Global, International
Combine guests’ favorite recipes of 46 years as a revered Memphis dining establishment with extraordinary chef-created offerings, and you have the popular, award-winning Paulette’s Restaurant.

Paulette's superb food, professional service, and warm atmosphere are consistent and unsurpassed. Tender steaks, fresh fish, Sunday Brunch, hot popovers with strawberry butter, and amazing desserts have afforded the restaurant national fame. As one food critic put it, “Paulette’s is a Memphis institution and for a very good reason.”

Paulette’s is known as Memphis’ most charming and attractive restaurant with an unparalleled ambiance and the most appealing river setting. It blends beautifully into the scenic, much acclaimed, planned community of Harbor Town. It’s accessible by way of oak tree lined North Parkway, which continues past the Pyramid and over the Willis Bridge spanning the Wolf River Inlet.

    We went for Sunday brunch to celebrate a belated Mother’s Day and were not disappointed. I had the chicken crepes that were divine. Our daughter raved about the French toast and hubby really enjoyed the crab cakes. Highly recommend the brunch menu. We will do that again.

    We’ve eaten there at least 4 times in the last year, it was amazing for the most part, last night wasn’t as good. It may have been the crowd but the food was off. The vegetables were hard and it wasn’t your normal. It’s normally a 4.5 to 5, last night it was a 3.

    Experience was good but seems like service is on a decline. Just looking around at the small details. Not as tidy and pristine as once was.

    We have been long time patrons of Paulette’s and always enjoy the chance to go back whenever we can. Our food was delicious and was brought to the table timely. Unfortunately, a sign of the times is there was clearly not enough wait staff to accommodate the number of tables they had seated or reservations for. There was also no bartender so the servers had to make all the drinks as well. t was Mother’s Day weekend so we understand how busy it was.
