“Just what I was looking for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

Let the wife and daughter go shopping and people watching. Took a stroll to see what I could find. First found Cresent City Cigar Shop where the owner Armando turned me on to a great smoke, I asked him where I should go to enjoy it, by chance right next door is this hidden gem. Interior patio with ferns, palm trees and a fountain. Had the cabernet flight and the baked brie with strawberry and balsamic jam. Yum! Off the beaten path and hustle of bourbon. The menu looks great for dinner and the wine list is extensive. I will be back. Chelsea my server was polite and knowledgeable.

“Nice Courtyard”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014

Food was quite good. Great little courtyard out back. Definitely a ‘casual’ fine dining experience. Happy, relaxed atmosphere.

“Great Happy Hour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

Relaxed in the courtyard savoring baked brie, a loaf of hot french bread and a bottle of wine. Didn't need dinner after that.

“Outdoor dining.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014

If you like to sit outside and relax whilst enjoying a delicious meal this is the place for you. Nice planting and a little fountain in the middle of a courtyard with traditional New Orleans style balconies over looking from the building.
Wonderful atmosphere.

“My favorite Wine Bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

This is my favorite wine bar in the French Quarter. They also have a great menu! Bartenders "Shine" and "Gerald" are excellent! You might even get a chance to meet the owners Pam and Earl who are frequently there for dinner.
