I loved the ambiance and the food was very good. This is a lovely place to get a drink and a snack. It is quite pricey if you want to make a meal of it.

This was a perfect place to celebrate a family member's birthday. The champagne was great, the live music was lovely, and the food was outstanding. It made for a perfect Sunday afternoon.

We went on Mardi Gras day, and even though it was crowded, service was amazing as was the food and bubbly. The owner came by to ask us how everything was! I’ll be back!!

This should not be recommended as a dinner restaurant. There is very little food at a high price.

We came to celebrate our birthdays during our girlfriends getaway and the entire Effervescence crew made sure that it was truly a special occasion. The place is beautifully decorated and the menu is full of options for every taste and every budget. I ordered a half Prosecco flight which was generously poured and definitely didn’t make you feel as if you were getting only half of anything! My friend ordered the popsicle Prosecco and liked the popsicle so much she ordered an extra popsicle on the side, which was reasonably priced and graciously accommodated. This is great date night choice and I definitely recommend it for celebrating your special occasion.

Went to celebrate a birthday. Perfect for a night out! The cocktails are amazing. The food menu is limited and changes up so check it before decided to dine as well. The staff is amazing! Very tentative.

New Year’s Eve celebration. 8 course prix fixe that ended up a bargain for the experience delivered. Every course provided something unique or extraordinary, meaning I’ve not had it before or never had it this good.

Owner was there, service impeccable, chefs are gifted. If you visit New Orleans make the effort to get here. There format is less formal outside of NYE, and cocktails, bubbles and small plates will make a perfect start or a perfect night.

A unique concept in a comfortable upscale setting with possibly the best chef in NOLA. The menu was unique and creative with a 5-star presentation, and distinctly memorable flavors.

I took my parents to Effervescence because the first time we went it was so much fun. This time was dreadful. Our waiter appeared to be on drugs. His hands were shaking and he kept forgetting about us. My dad asked about his drink and the waiter repeated “its known to be very good.” Thats all he knew about it. The first time i went, it was fun to hear about the different champagnes, wine, and cocktails. It was a completely different experience this time. We were there over an hour, and barely got one round because we could never get any help. We finally left in exasperation. We won’t be back.

The popcorn is great. The first time we ate a full meal and it was superb. We didn’t eat this time because we left.

We decided on Effervescence to be the right spot for a Birthday celebration. It turned out to be the refectory setting with excellent champagne and seafood. Everything was most enjoyable. We will certainly return and recommend Effervescence to all.

Reservations for a party of 5 was relatively easy to make
Interesting wine & bubbly samplers and delicious snacks that pair well are winning combinations in my book. The ambience is lovely and the professional staff attentive and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed walking out to the restaurant and seeing the colorful residences too.

I tried a new champagne by the recommendation of my server. It was delicious and perfect! The food hands down was scrumptious. That West Indies crab salad is AMAZING! I had two orders, that should tell you right there.😉

Effervescence has a great vibe and atmosphere. Great small plates and an extensive champagne, wine and mixed drink menu. Met the owner and she was a doll. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed!
