Welcome to Upperline


Restore —it’s the original meaning of restaurant. Restaurants were originally more than just a place to find a meal; they existed to soothe and bolster the weary soul with comfort and indulgence. My goal with the Upperline is to be just that, a haven for our guests: to help restore their serenity with great Louisiana food and wine, and of course hospitality.

At the Upperline, you’ll always find classic New Orleans dishes and newer inspirations exploring our ever-evolving vibrant Creole culture…We’re glad to welcome you.
