Diner Reviews
  • "WE WERE EXCITED TO TRY APOLLINE FOR THE 1ST TIME. ONE PARTY HAD A DELICIOUS MEAL....THE OTHER HAD A DISASTER. THE SHRIMP AND GRITS SMALL PLATE WAS TASTY, BUT THE ANDIOULLE IN IT TASTED LIKE JERKY AND THE SHRIMP WAS NOT DEVEINED. THE SCALLOP ENTREE WAS A DISASTER. THE SCALLOPS WERE FLOATING IN BROTH. IT WAS SERVED WITH 2 TABLESPOONS OF PASTA SO I HAD A BOWL OF BROTH WITH NOTHING TO EAT IT WITH. THANK GOODNESS FOR THE DELICIOS ROLLS OR I WOULD HAVE BEEN VERY HUNGRY WHEN i LEFT."

  • "Went for the 2nd time on 7/5/14. Food was very good, service was good but not great. I love the character of the place. My issue was the extremely casual attire of several guests in the place - tshirts, shorts, sandals, etc. Fine for Golden Corral, not for Magazine. I wish the restaurant could enforce a dress code."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Loved the food. Great Lamb and fun specialty cocktails. Service was really wonderful as well. Prices a little high ($32.00 for a 6 oz steak a bit much, but that is okay. Prices help keep out the rowdy crowd)."

  • "This was my second time here. The first time I was impressed by their flexibility as we stopped by in the middle of a 610 stomper event. They took care of us despite our crazy costumes. This time I celebrated a birthday and they were just as gracious. The food is simple and delicious and the wine list is decent."

  • "Dined in for brunch on a Sunday morning. I had the Eggs Apolline and she had the Chicken and French Toast. The meal was absolutely delicious and the bottomless mimosa hit the spot. Will definitely be back next time we're in New Orleans."

  • "We were the third table sat and by the time the 10th table was sat it started getting sticky. We asked the server if it felt warm in which she replied, a little. This was just about the time we were starting to place our appetizer order. The server said she will try to get them to turn it down but "it's controlled off-site". By the time the entree was served we were miserably sticky hot. I barley ate my meal and could not enjoy the Caymus wine that we brought to celebrate. This is all unfortunate because we heard good things about Apolline. I would suggest giving Managment on site controls of the AC and not micromanage. We may give it another try but there are too many other options to take the chance."

  • "The food was delicious from starters to dessert. Amount of food was adequate to be filling and not too much that dessert had to be skipped. We did split dessert."

  • "My wife and I discovered this restaurant last year and thoroughly enjoyed our experience so we decided to make a return visit. Although our most recent visit included the same great service, we didn't think the food quite matched last year's experience--good but not great. The wine options, although limited, are high-quality."

  • "Great service,friendly, accommodating,and knowledgeable. Great menu and food was delicious. Great wine. Perfect overall experience. Oysters were the best I have ever had."

  • "Would go again. Only drawback for this visit was expensive cab ride from hotel. You can go by RTA bus, but back and forth with wait would be at least one hour. "

  • "We have been to Apolline a number of times and the food an service is always excellent. You can't miss with this one."

  • "Been there twice recently and it is my new favorite restaurant. The pappardelle is fantastic, Try the dirty duck balls for the table. Everything I have tried has been wonderful."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "The food here is very good, although the portions are a bit on the small side. Our server didn't seem real interested in keeping us happy but maybe he was busier than he seemed. Overall, it was a great dining experience. "

  • "Very nice restaurant. Been there many times, always good."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "This was our first time at Apolline and we will return. The duck confit was cooked to perfection. We also tried the sweet potato bisque and the heirloom tomato salad. Both were excellent. It was noisey and hard to hold a conversation. Our waiter was good, but hovered around the table until we were ready to order. Once our food arrived things slowed down and we were able to enjoy our meal. We plan on returning to try some of the other dishes and the brunch menu looked delicious."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "We were deciding between two restaurants, and chose Apolline based simply on the menu items "Dirty Duck Balls" and "Apple Moonshine Cake." While we didn't try either of those dishes, I was thrilled with the ones we did order: Heirloom Tomato Salad (surprisingly flavorful), Coriander Seared Tuna (do yourself a favor and try this), Seared Scallops with Shrimp (perfectly cooked), and sides of grilled mushrooms and smashed red potatoes. They also have a fun cocktail menu. I love restaurants that create new savory cocktails, and the bartender delivered with the Whiskey Smash. My husband loves the classics and is a very harsh judge; he said their Sazarac was spot on perfect. I'm very glad this restaurant is walking distance from our house."

  • "I had dinner at Apolline with three of my friends, and all of us were very impressed with the food and the service. I will definitely recommend it to others."

