    Our experience was fabulous! The food was on point and absolutely delicious. It had a variety for everyone in our group. It’s a secret. Drinks were fantastic! A perfect find that you must try if you’re in New Orleans. Tatiana our waitress was so happy, helpful and made the experience exceptional!

    July 7 Sunday brunch was excellent!! We all enjoyed the food, relaxed atmosphere, hostess could have greeted us with a smile but the waitstaff made up for it. They were friendly and attentive, food was delicious, and drinks were awesome. We had the place to ourselves for about 15-20 and loved it. We will be back!

    What an incredible dining experience we had tonight at Vessel. Every dish we had was a composition of fresh, quality, flavorful ingredients. The craft cocktails are so innovative and some of the best we have had in New Orleans. Everyone should experience Vessel and it's amazing ambience.

    DJ was my server and provided great service. Per usual the food was great and the drinks were awesome. I highly recommend the spicy margarita.

    Unfortunately this experience was quite disappointing. Vessel in a nut shell felt just like that a “shell” of something that could have been good. After a 25 minute wait 3 of my four guest’s food came out cold. The fourth guest had to wait an ADDITIONAL 20 minutes for her food to come out after we all received our food. The food quality was mediocre and nothing to write home about. Our server was nice and pleasant but the kitchen staff was waaaay off yesterday. I live in New Orleans and this restaurant did not come close to the level of quality and cuisine our city is known for. Their menu was unimaginative and with out creativity. For the amount of money I spent there, I can name 10 places that are much better and worth the same amount of money. To add injury to insult, even after my 4th guest received her food, 20 minutes after the rest of the table, no one even asked to comp her meal. I still provided a 20% tip and left the place unsatisfied and unfulfilled. Like I said, it is unfortunate. Also, this will unfortunately be my 1st and last time at this establishment.

    The restaurant is beautiful with great character. The service was slow on the night we went. The food was not worth what we paid. Of course, we heard the brunch is great; however, we went for dinner.
