Olivia was awesome and insightful. The space is absolutely beautiful. We actually sat at a community table, which I love. Food was great. I’ll definitely be back.
The ambiance - the 2 centrally placed long tables each sitting 14 persons - are your hint that large groups attend frequently.
Noise level was somewhat high, but my wife and I came to eat first, talk second.
Drinks, my wife is fussy but the Royal Pearl hit her spot. I enjoyed the Corpse Reviver #2, glass of GL Laudun Chusan Red, and paired Amaro Nonino with dessert.
The food, from carrot ginger soup to mussels to pork chop, and beef tournedos,
were all fully consumed with gusto.
The desserts, although we were pleasantly full, lavender ice cream and creme brulee, also disappeared rapidly.
Value, about average for the board of fair we consumed.
We definitely will be back, maybe with a dozen friends to claim a long table:)
We went to Vessel a year ago for NYE and loved it so much we decided to go back for a regular dinner. Both food and drinks were very good. We will likely return each time we are in town.
I would recommend because I enjoyed the ambiance. The food items we had were average but the service was very slow and that's what I would tell my friends. I've always like this location dating back to when it was Christian's Restaurant.
I gave vessel another shot after a mediocre experience the first time and this time was even more lackluster than the first. The price is just too high for quality that is just ok. Yeah it’s in a church but who cares if everything else about the experience sucks. We got there 10 minutes before our reservation and waited an additional 25 minutes Past the reservation time before we were finally sat. I basically paid about $50 for 2 warm beerS and a small portion of risotto that was JUST OK. It’s not that the experience was terrible but feel like I would have left a lot fuller and happier if I spent the same amount of money literally anywhere else.
Superb!!! Cool spot and great food
Thank you so much for your fantastic review John! We are thrilled you enjoyed yourself and hope to see you back again soon! Come check out our cocktails sometime for happy hour 7 days a week 4pm-6pm. Thank you again, Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
Food was great, server was knowleggable and very nice. Food came out hot not to quick not to slow.
Didnt get it but wish I ordered the chicken dish, it looked amazing
Thank you so much for coming to visit us at Vessel and for taking the time to share your experience with others! We look forward to having you back in with us very soon and you can try our roasted chicken breast this time! Thank you again, Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
Started off rocky because our server wasn’t aware of our arrival maybe. Mikayla, who was not suppose to be out server, took over and everything was smooth sailing from there. She was a delight and very knowledgeable. The manager checked on us periodically as well, i would dine here again.
Thank you so much Monique for your wonderful review. We are very sorry about the confusion at the beginning of your evening but we are thrilled that it did not tarnish the rest of your experience with us. We look forward to seeing you all again soon and to leaving you with an even better experience! Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
Need to work on the greeting other then that fantastic and delicious
Thank you so much for your wonderful review and for your insight. We will certainly speak to our servers and hosts about their greets, and we are so pleased that you enjoyed the rest of your visit and dining experience with us. We look forward to seeing you back again soon and to leaving you with an even better experience! Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
Ambiance was great but for $200 for 3 people we expected better service. I understand it was Thanksgiving but our server acted like it was 8am rush hour at a diner. She never made eye contact and literally said a few words in passing to get get to the next table. They seemed a little unprepared for the dinner service. The food seemed more pre-prepared than you'd expect from a restaurant such as this. I get that it's common on prix fixe meals, just something we noticed. It's not a big place but another server helping to provide a more personable experience would go a long way to encourage repeat customers. I will say that this was our first trip here and I'll gladly go back once in New Orleans next time and give them another chance. The bartender was great and provided excellent service, even bringing our drinks to the waiting area himself.
Good afternoon, Thank you so much for your review and your input. We believe that service should be not only exceptional, but memorable and personable just as you described, and I would love to understand more about your experience and where we fell short. My cell phone number is 516 265 2154. If you could call me and let me know a bit more about your experience so that we can make sure to improve in the future I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you, Bar Amar General Manager
Arrived for our 7:15 reservation around 7:10. Hostess directed us to sit at the bar and we were told they would let us know when our table was ready. This place is quite noisy but we sat right on the corner by the hostess stand and ordered drinks. Around 7:30 I get my phone out of my purse to check the time and see that instead of informing us in person our table was ready, they sent me a text message, which of course I did not hear or see since my phone was inside my purse in the noisy restaurant. They had sent a message to my phone 10 minutes prior. If I had not pulled my phone out to check the time, they probably would have cancelled our reservation even though we were there waiting for our table. While we were sitting at the bar waiting to for our table, I saw at least two other couples who had a member of the staff come get them and take them to be seated. For whatever reason they were too busy to do the same for us. The food was good, the drinks were excellent and the place was absolutely freezing which can probably be attributed to the high ceilings.
