Amazing anniversary experience
Oh my gosh - we LOVE Sainte Marie! My husband and I came here for the first time for our anniversary. Our waitress was incredibly nice and brought us two complimentary glasses of champagne to celebrate. So yummy. We both loved the cheese plate that we shared. I had the chicken and waffles. OH. MY. GOSH. I can't stop raving about it. Best I've ever had. We will definitely come back. Any restaurant that treats us this well will definitely be getting our business. Thank you so much!

A hidden gem but not for long.
We stumbled on Sainte Marie, quite honestly, because we needed a place to eat the Saturday of French Quarter Fest (and weren't going to venture back in to the FQ) and didn't have any reservations. We were staying nearby and the reviews looked good so we gave it a try. Drinks were good, service was great, and we loved the chicken and waffles! The bread pudding with strawberry sauce was excellent as well. Would come back -- I would call this a hidden gem.

The fried chicken and waffles
The fried chicken and waffles with the hot sauce maple syrup was amazing as were the fish special and the pork chops. The staff were friendly and helpful. The berries with homemade whipped cream were a perfect finish to the meal.

What a great surprise
I've always known Ste. Marie for a great cocktail venue, but when we had Mother's Day lunch there with my wife, in-laws, and daughter, we were plesantly surprised at the quality of the food at such affordable prices. We can't wait to go back.

First Time Not the Last Time
First time dining at this restaurant and our family of five (ages 6, 15, 23, 50+) enjoyed it very much. Appetizers included the "grilled" Caesar, St. Marie salad, gnocchi and fromage plate. High quality and delicious. The fish-of-the-day fresh speckled trout really was fresh speckled trout and the entire plate was just right. The duck two ways was a generous serving of perfectly cooked breast served alongside a creamy duck risotto. And three of our party - yes, the youngest three - all had chicken and waffles. The chicken was boneless and amazing. The Crystal Hot Sauce syrup was a little spicy, it was a good idea to have it on the side. We were happy traditional maple syrup was also available. LOVED the New Orleans street map on the walls!

Service was outstanding!
The staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and special but without making us feel smothered. They were extremely friendly and seems honestly interested in making the meal a good experience. We came for lunch and both had sandwiches. My wife had the burger and I had the chicken sandwich, and we were both very happy with our choices. You won't be disappointed.

Just plain works.
Running a restaurant is not a business for rookies. This place just works. Menu for lunch is going to have something you want. Service may be best in CBD. Convenient and professional. And food is excellent. No hesitation to recommend.

Sainte Marie's is incredible. I was in town for three days and took friends two different times, once for lunch, one for dinner. Both times the food was amazing. The oysters are excellent. The Sam's Sak a mein was a surprise as I have never had this dish - but likely will on my my next trip to New Orleans. I particularly appreciated the local foods like the Alabama peach salad with pickled watermelon rind. Service was spectacular.

This was Carol and my third
This was Carol and my third time dining at Sainte Marie's. We've had a different main course each time, and all have been outstanding, my personal favorite is the chicken and waffles it's the best I have ever had.. All of the staff are friendly and really gone out of their way to provide excellent service. Sainte Marie sets a very high standard in a city known for it's restaurants. We have recommended Sainte Marie to friends that live in the New Orleans area as well as people from out of town and will continue to do so.

Love this place.
I have recommended Sainte Marie frequently since eating there the first time. The food is outstanding. Although right on Poydras many do not know it is there ... or how incredible the food really is. The chef is amazing!

Ste Marie never disappoints. Delicious food and great service, all in the heart of the city. One of my favorites!
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
This food was amazing. From the watermelon pork belly app to the hanger steak was mouth watering. The chef came to our table and explained the apps herself. I would definitely come back here, best food I have had in a long time!

White Linen Night. Bachelorette Party. Waitress was great and helped us get our order in before the 20 screaming girls'. Mussels oK, Béarnaise sauce was sub par. Not what you want in a purported French Restaurant.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent in customer service and a step up from common casual cuisine in the area. Clean and upscale, definitely one of the better places in the area, especially the Superdome.

I have a crush on Kristen Essig. And her chocolate desserts.

Our waiter was superb! Excellent job all around. Mussels tasty but small. Chicken sandwich very tasty.

Fantastic dining experience at Sainte Marie during Restaurant Week. Every bite was delicious and the service was amazing. I was also impressed with the wine list. Will definitely try to eat there again next time I'm in town.

quinoa crab and peach salad
quinoa crab and peach salad is the most perfect pairing for a salad. I am looking forward to another visit before peaches go out of season. One of the best dishes I could imagine for a summer lunch.

So great I ate there 2x in 1 week!
What can I say? Discovered this gem on Open Table and it was fantastic! To top it off I got lucky and caught the last day of Restaurant Week, so got a great deal on my first dinner. I was in NOLA for business for just a few days, but had to go back because the food was so good. Hope I have the opportunity to dine there again soon! Food, wine and service were all stellar. Very nice small restaurant ambiance as well.

The service was very good, without being over bearing, Roger, the maitre'd was a gem! He and our server, Taylor, were so helpful and made sure we were out the door to catch our concert on time. . I can't recommend the beef tartar enough! It was without a doubt, one of the best dishes, with the fresh arugula salad on top, to the bacon aioli, yummy stuff! The hangar steak was cooked to perfection, although I would have preferred a wee bit more peppercorn sauce, it was tasty stuff. The smoked chocolate cake was divine, especially with the caramel sea salt sauce, and butterscotch gelato. Portion sizes were spot on, and we left feeling quite pleased with everything.

We went to this restaurant
We went to this restaurant twice during one week. I first saw it mentioned in NewOrleans magazine. We tried the watermelon and pork belly appetizer with turnip and other goodies finished with basil oil. Sadly, it's available only seasonally. We had the last one. It will be a good memory My wife then moved on to oyster salad ("outstanding") and I had the shrimp and grits. It was slightly unbalanced with more shrimp than grits. A rare situation. We returned 6days later, just before leaving the city, for the pork chop finished with pepper jelly and roast duck.Capped off with a delicate genoise. Wonderful second trip. Friendly and efficient service. The servers were knowledgeable about the menu . It's in a pleasant room with an active bar.

New Gem on Poydras (new to us)
We discovered this neat little place while searching on Open Table for a place near our hotel. We were pleasantly surprised at both the ambience and the good. Interesting menu with modest prices for New Orleans--not inexpensive but good value.

Food and service were excellent, strongly recommend giving it a shot. The gnocchi and tartar were exceptional.
