                                                    Great cocktails. Interesting and tasty food. The street corn hush puppies were very good! They are made with corn flour so it’s apparently it’s play on street corn.. very fun and nothing like it that I’ve tried in the city. Looking forward to our next visit.

                                                    I asked for standard seating but was seated outside. There were an excessive number of flies which made it undesirable and I enjoyable. The wait staff brought my orders to the wrong table every time, including giving my risotto to a table that hadn’t ordered any. You’d think that red flag would have helped.

                                                    The place itself is beautiful and the menu seemed promising but it was disappointing. Service was unprofessional - there was no silverware rolled when we arrived and were given one set eventually (we were a party of 2) but had to ask for a second; our server was trying her best but seemed overwhelmed because everything was taking so long to come out both for us and the table next to us, she had to apologize multiple times. The drinks were good and bar was nicely stocked, but took long to get our orders and the server had to write down the ingredients to one of the drinks we ordered, a vieux carre, which is supposed to be a New Orleans drink. The food was underwhelming to say the least. We were expecting something amazing based on the menu and the place itself, but the best part of the meal was the mayo that came with the french fries. Flavors were a bit of a miss and left us wanting more, to the point that I decided against dessert if the main courses were telling of what they'd be like. Overall, seemed like a great idea that is poorly managed/executed.

                                                    Hi Maria, I'm sorry about you experience. We have been having so many staffing issues lately it's been hard to catch up. We had a walk out of one of our lead kitchen employees the night you dined that just led to a series of chaos that affected the whole operation. I'm trying my best to get the staff rebuilt and make this place better. I am sorry you were negatively impacted. Regards, Amandalynn General Manager

                                                    I will count this experience to the fact that it was graduation weekend, a packed dining room, not enough servers to handle the quantity of guests. The food arrived after an unusually long wait, and everything was cold as if it had been sitting in the kitchen counter. Cold waffles, cold eggs, cold biscuits doesn’t equate to an enjoyable experience. I’ve been to Vessel several other times and know that this wasn’t up to their standards. Unfortunately, our choices were to either eat or wait another 35 minutes for a reorder.

                                                    Vessel NOLAResponded 3 days ago

                                                    I'm very sorry about the issues with your dining experience this weekend. We definitely were experiencing some staffing issues, however they were definitely from the kitchen side. We had one of our lead line cooks walk out leaving us short staffed and it created chaos over the weekend. I'm very sorry you were affected, but I know we will be back to the high standard you remember in the past. Regards, Amandalynn General Manager

                                                    Really disappointing experience today. Service was an absolute mess for our own party and every table around us. Incorrect dishes being sent to multiple tables and extremely long waits for food (over an hour after ordering and dishes arriving for only part of the table). Food quality seemed much worse than prior visits as well with dishes arriving cold and teetering on undercooked. Bummed because this used to be a favorite spot.

                                                    Hi, I'm extremely sorry for the delay on your items and your food quality. I am searching very hard for the right kitchen staff for brunch. I hate to know we were a favorite and you had such a poor experience this go around. Please know that this is not our norm and I'm working very hard on getting a team that will help us be great.

                                                    Overall this was a terrible and disappointing experience. It was incredibly overpriced for bland food. Every single dish was a fail from the overcooked “lemon and truffle” risotto to the dry and tasteless chicken to the mediocre cheese plate (yes they even managed to butcher a cheese plate). Nothing about the food was redeemable, especially for the price tag. The cocktails were decent and our server was nice. Service was incredibly slow and the tables on back patio weren’t half full.

                                                    Hello Lee, I'm incredibly sorry for your experience. We have been doing great on improving, however we hit a major road block the night you dined when one of our lead line cooks decided to walk out in the middle of dinner service. This put a huge strain on timeliness of service, as well as affecting the quality of food. It was an utter embarrassment and I'm so sorry. Regards, Amandalynn General Manager

                                                    Way overpriced for the quality and quantity received. I couldn't even bring my daughter's graduation cake inside without paying a $50 fee on top of the $200+ dinner bill.

                                                    I made a res for my daughters graduation. We have been several times before and really enjoyed it. We were sat on patio despite my indoor reservation-it was hot and there were a ton of flies!!! Then they were out of cvs Ickes and salmon making menu very limited. Not the post grad meal we had hoped for

Our suppliers been having trouble getting us items for our menu over the last day. I did research for the reservation and it's actually notated as an outdoor booking. I'm sorry we couldn't accommodate your request for inside and I'm sorry for the negative experience. I hope your next visit with us is incredible. I've made a note in your booking to take extra special care of you. Sincerely, Amandalynn Picolo General Manager

                                                    Disappointed. Underwhelmed. The first two entrees I ordered were unavailable. That might be ok if they had more than 6 choices. You might think If you shrink the menu it would be easier to avoid running out.

                                                    Hush puppies were bland. My colleague and I were served two different types of fish for the same entree, neither of which was good. The service was disinterested at best. Dishes were forgotten and check ins were only sporadic. The app recommended Vessel based upon my frequent visits to Gjelina in Venice. The algorithm needs work because the two restaurants are not remotely comparable.