  • "We always go for Wine Down Wednesdays, where wine is $5 a glass, a generous glass at that. We usually go early evening and sit outside and order only appetizers. My only dining experience was at 9 at night, it was a loud and the food was not what I expected having had such wonderful appetizers . It won't stop me from going again, the staff is great and I do like the neighborhood. Perhaps it was just the time of night. "
    Dined on 4/23/2014
  • "Four of us dined and three had a selection of small plates. The pappardelle were fantastic, al dente and a beautiful sugo, a small gem. That alone is worth the trip. All of the dishes showed great care and attention."
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "We were seated promptly, menu wasn't updated as far as drinks go. Food was done well, short ribs we're fall off the bone tender. Serving size was perfect."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Apolline. The food was outstanding and the service very attentive, especially given the number of diners. We will definitely go back."

  • "The food was delicious and our server was awesome!! She was very knowledgable about the menu and wine list. We had our two-year old with us and the restuarant was loud enough that he really didnt bother anyone (we do take him out a lot so he's fairly well behaved in restuarants for his age. But he's still only two.) but it's definitely not so loud that you cant hold a conversation with your party. Definitely still romantic -- just not at a whisper level. Overall, great dinner and we will definitely be back!"

  • "Very attractive and pleasant dining experience. Food was excellent."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Food was good but it took forever to get food. We had 7:30 dinner reservations and ordered slightly after. We received our appetizers in a timely manner but there was an approximate hour delay between appetizers and dinner."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Really enjoyed my birthday dinner at Apolline. The service was very friendly and attentive but not excessive. Our waiter was great and made informative suggestions. The shrimp and grits appetizer had a wonderful sauce and the grits were so creamy. My husband rated his scallops and shrimp dinner outstanding. But save room for dessert - the chocolate mousse with cake and bread pudding ended the meal perfectly."

  • "After many trips to the quarter we finally found the great little neighborhoods along Magazine St. This restaurant was a perfect bus ride to a quiet but upscale little neigborhood - highly recommend."

  • "A group of us dined at Apolline's on last Sunday night. Everyone throughly enjoyed the meal. The duck confit salad was outstanding. Two of us had the scallops, excellent, and we loved the hidden surprise under the corn maque choux…..bacon. It was a delicious entree. Others had the short ribs and pork chops. All in our party raved about how wonderful every course was including the desserts. We will definitely dine at Appoline's again & again. Thank you Chef Mark for a memorable dining experience."

  • "Ourr 35th wedding anniversary. Service was OK, the sweet potato andouille bisque was good, but I think they cheated by making it so sweet it was like a dessert. My wife had the filet, which she said was outstanding. I had the pork chop, which was so salty I could not eat more than half, and the quality of the meat was supermarket at best. A good chop is marbled like a good steak. If you can't find that, don't serve it. It got so loud my wife said we had to leave. We had eaten at Zea the night before, and had an outstanding meal and service. Apolline did not charge us corkage for the celebration wine we had brought with us, and we appreciated that. Overall, though, I think this restaurant is a wannabe, and needs improvement."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Our waiter, the man with the beard, took about 15 minutes to take our order, even when we put the menus down and weren't talking. He also took a while to clear our plates. This is unacceptable because it was a Tuesday night and the restaurant was not crowded. That being said, the good was good. The oysters were delicious, as was the bread pudding, but my fish lacked flavor."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Our dinner and predinner at the bar was fantastic. An enthusiastic bartender made a great original martini and rye Manhattan . Our meal was extremely well prepared(duck confit and scallops). Only negative but out of their control was difficulty getting cab back to French Quarter during busy convention"
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "The restaurant itself is spectacular. Tables are positioned for good people watching and conversation. Not too loud at all. Seated just upon walking into the door. After being seated, we waited a good 10 minutes before anyone even came to fill our water glasses. It wasn't really all that busy so I'm not sure why the wait. For an appetizer I had the charbroiled oysters. Bland. For my entree I had the beef short rib. Again, bland. I rarely find a need to put salt and pepper on my food, but this food was just so bland. There was a short rib and grits and mushrooms. The mushrooms were tasty, but everything else was so flavorless. All in all, beautiful ambiance and a great time with my pal, but won't be returning for the food."

  • "The menu is limited to three-four items per category, and the wine list is on the smallish side, but wonderful things come out of that kitchen, and there is a wine for every taste and price range. My companion and I both had the heirloom tomato salad; I had fish as my main course, and the other main course was a filet. Both were wonderful. I had the peanut-y dessert (I can't remember the name), and it was one of the best things I have ever eaten. And they have a great cocktail menu with inventive names and combinations. Please go and enjoy!"
