Red Fish Grill
brennan's bestyou can always count on a Brennan restaurant to have excellent food and great service.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mothers Day BrunchExcellent brunch - plenty of delicious choices - everything was out of this world, Great service and an awesome Bloody Mary bar. I got extra brownie points do taking my wife there on Mothers Day.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMupscale chain restaurantI would not call this a culinary delight. We were recommended to go here but I am not sure why. It was not my most disappointing New Orleans dining experience but comes close to that. The food always came out lukewarm - not hot - and the presentation was lacking. Definitely skip the appetizer sampler but the crab claws were quite tasty so order them individually. The bbq'd fried oysters were also quite good but the entrees weren't that exciting. The service was excellent but not enough for me to want to come back.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNew Orleans GemThis is our 2nd time at Red Fish Grill. Two of us had the signature Red Fish which was outstanding. I've had it at other restaurants but have always been disappointed in comparison. One of our friends had the Seared tuna which was also excellent. My husband had the Gulf fish, which was drum and he was not as enthusiastic and would not order it again. Drum is not as mild as red fish. The noise level was a bit higher than I would prefer but, we were, after all, in New Orleans. We skipped appetizers so that we would have room for dessert. We all shared a chocolate bread pudding and it was amazing. Our waiter got my friend's drink wrong twice so she gave up which is why the service did not rate and excellent.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the nicer restaurantsOne of the nicer restaurants on Bourbon Street. Great fish.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food
little waiting at all5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIts terrificEven for New Orleans,with so many choices,the Redfish Grill was outstanding. We had a wonderful server(with a very aprkly diamond ring!) who could not have been nicer. The wine was a well priced Chardonnay. The food was out of this world. Superfresh shrimp,oysters and crab;the bread was not great and it should be but everything else was perfect. Lively but not deafening. We were very pleased with everything5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGumbo!

Highly recommend the seafood sampler- oyster lettuce wraps, BBQ crab claws and shrimp.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMSeafood gem in NOLAAbsolute wonderful meal and terrific service. Went to Red Fish to celebrate my husband's birthday. Our waiter Van was very friendly and knowledgeable about them menu. Bbq oyster appetizer was delicious and unique as was their banana's foster icecream sandwich. Tuna was wonderful and cooked just right and our son raved about the gumbo. I would definitely recommend the Red Fish. Prices are very reasonable and atmosphere is fun.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMHere's what to order!The barbequed oysters, the special redfish, and of course the chocolate bread pudding were the best choices we made.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been coming here forI have been coming here for several years for Jazzfest.

The fish, hickory redfish and Mississippi catfish, were very light, flaky and most importantly tasty.
When they ask you if you want ice cream on your double chocolate bread pudding, the correct answer is " yes".
Great atmosphere, suit and tie not required, but I'm sure you wouldn't feel totally out of place in one.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAll food was wonderful, butAll food was wonderful, but especillay their signature Hickory Red Fish! Noise a bit much!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOnly second time to the redOnly second time to the red fish grill in new orleans but if I lived there it would be many more times!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat fishAlthough the food was excellent, (three of us had the red fish, one had the crab cakes) I thought a simple salad included with the main course could have improved the the meal. There is nothing included with the meal, anything additional has to be ordered separately, so the price was a tiny bit high I thought, but the fish was excellent.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMRed Fish Grill was a greatRed Fish Grill was a great experience all around.

Bar was lively and a good place to mingle and watch sports during our wait. Food was all around very good, but the raw oysters on the half shell were the biggest, meatiest, most delicious oysters we've ever had. Kids raved about the gumbo and the bottomless cokes (mom and dad not so happy about those).4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinner and wonderfulGreat dinner and wonderful service.
