"When people ask where in New Orleans to go for great local seafood,
I want the answer to be Borgne." - Brian Landry, Executive Chef
Chefs John Besh and Brian Landry grew up fishing on Lake Borgne, the epicenter of coastal cuisine in Louisiana.
Their shared passion for Louisiana seafood brought them together to create Borgne, a celebration of coastal Louisiana with a touch of Isleño influence. Borgne will be a gathering place for locals and visitors alike, a CBD lunch spot, a quick bite before the game and a casual setting for a delicious dinner with friends.

We ate Tapas one night and had a full dinner with friends another night during my wife's business trip to New Orleans. Wine choices were good at half price glasses on Thursday, good choices of tapas, reasonably priced. The soft shell crab with field peas was excellent as were the crostinis. Excellent seafood choices for dinner. Saturday night was very busy and service was a bit slow, but the food was great as was the dessert. Lots of good vibe, not to loud but busy. Definitely not your typical hotel restaurant. Definitely a do over when we return to NOLA.

I decided to eat here before a performance at the smoothie king center. I had done this once before and was happy with the experience, but not this time. The restaurant was so loud we could not hear the music. The 12 dollar salad consisted of prickly greens that looked as if they harvested them from someone's yard. The menu said lettuce and I got weeds. The oysters were done well, but there were so few of them. The server was very good and the assortment of beers and other cocktails was above average. I cannot recommend this and it seems like another typical overpriced hotel eatery.

I have been to the restaurant previously and enjoyed the food and wonderful happy hour, however this visit was different because there wasn't a happy hour as advertised. This was upsetting because my friends and I came to the restaurant to enjoy the happy hour choices and then have diner before a concert. I would recommend putting on the website that the happy hour changes depending on local events, that way there isn't any false advertising!

We had a group of 9 and celebrated a co-worker's birthday at Borgne. The hostess and waitstaff were wonderful! We had a fantastic meal with perfect menu choices for everyone in our group. Our waiter, Michael, was great. We will definitely be back!! Thanks!!

We came for happy hour prior to the Beyonce Concert. I called to let them know we would be late for a 4:30 reservation and we were met with kindness. The happy hour menu had 7 appetizers for $5 each and $7 white sangria carafes. Everything we tried was amazing and we left very full for a decent price.

The food at this location was quite good. Duck poppers were awesome, a local greens pear salad, a gorgeous ceviche and slow roasted empanadas were our starters.
To finish out lunch, we had a bowl of their terrific Duck and Andouille Gumbo and a Roast Beef Poboy. Their Poboy was unfortunately a bit unimpressive considering it's New Orleans. Other than that - all the other food was very impressive.

The food was great, but our waiter was totally off. We ordered and waited forever for drinks. Which were brought out after our oysters. One drink was missing. These were all brought out what appeared to be a manager. The waiter showed up much later and started setting up the table for oysters. We told him that we had already gotten them. The table was even cleared away by the time he finally showed back up. This dude was completely clueless. Since we had been there before, we knew we should have received bread and butter. Which is excellent at this place. So once our entrees showed up, I had to ask for some since it had never showed. Never did get a refill on my tea. So overall, the food tasted great. The service on the otherhand was just downright laughable.

Service was a little slow but the place was packed! Festival Lemonade cocktail was fantastic. Shrimp Toast app is really great. Nice place to go before an event at the arena or the dome as it is within walking distance.

So much fun! Food was divine & very creative! Ambiance was delightful (especially loved the columns clad in oyster shells & hard wire!) Really enjoyed the organic feel like the menu on the clipboard & the bread served in a paper bag! The carafe of homemade Sangria was especially addictive! The waiter was pleasant & helpful & attentive! Perfect evening!

Understand farm to table concept, but the choices were very few. Along with the high price of only a protein . Then having to order a veg and a starch separate at that price point was not a good thing. We ordered a side of broccoli and told the waitress please cook soft because that is the only way we could eat it. So it came out el dente and we informed waitress it needed to be soft like we told her when we ordered it. She apologized and offered to send out another order. We excepted, and I even showed her what I meant by trying to insert my fork into the broccoli that didn't happen. Told her when the fork goes in without restriction, that is the way it needed to be cooked. Well second order came out more el dente than the first. So she went back into kitchen to talk with cooks and came out and told us the is the only way to prepare fresh farm to table broccoli. And offer not to charge us for food we couldn't eat. Naturally we excepted.

First time dining at Borgne, and our party of four found all of our selections to be creative, but not fussy. Our server was warm and casual in demeanor, while appropriately attentive and professional. We were glad that in a city of so many restaurants, we chose Borgne.

My family and I was disappointed with the Borgne restaurant. In the past we have enjoyed Besh restaurants; August, Luke, cafe at the D-Day museum. However the food was not worthy and the prices were high: broiled oysters too much cheese, soft shell crab no flavor, fried chicken small portion and mushy crust; not crispy. The peanut butter bar desert was the best dish on the menu. Seems like they used the Besh name but not the quality. Will not recommend or return.

I had high expectations and they were exceeded. The appetizer, turkey necks, was surprisingly good. The entree, black drum with brown butter, pecans, and lump crab meat, was outstanding and even had a little heat. The dessert, a peanut butter semifreddo, also was outstanding.

We had a wonderful meal at Borgne--the food, particularly the salad and soup, were delicious new spins on classic fare. The golden gazpacho, made with yellow bell peppers and tomatoes and chunks of lump crabmeat, had a smooth, almost creamy texture, and the flavor was intense and bright. The salad of grilled peaches on greens with a tangy vinaigrette and soft, almost melted burrata was divine! Only drawback for us was that, as a restaurant to celebrate a wedding anniversary, it's not exactly conducive to quiet, romantic conversation--but we knew that going in, and the great food and service made up for it. We had been given a gift card for the occasion, and next time we visit Borgne it will be to celebrate the food, not an anniversary!
