Fantastic. Second wall to wall great meal we have had at Apolline. Lamb Shank was tremendous, Gulf Fish was terrific, buttermilk fried Quail breasts stole the show. Amazing again!

Great service.... fabulous food. The oysters are especially tasty, but the soup and fish were great, too. My husband loved the chicken debris poutine also. I will definitely come back and bring out of town guests. Our waiter was warm and friendly but unobtrusive. (We were with friends we don’t see often so we were exceptionally talkative. ) She refilled glasses, brought us everything we needed without our having to ask for it!

Hate to write bad reviews but....my husband and I went today for a Good Friday evening dinner. Arrived 15 mins early ( reservation was at 5:30) but from the outside it looked like they were closed. So called to make sure they were open since it was a holiday. The girl got so annoyed by my phone call that we almost didn't go inside. But decided to go in anyways. From the time we walked in , the attitude of every staff member was unbelievable. They seemed like we were an inconvenience. Side note- since our reservation was so early, we were the only ones there. Our waitress kept disappearing on us. When we asked for help, again, the 2 staff members got annoyed. We ordered 2 apps:
JAMBALAYA DUMPLINGS and BUTTERMILK FRIED QUAIL BREASTS. I'm a foodie so I'm a huge believer that Apps are the main drivers that will urge the customer to either continue to eat or be a complete turn off for the rest of the menu. We were so disappointed with the apps , we decided not to order the main dish. With the poor/unfriendly service then the disappointing apps, we decided to ask for our check. As we were leaving, the hostess/staff was at the door filling out some paperwork and didn't even acknowledge our exit. Very disappointed with our experience and hope this was just an off evening for all staff members!

They set my table for 1:45pm and they closed everything at 2:00pm!! Needless to say I couldn’t even order what I wanted and everything was rushed...

After reading reviews on Apolline, I was expecting an exceptional experience. However, the service was not what was expected. We were not greeted in a very welcoming way because we had less people than the reservation was for (because people canceled at the last minute). Then our server was not very friendly either is if it were a burden to be there. The food was decent, but for the price, vs the portion and atmosphere, their are other much better nearby places to dine.

I’ll start by saying Apolline is a great restaurant. Service was great as usual. Entrees were great as usual. Wine very nice. I had the pork chop, and I was happily gnawing on the bone by the end. The charbroiled oysters were also phenomenal. That being said, the Jambalaya Dumplings were very disappointing. All at the table agreed they were surprising contrast to the high quality of the rest of the food. Smallish portions and higher prices are the other reason this restaurant gets 4 stars. I’ll still go again.

Our server, Adam was welcoming, professional and very knowledgeable of the menu and wine selection. The bartender, Lisa has a great pallet, her drinks where fantastic. Apolline has taken covid seriously, disinfecting, being masked and spacing tables accordingly, my wife and I felt comfortable knowing they are doing their part. Chef Billy has seriously elevated the menu. We had a hard time choosing because everything sounded delicious. Fish, lamb, chop, scallops. Something for everyone. My wife was happy. Great job to the Apolline team. We will be back.

Shout to Lydia, our waiter! She is outstanding. Super friendly, fun spirit, and made our first experience a great one. She suggested the quail bites and jambalaya dumplings and they were delicious! I ordered the gulf fish entree and my husband ordered the lamb shank. He asked for a sauce to go over the lamb and Lydia brought the perfect sauce to blend with the lamb. It was amazing! Nice vibe, great music, chill and romantic. It's was a great choice for a date night. Highly recommend.

Finally getting out now that vaccinations are becoming more common. I almost forgot just how wonderful the experience of dining out can be. The food and service were outstanding. We had to wait on the white wine to get cold (would rather not had the suggested bottle if we can't drink it until halfway through the meal), but everything else was great.

I love this restaurant. The outdoor dining area is charming and the food is wonderful. We ordered from the fixed price Lenten menu and every bite was delicious, though more than I could eat (my fiance was happy to finish my servings). I had the crab cake, fried soft shell crab, and a rich chocolate dessert. Their wine list is really good, with bottles at every price point. The service is always very professional and friendly, without being intrusive. We truly appreciate this neighborhood gem.

Adam was a good server ( his first night!) and I always love the ambience of this place. I would have given food 4,
had it not been so salty ( this is in my profile).
Wine was good.
Hostess could have been friendlier and maybe worn black or white or something different. Just my opinion

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!
