Don't know about the food - didn't try it, but we came in here on 2 consecutive Saturdays & listened to the extremely talented Cole Williams. What a talent this lady has! You can listen to her on YouTube. Writes most of the material she sings. Like the fact that they serve you in proper glasses too.

OK, I just wanted to leave - the air from the AC vent was so cold and I had on a short sleeve tee - but I would have had to cross the entire floor and that made me uncomfortable! So I stayed and stayed uncomfortable - not a great way to check out a restaurant! The place is pretty... More

We got to NOLA on NYE at 5 pm and since it was the first time here, we were wondering around for food and drinks. We ended up here and it wasn't bad. The first impression was bad: the hostess who greeted us had no clue about reservation, table availability or waiting time. I personally went to check the dining... More

We dropped in for a quick bite of appetizers and some beer. Enjoyed local drafts , the boudin balls, and crawfish fritters. Good service.

Stopped in for small dinner and drinks with 21 year old daughter. This place was really neat. Cool vibe, good live music, and the food was really great. Excellent gumbo and crawfish fritters on remoulade. Highly recommend the Cucumber Basil Lemonade.

This was one of the worst dining experiences ever... my wife and mother-in-law said "lets not stay" so it's only me to blame as I said there are not that many places to get a meal on Frenchman and hear music. We set close to the stage and the "performer" just started screeching, I kid you not she just screeched... More

We had a party of 3 people and the total bill was $93. We had spinach artichoke dip that was awesome, Parmesan French fries appetizer and oyster shooters. For the main course we had shrimp creole walking tacos and rib eye with mashed potatoes and a side of the French fries instead of a salad. Also ordered 4 beers. The... More

We spent an evening listening to several distinctive bands that were quite wonderful. The food is also quite good so it is a great place to leisurely dine while taking in the soulful sounds of the musicians on this Frenchman Street Bistro.

We had a wonderful dinner of local dishes and were treated by a live jazz band. The blackened redfish was the family favorite.

Food was excellent, service was great! There wait staff was helpful in deciding what to select. The restrooms were clean. This is by the French Quarter, but if you eat there when they are playing jazz outside, you just can't get a better experience than that!

Thank Shawn S

In an eclectic neighborhood called the Faubourg Marigny, there are plenty of things to do...Shop, listen to live music and, of course, EAT! One place that you don't want to miss sits on the corner of Royal & Frenchmen Streets: Marigny Brasserie & Bar. That's us! We are a local favorite that "feels like it's your place" the minute you arrive. Our menu has a lot to offer, serving fresh seasonal ingredients prepared to order. We serve up tasty specialty drinks, have local beers on tap and an extensive wine list at very competitive prices. Come hang out with the locals on Frenchmen Street for live music, great dining, socializing and people watching. Come see what a New Orleans Neighborhood Restaurant Feels Like!

Neighbourhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
