Bistro
Located on a picturesque corner of the Vieux Carré, Meauxbar is a vibrant neighborhood gem. A typical evening finds an eclectic mix of French Quarter residents, locals from across the city, and out of town visitors. Accessible and smart, with a unique worldview, our food and beverage menus are reflected in locally-inspired, modern bistro fare by Executive Chef John Bel. Our bar program uses seasonal and local ingredients to provide fresh, unique cocktails and our carefully curated wine list pairs perfectly with dinner. Corkage Fee: $25.

It was fantastic all around - it was just a bit too loud to have an enjoyable conversation. Still highly recommend.

We loved the food as well as the charming bistro atmosphere. Our service was wonderful and it was an overall perfect evening to close our weekend in NOLA!

Meauxbar provides consistently good food in a pleasant and comfortable room. Food is consistently good, with menu changes from time to time. Service is efficient, knowledgeable about both menu & cocktails & unassumingly friendly.

We wanted a small restaurant somewhere in the French Quarter but not in the center of all the activities. This was a great choice and will go back next time we are in NOLA.

Best fish I ever had! And I eat out a lot. We are filming in New Orleans- so lots of choices of fine food. But i will go back to Meauxbar when I come back just for another chance at that fish. The right amount of butter, perfectly cooked and the almondine is plentiful, toasted and delicious. Fine waitress ( very honest) good attention, warm ambience- nothing flashy about it- just feels a bit like you are in France.

I am never disappointed. Meauxbar is fantastic. The brussel sprouts, duck, fish and pork chop were all amazing. Of course, the bar was perfection. Cocktails are art here

The food & cocktails were excellent, prepared & served with care. The highlight of the meal was a surprise- the frisée salad with Lyons style egg salad and lardons. Don’t take my word for it. And if you’re in the mood for an old standby, it is my new favorite for steak frites.

We had a wonderful meal here over the Christmas holiday. The almond crusted fish was divine. Service was great. Our only compliant was that our particular table was seated lower and right next to the bar area. There was a couple above us and it felt a bit uncomfortable. Easily fixed by being seated elsewhere next time.

The Gulf fish almondine was very good as was the duck fat popcorn and seasonal vegetables. The food was flavorful with herbs and spices and not heavy oil or excessive salt.

We dined here several times a few years back, they seemed to have slipped since, great service, drinks, noisy table nearby (no fault of theirs), appetizers were good, the entrees just OK. Overall not up to what we remembered or expected.

What happened here? The menu hasn’t been inspiring in years but now there is no talent in the kitchen. Our waitress told us that there was a company holiday party last night when she left in the middle of our meal to go, so maybe they left a skeleton crew in the kitchen but they should have just closed for the night. We sent food back that was inedible, picked at other dishes because we were hungry but they were not prepared well. As an example, the Sweetbreads were scorched, purred soup had the consistency of baby food, the chicken liver pate was bitter (soak those livers in milk overnight first) and pre-spread on toast so that it got soggy, the pork chop was a thin piece of fat (husband couldn’t find meat), and there were few things unavailable which is always disappointing. The Diningroom team was very nice but who wants to watch a manager sit at the bar on his phone and computer all night? No one in the neighborhood wants to see what used to be a good restaurant fail. We are hoping they can turn it around....

We had a reservation which is a must because the venue is not large. The location is prime for shows at the Mahalia Jackson and Saenger Theaters.
They have a Happy Hour everyday until 6 which includes discount appetizers , house wine and speciality cocktails. The menu is not large but very interesting. The food was delicious! The server was very helpful and attentive.

Nice little neighborhood bistro with pretty good food. The deviled eggs were great -as was the duck. Service was a bit off - waiter forgot part of our order. The cocktails were very good. The surrounding area was a little scruffy. Overall - pretty good.
