Best fish I've had in my lifetime and I'm 58. The Sea Bass is to die for. I am mostly a steak guy and not so much on fish, but this was unbelievable. I now understand why it is difficult to get a reservation. Best ever. If you're visiting New Orleans, this is a must.

Our meal at GW Fins was fantastic. Every bite we had was delicious. We dined for our 20th anniversary and they went above and beyond making our evening special. We also purchased Chef Tenny’s cookbook while there and we can’t wait to recreate some of his dishes at home.

Reservations are a must! Done at GW Fins - you will not be disappointed!

We arrived 15 mins later than our reservation time but we called ahead to let them know. They were very understanding of our parking situation. The overall service was terrific. Jason was great. He recommended a great choice of wine and we enjoyed it.

Gary Wollerman of GW Fins always takes care of the guest! He came to our table at least twice. Food was delicious and service was great as always. Most consistent and best FQ restaurant.

Wow. This place is amazing. The food off the chart good. Our server Kenny was delightful without rushing us. The restaurant itself is beautiful with old school charm. Being a local we like to take advantage of the month of August since these great restaurants have s special “Coolinary”menu for a great price. Highly recommend this restaurant

We were there on a Wednesday night in August, the place was packed, it’s very popular because it’s GOOD.
We’re local, drove there, they have a deal with a nearby garage, for parking.
My hearing is not good in a noisy restaurant, but we were seated in a small room off the main room, and conversation was easy. We’ll ask for that next trip. Nice, clean, good service, great seafood, we will be going back

Best restaurant we dined in while in New Orleans. We requested window seating in advance and they made it happen. The scalibut is the best fish dish I have ever had. Will be back for sure! Don’t miss out on dining here while in Nola!

This is truly my favorite spot in New Orleans. The food is wonderful. Your staff is first class. Your chef, Michael Nelson sent me the recipe for the Shrimp Remoulade several years ago. I have prepared this dish many times for guests. It is always my favorite. Can't wait to return.

GW fin is a fantastic restaurant experience. Make sure to wear a shirt with collar. Even though we weren't they were still able to seat us in the bar area which was perfect.

Great service. I am sorry I can remember our server’s name because he was excellent. All of the staff was. We noticed how well they all worked around each other to get things done. The food was great. Biscuits were heavenly. It is loud, but honestly that has never really been an issue for me. Most people seemed to be talking rather than looking at their phones and that’s a plus these days. I would recommend it.

Celebrated our 56 wedding anniversary... we were escorted to a private room with six tables .. so noise was considerably reduced from the main room. Waiters were exceptional as was the food! I would include this on my list of my top ten restaurants in the U.S.
