Appeared to have a number of servers/wait staff, yet we waited an unusually long time for our food. The wait was even longer to get our bill and even longer for some one to take our bill. Will really have to beg my husband to go again.
Really hard to heard each other and our table for four was even on the small side.

The oyster appetizer was delicious. The shrimp n grits appetizer was very good but too large. The square 4 tops with 1 person on each of 4 sides are very uncomfortable for 4 people of average size. I am a male 5'9" and by mid-meal 1 of my legs is cramping. he 4 tops with 2 people per side look more comfortable

Dip the warm bread into the bisque. The drum with risotto melts in your mouth. Baked oysters, everything is so good. Service is top notch. We love the chef. We always leave happy.

A quaint place in uptown away from the crowds of the Quarter. Well worth the $10 Uber to get there. I had the broiled oysters to start. Not the common preparation at so many places these days. More like a Rockefeller but without the spinach. That and the main course--grilled black drum over crab-laced risotto--were both excellent. Some creative cocktails from the bar and timely and friendly service made for a fun experience. It was my first time there. I will definitely come back again.

Elegant dining experience in a welcoming environment. The interior decor is subdued and sophisticated, impeccably clean and bright, and welcoming. It is also easy to converse.
We were a party of six and did a very extensive cross-tasting of many dishes on the menu. The charbroiled oysters were perfectly done and succulent, and was a fine precusor to the very well conceived and balanced mains. The pork chop was juicy and full of flavor, as was the lamb ragu. Save room for the bread pudding and the chocolate cake. A happy palate and a fine evening together.

My girlfriend and I dined at Apolline last Friday (Feb. 23) and everything was wonderful as far as the food, service, and atmosphere goes. We started with the Shrimp & Grits. Excellent. For dinner my girlfriend got the Baby Drum and I had the Braised Lamb Ragu. Again, both were fantastic. Then we finished it off with the Brioche Bread Pudding. Like everything else, it was wonderful. Service was top-notch as well. However, my reasoning for not being able to give this restaurant a 5 star review is the fact that my girlfriend and I were sat between 2 large groups of women (an 8 top & a 6 top). The 8 top of women were drinking and just enjoying themselves but they were extremely loud and then once the 6 top of women was sat, it pretty much became impossible for us to have a conversation and enjoy our date night out. I won't necessarily say it ruined our evening but it did make it a little less enjoyable. A 2 top should never be put in-between 2 large parties. I would absolutely still return to Apolline but will make sure I request a table away from any large groups.

We went to be in a prime position to watch Mardi Gras parades. As in years past, the staff was wonderful, being gracious about our hopping up and running onto the front porch to watch parades, timing courses to arrive between parades, and still getting the food out hot.

Lots of locals were there. It made for a lovely evening.

Our last 2 times in NOLA the food & service was 5 * . This time not so much.The duck confet at brunch was way too salty. I informed the waitress and no concern was given to us with our disappointment. it seemed as if they just wanted us to pay the bill and get out and so we did and there you are. What a slap in the face. Will not return

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!
