Capdeville is a great little out of the way spot which I recommend any NOLA fan should find! It was a short cab ride from the Doubletree on Canal and North Peters. We had reservations at 8 pm on a Thursday and we had our kids with us so I was concerned that it would be too "bar-ish" for them.... More

Per the wife, the shrimp tacos were fabulous! (5*). My burger was only good, but satisfying (3*). The truffle fries were a dud, not particularly hot, heavy, disappointing (2*). A drink (1881) was disappointingly weak. On balance, not bad, but the fries and drink left a downer impression. TripAdvisor should change 3 stars to "Good." Average is a mathematical characteristic... More

My nephew who just graduated from Loyola works there. We're regular visitors to New Orleans and know the city quite well, but had never heard of Cap De Ville before. This is a small restaurant. it seemed to be filled with locals. Mainly younger. Probably from the NOLA Entrepreneurs' office next door. The drink menu is little, but filled with... More

I went there based on the prior reviews stating that it was a "hidden gem" and I have to agree. It's on quiet capdeville street and it is an oasis from the "in your face", rowdy atmosphere that can be New Orleans. The menu is upscale pub food and it's different. I went there at the tail end of happy... More

We ate here after a long day of touring Nola. We shared a house salad with chicken, which was delicious. I had grilled drum and my companion had fish tacos. Both entrees were fresh and yummy. Service was outstanding and the owner or manager stopped by to check on our food. We will definitely return.

Tucked away on a side street near Lafayette Square is this bistro/pub. It is small and cozy with atmosphere. A limited menu but everything is fresh, local and well prepared. A good wine list and a wide ranging beer list. Go early or late for lunch (11-2:30) or dinner (5:30 til).

Just off busy Magazine Street on a one block street is hidden a small gem of N.O. dining. Attentive staff, good food and drink and a quiet environment. Excellent Bloody Mary. Impressed when my water glass was nearly empty, the manager brought a fresh glass -- these are details folks like me who think melted ice has an unpleasant taste... More

Cozy, nice little meeting room/pub, with unexpected and better than average menu for a reasonable price. As I said we had "poutine" as an appetizer and it stacked up to Canadian "poutine" which we recently enjoyed. My husband had the clam chowder and the duck confit club, which he really couldn't finish but he was not leaving it behind. As... More

Capdeville is one of the few restaurants I have been to where I feel just as comfortable sitting at the bar to eat as sitting at a table. I am absolutely in love with their mac and cheese (made for grown-ups). Their burgers are also quite tasty, and the service is really excellent. This is a keeper on our list... More
