Best meal in 2021
Visiting New Orleans and checking on Michelin Star Restaurants. The food was superb and the waiter was very friendly.
Everything is prefect. From the moment you walk in and Patrick seats you, you are in for the best meal and dining experience in New Orleans.
Quaint, charming restaurant hidden in the uptown neighborhood. Highly recommend the filet, flounder, chicken, and beef tartare. I’ve had better fois gras, but overall a delightful experience. We will be back soon!
Delightful French-inspired food with excellent service. Take your time and enjoy a slow meal. There are no wrong choices on the menu.
Excellent restaurant with a great wine list. Can’t go wrong dining here.
I used to live in New Orleans area and brought my father here for a weekend late Fathers Day dinner. The host (forgot his name!) was so professional and kind. The servers were spot on, attentive while respecting space. The food was perfect for our meal. We will definitely return. It’s a little chilly so bring sport coat. All NOLA locals here, which is the place you want to eat!
Food was outstanding - the duck confit was the best I’ve ever had. Service was attentive but not intrusive . I left my hat and backpack and the restaurant and did not discover it until I got back to my hotel. When I called the restaurant the owner assisted on sending it over himself. Ambience is like attending a private party with friends. Overall a wonderful experience.
A perfect meal in every way. Spectacular food and impeccable service in a beautiful room. Thank you for making our 30th wedding anniversary a night to remember- the restaurant is as good as when we visited on our honeymoon.
Patrick recommended a wine that my companion was not familiar with. After tasting it, she really enjoyed it. It was a Viognier from California.
personal touch by the owner was appreciated, ambiance and familiarity/comfort of the evening was very inviting. The chicken dinner was delicious as was the grouper. Highly recommend for an enjoyable evening.
I arranged this dinner for a special birthday celebration, and I could not have hoped for a better outcome! The food, service, and overall environment were too notch.
Gautreau's is better than ever. Don't miss it. Very creative and excellent menu.
Lovely as always. Great food, great service. It is a small space so it can get loud.
Great food and great service, as always. It was good to see the restaurant full after COVID.
As always, it was wonderful.
Wonderful ambiance and everything was absolutely delicious!
Friendly staff greeted us. Glass wine selections and menu interesting and varied. Food well prepared- fish served very warm- right out of pan to table- unusual for restaurant fish but important. Himachi dish was fresh and excellent. Soup was spiced to perfection.
Fish entrees- Hake and Haddock both presented beautifully and well cooked with innovated accompaniments. Creme brûlée dessert was perfectly produced . Obviously a bastion for Uptown New Orleans crowd to eat and meet, but also a wonderful presentation of modern New Orleans cuisine with an Uptown twist. Worth a return visit.
Amazing food and great service!
As I have said many times, this is the hidden gem of Uptown New Orleans fine dining. It doesn't get any better than this. Gentlemen, please wear a jacket... everyone from Uptown does!
Can’t say enough about this restaurant. The food is always delicious and the service excellent. My only problem is that I live a thousand miles away and can only go there when I visit. If you are a native, this restaurant should be on your bucket list.
Excellent food, professional service. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
Best food for us in Nee Orleans secret for locals only.
Excellent as always
Considering that everyone is understaffed due to covid, they did an outstanding job. It was equal to or better than their precovid efforts!
Best French cuisine in town
This has got to be one of our most favorite places to eat in New Orleans. The food is superb!!!!
Our new favorite New Orleans restaurant. Incredible food and atmosphere.
Fantastic food & service will definitely be a stop every time in town
Was a lovely experience, service was great and food was delicious.
This place was outstanding. Took my wife and daughter here for a nice dinner and was not let down. We ordered the duck confit, baby romaine, and 2 filets Everything was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. Will definitely eat here again. 10/10
Stephani our server was very knowledgeable and fun. The food was the best we had for my week long celebration. Loved the vibe of stepping back to a classier era.
My wife and I went to Gautreau's Restaurant to celebrate her birthday. It had been years since we had been there. Both the food and service were exceptional. I would highly recommend this restaurant. It is a small, hidden gem.
Always consistently fabulous whether for special occasion or just an evening out.
Wonderful food and atmosphere! A real neighborhood gem!
Really nice hotel seems to be full of lots of locals instead of tourist which is nice. Food was super great. The signature chicken dish was very good. The duck was really good too. Had the daily special fish which was just okay. Nice wine list.
Lovely room, warm and welcoming owner. Hope to become a regular.
As long time regulars of many of New Orleans’ fine neighborhood dining establishments, we enjoy personal relationships with many owners and chefs.
Patrick is hands down the best proprietor we have in our wealth of culinary culture here.
The cuisine is consistently sublime with seemingly perfectly balance fl or profiles from top quality ingredients.
The ambiance is perfect for us, with a staff that appears when needed but never intrusive. Gautreau’s is like home to us, which is why we return so often.
Thanks again for another wonderful celebration, Patrick, and may the crowds return in full soon!!
The is the grand dame of Uptown New Orleans dining... hats off to Patrick Singley!
Nice food...Rude staff...unfriendly..hovering at the wrong time...seemed to be rushing us...I will NEVER go back. It started with an impatient staff member pushing me to shove my friend's birthday presents in a place they wouldn't fit, given the table she showed me to...I asked if we could sit at a less cramped table of a similar size and she said no...Even though there were NO OTHER DINERS in the room. I hated this expensive evening with consistently glum wait staff...Awful!
