What a lovely experience. Great food and wonderful special touches for our anniversary. I was pleasantly surprised at how reasonable the prices were for what was offered. Don't miss the lobster dumplings or the soft shelled crab if they are offered. Thanks Moose for taking such good care of us.

The service was good. It was just the right amount of attention. The food was served quickly with hardly any waiting. Loved the appetizers. The BBQ shrimp was fantastic. Also had crab potstickers. I thought they were ok. Hubby loved them. Both entrees were very good Salmon and Red Fish. We were slightly disappointed because they had other dishes listed on their menu online that we wanted to try but they didn’t have them. Other than that a very good meal.

One of the finest dining experiences I’ve ever had. In New Orleans or anywhere in the world. Their house specialty scallop it is amazing and I have it every time I die in there.

The staff is amazingly attentive and there is always an owner on the floor making sure that things run smooth Lee.

I can’t say enough about this restaurant or the staff.

A wonderful evening celebrating a birthday. Glitter on the table was just enough effect to make it special. Everything was spot on - tuna tartare, lobster ravioli both perfect. Our entrees of scalibut and grouper were prepared and plated perfectly. Warm biscuits on the table are delicious. Bread pudding and coconut ice cream for dessert. Final word - Oban.

First time dining there. Food was superb! We loved the fish dishes of the day. If you go, give the “Scalabut” (probably misspelled)! Dish is out of this world. Good wine selection.

GW Fins always delivers! Wonderful fresh seafood - best n NOLA. We had pork belly and tuna taco appetizers, then swordfish and sheepshead entrees. Everything was outstanding, only surpassed by our waiter Phelix, who kept us thoroughly entertained throughout our meal.

Our meal was terrific, we arrived early for dinner and were seated immediately. The entire staff was very friendly and helpful without being bothersome. Kenny was our waiter and he knew the menu very well and told us what specialties were best. My wife ordered tuna and I had the swordfish and we both thought that our meals were great! We will definitely visit again and recommend GW Fins to our friends. Thank you for a great night!

Exceptional service! My boyfriend and I ordered a bunch of appetizers and an entree and shared it all so we can taste everything. Our server knew exactly how to space out the dishes brought to our table. We very much appreciated that he did that as opposed to bringing all the appetizers out at the same time, crowding the table and having our food get cold. Everything that we ordered was great but my favorites were definitely the Lobster Dumplings and the Seafood Gumbo! Best I ever had! Can't wait to come back for that!

Celebrated my wife’s birthday here on July 3rd. Service was great and the food was amazing including the swordfish and blue fin tuna. Cooked and seasoned perfectly. This place is a must whenever we are in New Orleans. It has rapidly become my favorite place to eat when we drive over from the gulf coast.

Allen did a wonderful job taking care of us. He was knowledgeable about the menu and very helpful in helping us make choices. He was also extremely personable and made us feel at home from the start. The food was outstanding. My wife’s fish (wahoo) and my steak were delicious and the biscuits served right out of the oven were a real treat. I wish there were more stars to give this place.

We went there for our 25th anniversary. Service and food were outstanding. My husband got the scalibut, which is scallops and halibut combined. It was amazing. I had the filet and didn't hardly need my knife. Prices were fair for the quality you receive.
