Red Fish Grill Ratings and Reviews

We absolutely LOVED Red Fish Grille - My wife and I had Wonderful meals cooked perfectly - We began with an order of Alligator Boudin Balls, a New Orleans favorite then each of us had Scallops and their Speciality Red Fish ending the meal with Delicious Pecan pie - Our Server, Andrew was Excellent and Professional in his response to our needs. He also educated us about New Orleans history, helped us with our Wine choice and treated us as royalty at our visit. Note: we reserved our table at 5 pm which met our request of having a window, romantic corner seat adding to our dining experience - MUCH APPRECIATED all of the staff at this establishment! Definitely would dine there again and recommend Red Fish Grille to our friends.

I was recommended to try this restaurant by my hotel concierge while in New Orleans and my experience was terrible. The server had no idea what the specials were, we were delivered dirty (muddy) raw oysters that left dirt in our mouths, and my meal was completely wrong and when I sent it back I was informed that they had actually ran out of what I had ordered.
The price was also way more than the value of food and service that we received. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Great seafood, friendly atmosphere. We always eat there when we are in New Orleans. The staff is fantastic at making all ages feel right at home. The decor is beautiful and put's you in a great mood for a perfect meal.

Attentive waiter - Tallison. The redfish with covey rise farm vegetables was delicious. Fish portion could have been larger. The wood grilled redfish & lump crabmeat was also a hit. The BBQ oysters were also good even for those not fond of fried oysters. An incredible ending to the meal was the double chocolate bread pudding which tasted more like a soufflé.

The restaurant was clean and quaint. My husband enjoyed his dinner of fish, but I personally did not like the grilled shrimp...I think it was the spices used. The waiter was very good (even though a tad too talkative concerning the menu).

With so many choices for great food in New Orleans we could not have been happier that we chose Red Fish Grill. The service (Ronnie) was efficient and professional. The food was outstanding. We started with the Beer Battered Catfish Beignets and they were tender and flakey with a delicious drizzle of sauces. Our adult beverages were great and were not overpriced. For our entrees we selected the Jumbo Lump Crab Cake and the Wood Fire Grilled Red Snapper. Both were phenomenal in flavor and texture. We selected side dishes (ala carte) of sautéed spinach (so tasty) and creole potato salad (the best potato salad I have ever eaten). We completed our fabulous meal with the Double Chocolate Bread Pudding which was delicious but difficult to eat as it was stuck to the sides of the baking dish (a little overcooked) and there was no way to grab the dish and scoop with your spoon without loading your fingers with sticky sauce. Overall, the dining experience was exceptional and Red Fish Grill is HIGHLY recommended.

The food, wine and waiter were outstanding!! We had very fresh fish seasons perfectly. The wine selection was good. I was very nervous because the decor seemed very kitschy . However my worries subsided with the waiters vocabulary about wine and the appetizers . By the time dinner came we were happy and so was my 3 year old!!

This was my second time dining at Red Fish Grill, I was there about 3 years ago. My friend and I were in town for the Essence Festival this weekend and decided to go back, the food is awesome and so is the service.

The food is always great. We eat there every time we are in New Orleans. However our waiter was not as attentive as most usually are. They use to have two people that waited on you. So when they are busy that all is taken care of. Don't get me wrong, we will continue to go to Red Fish, we just didn't have the service they normally have.
