It was wonderful. We were not rushed, meeting up with family that was in town. Everyone was very attentive and the food was delicious.

Waiter was drunk or high. Gnocchi was like mush and the noise from open doors and windows was not tolerable to have a conversation.

The food was amazing. I recommend the pork belly. The service was wonderful. The menu is very limited, so if you plan on dining at this restaurant, check the menu first and make sure you are comfortable with the limited selections.

We have been to Justine several times pre Covid. We were a little disappointed in the brunch menu. Overall menus to be honest.
We opted not to have dinner as they removed all our favorite menu items.
The service was average, and the coffee not terribly hot, and they only could provide milk, no cream. This was a bit surprising as I feel like any French ( or regular) restaurant should have cream in their kitchen .

The atmosphere at Justine is unmatched for brunch in New Orleans, although the DJ’s taste can be a little eclectic. I live here and feel comfortable saying that while not traditional, like Justine in general, the shrimp and grits are the best in the city. The service can be slow and the value for money isn’t phenomenal, but if you’re prepared for that you’ll have a great experience

Friend and I had early dinner there. Our server John was impeccable, and restaurant called to confirm 2 days beforehand! Feel of a true parisien bistro, nice touch. Had escargot with individual pastry toppings, but not much taste to escargot itself. Followed up with steak/frites, flank steak was good (a wee bit too charred) but poivre sauce a bit too salty, frites were good (I’d prefer a touch crispier). Finished with vanilla crème brûlée (good but a bit too sweet). Kir cocktail was good. Loved the music and ambiance. Would go again as enjoyable, but my expectations were higher than actual experience.

Food was all excellent, but it took an awful long time to receive our entrees. The server was very nice and apologetic, and ultimately offered free dessert, but there must have been some sort of issue with the kitchen, as the restaurant was only 25% full. Beautiful space, and food was all very good (pork belly and shrimp apps, and hangar steak frites were highlights), and we’d give it another try.

I used to frequent Justines. After last night I know why I decide not to any longer. The waiter was rude and miserable. We were seated in the outside patio for a birthday celebration with 6 adults. There were many booths available especially more distance apart from other tables. We were seated with no table space in between 4 other tables in the patio. Im so disappointed as the group of people had never been to the restaurant and I thought it would be a fabulous idea.

On the wine list there was a 2001 Sauvignon Blanc. When questioned about its value ($85) we were told that it was good. We ordered it and it turned out to be well past its shelf life. That is a major faux pas for a restaurant that weeks top recognition.

We had a reservation for a birthday lunch which was not acknowledged. The ac vent blew dust all over us and our food we had to change tables. The vent was filthy. Manager never said a word. We felt an apology of some sort would have been the least he could of done.

A great restaurant. Good meal, but caught them at the end of brunch shift so burnt toast and no milk for coffee. Really? Yes. Oh well Lol. We’ll give them a break after what for sure was a long busy Homecoming weekend at Tulane… would always recommend here.

One of my absolute favorites! Never fails to be an awesome experience & fantastic food. Got the steak frites & it was incredible!! Chris was our waiter and he was the best! So friendly & personable!
We did get the brownie to split & didn’t care for it much. It was cold, & would have probably been much better warmed. We didn’t really eat it. I’d skip that next time & go for the crème brûlée!
Highly recommend Justine’s!
