    Good service; food was fresh and tasty. The tea was good as well. I only regret that I did not order the lunch special, which was a drum fish dish that sounded yummy. The atmosphere was just quiet enough for easy conversation during lunch.

    We recently visited New Orleans for a week, and found Capdeville through Open Table; it ended up being one of the best meals of our trip. It's in a rather quiet neighborhood - somewhat of a food desert - so we were pleasantly surprised when we stepped inside and found a hip yet cozy atmosphere. For a Thursday night, it was pretty dead - one other group was there - but our server was attentive and the food was great. The grilled cheese with tomato soup was a delicious twist on an old favorite; the soup had a surprise addition of fennel. The poutine fries and chicken were also popular with our group. It's not the most vegetarian or gluten-free friendly spot, but the kitchen seemed flexible with special requests.

    This restaurant/bar continues to impress. Great poutine and salads and dishes made with fresh local products keep me coming back. Wonderful staff and a great beer selection help, too! Soups are fantastic and their burger is right up there with the best of them.

    Great little place to go!! It was filled with 20 something's, so if you are older, you may not want to be there late at night! It's a small place so make sure you reserve a seat ahead. Seated right away, great service, and really great artwork!! The wallpaper and pictures is eclectic and awesome!! You'll definitely have a lot to look at! Great food, big portions, and a lot of non-traditional foods to try out!! Alligator is one of the best!

    This is a great spot for an excellent meal, just a shot walk in the opposite direction from the mayhem of Bourbon Street. Have the thrill of eating among the locals! The food is excellent, the service perfect, the prices are reasonable. Just note that the noise level is rather high, and if you're over 30, it probably isn't the music you would choose for dinner...but it's not enough of a complaint to ruin a wonderful meal.

    After a friendly welcome, we were seated quickly. We ordered a hot dip appetizer, strawberry salad, truffled Mac n cheese, steak frites and cocktails. Everything was delicious! The service was friendly, relaxed, yet very efficient. However the best part of the evening was dessert. We ordered the espresso creme brûlée. We consider ourselves "experts" in the field of creme brûlée and this was the BEST ever! We could've eaten several more. If we lived in NOLA, we would be regulars here.

    If you are tired of seafood and Cajun food, come to Capdeville, a locals place. We had a delicious dinner of shrimp and chorizo tacos, home made chips, fried red beans and rice, and strawberry and duck wontons. This last item sounds strange, but it was fantastic. My wife drank a couple of whiskey smashes, which are something like a mojito, only made with whiskey, and she raved about them. The barmaid put the ice in a towel and smashed it with a hammer. The servers were all cute young ladies, and the service was friendly and attentive. We enjoyed this place and will be back. Capdeville is fun and a nice change of pace.

    My husband and I dined here for lunch right when the restaurant opened on a Thursday. The server was very attentive and our meal was delish! I had the pimento cheese, tomato and bacon sandwich and be he had the truffle Mac and cheese with fried oysters. When we are next back in New Orleans we will be sure to make it there. Amazing!!!

    My wife and I made a reservation last night for Capdeville. I booked it on my phone at about 10:15PM for a 10:30PM reservation. We had just finished at a theater event and wanted to get a good dinner before heading home. When we arrived for our reservation, we were told that the kitchen was closed because things hadn't been that busy that night. If they were planning to close the kitchen, then we simply shouldn't have been allowed to make this reservation. However, we were allowed to make the reservation and were extremely disappointed when we arrived and it wasn't honored. The staff didn't seem at all concerned or apologetic. This has definitely changed our opinion of Capdeville. I'm not sure that we'll be returning.

    I was staying at Le Pavillon and looking for something low key and moderately priced. I was impressed with the food here, I had the red beans and rice appetizer, the truffled mac and cheese, and apple fritter bread pudding - all were fantastic. It was nice to try some local beer as well. Highly recommend to travelers looking for something different.

    This was a first time in NOLA and this was the first restaurant we tried. If we did not eat at any other place in NOLA, I would say we had an excellent meal. But after several other experiences I would say Capdeville is just very good. Our meals did not have the rich, flavor tastes we expected. But overall the meal was good and the price was very reasonable.

It's the kind of place where you can pretty much wear anything from casual to dressy and not feel out of place. Prices were very reasonable and everything was good.

    Capdeville had been on my list for a long time, and I'm so glad I finally went. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal. For appetizers, we had the fried red beans and rice and truffle mac and cheese. Our entrees were the drum and the steak frites. We split the pecan pie for dessert. And we each had a glass of red wine. All this for well under $100 (not including tip.) I can't remember our waiter's name, but he was wonderful. Very enthusiastic and accommodating. Can't wait to return.

    Capdeville is a small restaurant located in the CBD. Our experience was good overall. Parking is a bit of a challenge on the weekends. Other than that everything was pretty quick and easy. Definitely a restaurant that attracts younger crowds. The service was mediocre, but the food and ambiance were great. Perfect place for an affordable date night or small group!

    This was a really great find! We were only in town for a couple of nights and were looking for a late dinner. The hostess was very friendly and the restaurant wasn't very packed. All of the tables were celebrating the holidays and everyone was in a great mood. The menu was limited, but each of the items we ordered was very tasty. I would definitely say this place is for the more adventurous food-wise, but even my picky father enjoyed his food. I would definitely stop by again on my next trip to New Orleans!

    we have gone about 6 times since you opened for great bar food and some restaurant fare, but I have to say everything we had was pretty mediocre. the tomato-basil soup was like a sauce and so thick we wished we would have brought our own pasta. the steak/frites was OK, at best - steak a bit overcooked and cut up for us as if we were 6 years old and the fries which used to be crispy were pretty flaccid and some cooked better than others with a heavy cheese which made them even more soggy. one of us had the roasted vegetable s which were equally as bad and oddly flavored for some reason. don't waste your time until there is a new chef at this place.

    For our first visit to NOLA, we were lucky to find this small restaurant in the middle of town. With a giant festival in town, most other highly recommended restaurants were packed. Capdeville is located on a little side street, so they don't have much walk-by traffic. We had to look for it, but were glad to find it! The food was great and the service was friendly and efficient. The only "down side" was the jukebox playing really loud hard rock...it just didn't fit the dinner we were having. I'd definitely go back!
