This wine garden is attached to the beer garden. It is a great atmosphere where you can sit inside or outside. Their options for wine is large with a happy hour with a few select wines 5 dollars. They also serve food but with no...vegan option. Was able to adapt the cauliflower to be vegan but it could have used more seasoning. Now my husband who isn’t vegan loved his tacos. Will def go back for the wine and atmosphereMore

This spot is very versatile. You can sit solo or reserve a space for a group of friends or colleagues. I come here a lot to sit and work on my computer, or write in my journal, and stick around later in the day to...catch up with friends over a carafe of Red Sangria. (It does the trick!) both sides, beer and wine garden have good food. If you don’t like what one side has to offer, the other side is just a walk across the courtyard away. I hear their burgers are great! But overall this is a place to be for gatherings especially during football season. Crawfish is also available to purchase when in season, very tasty! Everything you need, right here. You could stick here for hours on hours meeting cool new people on a nice day in Nola. 1pm to 8 easy!More

Great location! There is a wine bar and a beer bar. Great place to socialize, watch sports, hang out, talk and make friends. A great neighborhood friendly bar. Second time here and I love this place. The prices are super reasonable.

Definitely a young crowd on the weekend. Great for a group if some want beer and others want wine as it's connected to the Bayou Beer Garden in the driveway. Not the place to go if you want a place to carry on conversations.

Very disappointed. The food was so so but the wait staff was bad. I felt that they thought they were doing me a favor. We had to order at the bar and pay ahead and waited for a long time for our food to be...brought to us. No refill on waters. I would not come here again. The Rally down the street had better service and food.More

To start off, who came up with fried avocado? It's brilliant! I went to Bayou Wine Garden during Mardi Gras. I was able to get a seat by the bar, which was very nice... although as time passed the seats were filled. The bartender was...friendly and informative. I didn't want too large of a meal, and he recommended the tacos, and I ordered one with shrimp and Asian inspired components, which was very good, however the other, with fried avocado, remoulade and greens was absolutely divine! The crust was crisp and well seasoned, and when I bit into it, the avocado was soft and full of flavor. I think that they could create an appetizer just of fried avocados with remoulade. My mouth is presently watering thinking about it, and it's been a few months since I first tasted it. I look forward to revisiting Bayou Wine Garden when I return to NOLA in May.More

This spot is off the beaten path and was a recommendation by a local. When I think "wine bar" I usually think quiet, big comfy chairs and maybe a fireplace. This spot is anything but. This is a bar that has wine. A really nice...wine list with several on tap. They also have beer and mixed drinks. The bar staff is top notch - very friendly, helpful and knowledgable about everything they serve. The inside space is small but not uncomfortable. They do have an outdoor space that looked lovey but was completely full. As I understand it, they share that space with the Beer Garden which is on the other side of the patio. We had several cheeses and meats along with the cheese & chorizo wontons and were not disappointed with anything. Our bar server did talk us into upgrading one of our cheese selections and we were so glad she did - it's well worth the additional $2. I enjoyed the white seasonal sangria and then then a glass of rose. My husband had a couple of Manhattan's and was very happy with how they were prepared. This is a busy spot for a good reason and worth the trip.More

This place is a really nice spot in the Mid City neighborhood for drinks and dinner or just appetizers. They have both sparkling wines, reds and whites on tap which is unique. The food was also very good. I had the parmesean fries and pate...and both were really good. The patio with the fountain was also really lovely. will go here again and again.More

This little gem is hidden in a cool neighborhood in Mid-City. Great selection of wines, both in bottles and on tap. The Cool courtyard is connected to the Bayou Beer Garden! Great fun and great food too!

This is a gem of a spot inside the city of New Orleans. You can't rave enough about its wines in tap from around the world and cured meats. A very nice tapas menu. Adjacent to its sister property bayou beer garden

Happy with the surroundings. Food was fresh and tasty. Beer was good and cold. I have my first chocolate beer ever. Sure wish I had taken a picture of the bottle. Anyone know the name of it?

This restaurant joins a growing list of similar bars and restaurants in the city that cater to a wine/foodie crowd and therefore incorporate aspects that may induce excitement in some diners or an eye roll from others. You can probably figure out which category I...fall into. Is it in a swanky renovated shotgun? Check. House made charcuterie? Check. Exotic menu ingredients and long descriptions? Check. Obligatory Banh Mi offering? Check. Obligatory pork belly offering? Check. Huge wine list? Well, it is a wine bar. Check. Not all of this is bad, mind you, just nothing new. Let's get the bad news out of the way so I can end on a high note. The menu has interesting takes on such mundane things as ceasar salad, fritters, (done-to-death) savory cheesecake.....what we had was good but not great and not really an improvement on the basics. I don't quite understand the need to swank out all of the dishes. Cold smoked shrimp (on the salad) is an interesting foodie touch but gives the shrimp an odd almost raw texture, taking away one of the best features of shrimp in my opinion. And they didn't seem to have a smoky taste. Also the smoked shrimp salad dressing was blindingly hot. My wife and I can eat some pretty hot stuff so we had no problem finishing it but I would imagine if that is the usual recipe that some of these salads may get sent back. I ordered some crispy duck skin bruschetta that arrived with a healthy portion of duck skin but it was kinda soggy and not crispy at all. Flavor was OK but missing the main point of duck skin. Fritters were bland, I forgot what the ingredients were but weren't particularly noteworthy at any rate. First batch of fritters was still liquid in the middle so they were sent back and replaced with another order that then looked like they were left in the fryer a little too long. Smoked shrimp cheesecake was excellent however, and a decent portion, done up like a souffle in a big ramekin. If I come back I will order this with a good glass of white wine. I wasn't a fan of the food overall. Also the Cuban sandwich is $15.50. Yeah I get it, duck ham, etc. But still. I have seen so many menus like this in the last few years that reading them now just makes me tired. This menu feels thrown together from a list of must-have ingredients that are all the rage right now. And now to the good stuff. The place is rustic and comfortable and has a beautiful patio outside. And there are tons of wines to choose from along with craft cocktails. Happy hour is the time to hit a place like this if you can. Come on a nice afternoon when you can sit outside. Try the cheesecake, its good.More

I love this place all year round but when the weather cools a little, their patio is delightful. Fall means the return of the oyster bar, plus oyster tacos. They have a great selection of wines on tap and the food is delicious. Try the...charcuterie board or the smoked shrimp salad. It's a short street car ride from the French Quarter if you are visiting our city.More

A really fun and relaxed deck outside and rustic wood interior that features 30+ wines by the glass out of keg, so always fresh. The small plates of charcuterie are ll house-made and the staff is very cool and knowledgable
