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.

                                      In addition to its fine food, there’s a festive ambiance and decor at Justine! We’re New Orleanians, and it has become a top choice for lunch/brunch.

If you are looking for a refreshing alternative dining experience after frequenting the 100+ year old classics in the quarter, this is your place. Well executed cocktails, apps, entrees and desserts are complemented by a visually stimulating dining room which varies from section to section. We will definitely be back.

                                      The server was pretty clueless and avoided eye contact. Took forever to get his attention at every turn.

                                      After a bad meal at Justine years ago, I swore it off; but on a recent visit, I was very much impressed with the food and service. Everything was absolutely delicious, and now I’m eager to go back. Hopefully that one bad meal forever ago (pre-pandemic even) was simply a fluke. Anyway, I’m feeling optimistic.

We got the escargot and Mac & Brie to start and Mussels and Shrimp and grits for entrees. Everything was made to perfection and delicious. Cocktails were also top notch.

                                      Oddest waiter ever. He just kind of showed up at the table and waited for us to speak, have never seen a wine bottle opened or wine poured so slowly. We wondered if we were on candid camera. Food was average. All in all we expected more.

                                      We sat down at 7.15 and by 9 pm, our entrees still could not have been served. The waiter did not give any updates and didn’t say when our food would come when we asked. It was an awful experience as we had to leave without eating dinner that night. The service is extremely poor and they have severe problems in managing the restaurant. I sincerely regret going to Justine’s.

                                      Everything was on point. Perfection. The only issue I had was the volume and choice of music. Incongruous to atmosphere and menu. I’d love to see a change in their music selection. Club music blaring didn’t match the menu or quality of food.

                                      We celebrated our anniversary at Justine & had an absolutely wonderful time! Our server made jokes with us & ensured we had a relaxing time (I am a server and tried to stack plates & he ensured us this was our time off). I loved the ambiance in the restaurant and had a fantastic time!

                                      It is amazing. I loved the french toast bites appetizer. I also love the mimosa service. Mrs. Paula was great. It took a while for our check but otherwise everything was amazing.

My waitress was a sweet heart and very knowledgeable of my menu. I was celebrating receiving my Master’s Degree with a couple friends and the vibe was great. 10/10 recommend!

                                      I would move to New Orleans just to be able to eat brunch here every weekend. From the first step in, I was in love! The people were welcoming and fun, the vibe was cool and relaxed and the food, oh my gosh, the food was unbelievable! Run to Justine and be sure to get the bread pudding French toast!

                                      We couldn’t get a resy before 9pm but when we walked in there were a ton of open tables. Service was terrible and it just felt very rushed and not quality. I think our first drink took 20-minutes to receive after waiting for a server to even come over and greet us. We were super disappointed.

                                      This is a very good restaurant. The food was very good. The service was very attentive. The drink prices are sorta typical. Maybe a bit overpriced. I’m not a big drink so it really did affect me much. I would certainly go back.

                                      Don’t waste your money! Goat cheese with crudités appetizer was inedible. Raw root veggies impossible to chew. I complained about it and nothing was done. We were charged the full price. Menu entree selections were scant. Hardly anything to choose from. Waiter never mentioned there were Happy Hour options. Total disappointment.

                                      We dropped in here for a more upscale French Quarter experience as we had been exploring the area all day. The room is a mix of warm and chic, the staff welcoming. The food is solid. The chef accommodated a vegetarian entree that had a beautiful mix of ingredients and was overly salty. We made mention of this, and the server and manager responded graciously. I would visit again and definitely recommend for a fun, elegant date night.

                                      HORRIBLE service and sub par food. I am shocked about how this once super popular FQ restaurant has sunken. The decor is still cute, so if you’re out and just want a glass of wine and a nice insta pic, that would work. But do not think you’re going to get a great meal, and the one you do will take an insanely long time to come. Highlights include: my guests fork being taken out of her hand WHILE she was still eating, no offer of a second round of cocktails, lukewarm water that was never refilled by the server, and, a bill for $175 for 4 people. That’s a typical bill at a GOOD nola restaurant. This is garbage. Just stick with Brennan’s where at least everything is predictably OK.

                                      Justine was good but sort of pricey for what you get.

                                      50th birthday dinner/Mother’s Day. Food was very good. Background music was fantastic. Steamed muscles are fantastic - would recommend as an appetizer/shared for the table. We had 7 people. Varied wine list but on the higher price side.

                                      The vibe was killer, as was the food. The wait staff were engaging and attentive. Watching chef run the kitchen was amazing too.

                                      The food and service was fantastic. The host gave us a great table for us with our baby. Couldn’t have had a better Mother’s Day brunch.

                                      More hype than substance. Service was really indifferent/inattentive. Food was fine but nothing special enough to overcome the other deficiencies.

                                      We arrived at the restaurant right at 5p, just in time for our reservation to discover that the doors were still locked. They did not open until 5:06p even when I called. That was disappointing and unprofessional. Despite the business casual attire dress code on OpenTable’s website, the hostess wore a white spaghetti strap, ripped jeans and black combat boots. I thought the restaurant had a dress code? The food portions were small unlike the prices and I couldn’t switch out the collard greens (I don’t like collard greens) when I contemplated ordering the fish on the market. Heather was a knowledgeable and attentive server, however, we do not plan on returning.

                                      Limited menu for entrees and desserts. Food was good but not great. Service was very good. Expensive compared to other restaurants we dined during our week in New Orleans

                                      Service was outstanding. The crawfish Mac was amazing. The host was awesome too! There wasn’t a whole lot of food options but what they had was amazing. The craft cocktails were very impressive as well.
