    Food and service was outstanding. The kitchen was a bit slow in getting the food out but we really didn’t mind as it was an enjoyable atmosphere. Haley took excellent care of us. The goat cheese tart was fantastic. My wife got the scallops and I had the chop. Both were great. Topped it all off with the bread pudding. I have had A LOT of bread pudding and this was right up at the top. Great restaurant.

    Another delight on Magazine Street. Set in an old double shotgun, it it nicely decorated. The service was top notch and the food delicious. The alligator jambalaya dumplings were amazing. Prices were reasonable. This is another spot to add to your places to eat.

    Unfortunate evening. Kitchen must have lost our ticket. Waited over an hour to be served. No one even came over to acknowledge or apologize for the terrible service. We had to bring it to their attention. Food was excellent but spoiled due to the terrible service. Restaurant comped our entire meal, on the bright side.

    It was New Year’s Eve… We had a party of 8. Apolline had a six course pre-fix meal, which I think was a little too adventurous. The wait staff were busting their tails… But I think the kitchen just got backed up so there were literally 20 to 30 minute delays in between courses. We were there over 3 1/2 hours. Some people left. Now the food was excellent! Our waiter was excellent… Kyle… But we even ordered drinks in between our wine pairings. The wine pairings were probably 2 ounces…definitely not 3 and they were definitely not typical of New Orleans. I’ve had bigger pores at wine tastings. We were at the 6 PM seating and did not leave until after 9:30 PM. I think four courses would have been more manageable with a lower price per person.

    On the night we were there they appeared to be a bit understaffed. Service was slow and dishes coming from the kitchen in a disjointed manner. The staff was doing their best but just not enough of them.

    Some portions were quite small for the price of the entrees, and certainly not enough to fill you up, particularly the duck. The value for what you pay is disproportionate. The service and ambiance, however, were wonderful. I have had great experiences at Apolline, but I don’t want to leave hungry after a $200 meal.

    The food was excellent except it was all a little to salty. I love super salty food. Im a local who eats crawfish and drinks beer till my feet swell and it was even salty by my standards. Otherwise it was excellent. Highly recommend fried green tomatos. Drinks were great. Service and ambient excellent.

    The restaurant is on Magazine Street which is a collection of homes, shops and restaurants. Apolline appears to have been a home at one time. It's attractive decor is very pleasant. Unusual these days, the tables were covered with white table cloths. The wait staff was very knowledgeable and provided very good service. The food is very creative and even familiar dishes have an interesting twist. Here's a couple of examples we loved: Seared Diver Scallops Gulf Shrimp, Corn Maque Choux, San Marzano Tomato Sauce Pan Seared Verlasso Salmon Pan Seared with Skin On, Roasted Asparagus, Purple Fingerling Potatoes, Dijon-Dill Vinaigrette, Southern City Farm Microgreens The wine list contained a number of wines that I wasn't familiar with but the server provided some excellent advice. The prices were reasonable.

    Apparently we selected the wrong Saturday night to try Apoline for the first time. We both selected 3 appetizers and out of the six, the crawfish bisque was the only item worth a mention. My lamb ragu had scanty lamb and sauce for the ravioli size pasta, my kale salad was served on a hot plate, undressed, and the chicken poutine was barbecue sauce served over cold French fries with two small pieces of chicken. My husband’s Crispy pork belly was cold and rubbery, impossible to chew. Only the crawfish soup was memorable. There was over an hour weight between our second and third appetizers. The waiter said our order was lost in the kitchen, but most tables were also waiting. Was it a scheduling problem, did a kitchen worker not show up? We’ll never know, but we will probably not return. There are too many better restaurants.

    The waiter was great. The service was otherwise mediocre. It took forever (more than an hour) for the entrees to appear from the time we ordered. My entree, which was close to being burnt in preparation, was room temperature when delivered to the table. My review/recommendation is based on good experiences over many years, not what happened last night (which I hope was an anamoly).

    The hostes said "there is your table, no one likes it" and that began our evening. There was a very long wait between the app and entrée. There was a waiter actually running through the restaurant, in and out the front door which was not relaxing. The kale salad is very basic. The duck special was great.

    Let me just say: WOW! This restaurant might just be on my list of favorite restaurants of all time! It’s definitely my favorite restaurant in New Orleans! The service was awesome, the food was amazing (my scallops were cooked to perfection but they were a tad bit too salty for my taste; not enough to keep me from eating them)! I was with my family, including 2 children , and none of us could have been happier with our experience. My 7yr old ordered pork belly and loved every bite. My 10 yr old had the alligator jambalaya dumplings, I had scallops, my sister ate the pork chops and my husband had shrimp and grits and fried green tomatoes. No complaints or leftovers! We ordered 2 bread puddings for the table and my only regret is that we didn’t order one for each of us! Best bread pudding I’ve ever had, hands down.

    Clearly late lunch business is not welcomed. Not sure why reservations are available if the staff is unhappy to have a 1:45 seating which was abundantly clear. Less than 10 minutes after being seated told the kitchen needs our order, and 45 minutes after reservation as we were eating our entrees being told a 2nd drink would be a “last call.” I was embarrassed to have suggested this place to my friends, but previously it had been very enjoyable.

    The food is great -- always save room for dessert! This time (and only this time), the service was marginal. I had to ask for a spoon for gazpacho and when it didn't arrive 5 within 5+ minutes, I hunted down the bar-tender for a spoon. We were seated at our reservation time (6:45) but didn't get our first course until 40 minutes later. And it wasn't that crowded on a Sunday night. However, that's our only incident of poor service and I would still recommend Apolline to anyone wanting a great meal.

    We were excited to go back to Apolline after having a great dinner there a couple of months ago. Unfortunately last night’s dinner fell flat. The gazpacho and the Couvillion were too spicy to enjoy. Our server did the best he could with the limited staff the restaurant had. This allowed us to have a second bottle of wine, which is always a plus.

    The fish for the couvillion was too strong. Usually red fish is used. The menu could use more choices. The menu on line had more choices. The batter on the fried green tomatoes kept falling off.
