Founded in 1913, this family-run, Italian-Creole restaurant is located in uptown New Orleans. It is famous for creating barbecued shrimp.

This neighborhood restaurant is vintage New Orleans, from the service to the decor. The oyster bar always manned by a friendly shucker. The oysters are fresh, salty and delicious.

The old time oyster bar and cocktail bar offers raw oysters on the half shell and all types of cocktails. We offer fine seafood, Italian specialties and delicious steaks.

    First time visiting since taken over by new management. The staff were wonderful and the menu was reliable. We had the special of grilled trout topped with BBQ Shrimp. It was such a great combination. We are so happy the legacy of the restaurant will live on. They have also been doing exterior renovations - which are quite nice.

    What a terrific experience. Felt like I went back in time. The BBQ shrimp was outstanding and don’t sleep on the wedge salad with Bleu cheese dressing. Service was attentive without being noticed. This place is run well. If you want an out of the way non-touristy experience don’t miss This place

    Came for the BBQ Shrimp but this great place offers a quiet, local escape from the hustle and bustle of the French Quarter. The food is delicious and the service is fantastic, ask for Louie.

    Took my sister to a late lunch at Pascal’s Manale to celebrate her retirement. We were thrilled with every aspect of our experience at this iconic New Orleans restaurant! Our meal of sautéed catfish with tons of lump crabmeat and artichoke hearts topped with a lemon butter sauce was fabulous as was the crisp salad with delicious house-made blue-cheese dressing. Our waitress, as well as another waiter who stopped to chat, was friendly and caring. When we complimented her on her excellent attention, she smiled and said, “I love my job!” That was evident! Our visit was enhanced by beautiful old oak trees outside the large dining room windows. Thank you Brennan Family for continuing every great about Pascal’s Manale!

    Great experience. Super good bbq shrimp as usual and I had the NY Strip steak. The steak is the best I’ve had anywhere - better than I’ve had at Ruths Cris and Femings. My mouth waters just thinking about it. Love this place.

    It had been years since some of us had been there and we were thrilled to have a wonderful dining experience. We went after our son's law school graduation. He wore his cap and so many staff and diners congratulated him. The service was so attentive. From the bread and butter through dessert - everything was delicious. Of course, the BBQ shrimp was the best. One weakling one was the seafood medley - a little mushy but it had good flavor. Oysters were plump and juicy. In the scheme of things, the prices are really good for what you get. Can't wait to return.

    Our best meal during our entire stay in N'Awlins! Had a large group where we nicely seated in our own private room. The service was great and timely while bringing us tasty oysters, BBQ shrimp, veal marsala and fried eggplant. Scrumptious! With their oyster bar of over 100 years old, I try to make this a stop whenever in town. I highly recommend them!

    Sadly - our dining experience was just not what I remembered from the past. Food was just OK The room we were in was extremely loud - so much so that it lessened out dining experience. I understand the ownership has had some change - recommend that the new folks get some time to work out the kinks.

    we have not been to pascals Manale in more than 20 years during a trip to New Orleans. It was under the original owners. Yeah it did not disappoint. So it was great service staff and we had a delicious meal. This is probably more of a locals restaurant and that’s what we wanted.

    Always spot on with both service and food! If you are there for lunch, try the bbq shrimp poorboy. Just the right size, not too messy and it comes with a side salad or a bowl of gumbo. Enjoy it with an Abita Amber or a Bloody Mary and you have a delightful lunch😋
