I stayed on in New Orleans after my meetings had ended. I was looking for an authentic New Orleans experience for dinner in a casual environment. I found it at the Orleans Grapevine tucked away off the beaten path in the Quarter. The staff was warm, friendly and attentive. Seafood Gumbo was full of flavor, BBQ shrimp was delicious and the crab cakes were packed with crab and had little filler. I dined in their courtyard and had a fantastic experience. The Grapevine proves that old world charm still exists in the French Quarter.

Just across the street from the Bourbon Orleans Hotel is some of the best food you will find in the Quarter. They got us in with the $5 wine happy hour but when we saw the food we came back to eat. What a find! The food is D-licious. Beautifully balanced flavors, fresh ingredients, interesting combinations, and reasonable prices. I had Nola style bbq shrimp that is one of the best dishes I've ever had anywhere. We ordered a selection of appetizer dishes and each one generated a wow (how often does that happen?) Somehow they work this magic out of a kitchen the size of a closet. Our service was perfect, attentive and professional (thanks Ron!). Lovely outdoor dining in addition to inside. Amazingly this little oasis is only a half block off Bourbon St. You need to try this place, but do it early in your stay so you have time to come back!

A great intimate setting with fabulous food and a lovely atmosphere, right in the heart of The French Quarter, on a quiet side street half a block off of Bourbon Street on Orleans, across from the Bourbon Orleans Hotel. After a very disappointing meal at a well known down town restaurant we went just across the street from our hotel for a glass of wine at their happy hour and it turned out to be one of our favorite places to eat. Quiet, clean and
friendly it features friendly and efficient staff, a great bar tender, and a wonderful menu. We thought we would be getting pub food but not so....gourmet New Orleans dishes that surprised and delighted us. The menu features small plates as well as standard sized entrees....all that New Orleans menus are famous for. Fabulous Gumbo, great seafood dishes and when we complemented our server on the kitchen's fine fare the chef came out to meet us and was just as gracious as New Orleans folks are noted to be. We dined there twice in two days and plan to go back for their late night (10-12 PM) happy hour to partake of a late night
snack. This fine eating establishment calls itself a Wine bar but it is so
much more....it is fine dining in a casual atmosphere. The heated back garden court yard is a pure delight...what a find!

The food was delicious! I had the redfish and lentils and it was so yummy! Our server was friendly, helpful and efficient. The others in our group ordered the steak, and the portions seemed a little light, but they said it was real tasty. A little over priced, but would go back.

Had been on a food tour earlier in the day and was looking for something light (although larger meals are available). This was a perfect place; very peaceful and cute, a nice contrast to Bourbon St. The food was excellent and our server was so pleasant and welcoming. Would happily return if we ever went back to NOLA.
