Awesome gem in New OrleansThis place was awesome from start to finish! Excellent cocktails, soup/salad and entrees. Would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys a great meal without the crowds of the French quarter. Was about a 15 minute taxi ride from our hotel downtown, but totally worth the trip.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe found Apolline throughWe found Apolline through opentable for a Sunday brunch in New Orleans. It's a local place -- not in the Quarter. The food was amazing. Make sure you try the cinnamon bacon. At brunch, they have bottomless mimosas for $8 -- made with prosseco. Quite lovely.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMunder trainedThis was our first time dining at Apolline. We just recently moved to the neighborhood and would enjoy a great neighborhood restaurant to be able to walk to quickly. We sat for almost 10 min before we were greeted by anyone and when the server did approach the table, she never introduced herself and just asked if we wanted something to drink. A good introduction of who you are and the restaurant is when serving a table. The apps came out before we had even ordered the rest of our meal. This caused us to wait 30 min before we received our main entree.
We will try Apolline's again and hopes the staff will be better trained on how to serve their customers. Every dish we consumed was great and we loved the atmosphere of the restaurant!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!"Wine down Wednesday" was fantastic! $20 bottles of wine and $5 wines by the glass. Also loved the food, especially the chocolate pie...would go back for that alone!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery time I eat here, I findEvery time I eat here, I find I like the restaurant more and more. Lamb osso bucco was absolutely delicious.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMSimple and To the PointMy wife and I visit New Orleans annually and are always looking to sample new restaurants. Apolline is so unpretentious from the outside that the cab driver almost passed it buy. Inside, the decor is simple and tasteful, much as I would describe the menu. Our appetizers, entrees and desserts were perfectly executed and the service was top-notch. The wine list was also well-represented and reasonably priced. The owner made it a point to stop by each table and chat with the patrons, which really left a great impression. We will definitely return during our next visit.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMSmall, but good brunch menuMy husband and I took my mother-in-law out to brunch here for her birthday. We loved the ambiance. The atmosphere was great, and the food was too. Service was average. My drink was a bit empty half the time and it was not crowded, but other than that, no complaints! I would go again.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything we ate was deliciousI had been for dinner before, but this was my first time going for brunch. The shrimp and grits appetizer was awesome and the eggs apolline was perfect. The service could be improved.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSpectacularWe have enjoyed the exceptionally creative cocktails at Apolline's bar a couple of times, noshed on highly enjoyable, impressive appetizers. Decided to try the dining room; went with Mother's Day Brunch with the kids. Exceptional experience. Menu was diverse and creative but abundantly approachable by picky middle schoolers. Service and management friendly and attentive. Definitely clicked FAVORITE on Apolline!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat but noisyvery good food excellent limited menu. quite noisy. overall- would go there again easily.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMI am from out of town butI am from out of town but I have been in NOLA three times and went to Apolline three times. Wonderful experience.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, very personableGreat service, very personable waitress and staff. The food was great, I had the gulf fish (grouper) which was good and the other two in my party had the lamb osso bucco and the pork chop, both of which were awesome.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMEmphasis on the wine and foodThis was our first time at Apolline's but it will not be our last. We liked that the menu was small so that the emphasis could be on quality rather than quantity of offerings. The wine list was extensive so that varied tastes could be satisfied. Further the specialty cocktails were fantastic. This is a great place for a special occasion or if you just want to enjoy a really different dining experience.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMUnderstated Gem, refreshing.Understated neighborhood restaurant shines on Magazine.
Serving typical dishes of New Orleans great restaurants- Duck Confit, Scallops, Osso Bucco, Ettoufee...
Classic, but not classic like Arnaud's, ie not oversauced and over salted.
Contemporary but not nouvelle cuisine, not eccentric or terribly inventive
but just true, pure and delicious with top ingredients.
Service was also simplistic and pure, very refreshing and attentive without pandering or being too present.
Cocktail menu is, however, inventive and creative.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service and MenuThe food was delicious. Appetizers and Food were unique although I wish there were more seafood options. Scallops with bacon and gulf fish only leave one true pescetarian option. Gulf fish is good, but rather ordinary. Smoked crab tacos were superb. Cocktail list is amazing! And I appreciate the number of wines available by the glass and half bottle. Would come again.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAppoline was recommended toAppoline was recommended to us by a New Orleans native, and we had a wonderful meal there. We started with the smoked crab tacos, followed by the scallops and each was a taste treat. We finished our meal with a well selected cheese board. Wednesday night is their weekly $20 wine special, and when the bottle we wanted was unavailable, the restaurant very generously substituted a more expensive, unlisted wine of the same varietal. Our server was courteous and helpful throughout. The owner, Keith Andrews, stopped by our table and impressed us with his warmth and devotion to customer service. An overall excellent experience!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceClassic New Orleans cuisine with a modern twist. Great Atmosphere, lighting. I'd come back!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food...quiet atmosphereExcellent food...quiet atmosphere to have a chat. Were able to change the menu up a bit to accommodate our no cheese desire. Only a short cab ride from downtown NO...well worth the journey. As importantly, the young lady running the place provided a wealth of other suggestions for dining in NO! She was very knowledgeable. This place is a winner!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat addition to neighborhood!This a new gem for me.
I will be returning!

We have had brunch at Apolline before and chose it because of the pleasant ambience which allows conversation because the noise level is low. I enjoyed the vegetarian omelet with potato hash which was delicious. My husband also ordered his favorite the crispy chicken with French toast. The service was very attentive and gracious.Our friends were glad wetook them to Apolline4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMy boyfriend and I had dinnerMy boyfriend and I had dinner at Apolline last night and it was so awesome that I brought my brother back to Apolline for dinner tonight.

Very good service, though a little slower after the entree than we liked. Appetizer was just okay, but entrees were delicious. Dessert was also good, but bread pudding would have been better with whisky sauce than caramel, as the latter was too sweet. Both cocktails I tried (Walnut Mahattan & Merriweather) were FABULOUS!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster brunch was truly enjoyable.Easter brunch was truly enjoyable. The food was very tasty and the bottomless mimosa was awesome. Ther service was attentive but not overbearing, just the way I like it.

We already recommended to friends immediately after we left and they went there the next night. We will definitely be back!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBest new restaurant!This is my new favorite restaurant. The variety is impressive. Apolline has restaurant August quality food at half the price. I wanted everything on the menu. This will be my new go-to restaurant from now on. It used to be Coquette, but their prices became way too high and I found that I was always leaving hungry. Apolline is fantastic and I can't wait to go back! The only con is that the tables are a little squeezed in. It is a small place and not a ton of room between tables, but still absolutely worth it. The chocolate dessert was unlike anything I've ever had, like thick chocolate velvet!3/1/2013 12:00:00 AMNew Orleans treasureWe had an great dinner at this lovely restaurant, full of locals with great aromas from the kitchen throughout the dinner. We will definitely return on our next trip to New Orleans.11/24/2012 12:00:00 AM
