Red Fish Grill Ratings and Reviews
Great food. Very busy place. Had an 8:15 reservation but were still put on a list and given a piece of paper with a number on it. We were then told to watch for our number to appear on the small digital screen next to the bar. Very poor system. Got seated about 1/2 hour later. Food fantastic. Service prompt but waiter had crummy attitude.
This restaurant uses a team of service persons, none of whom seemed to know what the other has ordered or not. Three different people stopped by the table to inquire if one of the others has taken our order or "did we tell ____ that". I asked the person who delivered the dinner for a second glass of wine and he said he would advise the server. The wine appeared after I was nearly finished with dinner. No one inquired, I was just unhappy. No one delivered the bill and finally the manager or assistant manger did and it was he who processed the bill. Perhaps my experience was one off, but it wasn't great. Food was OK, but the experience was sour.
Food was outstanding. I especially appreciated the waiter's suggestion of the Worcestershire Rosemary sauce for my grilled Redfish--it was perfect. The restaurant is crowded and noisy, but service was very good. We were disappointed that they were out of the bananas foster cake, but had a white chocolate moose cheesecake instead that was tasty. We skipped the chocolate bread pudding this time, but know for previous visits that it's excellent. Even the decaf coffee was surprisingly good.
This was an excellent choice. I wanted something with NOLA flair, but did not want heavy fried food or another bean. We had the Strawberry salad - it was excellent. We also shared the Black Drum with goat cheese. It was flavorful, yet light. The server was amazing and fun. I will return the next time I am in NOLA.
Once we were sat we immediately placed a drink order, it took a good 10 minutes if not more to receive those. I placed an order for dinner salad and was told the kitchen had lost the ticket, it ended up taking about 15 minutes for just a salad. The entrees came out very quick the bbq chicken was good. Last time I ate here was about 5 years ago. Would I be in a hurry to go back no.
The place is packed which was consistent with expectations based on the reviews. Service was attentive enough for a good experience (slightly slow, but not troubling) the house specialty entree red fish covered in crawfish was done well but somewhat forgettable. Dessert was outstanding including the bananas foster ice cream. A booth for a part of six was a little tight. Recommend requesting a table
The ambiance is like a large cafeteria with a lot of noise. That being said our wait for a table of 6 was 15 minutes late of our reservation. We waited at the bar where lotto like numbers appeared on 2 screens that you stared at till your number shows up. The restaurant served good drinks and the fish and appetizers were great. Nice dessert was shared by all. I highly recommend it if you can get past the noise.
We went to the redfish grill to get dinner before seeing a show at the Saenger. The show was at 8, our reservation was at 6:15. We went there specifically for their signature dessert which my wife loves. As everyone around us starting getting our food we realized the waitress either forgot to put our order in, or they messed something up in the back. Long story short, we didn't get our appetizer until after 7 and we didn't have time to get the dessert. On top of that, my wife's shrimp and grits were so salty they were inedible.
So in short, we paid almost $100 for a mediocre meal and didn't get what we truly came for. I expect better from a Brennan's Restaurant.
Red Fish Grill is one of the Brennan Group restaurants. I had no idea until a friend gave us a Brennan gift certificate. Reservations are highly recommended because it gets very busy!
The restaurant has three rooms; one large dining area which is very festive looking, a large bar in a separate room, and a smaller room which would be good for private parties. The drinks and the food were delicious. I specially liked the friend green tomatoes with crawfish appetizer, as well as the Black Drum entree.
We had a 6 pm reservation and it was a great time to get there our waiter was great and helped us to place order. We had BBQ oysters and alligator boudin balls for appetizers they were fabulous!!!
We had the Fly Fish for dinner and I can say never had a better meal.
Thank you Red Fish
Had lunch at Redfish Grill yesterday.
The service was great! Our waiter Ike was friendly, efficient and made great recommendations. The blackened redfish melt was really different and delicious.
The French bread was pressed panini style and was super crunchy! The accompanying redfish bisque was out of this world yummy!
Good shrimp po boy made better with Ike's suggestion of remolade sauce. Nice selection of wines by the glass added to this super lunch.
The overall quality of the food is good but in no way it is worst the price.
Like 18$ for a bowl of Gumbo ? Seriously ? There is basicaly nothing expensive in this meal + the portion is actually quite poor. I think it is the most expensive gumbo (by almost a factor 2) of the town and not in the top 5 most tastefull gumbo i tasted.
In the end,I would say that if you are rich and don't care about money it is an acceptable place.
PS : my friends took grilles fish and it seemed pretty good, but portions were ridiculously small for a 27.5$ meal (add the tip and taxes and you have a 5 course meal in a good french restaurent).
Food was very good. It was busy but the food came out quick. Husband ordered oysters and the owner came to apologize that the oyster line was running very behind. We told them not to worry about it because we were almost done eating. Disappointed with that but the food was good.
Food was fantastic. Our server, Anthony, was incredible. 2 members of our party ordered Dirty martinis with blue cheese stuffed olives. They did not have stuffed olives so our server took it upon himself to stuff some olives. The BBQ oysters are one of my top 5 favorite foods in New Orleans.
