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.

    Not bad. But not what I was expecting. Very cool ambiance. But the food just didn’t quite have the sparkle I was looking for. Now don’t get me wrong it wasn’t bad!! Just a little flat for the pricing.

    We had amazing food and drinks. Our server and the sommelier helped us to create our own dessert drinks, and they really took time to figure out and execute exactly what we wanted. The bartenders were also super welcoming. Awesome experience all around.

    Sunday brunch, just the way it should be. No sagging buffets of picked-over food, just a compact and well curated menu of dishes perfectly prepared and professionally presented. Buttermilk biscuit with beef debris topped with eggs, French toast sticks, traditional breakfast, including potatoes fried in duck-fat. A delectable burger with sauce au poivre. Hand squeezed orange juice. Paris worthy coffees.

    This was our third visit to Justine’s and the restaurant appears to be getting better and better each and every time! Our waiter. Eric was outstanding, and the food selection and quality was tremendous as usual. They definitely have the best shrimp and grits in New Orleans! You must try their French toast stick bites if you get to go for brunch!

    We love Justine's. We had a bad experience Mardi Gras evening. First, they were out of burgers.Three people in our party ordered steak and frites. The food took at least an hour. Apparently they also ran out of fries. We were served potato chips in place of the frites. So $45 for some very chewy steak and potato chips. I think they must have been short staffed for the holiday. On a positive note our waiter Mike was amazing. Very personable and accommodating. We will be back and hope for a better experience.

    At first when we got there as a hostess greeted us very kindly she got us set right away. We had reservations as you know. They did not come to us and ask us for even water for 12 minutes. The reason I know this is I looked at my watch at that time. Several people walked by made semi contact to our eyes, but never came up and gave us any water or asked us if we needed anything. The waiter was very nice. The service was decent, but 3 to 4 things we received were super salty. The salad was not even ingestible. We had to send it back. The mac & cheese was super salty brussels sprouts were salty and the Bolognese was also a little salty. We did not complain about anything except the salt in the salad and had to get a new one. Still left a 20% tip and did not complain.

    Very excited about trying this restaurant on Mardi Gras. The positives-The place is beautiful and has a great vibe. The negatives-they ran out of food on an already very limited menu. Ordered the special Red snapper which was tiny, overcooked and overpriced. Granted it was Mardi Gras, but will not be back.

    Went on Mardi Gras - which likely makes my experience more of an anomaly. Not a lot of options on the menu, way less than I saw online at the time of making a reservation, and they were out of several things anyway. Kitchen was very backed up and food took a long time. We got to talk to the tables on both sides of us a lot as we all waited. My partner got the rigatoni and did like it, I got the croque mousier , which was very cheesy but also very bready, so I ended up leaving the corners of the bread uneaten. The crisps tasted good but I also didn’t finish them. The tables next to us said they have had better shrimp and grits literally anywhere else, and also that the fish special was nothing special. The king cake dessert didn’t impress the other table next to us, but I liked it just fine. It wasn’t anything to gush over though. There overall value for price of what we ate wasn’t great. Likely won’t return or recommend based on our experience but other reviews are very favorable, so again - was probably just an off night

    Disappointed is how I would describe my experience. Service started out great but I think our waiter got overwhelmed with tables. After our entrees were served, the next time we saw her was to pick up our dirty dishes. She brought us the bill without asking if we were interested in dessert. Entrée portions are to the small side for the cost. We tried to explain to the waiter our bill did not include a gratuity (we were a party of 8; menu indicates 20% gratuity applied for parties of 5 or more). She insisted the gratuity was included. We finally got a manager involved who added the gratuity to our bill. We were not looking to stiff her.

    We really enjoyed a girls night out at Justine. We had the cheese bread appetizer (with honey and rosemary-came highly recommended by our server and did not disappoint!). Then we each had the burger with au poive sauce and the pasta bolognaise - each were full of flavor! We had drinks and dessert and just really enjoyed our whole meal.

    We were disappointed in that many of the mussels were shells only. Communicated this to our server but they didn’t remove it from the bill. Although not a busy night, service in the kitchen was very slow and we waited a long time for our dinner. Our server was friendly and attentive.

    Ambience is beautiful. Unfortunately the food was not. Escargot tasted like soap. My steak au poive was mediocre. The steak was perfect but the sauce average at best. My husbands shrimp and grits was delicious. He rated that dish awesome. So mixed review from us.

    Justine is wonderful if you are looking for a bachelorette/birthday vibe/embience. You are not going for the food. Just know that going in. The mimosa "bottle service" was lackluster, they brought out the wrong entree to my friend, and they charged us for the birthday dessert (without asking us what dessert we wanted or confirming the price). Again, cute spot for insta-worthy pics, but manage your expectations.

    We are here last year and while the food was good the noise from the music was so loud it hurt our ears. We let them know how uncomfortable it was as we left. But, we're used to give it another try this year. The food was very good and the music was in the background. You could hold a conversation without yelling. Thank you for listening to your customers.

    The vibe is cool, service was great but I just thought the food was meh. I had the French onion soup. It look nothing like the picture. Did not have a nice cheesy crust on top my friend had the steak and fries and it was just a bland steak with some peppercorn gravy. Nothing to rave about. The drinks were good and I recommend the Green Goddess.

    Adorable decor, classy bar, romantic vibes. I loved the look of Justine. The server was so knowledgeable about the menu and personable and efficient.
