If you’re craving perfectly prepared moist fresh fish, this is the place! We shared the tuna tartare appetizer and wedge salad, both excellent. My date had the blackened swordfish and I the local drum. Both were cooked to perfection and SO moist! Highly recommended!

Service was great, but the food wasn’t really good. Felt like I was eating food from red lobster. You could tell it was pre made or frozen and just heated up in a hot oven and served. Main course was only thing fresh and fish was bland and fishy. It’s a tourist spot mixed with an older crowd. Place has ran its course.

The food at GW's never disappoints! Everything is always tasty and fresh. The Lobster Dumplings are always a wonderful way to start a meal. The service is excellent and the waiters are always very helpful in making suggestions. A booth for two is a cozy way to enjoy a great meal together.

This is a must visit restaurant when in New Orleans. The food is amazing. The menu differs based on whats available or in season and it is always delicious and creative. They capture the flavor of the city in each bite. Their staff make you feel as if you are the only one in the restaurant. Expect the complete New Orleans experience!

Our best dining experience in New Orleans this visit by far. Not quite perfect, but very close. They are on the top of their game right now and should be on your list. Only downside is that it's pretty noisy in the big room but fortunately we were seated in a smaller room.

GW Finns is always my favorite when we have new visitors in town. Menu features fresh seafood and we have never been disappointed with a meal. We had the sheepshead, sea bass, drum, and halibut all prepared differently. Every dish was excellent. Service is on time and efficient.

Beautiful dining room and a fun place for a special event. Ceviche was outstanding- though too spicy for some in our group. Bigeye tuna very good, needs a bit more spice to bring out its flavor. Steak was tremendous.

I celebrated my 44th and 48th Birthday there, and on both occasions I was very impressed with staff, service and food. I'm lactose intolerant and the choices and recommendations were amazing!
I can't wait to celebrate another special occasion with them!

Quite possibly the best meal I've ever had. We went on my birthday and it was our first night in NOLA. And GW Fins ruined us for all other restaurants. They went out of their way to notice my birthday without being embarrassing for me. The lobster dumplings were amazing and the BBQ shrimp were perfect. The biscuits were excellent - I only wish, they had brought us more. My two friends had the scallibut and I had the scallops. We were all thrilled with our entrees. The Manhattan drink was perfect (I'm a fan of manhattans, and this was a good one). And dessert .... omg. They brought a beautiful truffle for my birthday, but my friends and I also got the chocolate bombe, which was ... I have no words.

The service was attentive and friendly, but not obtrusive. Truly, I can't say enough wonderful things about it.

If you want great seafood and excellent services, this is the place to come! Everything from check in to closing out, the staff at GW Fins are the best. We find sometime if the food is mediocre the service makes up for it. This was not the case here. The food was delicious and our server Nick aka Nick at Night made the overall dining experience wonderful and we can’t wait to get back!!!

Great restaurant to celebrate all specials occasions. The upper level booth seating gives you the feeling that your separated from the crowd in a good way. It would be great if they were onpen two days a week for lunch offering a lunch menu.
