I k is that this is a tourist place but I went b/c a tourist wanted to go. Really disappointing considering it is a Brennan's product. Gumbo bland and Luke warm, fish was OK but potatoes undercooked and greens were cold!

We were super excited to try Red Fish Grill. The atmosphere and layout was lovey and seemed very upmarket. We were overall quite impressed however we probably didn't pick wisely from the menu. The softshell crab entrée was impressive but in the end was fairly tasteless and oily. My husband enjoyed his fish entrée and we shared a sampler appetizer, which was nice. Particularly the alligator balls and crab claws. The kids meals were very plain and our kids would have preferred the standard chicken tenders etc, rather than the grilled cheese (which was nothing special) or the shrimp pasta which was also very bland.

This was our favorite restaurant in New Orleans. I had the special which was grilled fish with crab meat and it was delicious! My husband had the jambalaya risotto and it was also very good. The service was excellent. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu. I would highly recommend a reservation. We made a reservation at 7:00 for a 7:30 dinner. We waited about 5-10 minutes after arriving at 7:20 before being seated. I heard people at the front who were just walking in that we're told the wait was an hour and a half. Overall, a great seafood restaurant on Bourbon Street!!!

The food was pretty good, but the service was not so good, and after talking with some locals it seems like our experience is the norm. At this price point I expect the servers to pay a little more attention. With all the other options available, I would skip it.

I am from out of town and they changed their menu. Some of my favorites were not there. Also, took 40 minutes to get our meal which we had to eat very quickly to get to the Guns N Roses concert. Service was just way too slow.

First time dining there. Had NO idea the place was SO LOUD! Celebrated birthdays for 3 family members including 87 year old mother. COULD NOT HOLD A CONVERSATION! Everyone in the restaurant at every table was SCREAMING to be heard above the others talking around them. My mother just sat there in silence because she could not hear our conversations with all the noise. Never eaten in any restaurant that was sooooo loud. Nearly impossible to hear our waitress and had to yell out our order! Lots of kids running around! We had reservations yet had to wait 20 minutes for our table! When we arrived and heard how loud it was, we asked for a table in one of the smaller side rooms and explained that we had an elderly person in our group. Was told this was not possible, we'd have to wait over 2 hours for that area. I can certainly understand why the long wait for the smaller room, who wants to sit in the main cavernous dining area and have to yell to hold a conversation with your guests? I've been to mardi gras parades that were less noisy! Also, we had a party of 6 adults including 3 large men yet we were crammed into a booth and pretty much told take it or leave it by the two hostesses and some man who was very terse in his demeanor. The food was ok, sort of hit or miss depending on what was odered. I've been to the other Ralph Brennan restaurants in N.O. and will not be going back to this one. Would only recommend to people who are looking for a kid family restaurant with ok food and don't mind extremely loud places!

Great food and great service! An upbeat environment that is a great place to either celebrate a special occasion or go to for dinner with family and friends. We had red fish all the way around the table and not one bit was left over. If you can get a table by the window, the views of Bourbon Street also provide some nice entertainment!

Our server, Ike, was so enthusiastic that we couldn't help but get excited about our meal. The fish was perfectly prepared (albeit cooked with the lateral line...). Red Fish Grill has a very upbeat and energetic atmosphere - so if you're looking for something quiet and romantic, this isn't the place for you. My husband and I are quiet people and were at first cringing, but our server was just amazing and made the evening a fun pleasure.

Our dinner was delicious! What a great place to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary! Our waiter was very attentive.
Upon finding out it was our special day, they gave us the dessert free! It just happened to be there signature bread pudding! Wow! We will be back!!
