Sylvain Ratings and Reviews
My boyfriend and I decided to try Sylvain for our 2 year anniversary and we were not disappointed at all. Upon being seated, we were kindly greeted by our server with conplementary champagne. Service throughout our dinner was perfect, not too much and not too little. The pan fried pork shoulder was delicious! We will certainly be back!
The food was excellent! I has the steak which was perfectly cooked and the green sauce was absolutely amazing. I was genuinely sad when the meal was over because I wanted more. They have a hime made ginger soda that is delicious. I am not generally a big fan if the flavor ginger has, but this was delicious. I had two glasses! The service was excellent our server was attentive and was very well in formed of the dishes they serve. I would definitely go back again.
Our second visit here. This place is an absolute gem. Had the Southern Antipasti board, beet and tomato salad and the fish fritters to start. Followed by the Chick “Syl-Vain” sandwich and the Louisiana shrimp and clams with Limas, Brussels and couscous. If my only complaint was that the fries were too salty, I’d say they knocked it right out of the park, again. Cocktails were excellent. Bourbon milk punch ice cream sandwich was delicious but pretty tough and slightly awkward to eat. We will be back again soon!
What a treat! The industrial chic decor was just special enough, not overly swanky. A perfect ambience is created with low lighting and dark hues. My champagne cocktail was expertly crafted with hints of lavender and lemon aromatics. Lamb stew appetizer was hearty and savory. The braised skirt steak dinner was amazing with hints of Mediterranean flair. Sylvain provides complete satisfaction!
Cute place. The food was great. I ate the parpadelle Bolognese. The pasta was fresh and delicious and the meat was very soft and tasty. We also had the artisan cheese plate which was equally appetizing. My kids had the burger and the chicken sandwich. Both were excellent. And my husband liked the pork shoulder, although he did say it was a little bit dry.
Waited 25 minutes after showing on time for a reservation. Food wasn’t my thing but I guess I’m spoiled. Guess I just expected more based on what I’d heard. Music was very loud and obnoxious. Based on reviews I thought it would be much better. Ordered a beer and received the wrong one. Correct on my receipt which really didn’t make sense. Should have gone to Doris across the street.
Went here on a Friday night with my wife. Loved it. Dark and very New Orleans, both are good for me. Bourbon Milk Punch Ice Cream Sandwich for dessert was awesome. Service was very good. My only complaint is background music did not need to be quite so loud.
We loved the restaurant for quality and creativity of cuisine and for the dimly lit ambiance but the level of music and type of music was not conducive to conversation or a relaxed meal. So, I have mixed feelings. I recommend it but wouldn’t return because of the noise. The setting is so romantic, it is a shame that it wasn’t jazz.
Amazing experience at this place. It was a bit busy after the Saints game so when there is an event in town ita best to make reservations. The wait staff was very helpful with menu suggestions, and very knowledgeable about the extensive wine list. The food was absolutely delicious, and the cocktails were superb.
Sylvain is one of my favorite restaurants in New Orleans. The atmosphere is romantic enough for dates (low lights and those old school Quarter vibes) and yet vibrant enough for meeting up with friends. The staff is super accommodating and knowledgable about the menu, and the gastropub food is consistently fabulous. Really nice combination of ingredients. ORDER THE BEEF CHEEKS. You can also dine or hang out the that sweet courtyard in the back. I would even dine there alone but there's always someone around who'd like to eat at Sylvain's too. Don't forget to ORDER THE BEEF CHEEKS.
