Whether you start with the mouth watering lobster ravioli, melt in your mouth pork belly bites, or fresh and delicious beet salad, you will love your entire meal. The biscuits are like no other and you’ll return for those as well. The service is friendly, professional, and efficient; atmosphere is very pleasant; and you’ll know you’re at a very unique and special restaurant that serves only the freshest and finest cuisine. We still love dining here after more than 30 times.
Neat dining experience in New Orleans! Wonderful service and the food was amazing. Highly recommend
We loved our dinner date at GW Fins. The service was fantastic. The food was great. We would definitely go back and recommend them to others.
Amazing food and service! Do NOT hesitate to visit!
Wonderful time! Had the Chicken cracklins Drum, fried fish wings, 30 year aged salmon (3 ways) and Samoa for dessert. EVERY single thing was delicious!! Service was incredible
Great service! Amazing food!!
Hadnt been in severall years because its hard to get a reservation. It was outstanding. I had the blackened swordfish and my wife had the scalibut dish. Both were perfectly cooked. The snapper fins appetizer was also phenominal, and the creme brulee was authentic. Very quiet with widespread CV-19 seating. Service very good too (Paul was our server).
This was our third time enjoying GW Fins. I'm sure we will go every time we're in New Orleans.
Perfect Service Great Food
One of our top 3-4 favorites restaurant in the French Quarters. We love their appetizers.
Everything tasted delicious. The crew was very attentive to our needs
gin gimlets to start. lobster dumplings appetizer, like butter, so good. both fish entrees were fresh and tasty. nice wine list. solid service. can't go wrong here.
great staff, delicious food, went for a birthday dinner and would gladly go back
Everything about this restaurant was exceptional. We will definitely return every time we are in New Orleans.
Fantastic meal and atmosphere! I would definitely go again the next time I’m in town.
The absolute best!
Overrated. Service was amazing but the food was unimpressive and under seasoned. Your money is better spend elsewhere in New Orleans.
We come to NOLA every year and always squeeze in GW Fins. Till next time!
In my opinion this is one of the best restaurants in New Orleans. Everything was amazing.
Outstanding food and service.
Fabulous! Best seafood in the world!
GW Finns will ruin all other restaurants in New Orleans for you. The seafood was excellent, salted perfectly, cooked just right, and presented elegantly. The service was exemplary and every detail considered. It would be very difficult to surpass the quality of the seafood here.
Amazing and perfectly prepared Grouper. Every course was excellent. Highly recommend and I look forward to a repeat visit on my next NOLA trip.
Excellent! This was by far the best food we ate in NOLA. Must try the lobster dumplings and pork belly appetizers. All of our entrees were delicious from fish to the pork and collards but save room for the salty malty dessert! Our waitress was exceptional!
Tuna tacos and dry aged yellowfin tuna was awesome. The scaibut was also amazing.
Trip to NOLA the past 2 years for my sister’s birthday and this again was a hit. Servers are always on point and the food was simply amazing! Love GWs and if they would have had an opening the next night we would have come back.
Always love eating here. We had the fin wings and scallops. So delicious. Service is friendly and efficient.
Outstanding seafood that difficult to match.
The service and food are always impeccable!
Lovely atmosphere, tables spaced out appropriately, attentive staff, delicious food!
Perfecr place for birthday dinner. Best pork belly I’ve ever had!
Love this restaurant. I had the Sea Bass and it was excellent!
Great restaurant. This was our first time and we will be back. Great selection of fish
Absolutely one of the finest dining experiences. Service and food were outstanding.
The food was tastefully delicious, Lobster Ravioli was very good, with the butter sauce and the scallops. Exceptional quality.
The food was unbelievable and the service was great. It was our anniversary and made sure to make us feel special.
The food was awesome the waiter was on point, it was a perfect birthday dinner.
Not going back until sizzling oysters are back on the menu
Second time back to Fins and I always love it. I will be back again.