Hi Ashley, I am so sorry that this left you feeling so upset but I am very happy that the rest of your experience was so wonderful. On a busy night we greet between 150-250 people. It is hard to remember exactly who was first and exactly whose reservation was first, therefor we use opentable to monitor our guests and opentable was used to contact your cell phone when your table was ready. The 2 other couples you saw had 7pm reservations while yours was for 7:15pm. Truly sorry for the confusion
Salad mediocre. Entre took almost 1 hour to arrive. Gumbo great. Turkey great. Ambiance great.
Hi Ira, thank you so much for your feedback! I'm so sorry it felt like a long time before your entree arrived but I am glad you were so pleased with the majority of your meal. I wish you had told me at the time that you were not thrilled with your salad, I would have swapped this out for you right away! Always let the server or manager know if something is not up to par, it is so important to us that you truly enjoy everything you are served with us. We hope to see you again, Bar Amar GM
I loved the restaurant and it was beautiful and the staff was friendly. I ordered the Pre-fixe turkey dinner and an extra pear salad since I was sharing the dinner. The pear salad was not delivered before our meal by mistake, but given to us to "take home". The salad was a big dissapointment, maybe three small slices of pear in the salad and it was soggy. Definitely not a $12.00 salad. The turkey and dressing was tasty however. I thought overall, the food was overpriced. I doubt if I will return for this reason.
Hi Christine! Thank you so much for your review and your feedback! We are very happy that you enjoyed your service and your experience. I wish you had told me when I touched your table what was bothering you so that I could have improved your experience on the spot. It is so important to us that you leave happy and full! We even allow people to split, share, and swap the Prix Fixe menu to try to suit all budgets and pallets. If there is every anything we can do in the future please let us know!
It was an all around fantastic experience. The wait staff was incredible. We had the Thanksgiving special menu. Every single bite was phenomenal. The creme brulee was especially divine. The duck and andoullie gumbo was delicious. We will DEFINITELY be going back to Vessel. Our only slightly negative was the noise level. We had a hard time hearing each other. Thanks to the chef and wait staff for a great Thanksgiving for my family.
Thank you so much Soozy for your wonderful and insightful review! We are so happy you joined us for the holidays and even more pleased that you had such a wonderful experience with us. We very much look forward to your return! Thank you again, Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
Great food and experience!

Interesting delicious menu. Try the fish dip, mussels, Tornedos, chopped salad. All great. Service was responsive. Also a terrific happy hour choice of cocktails. Will definitely be back.

We had a relaxed brunch on the patio (where he was happy he could watch the game). All the food was delicious. A bottle for mimosas. Perfect weather. We will definitely be back.
Thank you so much for your fantastic review!! We look forward to having you back in with us next Sunday to see the game and enjoy our happy hour 2pm-4pm! Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
Love the ambiance and vibe, which is why I gave it a high rating. However, for $20 you’d expect one hellava burger and it was terribly dry and not on the advertised brioche bun.. fries weren’t great. My salad was decent but again, for the price, nothing special.
Definitely worth going and seeing for yourself especially if you’re just wanting a cocktail!
Thank you so much Jenna! We are so grateful for your positive review and very disappointed to not meet your expectations meal wise. This is very unlike us, and I wish we had known so that we could have corrected this at the time. Always tell your server or bartender if there is something about your meal or drink you'd like to change, it is important to us that you leave happy and we will always sub it out for you. I truly hope we get another chance to show you how wonderful our kitchen can be!
Very nice place to have brunch on the weekends. Inside was nicely spaced and looks amazing inside and out. Food was top notch and service was fast and friendly.
Thank you so much James for your fantastic review!! We so appreciate your feedback and you taking the time to share your experience with others. We look forward to having you back in with us again and to exceeding your expectations again and again! Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
The food and service was great. The building is a great experience to have a meal in. I would recommend this place for a date night.
Thank you so much for your fantastic review and recommendation!! We are thrilled that you enjoyed yourself and so very grateful that you took the time to share your experience with us! Thank you again, we hope to have you back very soon! Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
the food was good but limited menu. The drinks are strange. Very pretty inside
Hi Sam, Thank you so much for you input! We can certainly look into adding some extra items to our fall menu since we do rotate our menu seasonally and we often run specials to keep it exciting for our regulars! Our drinks are handcrafted seasonal craft cocktails, so I certainly understand if they are a bit more intricate than what you are used to but feel free to order a simple vodka cranberry or rum punch anytime! Thank you again, Bar Amar General MAnager Vessel NOLA
Great space and knowledge wait staff. Food was very good and it was nice to be off the beaten path to enjoy a great meal.
Took my parent’s
The pork belly was the best i’ve had in the city. We went during happy hour to try the amazing craft cocktails and were not disappointed. Please give Vessel a try and you will be please.
