The food was really excellent. We were in town to celebrate my partner's birthday. I love this place. The service was spotty. There were quite a few larger tables and that could have impacted the service. The waiter did not come to our table to take our cocktail order until about 20 minutes after we sat down. Then he did not come back for our food order for another 20 minutes. It was about 30 minutes between removal of our salad course plates and delivery of the entrees. This was the only negative comment. But that really does impact your dinner.

Great restaurant! The food was fabulous and the service was excellent. A hidden treasure! The wine list was extensive and included some very nice wines.

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. I would recommend.

We were recently in NOLA for five days. We ate a a number of very good restaurants. This was the best. Tucked away it the Uptown section, far away from Bourbon Street, this restaurant is a hidden gem. In, fact, so hidden that it is difficult to spot from the street (no sign). Gautreau’s offers high end French-creole dining. The dining room is beautiful, staff very helpful, wine list is extraordinary, and the food is very good. Simply could not ask for more. Highly recommended.

This was our 20th-anniversary trip. Gautreau's was booked by our hotel concierge after I expressed an interest in having French food for our special dinner. I can't say that it was a very memorable meal. However, it was very good. The duck confit was very good. Snapper was 3.5 starts. It was a bit dry. Veal was very good 4.5 stars. The service was also 4 stars. They did not acknowledge that we were there for a special occasion and we did not experience anything extraordinary to warrant 5 stars. Overall I would recommend the restaurant but not as my top option in NOLA.
