We were a group of 9 people and the service was very good! The waitress was very friendly and hospitable. Even though we came in too early and had to wait a while for the kitchen to open, everybody was so happy to get complimentary bacon!! (they have a happy hour where they offer that) I have never seen this... More

I have walked by this restaurant a 100 times and always wanted to give it a try. My wife and I stayed in NOLA for the French Quarter Fest and, based on Trip Advisor reviews, finally got a chance to visit. The wine selection was outstanding and we had a great Pinot Noir based on our waitress' suggestion. I tried... More

My wife, friend and I stopped in here for appetizers and drinks at the bar. Great service and overall vibe. The food was super tasty and well plated. Drinks were strong and made from scratch. It appeared filled with locals.

Another night in New Orleans and time for another dining experience! As is my practice, I’d checked this restaurant out via tripadvisor.com. The exterior of Orleans Grapevine Wine Bar and Bistro has a great New Orleans ‘look’ to it! The building was constructed back in 1809… We decided to have our dinner in the courtyard of the restaurant where it... More

BigDaddyDave- After reading your review of our restaurant, I am glad to see that you liked most of the items you ordered. Regarding your comment about the salad being “oily”, I called this to the attention of the chef and he has since fixed the issue. What I am perplexed by is your comment on the pork chop. Our double... More

I was looking for a quiet place to have dinner with my brother during the French Quarter Festival, and the Orleans Grapevine was a great choice! Food was perfect, especially the warm goat cheese salad and the creme brulee. The piano sound track fitted perfectly. I strongly recomend this place.

What else do you need to say? It's exactly what is says, drink discounts and a serving of bacon. Not a huge menu but I had an appetizer of bacon wrapped scallops that were really tasty and their house made sangria was good. My husband actually preferred this place to the little dive bar we visited! Kaitlin was our bartender... More

Amongst the craziness of bourbon street this place is a great find. The happy hour deals are great and the evening food and service is excellent. The choice of wine is also good for anyone who knows their wine. Highly recommend this place.
