Beautiful setting, attentive staff, great wine selection, amazing food
Wait staff was on the money, food was excellent, mouth watering & and cooked to perfection. We will be sure to come back.
I really think this is the best place in town. Every time I go it seems better than the time before but it was perfect the first time I ever went. If you have not been the go. If you have been the GO AGAIN!!!! Hats off to our server Kevin too!!! Hats off to the rest of the staff as well. A++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
My wife and I seated at Bar late 12/6/18 after arriving to a Hotel from the airport with no dinner reservations. The food was excellent - same menu except no pre fixe which was fine since we wanted to sample things. Our server Alexis was great, she explained the menu and we followed her suggestions, we enjoyed the classic cocktails "Bienville" is what I had - the pork belly appetizer, Brussell sprouts side most memorable as was the Dory fish Entree. Our daughter and son-in-law joined us before closing and they loved the craft cocktails and food as well - we enjoyed it so much that on our last night we returned for dinner in the dinging section and were lucky to get Alexis for another spectacular meal. We tried other recommended restaurants in the area and were disappointed by comparison. Even the coffee was better at GW Finns. The apple pie was excellent made to order and hot with ice cream.
The food was excellent!! Very good service. Wait staff was very friendly
Have eaten at my NOLA restaurants but this one is the best. Wow.
Everything was wonderful. The services was great.
Excellent food. It wasn’t inexpensive, but worth the price.
We looked forward to celebrating my husband ‘s birthday at Fin’s. We had reservations and had to wait less than 15 minutes. The hostess was distracted and not attentive. The server recommended the lobster dumplings as an appetizer. The dumplings had a strong fishy odor. We ordered a bottle of wine that we enjoyed. The entrees took a long time to come. A nice gentleman walked around serving hot biscuits which were good and we were thankful since the entrees were delayed. Our server was rude. My husband noticed she was friendly to a table of men but acted as though we were a bother. When she brought the check we told her we wanted to see a desert menu. She brought it by and dropped it on our table without stopping or saying a word. The bread pudding was good and the coffee was exceptional. We noticed two other couples come and go that had a different waiter that explained menu options and was courteous. At first we thought our server was new or having a difficult day until my husband noticed her demeanor was completely different with the table of men. We’ve visited several other restaurants this week in New Orleans and had great food and service. I wish this had been the case at Fin’s.
Lovely early evening dinner. Tastefully decorated for the holidays.
LOVED!! My experience at GW Fins with my husband. This restaurant has been on my bucket list forever and we finally got to go! Kevin was our server who really made the experience even more wonderful. His recommendations were spot on! It's a little pricey but SO worth the value!.
outstanding food and service. Tori our waitress was phenomenal . My wife says one of top three meals she ever had eating out.
Awesome food. Great service.
Always great! We split a bowl of the gumbo and they split it into two smaller bowls for us. We also split the Shrimp Remoulade, which they also split into individual portions. My wife had the scallops and I had the monkfish, both dishes were excellent and came with two different risotto's. We topped it off with a pour for each of us of some Van Winkle bourbon. They had several to choose from!
The service was great. And the food was wonderful. I highly recommend you put this restaurant on your must do list
GW Fins never disappoints. Everything I put in my mouth is amazing. The signature biscuits keep showing up too. I love how the menu incorporates New Orleans cuisine. The service is always impeccable and the atmosphere electric. I have tried many different things but my favs are the Royal Red Shrimp dishes, lobster dumplings, and chocolate molten dessert. They also make special occasions awesome!! We will keep coming back and keep recommending it to our friends.
Enjoyable dining experience
Oliver took excellent care of us and helped guide our meal selections from the menu. Everything we had was delicious and the service was so quick and attentive!! We started with the famous lobster dumplings which were luscious and flavorful. The biscuits were incredible and put all other biscuits to shame. I had the Scottish salmon and my husband had the Pompano and we both cleaned our plates! This dining experience hit all the marks; it’s obvious why GW Fins is so highly rated and popular. Highly recommend!
Arrived on time and got seated right away. Our table, no fault of the restaurant, was right in the middle of the dining room and the noise level was pretty strong.
Server was energetic but sometimes was not to be found.
Food was excellent, pork belly appetizer, tuna tartare great and entrees like black grouper and yellowfin tuna were also outstanding.
Brought our own wine and paid a fair corkage.
Food 5 star, all in a 4 star evening.
This was our first time visiting GW Fins and we were not disappointed. We visit New Orleans once a year and we all agreed GW Fins is on the must visit every visit list. We said this is our new favorite in New Orleans. The service is outstanding, along with the food, and the ambiance is lovely. Great place!
Delicious. The wine list was extensive and the food was exisquite! Made my husband's birthday wonderful.
Great anniversary dinner!
We had a lovely birthday dinner here on our NOLA getaway. Service was perfect and the food was outstanding. Would not hesitate to recommend GW Finns for a special occasion.
Enjoyed not only great food, but attentive and very friendly service. Like their use of locally sourced foods as much as possible. And that the menu is printed daily once the local catch has been secured.
Great food, service, everything
Not only did waiter get my order wrong but his breath was horrible. I believe this is the first time I can say that. Maybe GW Fins should have classes on hygiene
Had a great meal to celebrate a birthday. Food was excellent. Enjoyed the Scalibut and also the Barbecue Shrimp was amazing!
The food was ridiculously awesome! Our waiter Felix was incredible. Enthusiastic energetic a complete joy! Highly recommend.
Always a great meal here!
Went for dinner. Great food from start to finish. Would definitely eat here again.
Outstanding service and great food in a dynamic atmosphere. Will definitely go to GWFins next time we’re in town.
Enjoyed the seafood but the service was truly outstanding! Waitstaff was attentive and their recommendations were spot on!
So yummy!! We really appreciated the customized menu made for my boyfriend’s birthday and the little chocolate treat at the end of the meal. It’s little touches like this that makes you appreciate the details!
Food was AMAZING and service was very attentive, friendly and professional. Thank you :)
One of the best restaurant meals I have ever had. The lobster ravioli was absolutely delicious and this caliber was probably the best dish I have ever eaten at a restaurant
Food and service were outstanding. Something for everyone on the menu.
exceptionally delicious seafood. everything is absolutely fabulous, varied options, local fish highlighted. Staff is knowledgeable and attentive. excellent wine list. A very large and full place, but booths make it intimate for small parties.
Loved the fresh fish selection that is flown in daily! Everything perfect! Meal, service, wine. Best ever!
Excellent food. All of the elements on the plate worked well together and took the taste and flavor to a much higher level.
We were celebrating our anniversary and the staff took the extra effort to make the occasion memorable.
Our waitress Ashley was incredible. The atmosphere was very good. Chef Mike was great with information concerning GF issues. The staff at the door were great with the seating. The only thing that could use help is the noise level. I feel like energetic is good but I found it to be too loud. Other than that it was a great experience.
