I can't say enough about how great our experience was. The food was excellent, the services was impeccable, and the attention to detail was impressive. Sam was our waiter and he could not have been any better. We will be back!

Arrived at the Harbor Inn Hotel after a six hour drive from New Orleans with no energy to schlep into town, to be told Paulette's restaurant was totally taken out by a bank blank booking. That is actually paying pretty scant regard to your hotel paying customers without advance advice. That said, we were directed to the 4th floor terrace... More

We had lunch:salmon with green beans & chicken crepe with sauteed vegetables. It was all very well prepared;salmon moist, the vegetables cooked just right,not overdone. Sam gave us very good service and was very friendly and professional. It was very enjoyable.

A sophisticated breakfast in a romantic setting!! My only regret, we had dinner plans throughout out visit in Memphis, so we could not go for dinner! Incredible service, located in a part of Memphis that is not talked about very often,--but it is truly gorgeous!

By far, Paulettes lives up to its rich history. It's owner, George Falls ensures that all means are prepared properly and that all guests are treated with personal care.
