We were looking forward to dining here, but ended up very disappointed. My wife specifically booked at Justine because the menu on OpenTable said they served french onion soup and lobster bisque. They offered neither. We ordered the goat cheese and baguette as an appetizer, but it tasted more like a glorified onion dip and the baguette was not nearly enough bread to enjoy the entire dish. The only thing I enjoyed was the drink I ordered. Although there may have been other good items on the menu, we had expectations that were not met from the moment we sat down. If you are going to dine here be aware that posted menu is not the same as the menu they are actually serving.

The food was absolutely amazing! Everything we ordered was beautifully presented and had such vibrant flavor. I highly recommend the steak tartare, duck, and the short rib! Our waiter was so kind and the hostess picked the best spot for my 23rd birthday. Thank you Justine for making my birthday so special!!

the space's interior design was as tantalizing as the food. the bartender/mixologist was able to accommodate my allergy to modify a specialty cocktail from their menu and it turned out even better than i imagined. i will def be back when i return to new orleans.

One of our go to places in New Orleans. We meet our daughter and any of her friends there. Cool enough for the younger set, classy enough for us older folks. Very professional staff that made sure we had the experience we desired. Definitely recommended.

Impeccable environment, amazingly appointed. The decor outshined the food. But the cocktails were amazing.

I will definitely go there again, my hope was that it was just an off season day.

The food and service were great. The ambiance of the restaurant was super. The only reason I gave this four stars instead of five was the loud background music which was obnoxious to say the least. They did respond by turning it down, but the the loudness and choice of music for such a fine restaurant hurt the esperience.

This was my fourth visit. We had the crabmeat appetizer, satsuma salad, and Bloody Mary shrimp cocktail to start. They were good but not great. We followed with the crab cakes Benedict and fried chicken sandwich ( I wasn’t a fan). I gave the food a 3 out of 5. I did, and always have received 5 star service from their marvelous staff. Bryce was friendly and attentive and let us take our time. Then there’s the most fabulous maitre’ d in all of New Orleans: Robby. He really makes the guests feel at home and you can tell genuinely loves his job. He’s constantly running around helping backup his staff but somehow makes time to check in on every single table. The staff and atmosphere are what keeps us coming back.

Justine is a contemporary brasserie a la Francaise: courteous and friendly service. If anything, the menu is limited with no fish dishes for example, there were however bouillabaisse.

Fun delicious FQ restaurant. We sat in the front with the doors open to Charters Street and I loved the ambiance. Cocktails were delicious, food was great. Burger and “au poivre” sauce was a great combination. The decor is funky and eclectic and the servers were knowledgeable, friendly and made for an excellent overall dinner.
