad and soft shell crab po boy, which rocked my world! Dinner the seared scallops and duck done three ways, each tasty and done exactly as we like. For cocktails, The Jolie and White Manhattan highly recommended.

    Very nice restaurant. Decorated with Rodrigue prints, it has a warm Acadiana feel. We had Their Oysters Bienville, Rockefeller, and Jolie, Crawfish and sausage gumbo and Italian soup which were all good, not great. Skip the foie gras. good bread, good wine. The manager set up a little tasting of aperitifs which was really nice of him and enjoyed by us. They just made sure we had a nice evening, and so we did.

    Great food, great service, horrible table! Although the restaurant was empty when we arrived, we were seated at a small table in a corner near the kitchen. It was uncomfortable and the dimensions of the table seemed to be rather small; the waitstaff had to continually remove serving dishes so that there was place on the table for our plates and cutlery. We were very disappointed in the seating!

    We just arrived in Lafayette late Wednesday evening and were looking for a nice place to experience the Lafayette ambiance with my wife. I had been working down here for some months and the program was winding up and I took her along down for the finish of the program. Jolie's was very close to the hotel (Lafayette Airport Homewood Suites) and the web page looked as if Jolie's Bistro was exactly the kind of place we were wanting. We were not disapointed at all. The staff was friendly. The service, even though we were the last customers for the evening, was impecable. The food was very good and was well explained by the wait staff. My wife loved it and I'm glad we picked it. I'll certainly go there again next Lafayette visit.

    The food was exceptional and the service very attentive. We were a party of 3; for appetizers, we split the turtle soup, crab cakes, and fried green tomatoes caprese. My daughter and I each had the 8 oz. filet (we like ours rare) and they were exceptional. Better than Ruth's Chris and it's hard to top that. My son-in-law had the yellowfin tuna; he said it's one of the best he's ever had. Pound cake and creme' brulee topped off our meal. It's pricey, but the food experience is well worth it. You can tell the care with which they prepare food and it's fresh! Will definitely be back.

    Beignets brought to the table upon arrival.The Cioppino Stew was one of the best things I've ever had. Other dishes tried were definitely good, but less stellar...regret not ordering the hog's head cheese corn dogs, not sure what I was thinking that was the reason I went. The Bar seemed like a nice place to sit and have a drink and discuss with a knowledgeable bartender and the dining area was very nice without being uncomfortably upscale.

    Over the past 4-5 years, we have been to Jolie's once or twice every year and have always had fine food and excellent service. We shared some duck fat fingerling potatoes, as a side for an appetizer, and they were amazing, split a Jolie Bleu salad with just enough bits of bacon and bleu cheese to be special, then I had the cioppino, which is consistently the best I have had anywhere, with shrimp and scallops and fish, served with a rouille on the side that really elevates the dish. My wife had the very lightly fried flounder that was perfectly prepared with a lemon almost-Hollandaise except with hard boiled egg whites instead of yokes. It too was imaginative and very, very good. We had a reasonably priced Pinot Noir. Tyler served us well.

    Wait staff was great. My tuna was a little undercooked but it was likely my fault since I asked for it medium rare. Even though I didn't ask for it to be taken off the bill, our server took indicative to remove it. The rest of our food was amazing. I highly recommend the brownie for dessert. It is one of the best brownies I have eaten.

    Service was slow. The waitress got the order wrong for appetuzers, salads and main course. It was like she was not even listening. Never came to table to check on us, we had to ask other servers to get her. It was not that busy for her to be so slow or mess up orders. If we ever went back, I would make sure we did not have the same waitress.

    We have been meaning to eat at Jolie's since we moved here last July, we have tried many of the lovely restaurants Lafayette have to offer and just as we suspected this one does not disappoint! The menu was filled with many delicious choices, which made it difficult to choose, which isn't a bad thing! The food came in good time, the service was wonderful and the atmosphere was perfect for a relaxing Sunday afternoon. The Steak and Egg was oh so good! We can't wait to return and taste the other menu dishes.

    In NOLA for a convention and drove to Lafayette to visit the Rodrigue gallery. Dinner at Jolie's was superb! Nancy was an excellent server! Food and wine were perfect and unique, especially the bacon-wrapped-ricotta-stuffed dates, gnocchi, filet, and pompano special...and crème brulee for dessert. Also enjoyed the George Rodrigue art...everywhere we looked!

    I dine at Jolie's two or more times a month and found in the last few weeks the food has been even better. I am told there is a new chef and she has outshined the previous chef. I have noted a couple of things changed but not necessarily for the better. The crab cakes are great but noted the overabundance of greenery and less crabmeat overall. Nice to have the bone marrow cut length wise...smart move. One comment regarding the service, service is not consistant. Bread and butter should be brought automatically and not requested. The waiters also need to be well versed in the menu. Not sure is not an answer. Service is stronger the busier the restaurant is..... Friendly staff.

    The parking lot was completely empty at 11 am on a Sunday. Unheard of in Lafayette. The restaurant we usually go to has at least an hour wait and most restaurants that serve brunch don't take reservations at all. We chose Jolie's because we thought it might be quieter and it was my mom's 75th birthday. We had four brunch entrees, shrimp and grits, egg frittata, scallops and eggs and crab benedict. All under seasoned and overcooked. We didn't drink and for four people, three small ladies and a man, the bill was 140.00 before tip. I don't blink at spending that at brunch for just my husband and I, but I was embarrassed at the poor quality of food and so disappointed that I had chosen Jolie's to celebrate such a special day.
