 (New Orleans)·Dined on January 1, 2018

We went to Apolline for a pre fixe NYE dinner. That day, I got a very rude e-mail from the manager saying that if I did not confirm my reservation, it would be cancelled because there was a wait list. Extremely unprofessional.
Our reservations were at 8:30. We stood by the door in a 10 x 10 space with about 15 other people until 9:15 when we were finally seated. We were not offered champagne while we stood there waiting and getting blasted with 20 degree cold wind every time the door opened. We didn’t get out of there until 11:30 - and that was only because we skipped dessert. Food was mediocre at best but the bigger problem was that I only saw 4 employees there all night, including the manager. Service was scarce and extremely slow - most of our glasses were empty throughout the meal. HUGE waste of $900. I’d hate to see this restaurant on a night when the menu was not already pre-determined...

We had a really great time at this cozy easily accessible restaurant on Magazine. The service by Adam was exceptional, the food was tasty and fresh. For starters, the boudin pork balls were nothing short of excellent, although I should warn that they’re very unexpectedly hot and I just about scorched the roof of my mouth, but other than that, it had me yearning for more. For mains, the pork chop with sweet potatoes complemented each other nicely, while my partner enjoyed the black drum with risotto, garnished with arugula. For dessert, we ended the night with the very rich chocolate flavored flourless chocolate cake that swam in a shallow custard sauce. All things considered we can definitely see ourselves returning. The food came out in a timely manner, the layout felt quite spacious with the high ceilings, and full width wall mirror. And once again, the service was very warm and welcoming. I do recommend this place as a solid date night spot and even for a small group of friends, 4-6.

The crabmeat mac and cheese was delicious!!! The quail was also good. The scallops were okay, but it was my first time eating scallops and I’m just not a fan I don’t think it was the cooking. However, the shrimp and the corn dish that came with the scallops were really good. This place also has the freshest hot bread.

Delicious appetizers including the boudin balls and the carpaccio. The scallops, drum and quail are the best bets on the menu, along with a side of the wedge fries, which are spectacular. The pork chop was tasty but tough, despite the promo of it being brined. The people next to us got the burger, which looked really good.

Early dinner and we had the place to ourselves for a while. Blaine was our server and he was great. Oysters, steak and scallops were awesome. Didn’t much like the quail it was a little tough. Shrimp and grits was really good, as well.

Really enjoyed our first visit and plan to come back soon. Pic of my hubby and stepdaughter with me photo bombing shows the restaurant vibe. Fun night for us!

Christmas Eve was my 2nd time eating at Apolline w/in a 3 week period. The food and service was as great the second time around as the first. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

old uptown house converted into a great little nola style restaurant while keeping the ambiance of the neighborhood. the kitchen is spot on with flavors paying homage to this city's cuisine. the cocktails from the bar are creative and fun. the service was very friendly and attentive without being overbearing. pricing is fair.

Most accommodating to our group of friends - even as 5 of our 7 arrived an hour before our reservation. Sat us right down, took our cocktail orders, & started us of with some sharing hors d'oeuvres. Hospitality continued throughout our long & leisurely evening together. Fine cocktails with generous pours. Well designed and very well executed menu and dishes. My scallops and shrimp were great. Very high reviews of a friend's lamb ragu, too. Overall, a super night shared among our buddies.

Nice looking joint and friendly service. Found the menu to be very limited in available items and over-priced for the value received. My additional guests were generally pleased with their meal (taste, flavor). My lamb (with pasta) dish was pretty "simple" compared to the description and price and oh yeah it was very hard to find and enjoy the very small pieces of lamb in the dish... "where's the lamb?"!

Overall, an excellent dining experience. We were in town for Tulane Homecoming/Family weekend and had dinner after the football game Saturday evening. It is a hidden gem! No one was familiar with the restaurant except for my son's Chemistry professor who said it was a great choice. We were not disappointed! The hostess, waitstaff and food was excellent. Highly recommend.
