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.

Our dinners were so unremarkable for anywhere, but especially for New Orleans. We were disappointed given all the glowing reviews.

Our server was fantastic. The staff was attentive and the food was great. It took a little bit of time to get the food out of the kitchen, but when it got out to the table, it was worth the wait.

I recommend this place for a good date night or special occasion.

I took my son and his wife and my nephew when I was visiting New Orleans. We were seated in the back room with the fabulous murals - one of New Orleans and the other of Paris! Fabulous setting, delicious food, excellent waiter who was spot on with the wine and food suggestions for me. Can’t wait to go back again.

Fantastic east coast oysters and seafood dishes. To die for bread service. Service both friendly and attentive from the hostess to the server and sommelier to the back waiters. Fun people watching and sophisticated hopping place in the French Quarter.

Our server and drinks were great but that's about it. Everyone that worked there seemed to hate their job and hate that we were their customers. Our server was nice but she disappeared for such long periods of time we couldn't grab her for anything we needed. A friend and I ordered the Pork Belly and Salads with fish on it and it was disappointing. Very cute place but we'd never go back.

The food here is absolutely exquisite! I recommend trying the pork belly and steak tartare. We were a large party and they were gracious enough to accommodate us despite the last minute additions to our group. The decor is out of this world, so beautiful! Highly recommend!

Felt very welcome, from the hostess station to the table.

The atmosphere/ambiance was perfect for my friend's birthday lunch celebration. The fois gras, and duck confit were better than I expected, and the vanilla ice cream with a candle ended the lunch with a sparkle.

Already planning my next reservation!

This is the Fifth time we dined here and food was the usual wonderful, but we were not impressed with our waiter. He was not as attentive as the waitstaff we are accustomed to. Maybe it was because our friend Robbie was not there!

Good food but overpriced. Atmosphere was lively when we arrived but cleared out by 10pm. Service on point but they had ran out of the Tuesday Special (lamb shank) which was disappointing as that is what I wanted to order. The Moroccan short rib was an excellent as a replacement though.

Justine was good, but so loud, you couldn’t hear each other very well. We sat in the front and it was a first time visit, so not sure if the noise factor is better in the back of the very lively restaurant. Although we chose to linger a bit before ordering, our 8:15 arrival still had us leaving at 11. I’d give it another try...

Really good French bistro, and I don’t mean Cajun French like most New Orleans French restaurants! If the lights would have been just a bit dimmer...it could have been in Paris!

This was my second trip to Justine but the first time I had been for brunch. Generally our party was pleased with the food but we all agreed that our server was rude. As a local, I find most upscale New Orleans restaurants are accommodating with food allergies but when one member of our party asked for the omelette to be made without shrimp, our server acted like it was a horrible imposition. This was after we sat down and I spoke to him saying it was our first visit for brunch, hoping he might make some suggestions, but instead, he did not acknowledge that I even spoke. When another member of our party was served coffee, a great deal of it it had splashed out onto the saucer prior to it being placed on the table. No assistance was offered to get a napkin to blot up the excess that was dripping everywhere. I’d like to add that we had the first reservation time and the restaurant wasn’t busy. I had the pain perdu which was good but I found the brunch menu very limited. They do offer the full dinner menu and I suggest ordering from it as the selection is much better.
