My boyfriend and I celebrated my birthday with dinner at Grapevine, we had read many great reviews beforehand and we were not disappointed! We got at table in the cozy courtyard, just as we had hoped for. The food was delicious, (my boyfriend is still talking about the Black Angus Filet he had!) and our waitress was really lovely and...

Value-oriented wine at Happy Hour- $3.00 glass for very good quality wine. Apps were good too. The staff were pleasant and up-beat. Casual but classy.

Fantastic food. Two appetisers were plenty to fill us up and the bread served with garlic butter was delicious! Loved the attentiveness and recommendations by the staff too. Definitely a must-go for alternatives to the fried food of the South!

Not well advertised, this is a must for food and wine lovers. We loved the daily happy hour and the meal-sized small plates. The bartender has put together an outstanding and reasonably priced wine list, with offerings at all price levels. The atmosphere is laid-back and the food is phenomenal. We will be back every time we visit New Orleans!

This bistro is an exceptional find. Though it's small there was ample seating and we sat in the inner courtyard. The wine list is probably 5 pages long and exceptionally varied. We had a cheese plate with it that was diverse and delicious. We had some light dinner fare which was all excellent. The service is top notch here too.... More

Happy Hour with bacon? Really, how could you go wrong...... It is 4-6 and 10-12 which we found hilarious. There is a signature drink (ours was a Moscow Mule) for $5 and you can roll the dice for any other cocktail. If you get a 1,2 or 3 that is what you pay. Bacon is served in wine glasses. Sunshine...

This time ion New Orleans we re-discovered this tiny wine bar again and were not disappointed. We ordered the sampler cheese plate and wine by description (told the waitress what attributes I'd like) and we received just what we ordered. If you've never had chocolate cheese - please try it. It is awesome! I highly recumbent you give this place... More

We made reservations for dinner at this restaurant on a tip from a local. When we got there the place was not real big and not a large crowd. I really enjoy lamb when it is prepared right, and was told this place knew how. I will tell you it was fabulous, and served just right. I have been in... More

This place is a hidden gem! Great wine menu and beautiful courtyard! They have an amazing goat cheese salad and their BBQ shrimp are phenomenal! Sunshine is a bartender and her bloody marys are some of the best I have ever had!
