My husband is from NOLA, so we have to satisfy his cravings for amazing Cajun cuisine from time to time. And we have been everywhere in Austin for great NOLA food. We looked at local places that deliver and were/are completely satisfied with GrubHub and FQG! Having been to NOLA many times, I can tell you that the food is authentic and amazing. The gentleman that delivered was quite courteous with his pre-delivery call and so deserving of an additional tip. And after sampling them all, his favorite place is French Quarter Grill.
It's located in a little plaza and we would've never thought to stop but we were so glad we did. Our server was fantastic she knew the menu inside and out , which seafood was freshly caught, farm raised vs wild caught, and made fantastic recommendations! The red fish special was great and super filling, both of my coworkers raved all night about their pork tenderloin and they went with our servers recommendation which was to swap the mango sauce for the roasted artichoke sauce. Also, their homemade basil vinaigrette was one of the best salad dressings I've ever had... I could drink it.
The atmosphere is nicer than what I would expect in a Walmart plaza. I came with a friend who gives it rave reviews and wasn't disappointed. The fish in my Fish Ponchatrain was a delight - perfectly cooked and moist. I would say this particular meal was even better than the fish I had at Roaring Fork. The sauce over rice was too much of a temptation to stop eating. The portions here are generous so come hungry. The turtle cheesecake w/extra nuts was delicious. I heard their keylime pie is even better but It wasn't on the menu.
If you want excellent food and great wine then this little gem is your place! I have been several times over the years & this quaint place never disappoints. The food is so full of flavor and they have the best prices on wine in town. The service is superb and the owner Scott ensures that you and your guests truly have a relaxing and enjoyable dining experience.
This is my "go to place" for fine dining in North Austin when I'm in the mood for Cajun and traditional American cuisine.
So why bother with the traffic & parking issues of downtown when you can dine instead at the French Quarter Grill !
