"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
If you are a foodie who likes seafood you will enjoy this resturant. The food is prepared with the freshest ingredients. I had the soft shell crab that is slight fried along with cabbage that was delish. The fish was moist and light. The Louisiana clams were very good and cooked to perfection.
MUST HAVE Area 3 oysters!!! Best we've had in a long time!
Crawfish bread was DELISH! We stopped in for a late lunch after my daughter graduated at the Superdome, which is walking distance. Main reason we chose this place was for that. It was wonderful to relax and have some great, light food. Would definitely recommend it. It is located inside the Hyatt, which also looked great!
Located inside the Hyatt Regency Hotel, Borgne offers great food with fresh ingredients. I highly recommend the shrimp toast appetizer and soft shell crab BLT sandwich for lunch. You will find both traditional fare and innovative fusion choices as well. The staff is very friendly and courteous.
The food was generally good, though not exceptional... We had the shrimp toast which was tasty but kind of drenched in sweet chili sauce... The grilled romaine salad was tasty though nothing exceptional... The octopus and gnocchi with ragu might have been the best appetizer though it was over salty - the gnocchi and octopus were perfectly tender. We had the seared snapper with crawfish over cauliflower which was fine, but needed more acid. My biggest issue was the atmosphere. I was honestly shocked when I got there - my husband and I were there for our anniversary, and the atmosphere just didn't fit the menu at all. This is someplace with $30 entrees, but the vibe on the restaurant is like a fancy sports bar - much more casual than the menu would suggest, huge screen tvs at the bar visible from all over the room, industrial tile floors, no tablecloths... I doubt I'll go back - if I'm going to spend that amount, I want to do it someplace that feels more special.
As my first meal in Nola, it was definitely the best, and only 2 blocks from my Airbnb. The Angel Hair with seafood was amazing - creamy sauce without being too heavy. I also go the brussel sprouts which were delicious (not sure very healthy, but worth it ).
We went for Mother's Day and the good was exquisite. Shared several plates amougnst the table and I would order everything again. It was nice to eat at a New Orleans restaurant and feel as though the quality was in the freshness and artistry of the food, rather than depending on heavy sauces and spices. And easy to order gluten free options. Definitely look forward to going back.
This was before the Neal Diamond concert and the noise level was excessive. However all the rest was wonderful. I had the stuffed flounder and my wife had the speckled trout in a bag. I was also given a birthday treat for dessert. The food was outstanding as was our server Hector.
We are locals and the food was exceptional.
This is ot your typical "hotel restaurant." Always a great meal and fun atmosphere. Noise level can be challenging, but that is typical of most restaurants these days. Kitchen is always accommodating to dietary needs and awareness of a shellfish allergy to be sure to take care in preparations. Tasty cocktails make up for it!
Everything was fantastic. I am so glad that we decided on 3 different appetizers for the group, as each one was exceptional. Fish entree was delicious and not too big (hubby and I split) so we had room for dessert! There again we all split 3 desserts and "wow" was heard from every bite. Seriously good food! Service was perfectly attentive without being overly attentive, cocktails were refreshing and unique, and we loved the oyster decor. I cannot wait to visit NOLA again and come back to Borgne!
The food was great, but the catfish sliders were not cooked all the way through, unfortunately. I most certainly paid for that later. That will just be someThe crawfish bread was amazing though. I will be back to try the angel hair pasta. I can say that I love the atmosphere overall.
My nephew was in town from Manhattan and wanted to take him to a New Orleans restaurant but not fight FQ traffic. Borgne is one of our go to restaurants. We had three great fish dishes, stuffed fish, pasta with shrimp and black drum with pecans. Started with a dozen of raw oysters which were good sized and delicious and duck gumbo which was exceptionally good. FInished with a chocolate "snickers" dessert. HIghly recommend.
Service was quick and very friendly. The food came out extremely fast. We were shocked. We had appetizer, entrees, and dessert in a little over an hour. The pork empanadas as an appetizer are served with a white BBQ sauce which is a little on the tangy side. The fish in a bag was flaky, seasoned with crab butter, and the side vegetables were tender. Their peanut butter dessert is just enough to split and has an ice cream texture. Great restaurant!
