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, Justine will begin with dinner service & add lunch service in mid-February. 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.

Justine is a MUST in NOLA. The food was amazing and the drinks were top notch. It was fun, yet private, and our server was so knowledgeable and her recommendations were perfect. I cannot say enough about this place. I’ll be back over and over again.

Excellent service and great atmosphere, I have to say though that I was a bit disappointed in the food. The French onion soup and the cocktails were the best part of the meal. The duck confit salad was not at all what I had hoped for. I’m used to duck confit coming with the little bone that the meat just falls right off of, which to me is the sign of perfectly cooked duck confit. This salad had a very small amount of pulled meat that was just not very exciting or flavorful and on top of a bed of bitter radicchio, just didn’t make sense to me. The burger was the worst part and I did have to speak up about it, it was under cooked, I asked for medium and it came out rare, and it was so over salted I couldn’t even eat it. I was very kindly comped for it and they offered a new burger but I was turned off. The kitchen did send out a new order of fries. The staff was most attentive and friendly and no questions were asked about my complaint and I wasn’t even asking to be comped, they just did it. I think I will go back for drinks because the place is very fun and beautiful, the food needs a little help.

We had a great time. The food was good. Our hostess was great and friendly. Service was touch and go. Really great and accommodating, but then we didn’t get the friendliest vibe from our server from time to time. 🤷🏻‍♀️ All good though. Thank you for a fun night with family :)

I loved the atmosphere and the interior design, the cocktails, the wine list, everything was so chic and elegant and the music was all Sade (who I love!). It was wonderful and I will be back again for sure!!!

This is a lovely spot! The food was a bit hit or miss. Nothing truly outstanding but nothing particularly bad either. They featured Veuve Cliquot Rosé by the bottle which is a favorite of mine, but the bottle had not been chilled when it was served. The sommelier took the bottle and quickly chilled it by hand in a bucket of ice water and it was fine after that. The decor is really fun and the ambience can’t be beat. It’s a solid place, but probably not in my top 10 in this price range. Maybe in the top 20, though which isn’t bad considering how many awesome restaurants there are. It’s definitely a place I’d recommend giving a try!

It was an anniversary dinner.
They seated us all the way in the back... really bright lit room and in the middle of a 40 year old birthday party table full of drunk women. Def not romantic .
Also the steak wasn’t “steak”.
It was a sirloin... over cooked, tasted like packet of gravy poured on top. I just wasn’t impressed.

The restaurant was beautiful and the food was good. But we waited an hour before our first course was served. It didn’t seem too busy and our waiter, while super pleasant, was not very attentive.

I would love to give Justine more stars but to survive in the French Quarter you have to have more than cute decor! You have to have good food and Justine simply missed the mark. My fiance had the burger and I had a pork loin. Both were underwhelming.

This place is adorable, and the staff was friendly, but that’s about it. The food was terribly disappointing. We got two apps and two entrees and we didn’t enjoy any of it. There are much much better dinner options in the city.

I delicious dinner at Justines. Short rib starter was excellent - tender with a very tasty sauce. The pork chop was moist and cooked perfectly. The shrimp were plump and juicy. Service was exemplary. We sat on the patio. We felt safe - masks worn at all times. An excellent dinner experience.

The Maitres D was clearly annoyed that we were late for dinner. It was 6:00and I thought it was for 6.:30. We did text that we were in route. Poor attention on my part. However, it was my birthday, it was Monday and the place was empty.
The service was great, good menu knowledge, prompt delivery and regular check backs. Professional and fun.
The food was lacking. The garden oysters were flavorless fried balls with Buffalo sauce and the squash was so spicy, I was unable to eat it. The salad and chicken were better but not anything to write home about. I felt the menu was using a lots of French language to sound spruce flat items.
Not overly priced, clean and fun atmosphere. Over all, it was enjoyable. We would return again when the Covid has passed for more of a fun night vs a gastronomic evening. In Justines defense, we did have dinner at Revolution the night before, which is a tough act to follow.
The restaurant looks fun and artsy and would likely be a great place when they aren’t crippled by a pandemic and it’s limitations. Like I mentioned before, I would come back. I’m sure it’s nearly impossible for these places right now and it’s important to support them during this time so we don’t loose them.

Memorable!!! I went there to NOLA to celebrate my birthday with my husband. We made dinner reservations at Justine for 8:45 pm but the hostess was super kind and made the necessary arrangements to take us earlier. From the moment we arrived to the time we left, we were mesmerized by the outstanding service of the whole staff. Robbi Robinson came to our table to ensure everything was going well and OMG, he has a vibrant personality that makes you feel that you went to have dinner at your best friend’s house that happens to be a celebrity chef. This takes me to the next topic, the food is amazing! By far the best meal we had in NOLA and the best dinner we have had in 2020. We had for appetizers the stake tartar and the squash, both just in point and the perfect balance in flavors. Our main courses were Pork Loin and the Shrimp. We could not be happier with our choices, both were full of flavors and seasoned to perfection. Finally the decor is extraordinary, elegant but not overwhelming, chic and trendy, this restaurant is a true gem and I am more than happy to have had celebrated by birthday there!! Thank you Justine, I only hope that my comments make justice to an extraordinary experience!
