French American

Gautreau's has been a locals favorite since 1983. Local seafood as well as fresh fish from the Northern Pacific and the Atlantic have been featured items for decades. Innovative wine list changes frequently and is filled with well chosen wines from small producers. The restaurant is 3 blocks from St. Charles Avenue and only a 15 minute drive from the French Quarter. The building is in a quaint uptown residential neighborhood with street parking available.

Gautreau's chefs have been recognized nationally by the James Beard Foundation, Food and Wine magazine, New York Times, Zagat and others.

"The restaurant's reputation for developing young talent has earned it much national press, and owner Patrick Singley allows his hires wide berth" food critic of the Times-Picayune.

Private Party Room: Comfortably seats between 15 and 25 guests. Full buyouts of the restaurant are available. Please call 504-899-7397

    Anniversary dinner celebration ❤️ The food was insanely delicious, full of flavor with the chef using unique ingredients. Presentation was eye candy - but make sure you save room for dessert. By all means, get the blueberry dish with goat cheese ice cream. Promise you will be glad you did!! Ps- notes about there being no signage is correct. There is ZERO signage. ;)

    Beautiful little restaurant in the Garden District neighborhood. Everything was wonderful except the noise level was almost intolerable. Lots of people having lots of fun! Our party included 2 men with poor hearing so it was difficult to have a conversation. We understand the restaurant is small and when a few tables left it was much much better. The food was delicious and creative. Great evening overall.

    Always a treat for NOLA out-of-towners like us. Embodies classic southern charm and the food is delicious. Only down side is the place is a bit noisy with energetic conversations all around. But that’s a very minor inconvenience… Thierry from Boston

    Our family appreciated both the selection and the quality of the food. The snapper special was especially good, at least soup/stew/sauce that came with it. The snapper itself was somewhat dry and crunchy, which actually complemented the rest of the dish. Our son loved the shrimp with lemon and coconut and our vegetarian friend found both a salad and a lentil dish she loved. The very best part of the meal was dessert! Order it! The service was excellent and the restaurant celebrated our son's birthday by decorating the table and serving his dessert with a candle in it. A very nice touch indeed!

    My wife and I enjoyed having dinner at Gautreau’s last night. Food was really good, great presentation, and the service was excellent. The restaurant has a nice ambiance with only one issue as noted in other reviews- it’s quite noisy. Nonetheless, it’s a fun and enjoyable place to have dinner. Highly recommend this place and will definitely revisit it on our next trip to NOLA.

    As always, it was amazing. A night to celebrate a birthday and completion of a major task, Gautreau's was the place to be. We started with drinks - a Pimm's Cup for my friend and an Old Fashion for me - both delightful and refreshing. After hearing the specials, it was difficult to select but I went with the Foie Gras - it just melted in my mouth. We both had the enjoyed Shrimp with the black rice, then selected two different desserts - Chocolate Bouchon and an Apple Tart. The service was attentive without being intrusive. Can't wait to return and do it all again.
