My family and I had dinner at Paulette's last night. I loved the new, lighter menu. It was nice combined with the familiar menu so everyone in our group was able to find something we liked. The best part of the experience was our server Donna. She was an expert on the menu and was just the right amount of... More

We enjoyed our dinner experience at Paulette's. Donna was a fabulous server. She was attentive and very welcoming. The staff were very accommodating considering we did not have a reservation. Food was good but I found the grouper to be a little dry. Coming from Florida, it is hard to beat our grouper here.

Enjoyed our visit to Paulette's for dinner. it is a really smart and comfortable restaurant with excellent food. Did notice the regulars were certainly getting more attention and it would have been nice to have felt less of an outsider. Yes would return if in the area.

You need to come for the French Toast for breakfast - if you cherish well prepared french toast you will understand. Enough said.

Don't miss the Eggs Benedict for breakfast! Enjoy the variety of juices and the fresh coffee or hot tea and enjoy the views of the MIGHTY MISSISSIPPI!
