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.

Mike B is a great waiter we had him the last time we ate at Pascal’s. Very attentive to everyone at the table. The service and food is always excellent. Had the Veal de la Gardelle great recommendation by Mike. We were celebrating my wife’s birthday and Mike made it Special.

Best of New Orleans Cajun and Italian food. Been in business since 1913, and a real all time favorite of folks from New Orleans. Great photo collection of past athletes who have dined.

I am a little fussy about food and service so I knew what I was doing when I went to Pascal's Manale. The food, as usual, was perfectly cooked and the service was superb. I will go again next week,

Great dining experience. Always consistently good. Loved our wait staff. I do have one suggestion. If you go to the trouble of inquiring if it is a special occasion the least you can do is acknowledge it with a little complementary desert. If you don’t want to know, don’t ask.

As good as I remember! BBQ shrimp was out of this world! Also, the fried calamari was cooked perfectly and the “combination pan roast” was amazing.

Pascal's Manale is a MUST when dining in New Orleans. We learned about this from an Uber driver and now we eat here every time we visit. The barbeque shrimp is the best you'll find in the city - that's because they invented the barbeque shrimp! The veal piccata was great, but the showstopper was the bread pudding. You'll find this all over the city, but Pascal's makes the best. Ditch the touristy restaurants downtown, and take the St. Charles streetcar to Pascal's - you won't regret it!

Our waiter wasn’t good snd it made all the difference.
Had to wait to order, had to ask for beverages several times.
Bar b w shrimp wouldn’t peel easily snd some she’ll still on shrimp. Told waiter, who did nothing.
Waiter short changed us at end.
Time before we had Jeanette, snd everything was perfect.

Food was good but the special was Drum and the sauce was not to my liking otherwise I would have given higher ratings. The sauce was the same as the use for the barbeque shrimp plate but something was off. The cost was also $36 so I thought it would have been better. We also had the crab cake special and it was absolutely delicious.

We too often pass up our New Orleans icons for the next glitzy restaurant. This place is organic New Orleans deep with roots and a sense of timelessness amongst all the transient sparkle. Go back. The bar tenders, shuckers and staff are “sweethearts” in a New Orleans only way.

Once being seated, it did take a while to be greeted by our server. We sat for 4-5 minutes without menus. Our server was friendly and service was prompt once we were greeted, however the soup I ordered was only slightly warmer than room temperature when served. Everything else was delicious, and it was fun to visit such an iconic New Orleans staple.

Happy New Year! We celebrated NYE at one of the best century old restaurants in New Orleans and was not disappointed. Everything we ordered was fresh, well seasoned and served piping hot with care. We especially enjoyed the Combination Pan Roast and Oysters Rockefeller appetizers. Cocktails were also great and the wine was served with a generous pour. I highly recommend Pascal’s Manale for lunch, dinner or any occasion. Go now, you won’t be sorry.
