Always a fantastic experience. Food, service, and ambience are consistently top notch!
Beautiful menu, cozy ambience, extensive wine list with a helpful and knowledgeable wait staff. Staff recommendations were spot on, food was delicious, service excellent and we will return again.
Fantastic food, very attentive service, excellent pricing for high quality food
We noticed that GW Fins is quieter than other restaurants. We liked this !!!
We enjoyed our table near the window with a great street view.
The food was awesome !
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.
Best restaurant ever! Go! Go now! Everything was perfect!
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.
The food was so good I think the best in New Orleans. The service was top drawer and very personal as well as friendly and help full. We are coming back soon.
An elegant, attentive, first-class restaurant. Exceptional food. A quiet respite from Bourbon Street.
Phenomenal food and great service!!! We enjoyed every aspect of the experience.
Disappointing food. For all the hype I thought the food would be excellent, but it was below average and expensive for what it was
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.
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. It was my husbands 60th birthday and was a great meal.
Thank you for a memorable evening.

Excellent atmosphere, food and service
Our visit to GW Fins was amazing as usual. Simply put.....this is the best restaurant that i have ever been to! Service is top notch and super accommodating on all levels (we included our 1 yr old for the dinner). Can't wait to go back!!
Exceptional service & absolutely amazing food, served in a beautiful venue. Definitely one of the best dining experiences we’ve ever encountered.
We’ll be back often.
Can't think of any better place to go for superlative seafood dishes and gracious classy New Orleans dining. The special attention given to my my wife for her birthday was outstanding. We are repeat customers and look forward to a GW Fins dining experience every time we visit New Orleans!
Incredible food and service was impeccable! Can not wait to go back!
Fantastic food and great service. Would definitely recommend. Try the Salty Malty Ice Cream Pie!
Ambiance like a Hillstone Restaurant plus best seafood ever....hands down!
Great seafood and service !
Would definitely recommend for dinner! Our meal was delicious and service is great!
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!
After living in New Orleans for 5 years and returning back the past 6 years since moving away, GW Fins remains a favorite of ours. Always amazing seafood and stellar service.
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.
Everyone gave great attention to detail! Waiter was excellent! Manager very attentive and food was perfect! We will be back!
My wife and I had a great time. Our waiter “Moose” was fantastic. Lobster dumplings, blackened swordfish and scalhabit were perfect. We will be back!
Fantastic service and food! Wonderful celebration evening!! Would highly recommend and will definitely go back again!!
Taylor was awesome! Everyone was friendly! Food "Awesome"..
It's pricey so be ready!😁
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.
It was amazing as usual, however they were out of my favorite fish but they had an excellent replacement!
This was an amazing experience in New Orleans. The food was perfect, the reservation system worked perfectly and the serviceby Brandon was outstanding.
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.
Probably the best restaurant we've been to over the six times we've visited NOLA. Everything was excellent.