                                                    This is a great restaurant for ambiance and delicious NOLA cuisine! However our waiter was non existent and people came and went near us before we were even served!

I'd be interested to know what specific issues you experienced so I can be sure to correct them. We are working hard to correct known issues as I've just acquired a new Chef de Cuisine, and hired an Assistant Manager. Regards, Amandalynn General Manager

                                                    The former church is lovely, but the sun shining through the windows in the evening are a problem. Directly in the eyes of anyone facing them. Our waitress apparently had trouble hearing us and thought we were sharing the salads and entrees so they were delivered separately. The first entree was not hot although the second was.

                                                    Not our best visit. We’ve been here many times, but the service & food was lacking. I ordered the traditional breakfast which included grits, scrambled eggs (runny), and a biscuit (no salt/taste). They did the drop & run and I didn’t have a chance to ask for salt & pepper, butter, & jam. Took me 10 minutes to flag someone down. First rule of service, ask your customer if they need anything before you walk off. My friend ordered the blueberry waffles & there were no pistachios. Her coffee was lukewarm.

                                                    We had a large party reservation at 9:45. We arrived a bit early and waited at the couches by the entrance which was nice. Once we were seated the vibes were just a little awkward. Our waiter asked me for my ID 3 times and you could just tell she wasn’t the biggest fan of our group. The food was good but took 50 min to arrive. The red fish, Fillet mignon, and the scallops were the best dishes by far. I think this place would just be better for an older crowd and small parties. They DONT split checks and we had to talk to the manger so we could get separate checks which took a while. Truly I would go back if I was going on a date because the drink I ordered was good and the food was too. Just the service threw me off.

                                                    2nd time this week and man-o-man are they struggling. I feel like the management must be off or out of wack! Servers know nothing about the menu, chef overcooked multiple meals twice, wait staff is I’ll prepared and hadn’t even had the food to comment, and the staff clearly had not prepped for brunch as they were still pulling things out and making the ambiance nice at 1p when we were leaving. We’ve really tried to support the place but this will very likely be the last time we dine at Vessel! Shrimp and grits were on point though!!

                                                    Hi, I'm sorry you experienced service issues. I will admit we have been struggling in the management department. We just recently acquired a Chef De Cuisine and I have new FOH management starting on Monday. It has been only me over the whole space for a while so with this new team under me, I anticipate we will be moving from struggling to exceptional very soon. I'm sorry you were negatively impacted while we work on ourselves. Regards, Amandalynn General Manager

We always love to bring friends and family from out of town here because of how cool it is and we’ve done a few birthday dinners as well. Appetizers are hands down the best, we could get full on just those! We’ve only come for dinner but can’t wait to try brunch! Vessel never disappoints!

                                                    Restaurant needs more upkeep. Smudges on windows, smelly outside, dingy. Drinks were great. Food is overpriced but good.

                                                    This was just shockingly bad service. Our server took our drink and food order (apps, salads, mains) and did not show up again for me than an hour. When he did he brought out our main coarse only. When he realized he literally forgot about us he rushed into the kitchen brought out everything at once, then abruptly notified us it was last call! My worst service experience in Nolo. Completely unapologetic! The gratuity added to my table of 5 was just the final injustice.

                                                    I have been to Vessel a couple of time and usually happy with the food and service. However, this night the staff was disorginazed, they were out of two menu items and the food was very slow. About an hour from order to table. Still enjoyed the night.

                                                    Hello Scott, I apologize for the disorganization in service. We've recently added a new Chef De Cuisine, and even closed Monday for repairs and menu development. We are still working out some of the kinks, however I assure you your next visit we will knock it out the park. Regards, Amandalynn General Manager

                                                    Service was extremely slow, they added gratuity for 4 & a child, we waited for over an hour for food that the manager had to comp our appetizer & offered free desserts because they "lost our ticket" in the kitchen. We didn't complain, but they knew it was a mess. The portions were extremely small, & overall over-priced. We will probably not return sadly.

I tried my best to make it right for your guest as we did lose your ticket after a long holiday brunch on our bumpy transition into dinner service. We have just acquired a new Chef de Cuisine so we have made some menu changes for a smoother service. We hope should you return we wow you. Regards, Amandalynn

                                                    Took my mother here for Mother’s Day . The prefix menu had a limited selection but everything served was very good . Server did a great job as well . Bartenders made great drinks . My only complaint and why I’ve given 4 out of 5 stars is because of the wait . I will definitely head back again and recommend this place . Also the ambience was great . Having a restaurant in a church is cool .

                                                    Service was incredibly slow. Waited neatly an hour before our first course was served. Wait staff frequently got our food order mixed up with a table for four seated next to us. Ambience was ice, but service was poor, food was average at best and not worth the overpriced Mother's Day Brunch cost. Unfortunate and unpleasant experience.
