I was in New Orleans for 6 days and I went twice to this restaurant it was so good. It is reasonably priced, the portions are a good size and the food is cooked well with lots of flavour.

We stopped in for a glass of wine (after having dinner at another restaurant) on our first night in New Orleans. The bartender was super nice and friendly. After seeing some of the meals coming out of the kitchen, we decided that we would come back another night for dinner. We went back on our last night in town and... More

My husband and I were looking for something quaint and a little quieter than the hustle and bustle of Bourbon one night of our trip. Orleans Grapevine was the perfect spot. It had a great wine list and we were seated at a table in the corner (too hot that night to be in the courtyard). We ordered the cheese... More

I went here for my birthday celebration and a romantic night out with the hubby. We sat in the courtyard. We greeted by all the friendly staff once we arrived. We went during happy hour which is 4-6. They offer $18 notes of select wine and $14 flights. We got the bottle of cab I've had better cabs but for... More

It's not touristy and away from all the Bourbon Street madness. Everything about this place is pretty perfect- especially if you have food allergies or sensitivities. They understand and will work with you on food preparation. Drinks are no joke! So if you have 2 hours or so to relax and enjoy food and drinks made with love, go to... More

My husband and I stopped in on a whim and fell in love with Orleans Grapevine! Nick, Liz, Jen, and the rest of the staff were delightful company for an evening of wine and snacks. The bar and restaurant are emaculately clean and the ambience is an old world New Orleans wine cellar. We ordered the crab cakes and mussels... More
