In 1979, when Chef Paul Prudhomme and his late wife, K, opened their "modest", 62-seat K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen on Chartres Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans, they had no idea the restaurant was soon to become a sensation, with nightly lines of eager diners waiting sometimes hours to be seated. That was back when and dining was community seating. In 1996, extensive renovations took place and now it offers seating for more than 200. Dining areas include seasonal balcony dining, an intimate climate-controlled courtyard for dining al fresco, K's Parlor private seating as well as open kitchens on both floors. K-Paul's accepts reservations and offers catering on-site or anywhere around the world. Executive Chef Paul Miller goes to great lengths to ensure the highest quality food. We have 3 kitchen and a bakery and the philosophy and commitment to excellence will never change. Chef Paul and the entire staff cordially welcome you to join us for lunch or dinner!
I would never go to k pauls again food was terable grezy and plastic knife and fork when they called your number u had to go and pick it up at the window had to complain to the manager how greasy his food was he said oh well. can see kitchen staff cooking and to tell the truth it grosed me out they dont even wear gloves couldnt pay me to go back i am sure Mr Paul would be shocket to have staff that treated us the way we were treated and we took guests from over seas how red faced we were
I was looking for a decent catering service that was decently priced. Honestly, I was shocked to hear that it costs 95 per person at a reception and it has to be at least 75 people attending. Pretty crazy.
K-Paul's cuisine will not disapoint you!
Turtle soup ~ meaty, thick, rich and full of flavor
Rabbit Tenderloin ~ Delicious (the sauce is so good!)
Pan Fried Flounder with Shrimp and again, the sauce ~ Amazing! Best fish I've eaten, white, flaky and not fishy tasting at all!
Oh and we were so full, we asked for our dessert to be boxed to go. We opened it to take a bite and finished it right there! OMG! Chocolate, Caramel Torte or something...Delicious! I want that recipe!
Overall, we were very satisfied with the food and our server (who, by the way graciously waited on a table of 10, plus 2 more 2-Top tables-Party of 14!) Our Service was awesome! Thanks K-Pauls! We'll be back!
On April the 4th 2009, I and my family went into K-Paul's restaurant only because it did not have a line to wait in. We walked and took in the atmosphere and automatically set our standards high for service/food but truly was disappointed because while standing waiting to be seated the bartender was not helpful at all in telling us that we were to order up front, deli styled, so while ordering we were complaining and nippy with each other because were were starving but weren't absolutely mean to the bartender though she wasn't helpful in explaining to my aunt or my grandmother what was in certain dishes, my aunt and grandma were visiting from Scotland and were unfamiliar with some of the food. Once we received our food we weren't happy to be served on foam plates and airplane cutlery, it was ridiculous how much it cost for a CAN of coke , 2 dollars. Also my mother pointed out that the chef or staff weren't wearing any gloves the chef then proceeded to talk about my mother behind her back, saying calling her mean names. As for the food my aunt's egg plant lasagna was laying in a pool a grease, my cousin's potato salad was a glop of pureed eggs and potato, my dad's red beans and rice was tasteless, my Cole slaw wasn't even Cole slaw it was a salad. When we complained to the manager he was very rude and wouldn't hear us out he told us we consumed the food so we weren't entitled to a refund which we weren't even asking for. He said we were rude to the staff, frustrating the bartender to the point of walking off the floor. Not once acknowledged our complaints and walking away but he was going to argue with us. My aunt finally gave in to telling him that we are related to Gordon Ramsey, we don't flaunt it around or anything because it is a shameful thing just to get good service or to be listened to it wasn't until after she let him know that we are related to Gordon Ramsey that he listened to my aunt's complaints of the food and my aunt actually told him how to do lasagna. So just to let you know no one in my family is ever going back to K-Paul's and I will tell people of my bad experience because that is the type of costumer I am when I have really bad experience or really good experience I let people know I spread the word around.
This is our first trip to New Orleans. We're from San Francisco maybe we're spoiled because bay area has great culinary, food and great price...So it's either our expectations were too high or maybe we just don't know the right places in New Orleans where the locals go...Anyways, after reading the previous reviews we gave this place a try. It's Thur night and the place is half empty so no problem at all being seated. The place is comfortable. We are two people we ordered one appertizer we were surprised cause it's so tiny... it came up really fast and it feels like one of those chili bean soup you would get from Togo's where they would scoop up from a big pot and ready to serve...We also ordered one main course for each. The cooking, presentation, flavor is just so so...nothing special....to us. We tasted each other's food and they almost taste the same, including the appertizer...as if the chef dumped the same spice /sauce into 2 different pot as he's cooking them... The dishes also have the same composition - just different meat over the same flavored rice, vegi, etc. In other words, what we get is not worth the $100 bill, to us...The flavor is very heavy perhaps that's the taste of louisiana/ southern food? Also French Quarter at night has lots of police patrols and the visual atmosphere driving around the hood at night is kinda spooky...
I went here to eat in May 1985. Back then the place was quite small. We waited in long lines and had to share a table with the locals. I am a vegetarian, so I asked the waiter if the chef could cook me up something special for a vegetarian, he left and came back with the good news that the chef used to cook for a vegetarian in the past. When my special vegetarian dinner arrived, even the locals were amazed and applauded this first time ever seen food. Needless to say, the food was excellent. Very creamy with the perfect blend of spices. Even after 23 years, I will never forget the goodness of the food at K-Paul's.
We were there for our 25th wedding anniversary and were thrilled with the food, service, atmosphere everything. We did mention we were celebrating our anniversary and they served us champaign, had a strolling jazz band come in and serenade us as well as giving us a small gift from their store. Even if all these extras had not happened, it was more than worth the money. This resturant is everything they say it is and then some. Thank You K Pauls. We will be back next year also.
