This spot has charming exterior and interiors creating an amazing ambiance. Perfect for bubbles of all kinds (their selection was no joke), but don’t skip the menu! The owner was kind and helpful in menu selection. Everything we ate was delicious- so nice we went BACK during our stay. Worth the Uber ride!

Loved it! Cool concept, unique offerings, great service. It was a little loud for my taste, making it difficult to have a conversation. I would definitely go back and/or recommend to a friend.

All the food options were delightful; both presentation and execution. Very tasty and thoughtfully put together. The service was great. The atmosphere was quaint and subdued, which was a wonderful change from the loud of everywhere else. Clean and neat. Small portions, obviously, but really tasty. If you want Champagne, you come here - what a selection.

Love coming here. Freshest seafood and amazing service. Love the half-flights—you can experience lots of different kinds of bubbly and find new favorites. Everything is delicious but y’all—those murder point oysters with harissa mignonette are out of this world. Icy and fresh and so delicious. Can’t wait to go back.

If you want to test champagne and similars in New Orleans, you must try Effervescence!
Besides, you can try very good food. The pop corn with paprika is amazing. Also the ceviche and the wagyu.
It is the best to go with your partner.

The food was unbelievable, very creative and exploding with flavor. The chef went out of his way to surprise us with his combinations of local ingredients into international classics like ceviche. Very fun menu - nothing else like it in NOLA. We literally tried and loved everything but the food is definitely optimized for little bites while hanging out before or after dinner.

From our greeting, to descriptions of champagnes and our menu selections, the staff proved itself as highly trained and very welcoming. This restaurant provides an experience that is unique and wonderful to New Orleans and the South. The champagne menu is not to be found anywhere outside of New York, Paris and other large, international cities.

This is a small restaurant. We arrived on the early side for dinner. As the night went in, it filled up and became louder but was never prohibitively loud, still easy to have a conversation.
The menu is small. That’s perhaps the only down side. It’s really more of a fancy bar with food service than a full restaurant. Had we arrived very hungry, we could easily have ordered one of everything between the two of us. But if you arrive aware of the small menu, it’s really a non issue. The up side of the small menu is that they did everything extremely well. Our favorite was the Waygu Beef, but really, everything was great.
We had two cocktails, those were well done, and enjoyed one of the flights of champagne.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a small group (2-4) or if you’d like a nice date or special occasion restaurant.

The waitress/hostess working the night had a terrible attitude. Overall, the place had such a weird vibe. They definitely have a pretty space but staff acted like the guests should be happy to be in their presence. So yeah maybe NOLA residents are excited to see a pretty space - However, coming from NYC (the land of endless Instagramable restaurants and food spots) , it takes more than a pretty space to impress.

Service was lackluster - My champagne flight was very dry / Brut which was a terrible mix with the frozen grapefruit treat . Attentive staff would have provided guidance and recommended a different champagne flight / snack. I couldn't wait to get out of there and head out to Dinner. Should have gone to Hot Tin like the night before.

Had the birthday flight of champagne -- three 1/2 glasses -- and all three were excellent. Food very creative and exceptionally good. I particularly enjoyed the Royal Red shrimp as I'd had them somewhere else and they were battered, deep-fried and served with a sauce so the actual flavor of the shrimp was masked.


Very noisy and I wasn't crazy about the pretty much unrelieved white-on-white décor. Enjoyed the view onto N. Rampart Street.
