While guests at the River Inn of Harbor Town, we ate at Paulette's our first night in. It was extremely good; as my wife and I were very pleased not only with the food itself, but the timing of delivery and the service (waiter) as well. May be a bit pricey for some, but to me you get what you... More

Our waiter, Chris Campbell, made our experience lovely. The popovers were such a unique and wonderful touch to the meal. They did an excellent job of serving me despite a food allergy. This needs to be a place to go if you are in Memphis.

All around incredible dining experience. The popovers were unique and delightful, the ice burg salad was a great starter, and the Filet Paulette was one of the best steaks I've had. So good we came back for the brunch the very next morning. 10/10! Our server Chris Cambell made our experience even more amazing. I would definitely recommend him. Loved... More

We enjoyed a gourmet breakfast here both mornings of our visit. Blueberry pancakes are perfect. Love this place and would return for dinner.

Took a business associate from California and she threatened to lick the plate ! It looked to be a little more pressured due to a private party in the room next to main dining but the servers did an admirable job. I found adequate but tasty gluten free food. Definitely a great place to go with the added attraction of... More

Excellent food and service. Downstairs is an elegant restaurant--upstairs a more casual rooftop bar with food. This restaurant has been around for many years and the owner knows what he is doing. A great experience.

The service is good and well matched by the very high quality of the food. The Chef here is serious about quality. Expensive but worth it.

I had been looking forward to eating here since planning my trip. Word of warning and a general rule. When an old favorite moves location and changes it's name from Dinner to Restaurant, be warned. The crab was overcooked and the desert looked like something more suited to TGI Friday's
