Red Fish Grill Ratings and Reviews
We had a party of 8 for my fiance 50th birthday. We got sat ontime even though the place was packed. Our server was a pro and was very attentive to our needs. The food was top-notch! Lotsa seafood selections to choose from. I had the gumbo and jambalaya and both we amazing! I would definitely eat there again!
Another Brennan's ....but this one is not worth the money. It's not outrageously expensive, but better seafood in the Quarter for the same price or just a bit more. Our food was lukewarm and one person's was basically room temperature. The waiter was indifferent when we mentioned it. And the place is WAY too noisy for any sort of a conversation so ...be forewarned and set your bar of expectations on LOW.
We had a group of four. The review that we read showed you to be ranked number nine. We disagree. We thought you should be number one. Everything we ordered was excellent and the service was above satisfactory with a full house. The next night we ate a restaurant that was supposed to be good and found it to be horrible. Every fish dish was covered in its own sauce that turned the dish into a nothing. We think you are the best.
This is a great place to find Louisiana and Cajun dishes very well done. Their Jambalaya is among the best we've had. From the BBQ oysters to the special salad and Bloody Mary to the entrees, it was a great meal. Service was attentive but not cloying. And the location is convenient to the Quarter and downtown.
I am from the New Orleans area and have heard wonderful things about this restaurant but I was not impressed with the food. The service was great and it was a fun, cool atmosphere but the food was not up to par with what I would have expected from a restaurant in the Brennan family.
Been here several times. Food is always the strong point as is the service. This was the first time we did not get the signature dish. My wife ordered the shrimp and grits, the popcorn was a different addition but the grits were fantastic. I ordered the catfish and shrimp etouffe, very good! The only knock I have is not on the restaurant but the construction. Bourbon street is under construction and it was noisy, but this noise is a necessary and temporary minor inconvenience.
BBQ crab claws are to die for. This could be a meal by it self. They are my new fav, do yourself a favor skip the BBQ oysters and go for the claws. I had a Blackened drum, it was good but the redfish is my favorite. We had the Bread pudding for dessert. Very rich, more like a chocolate lava cake. It will not disappoint. Good as always!
I had been to the Red Fish Grill previously for dinner and absolutely loved it. This time, four of us went to lunch. My daughter and I split a half dozen of the house specialty, BBQ Oysters. They were absolutely incredible. Both of us wished we had ordered a dozen instead. She and I both had the Red Fish Melt sandwich, which was very tasty. My business partner had the oyster Po-Boy and his wife had the Wagyu hamburger. Everyone at our table enjoyed our lunch sandwiches. Our waitress was outstanding and extremely professional. I would highly recommend The Red Fish Grille for either lunch or dinner.
The service was above average. The waiter seemed out-of-synch. He took the drink order but the drinks were slow coming. He brought a warm loaf of bread in a bag. The bread was not so good. I think it spent to much time in the microwave, very tough and chewy. I ordered the Catfish with shrimp and special sauce. The catfish was battered and fried and very tasty. The shrimp sauce was disappointing as there was only one shrimp.
I had looked forward to returning to the Red Fish Grill since my last visit to New Orleans. I was greatly disappointed by my visit on September 2nd. The food quality at the restaurant had diminished considerably. The soup (with alligator) was tasteless, except for the spicy heat from what I imagine was supposed to pass as the "Cajun" character of the dish. I ordered the shrimp and grits knowing the menu mentioned that it included pork infused popcorn. When I ordered, it never registered to me that it would actually be popcorn, derived from corn. I thought it was an imaginative description of pork added to the dish, something akin to "cracklins." That was my mistake. I could not fathom that anyone would add popcorn to shrimp and grits and after eating it, I can say it was an extraordinarily bad ingredient addition to the dish. Making it worse, the popcorn was cold and I detected no evidence of the popcorn being "pork infused." I had the pecan pie for dessert in the hope it would salvage a disappointing meal. It was passable, at best. The soup appetizer and shrimp and grits were a great disappointment. My server informed me that the chef was attending the LSU game that night; perhaps that contributed to the diminished quality of the food.
