Have never visited this establishment but had an outstanding experience last week. Wife was visiting N.O. with her girlfriends and staying at a local hotel that had no liquor services. The hotel recommended Vieux Carre to me to arrange a surprise champagne and wine delivery gift.
The gentlemen that I talked to was professional, helpful, and very courteous. Not only did he work with my 'middle of the road' budget, but he selected the bottles to match the women's tastes, arranged for snacks (cheese, salami, and crackers), and assured a very prompt delivery.
His attention to detail and overall knowledge was extremely comforting. Ordering via phone from 1000 miles away is a bit risky especially when possessing little knowledge of the product. The delivery was as promised and the wines, champagne, and snacks were a highlight of the gathering. It is worth noting that one of the women (slight wine snob) was from the Napa area and confirmed the the wines and champagne were of outstanding quality. My understanding is that these bottles were 'drained' rather quickly - women!!
Given my experience with Vieux Carre, I would highly recommend this establishment to others.
