The atmosphere was vibrant and the server was amazing. I never had an empty glass. The wine was perfect but the food was average. The steak frites were ordered medium and they were rare. It was difficult to even cut with the steak knife. The menu is small and pricey. Very pretty presentation but not worth the $

When a place serves 1.5 eggs as “deviled eggs” it says a lot. The drinks and service were excellent but the food was honestly mediocre and the portions were absolutely stingy. Just go for drinks and you’ll have a great time.

We came here for dinner one night for a bachelorette party weekend. We. decided on this place because of the cute pink neon sign and it matched the vibe we had for the bachelorette weekend. We all wore pink dresses, too! We arrived and the menu only had maybe 5 options for an entree and they were sold out of one of the options so it didn’t take long for us to decide what we wanted. We waited a while before the server came to the table. We told our server Felipe we were ready to order our entrees when he came to order our drinks but he basically told us no we couldn’t order dinner and he was there to take our drink orders. The drinks ended up being “okay” nothing special. There was no bread or anything available or brought to the table. Then he came back to the table a while later and took our dinner order. We waited an hour and a half to get our food. 5 out of 5 of our plates were delivered and it would be another few minutes before the last plate was brought out. The food was good but nothing “out of this world” or anything like that. It was good but nothing special. Then it came time to get our checks. He brought one check. We asked if he could split it 5 ways and he said “oh well yeah I can but it would take a long time for me split it and figure it all out” and walked away. We had to get his attention to just tell him never mind that we would just pay it all on the one check and figure it out amongst ourselves. We were there for 3 hours and an hour and a half of it was waiting for our dinner plates. I mean, we liked the vibe of the restaurant but was disappointed in the food and the service. For the price of the dinner we expected better.

We enjoyed our meal at Justine. The ambiance is incredible and the service was fantastic. We enjoyed our meal, but it was lacking a little something… the fish was a little dry for our taste. Doesn’t change my high recommendation of this fine restaurant. I would suggest they add a couple more entree options to the dinner menu.

Food and drinks are solid—8-9/10. Service was mediocre at best. Our server was mostly absent. We didn’t do another round of drinks because we made our way through the entire meal before we saw him again. What made it worse was the menu pricing and the actual cost of food are inconsistent.Not okay. It’s a beautiful space and the ambiance is quite nice, but the lack of attentiveness and

Justine is a perfect meal in New Orleans. Fun decor + ambiance, and a delicious French menu. I ordered the burger with an egg on top and a side salad. Very pleased with everything. Great way to end a friends weekend in New Orleans!

Great atmosphere. Good food, but salty. Specifically the seasonal vegetables and mushrooms in the gnocchi. Service was good. Striped bass and burger exceptional. Like most high ends, high prices, small portions, but adequate.

We enjoyed our dinner at Justine -- cocktails were a standout -- and we'd go back again. Atmosphere was great -- they nail the French bistro vibe -- food was good and service was fine. For the price, even tho we paid a premium for location in the Quarter, I'd have expected the food to be a bit better.

Our meals were good, not great but good: appetizer shrimp n grits was tasty; fish n chips was good, not greasy but also fairly boring. Steak frites also good but chefs didn't get temp right -- medium rare is not the same as rare. all in all, meal was good, drinks very good, and service was good, tho it came with a little attitude.

Loved the restaurant, lots of cocktail choices and wines by the glass or bottle. Our server went over the menu and pointed to the favorite foods. We split a Salad Msison with walnuts that was delicious. I had grilled snapper with leeks and potato perfectly cooked and my husband had steak fries (hanger steak) and the fries were hot and crispy. Wonderful night.
