Definitely a Top Ten Dining Experience

This place is such a find. It's in the French Quarter, upscale yet not truly expensive. It has a courtyard and was exactly what we were looking for from our New Orleans dining experience. We brought our kids here, and while you get the feeling they don't have that many children, they did a great... read more

We were staying just across Orleans from this restaurant and kept seeing the sign for Bacon Happy Hour. Of course, we missed that but look forward to making it on our next trip. The ambiance was nice and the staff very good. Food was delicious.

Wasn't sure where to grab our first bite in New Orleans but we were glad we chose this place. It's a real gem, just like everyone else is saying. The service couldn't have been better. Our server was fantastic and kept us full on water and the food came quickly as well. We ate out in the courtyard and it's... More

We sat in the lovely back courtyard and enjoyed two salads, the bacon wrapped scallops and a round of Brie with both a garlic mustard dip and a sweet strawberry sauce. Two glasses of wine, bread, and finally a dessert of goat cheese cheesecake, all served by knowledgeable a friendly waitstaff made for a lovely evening. Highly recommend this place!

The staff at the Bourbon Orleans recommended this quaint wine bar with a charming patio area and it was the best meal of my trip! GREAT service and a super wine list; wine flights during happy hour! Don't miss the mussels topped with crabmeat and the warm goat cheese salad. Delicious!

We recently tried this restaurant based on the good reviews on TA. They were correct. This is a low key gem of a restaurant. They have seating inside and out, we chose the courtyard and it was lovely, including a fountain and orchids. Our waitress, Hannah, was wonderful, she was helpful and friendly but not overbearing. We started by sharing... More

It's a quaint little spot that I've past up several times before. Thankfully on my last trip to NOLA I stopped in and it was amazing! First of all they have a BACON happy hour from 4-6pm daily and then again from 10pm-midnight. The happy hour drink prices are a great deal, a bottle of red wine for $18 dollars... More
