Cocktails were amazing! I rarely can find a balanced craft cocktail. We tried 4 different kinds and were not disappointed. Staff was overly attentive asking us how everything was, which was a bit annoying, but it was a slow night. Very cool ambiance - the restaurant is in an old church. I can see it getting super loud if the place is busy due to the high ceilings. The pickle plate is to die for if you like pickled things. We were looking for some lighter food than the traditional NOLA cuisine and this worked for that.
Hi Katie! Thank you so much for your positive review! We are thrilled that you enjoyed yourself and our cocktails so much and we are very grateful that you took the time to share your experience with others. We hope to have you back in again very soon! Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
Beautiful. Delicious. Fun. 10/10 would go back. Word.
Thank you so much Cody for your delightful review! We are thrilled you enjoyed your visit with us and very grateful that you took the time to share your take on us with the world. Thank you again, we look forward to having you back soon. Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
The cheese board needs more exotic cheese, or more variation if it remains to cost 17$.
Steak was great but the two pieces were cooked to 2 different types between rare and medium, with small portions so it did not appear to be worth 32$.
Drinks were fantastic along with the service.
Crawfish were amazing.
Thank you so much Hudson for your positive and insightful review! We will definitely look into proper temping protocol with the staff to make sure each item is cooked just how our guests want them to be. Please when you dine with us again, never hesitate to let your server know if you have any issues as all so that we may get you Exactly what you ordered and make sure you are satisfied every time. Thank you again for your insight, Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
Interesting food in a sacred setting. We were there on a sunny day which streamed in through the stain glass windows. It added to the meal. The wait staff were very attentive without being intrusive. The food abundant and quite yummy. The Bloody Mary had a nice kick and lots of vegetables! Wish we lived in New Orleans. We’d go back frequently.
Love Vessel, the food is always excellant and the service is super, only problem I had is they need to do some serious ambience work with their outdoor area in the back where i was seated with my daughter for Valentines, it was cold, bland, and very institutional.... especially compared to their exquisite interior part of the restaurant. The pricing was also heavy for the evening, $250 including tip with just 2 glasses of wine on a fixed menu at $75 a head was steep.... i walked past empty tables inside that i had booked one of on the way to being ushered outside, we felt a little discouraged that we were put outside because I had my 14 year old daughter with me.... so that'll do....
All 'n' all, I will definitely go back to vessel, just wasn't that impressed this time around on a special night.
Hi Paul, Thank you so much for your positive review despite your disappointment in parts of the evening. Please never hesitate to let your host or server know if you do not like your table or any part of your experience with us so that we may remedy it for you on the spot. It is generally never a problem to move you inside. We look forward to your return and hope that you will give us a call if there is anything we can do to better accommodate you in the future. Thank you again, Bar Amar GM
Good food, lovely setting and great service

