Red Fish Grill Ratings and Reviews
Red Fish Grill, as is typical of Brennan's restaurants, is highly reliable and very good. My only complaint is that the service at lunch recently was so over-solicitous that it disrupted our conversation. The server checked in with us about our satisfaction twice and the manager came to the table to assure us of the restaurant's desire to please. Enough, already! If we have a problem, we'll let you know.
The food was great. Our server Caleb was also great. However on the night of our visit we were enjoying a very nice dinner when a party of 20 people came in for a birthday party. They were supposed to be a party of 14. They totally disrupted our dinner by moving tables and chairs around us. The party was disruptive and rude. Totally ruined our nice dinner. They not only disrupted our dinner but the other couple sitting next to us. This was a total downer for us. This was our first visit to Red Fish Grill. We would go back the next time we are in New Orleans. The establishment can't control what patrons are going to do.
It was close and convenient for a quick dinner. It did not live up to its reputation. After 10 days in NOLA it was one of my least favorite meals. The red fish was passable, not overly flavorful and more attendant veggies than fish. A dish of shrimp and grits was bland. The steak was nothing soecial. Service was good. It is a crowded and loud restaurant, not conducive to an intimate dinner.
The food was good, the ambiance was a bit too noisy for me but may be ok with others, value was ?, but what ruined the evening was the waiter snarling at me (after a $20 tip)-- "hand over the pen bud!!" after I had mistakenly stuck his pen in my shirt pocket after signing the bill. I will never set foot in the place again--and will advise my friends to avoid the place for somewhere that provides value and service commensurate with the prices charged.
So glad to have found this restaurant! Everything was amazing from our drinks (they even had yuengling!) our appetizer to our meal. Service was very attentive even though it was totally packed. Such a fun atmosphere. The food had so much flavor I can't even describe! A little more pricy than we were expecting but so worth it in my opinion.
My husband and I were pleased with everything from our drinks we ordered to a wonderful salad and red fish soup. I had the signature dish and it was amazing. We were there on Mother's Day close to 9. It was very busy so the noise level was higher and our waiter was running around and rushed. Other than that, 2 thumbs up!
We come back every time we are in New Orleans. Our waiter Kevin was very helpful with suggestions with our guest that had not been there before this evening. It would have been more enjoyable for us, however the party sitting behind us was very loud. I would recommend not sitting in a booth for this reason!!!
We were there to celebrate Mothers Day and a college graduation - found the restaurant on Open Table. Didn't know it was a buffet-style but That just made the experience even more sweet .
All of the food was outstanding, from the creole and Cajun to the prime rib. Everything was well prepared, flavorful and quite authentic. This is an excellent restaurant for a large party or celebration. Right in the heart of the French Quarter, you experience New Orleans at the Red Fish Grill
Booked a table because our visit to New Orleans was on Mother's Day, which we knew meant crowds. Unfortunately, Open Table and the restaurant did not tell us that there was a Mother's Day "special" buffet @ $60/person and $20/child--no order-from-menu options available. Even though the buffet was well staffed and moderately varied, we are not big eaters, and I dislike buffets. We did sample dishes we may not have ordered, but overall, not a good value or a great experience for us. Sadly disappointed.
We thought the food, drinks, and service were all great. However as a table of two in a packed room full of Bachelor & Bachelorette party groups it got a bit crazy. If you are with a big group and want to have good food/drinks in a loud fun and casual atmosphere this place is perfect. Quiet dinner for two.. not so much.
Great food and service! Red Fish has a very fun, casual feel and is crowded, but there is a nice energy there. The food was phenomenal, especially loved the alligator boudin appetizer and house special of redfish topped with crawfish. Also really enjoyed the grilled speckled trout with veggies, no guilt! And since we ate so healthily, we indulged in the special chocolate bread pudding which was topped with the most delicious chocolates. Unbelievable! Not too much, delicious. The service was impeccable. Would recommend and will definitely go again!
