We made a reservation here expecting the place to be a madhouse, with Mardi Gras and all going on. Instead, we showed up and were pleasantly surprised with a quiet dining experience instead. That said, better safe than sorry, so make reservations anyway. The location is fine, though be careful about wandering too far as you'll quickly find yourself by... More

This is my fourth or fifth visit to Dick and Jennys. Each time I bring back a different set of friends or business associates, and the restaurant always delivers. It is worth the $10 taxi ride from the French quarter. The restaurant is more of a family style bar and restaurant and it's not fancy. The seating and tables are... More

I've lived in New Orleans for almost 2 years now and make it a point to try to eat my way through the city as I may not be here for much longer. I have eaten at all the top tripadvisor restaurants and pretty much leave feeling ok or semi-satisfied....but nothing to ever rave about or go out of my... More

our party of four adults enjoyed an array of tasty flavors for dinner. the shrimp and grits were very good, on par with any top-notch version i have had. ahi tuna was prepared just right. and a smoked duck entre was superb. the service was friendly, but needs to be polished up a bit to hit that top tier professional...

We had great service, and great food and drink. Creative approach to local favorites. A bit off the beaten track, but worth the trek, and next door to Tipitina's, if you're headed there for music afterwards.

As in my 2012 review, Dick & Jenny's doesn't quite make the upper level. Our chargrilled oysters were delicious, The beet salad was good, and my wife called her black drum excellent (and it was!). My braised pork cheeks were quite uninteresting, though, and as they were mine I left somewhat disappointed.

Making a list Checking it twice Gonna find out whose naughty and nice..... Xmas Eve dinner on out of town trip and it was very nice. Most of our trip was spent eating fried food in the French quarter and standard tourist fare restaurants like Brennan's which tend to be overrated. I had eaten in this place several years ago...

A wonderful restaurant. Great food, great service, great staff. I can't say enough good things about this place. I've eaten there several times and it is now on my must do list whenever I go to New Orleans. The food is eclectic but with a local flair Price for dinner for two with cocktails first and wine with dinner is... More

We made the trip out of town to this truly local spot and had a great first night meal at the start of our long weekend break. The dishes were all local and the servers were full of southern charm. the only drawback to the food was the desserts, they weren't really on the same level as the other courses... More

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighbourhood Profile
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 outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
