Ok, first up, let me admit I wasn’t appreciating New Orleans. Instead of fantastic music and a chill scene I was just finding it a tourist trap, with people there for nothing more than to get drunk. I was so disappointed. And then a friend...More

Don't be fooled by the exterior and desolate area when you arrive. It's a wine shop with a large garden round the back where you can enjoy your bottle with some jazz all afternoon. really enjoyed the vibe away from the tourist spots in French...More

I agree. You can buy a reasonably priced bottle of wine and get an appetizer or two and it will be an inexpensive day out. With entertainment. We were ten women so our bill was higher and we had drinks and dinner.

No reservations, but it's worth the wait! My recommendation is to go early. We were there at 6pm on a Saturday and found a table fairly quickly. Was great to see it in the daylight and at dark.
