This authentic French restaurant used to be a neighborhood gem. Unfortunately, the owners decided to close the restaurant shortly after New Years 2017!

Very nice French bistro restaurant. The location is within a residential area which made it quaint, comfortable and relaxing. The food was remarkable and the service was quality. Nice place for a date night or to experience an elegant night out for a special occasion.

Chateau du Lac is a hidden gem in Old Metairie. One of my favorite restaurants in New Orleans & I'm local. Incredible menu and staff.

Mother's Day outing for 6 turned well enough but I found the food not to be the commensurate with the prices. 3 Sea Scallops for about $30? Tasty but another couple scallops would have been nice. They offered a "Teres Major" on the menu without...More

Don't waste your time or money. $16 for a side salad with 3 medium sized shrimp. Creme brûlée so burnt and warm it was inedible and more like the consistency of soup. Probably won't be back.
