Red Fish Grill Ratings and Reviews
Very busy restaurant, I recommend making a reservation. Waitress was overwhelmed with a large table with serperate tickets but she never showed it. She knew there was only 1 person making drinks so she was smart enough to pre order drinks so we never ran out. Very pleased with our dinner and our first night in town.
My wife and I celebrated a special occasion and two complimentarily glasses of champagne were sent to our table. We arrived during lunch so we had a limited menu. I tried the shrimp and grits for the first time. This dish was amazing with great flavor. My wife had the fish taco's that were bland in taste, but the corn that accompanied this dish was delicious . We also tried the alligator boudin balls with a mango chutney and the crab claws bites. Both dishes were great ! Our server was nice and service was good. I would love to return and try their dinner menu.
The oysters were not what was expected. They were fried with maybe some bbq'ing but not grilled on the half shell as was assumed. The catfish was decent but have had better. Gumbo was the way to go with a bowl as an entree. Wood fired fish was also good. Service staff was the highlight but the food was lacking especially in NOLA.
This was our first trip to New Orleans, and Red Fish Grill was one of the restaurants we tried. The food was amazing. My wife is gluten free, and they had great choices for her. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. We would definitely go back if given the opportunity.
We were a little leery with the restaurant being on Bourbon Street; yet after being disappointed at Armand's, we thought, let's try something new. It was wonderful! Great atmosphere, great service and delicious food and craft cocktails. Even blueberry lemon parfait for dessert was wonderful . The staff could not have been more accommodating.
We tried Red Fish Grill based on previous recommendations. We were encouraged to make reservations ahead of time. Upon arrival, we were immediately seated and greeted with waters and ready to take our drink orders. Try the moscal mule and Bloody Mary. We ordered starters of Bodine balls and BBQ crab claws. Our Vegan had the watermelon salad. Two banquettes in paper were also delivered along with whipped butter. Our party ordered the grouper and crab cakr entrees/ incredible! The crab has a light haystack topping of crunch that balances with the creamy goodness of lump crab - Yum! Finished off with raspberry and blood orange sorbets
The food was great. My grandson ordered 2 different fish to be told you were out but he settled on the speckled trout. It was great. My other grandson has aspergers and is a picky eater. Only eats chicken tenders. The waiter heard this and told jack he'd get that for him. It was great. He loved it and I appreciate the accommodation. We will all be back.
Checked Redfish Grill out while in town for the Essence Festival. A couple of the appetizers were good but we were disappointed in our entrees. I ordered the redfish signature dish. While it was somewhat flavorable it was served to me lukewarm. My husband didn't like his risotto dish at all and sent it back.. He then ordered the crab cake and it was hot atleast and tasty. Our overall experience was just ok but I definitely wouldn't return. There are too many other good restaurants in New Orleans to settle.
Mix up in the kitchen so the entrees took too long to be served. Not the waiter's fault - just a lot of big groups. But it meant that the food was a bit cold by the time it got to us. Lots of apologizing but nothing was taken off the check to accommodate. A missed opportunity.
Experience was okay. Not a wow experience, but good for casual dining. Food was also good but again not a wow type of food. Service was also okay but not a five star restaurant type of service. Overall experience was good at a moderate price. No complaints but not a high end restaurant.
