Lots of delicious seafood options in a gorgeous setting. Enjoyed the salmon carpaccio, cobia crudo, salads, seared tuna. Very good food, but lacks originality, and service is great but a bit overbearing (think cruise ship). Overall enjoyable!

Excellent meal, server very helpful and attentive, setting lovely. Food reasonably priced for the quality, cocktails less so. One minor point, hostess didn't offer a greeting, or so much as eye contact when we arrived. As I said, not a huge deal, but at this price point it matters.

The signature dish, Scalibut, was almost perfect except for the overcooked risotto, which was too soft and far from al dente. The Fish of the Day, Grilled Cobia, was also overcooked; it was a bit dry and bland.

We went for our Anniversary and our table was decorated with pretty confetti and a keepsake menu with our names on it and "Happy Anniversary". We had two fish entrees and the Samoa dessert. We loved it all! We will definitely be going back when we go to NOLA!

GW Fins is a great restaurant in a city known for great restaurants. The service was outstanding! The food was excellent. We had an after dinner drink in the bar, where the bartender was great! Overall, excellent experience.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary with dinner at GW Fins. The salads, entrees and dessert were delicious. Everyone we encountered from hostess, bartender, our server, even the manager who stopped by our table were almost robotic in their politeness and professionalism. We enjoyed our evening, but we walked away saying that not one of the staff seemed to be happy. It was such a strange contrast to all of the other places we visited while in New Orleans.

The waitstaff was good and as it was Mother's Day - all the women received red roses - nice touch. I do have to say my only disappointment was the the chargrilled oysters were the worst we had our entire trip. However, the local drum fish wrapped in chicken skins was delicious! I would eat that again and again. The biscuits - made with lard - were devine. Good wine list.

Moose was an excellent server and GW Fina made it very special for mother’s day! Food was unbelievable, we had the triple wedge salad and the Scalibut. We also ordered a bottle of wine, Conundrum 2015, and that was off the charts as well! Wonderful experience, beautiful decor, and tasty everything!

The menu changes daily. If you're celebrating a bday, they give you a menu that wishes you a happy birthday. What a nice touch!

Everything was perfect about this restaurant.

Thank you for helping to make my day special.

I was in New Orleans for a business conference that extended into a long personal weekend stay. I am very familiar with New Orleans and find this to be one of the very best restaurants it has to offer. I will always make this a must visit spot for future visits to New Orleans. I would rather eat here than most any of the other New Orleans restaurants considered to be the best.
