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 is 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.

In 2023, Dickie Brennan & Co. welcomed Pascal's Manale into their restaurant family.

    I love the local vibe of this restaurant! Great drinks at bar and Uptown Thomas at oyster bar is entertaining as always! Despite a mix-up in kitchen on order, which was quickly corrected, a lovely and lively dinner as usual! Staff very attentive even with having a FULL restaurant.

    Drinks (gin martini) was disappointing. Very small glasses and only semi cold, when I requested very cold. BBQ shrimp also disappointing. Very little flavor in the sauce and shrimp. Veal picatta was OK, but nothing special. Also, we initially were seated with sun directly in my face when all other vacant tables were out of the sun. We asked to be relocated. Overall, not impressed and not near what I expected.

    Great food, cocktails, and service. The waiter was very friendly and prompt. We got water and loaves of fresh French bread and butter right away. Drinks and app came out in a timely manner. The entrees were also well timed and delicious. We got one dessert to share and it was also amazing. We love that they have their own parking lot with plenty of spaces. Wish it was a little quieter and better decorated. Overall great experience!

    Classic New Orleans Italian. Old school restaurant style with incredible food. Known for BBQ shrimp which I found less peppered than I thought but still delicious. Our Eggplant appetizer was also great and service by Courtney was fantastic. Will return!

    Disappointed. Food was mediocre at best and the only reason to eat here might be nostalgia and even that’s a push when Nola is filled with so many old and new restaurants where the kitchen actually cares. Best to skip this tired and thoughtless past prime spot. I can’t imagine the Brennan’s would eat anything served here.

    Classic old New Orleans restaurant known for their BBQed shrimp. The cocktails were generous. The wine selection was not extensive but well priced. (It wasn't hard to find a nice bottle. The Sancere was very nice.) The shrimp were delicious. I had a redfish filet covered with bbqed shrimp that was on point. The bread pudding and Tiaramisu were excellent. This is a traditional old New Orleans restaurant that is well worth a visit!

    We travelled to New Orleans for a milestone birthday celebration at this special restaurant. Truly, it has stood the test of time and is a New Orleans classic. Our dinner last night was no exception. Starting with oysters shucked by Thomas, we feasted on the famous barbecue shrimp. Others may try to copy, but Manale’s is the GOAT! A special dessert of bread pudding was delicious, too. Michelle was an incredible server and created a very memorable experience for us. Thank you!

    Pascal's Manale is a wonderful restaurant with long tradition. Our meal last night, for a party of eight, was exceptional in every way. Starting at the Oyster counter, our group enjoyed seriously delicious oysters, served by Thomas, who welcomes all with friendship and a steady stream of heavenly seafood. In the dining room, our server was magnificent and welcoming while fulfilling our highest desires with Manale's signature dishes. Food, wine, service and hospitality, all at a very high level and never fussy. New Orleans' gifts laid out with flair and warmth. The best.

    We make it a point to visit Pascal's Manale every time we're in New Orleans. Famous for its Italian Creole cuisine, the restaurant is renowned for its original BBQ Shrimp—a bit messy to peel, but absolutely worth it. Their bread pudding is the best in the city, and the staff is always friendly and accommodating. Our server, Carter, is particularly wonderful.
