    The ceviche was a mixed variaty of the freshest best prepared fish. Amazing well done.

  • Katie Rose D.

    Favorite bar in nola. Seating outside in the back with live music. Great cocktails! You can buy a bottle of wine in the front store and take it out back.

    The cheese board is a must. Great small plates, that really aren't that small! 2 with a shared cheeseboard is plenty. Such a great atmosphere and lovely music

    Best concept; buy wine and cheese to retreat in the backyard listening to live jazz all evening long. Dessert; dark chocolate bark w sea salt. Need no more.👌

    Great vibe, a beautiful exposed brick building with a large wine selection downstairs. The food is not excellent but well worth the trip.

    I've had about half of their menu and every dish I had was delicious. Go with several friends so you can share plates.

    Magic. Come with a group and arrive before 7pm to get seats outside by the stage. Order a couple bottles of wine, some cheese, and small plates to share, and settle in for the night

    But your wine by the bottle at less than half restaurant prices. Listen to music in the courtyard or nosh in the upstairs dining area. Relaxed fun.

    Buy a bottle of wine in the shop up front, and take it to the torchlit back garden for some globalized bistro fare—think hangar steaks and grilled baby octopus with chimichurri. Read more

    DIY backyard vibe, choose your own wine and cheese on entry, live jazz, great food

    Menu changes, but the gulf fish ceviche was fresh and tasty. Smoked tofu with booked peanuts was great too.

    Buy the wine inside, then head to the back for some incredible food and listen to some awesome music.

    A true gem of Bywater. You can do cheese and wine with music or a full dinner. Delicious.

    One of my favorite spots. Grab a bottle of wine, pick some cheese and enjoy lovely live music backyard-style

    It's the kind of place where you could easily wander in for an afternoon glass of rosé and find yourself still sipping among the tiki torches at midnight. Read more

  • Scott S.

    Of course, sit outside if you can. But if not, grab a bottle or two and sit upstairs with friends. Good times for sure.

    BEST EVER. Make sure you get a block of cheese and a bottle of wine in the front. Live music later!

    While they're not so strong on making recommendations for wine, pretty much anything you choose will be great. For foods in the yard, the short ribs and roasted eggplant are committed to memory.

    Pork chop yum. Chicken liver awesome. Can't wait to go back!

    These guys have a killer wine selection. The outdoor patio and live music make for a perfect getaway from the city, without having to leave town. Love this place!

    The best rigatoni I think I have ever had. If you like mushrooms this is a must. The wine selection is good and you will find something that will delight. All that and live music.

    The second cheapest wine was transcendent

  • Jennifer K.

    I know the menu changes a lot, but if the bacon wrapped dates or the osso bucco are on there, do it.

  • Serious Eats

    A wine & cheese shop, serious kitchen, live music venue, and fun bar all rolled into one. Hand the cheese you buy to the cashier along with $5; you'll get extra grilled bread & cheese plate fixin's.

    Great spot off the beaten path with an amazing drink selection, delicious menu, and enjoyable outdoor seating. A gem.

    Cannot imagine a glorious world in which a place like this opened in NY. Read up before you go- the wine/cheese/food/seating can be a bit difficult to navigate 1st time. Or just find new friend & ask!
