The food is excellent. The quail breast appetizer is enough for an entree. The oysters are exceptional. Great scallops and fish.
For brunch I love the enchiladas and eggs Apolline.
The bartender is very good and can make drinks to suite your taste. She also has "specials" that are delightful.

Prior to this ,we always enjoyed this restaurant very much. On V Day we were
surprised to find the quality and to some extent the quantity was OK but not special or excellent . I had lamb shank and it was dry and just not succulent. My husband had a pork chop and the taste was good
But the portion was inadequate.

The ambience and service are very good, although our server could have checked in with us sooner after food service to ensure all was OK. Our only serious quality issue was that our andouille pork was charred to a distasteful crisp on the underside. Once we had a chance to alert our server at the next course, the plate was replaced very quickly. The only other issue was the broth for the mussels was very thin and tasted of wine and not much else, not having been reduced adequately. The mussels themselves were very good. The pork chop and filet we had as our main dishes were outstanding, as was the bread pudding - nice and crisp and not too sweet or drowned in sauce. The Remedy Lane cocktail - tequila/mezqal - was delicious with only a hint of the mezqal - highly recommended!

We were here celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary! Our server, Lydia, took amazing care of us. I had the Salmon and my wife had their soft shelled crab special! Both meals were very flavorful and amazing! We shared the bread pudding for desert and it did not disappoint. The ambiance and atmosphere were perfect for our celebration!

One of our new favorite places. Everything was amazing from the service to cocktails to our meals. Loved the references to all the cocktail names and were probably some of the best we’ve had in town. Food was incredible, will have to go back to try the entrees we didn’t order this time. Felt very comfortable inside as the tables were spaced out and not overcrowded.

I honestly had one of the best dining experiences I have ever had at Apolline. The service was impeccable and the food was absolutely delicious. I went on new year’s eve, not knowing there was a fixed menu. I let the waiter know that I’m vegetarian so I’d just eat the sides/whatever didn’t have meat/fish. He quickly responded that he would talk to the chef and they’d figure out a way to make every course vegetarian for me. They made a 5-course, specialized vegetarian meal that was creative as well as almost unbelievably scrumptious. The presentation was also impressive! I can’t recommend this place enough.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal on Christmas Eve. The staff was friendly and very knowledgeable about the food and wine pairing. Tables were spaced apart and everyone was wearing masks, some standouts were the Chicken Poutine appetizer and the lamb on the Reveillon menu. We even had a mix up with our reservation and Frank called me back the night before and told me they’d find a way to get us a table because he didn’t want us to have no place to go on Christmas Eve. The table was perfect and we didn’t feel rushed at all. Great meal all around! We’ll definitely be back!

We went for appetizers and stayed for Shrimp and Grits! We started out with the grille oysters, they had a wonderful sweet and savory bacon with them. The mussels were delicious and luckily we saved our bread for the wonderful white wine sauce. Finally we took a chance with the Shrimp and Grits and it was spectacular! The grits were perfect, buttery smooth and wonderful, the barbecue sauce was flavorful and tasty.

Safe, great service and mouthwatering.

The food and drinks used to be amazing but we were disappointed with evereything this last time we went. Ambiance and service still on point but they need to reevaluate the food. Tuna app was slimy & chewy with a terrible sauce, smoked crab appetizer was over smoked with no taste but smoke. Buttermilk Quail Breasts and the Charbroiled Oysters were the best things we had. Our main dishes were the brown butter fish, which didnt have much flavor at all and was a little fishy. A few of the other people in my party got the special 4 course meal that also included the fish and that fish was even worse than mine.
Because of Covid we don't get to go out to eat often so we were truly looking forward to the meal. So used to this place being worth the money but $600 later for a party of 6, we were all wishing we would have chosen another place to spend our money at.

Our meal at Apolline was AMAZING. It had been a little while since I had been there and decided to go back. Firstly, the food was spectacular - the fried quail breasts were amazing, the gulf fish entree with grits is something I would go back to get again tomorrow, and the bread pudding dessert was delicious.

Also, the service was on-point, and we were able to get an outdoor table and felt like everyone was taking COVID seriously.

I would 100% recommend Apolline to anyone and everyone, and can't wait to go back!

I was sad that the restaurant was empty. Maybe run a Wednesday special price if it’s always that way?
The trout was exceptional and the oysters were great. My guests truly enjoyed themselves.
Service was very good. The only improvement would be to refrain from stacking plates when the table is cleared.
