Warm and friendly - excellent food prepared on the 'cutting edge'

When Joanne greets you at Upperline, you enter her space - her art, her ambience, her influence on the staff and the kitchen! It is all enjoyable. The lamb and the duck are my personal favorite entrees and I alternate. Her fried green tomatoes make a fabulous appetizer. The menu temps exploration... read more

This is one of the restaurants you will want to experience while in New Orleans. The menu is quite extensive with many tasting choices that can be mixed to suit you. Ms. Clevenger is a gracious host who aims to make your experience exceptional. The restaurant was off our path during our trip so we used a cab to get... More

A wonderful meal surrounded by beautiful artwork. The staff is attentive, the food delicious. We had to drive here as it was a bit far from our B&B, but it was worth the drive. Parking was easy.

My wife Kathy and I travel to New Orleans for the Mardi Gras festivities on Krewe of Barkus weekend. We first tried Upperline in February of 2006 while the Crescent City's wounds were still raw from Katrina. We had a reservation, but got lost and kept going in circles (the restaurant is Uptown and not in the French Quarter). We... More

We've been here more than a few times and it is ALWAYS good. Professional staff, great tasting and interesting food and the owner JoAnne, who visits with everyone, is delightful. Floor to ceiling art.

An eye catcher to be sure. Upperline is not much to see from the outside, but step inside and you're in a large, personal art collection. It's everywhere you look. But, wait, isn't this a restaurant??? You bet, and it's one of the best deals in town. Three courses for $40, and everything is delicious, some may not be to... More

Used to be one of our top choices when we lived in NOLA. Excellent southern/NOLA food. Garlic fest is also fun, interesting, and different.

I can't get enough of this place. The food is amazing, and the service is top notch. Where else does the owner of the restaurant come to your table and regale you with stories about the food and art? (The place could literally be a gallery.) My favorite dishes are the Cane River Country Shrimp, and for something spicier Shrimp... More