Had a great time ... Food was Great, atmosphere was energetic, service was awesome, Drink was ok, Building was unique... a lil pricey but very Romantic without it being a Suit and tie type of night... Me and my wife will definitely return and tell our friends about the Vessel
Hi Fred, thank you so much for your wonderful review! We are thrilled you enjoyed yourself and so grateful for your recommendation to others. We are terribly sorry that you did not enjoy your "drink", this is extremely rare for our bar. Please always feel free to tell your server or bartender if you are not pleased with something so that we can get you a product that you will truly enjoy right away. Thank you again for your feedback and we look forward to your return! Bar Amar General Manager
Great venue with ample street parking plus a small parking lot by the restaurant. Our reservation specified indoor seating but by my error or theirs they attempted to seat us outside. When we said we preferred an indoor table they seated us at the bar for about 5 minutes while they prepared a table for us. Service was very good and the food was great. Definitely will go again.
The food was good but was overpriced. The service was great. Waiter was terrific. The venue itself is very cool. We probably won’t be back though even though we live very close since it’s so expensive.
Hi, Thanks so much for taking the time to write your review. We serve the highest quality food made from scratch and each dish is prepared to order using the finest ingredients available. We feel we are priced very competitively to other restaurants of similar caliber serving similar quality food. Best, Alec Wilder Owner
An exceptional dining experience with wonderful food and cocktails and the best service. Highly recommend!
Thank you so much Jen for your fantastic review and kind words! We are delighted that you enjoyed your experience with us and we look forward to your next visit. Thank you again, Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
Everything at Vessel was amazing from the service to the cocktails to the food. Two of us ordered pork chops and one had the risotto. The food was perfectly prepared. Appetizers were amazing too. The cheese plate is a great value and was more than we could eat. We can’t wait to come again the next time we’re in NOLA.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We are thrilled you enjoyed your experience and your meal so thoroughly. Try us between 4pm-6pm for Happy Hour in our comfortable lounge and share some small plates with friends! Thank you again, Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
Amazing brunch! Food was absolutely delicious and service was excellent. Kelly was a wonderful server. Thank you for a great experience. We will definitely be back!
Thank you so much for your terrific review! We so appreciate you taking the time to leave us feedback and we truly appreciate you remembering your servers name so that we can tell her what a fantastic job she is doing. Thank you again and we look forward to your return! Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
A group of four of us went here for dinner and we all loved it. We ordered several appetizers and we loved all of them (the pickled plate being my least favorite but I think that is just a matter of taste preference). We ordered scallops, steak and the fish of the day. Everyone was very happy with their meal and at the end, not of us felt overly full or loaded down because of heavy sauces. Being inside a huge church was also a fun change of scenery. The wine list offered a lot of good choices and the bottle we chose was perfect with dinner. Will go back again.
Thank you so much Autumn for your wonderful and detailed review! We are so happy you enjoyed yourself and I loved your comment about not feeling weighed down by heavy sauces as I feel our chef shares this same sentiment about lightly dressing and lightly seasoning our menu so that each dish can truly stand out on it's own unique flavors. We very much look forward to having you back in soon. Try us for happy hour for discounts on our wine list and classic cocktails! Bar Amar General Manager
Upscale casual, super relaxed, great quality service and food - we always leave happy
The food is amazing, and they have several gluten free offerings. Or server, Mikayla, was very attentive & knowledgeable. She asked the kitchen to alter a dish to make it gf.
Thank you so much for adding a few words about your experience and for remembering your servers name so that we can thank her for all her hard work! We are so glad you came to visit us and so grateful for you taking the time to leave us a review! Thank you again, Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
Drink service was slow. Ratio of portion sizes for price point of food was on the low side. Taste and texture of food was excellent, though. Highly recommend the pork chop, mussels, and scallops.
Hello, We're so pleased to know that you enjoyed the food selections from our menu! I will take your portion sizes comment into consideration and evaluate where we could be doing better. We look forward to having you back! Sincerely, Amandalynn Picolo Executive Chef
The old church is a beautiful place with all the stained glass windows. Service was a bit slow and they weren’t busy. The food was a big disappointment as the description and menu looked great. The vegetable frittata was so over cooked you really couldn’t tell that it was eggs. Too many places in Nola to eat. We won’t be back.
Hello, I am so sorry to hear about your fritatta. We always aim to please and one of our Managers would have been happy to take care of this for you and have us recook it for you or make you something else that that you would have enjoyed. I will be using your feed back to be sure to go over the cooking techniques of the fritatta in the coming weeks to correct this issue. Hope to see you again so we can wow you. Sincerely, Amandalynn Picolo Executive Chef
How wonderful to have a cocktail with cachaca--not common in the U.S. and very nicely done.
Thank you so much for coming to see us and for your feedback. I am so happy you enjoyed our creative cocktail list, but I am so sorry to see that your experience may have fallen below our standard in a couple other aspects. I'd love it if you could share with me some details about your visit so that we can understand what we might do better next time to provide you with the 5 star experience that you deserve and we strive towards. Thank you Bar Amar Cell: 516 265 2154 General Manager Vessel NOLA
Our table wasn’t ready when we arrived for our reservation which was no big deal so we sat at the bar and it was ready shortly after. We were seated outside when we put in a request to not sit outside so moved inside and sat at the bar. Staff was friendly, food was good. Bartender gave us complimentary sparkling wine for the wait on our food so that was a nice touch.
Thank you so much for your insight and review The guests next to you were wonderful but they were a bit loud so I completely understand why you wanted to leave the first two tables we sat you in I understand why you also preferred not to sit at our community tables inside, as I know sometimes we just want a private meal for two. I'm sorry we did not have a fourth table to offer you as it was a busy Friday night but I do hope we have a chance to better serve you in the future during quieter hours
I enjoyed the original church atmosphere.....our server wasn’t very attentive. Also, I am not a fan of two top tables being so close that in order to get out you end up bothering the tables next to you
Hi Brooke Thank you so much for your insight I do understand that sometimes you just want an intimate dinner farther away from other guests and on weekends we are very full. Try us earlier in the week or early evening before rush, you can even catch happy hour if you make your reservation for 5pm! I also apologize that you do not feel you got the attention you deserved from us. I have addressed this issue with your server and will certainly keep a close eye as this is far from our standard.
Service was great, food was delicious, ambience was perfect.
Two top tables were a little too close for comfort, so we moved outside which was perfect! Place is beautiful. We will be back!
Thank you so much for your fantastic review! We are thrilled you enjoyed yourself and very grateful you took the time to share your experience with other diners. We are small unfortunately and can't expand without compromising the structure of our beautiful and historic building so it can be a bit tight but I'm so glad you let us know you'd be more comfortable moving so that we could get give you the most enjoyable experience possible. Thank you again, we look forward to having you back in!
Enjoyed our meal. The menu maybe was not as extensive as I would have liked, but the scallops were excellent. As was the cream brûlée.
Thank you so much Lee for your delightful review. I am sorry our menu was a bit shorter than what you'd hoped but if there is ever something different you have in mind please let us know and we'd be happy to change up something on the menu for you to better suit your pallet. Try us for holidays for our off menu prix fixe dinners or call ahead with groups of 9 or more and we can arrange a special menu for you and your party. There are always fun ways to spice it up! Thank you again, Bar Amar
Service, food, ambiance.... everything was on point! Would def it rly go back and recommend this place.

