Way different than the last time I was here. Frites were soggy. Sweetbreads were ok but compared to last time they were a big disappointment. I liked the smoked fish roulade but my companion said it had no taste. Literally waited half an hour for entrees, no explanation, no apology, just a waiter that avoided eye contact. I wasn't asked how I wanted my duck cooked, it came out medium well, surprisingly it was still moist. I like my duck rare to medium rare, not that they care obviously. Companion's gnocchi were more like polenta dumplings, dense and grainy, but the sauce was great.

I guess it was an off night for them but it was my only night out in awhile so it left a bad taste in my mouth. Doubt I'll return.

All I can say is wow, well done. Who would have thought deviled eggs we could taste that good. The pork belly was perfect. Great happy hour prices on booze and food, who doesn’t love that. I cannot wait to be back in New Orleans to try more items from the menu!

We loved the restaurant and the food was delicious! Our waitress was quite rude and not attentive at all. We ended up chatting with another waiter on food recommendations.

Meauxbar is consistently good. The fish almandine, a staple on the menu, is superb. This visit the fish was black drum. We always have the calamari. On our recent visit it was curried. Quite delicious!! Meauxbar has an excellent wine list for a small bistro. Delightful ambiance. Cozy and conducive to conversation. Attentive service. I recommend Meauxbar.

Brunch options were amazing and delicious. Interesting takes on popular dishes, top notch service, and not so touristy more of a local kind of place. I will definitely go back here when I am back!

Meauxbar is my favorite restaurant in New Orleans. I’ve lived here for over two years now and these guys are just Awesome!
The service is casual, warm and knowledgeable. They’re eager to offer suggestions, favorites and are thorough in their descriptions. The atmosphere is, again, casual but chic. Kind of like a time warp smash up of old and new. Deep colors, perfect lighting and an artsy vibe make me feel both at home and expectant. Meauxbar is small so make a reservation!
This is the first time I’ve gone to Brunch. I decided to phone it in with my cravings for fried eggs and bacon, but, was delighted, yet again, to get the best damn (breakfast) food I’ve had in NOLA to date! Yay!
Go anytime, but, I recommend a dinner date on Friday, Saturday or Sunday and their Fish Amandine is life changing! An absolute must!
This place serves up Happiness!!!

Wonderful neighborhood restaurant away from the hustle of Bourbon Street. The escargot is to die for and the service was absolutely top notch. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone seeking great foodie food in an area untouched be the usual touristy NOLA.

Solid food even with limited menu. Their appetizers are rather expensive for what you get. Most ranged $15-$17 and didn’t equate to much food. Good cocktail and wine menus. Overall good experience just a bit over priced.

Nice take on basics such as the pate, escargot, and flank steak, the latter was very tender despite being under the ordered temperature. Frites were perfect. Well done all around.

Food was outstanding. We had the steak tartar and snails. Yum!!
Service could not have been better. She was attentive and engaging.
My only ding is the noise level. The music is waaaay too high. Very hard to hear people at my own table.
Mgnt can easily fix that.

Had the beef tartare and escargot for appetizers. The beef tartare was a bit on the oily side. The escargot was amazing. Funny, but it was better when we switched the chips to eat with the escargot and the bread with the tartare. Had the grilled lamb and french onion grilled cheese for the main course. The grilled lamb was disappointing, with the veggies being under seasoned and the lamb over seasoned and in various states of cooking (some were really overcooked). The grilled cheese was amazing! I will definitely order that again. Finished with the chocolate tarte and the mousse. Both were amazing.

Meauxbar is a favorite of ours. The food is bistro-style and healthy; always with delicious fresh vegetable dishes. The waitstaff and bartenders are kind and fun. The wine list is well-curated. Meauxbar is an intimate jewel in the French Quarter.

This was my second visit and I really like the place, however, their wines-by-the glass are pretty substandard and could use some revision (in fairness, I only had two whites and no reds. There were 3 other whites I didn't try).

All else was excellent.

Meauxbar is consistently delicious and the service is always top notch. The food is really upscale (but it’s not overpriced and portions aren’t small). Highly recommend to locals and tourists alike.

I do not often get to eat at fancy restaurants. My dietary restrictions prohibit eating most items on menus. The staff at Meauxbar however make me feel like I am valued rather than obnoxious. The meal I had fit my parameters such that I didn’t get sick and was also one of the best meals I have ever had. Curry soup with pea salad and zucchini, broccoli, okra and chickpeas with cashew cheese. Omg I’m in heaven! I cannot thank Meauxbar enough for meeting me where I am at and treating me so respectfully. I love Meauxbar!
