First, while the place is very nice and well appointed on the inside, the food quality and service leave much to be desired. We were greeted at the door by a host who did not talk. Not a hello, not even a welcome. I mentioned how many we had in our party and we were walked to a table, handed... More

From the minute you walk in you feel like you are stepping into a friend's home. The atmosphere and the service is down home comfort. The restaurant is down home Cajun style cooking but with the...

The meal was fantastic. Crab cakes were top notch. Tea was sweet and fresh tasting. You need reservations or expect wait on Sundays. Food makes it all.good though.

The food was first rate all the way, from the fried portabella appetizer to the crawfish cornbread with catfish and crawfish etoufee to the white chocolate bread pudding we took home for dessert....

A few years ago, when visiting antebellum plantations along the Great River Road in Louisiana, a tour guide suggested that we should have dinner at Grapevine Cafe in Donaldsonville. We did. It was wonderful. So when making our second trip to the region, we decided we had to go back. Grapevine Cafe has become a destination for diners from Baton... More

It IS that good! If you like Cajun and Creole food, this is as good as it gets! The atmosphere is yuppie... More
