The food here was outstanding - the service was slow. We ordered raw oysters and they took 25 minutes to arrive. We ordered some Gumbo which came out quickly and was delicious and filling. The oyster delay obvioulsy wasn't the server's fault - they had a shucking problem. But, it was New Year's Eve afternoon and they had to expect a crowd - where was the help?\r
Instead of apologizing for the shucking issue and ... view more
There are so many restaurants in New Orleans, it's a tall order to narrow down which ones to visit while there. Visit this one for sure. Despite it being in one of the city's most trampled sections, seating and service were great and the food was to die for. The sesame tuna was absolutely perfect, one of the best I've ever tasted. My girlfriend, who after days of NOLA seafood was ready for a steak, got what she said ... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
I don't think I can ever forget the perfectly fried oysters that I had for dinner here. The service is impeccable too and just a perfect dining experience. Our waiter couldn't have been more gracious during my last visit and he had a genuine sense of excitement and pride to be working there. I wish i could remember his name! I've been back quite a number of times since its Katrina reopening and i must say that they ... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
We were just there last night (unfortunately, we're back in cold-ass Denver tonight). The Red Fish Grill was our best meal in New Orleans, although the Gumbo Shop was a very close second. We had the BBQ oysters, crusted andouille gulf fish, a really interesting (good interesting) hickory flavored tuna, gumbo, and the double chocolate bread pudding. Our servers (Greg and Paul) were awesome. Very informative, very ... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
After coming in town yesterday, we were hoping to find some place good and near our hotel in the French Quarter. Of course, we worried that too many restaurants would be closed or otherwise too hard to get into. However, I made reservations at Red Fish Grill. Even with the limited menu, the food was fabulous (we started out with the house salad; then I had shrimp creole and my dining companion had grilled shrimp).... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
First NO meal was fantastic! Order the Bourbon Street Sample for appetizer: BBQ Oysters, Crawfish Cakes, Coconut Shrimp and Alligator Sausage! Excellent. Entree's were plentiful and well prepared! Double Chocolate Bread Pudding--one word: HUGE!
Great ambience, good service, great time.
My wife and I had a 7:30 reservation and arrived at 7:00 (30 min early). However, we were seated immediately. Other parties we saw without reservations had about a 30-45 min wait. Get a reservation! We both at the seafood gumbo with alligator sausage... sounds scary, but it was actually very good! For entrees we both ate their famous Sweet Potato Catfish and it was amazing. Enormous piece of fish with a delicate ... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
We decided to try this restaurant on the advice of online reviews and recommendations from the hotel staff where we stayed. We ordered red fish and grilled res snapper. Both dishes had generous portions and were well prepared and extremely tasty. Do yourself a favor and save room for the double chocolate bread pudding. I woke up the next morning still thinking about it! The wait staff was well groomed, courteous... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
