We have gone to Apolline for our Christmas Party for the past 3 years. The food is awesome and the servers very friendly. The Chief came out and check on us and the quality of the food we ate. I have also come myself for dinner dates. It is amazing.

Everything was excellent except the cocktail which was served in a rather small glass with an enormous ice cube leaving very little room for the liquid. A larger glass or smaller ice cube would be much much better.

First off, my husband doesn’t like spending money on food. I however consider myself a “foodie”. He had the pork chop and could NOT stop raving. He said it was the best he’s ever had and will be back. Not only is the food exceptional, but the amazing bartender Amanda was personable and wonderful. After dinner she gave us an impromptu lesson on Vermouth with tastings. She made the night one of the best ding experiences we ever had. I can’t recommend Apolline enough.

Wanted to give 5 stars, but... The grilled oysters were great but served lukewarm. We returned 4, as we had eaten two. The order was returned as 4 (which is fine) except these were the same ones, simply reheated. And, these were minimally warmer than sent it. We told the server about the second faux pas, but did not want to make a big deal. Still, not a first-rate approach to the problem. Grilled pork chop was outstanding.

This is an underappreciated restaurant. The food is great and the menu is laid out in the traditional appetizer, salad, mains and sides sections. The atmosphere is elegant and the service is outstanding. Given that the number of visitors was low the night we went, it was like having a semi-private chef who presented three outstanding courses. I don't know whether this place is on the way up or down, but it is great and deserves your attention either before it becomes "hot" or before it disappears.

Charming interior. With VERY attentive service! The food was really good. We had the char-broiled oysters that were a nice twist on the traditional ones.
The presentation of entrees was very nice and the flavor of everyone’s dish did not disappoint!! The scallops with shrimp we simply delicious!! So was the bread pudding!

We will come back again!!

Although I had made our reservation weeks in advance, we got a table right next to the busing/kitchen area and extremely rushed, hyper service from our waiter. Service was slow and we were both extremely disappointed with our food. The only thing we really enjoyed was the bread pudding dessert.

I really spend a lot of time researching great eating spots when I travel so this restaurant was a huge disappointment. Not to mention that the Uber ride round trip was over $46 since the restaurant location is not close to downtown.

I would not recommend this place to anyone......

Exemplary attentive service. Fresh greens and seafood. Mussels were excellent. The oysters WERE a tease. Not enough portion of the deliciousness. Desserts of orange tart and the "you only needa spoonful' chocolate mouse were mouth delights. Small little, fun, and high energy find in the Garden District. Our share ride from the Super Dome took us down Napoleon which was an incredible sight of mansion after mansion. We are recommending to friends who will be in NOLA next month!

This visit at apolline was extremely disappointing. One of our party had an over cooked 4” piece of fish and two others had to send their hamburgers back because they were over cooked. When the burgers came out again they were raw. Will not be dining here again any time soon.

The charbroiled oysters were microscopic, which was quite the tease, as they tasted unbelievable. The seared diver scallops with grilled shrimp and macque choux were excellent. The bread pudding was excellent and seemed to be distinctive in a city full of bread pudding. The craft cocktail (with dolin blanc and strawberry shrub) was very good as well. I recommend this restaurant.

Went to Apolline for Coolinary Month. We had the Grilled Gulf Shrimp and Braised Pork Belly for entrees. Both were outstanding. For dessert the chocolate pots de creme and the goat cheese Orange Dream Tart were to die for. The orange tart was only on the coolinary month menu. So glad we got it. Great place, terrific food and waitstaff. Will be definitely going back sooner than later!

Having been here many times, I am stunned at the horrible horrible service and really crappy meal. Wine was good; desert was good. I got my own pepper for my salad. Had to ask for utensils... I'm just shocked and so sorry that I brought an employee and his wife to dinner here tonight.
