French American
Gautreau's has been a locals favorite since 1983. Local seafood as well as fresh fish from the Northern Pacific and the Atlantic have been featured items for decades. Innovative wine list changes frequently and is filled with well chosen wines from small producers. The restaurant is 3 blocks from St. Charles Avenue and only a 15 minute drive from the French Quarter. The building is in a quaint uptown residential neighborhood with street parking available.

Gautreau's chefs have been recognized nationally by the James Beard Foundation, Food and Wine magazine, New York Times, Zagat and others.

"The restaurant's reputation for developing young talent has earned it much national press, and owner Patrick Singley allows his hires wide berth" food critic of the Times-Picayune.

Private Party Room: Comfortably seats between 15 and 25 guests. Full buyouts of the restaurant are available. Please call 504-899-7397

    As a local, it is always a pleasure to go to Gautreau’s. The noise level can be a problem. I asked for a table in the quieter section and the host complied. However, the folks at table next to us were exceedingly loud. Regardless, it is a wonderful restaurant.

    Anniversary dinner celebration ❤️ The food was insanely delicious, full of flavor with the chef using unique ingredients. Presentation was eye candy - but make sure you save room for dessert. By all means, get the blueberry dish with goat cheese ice cream. Promise you will be glad you did!! Ps- notes about there being no signage is correct. There is ZERO signage. ;)

    Beautiful little restaurant in the Garden District neighborhood. Everything was wonderful except the noise level was almost intolerable. Lots of people having lots of fun! Our party included 2 men with poor hearing so it was difficult to have a conversation. We understand the restaurant is small and when a few tables left it was much much better. The food was delicious and creative. Great evening overall.

    Always a treat for NOLA out-of-towners like us. Embodies classic southern charm and the food is delicious. Only down side is the place is a bit noisy with energetic conversations all around. But that’s a very minor inconvenience… Thierry from Boston
