Service
 
"The perfect hostess" , owner JoAnn Clevenger, "greets everyone as though she has known them for life" as she presides "serenely" over this Uptown bistro, which draws a "local" following with its "superb" , "well-prepared" Contemporary Louisiana fare; the "small, antique" townhouse rooms are lined with the owner's "personal collection" of local art, adding to its idiosyncratic "charm."

The Upperline is my favorite New Orleans restaurant and has been for years. We are going down for a long weekend mid March with our daughter who has been accepted to Tulane's honors program and we are already looking forward to it. The service is superb as is the food. I expect I will run into the same waiters I last saw several years ago. 2 of my daughters have been there within and have have confirmed my recommendation. And I am bringing with me an addition to the proprietor's art collection from a Polish artist who dined there with me 10 years ago.

Food was excellent; however, extremely disappointed in the service. When my father brought a bottle of wine, expecting to pay the corkage fee, the owner approached us and yelled at us. She said how dare we bring our own bottle of wine when she sold wine at her restaurant. My father calmly said he would purchase a bottle of wine at the restaurant and pay corkage for his. Excuse me, but I’ve had no problem at much nicer restaurants with bringing in a bottle of wine. We were at Commander’s Palace the other night and had no problem. This is no way to run a restaurant and speaks highly of the owner.
