About Permanently Closed - Mat & Naddie's

This restaurant is permanently closed. Permanently Closed - If you're not from here, you probably haven't heard of us. If you are, you already know that Mat & Naddie's offers its own brand of fine dining combined with a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere that has attracted a local following since opening more than a decade ago.

Fine, yet accessible, local cuisine is the watchword here. Although we do get the occasional tourist who ventures off the beaten path, Mat & Naddie's caters to its neighbors' tastes.

Longtime Mat & Naddie's cook, Steve Schwarz, purchased the restaurant from founders Paula and Michael Schramel and their children Nat & Maddie (get it?). Schwarz creates the friendly and funky look of a roadside café that does not betray how very ambitious the Creole fine dining menu is. When weather is pleasant, diners opt for patio seating, which offers silhouettes of horseback riders on the levee behind which freighters ply their way up and down the Mississippi.

 (New York Area)·Dined on April 13, 2017

I have been to Mat & Naddie's twice and it has exceeded my expectations both times. The food is creative and delicious, the service is very attentive, and the wine list is excellent. They have a variety of incredible wines from all over the world--and at different price points. The cocktails are great too, and not absurdly priced for their high quality.

The restaurant is located in an old cottage along the river, so the ambience is pretty romantic. They have a patio with colorful lights ahead, which is very nice, but can get noisy with the traffic from River Road. All in all, it's another great restaurant in New Orleans that manages to maintain a unique character. Highly recommended!

 (New England)·Dined on April 7, 2017

I happened to find out about Mat & Naddie's while reading about New Orleans shotgun-type houses, and the restaurant is contained in two of them, I read. So, I took the St. Charles streetcar from the French Quarter out to the neighborhood which was incredibly charming. The restaurant is at the edge of a neighborhood of lovely, modest cottages from the 19th century. The food was also incredibly tasty and served with efficiency and graciousness.

The people were pleasant and the food was ok. The shrimp in the soup appeared to be imported and small. Steak was fine. Overall it was an ok meal but just average for New Orleans.

The restaurant is quaint and the food opinion is mixed. I got the chargrilled shrimp which had heads and tails on them Yuk! It was dry and hard to peel and only 5 shrimp that were not very big. I think they left them whole to make it look like more food. The sweet potato and avacado with the shrimp made for an interesting and good taste combination. My husband got the pork dish and he loved it. It came with potatoes and carrots and gravy that he said was very tasty and the pork was tender. He asked for bread to go with it and we were told that they have no bread. Really? Two glasses of wine, two beers, two entrees only and the bill was $98 before tip and no bread. Plus our waitress was slow. Cute place, good taste to the food - I debated about three stars or four, but I doubt if we will be back.

Mat & Naddie's is in our neighborhood, but this was our first visit is quite a while. It's an old house, which looked a bit shabbier than I remember. I started with the house made charcuterie, which was good. My wife had an oyster salad. She was surprised that it had no dressing until she found a puddle of dressing under all the greens. Odd. For my entry's I had chorizo spiced grilled shrimp. These were in the shell, though there was nothing on the menu to make me aware of that. The plate also held sweet potato purée, pieces of avocado, and several other bits and pieces. Probably at least one too many ingredients. My wife had crispy catfish green curry. This was certainly the oddest looking plate of the evening. The curry sauce was actually bright green, and as my wife put it, it looked like green slime. She said it tasted ok, but the appearance was certainly off-putting. I think this place has slipped.

We have not eaten here in about fifteen years, and that obviously was a mistake, because everything including the attentiveness of the the hostess and staff, and the food were outstanding. I am touting this as one our new rediscovered favorite restaurants, but I am hoping to keep it a secret so that it does not get overbooked. We plan to return for dinner in a month and already have made our reservations.

Grilled tuna special, chorizo and shrimp, and the two mushroom vegetarian dishes were all excellent. Chocolate Creme Brulee was delicious. However, Sauvignon Blanc - Chenin Blanc blend that was available that evening was unimpressive. I would prefer to see a wine by the glass list. It was difficult to find all the wines by the glass in the comprehensive wine list.

Fabulous as always! Matt & Naddies does New Year's Eve dinner beautifully - better than most other popular restaurants in New Orleans. Have lived here a very long time and just had the best red fish ever tasted. The Blue Crab bisque was devine and the tomato/goat cheese tart excellent. Throw in quail egg appetizer (presented as lagniappe) a glass or champagne and a heavenly spice cake with satsuma orange filling and burnt cinnamon icing, and we left completely satisfied. Fortified too by delicious cocktails. Love this place!!

An intimate, comfortable, albeit sometimes noisy, dining room with a pleasant deck for outdoor dining. The food is excellent, especially the fried oyster salad, which is delicious beyond belief. It's location is outside the area frequented by tourists, and so is a dining gem for locals. Easy to find and get to by car, with abundant parking across the street. It is one of my favorite places to dine in the city.

Mat & Naddie's is an old favorite of ours in New Orleans! We were in town this past weekend and were happy to return. We started with the butternut squash soup and roasted pecans.. My husband had the green curry catfish and I had the sesame crusted oyster mushrooms. Our entire meal was fantastic! Accompanied by a bottle of Emeritus Pinot, we could not have been happier!

Talk about a welcoming atmosphere! We arrived early on a late September afternoon for a reservation of 5:30 (opening time). It was 93 degrees in the shade...and there was no shade. The wife of the chef graciously stepped out and invited us to come inside for a cold beverage, even though the staff meeting was still going on. Everyone was so gracious. Dinner was superb, the ambience was just right and the chef even allowed us to purchase a jar of his specially made pickles to take home. A true NOLA star in our local restaurant line-up
