Italian
Founded in 1913, this family-run, Italian-Creole restaurant is located in uptown New Orleans. It is famous for creating barbecued shrimp.

This neighborhood restaurant is vintage New Orleans, from the service to the decor. The oyster bar always manned by a friendly shucker. The oysters are fresh, salty and delicious.

The old time oyster bar and cocktail bar offers raw oysters on the half shell and all types of cocktails. We offer fine seafood, Italian specialties and delicious steaks.

The food at this old established restaurant in Uptown New Orleans is delicious. The BBQ Shrimp is an iconic dish for Pascal’s and the price is good, too. The wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable and the atmosphere, while a little noisy was still very enjoyable. I highly recommended a meal here when your in town.

Came Highly recommended. Food was good but the service was lacking. Waitress forgot bread, water and wine glasses were constantly lacking. The table next to us received very good service, pretty sure they were a good friend of the host as he made a special trip to say hello and make sure they received good service. Seriously disappointed. Wanted to love this place.

This was my first time back after they've had a change of ownership. It seemed exactly the same. Food was excellent, service fantastic, same chill old school vibe. One thing I noticed which I really appreciated was that there seemed a lot more female employees than in the past. Both our server and busser were female presenting and gave top notch service!

Cocktails were very tasty and really liked some of their new innovative additions. Their Manhattans are still some of the best in the city.

We were a 4 top 2 of our table had the coolinary menu and other 2 ordered ALA carte. All courses came perfectly timed and tasted great.

Raw oysters were delicious, all other dishes were saturated in a sauce of some type which was meh at best. Rooms have guest packed in way too close and the noise level is similar to an Aerosmith concert, dont expect to be able to have a conversation with your table guest at a reasonable level. The waiter we had was decent but it took about 20 mins to get our drink order and the same time separation for appetizers then main dishes. I would go back for the oysters but that’s probably about all.

Lovely, elegant traditional New Orleans place (108 years old!). The food was delicious- and authentic, the service was just right, and the ambience is quiet and relaxing. We had a drink at the bar after lunch and plan to make it our “local.” Superb in every way.

Going to see Sebastian Manascalco @ the saenger so we HAD to go enjoy some delicious Italian food prior. We certainly weren’t disappointed- it was wonderful. Our waiter was superb- he was so relaxed and comfortable with us - he joked around entertaining us while simultaneously giving us prompt service. Only wish the crime would get under control so we could return to enjoy all the wonderful things this magnificent city has to iffer

First our server Toya was amazing! She was so kind and attentive and that will always make a meal better. My husband and I are here for his business trip and he frequents Pascal’s Manale and has raved about their bar-b-que shrimp and they did not disappoint. I knew it was going to be serious when Toya put our bibs on! The shrimp were so flavorful and the sauce, while pepper spicy, was divine. Especially when they give you plenty of crusty bread to soak it up with. We split an entree that had scallops and crab meat in a cream sauce over pasta and it was delicious. We had grilled asparagus and scalloped potatoes as our sides. The scalloped potatoes were so delicious I could have licked the platter. We finished our meal with the chocolate mousse and it was heavenly with little chocolate bits and yummy whipped cream with each bite. I can’t believe I forgot to mention the martinis! Tuesdays they have 2 for 1 martinis. I had a lemon drop and hubby had a dirty and they were awesome! Check this place out, ask for Toya, and you will not be disappointed!

My food was not as good as it was several weeks ago when I ate here.
I had the Oysters inferno.
My companion had oysters and I believe that she was satisfied,

I have recommended Manales to several friend after my first visit, but was very disappointed in my meal yesterday

Wonderful dinner. Mike our server was excellent with great red and white wine choices. My husband had the barbequed shrimp which is always wonderful and I had the veal piccata with angel hair--delicious! We also had the onion rings. They are definitely a hit. Have been going to Pascal's Manale for years and will definitely return. So many fantastic things to eat there and great service.
