K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen
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 historic 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 in the days when K-Paul's didn't accept reservations or credit cards! But now, under the hands-on direction of Chef Paul Prudhomme, the restaurant has gone through major changes to keep up with the growing demands of its clients and the times.
The food isn't as good as I expected it to be and the service was so, so. We felt rushed - and we were there supposedly during slow season. The food is your average restaurant grade food - with so much sauce over everything. It seems they're hiding something in the food with all the sauce they pour over the dish! I would not recommend this restuarant to anyone.
My late husband and I visited K-Paul's Louisana Kitchen back in August 1995 and May 1996 and loved it! We ate there two nights in a rowduring each visit. What was good - everything! With Katrina, I'm hopeful the restaurant will be up and running and people can come back to enjoy this wonderful dining experience.
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.
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.
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!
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...
