Excellent food and service. The noise level was nearly unbearable. We had four people at our table and could not carry on a conversation. As the restaurant filled up, the noise level just increased and increased. I left with a headache. While the food was as good as any I’ve ever had and out waitress was truest outstanding, I definitely will not return until something is done about the noise level. It’s just not acceptable to spend $250 for 4 and not be able to carry on a conversation.

Delicious and worth another visit. The Eggs appoline and praline bacon were divine, the endless mimosas were perfectly refreshing Food was fresh and atmosphere calm, clean and welcoming. Blaine was the beat server, attended to every request, no delays from ordering to eating, where many places in New Orleans have a long delay. Blaine had a great attitude and very knowledgeable. Definitely should not miss a visit to Appolines on magazine street. A++

Booked this place because my friend who lives in Baton Rouge told me to try it. Looked it up, menus looked amazing, the atmosphere did too. We were all just kind of disappointed though. Started off great. Our server was super friendly and we could tell he was working hard, but between our first course and second course it took maybe 45 minutes to an hour. I understand it's a saturday night and it was very full, but I was expecting better. I can't speak for the whole table, but my food didn't even come out hot, it was luke warm so it wasn't the best considering it was fried. Prosecco was good, bread was warm and good but the $45 3 course dinner disappointed me. I would have ordered something cheaper if I had not had my expectations so high. Not sure I'd come back here again if I was in Nola again just because there is so many fancy and good restaurants for probably cheaper.

First the positives - the cocktails were wonderful, wine was great, and the space inside is really nice. They were understaffed, but I blame that on Covid and they tried very hard and all people there were quite nice.

However, the food wasn't as good as we expected. My husband's lamb was very dry and pretty small, and my grits for my shrimp and grits were more like a blob and again very dry. The bread they served seemed almost like a toasted hot dog bun, and the butter came in individual packets which was fairly bizarre.

If friends wanted to go back again then we would go with them, but would not initiate it on our own. It's really hard to write a review because I know Covid has changed so many things, but we also spent some good money and there are other places to try at this price point.

The family enjoyed the Coolinary experience last night. The vegetable sides for the table were great. Friendly, prompt wait-staff. The titles given to their mixed adult beverages were true ice-breakers to begin the evening. Excellent wine list. Recommend reservations as all tables were occupied.

Getting together with friends. Unfortunately the AC wss on the fritz and the place was packed for the first night of Coolinary. It was really uncomfortable! The lack of adequate staff was understandable.The long wait times would have been mire pleasant if it wasn’t so hot!

The waitstaff was competent but understaffed. The salad dressing was acidic and poorly flavored. The fish was dry and partly old or spoiled.

very disappointed. hostess should have some personality-none present not even a smile or welcome.. waited outside for table to be set, hostess informed us that they would let us know when ready. did not.
service less than acceptable-had to wait over 20 minutes for 2nd cocktail, had to ask for water refill twice, after food was delivered server went MIA, asked hostess for water-all they did was track down the waiter when the water pitcher was less that 25 steps away. food was adequate nothing to brag home about. was not offered dessert at end of meal. this was not our 1st time there. returned because of amazing food and service last time. would not return again. food & service should be consistent not hit or miss.

I am from Louisiana, but this was my first time dining at Apolline. Truly the best shrimp and grits I have ever had. The dining room was upbeat, great background music, beautiful paintings that I wanted to take home, and superior service. We will definitely be back.
