Disappointing

I have been so eager to try this place and was completely disappointed. The other folks at the table seemed to have nice meals but mine was awful. According to the waiter Mahi Mahi was the freshest fish on the menu. It was over cooked and uninteresting. If I wasn't a guest of my boyfriends company I would have sent it back. :(.

Editorial review from Citysearch

The freshest seafood in the city! I ate things I thought I didn't like and loved them (lobster ravioli)! The biscuits were devilish, just like the waiter mentioned, so delicious but don't let them trick you into filling up on them! We did a tasting menu and the bartender was nice enough to do a mixed drink pairing with the dinner for me since I'm not a wine enthusiast. GW Fins has definitely set the bar on seafood!

Excellent dining experience

Impossible for this place to get any sort of bad review! Top new Orleans chefs, food is perfect in every way from presentation to taste. However, they are very pricey and have a very limited menu.

Awesome!

We love this place and visit every year! It is on our rotation - GW Fins and Muriel's every visit. The biscuits are amazing and they were even willing to give me the recipe! Every appetizer, salad and entree we had tried has been amazing! The service is always personable and comfortable. In a city with amazing food, this is one of the best!

Great place for a romantic night out!

This place was definitely one of our favorites in New Orleans. It has a great ambiance and wonderful staff. The menu is different every day and there is a nice variety of choices. My husband and I ordered different seafood entrees and were very pleased with the freshness of the fish and scallops. The meal was pricey but definitely worth it! We would definitely go back there again on our way through the city!

good seafood

i went with a fairly large group (8) and yet we were seated promptly. we all had a great time and the service was not bad. i had the lump crab salad (mixed greens, asparagus, and tomatoes with a creamy basil dressing) to start and that was delicious. the buttermilk bread, by the way, was warm and so good -- i had 4!!! i also had the chilean sea bass (braised in a hot and sour shrimp stock with enoki mushrooms, sauteed spinach and boc choy) which felt so buttery it just melted in yo...view moreur mouth. i also tried a friend's scallop entree -- that was very good too. everything there was just good. i would go back for some great seafood!view less

OOOOOOOOH so good!

They went above and beyond our expectations for our 1st anniversary. The table was specially decorated, menus were personalized for the occasion, and desert was brought out with an additional plate that read, ""Happy 1st Anniversary"" written in chocolate. The entire staff made sure we were well taken care of.
I haven't even mentioned the food. The Lobster dumplings were incredible. I had to remember my manners to stop myself from licking the plate. The grilled scallops with the riz
...view moreoto was to die for. I was so enthralled by my meal, I don't remember what my husband had. (Actually, I think he had the sesame crusted tuna.) To finalize the meal, we split a creme brulee. It was a creme brulee in it's finest form. (no cornstarch or gelatin used that I could tell).
I have no clue about the land based entrees.
In NOLA, you gotta eat the seafood.
