"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.

Went with a big group for small plates and snacking before an event in the Hyatt and could not have been happier with the food and the service! The duck poppers and the shrimp toast were the standouts but really everything was delicious.

Restaurant was enormous, vibrant and noisy. Obviously a hot spot for tourist and convention goers. The food was "whelming"- neither under or over. The turkey necks were great. The better Besh restaurrants are August and Luke.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Borgne. The cocktails were amazing and relatively well-priced. All of the dishes that we ordered were delicious and generally featured Louisiana seafood, as promised. We also loved the fresh, crunchy bread that was served before dinner. The atmosphere seems to function best for groups or work functions, but it was good for a romantic dinner as well. In short, great service, great food, and great value!

This is a restaurant in a big loud convention hotel. Right in the front, very HERE WE ARE. It's cold. It's noisy. The seats are super-uncomfortable. They sat us near the window (lovely view of the driveway) and we froze. (NOLA was having a cold snap). Service was slow but polite. Prices were high. There are much better options in this town. Trust me, I'm a librarian.

Being a Sugar Bowl pre-game crowd, this restaurant had an evidently well thought out plan: custom menu separately for drinks and food with helpful notes by menu items of interest. Service was very good considering the high demand at the convenient restaurant next to the Superdome. Lots of staff and accommodating-allowed us to add a couple of folks with extra chairs. Very very good food (did I see something about James Beard?) and loved my cocktail! Everyone enjoyed it and were thankful for the exceptional find!! Hats off to great management and staff

I was looking for a good place for dinner before the Sugar Bowl and found Borgne, pronounced "born". I am glad I reserved in advance. It was packed! And the food and service were very good. The oysters were fresh, and even the gluten free baked ones were very tasty. The Octopus appetizer was a hit, as was the Ceviche, but my sheepshead in parchment was diappointing - rubbery and not tasty. The panna cotta with carmel popcorn was a hit for dessert, though. The service was excellent, and timely, and we only had a short walk to the Super Dome. While this restaurant is in the Hyatt Regency, don't be deceived, it's not typical hotel restaurant fare. We were pleasantly surprised. And you will be, too. It's a neighborhood gem.

Had broiled oysters, oysters on the half shell, and duck poppers to start- all AMAZING!!! Split a garlic shrimp Po boy with my husband and we both thought it was good, not great. Overall a fantastic meal though!! Highly recommend!

Atmosphere is very sterile, like eating at a bar in a hospital. Not "cozy" at all. Food was OK, but standard hotel restaurant fare, nothing special. I felt that for the price, we could have ventured out a few blocks away and had a much superior meal.
Dessert was very small for the price ($9 each), cheesecake was dry, altogether wouldn't buy dessert there again.

We dined at Borgne for New Year's Eve so we enjoyed their Pre Fixe menu. The duck poppers and shrimp toast were the stand outs. The food was excellent. Our service was good, but could have been better. Overall, an enjoyable experience.

We had been to Borgne once before and like it then, but this time it was New Year's eve and the 4 course menu was just delicious. It was loud and active and because we made a reservation late, we were by the kitchen door....but that was ok. The food was great.

The overall experience was great. I took my parents to lunch and we all had the Thursday special. The waiter was very polite and informative when answering our questions about the menu. It was quiet, which allowed for great conversation. I would recommend Borgne to all of my associates.

This restaurant should be on your bucket list! From the first bite of duck poppers to the last bite of chocolate hazelnut pudding, everything was absolutely out of this world. We arrived in New Orleans on Christmas Day and had dinner at Borgne. As one member of our party said of the duck poppers, "I've never tasted anything like this before!" I would recommend this restaurant for any meal at all. If you take a date, a client, or your family here, you'll surely win them over.
And the service - it matched the food! We had a reservation for 8:00 pm, but since it was Christmas, many people were lingering over their meals, which was especially understandable because the food is so good. We bought a round of drinks and then the manager bought us a second round! The servers were charming, helpful, and attentive.
And for anyone who has celiac this place is especially delightful because the chef understands the requirements for a gluten-free meal, so you can eat without any worry and believe me, you aren't missing out on anything.
Brilliant! Five stars is not enough for Borgne!

We were in New Orleans for Christmas and had dinner here. It was super crowded and extremely noisy. Ambiance wasn't what I expected at all. Was set to be disappointed but was blown away by the great prixe fix menu choices and as the food came out my hesitation faded. The food is fabulous and the wait staff were fantastic! Great meal!

Borgne was one a the few restaurants open Christmas Day that could accommodate a party of 6. Their Christmas Prix Fixe menu has a good selection and was reasonably priced at $65.
Duck poppers, shrimp toast, gumbo, and hanger streak were great. The snapper cooked in a bag with kale was bland for my palate. Key line ice box pie for dessert selection was perfect.
Even with reservations, we waited 15 minutes for our table - the Holiday crowd combined with 4 course meal took longer to dine than other evenings. The hostesses were very apologetic and the duck poppers were worth the wait!!