Thank you so much Melody, for your terrific review! We so appreciate your recommendation and we look forward to many more happy hour visits! Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
Quite a unique location. I am new to opentable and stumbled upon Vessel in search of a good place for dinner and drinks with a coworker after a long shift. The staff was informed, friendly, and excitable. The Scallop dish was phenomenal and my coworker loved her lamb special and had a hefty amount to take home. The mai tai was a bit strong for my liking but still good and true to style while the Pimms cup was one of the best I've had. It was a bit loud, just from all the voices echoing in this unique structure, but we enjoyed the lively atmosphere and the manager even checked on our table several times throughout the night as did the host.
Thank you so much Rene for your wonderful and descriptive review! I am thrilled that you both enjoyed yourselves! We hope to see you both back very soon, and don't forget our happy hour 7 days a week! Thank you again, Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
Vessel was far more casual than I thought it would be. Loud music, red lights on the ceiling. Waitress was fantastic; food was surprisingly good (apart from the Napoleon dessert - the cream had a glue-like consistency and odd taste); hostess needs training - seemed very frazzled, didn’t really listen, recommended the patio (it was 45 degrees outside and the patio wasn’t heated, merely covered), and took a few minutes to even greet us at the door. Overall, I would say this place is good for lunch or a very casual dinner with friends. Healthy menu, good flavors, proteins cooked very well.
Thank you so much for your detailed and constructive review. We truly appreciate your input and you taking the time to leave us feedback. We did have quite a busy day yesterday, and the weather made it difficult to accommodate all seating without being able to use our patio tables. I so apologize that you did not feel heard, and I hope that once seated you had a pleasant experience with us overall. We hope to see you again and leave you with an even better experience, Bar Amar General Manager
Thank you Dakota!!! Thank you Vessel staff!
Thank you so much for your review and for remembering your servers name so that we can tell him what a great job he did! We look forward to having you back soon! Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
I really enjoyed my first visit to Vessel NOLA. My date had previously visited with friends, and mostly wanted me to see the interesting ambiance. Even though we arrived early, we were seated right away. The dining room was pretty full and quite loud for a Wednesday night. The whole room really is stunning. I particularly loved the bar, but they have done an incredible job with this Gothic church space overall.
We had several cocktails, which were excellent, as they have an extensive cocktail menu. The fish dip appetizer was fantastic, especially accompanied by the pickle assortment. She had two other appetizers as her entrée: crawfish croquets and shrimp with Mexican street corn. I sampled these, and we both agree they were delicious. My scallops were cooked perfectly. The service was both friendly and attentive. I was impressed by the whole experience, and we will definitely return.
Thank you so much Timothy for your wonderful and descriptive review! I am thrilled that you both enjoyed yourselves and we are grateful to your date for recommending us, we love our regulars and repeat visitors. We hope to see you both back very soon, and don't forget our happy hour 7 days a week! Thank you again, Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
Great food and service in a really cool renovated church! Must try the shrimp and corn salad, amazing!!
Thank you so much Elyse!! We are thrilled you enjoyed yourself and can't wait to have you back again! We look forward to exceeding your expectations each and every time! Thank you again, Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
Thank you to my server for making this Sunday the most memorable of birthdays for my husband. We had the Scallops and the Pork Chop, both were excellent. For Dessert they made him this beautiful plate with puffed pastry and strawberries and wrote happy birthday in caramel.
We had dinner the two of us and than met with 7 or 8 friends in their lounge for late night cocktails. I love the setting here after around 9pm. Lively setting, even when slow, yet refined and relaxed. Will certainly be back!
Thank you so much Miss Loretta for your wonderful review! We so appreciate you taking the time out of your day to share your experience with others and we could not be more thrilled that we have left you with such a wonderful take on us time and time again! We look forward to having you back again very soon, and if there is anything we can ever do to better accommodate you please let us know! Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA

I’ve always known Vessel to make a great cocktail, but tonight I got to experience their full scope of wonderfulness in the Mediterranean burger, brown butter fries, and their crawfish croquettes. Simply put, YUM.

Another great night at Vessel. This has become my go to spot for business dinners and date night.
The staff is always very kind and attentive, the food is great, and a manager has checked on my table on each visit.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We are thrilled that you enjoyed yourself and we look forward to having you back again soon! Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
Came in to have a quick cocktail and bite to eat and was blown away by the building, the service, and the delightful food. We ended up dining on the patio, since this cold front hit. You must try this place. Our server Jess was fantastic and Bar the General Manager even stopped by to check on us. We had fish dip, market fish and scallops. Everything was fresh and tasty.
Thank you so so much for your wonderful review and for remembering your team by name!! We look forward to having you back very soon! Bar Amar General Manager Vessel NOLA
The overall experience was great. Jordan was attentive and well versed in knowledge of not only the cocktails but the menu as well. We will be returning.
