Great food, lovely setting, friendly staff (without getting over friendly- just the right level). Highly recommended! Best dinner we had in New Orleans.

What I would give to be one of the neighbors who can just stroll to Gautreaus anytime they like. You’d never know this is a restaurant as you pull in but 5 minutes into being seated you can see why folks recommended we make reservations...More

Located close to the Garden District, this small, intimate restaurant excels in the quality of its food. A remodeled single-family home, the dining area is limited to about 10 tables. Service is friendly and attentive. The menu is not extensive, but each dish offered is...More

We had a wonderful meal here on a recent trip to New Orleans. I love the beautiful setting in a house in Uptown. This is a quintessential New Orleans restaurant away from the tourists. We'll be back

New Orleans has many small great neighborhood restaurants, and Gautreau’s stands near the top. Great fish and duck dishes. Excellent service. You might miss it when you drive by, but don’t miss the food

My daughter made reservations before we left for NOLA. We arrived at 6 (the opening time) and the place was empty, but filled up quite a bit later. Other than having to wait to order cocktails, the service was great. We both enjoyed our meals....More

Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly
fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife
and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s
