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.

Salad drenched in dressing.
Red sauce out of a jar.
Burned chicken parm.
Crappy dried vermicelli (not spaghetti).
Spinach in a bowl of acrid water.

First time back since the lockdown and new ownership. Still excellent. Wife had Oysters Bienville and I had the Veal Gambero. Both were perfectly prepared.

We had heard that Pascal's Manale was not as good under the new ownership. We found it to be the same great Pascal's Manale that we have come to enjoy over the many years. It is everything I want a restaurant to be.

The food was fantastic as always. Love the BBQ shrimp! Service seemed really slow, even from the bar. We did have 9 people in our party, so that might explain it. We were provided our own room which was great.

Very disappointing! Besides the fact that our waiter showed little interest in us after we told him we were only splitting an appetized and an entree, the food was not good at all. We ordered the Oysters Rockefeller and they appeared to be frozen before served. They seemed like the topping was a pureed spinach mix that was squeezed through a type of cake icing decorator onto the oyster in the open shell then frozen before it was removed and warmed for service. Very second class. Our entree was Veal Gambero, penee veal with pealed Bar BQ shrimp. It was 6 medium/small shrimp with 2 - 3" diameter pieces of veal on a platter, nothing more. It was not served on pasta or a vegetable or anything. The entree took up only half of the platter it was served on. The shrimp were OK and the veal appeared to be deep fried. For $28 it was not worth it. Bad Service, Bad Appetizer, Bad Entree. We left unfulfilled and disappointed.

The wait staff did not always wear masks covering the nose. Some just wore a face shield which is not effective. And tables were not socially distanced.

It was so nice to finally get back to Pascal’s Manale after so many months in quarantine. Their raw oysters are the best in the city! We also got the crab cake appetizer- so light and very limited on filler- just like a crab cake should be. I got the fried shrimp entree and my sister got the scallops and shrimp over pasta- they did not disappoint! Highly recommend including Pascal’s Manale on your restaurant list as we re-integrate back into dining out!

We were greeted warmly. Three Of us were seated first and had drinks served while we waited for the remainder of our party to arrive. Once they arrived and served drinks we ordered appetizers consisting of some of Pascal Manale specials along with several dozen raw oysters.

We enjoyed visiting with each other and were not rushed to order our entrees. We ordered our food and finished a very great meal with great service.

Worth the visit and would recommend to all our friends.

I had pan roasted oysters & shrimp . Didn't like it very much. Other members of my party had bbq shrimp & crabmeat/scallops. They liked their dinner. Good desserts: key lime pie and choc mousse.

Old school Italian at its best. The appetizer portions were huge!!!! The entree portions just right and bread pudding was delicious. It's pricey, but you are eating in a piece of New Orleans history.

I try and repeat this old standby restaurant every time Im in NO which is typically twice annually. The food is consistent and portions are fairly large and you will leave full. I purchased a bottle of wine and brought a 24 year old Barbaresco that is difficult to find in any wine shop never the less a restaurant. I was charged a $20 corkage fee which is too high compared with other restaurants in this class. I understand corkage fees and dont mind paying one but I thought this was on the high end of corkage fees especially since I also ordered a bottle from the wine list.

The food was extremely disappointing. I ordered the shrimp and the first time they were over cooked. They insisted on cooking another batch and the second batch were undercooked. The waiter came to our table twice the entire meal. My date had to get us silver ware and bibs. It was one of the worst experiences eating out in this city to date. I am a resident here as well. I won’t ever be returning.
