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.

Food was bland and cold. Service was only fair and the atmosphere was just basically plain. Not what I had expected.

Fabulous food. Very authentic. Messy though. All enters should include buns, not just the BBQ Shrimp. The shrimp diavalo was fantastic, washed down by Dixie beer.

The food was so good and the entire service staff were wonderful. I had the BBQ shrimp, the house specialty and is was very tasty. We had the shrimp and crab meat appetizer with the special golden sauce and is was excellent! I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

Food: Pascale's Manale is known especially for its version of Barbecued Shrimp, which many people find delicious. This time, it was not as good as it used to be, though it was still fine. The chicken dish was mediocre, the salad was completely ordinary. Oysters were good but not exceptional. Prices here are a cut below the best restaurants in town, but it is not cheap, and some things should be better. The desserts were the best part of the meal, including a superb pecan pie. Service: The waitress could do very little to describe the meals. She seemed almost completely ignorant about wine, and could not tell us the difference between two wines of the same sort on the relatively short wine list. She was not unfriendly but it was clear that this was just a job to her. I had a sense she had been there a long time and was used to working with regular customers who knew what they wanted.

Stuffed shrimp with crabmeat ... the crabmeat was all filler and the coated and deep fried. Eggplant appetizer was sliced so thin and coated and fried you really didn’t taste the eggplant. Very noisy but service was excellent.

Pascal's has been making us happy every time we've visited New Orleans for the past 32 years. It never disappoints. Classic fantastic Southern food always perfectly prepared, served in a fun relaxed ambience.

Took my granddaughter for her birthday. She loved the BBQ Shrimp, Oysters Bienville and the fabulous Bread Pudding. We all enjoyed! Have been going there for years and food is always consistent in taste and quality.

It has been some time since I visited this New Orleans classic restaurant. Our meal was perfect. I couldn’t resist getting the BBQ shrimp and they were amazing.

Superb meal with superb service. Combination remolaude to start, then Shrimp Fra Diavolo for my wife and for me a filet of drum in a lemon butter sauce covered with crabmeat and a couple of asparagus spears cooked perfectly. Finished with key lime pie. Yum! Ask for Louie - he’s wonderful!

We try different restaurants, we have season tickets to the broadway series at the saengar.
Everything was good.
We’d like separate checks, not allowed.
We’d like to split an entree. Kitchen would not accommodate these requests.

Food as always was great this family knows how to tend the stove. I would be remiss if I didn't mention our server Jill. Wife and I eat out often, this gal made an awesome meal even better. We will be back soon.

Upon arriving, the host was speaking to an employee. He continued for several minutes before acknowledging us. I had arrived with the cocktail from my house. The host next said “you cant bring that in”. When i tried to hans it to him aa they was no trash can, he didnt want to take it.

The waiter was ok. Not warm and fuzzy. Curt. We ordered drinks. Then comes the awful part. My husband and i ordered half dozen baked oysters and the couple with us ordered a dozen raw oysters. We got the baked ousters fast ; they were not good. The other couple did not get their raw oysters for 30 minutes- they kept asking the waiter and got non responses. When they finally got them , the waiter said there was a big party in the other room who had to be served first. Why didn’t he tell them to begin with? Why didn’t he ask if they wanted to order something else. Why didn’t he give them the oysters complimentary? I told him this 30 minute wait was unacceptable and asked him to tell management. He responded “tell them yourself. They don’t listen to me”. The main courses were just fair. When we were leaving , i gave feedback to the host/manager. The manager was curt and said thanks foe feedback. He was not sincere in my opinion. I again said the service was in acceptable. Then the employee standing with the manager - the person he was speaking with when we walked in - said “Jesus says thank you”. I was appalled. I never write reviews but this was a very horrible experience

BBQ shrimp- were very good as always. Could improve on pecan pie. Prefer whole pecans and a little more filling.

We had a fantastic dinner at Pascal’s. The food, atmosphere, and service were all excellent. They are family owned - the owners are there - and this makes a big difference
