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.

Most amazing meal. It was loud and busy but the service and food was great, Kevin was our waiter and he gave us some great recommendations. We had a sampler to start with shrimp hush puppies, marinaded shrimp, and the best part of the meal were the crab claws that came in the most delicious lemon white wine sauce. Honestly the best thing we ate on our trip to NOLA. Definitely try the gumbo it was delicious as well as the redfish. This is a must go!

Fun, lively restaurant with great food and service. The jambalaya risotto was the best meal I had in the Quarter. Our group of 6 all enjoyed their meals--the red fish and the bbq oysters were outstanding. As all say, don't miss the chocolate bread pudding--nothing like it!

Amazing food and service!!! Can't wait to return for my wife's birthday in September. We will try to make it to Red Fish Grill on all future trips to New Orleans.
French Quarter gem
Four friends from Maryland and Virginia met in New Orleans and had our first dinner at Red Fish Grill. While the restaurant was a little noisy, we loved everything we got to eat, mostly fish dinners, and were pleased with the attentive service. I would definitely recommend Red Fish Grill to anyone traveling to New Orleans.
Great food and right on Bourbon St.
Great food and location. The staff was friendly and efficient. There are many local dishes on the menu, and the red fish was super.

We were in New Orleans for two nights and wanted to make sure we sampled a good local fish restaurant. There's so many restaurants in New Orleans so it's good to use Tripadvisor as a guide. We booked through OpenTable which takes the hassle out of it all - certainly beats trudging the streets looking for somewhere. It was extremely busy and our table wasn't quite ready so we went for a drink in the bar & they gave us a buzzer to let us know when the table was ready. Our waitress was lovely - very attentive and friendly (sorry, can't remember her name). We chose fish fillets on the grill and it was very good. The atmosphere was relaxed and casual and despiet the business, we did not feel rushed. A very enjoyable meal!
Excellent Food and Service
The entrees (redfish with crabmeat and crab cakes), raw oysters, and desserts were excellent, as was the service. The drinks were good, except that the old fashioned seemed to be missing the necessary bitters.
Great food and service
We seem to make it here every time that we go to New Orleans. It is more of a casual atmosphere that several "well known" restaurants in town. The food has always been good. But the key is the double chocolate bread pudding, now with some vanilla ice cream on it. The highlight of any trip to New Orleans!

We had never tried oysters before and basically my wife was unwilling. Our outstanding waiter convinced us to try the fried oysters. Well, both of us now are complete converts. Excellent service! The fish was amazing, but because of the wood grill my wife said it was a bit drier than she's used to. Overall a wonderful dining experience and we will definitely return.
It's easy to become jaded after sampling New Orleans restaurants - so many extraordinary choices. Red Fish proved an unexpected find, with many menu options, excellent preparation and friendly service on a crowded Friday night. The fresh fish alternatives - mix match sauces/preparations were great and the Chef's combinations were flavorful and a good portion size. All in all, the best restaurant during our visit.

Red Fish was wonderful and the service was fantastic. Out server Hannibal was on the spot with recommendations and quick service. The food was excellent and they even brought us a dessert for my birthday! No skimping here!

Very fresh seafood, excellently prepared. Knowledgeable and helpful staff that helped us navigate menu choices in accordance with our dietary needs (gluten, lactose, etc.). Energetic New Orleans vibe. Definitely a place you should not miss.
Return To Red Fish
Red Fish Grill is on our list of "must" restaurants every time we vacation in N'Awlins, this trip no exception, but if anything, it was even better than we remember. I love the signature red fish and lump crab entree, wife satisfies her jones for grits. Soup was oyster artichoke, good good. The chocolate bread pudding was the best dessert we had this trip. Outstanding service from Garrett. We'll keep coming back.
New Orleans food
We came to New Orleans for vacation and wanted to try different restaurants for dinner. My husband wasn't too keen on seafood, but I definitely wanted to try it. I had the redfish with crabmeat on top - it was delicious and I would really recommend it. My husband had the fried chicken and loved it. Restaurant was in great location and we would definitely come back.
Great food for a casual dining experience
The service was very good and the food was delicious. The whole experience was pleasant and comfortable. For our first time in New Orleans, this dinner experience has been one of the highlights of our trip.
Very NOISY! Amber our server was great. We got separate checks and everything came out on time.
Nice restaurant & bar
Full bar while you wait for your table. 2 screens on either side of the bar to see when your number is called to be seated. Fresh hot bread served with butter. Good food. Did not partake of the dessert that if ordered needs to be pre ordered in order to be ready.

Wife and I had dinner there. The gumbo was very rich and very very tasty. The jambalaya was also very good. I had the specialty redfish with crab meat. Very well prepared. But not tasty.
