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.

    Five stars is not enough to describe the experience, the food and the service at this restaurant. The food, especially the raw oysters, were excellent. To top the appetizer, the BBQ shrimp were out of this world. I would highly recommend for locals or tourists. The service was superior. Very attentive and professional, but fun and entertaining.

    The only thing was the gentleman who handles the dirty dishes and silverware after cleaning a table , was the LOUD NOISE coming from the closet Room he was in. It Happened few time while we were there. Don’t Need To Be Hearing That.

Price was high, for a lunch, and know prices are high everywhere!! Good convenient Parking. I would definitely go again. Oh and using this app was really easy!!

    Thomas at oyster bar was great. Our service at dinner was not what I am used to at Manales. Asked for butter never got it. Late on salad. Didn’t anticipate our needs like normally. Turtle soup was not hot and never did bring me Sherry. The support staff was good with water etc.

    Nice old world restaurant. Service was great and food was delicious. Had the chicken dish, it was very rich but very tasty. Husband had the fish, drum, and it was tender and flakey. Blue cheese dressing is homemade and worth ordering a salad so you can taste it. Key lime. pie had just the right amount of tartness. Will definitely return to try the shrimp.

    My husband did not want to go since during the previous ownership the food, service, etc was horrible. We went last night and it was wonderful. Everything we ordered was a 10 out of 10: raw oysters, gumbo, turtle soup, veal parmaesan, and a hot dish of oysters, crab, and shrimp. I could go again tonight !!

    This was our second time dining at Pascal's Manale since it became a Ralph Brennan restaurant, and like the first time, the food and service were absolutely impeccable, and just wonderful. However, the noise level in the dining room on the left is almost unbearable with a full house, as was the case both times dining there in recent times. We were told renovations will be started in the coming months, and we can only hope that a substantial amount of soundproofing will be part of the interior remodel. As much as we love the food and professional and courteous service, I'm not sure we will be going back due to the extreme noise level. This last visit we were seated next to 3 guys drinking and yelling the entire time in order to be heard over the already loud room noise, and they were so loud it triggered a migraine headache. The food and service is top notch though, so bring ear plugs and learn sign language until the interior renovation is complete!

    Nice atmosphere, but food is good, not great. BBQ shrimp did not all seem super fresh...a couple were mealy. Crab cake had a lot of filler resulting in a bready texture. Au gratin potatoes were decent. Very good service. Need to up their game in the food quality to keep their reputation.

    I have come here for 50 years or more (since I was 12). The BBQ shrimp is fabulous just as I remember. My friend had the veal and was very impressed. The gumbo was the best of 4 I've had on this trip by far. The chocolate mousse was the first I'd ever had many years ago and is still the best. Eric our waiter was attentive and kind. The service was awesome. It's old school. Not modern, not foofy. It was established in 1913 or so and has that ambiance. The food and service were great.

    From someone who lives in a HCOL wow what a deal this place is for first rate dinner. Everything we ordered was phenomenal. The Veal Gambino is fantastic and a great way to add the BBQ shrimp in the meal. Fried Eggplant was the best I have ever had. The Crabmeat & Scallops pasta was a perfect Italian NOLA dish. Everything was great, and look forward to coming back one day.

    Very disappointed to be served a martini in a RED WINE GLASS. Really? Was told they didn’t have any martini glasses. This restaurant screams for drinks served in martini glasses. We”ve eaten at this restaurant many times, but this experience really surprised me. Such lack of concern and detail makes me wonder about the current direction of the restaurant.

    Pascal's is a Nola treasure - just ask all the locals who count themselves as regulars. I'm in that number - today's lunch was great! The homemade blue cheese dressing is the best ever! And the veal piccata was tender, lemony and had plenty of capers. Hot French bread, bread pudding for dessert. Our server Jeanette was efficient, warm and helpful. Of course, I'll be back!
