Paulette's Restaurant at the River Inn of Harbor Town
Great for a romantic dinnerThis was our first time to Paulette's. It was a great romantic experience. The location was great. Our waiter was very nice and answered all of our questions. We would definitely return.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our Memphis favoritesWe first dined at Paulette's when we moved to Memphis in 1987 and they were in a charming house in Overton Square. We left Memphis in 1996 and didn't have opportunity to return until recently. The new location on Mud Island is just as charming. The menu has some of our old favorites (Filet Paulette, Chicken Brochettes, K-Pie, Crepes with various accompaniaments, and the popovers with strawberry butter - to name a few) but also has some new dishes that are equally wonderful! We have not been disappointed at all. Sometimes, when you haven't eaten at a once favorite restaurant in many years, on return it fails to live up to the memory. Not so, here! Paulette's lives up to and may even surpass our fond recollections of the past.!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial visitBrought my daughter due to her request when visiting from Illinois. She has fond memories of eating there when she lived in Memphis. She is a vegetarian and we were forced to come for brunch to get her cheese soup and special salad. The restaurant is heavy on meat, especially at dinner. This is a problem for her.
Our server was outstanding and made our experience special.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect nightEverything was perfect. Dined early. Quiet and peaceful.
Food excellent. Paulette's is better than ever!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMy date and I had a wonderfulMy date and I had a wonderful time and dinner at your restaurant. The waitress was extremely professional and very personal. We enjoyed her service and intelligent conversation. This was my first time at Paulette's but it will not be my last. Look forward to taking friends and relatives to lunch or dinner in the near future. Thanks a bunch!!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful findEnjoy your meal and then take a stroll along the Mississippi River or just throw down a blanket in the grass along the promenade along the river and nap. Lovely area.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day at PaulettesThe food was very good. We were limited to a set menu but that is not unusual for a holiday. We were served in a timely manner but not rushed. My wife has already asked to make a return trip to Paulette's. We might return next Mother's Day. We wish they hadn't moved so far away. We would visit them more often.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA Memphis institution relocatedA Memphis institution relocated to the riverfront from its Midtown location with no drop in quality of service or food. A wonderful place to dine with views of the river and an excellent menu featuring seasonal items as well as traditional favorites.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service. PopoversGreat food and service. Popovers and strawberry butter are excellent!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved itIt had been years since I had been to Paulette's. I had not been to the new location yet. Food was great and so was our waiter. It was really busy that night and the assistant wait staff forgot to come refill our water was the only reason I didn't give 5 stars.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMdo cross the bridgePaulette's is an outstanding dining experience. The menu is somewhat limited, but the preparation and presentation is work of art. There are many fine restaurants in Memphis, but few have all the requirements of fine dining. Overlooking the river, fine wine list, quiet layout so you can actually have a private conversation with your dining partner, and great service.
It dosen't stop there. Breakfast is a must.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGood for elevating your Self-EsteemExcellent way to revive the romantic sparks in your relatrionship with good food, healthy choices, and a dynomite bar service. Oh Yeah, the personnel are marvelous human beings who manage to mnake you feel as if you are gthe most important persons in the place!!!!!!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThere was a power failureThere was a power failure while we were there, making some things hard to judge.

Still was top knotch!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice for a special occasion.Very nice for a special occasion. Semi to dressy wear.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMQuiet RestaurantGreat place for lunch or dinner. They have a lovely bar, but it is small. The food and service are as outstanding as you would expect. What appeals to me about Paulette's, in addition to the great food and service, is that it is a QUIET restaurant. I've been amazed when we dine in a high-end restaurant that is so noisy you have to shout at the people with whom you are dining. At Paulette's you can have a civilized conversation with your table mates. Wonderful dining experience!4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first time there and weOur first time there and we enjoyed it very much. Our waitress, Donna, was wonderful as was Sarah. Beautiful place and food to die for. Loved that Jamaican Banana Crepe--yum yum. Not sure how I was supposed to respond to the Noise thingy.....Chose one block for quiet enough.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first visit andThis was our first visit and were impressed. The food was great, the service was excellent and we loved the ambiance. We will be going back very often.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMHighest Marks PossibleThis wasn't my first time to Paulette's, but it was my first since they moved to the Inn at harbor Town. It only made the experience that much better. I give highest marks possible in every category.

Not to mention that the food is GREAT!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMStill a winner!Paulette's is wonderful and hasn't lost since the move to Harbor Town from Madison Avenue! We ate the chopped sirloin which is so flavorful ( though the edges were a little overdone this time) and a lovely salad with strawberry crepe for dessert. One of my very favorite places in Memphis!3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good ingredients, uniqueVery good ingredients, unique recipes that are not overly seasoned, but very appetising.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food, wonderful service...sAmazing food, wonderful service...something for everyone on the menu.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, service andExcellent food, service and ambiance. Gem of a restaurant!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great service,Great food, great service, great ambiance. I withheld a star because the wine list is very weak for a restaurant of this caliber, but it's still probably the best restaurant in Memphis.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great dinner and experienceHad a great dinner and experience here. The attached River Inn was outstanding as well and complimented each other, nicely. The Salmon was that good! Would not hesitate in recommending both to all.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThe atmosphere was nice, antThe atmosphere was nice, ant the service was outstanding. It was very intimate and cozy.
