Founded in 1913, this family-run, Italian-Creole restaurant is located in uptown New Orleans. It is famous for creating barbecued shrimp.

This neighborhood restaurant is vintage New Orleans, from the service to the decor. The oyster bar always manned by a friendly shucker. The oysters are fresh, salty and delicious.

The old time oyster bar and cocktail bar offers raw oysters on the half shell and all types of cocktails. We offer fine seafood, Italian specialties and delicious steaks.

    Had the signature shrimp BBQ shrimp as appetizer. Shrimp overcooked and sauce had no flavor. Ordered stuffed shrimp. Served as a hardened pod shell. Had to cut with knife, noticed no shrimp, but included shell pieces and stuffing. Would not order this again. Spouse had fried oysters. Cooked correctly, not over cooked and served hot. Neither of us finished our dishes. Both served with diced potatoes or French fries, so it seemed overpriced. Was looking forward to this, but disappointed. We would not return. The restaurant was full, so not everyone agrees with me.

    Was told by a local to eat here for the famous bbq shrimp, was not impressed. They were very overcooked and really no taste to them unless you dip your bread into the sauce. Menu is small. Turtle soup had vey tiny pieces of turtle in it (like a grain of salt). Service was fantastic to bad the food wasn’t.

    We enjoyed the lunch menu on a Thursday. The waitress was very friendly and had great suggestions. The catfish was so light, with wonderful crab and artichokes. My husband had the shrimp Mediterranean which was delicious! The hot Fresh bread melted in our mouths,soaking up the tasty sauces. Our dessert was the key lime pie:Yummy! We definitely want to return for another meal. We loved it!

    Celebrated my mother in law's 75th birthday this week here and it was spectacular! Our first time in, and we will definitely be back! Fresh shucked oysters were awesome, nice and cold how they should be. Eggplant dryads was delicious. Thank you for a great experience!

    I like to go to lunch at Pascal's Manale. The lunch menu is excellent. Our server has a trainee with him. They were both great and it was good too how the "family" connection was being passed from an experienced server to a novice server.

    Barbecue Shrimp were advertised on the menu as “tangy and spicy”. The were far from both of these. Need to step it up if you will continue to claim best barbecue shrimp in New Orleans. Actually, my wife make a better dish than Pascals Manales. Truly disappointing!

    Our table was in a horrible spot and I noted it was a special occasion. The crab cakes are amazing and I had the mahi magi and it was dry and not nearly as flavorful as the appetizer.

    We had 5 in our party and Eric was an excellent server. Everyone of us enjoyed our meal. I had the Grilled Fish (mahi-mahi) Orleans and it was delicious! Their bread is also awesome and they certainly aren’t stingy with it. Also had the caramel custard and it didn’t disappoint.

    This is one of the few places we would go to every time we visit New Orleans. We love the Service, Atmosphere but especially the Food. The BBQ Shrimp is the absolute best anywhere and we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of their Raw Oysters, among the best we had in New Orleans! Highly Recommend.

    Not the restaurant it once was. If you order anything other than the BBQ shrimp, you will be disappointed - we were. And even with the shrimp the french bread was not the freshest.

    We were recommended to dine here last Saturday night. It was by far the worst food we have ever had when visiting New Orleans. Our waiter was a nice young man but forgot to bring items despite being reminded several times. The famous pan roast was just so so. The Bienville oysters were gross. I usually don’t say much but this place is not good.

    I had the signature dish, BBQ shrimp. Absolutely, the best in the city! No small shrimp here. They were, every one of them, the colossal shrimp, all seasoned to perfection. Pascal's is a gem for the neighborhood and the city. Already looking forward to my next NOLA visit.

    It was our first time to visit Pascal’s and we definitely wanted to try the BBQ shrimp. It was delicious. Just as good, maybe even better, was the seared catfish with lump crab and artichokes with a magnificent cream sauce. Our waitress was knowledgeable, friendly, and most helpful. Pascal’s is one of the best restaurants we’ve found in New Orleans.
