This place is fantastic!!!! During our recent visit to NOLA, we stopped by to grab a cocktail as it was right across from our hotel, The Bourbon Orleans. The wine list is extensive and the bartenders know their wines and were able to make delicious selections based on our tastes. Happy Hour includes BACON!!! I was very surprised how well... More

I've been to this bar several times because the bartender Shine is one of my favorites in the city. They have a great wine selection and she makes WONDERFUL cocktails (concoctions she calls them). She is continuously inviting me back to have dinner at one of the courtyard tables and I always mean to but it never happens. Now I... More

What a great evening! The food, wine selections and service are all excellent! All that and the ambiance of true New Orleans French Quarter - the building has a great history and the player piano provided the perfect touch. Stephanie (our server) was welcoming, personable and very knowledgeable about the menu. We started with wine flights and the cocktail of... More

On our 6th and last night of the trip this wonderful restaurant was recommended. I myself was pretty much gumboed out. The food was priced right, excellent for all 4 of us and Thom the waiter made our experience great. Wish we had found Thom and Orleans Grapevine earlier in the trip!!!!

Chef Dan's crab and oyster stuffed salmon was beyond outstanding! Plus there were gluten free options with a range of prices. The selection of wine was impressive. The staff were friendly and charming. The vibe was casual and relaxed. I am planning to return with friends before I leave and would highly recommend you try this one! Elizabeth

We were seated immediately in the bar area as the table we requested in the courtyard wouldn't be available for about fifteen minutes. If you like wine as we do you will be amazed at the wide selection to choose from. We were pleased to find our favorite California Zinfandel on the list it is appropriately called Earthquake. Try it... More

We happened to go during Happy Hour. They have a wonderful selection of wines by the glass and bottle available at reduced prices during Happy Hour. We ordered the hot brie cheese which was awesome. They also give you warm loaves of bread. Very yummy. The service was friendly and excellent.
