We recently dined at Dick and Jenny’s and has s wonderful meal. We read about the happy hour so we came early for that. We shared grilled oysters, boudin balls, and fried oysters for happy hour. For dinner we tried the fish and even though they were out of drum the fish was delicious. We also tried the shrimp and grits which was some of the best we’ve ever had. We truly enjoyed our dinner and even though we had not been here in years we were glad to see the food is just as good as ever.
Wait staff unfamiliar with the wine selections
This meal was one of the best ones I have had in New Orleans. I am surprised that it was not as full as it used to be, it may be off the beaten path but it is an extreme favorite!
Great meal. Very attentive and friendly staff.
Y’alls Oysters to Share are a hit!!
Blackened Fish also a hit!
I’ll be back!!
Dick and Jenny's is my favorite restaurant in New Orleans. Their food is consistently excellent
Awesome place with a unique feel. Great food.
Creative well-prepared food. Staff all great. Special dining experience.
Dick and Jenny’s was awesome. We were seated promptly in back area and it was quiet and intimate. The food was amazing- fresh, flavorful, and delicious. You could tell the food was high quality and it was a perfect blend of southern flavors while being healthy and not too heavy. I would highly recommend D&J’s and will definitely return.
Not a big menu but everything was excellent. Chair-broiled oysters out of this world. Best meal we had in New Orleans this trip. Will return every time I'm there.
Not near enough wait staff led to spread thin service and stressed-out people scurrying around the dining area trying to keep up. Some of the food was real good, while other dishes were disappointing. Spent a good chunk of change and did not get good value.
I have been bringing visitors to this place several times now, and it is always a big hit!
Loved this restaurant! The menu is not extensive, but what they have on there is delicious. We had the fried green tomatoes (good to share for two people). Our entrees were the Drum Fish with crawfish rice, and BBQ shrimp and grits. Both portions were plenty and the flavors were abundant. Service was great. The place is a little house with quirky decor. Would definitely try it if visiting NOLA
We booked here for a birthday dinner, arrived almost a half-hour early and found they already had our table ready and waiting. Service was attentive throughout the meal. The menu is not especially expansive (which is a nice change, actually) but everything we ordered was fresh, creative and delicious. Solid wine, beer and cocktail options, too. We appreciated the cozy atmosphere inside the cottage and the quieter location Uptown -- definitely enjoyed the experience -- thanks again to D & J's.
The menu is small but the food is incredible! The fried green tomatoes are a must. I had the black fish and it was excellent. The service was superb.
The food was outstanding. The grilled oysters and the roasted beets were perfect starters. The blackened drum was perfect. Geneva, the server, was very attentive and very sweet. All in all it was a wonderful experience!
We went for Valentines day. The Prix Fix menu included 4 courses plus a drink and was a great deal. All the courses were very good, although the dessert was a bit underwhelming. Servers and staff were friendly. Like many NOLA restaurants, Dick & Jenny's is in an old house. The decor is unique and fun. This is a great date spot, although there is plenty of room for people out to enjoy a good dinner as well. This was my second time and I would certainly come back for a third.
Great food. Early reservation. Seated right under freezing cold AC. Would have been nice to be offered a more comfortable seat elsewhere. Otherwise, great place.
Really good food and nice atmosphere, just very very expensive.
The food was very good especially the roasted beets with goat cheese and pot au creme dessert. Valentine's Day special was good value and tasty as well...had one of each entree.
We went for a Valentine’s Day date and all courses were delicious. We especially loved the beets- they had an awesome and surprising kick! Also recommend the sous vide chicken. Will definitely be back!
We went for Valentine's day so I expected it to be busy, but the dinner took over 2 hours. The food was delicious and the server tried to appease the diners as best he could. We were seated in a row of two tops that were about a foot apart from each other. This was a very uncomfortable situation as we could hear and felt a part of the conversation of the tables next to us. As we were leaving there were about 5 tables waiting for their reservation, my guess is because the previous reservations had run so long. My suggestion would be to not squeeze in the two tops, take less reservations and you will make more money because your customers will be happy and you won't have to comp items. I truly love this place and will definitely dine here again, but most likely not for a day like Valentines Day.
Lots of problems w service. Took one hour to get our meal from the time the order was placed. Restaurant was woefully understaffed .
Fried oysters were way over salted.
Always....consistently.....fantastic! Very friendly staff, wonderful chef.
The chef changed and the menu changed but neither was reflected on the website. The service was subpar and the food was ok. Desert was terrible and not properly cooked.
Was a great find. We live in the area. We had not been there before. It was a favorite of our visiting friends from out of town.
Food was great BBQ shrimp chicken great!!!!
Spectacularly delicious meal! Great service and really just so tasty :).
Small menu, but well executed.
Never overly loud.
Very good service.
The menu is very limited, but do start with the chargrilled oysters - they were delicious! The chairs on the concrete floor made a lot of the noise over the patron voices, but food & service were good and we would definitely go back.
Great drum and bbq shrimp. King Cake great!
We arrived in time for their happy hour appetizer and drink specials. We ordered several appetizers and shared an entree and dessert. Bill came to around $75 including tip. It was a great way to sample their specialties in a relaxed setting. Delicious food and great service.
My friends and I were the last seating of the night and there was an initial miscommunication with a server that we were in their table. Instead, the manager took care of us. He quickly corrected things, gave us free roasted oysters (which were fantastic) and throughout the night was attentive and helpful. This restaurant is out of the normal path of a visitor to New Orleans, but will be added to my favorite list due to it’s comfort. We ended up being there visiting among friends well after most of the staff left, but never felt rushed. Everyone enjoyed the food ordered (oysters, boudin balls, gumbo, shrimp and grits, a special of the night) and though the menu is not long, it had a good variety for a few different dietary restrictions. Thanks for a great night!
This is our second New Year's Eve at Dick and Jenny's and yet another meal to remember!!!!!! From the service, to the drinks, to the food, everything was amazing! Thanks!
Food was outstanding with fresh, in season ingredients front and center on a strong, focused menu. Service was outstanding, as we enjoyed a casual, wine-and-dine, much-needed date night.
We came late in the evening about an hour before close. We ordered the tasting menu and the food was fantastic. Even though they were close to closing time- the service was wonderful and we were never rushed. The drink pairings were very good and it was a great ambiance.
Fabulous meal, not too heavy. Exquisite bottle of Lisamarie pinot grigio, and I could eat an entire plate of the boudin scotch eggs!
Being that our names are Dick and Jenni we had to try this place. The food was excellent!! Everything was absolutely delicious! Our waitress though, needed a night off or an attitude adjustment. She was slow, almost rude at times and just plain not friendly.
But the food was so good she won't deter us from coming back!
Great prefix menu and wine pairings
Great for a family birthday, even better for an anniversary (note the plates on the wall celebrating customer couples), but we also love Dick and Jenny’s for a regular weeknight treat. Grab a seat at the bar, and enjoy some banter with the charming staff, some of the best chargrilled oysters in town, one of the lovely wines they serve by the glass, and you got yourself the happiest hour you can imagine.
