Overall experience was very nice and upscale. Food and wine was tasty and moderately priced. Our biggest complaint was the music. Would have been more appropriate and complimentary to have soft jazz playing.

I haven’t been to Capital Grille in a long time. This was one of the best steaks I’ve ever had and what I appreciate about the Capital Grille is that it is not loud in there like some of these other steak or seafood restaurants. We had a beautiful 30th anniversary dinner and they treated us wonderfully. I highly recommend them again!!

My Mr and I decided to dress up and do date night here because we love the service, food and ambiance. We ordered 3 cocktails: Private Plane, 24 Karat, Smoked Old Fashioned. All were great! Appetizers: Lobster tacos and crab cake The crab cake is the best in the city! No fillers, but a beautiful panko crust on the outside Lobster tacos were also delicious, as the meat was cooked to perfection. Mains: Lamb chops and 10 oz filet (cooked medium plus; a great suggestion from our server. I don’t care for medium, but don’t quite want it medium well, and this was perfect)! The lamb chops came with a chimmichurri and it was delectable! We also ordered lobster mashed potatoes for a side and the half portion was plenty! Will definitely be back

Dining at Potento was a truly exceptional experience, made even more special by the incredible hospitality we received. Upon discovering that our party was also from South Louisiana, Chef Danny Trace graciously came out to our table for a delightful visit. His warmth and genuine interest made us feel right at home. Our server, Nicholas Velazquez, and his team did an amazing job caring for us. Nicholas epitomized professionalism, offering fantastic recommendations that enhanced our meal. His impeccable timing and pace ensured a smooth and enjoyable dining experience. Moreover, his personal touch and friendly demeanor made our evening memorable. We ordered a variety of dishes, including the Carpaccio, Duck, Veal Chop, and Scallops—all of which were excellent in flavor. Each dish was prepared to perfection, showcasing the kitchen's culinary skills. To top it off, you can't go wrong with any desserts; they are all delightful. I would certainly recommend Potento for an outstanding dining experience. Be sure to request Nicholas as your server—his presence will elevate your visit.

About the restaurant
Vino & Vinyl is a chef-driven restaurant/supper club, with hand-selected small-production wines, a short craft beer list, music played on vinyl records, and the paintings of local artists on the walls.

Our Happy Hour consists of eight different small-bite food options (like the Chef's Fried Rissoto with tomato sauce, or the Pork Belly Bites with a bourbon glaze!), and a dollar off of all of our wines by the glass.

But dinner is where it's at. Be sure to check out our menu online for all the current offerings! Also, the Chef will offer a feature now and then, so make sure you ask your server upon arrival!

For the music, we play a wide variety of old and new... all on vinyl records!

The minute we walked in we were greeted and instantly felt welcomed and a great vibe. The owner was so personable and gave us the history of the place and the perfect recommendations. The service was warm and authentic. Ok the food….. OMG!!! I normally wouldn’t eat Monte Crisco but was delicious. The croquets were the perfect balance to the Monte. The shrimp and grits was levels and levels of flavor. What a gem of a find. Will for sure be back and try something new and delicious.

Staff were excellent and attentive. The live band and vibe were phenomenal. The physical space is nice, detailed and clean - I especially like the blue textured cups and flowers in wine bottles. Cheers!
