Martinique does it again!We hadn't been to Martinique in a few months, so the menu was quite different when we at there on 6/9/13. That's the way they roll there. Regardless, everything was outstanding, as usual. For example, the gumbo was among the best we've ever tasted at a restaurant, even though one wouldn't ordinarily think of Martinique when thinking of restaurants that are known for their gumbo. The scallops with snap peas from New Orleans East were delicious as well. This place is truly a gem!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOre-wedding girls lunchWe had a lovely experience for a fun girls lunch before our dear friends Wedding. The food was exceptional and the service was wonderful. We recommend, the scallop Niçoise salad, mussels, & the chocolate soufflé cake. Great experience6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOur special placeWhenever we celebrate a special time I love to go to your restaurant. Food is always good. Love the duck breast and grits.
sorry you don't serve this at night.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food in relaxing courtyardCan't wait to return to try more food in the lovely courtyard. The service was memorable and everything was delicious. Wonderful gluten-free options.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the $10 cab rideBased on reviews, I selected this for a team dinner in New Orleans. It was about $10 from the French Quarter/conference hall zone. Everyone loved the food and they had a very reasonable wine list too. My only complaint was that three of us ordered the same appetizer but only one of us got what we ordered. Instead of fixing it, the server argued that she "heard' crab salads and not crab fritters. She should have taken them back and instead disappeared. We could have gone to the manager but decided it was not worth it. The fritter was amazing, the salad - eh. Nothing great. I personally had the steak which was cooked a perfect medium rare to medium. The atmosphere is very warm and cozy. I would definitely go back.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's Worth The Drive uptownMartinique Bistro is a fabulous restaurant with perfect patio dining. The outdoor area is covered with a large tent along with fans and heaters depending on the season. The food is always fresh and creatively prepared using local seasonal items. Great wine list and creative drink specials. Perfect for special ocassions.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent all around! TheExcellent all around! The whole meal was delicious and the chocolate dessert - to die for!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Birthday MealMy husband wanted to go to Martinique for his birthday. Went with our two young adult chilren and we all had fantastic meals. Started with the Eat Local appetizer zucchini fritter, gumbo and pork belly dishes. Main courses were mussels - hubby said broth was so good had to finish it with the bread and a spoon, duck breast with an absolutely amazing deconstructed boudin cake, and fresh gulf fish entrees. For dessert had the Eat local blueberry tart with cream, peach borbon sorbet and the chocolate cake with guiness ice cream. Sat in the outside courtyard and it was very pleasant for the evening. Would highly recommend to those who love to eat good New Orleans food. Service was great.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMA go to restaurantLooking for an always excellent small restaurant, this is the place.

There is great indoor & outdoor seating available. We started with the Crispy Pork Belly which was fantastic. We each had the La Maison salad - also great. For dinner, my fiancee had the Louisiana Drum with Crawfish tails and I had the Gulf Shrimp. We both loved our entrees. The shrimp dish was very light. For dessert, we had the Dark Chocolate Fallen Souffle with Guiness Ice Cream. The ice cream was probably the highlight of the entire dinner - it was incredible. The staff was friendly and very attentive. We will definitely be back to Martinique!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and great serviceExcellent food and great service .

One of my favorite small places in new orleans.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLucky FindI travel quite a lot for business and prefer to enjoy my meals off the beaten path to experience the food meant for the people who live there as opposed to those who visit. My favorite restaurants in New Orleans are those neighborhood gems that rarely see the typical tourist. My attempts to make a reservation at a couple of my favorite places were unsuccessful and while talking to the concierge at the convention center she gathered by my wish list that I would also enjoy Martinique Bistro. She was right! The food was expertly prepared, portions were not overwhelming and the dessert was very unique yet delicious. The staff was very attentive and friendly. My friend and I had a wonderful time as well as a wonderful meal.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was delicious, andThe food was delicious, and the service was fantastic.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMbeautiful setting...excellentbeautiful setting...excellent service and outstanding food. a real pleasure4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMNicely paced, wonderfullyNicely paced, wonderfully presented, very tasty.

A lovely romantic reprieve from the bustle and hype of the French Quarter. The food was as good as the Commanders Palace - we do not eat meat or poultry - just seafood - and the selection was sufficient that we want to return to try other items on the menu. A lovely casual and very French feeling culinary gem.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMVisiting from PhiladelphiaVisiting from Philadelphia and lucked out finding Martinique Bistro.
