Justin & Mia Devillier, owners and operators of La Petite Grocery & Balise Tavern, introduce their 3rd restaurant, Justine. Combining the sophistication of Parisian brasseries with the playfulness of the South’s most lively district, New Orleans’ French Quarter. True to the heart of French brasserie culture, the bustling, multi-roomed restaurant offers a versatile space to be enjoyed by all, whether it’s for a weekday lunch, afternoon glass of wine, or celebratory dinner. The kitchen is led by Chef & Owner Justin Devillier. The menu showcases classic French technique: Soupe à l'Oignon Gratinée blistered & bubbly, with gruyere & ementhaller; Raclette melts a blanket of cheese over potatoes, Parisian ham & cornichons. Justine's many beef offerings pay homage to the French boucherie.

                                      Everything was on point. Perfection. The only issue I had was the volume and choice of music. Incongruous to atmosphere and menu. I’d love to see a change in their music selection. Club music blaring didn’t match the menu or quality of food.

                                      It is amazing. I loved the french toast bites appetizer. I also love the mimosa service. Mrs. Paula was great. It took a while for our check but otherwise everything was amazing.

                                      I would move to New Orleans just to be able to eat brunch here every weekend. From the first step in, I was in love! The people were welcoming and fun, the vibe was cool and relaxed and the food, oh my gosh, the food was unbelievable! Run to Justine and be sure to get the bread pudding French toast!

                                      We couldn’t get a resy before 9pm but when we walked in there were a ton of open tables. Service was terrible and it just felt very rushed and not quality. I think our first drink took 20-minutes to receive after waiting for a server to even come over and greet us. We were super disappointed.

                                      This is a very good restaurant. The food was very good. The service was very attentive. The drink prices are sorta typical. Maybe a bit overpriced. I’m not a big drink so it really did affect me much. I would certainly go back.

                                      Don’t waste your money! Goat cheese with crudités appetizer was inedible. Raw root veggies impossible to chew. I complained about it and nothing was done. We were charged the full price. Menu entree selections were scant. Hardly anything to choose from. Waiter never mentioned there were Happy Hour options. Total disappointment.

                                      We dropped in here for a more upscale French Quarter experience as we had been exploring the area all day. The room is a mix of warm and chic, the staff welcoming. The food is solid. The chef accommodated a vegetarian entree that had a beautiful mix of ingredients and was overly salty. We made mention of this, and the server and manager responded graciously. I would visit again and definitely recommend for a fun, elegant date night.

                                      HORRIBLE service and sub par food. I am shocked about how this once super popular FQ restaurant has sunken. The decor is still cute, so if you’re out and just want a glass of wine and a nice insta pic, that would work. But do not think you’re going to get a great meal, and the one you do will take an insanely long time to come. Highlights include: my guests fork being taken out of her hand WHILE she was still eating, no offer of a second round of cocktails, lukewarm water that was never refilled by the server, and, a bill for $175 for 4 people. That’s a typical bill at a GOOD nola restaurant. This is garbage. Just stick with Brennan’s where at least everything is predictably OK.

                                      50th birthday dinner/Mother’s Day. Food was very good. Background music was fantastic. Steamed muscles are fantastic - would recommend as an appetizer/shared for the table. We had 7 people. Varied wine list but on the higher price side.

                                      More hype than substance. Service was really indifferent/inattentive. Food was fine but nothing special enough to overcome the other deficiencies.

                                      We arrived at the restaurant right at 5p, just in time for our reservation to discover that the doors were still locked. They did not open until 5:06p even when I called. That was disappointing and unprofessional. Despite the business casual attire dress code on OpenTable’s website, the hostess wore a white spaghetti strap, ripped jeans and black combat boots. I thought the restaurant had a dress code? The food portions were small unlike the prices and I couldn’t switch out the collard greens (I don’t like collard greens) when I contemplated ordering the fish on the market. Heather was a knowledgeable and attentive server, however, we do not plan on returning.

                                      The debris was so flavorful and the French toast was SO good. Higy recommend those two dishes. We had bottle service mimosas for brunch and it came with a great presentation of fruit slices and juice. I loveeee the decor here. So many wonderful details to look at- no expense was spared when designing this place. The host was fabulous. The kitchen had food runners and seemed like a well oiled machine . My only complaint was that our server could of checked on us more. We mostly poured our own water and champagne the whole time. She didn’t seem to have many tables and would walk past our table without filling glasses or asking us if we needed anything . We would flag her down to get what we needed. Not necessarily bad, but not great. I think a restaurant that is well staffed like theirs does so to make sure the waiter/waitress has enough time to give you top notch, finer details of service. This was our second time at this restaurant. The first time we came we didn’t have as much time with the server becuse it was much busier- and I didn’t expect the person to have the time to give extra details of service.

                                      Justine was a perfectly Instagrammable spot for a bachelorette party! Although the menu is very selective, the manager (sadly who's name I did not catch) did a fabulous job of #1 looking fabulous and #2 offering help and answering questions that we had. The cocktails were delicious and interesting. I got lucky and one of the special that evening was frog legs. The bread cheese is delicious. I highly recommend the french fries and brussel sprouts. The waiter seemed a bit out of it, but overall the service was great!

                                      Over priced for very small portion. There are much better places nearby.
