BEST BREAD PUDDING IN THE UNIVERSE

I went here with a group of friends for dinner. Everything was incredible. The cheese boards are great. We ordered several desserts for the table and all were delicious, but never, in my life, have I tasted anything like their bread pudding, and I've had desserts all over the world.

I went here with a group of friends for dinner. Everything was incredible. The cheese boards are great. We ordered several desserts for the table and all were delicious, but never, in my life, have I tasted anything like their bread pudding, and I've had desserts all over the world. Do yourself a favor and order that.

Had a lovely evening dinner here. The restaurant was already highly rated and we concur. This restaurant is in the French Quarter right off of Bourbon Street. Food and service was top notch. Highly recommend this restaurant.

But who am I to judge? Gumbo isn't easy, but this stuff... Better tell yo momma to run because you'll want to slap her! Crab stuffed flounder and all things delectable. Great service too.

We went on a Friday night and were able to be seated immediately outside on the amazing patio. Greeted instantly by our fav waitress of the whole trip "Liz" She was educated in the food and made us feel very welcome. Nibbled on the patio for about two hours and it was perfect. Great place....

We had such a wonderful time here. We sat on the lovely patio and had a wonderful waitress named Stephanie. The mussels and BBQ shrimp were amazing. We had some cocktail that ended up being my favorite our entire stay. It was some sort of hibiscus mint drink 😘 Try to go during happy hour for the cups of bacon... More

This was our third trip to New Orleans in the past 4 year's. We have been fooled by the dining establishments that are so called 'the best in Nola' and haven't been impressed. Don't get me wrong we have eaten at some great places but none can have come close to our experience at Orleans Grapevine! They serve bacon instead... More

Smallish bistro with an interesting menu mixing traditional French with modern creole/cajun. There is an outside bit tat he rear, but the interior is far more atmospheric. A lovely meal in a lovely restaurant at a lovely price.
