Staff was terrific. Chef even made shrimp & grits special order without tomato, and it was amazing. Would go back again & again if we lived in town. Each course better than the next.

I got the lamb, and it was grossly under-seasoned and turned to paste in my mouth. The veggies were fine, but everything on my plate was a shade of gray. My girlfriend ordered the steak (medium rare), and it was so dry I couldn't even...More

   We are sorry you had a bad experience.      You said the lamb wasn't seasoned but this is how it is prepared:      It is cooked by the Soux Vie which guarantees its tenderness. Then it is finished off in the oven to the...More

Your experience at the Grapevine was out of the ordinary. The bacon strips you mentioned are not really appetizers. We give this out free to our customers during our Happy Hour. In Louisiana, we call that lagniappe - which means “something extra”. As for the...More

In reference to the smudge you found on your wine glass, this was a misfortune. We have a superior wine glass cleaning system. They are all washed in a complicated sanitizing Auto-Clor machine. Then the glasses are polished on a special machine which makes sure...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
