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.

Wanted to try this new spot. Lovely inside space although sat in the front section which took away from the experience. The martini ordered was 1/2 full and the hamburger although ordered as medium - came well done. French fries were cold. Management and wait staff were pleasant and they did remove the martini from my bill. Coming from out of town and if I do return would only sit inside to experience the beautiful decor.

Great lunch spot. We will come back for dinner. There was a C DJ so the experience was a little loud, but I’d guess it’s normally quieter.

I have always loved Justines! I love the ambience and usually I enjoy the food. But last night I had the fish and chips and the fish was so mushy! It wasn’t flaky and thick it was greasy and there was a lot of breading. Our fries were over cooked. It just wasn’t a good Colaneri experience at all. We will go back because we know it has been better. And everyone deserves a second chance.

The atmosphere, food & service were phenomenal. We had a wonderful time! We started with whipped goat cheese, order it! Steak frites, melt in your mouth, as was the chicken confit. Nothing but good things to say about this restaurant!

Went for brunch. It was delicious. Brûléed banana bread, Fish and Chips, and the stuffed croissant. Sat out front and needed a bit more air conditioning. Looking forward to going back for the dinner menu.

We dined late in the evening ... upon our arrival we were seated by the hostess that was not exactly welcoming ... but I brushed this aside and was looking forward to the dining experience ... the service was good but rushed ... I understand that we were dining at the most available slot but we were charged the same price as a guest that would be dining at the beginning of the evening ... the food was not worth the price .... I ordered the chicken which was very chewy ... the best part was the risotto that came with it and it was not all that great ... we did have a strawberry shortcake mousse for dessert that was the best part of the entire meal .... I enjoyed the music in the restaurant and this was a plus

Wonderful atmosphere. Great staff. Paula, Asha & the Maitre’d were all very nice. The manager was as well. The redfish was over cooked & dry. The crab Mac was burnt & the short rib was a little dry as well. Not terrible, just not quite right, but we did enjoy ourselves.

AMAZING. Already cannot wait to go back. The crab and brie dip was to die for, and the tuna special we had was so good we ordered it twice. The whipped goat cheese was so delicious i could've easily eaten a gallon of it. The cocktails were also beautifully made and were so delicious. Will definitely be back, and soon!

Absolutely fantastic meal. We could not find fault in any part of the evening. Our waiter, John, was great. For an appetizer my husband and I shared an onion soup and a baguette. The entrees for both of us had Steak Frites, cooked medium. Dessert was Creme Brûlée and Mocha Pots De Creme. We have had many meals as good, never better. Would go back hand down. Thank you for a wonderful meal and evening.

The food was okay. It wasn’t awesome but it wasn’t bad. We ordered a really nice bottle of wine and waited about 20 minutes to come out which was sort of disappointing. But we feel like service everywhere is lacking at this time due to restaurants not being able to find employees due to the pandemic.

We had a resveration yet they told us we could sit at the bar or outside. So we sat at a table outside it was hot, humid, and stinky. I’m from Louisiana so I’m familiar with the weather. However, we paid too much money not to be cool and stinky free. Our service was excellent. The food was ok. The onion soup was delicious. The pork chop was fried and greasy. It tasted like a chicken fried steak. The sauce was ok. This dish was 30 dollars and not worth it. I thought it would be a beautiful bone in pork chop. Overall not impressed.

Beautifully designed exterior and interior. Food menu is not full of much variety but some good choices. Steak n frites was perfect. The burrata app was delicious however cones without bread or accompaniment so you have to purchase bread separately. Never heard of that before. The room itself was so loud it was hard to talk or listen. When asking questions about the menu or food. Our waitress was less than enthusiastic. Just that’s that. All in all it was a place to be experienced but not at the top of my list.

Fish and chip were battered too much. Sent it back & git delicious fish. Escargot were outstanding. Steak not cooked properly. Sent back 2 times. Sous chef was belligerent to the staff about the food being sent back. I would have fired him. The poor staff are afraid of him.

First, the food was as advertised... outstanding! Our servers were also terrific. They were engaging and very attentive. However, the vibe at the place was tainted by the host (Mr. Bow Tie). He was rude to guests and gave us the impression that we were not particularly welcomed. We made the reservation well in advance, but were not seated in the dining room. It almost appeared that Mr. Bow Tie was “deciding” who was in and who was out. We were clearly out. We also saw him rudely dismiss another couple who asked to be seated at a different table that appeared to be similar to the table he offered them. The couple left and the table they requested remained open for quite sometime. Just a very off putting feel, that tainted an otherwise nice dinner.

We visited Justine for a bachelorette party and had 7 guests. We had reservations and the table was ready and great for our group. We enjoyed wine and several small plates, entrees, and desserts. Our server was slightly awkward through the service, but still did a good job. We were disappointed in seeing the menu options had been limited, but the food we ate was very good. The onion soup was amazing and overall winner...so good! The whipped goat cheese was also excellent and the baked crab and brie was good. The side of mushroom and crawfish mac & cheese were just ok. For entrees we had a pan roasted grouper (decent), justine burger (good), steak frites (excellent), and pork chop schnitzel (excellent). The goat cheese tarte was amazing and served with a strawberry sorbet. The orange blossom creme brulee was also good. We also loved the Carte Noir coffee dessert drink. What we loved the most was how beautiful the restaurant was and the ambience was perfect for a girl's night out.
