Best filet I have ever eaten and my friend is vegetarian and the chef prepared her an excellent dish of vegetables.
Had a great experience at GW for our anniversary- it’s always consistent and the quality and presentation of thier food makes them a 5 star in my book.
One of the top 10 meals we have ever eaten!
The best meal we had on our trip! Kayla was fantastic and the food was absolutely wonderful. The biscuits are TOP NOTCH, simple perfection.
What a wonderful night at GW Fins! The lobster dumplings were exceptional Ali g either he tuna tartare. And the biscuits I wish I had room to eat 3 more. The entrees were all delicious and interesting as well. If you go you must get the salty malty ice cream pie it is truly life changing!!!
Amazing experience!! Everything was spot on, this was perfect evening for our out of state business partners.
Wonderful! The food was sensational. Specifically, excellent gumbo and Red Snapper. Oh my, the biscuits were homemade, yummy good and hot from the oven. First class service as well. Pro waiters. I immediately made a second reservation for 2 days later.
Delicious food, a wide variety of drink options, and some of the best service I've ever had. Made it a wonderful belated birthday dinner!
A memorable dinner to celebrate our 17th anniversary. We loved everything about our dinner. Felix was a wonderful server. His recommendations were on point. Wine, appetizers entrees and dessert all so good! Best meal we had while we visited the city for a weekend trip!

The service was excellent, and the food was amazing. Really a must do if you’re in NOLA
Stephanie was great and thank you for assisting with the reservation request - it that was perfect! Food was incredible as usual but even more outstanding this visit if that’s possible. We appreciate all of the staff and management for making this the best place for fresh fish deliciously prepared in all of New Orleans! Hands down the best place for a birthday celebration or any other special event where the food, service, and ambience must all be top notch!
Thanks again for another memorable meal!
Delicious and excellent dining experience.
Reading all the reviews we were hyped up about dining here. The food was good, not incredible. We enjoyed other restaurants more in New Orleans.
The staff was attentive to all of our concerns. The food was prepared and presented in a superb fashion. From the appetizer to dessert we enjoyed the the food and never rushed.
Very good food and ambiance. The wine list was incredible.
The food was on point and the service was great. There was nothing we tried that wasn’t exceptional. The manager was on the floor working side by side with his team which was refreshing. The creme brûlée was one of the best I’ve ever had. Overall a wonderful dinner.
The food was outstanding! Wonderful, prompt service too.
All waiters, waitresses, and servers were unbelievably nice, personable, and open to conversation. The food was beautiful and delicious. One of my favorite dining experiences.

Great experience - service, menu and ambiance! Would definitely go back!
Fantastic food. Lovely atmosphere. Kenny, our server, was absolutely fantastic. He took the evening over the top!
Having enjoyed 5 star restaurants in many cities across the globe, GW Fins is a solid 5 star restaurant. For example when my wife and I walked in with black pants on, and they swapped white napkins to black napkins. The food was expertly prepared and not loaded with salt and fat to add flavor.
Food was excellent and service was exquisite. The dry-aged, blackened swordfish was unique and truly superb.
I was there for my anniversary and could not have had a better experience. The food and service were incredible. I highly recommend GW Fins to anyone looking for a fine dining experience in the French Quarter.
We had before dinner cocktails, very good! The lobster dumplings are outstanding.
Both entrees we chose were excellent. This is a great New Orleans restaurant n
Excellent food and service. Highly recommended but you will need reservations
We had are 20th wedding anniversary there and GW Fins made it very special. We even got a semi private dining room! Planning to go every year. Food was fabulous!!
We have been to GW Fins several times since 2005 for special occasions. This time I had the soft shell crab which was on top of corn muffin and maque choux, it was exceptional, the crab was cooked just right and the maque choux and corn muffing accentuated it. We also had the fin wings and of course the lobster dumplings which were also amazing. I have consistently enjoyed everything I have had. I also had the pork belly with watermelon which is so delicious. I never thought I would like this combination but this is another tasty appetizer. We had 4 apppetizers and 3 entrees and i cannot say enough about the food it is par excellence. The service is also first class. I love GWFins and I will continue to recommend it to others.
Exquisite meal and impeccable service! My first dine-in meal since the beginning of COVID! Happy to have had my “resurrection” experience with out of state friends at GW Fins. Special thanks to the chefs, our waiter Marlon, Mgr. Nicole, and the other male manager whose name I did not get. I WILL be back! Thank you all so much!
