Contemporary American
Taking its name from the first Opera performed in
New Orleans in 1796 just blocks away from our address, Sylvain occupies a truly unique space at 625 Chartres Street adjacent to Jackson Square. This majestic building and location presents a feeling of history and palpable excitement to the city’s nightlife scene while celebrating that for which New Orleans has always been revered.
Our menu is purposefully designed to offer a mix of bistro classics elevated to the style of refined cuisine. From hand-rolled pastas to slow-braised, pork and game, to burgers ground daily by hand with the choicest cuts of meat, Sylvain’s menu, like the decor, feels at once familiar and brand new. Most importantly to us, though, is that guests will experience many of our Chef’s and Sous Chef’s fondest life experiences with food in the menu items and the daily features created for the guests’ enjoyment.

    Have here mostly for lunch and had a GREAT enjoyable meal, but This past Sunday night was a nightmare. Had early reservation (545 booked on open table) The music was so loud and pounding out heavy metal music which is not my type of music or enjoyable music to have a meal by. I witnessed two separate couples seated then get up and leave (which I wish I had done and assume was the music). My food was good, but at the end, I had a $20.00 coupon from open table which applies to a booking you book. The waiter came back and told me he was going to apply it this time but the manager said they would not accept again. WHY TELL ME!!!! IF YOU DONT WANT TO BE A PART OF OPEN TABLE THEN GET OFF IT!!!!!

    We now live in NC but we used to live in MS and would frequent NOLA often. Sylvain was always one of our favorite spots. 3 years later, it did not disappoint. Incredible service and ambiance. Food was out of this world, definitely recommend to anyone.

    Food was good. Service was quite perfunctory. Like they didn’t have time for us. I had indicated it was my birthday and nothing happened. Disappointing.

    Sunday lunch was great! Morgan was our server and she took great care of us. Offered great suggestions without being pushy. It was a great afternoon for outside dining. The food was excellent. The cocktails were great. The desserts were outstanding. I loved my chocolate pot a creme.

    Always good. And we appreciate that it’s only a few steps away from Le Petite Theatre for post theatre late night dining.

    Food was amazing. The mood of the restaurant was romantic with the candle light. The only drawback was the music. It was too loud for conversation and wasn't good.

    Thank you so much for your review. Sorry you didn't enjoy the music or volume level. We offer courtyard seating as well for a more subdued experience.
