This restaurant was everything we expected. All facets, service, ambiance, decor, efficiency and good quality were outstanding. The bbq oysters were fabulous, as were the entrees we ordered. But watch out for the double chocolate bread pudding...it's unbelievable! A great experience!

Ike best waiter in NOLA! Right on with recommendations. Very good meal!
A gem tucked away on Bourbon St
Loved the Red Fish Grill in 2005 and was so excited to see they were still up and running. The 2nd visit was better than the 1st. I will always ensure a stop in when in town from California. The food is spectacular!
Excellent food! Do not go wo a reservation.
Excellent food! Crab cakes, jambalaya, oysters, catfish, hush puppies, shrimp & grits, key lime pie and chocolate bread pudding! Do not go wo a reservation. Even with a reservation, there is a long wait. The hostesses are very dry, no smiles or apologies there! The servers are very accommodating and work hard to keep things moving!! The bar is packed as well, lots of people waiting on a table.

We were disappointed with both the food & service. Signature dish was poorly seasoned & lacked flavor. Grits were best part. Pecan pie was also bland. Servers were inattentive - long periods without checking back. Noise level was painful.
We were first time visitors to Red fish Grill. Totally enjoyed everything about our experience. The service was very good and everything was very fresh. We really enjoyed the soup, cauliflower and crawfish, was supprisingly good. Overall a great experience. Will go bac again.

This wasn't a bad spot necessarily, but it's definitely a tourist trap. The food and service were good, but it felt very cheap and the menu prices did not reflect that. There are plenty of other better seafood joints for a good NOLA experience.

A very good fish restaurant with traditional dishes. Professional service, nice cakes, good wine. It is big and very loud, this is the only drawback.

The food is always great, cooked perfectly. If you haven't had the bread pudding dessert, please make sure you get it. But order it with your meal, per the restaurant's request. Noise level is a bit high but not much different from any other restaurant in this part of the French Quarter. Not a huge menu, but I've never had anything here I didn't like.
Great vibe. Good for families and groups. Mixed set of dishes. Superb scallops, average crab sakes. Wait staff a bit abrupt. Not a listener. 5 stars for the bread and butter pudding. Should be a share dish.
LOVE, LoVE LOVE it
every time (this is our fourth visit) we eat at the Redfish grill the first and last night, it just isn't NOLA without the Redfish Grill for us!!!! can't wait to come back again!!!

The food was mediocre at best. The service was good. The fish was way over sauced, potatoes were served in one big lump. The Asparagus was fresh and good as was the greens. It was not a good value for the price. Would never return.

My husband got the red fish, one day blackened and the other with lemon butter, both amazing. I got the crab cakes both time and would get them every time! The chocolate bread pudding is sinful!! And our server John T was just the perfect addition to a great meal!

The service was attentive and we had a great table. My request to have my Mum's birthday acknowledged didn't even require a reminder. The food (scallops, blackened red drum and the signature red fish) arrived perfect with little need to wait. Dessert (the chocolate bread pudding and the white chocolate cheesecake) were unnecessary but wonderfully decedent.

Everything was great, but I felt like this was a touristy spot. With all the great places in New Orleans, this was just ok because of the ambiance. Food was great.
New orleans must eat
Barbecued oysters to die for. Fish cooked to perfection. Ike is a fantastic waiter. Great meal
It was a good experience
The waitress jasmine made the night worth while very intelligent well spoken young lady, the hostess however wasn't so great so the second impression was a little off which damaged the first (meaning the feel of the place/scenery) the food wasn't to my liking but was presented well and appeared well done!
Red Fish May 10
Food is exceptional, but dining area is noisier than other similarly priced restaurants.

Wood grilled red fish was flaky and flavorful
Overated Red Lobster
The tiny seafood main portions are overcooked, the vegetables are so over cooked they are not identifyable. They wash their oysters! That's just criminal. There is no reason to visit this restaurant other than to have one of the house special Bloody Mary's. Seriously! The waiter was just loud and obnoxious. No one was hard of hearing at our table.
Everything but the waiter
The food was excellent, the atmosphere was fun but our waiter was terrible. I would still recommend as the manager and rest of the staff were great.

Hostesses nice, waiter (Timothy) very engaging upbeat and helpful with menu. Food: grouper was AWFUL all I could taste was the grill. Very dry and the vegetables...... Couldn't tell what they were and non tasteful. I gave it to my husband and he gave me his risotto jambalaya which was excellent. I listed that it was our 2nd wedding anniversary in my reservation and not one person acknowledged!!!! How tacky and disappointing. I booked this place based of "great for anniversary " never going back

Signature Dish on Point!
I recently dined at Red Fish while in New Orleans for Mother's Day weekend. I was very pleased with my order, the signature red fish with lump crab meat, but my mom and sister were both a bit disappointed in their meals and the overall ambiance of the restaurant. After reading so many great reviews we were quite suprised by the loud interior of the restaurant. We also had made reservations and still ended up having to wait about 30 minutes for a table, I can only imagine what it might have been like if we hadn't made them! We did have a tremendous server however and he made it a very enjoyable dinner for us. The white chocolate cream cheese cake was also to die for. All in all I was actually a fan, and really enjoyed my gluten free meal, but my dining companions were less than impressed.
Best fish I have had in a long time! The Red Fish Special was outstanding!
Great food and waiter
The food was great but our waiter Timothy was excellent and very entertaining.
