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.

Disappointed. Service was extremely slow, took 45 minutes to get our cocktails and about that long before our orders were taken. Food was just ok, not what I’ve had before. This used to be in my top 3 “go to” restaurants, sad to say it is not any more.

It was ok. Not great. Service was fine. We were outdoor by request. Once we asked for different chairs which our server readily changed out, it was fine but the original ones outside when we arrived were awful. The food was fresh just not that tasty. Cheese platter was best thing. The bread was just not food and butter was soft if not melted. Lemon tart for dessert was just not so good. Mahi main course with grits was just not that flavorful. So, fair. We’d try again. Maybe there will be better choices.

Great service on the patio under the stars. A good waiter makes all the difference. The Shrimp and Grits was given high marks. The seasoning has a touch of creole heat kicking it up a quarter notch. Having lived in Charleston, SC she is an expert on this dish. The cold smoked pork chop served medium on a bed of lighted fried sweet potatoes finished with fried onion strings on top was perfect. The wines selection is good and we paired a nice Napa Red.
Ending with the bread pudding was a happy ending to the experience. The brioche was a tiny bit crispy on the edge but good enough. Overall, Appoline is highly recommended by us and will definitely, get a return visit soon.

We had dinner on the patio and it was perfect. Our server, Nick, was so pleasant. We really enjoyed his service and recommendations. I believe this food has to be some of the best I’ve had in New Orleans... the crab and corn bisque in particular. We didn’t leave room for dessert, but will be back for the apparently famous bread pudding soon!

Was very excited to try this place. Unfortunately I was very disappointed.
Waited an hour for our food. Our order was very simple too! This is what we ordered:
Thick bacon with cinnamon - it was delicious, but we waited 30min for it.
Two orders of scrambled eggs with crispy bacon - eggs dry and wilted bacon which finally came out after an hour of being seated. Not once did the waiter say anything about the delay.
Eggs Benedict: no words to describe the dried egg.
Biscuits with jam: hard as a rock, tho jam was delicious. $80 for 3ppl.

I hadn’t been to Apolline in a few years and now I regret it. The food was excellent and the ambience of the restaurant was very calming. All safety protocols were in place and our party felt very safe and comfortable. I came with my parents and daughter and we ordered a good variety of choices from the Brunch Menu. Everything we got was absolutely delicious. I could eat the Praline Bacon all day. The Corn&Crab Bisque was especially good. The service was spot on. A perfect luncheon.

Food was not as expected. I had the gulf fish and it was dry/overcooked. My daughter had the oysters also overcooked and two were even burned.
Service was excellent! And the restaurant is very cute.

The food was good; drinks from the bar left a lot to be desired. My Old Fashion was more like a whiskey sour. Lemon Drop martini was very small and cost $12. for house vodka.
Noise level was way too high. Very, very noisy and was hard to hold a conversation at a table for 2 (wish we would have sat outside). Service was impeccable (Alex was our server).
