Justin & Mia Devillier, owners and operators of La Petite Grocery & Balise Tavern, introduce their 3rd restaurant, Justine. Combining the sophistication of Parisian brasseries with the playfulness of the South’s most lively district, New Orleans’ French Quarter. True to the heart of French brasserie culture, the bustling, multi-roomed restaurant offers a versatile space to be enjoyed by all, whether it’s for a weekday lunch, afternoon glass of wine, or celebratory dinner. The kitchen is led by Chef & Owner Justin Devillier. The menu showcases classic French technique: Soupe à l'Oignon Gratinée blistered & bubbly, with gruyere & ementhaller; Raclette melts a blanket of cheese over potatoes, Parisian ham & cornichons. Justine's many beef offerings pay homage to the French boucherie.

    Delightful Sunday birthday brunch, with attentive service. There were 5 of us whose menu choices ranged from French onion soup to escargot, fish and chips, chicken sandwich. Appetizers included banana bread, crispy cubed sticks of banana bread pudding French toast (delicious!). All good. Justine has a festive ambiance, we enjoy!

    We had a lovely brunch experience at Justine. The food and ambience was exceptional. Most of the hosts, hostesses, servers and managers were superb; our waitress seemed annoyed with any interaction, but all other employees were beyond kind and helpful. Overall, it was a wonderful experience.

    Our waitress, Madison, was a delight. Very helpful. We had the house salad, burrata with pistachio pistou, mussels and chicken confit. Everything was absolutely delicious! We ended up chatting with the couple next door. It seems this restaurant is mostly attended by locals and it shows that they love it. What a find!

    Justine is a beautiful restaurant. Exactly the atmosphere we were hoping for on our last night in NOLA. We were seated earlier than our 7:00 reservation and the wait staff was great. The only issue of note is the price. It’s VERY overpriced. Three scallops was a whopping $36 and a 4 oz piece of fish and a few string beans was $42. And that’s with no sides! Those were extra. We were, however, pleasantly surprised with the complimentary champagne for our anniversary. But our bill for two, with gratuity, was well over $200. So be prepared.

    Had a great dinner at Justine. I ordered the strip steak and it was one of the best steaks I have ever had. We also shared the burrata and the beef tartare - which were great as well. The ambiance was excellent and our server, Bri Bri, was very friendly and energetic. It was a bit pricey, but the food was five stars, so didn't mind paying. Great wine selection too. Definitely make a reservation though, this place got pretty full very quickly around dinner time.

    The service and food were very good; but sitting witnessing rather loud disagreements/arguments between chefs and serving staff was not part of our planned date. Management was lacking the courage to deal with the situation which speaks volumes for why more junior members of staff behave so unprofessionally.

    All the hostesses and servers were amazing and very welcoming. The food was unexpected for the price. For almost $40 we got 3 scallops that smelled too fishy and another $40 wasted on a lukewarm flank steak and drenched in sauce. The brussel sprouts were tasty but flakey and small. Best dishes were the cheese and escargot, but be aware that the escargot is already out of the shells and very hot! This restaurant is definitely just for the vibes and pictures for Instagram.

    We came to celebrate my husband’s 40th birthday. From the time we were seated til the time we left we had a great time. Our server was great to our party, she took care of all our needs and answered all our questions. The food was delicious. We got a little bit of everything. I would definitely recommend coming here. Oh and the noise level was just right. We could hear each other and still had great music in the background.

    Onion soup was delicious!! Crabmeat and Macaroni was fairly good. Pan seared fish was greasy and a whatever. Chicken wings were a whatever. Service by our waiter was almost nonexistent. At one point after the soup and before our entrees we sat with no drinks for 30+ minutes - no water even though they put bottles on tables, no beer refills, no Diet Coke refills. When we finally saw our waiter he had quite the attitude about our request for drink refills. Overall food was mediocre and service was a zero. With so many good restaurants in the area I would not waste my money at Justine.

    While the actual restaurant was incredibly inviting and the aesthetic was very pleasing, the wait staff left much to be desired. Our server checked on us once the entire time while other people brought our food. When spending over $100 for breakfast, it leaves a bad taste in your mouth when the service lacks tremendously.

    The French onion soup was unbelievable and I absolutely adored the atmosphere of Justine! It was modern, chic and artistic, and I really appreciated the cheeky French etiquette quotes on the menus and the wall. I dined here after growing tired of classic New Orleans fare like gumbo, jambalaya, crawfish, etc. It was just what I needed, but still felt true to the city’s French roots!

    Having had several good meals at Devillier's La Petite Grocerie on Magazine, we thought to try Justine for an anniversary luncheon in the Quarter. The hosts were unfriendly, the wait staff surly and the food was unnoteworthy. The french onion soup was tepid and did not arrive with a soup spoon, which my husband had to go fetch. The rye sourdough was mealy. Everything was just underwhelming. The bathrooms are like what you would have found in a 1980's high school--scratched and dented metal stalls, slimy tile and a reek that would put you off your dinner--not at all in alignment with the decor and ambiance of the dining rooms. What really set my husband off was the manager who wore a sports coat with no shirt underneath--completely bare-chested. When combined with the trouble and expense of getting to and parking in the Quarter, the experience just wasn't worth the hassle. Justine is trying hard to be a hip French bistro, but it falls really short and we felt completely unwelcome. The servers and host staff in Parisian bistros are more hospitable!

    Mixed thoughts on our dining experience. Table selection (narrow booth) was confining while we observed an empty restaurant with 4 and 6 top standard tables. Service staff set a hectic ordering and serving tempo with delayed sides arriving towards the end of our main courses. Meal starters and mains were a highlight: beef tartare, whipped goat cheese, escargot, wild boar pasta, grilled lamb, market fish, shrimp & grits. Lots of potential for a return visit but recommend waitstaff & managers consider optimal seating for diners + developing a comfortable service tempo.
