Red Fish Grill Ratings and Reviews
Fantastic food and fun atmosphere. Right on Bourbon St so not quiet and romantic but active and fun. I had the Redfish and Prawn special, my wife had Redfish with a different sauce and they both were amazing. We ordered the chocolate bread pudding in advance so it would be ready and it was delicious and decadent.
We had a great dinner at Red Fish Grill. Our server Dece suggested we start with the BBQ oysters - and I was so glad she did! They were fabulous! I would call it more of a Buffalo sauce than BBQ. It was spicy, but not too bad. I had the Creole Jambalaya Risotto - it was really good, great flavor, but spicy. For dessert, I suggest the Double Chocolate Bread Pudding - OH BOY!!
Red Fish grill was lively and a fun atmosphere. We had a 6:00pm reservation and still had to wait 20 to 30 minutes. Unfortunately our server forgot about us didn't bring us our appetizer (Buffalo oysters) until after our dinner arrived. Our dinner arrived it was lukewarm at best (shrimp risotto, blackened fish with sweet potato purée. Our drink was good it was called the perfect storm.
Very enjoyable experience dining with relatives who were visiting NO for the first
time. Jack, the waiter, was very courteous and professional in doing his job.
Menu provided a variety choices that my relatives wanted in experiencing
NO. Outstanding gumbo! Would highly recommend!
The BBQ Crab claws were amazing! The sauce!! Omg!
Ike our server was a delight! Fun server and very knowledgeable about every dish! We also had the Louisiana Court Boullion which was a tomato base with oysters, fish and shrimp served with jalapeño corn bread! Delish!
I come to NOLA 7-8 times a year for work and this was my first time eating at this restaurant. I must say it was great. IKE made the dining experience so much better. I have never felt more at home, more cared for, and entertained during any dining experience. I will definitely become a regular. Thank you for a great evening.
Went to the Red Fish Grill for dinner, based on a client's recommendation. The menu is quite diverse, and they will prepare meals off of the menu. The accommodated my wife's special requests, and the food was very good. The place fills up fast, and can get quite noisy, but then we were sitting between two large tables of business diners. Overall, I highly recommend this place, and I will return.
The noise level was loud due to it being Super Ball Sunday and the bar was close to our table. The food was wonderful and our waitress was great, kept coming by and filling glasses and topping off coffee. We would recommend this restaurant and have already told some friends at the conference about it. Two thumbs up.
RFG is always a good choice for the local seafood lover. restaurant is busy and a bit noisy but getting a reservation is a better chance than many of the smaller restaurants in the area. Live oyster bar is a great addition if that's what you fancy. One downside is the lack of validated parking
We were in NOLA for a wedding and it was our first night there and we were hungry. We have been to NOLA several times and always try new places. Heard and read good things, was able to make a reservation which was great. We went down from the hotel a little early and we were seated right away. This was a plus. We were waited on right away, but the waiter basically told us he really didn't know the details of the specials, but did suggest some menu items. Food was OVER fancy and kinda pricey. Waiter not attentive, no drink refills, and took a while to get the check. I honestly wouldn't go back. App was delicious, very tiny crab legs with gravy. Bread was hard. Grits were very soupy.
I went alone and got a couple of appetizers and asked the server if the dessert was too sweet. She said it's really good and she gave it to me on the house. I'd say everything I ordered were very delicious: alligator boudin balls, fried oysters and the double chocolate bread pudding! The service was awesome and my server made sure I was enjoying my food.
we had a 8:00 pm reservation that they confirmed at 7:45 am PST that morning. We confirmed it. We flew across country from Seattle to New Orleans and travel weary. we arrived 15 minutes before our reservation time 8:00 pm, and yet we were not seated until 8:45 pm. When asked for an explanation, were met with a attitude by the hostess. If we had not been tired and hungry we would have gone elsewhere. I ask why bother to make a reservation a week in advance then confirm it to wait for an hour?
The food was very good and the wait staff was quite nice. A bit over priced but that's to be expected in the French Quarter of New Orleans.
If you want noise and don't mind waiting in the bar for an hour I say go. Otherwise go somewhere that reservations mean something!
Hands down the best oysters I've ever tasted. The BBQ oysters were out of this world! Name throughs you off, but their definition on BBQ was really fried oysters tossed with buffalo sauce and topped with blue cheese crumbles! I died and went to oyster heaven! Yes, they were phenomenal! Outstanding food & service. I changed the reservation time about 3 times and they were super accommodating, as we went for lunch and the restaurant wasn't as busy as it would be later during the day. The manager/owner came to our table about 3 times to make sure food was to our liking and she was super nice. Wait Staff, Frank, was incredibly friendly and his recommendations were on point! Best Mint Julep in all New Orleans French Quarter area. Definitely you MUST eat here for an ultimate gastronomical experience. Thank you RED FISH GRILL for an amazing lunch experience & for the complimentary dessert.
Grade A dining experience starting with greeting from Brittany the hostess. Our server, Jasmine was outstanding. She was knowledgeable on all of the dishes because her recommendations were spotted on. My dining companion and I had shared the BBQ oysters, seafood gumbo with alligator sausage, crab cakes, and grilled drum. The food was amazing. The crab was nothing but fresh crab meat delicious and the drum was grilled to perfection. The Rosemary Worshishire sauce complimented the drum. If possible i would give Redfish Grill ten stars.
Great menu options and really good food. We wanted to go to Bourbon Street but for our first time we didn't want to go too far into the French Quarter. This location was perfect and, for what first appeared to be somewhat of a "formula" restaurant, we liked it a lot. The service was outstanding as well. I would certainly go back.
