Service and food were great but restaurant is a too dark. Be warned, cocktails are are served in deceiving small glasses, but are potent!
Went to Sylvain for a joint birthday and Valentine’s day date with my boyfriend. We enjoyed wonderful cocktails and appetizers and wine with our entrees. The ambiance was perfect. While at first we had the impression the waitstaff was trying to rush us through our evening, they paced everything out well and let us enjoy an after-dinner digestif without feeling hurried. The only downside was that they ran out of the market fish early into the evening as well as one of the other entrees, so be aware of this when timing your reservation.
Always a great meal and wonderful atmosphere, even more so on Mardi Gras day! Thanks for being open and letting us hang there on the Fat.
Everything was perfect - waitress made accommodations for a food allergy and we had a blast.
One of the best lunch spots in Nola
Best meal and dining experience in NOLA this trip.
Enjoyed the atmosphere and food - casual fine dining with excellent cocktails- would definitely return
A typical laid back French Quarter eatery. Good, but nothing special. Maybe a B grade.
Made reservations on line so easy. Biscuit and gravy were awesome. Chicken was excellent and crispy pork shoulder on grits were to die for. We will definitely go there again and recommend to all my friends. Service was excellent and friendly. Great job. Jason was our server.
We were seated immediately, despite being nearly 30 mins late for our reservation (we got stuck behind Mardi Gras floats crossing the Crescent City bridge). The food, cocktails, ambiance, and service were all stellar, as usual. This is one of our favorite dining spots in New Orleans.
Very different and interstellar menu. Meal was outstanding
Ate a late dinner at Sylvain while on vacation with two girlfriends. I am from Vermont, which has a vibrant and delicious food/restaurant culture. Sylvain was on par with any of my favorite restaurants here, with fresh, inventive food, great waitstaff, and tasty cocktails. My favorite meal on our vacation, hands down.
Slyvain has a lovely atmosphere and an exquisite menu. We were not rushed, the food was wonderful and the atmosphere was perfect.
Sylvain is terrific!!! Client-centered staff and team and the very best chicken sandwich ever. Bravo Sylvain!!
Sylvain was one of the best meals I have ever had! The cocktails (creative), the gulf fish crudo appetizer (best ever), and the fresh brussel sprouts made this meal unbelievable.
A must when in NOLA
Great service. Loved the shrimp and little clams. We had the eggplant and burrata appetizer.
Absolutely delicious. The waitress recommended the buffalo sweetbreads and the braised beef cheeks. Definitely order that.
We had a wonderful time! Staff was incredible and the food was great. Also loved the vibe of the place--dimly lit, but happy and energetic. We could have a great conversation and enjoy the people around us as well.
We can always count on Sylvain for a friendly French Quarter experience. The food is always fresh, the service is professional but relaxed and the environment is local French Quarter vibe. For Sunday brunch the menu was small, we opted for the french toast with blueberry compote. Huge slices of brioche was tasty but a bit dry. The additional butter and syrup had our plates clean. The champagne cocktails with Cava and lavender were very tasty. The atmosphere is very loud, but very friendly. We had a reservation, so we got seated immediately ahead of a number of folks waiting. This brunch was not a foodie experience, but the kitchen as well as front of house know how to please with an authentic local vibe along with professional service. We like this place for a casual meal while in the Quarter.
