"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.

Borgne Ratings and Reviews

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!

My husband and I decided to go to Borgne because it was in the same hotel where he was attending a Seminar. Everything was decent, although we had to wait a long time for our food. There are so many outstanding restaurants in NOLA and this one was fine....not outstanding.

The perfect place to catch dinner before a show at Champions Square! Food was incredible, service was perfect and the bar makes a mean cocktail!
Only draw back is that the space is quite noisy...but you kind of expect that with such a popular place.

The wife and I stopped by Borgne before a concert at Champions Square.
The atmostphere was a little loud, but no overly so. The $5 tapas menu was excellent.
We shared the catfish slammer and the flat bread. After eating the tapas, I only wanted a salad. I loved the grilled salad with shrimp. My wife's gumbo was a little spicy for her tastes, but still very good.

Our food was delicious. For me, my personal preference for my order, seafood pasta, I would have liked the oysters cooked a little bit more. Although I love oysters, I don't care for them raw. This will not deferr us from eating at Borgne again.

Borgne was a selection for a business dinner and recommended by the hotel. The food was excellent and so was our waiter. Every item screamed New Orleans and you could tell it was prepared by a REAL chef and not just a cook. I recommended Borgne to people all week long. Wonderful place to eat.

I thought the meal was excellent, had 6 people from out of town, raved about the food. However, the place was a busy but the service was poor. The waitress seemed totally disinterested in serving us. Had to call her over several times to get drink orders, had to ask for bread, 8 people at the table was able to basically beg for one small loaf. Very slow in taking our orders, apps seemed to arrive in reasonable time, but entrees were a bit slow.
Service is part of the meal, we would have given our experience 5 stars but the service held us back and it appears that the wait staff could use some training.

We love Borgne and have dined there many times. The food and service are consistently good. We have celebrated a couple of family birthdays there and also gathered with friends for a casual get together. We are never disappointed!
