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.

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.

Over priced and VERY limited menu. Disappointed for sure. A piece of cut up hanger steak and fries for $35 was crazy. Waiter was very bored but attentive (Rene)

I’m not sure if menu changed post Covid but very limited choices. We each ordered a burger. Mine was over cooked and sent back and redo was flavorless and dry. Had to pay for 2 pieces of bread while waiting for our food. I was so disappointed in it all. Would not go back

We went for my wifes birthday with another couple food, service, restaurant were all excellent. The menu is limited, but each item (we had several between the 4 of us) was excellent. It is costly, so be aware. Only negative is that I had noted it was my wife's birthday when making the reservation. We were having fun and we left the restaurant before I realized that they never commented on her birthday (wasn't looking for an Applebee's type sing a long, but a congratulations from the waiter would have been nice). Besides that great time and we would go back.

Upon entering, I was greeted warmly by hosts. Waiter was very tentative. He explained the entire menu in detail and offered suggestions. Music was amazing, ambiance was very cool! I had escargot that was delicious! My cod was amazing! We ordered Creme Brûlée that was amazing and I had an expression martini. It was our anniversary and this place lived up to our expectations!

We sat in the back patio area which is perfect for conversation and our server (Savanah) treated us like we were her only table (we weren't and she seemed to treat the others equally wonderfully). The food was lovely and each one of us thought the others out-ordered us. Cannot wait to go back.

The first time we dined here it was so loud we could not have a conversation at our own table. It was awful and we said we would never go back. But we gave it another chance. This time it was sad, there were only 5 Entrees offered: a hamburger, hangar steak, baked chicken quarter, and 2 fish dishes. The 2 fish dishes were Cod and Fluke, both fish from the northeast so I'm sure they were frozen. We almost always order seafood dishes when we dine out so we were very disappointed in these selections. They said that there was no seafood available since hurricane Ida yet other restaurants in NOLA and in Baton Rouge have seafood dishes. We ordered the hangar steak and the baked chicken, both dishes were definitely not impressive. On the good side, the service was great.

The restaurant was nice the service was great but the food was disappointing. Very limited menu, drinks were OK and all the food was too salty. I would pass on this one unless your looking for a trendy place to hang out. Definitely better choices for dinner in NOLA.

The atmosphere and decor were great, the waitstaff was extremely attentive and friendly and the drinks were strong! The happy hour deal was good too, luckily we got there right when Justine opened. My only complaint is that the food was over salted. Otherwise, it tasted good but it was difficult to eat the burger with the sauce and the fries, and the greens that came with the chicken confit were difficult to finish. It’s possible we came on a bad day, but I won’t be going back unless I know this won’t be an issue.

We had read about Justine. The atmosphere was lovely, and had a comfortable elegance about the place. The menu had excellent choices, even satisfying my husband who sometimes is a challenge! I would describe it as French casual. Our waitress was very attentive. We loved Justine, 5 stars all the way!!

Nice dinner - a little warm in there and some flies with the door open so the nonvaccinated to eat in a separate section. With that changed it would have been perfect! Lovely conversation with the manager.

The food was very good. We had the goat cheese appetizer, the French Onion soup, and then I got the Fish of the Day (Halibut), and to top it off, we shared the creme brulee. Everything was delicious! I have a gluten allergy, and I was very pleased with the options and the knowledge of the waiter in helping me select my meal. So excited I could eat the french onion soup! The vibe was really cool - they played good music, and the interior decor was very fun and interesting.

Justine has a great ambience and excellent service. However, the food is very expensive and the portions are quite small. Our bill for 2 people was over $100 without alcoholic beverages and we were still hungry. We greatly enjoyed the pimento cheese and BBQ shrimp appetizers. The bruschetta, pork belly and Parisian gnocchi were rather bland though.

I had been wanting to go to this restaurant for months, I finally got the chance to go last night. Wonderful place, good vibe..we were with another couple NS we enjoyed ourselves. Our only issue was with our server Meghan, she was simply unpleasant and just carried a negative energy that we all felt. We would ask her something and we would get a strange look, she just wasn’t very friendly. Other than that experience the food was good, although portions are way too small I would likely go again.

What a terrific decision to choose to dine here. Every aspect of our evening was perfect. The restaurant has an eclectic feel that manages to be glamorous and cozy at the same time. The staff could not have been friendlier or more accommodating. We had escargot, steak frites, and a peach cobbler for two with cream cheese ice cream. Every item we ordered was fabulous. It all added up to a magical date night and a memorable experience. We'd give them 10 stars if we could.