Brunch. Eggs Benedict. Eggs def. over cooked, as in hard boiled. Typical over breaded & fried hourderves.
Hi Michael, Thank you so much for your insight We are extremely disappointed that you did not enjoy your meal and that we were not able to remedy this for you on the spot Please always let your server or manager know if one of your items is not what you'd hoped, this is certainly Not our standard.

Small portions. We left still hungry. Other than that it was great!

The ambiance is very unique and inviting. The food was very greasy and under seasoned. I just expected more.

Had cocktails and small plates on the patio with some friends. Service attentive and amiable, cheese plate fantastic, a delightful time as always.
Hi Mrs. Parker Thank you so much for your fantastic review and for reminding everyone about our heated patio!

Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
my new fav - however; if you don't like soup for breakfast/brunch (?); don't get the shrimp n grits - it was swimming in some kind of boil broth - hubbie didn't like it (I don't blame him - it wasn't too bad after he drained it off but the taste it left behind was just that - like a "boil broth" ) & now I'm worried if I'll ever get'em 2go back :(
Thank you so much for your wonderful review and we are honored to be on your list of favorites! We are so sorry about your husbands Shrimp & Grits, I distinctly remember your table and his dish was a bit heavy on the broth. I wish we could have caught him before he was full so that we could have gotten him something he liked better. We sincerely hope that you can convince him to come visit us again and that we are able to leave him with as wonderful of an impression as we left you!
Took probably about an hour to get our food out. When it came out, they forgot our side and eventually I had to ask for it. They finally brought it after we had finished our entrees and said that the previous one had burned. It would’ve been nice to come tell us that without us having to ask. There were two servers so we weren’t really sure which one was our main server or not. They were very attentive with refilling drinks and stuff. Just never communicated anything about the food taking so long until we asked. Would probably try it again as everything tasted really good.
Wonderful food served by friendly young staff in a very cool setting, former church brought back to life with a spectacular renovation, will definitely be going back!
Thank you so much for your terrific review! What a wonderful take on our setting and service! We so appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with others and we very much look forward to your return. Thank you again, Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
Our server was wonderful and the food was lovely. The ambiance was so cool too.

We hope to have you back very soon! Come explore our select happy hour wines chosen from our 7 page wine list every day from 4pm-6pm. Thank you again, Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
Deafeningly loud. A 20-something's happy hour scene. Waitstaff was a bit overwhelmed but friendly.
Lighting very dim - had to use our phones to read the menu. Food was good - lamb burger, scallops, alligator croquettes - all very tasty.
Young staffer opened our bottle of wine, placed the cork touching under her nose and after the pour was accepted she then placed that cork back in the bottle! More training was certainly needed.
With all the new restaurants in New Orleans Vessel has a ways to go before becoming more than a popular drinking spot.
Scallops were amazing!
Hi Melissa, Thank you so much for your fantastic review! We are thrilled that you enjoyed yourself and loved your meal and so very grateful that you took the time to share your experience with others! Next time let us know your servers name so that we can congratulate them on a job well done! Thank you again, we hope to have you back very soon! Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
It has been a very long time since I have been there. I have been there when it was Christian
Hi Edith, Thank you so much for your fantastic review! We are so happy you decided to come visit our restaurant, especially seeing as how you haven't been here since before Katrina. We are thrilled that you enjoyed yourself and we are honored to live up to the high service and menu quality standard that Christians set for us so many years ago. Thank you again, we hope to have you back very soon! Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
The food was incredible. Our service was spot on perfection. Had great recommendation for food and drinks. Will definitely be visiting Vessel again in the near future
`Hi! Thank you so much for your fantastic review! We are thrilled that you enjoyed yourself and so very grateful that you took the time to share your experience with others. We hope to have you back very soon and to continue to exceed your expectations! Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
Great spot for large groups or intimate dinners. Their crowd usually peters out by around nine so even on weekends you can have a nice romantic late dinner with quality cocktails.
Thank you so much Alex for your wonderful review! We look forward to having you back for many more late night bites and special occasions. Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
Our first visit to Vessel . Atmosphere and service was excellent. Appetizers were very good . We truly enjoyed the appetizers, so expected same level of flavors from entree's . Scallops with risotto was ordered by 2 in our party and it was mediocre , scallops were well cooked , however risotto lacked flavor. Lamb burger was good. Also ordered were shrimp and grits with andouille which lacked flavor completely. Were grits made with water? Shrimp was cooked fine, but again no flavor and the andouille was a cheap knock - off that had zero taste.. We were so let down once the entrees arrived based upon how wonderful our appetizers were. Would only suggest restaurant for atmosphere and cocktails.
Thank you so much Nancy for your review and your insight. We are so happy you enjoyed our bar and cocktails and we hope you'll come visit us again and allow us to show you how wonderful our kitchen can truly be. We apologize for not catching this issue at the time. We have addressed the issues mentioned and we look forward to the opportunity to deliver you the experience that you deserve. Thank you again, Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
