My husband and I stumbled across this restaurant and bar when looking for a quick meal. The food was out of this world. Try the Crab Cakes - amazing; and the seared scallops with mushroom and wild rice. As true to their name they have a wonderful range of wines. Our wait staff were attentive, informative and generally just nice... More

They have a happy hour every day from 4:30 to 7:00. They have great food at happy hour and great salads. Their drinks are cold and the place is nice and clean. Great atmosphere.

Let the wife and daughter go shopping and people watching. Took a stroll to see what I could find. First found Cresent City Cigar Shop where the owner Armando turned me on to a great smoke, I asked him where I should go to enjoy it, by chance right next door is this hidden gem. Interior patio with ferns, palm... More

Food was quite good. Great little courtyard out back. Definitely a ‘casual’ fine dining experience. Happy, relaxed atmosphere.

Relaxed in the courtyard savoring baked brie, a loaf of hot french bread and a bottle of wine. Didn't need dinner after that.

If you like to sit outside and relax whilst enjoying a delicious meal this is the place for you. Nice planting and a little fountain in the middle of a courtyard with traditional New Orleans style balconies over looking from the building. Wonderful atmosphere.

This is my favorite wine bar in the French Quarter. They also have a great menu! Bartenders "Shine" and "Gerald" are excellent! You might even get a chance to meet the owners Pam and Earl who are frequently there for dinner.

This lovely bistro was opposite our hotel and our favourite eating place. Beautiful food, excellent service. Will be the first place we dine when we return to the French Quarter.

It was an OK place to eat. The food was good, but we thought to be expensive for theportion size. The service was just OK.

Thanks for coming in. We are glad you enjoyed our food. Our portions and our prices are very generous and reasonable compared to other fine dining restaurants in the city. Our chef makes sure of this. All most all of our guests find the Grapevine exceptional in every aspect. We are sorry you didn't feel the same. More

Located right across from our hotel we enjoyed "happy hour" on our first evening in NOLA. We were tired from travelling but our server Donna made us perk up and feel welcome right away. Next night we went for dinner and our server, Bennett was also great. It became our spot for happy hour and also to close our evening... More
