Set in an 1877 townhouse, Upperline Restaurant is brought up-to-date by a collection of modern paintings. This oasis of Southern charm and Creole traditions creates a nostalgic ambiance. For starters, try Crispy Sweetbreads with Mushroom Ragout and Grilled Filet Mignon or the braised Lamb Shank. You may complete any meal with the sweet treats, including a yummy creme brulee with crushed pralines.
Our first impression of the restaurant should have been a sign when I called for reservations and was given the third degree & when the friends we were going with called to ask for directions and before giving directions they had to say whose name the reservation was under, where they were staying & what there name was. However, we still went, upon arrival we found a charming little house along with a very eclectic art collection. We were seated and immediately before we could look at a wine list a server was there and wouldn't give us a chance to look at the list just wanted to know what we wanted so I rushed to order and she lost the sale of a bottle of wine. The menu lacked in selection while what I ordered a filet mignon was good the service was unfriendly and rude. We ate our meal and left, I can honestly say I would never go back or suggest this restaurant to anyone going to New Orleans there are so many better places to go with service that is amazing.
This is a jewel hidden in our neighborhood. The owner is a fabulous woman who truley cares about the experience her patrons are having. She really adds to the ecclectic charm of this jewel of a restaurant. Have the oysters!
