I may not go back for lunch - and that is really sad for me. I have loved this restaurant for years, but the last time I was there was not pleasant at all. And the selection at lunch has steadily declined - only a few choices available and no popovers!

Roxy is a terrific server and Marcel mixes the best drinks in Memphis. We love the variety and quality of food and especially love the piano music in the lobby each night. Not a more romantic place in the city!

Love this place, especially the popovers! I've been coming to Paulette's for 20 years, since they were in midtown, but I love the Harbor Town setting and the proximity to the river. Many of the great servers followed them to Harbor Town, and also their terrific menu. A great place for dinner or Sunday brunch. A Mother's Day tradition in... More

We ate here on a Sunday night and it was surprisingly busy, so I would definitely recommend making reservations. We both had the arancini to start with, which were delicious. I then had an appetizer salad as my main dish, which was very tasty and OH had the chicken, which was delicious. It is on the pricey and formal side... More

I always have an enjoyable experience when dining at Paulette's! The service is very attentive and polite. The food is exceptional! The salmon is one of my favorites served with a delicious medley of seasonal vegetables. I also cannot resist one of their fresh salads to start. The popovers served with strawberry butter is unbelievable! The atmosphere is elegant and... More

We went to Paulette's to celebrate our 10 yr wedding anniversary. The atmosphere was wonderful, especially since we enjoyed watching the sunset over the river from our booth. The appetizer was amazing as was our entrees (pork chop and filet). And our waitress, Jamie, was absolutely wonderful. She was personable and professional, and we hope we get her again when... More
