It was their last service. It's unfair to write a review. I will say that it was a restaurant that my wife and I enjoyed visiting through the years.

The server was very kind and did a great job. The menu did not have any great breakfast type options and the coffee was not good. I got the seafood egg plate and the eggs were undercooked and I wasn't impressed with the dish. That being said we have been there for dinner in the past and were much more impressed and the drinks were great. Always kind people and good service.

We had Sunday brunch at Jolie's and it did not disappoint. Our table of three had the tuna poke appetizer, the shrimp & grits, the grillades and grits, and the coconut cream cake. Our drinks included the Jolie & the White Queen. The only complaint I would have would be the coconut cream cake was not very good. Our waitress told us it was the very last piece. It was very dense and stale. Other than that the food was absolutely delicious. Our second round of drinks took quite a while to get to us for the restaurant not being crowded. But overall we enjoyed our brunch and will definitely return again.

This was my first visit as it had been recommended by a friend. Service was excellent. My party went on a Sunday so we got a brunch menu - there was a nice selection, but I would have preferred a more varied menu and less of a "breakfast" type selection. We did have the beignets with chocolate sauce - they were not quite as light as I am accustomed to (Cafe de Monde) and one order of 5 was very filing . The mimosas and bloody marys were great. That being said, my food was delicious and I am definitely looking foward to a return visit.

The service was excellent. It may have been the fact that the restaurant being only 40% full as it was the Friday night after Thanksgiving and people were still eating leftovers. We ordered the semi-boneless chicken half and the grilled pork chop. Both were excellent. The juice from the chicken had a slight tang like balsamic vinegar in the mix with the onion and garlic. The pork chop had 2 ribs with the meat between the 2 bones with extra thin fried onion rings on top. The onion rings may have had pecan meal instead of flour mix which gave an excellent flavor. The House salad was something to write home about...with lots of unusual lettuce leaves, extra thin onion slices, and roasted red peppers. The chef sent out a couple of hors d'oeuvres on a half piece of Melba toast for our opinion it contained garlic, pecans, cranberries, crab meat and cream cheese mix. It was very tasty.

Food was terrific: crab cakes, baked oysters, soft shell crab Oscar! Restaurant was slammed due to LAGCOE, huge energy expo, so noise level was way up. But, that is a very unusual situation. I was happy to see lots of folks eating out on the town, so noise didn't spoil a thing!

A friend loves to go here so I gave it a try...nice ambiance, good for a date night. Crab cakes were delicious, the main entree I had was the redfish and it just wasn't well seasoned in my opinion but the shrimp on top were good. My husband said the same about the duck.

I have been to Jolie's several times. This time was for my mother's 70th birthday. Service was excellent throughout the meal. Our waitress new all of the menu items, their preparations, and what wines to pair with them. The food arrived at the correct temperatures, neither too hot or too cold. The flavors are wonderful and portions are on the generous side. (I always enjoy a bit more food!) The standout appetizer for me was the bone marrow with ox tale marmalade (perfection), the chicken is better than mom's (really that good!) it was moist and tender resting delicately on a lemon herb butter sauce (had to take a moment and pray again to thank God.), and finally dessert was their bread pudding this is no joke- I was like being a kid on a cold December morning at grandma's house having her special breakfast that you can only have from her almost like being hugged and kissed by grandma and being fed a spoonful of love. (Yes, that good.) But keep in mind high marks like this are earned on a meal by meal basis. I hope they continue the superior service, but what I see is that if something is not meeting your expectations, they will make it right if you let them know.

Brunch on Sunday was great fun and very satisfying. Since it was hot and we had our dog with us, we wanted a nice brunch in a pet-friendly setting - Jolie's met this criteria. We sat on the porch and though it was hot, the overhead fans were adequate. Food choices were interesting and priced fairly, and the wine list had selections that were thoughtful and well-matched to menu. They, too, were priced fairly. The food was well prepared and made with first-class ingredients. Service was good even though they were busy.

The food is always great. I do not like to go to a restaurant where the tables are on top of each other. I feel like someone sitting at another table is listening in...It is NOT like that at Jolies. It is very comfortable. It feels private although there are other diners.

You are never rushed to get out of the restaurant to turn over a table.

Using Lafayette as a central meeting spot for my Texas and Louisiana family to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday, I had to select Jolie's based on the reviews online and the word of one friend. Luckily, the choice was a good one. The staff was courteous and accommodating , and the food was delicious. Appetizers of mussels and crab cakes were a big hit. All 10 in our group were happy with their selections of redfish, steak, braised pork, and chicken. The Brussels sprouts and Gouda mac and cheese were delicious sides. I would definitely encourage others to visit Jolie's.

We hadn't been to Jolie's for dinner in quite awhile because the food choices were limited and although well prepared, the use of herbs and spices was absent from our entree's. In addition, the side choices were very limited and not prepared well; cold & tasteless. We were so disappointed because Jolie's used to be one of our favorites. Our server, Dorita, was outstanding; professional and very solicitous. Another issue we noticed, was that all of the diners were seated on the same side as the kitchen. When the room became full of diners, it became very warm & uncomfortable to the point that we didn't stay for coffee or dessert. We noticed the other dining area was almost empty and considerably cooler. There are too many other fine dining choices in Lafayette.

We were visiting from out of town, and found Jolie's via recommendations on OpenTable and urban spoon. We were not disappointed. The ambience Is delightful, the food wonderful and the service fantastic.

The bartender went out of his way to talk to our group about absinthe and ensure everyone was happy with their drinks.

This was a great place to dine ! The food was delicious, the ambience was great, and the service was wonderful! I booked this after reading reviews on several sites....and was not disappointed. Our meal began with a cold cucumber soup(complimentary) and DELICIOUS bread served with a strawberry sage butter. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about all dishes. We had appetizer serving of shrimp and grits, seafood gumbo, a redfish dish, a coconut parfait, and an awesome sweet potato bread pudding! Every dish was expertly prepared! I highly recommend this neighborhood gem!
