Although small and "intimate", the food and the service are five star!!! We have never had a bad meal or experience here and live to take guest and friends for dinner.

Food was amazing. Heard about the place due to the fried cupcakes -eh don't bother - come here for everything else. Everything from the salads to the the chicken and seafood dishes were superb. It's a casual white-cloth dining experience with attentive staff but not snooty. Went late on Sat night, it was quieter than expected but nice to get... More

Great, engaging server who accommodated multiple trips to the kitchen to check on ingredients for one of our party. Great drinks, great food, lovely ambience which permitted comfortable conversation to a pleasant background of traditional NO jazz (wish more restaurants followed this lead). We will be back

First night in town a local friend took us to Rue 127. The location and look are deceiving. The staff was excellent with all the information on the menu, bar stock and wine list that you could ask for. the Prix Fix Revillion meal was a great combination of foods. The seafood selections were very good too! I urge you... More

I like quiet restaurants where conversations can be meaningful. This fit the bill until a rowdy party arrived next to us. Food was excellent, but the waiter was not much help answering questions. Still, I'd the place recommend for the food and setting.

Outstanding dinner for 2! We went in thinking we would partake of the Coolinary menu but the regular menu had way too many delicious sounding items that we couldn't pass any up. We started with the small bites of boudin balls and foie gras bites while perusing the menu. We ordered several apps: the marrow which had wonderful carmelized onions... More

We enjoyed a summer special (2 appetizers, wine, and desert = $29 each) and started with a cheese board. All special items were full size and delicious; take your pick from the menu. Same for the wine; pick any choice on the menu. What I enjoyed most is that Rue 127 is all about the food. We found it to... More

Went last night. Started off with the mussels in a tasty broth which included lardons. This appetizer came with Frites fried in duck fat , sprinkled with salt and "black garlic"- excellent. I'm thankful we split that dish , or i would not have been able to finish the Diver Scallops- again excellently prepared and served on a mayonnaise-like sauce.... More

Get the unexpected and enjoy - it's worth it. Light or heavy or decadent can all be found on the menu. As well the wine list had a few unexpected gems. Forget pretense and have a good time in a wonderful and friendly yet simply elegant setting.

Because this place is so small, service can be a bit on the slow side, especially for a large group. I've visited several times, both lunch and dinner, and tables for 2 or 4 work best. It's worth the (sometimes) long waits for the craft cocktails, and every dish I've tried has been delicious, with the exception of the risotto,... More
