Service was beyond great
Excellent dinner. Probably the best seafood we have ever had. The biscuits were also delicious.
Fantastic as always! Never felt rushed and enjoyed a leisurely dinner with an old friend visiting from NYC. Fins never disappoints! And thanks for the great table!
The food and service was SUPERB! My Husband and I traveled to New Orleans for our 25th Anniversary. I am very pleased that we chose GW Finn to Celebrate. The staff treated us like Royalty! Everything we ordered was prepared to perfection.....and the biscuits were to die for! This is a MUST for us to dine at every time we visit New Orleans!
Delicious food. Swordfish and Scalibut were excellent. A great wireless.
Very helpful serving staff.
Exceptional food, and service. Our birthday celebration was really special.
G W Fins went to the top of my "don't miss" list.
Outstanding food and service!
A few steps from Bourbon Street but a world away. Nothing but class and great food. Recommend very highly.
GW Fins deserves the high ratings it receives. The service was excellent. Our server, Marlon, was very attentive even though he had several tables to manage. The food was excellent as always. If you like seafood, this is the place to eat at. We celebrated my friend's birthday and he received a complementary personal dessert. Very classy.
Went for Mother’s Day and received a rose upon arriving which was a special welcome. The service was impeccable, friendly, and helpful. The food was great- loved the scalibut and lobster appetizer. Will definitely come back.
I love this restaurant. It's modern, but comfortable. The dishes are creative and balanced, and the service is excellent. I cannot recommend the lobster dumplings enough, and I hope that by specifically naming them in this review, the restaurant will never be able to remove them from the menu. Sorry, guys, they are just too good! The wine list is also excellent, with moderately priced options and unique varietals. Dessert also is well done. GW Fins is top of my list for delicious seafood in a seafood town.
Top 5 of all time...and my wife and kids with me have had cuisine all over the world.
GW Fins is an exceptional and outstanding New Orleans restaurant. You can never go wrong with any of the entrees. Highly recommend it.
Birthday celebration with unbelievable food parings! Lobster Dumplings and Mango Ceviche were off the charts!
So happy to have discovered this wonderful restaurant!
Our favorite restaurant in Downtown New Orleans. Love that they do special day (Mothers Day-Christmas-etc) lunch service. Food and service are always too notch.
This is an amazing restaurant ! The food is outstanding and the service is the best in NOLA!
Food, service, ambiance, friendly, so delicious!!
Excellent as always! The food and service is impeccable.
Making reservations was quick and easy through OpenTable, the food was delicious and creative, and service was outstanding!
Most amazing Mother's Day lunch! Server Alexis was superb as were all of the staff and food was to die for!!
Great experience I would definitely recommend this to friends and family
Excellent! Everything about this place is wonderful.
The sheepshead was amazing as well as the scalibut! Would definitely make a return trip if I was in New Orleans.
The Blackened and Aged Swordfish was amazing!! Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the restaurant for the first time!!
Oh my goodness, where do I begin? This place was beyond exceptional! The food is to die for! The service was the best we have received during our stay in New Orleans. If we ever come back we will definitely be making a stop here again. If I could give a higher rating than 5 stars I would, this place deserves a 10 star rating.
Amazing as always. My favorite restaurant hands down I have ever been to.
This was our first time bringing our 6 year old here. Amazing experience. While our waiter was good the gentleman cleaning the table/bringing biscuits was outstanding. He had great attention to details.
Our go-to dinner spot when visiting NOLA. Food is wonderful, food allergies accommodated, modern and exiting vibe.
This was outstanding! Everything from the service to the food was exceptional. We loved the little biscuits. Our appetizers of tuna tartare and ponchatoula strawberry salad were both delicious. The tuna tartare had an amazing flavor and the strawberries in the salad were some of the best I have ever eaten. One of us had the Scalibut - it was so delicious I wish I could eat it every day. The presentation was beautiful and the pea sauce was like a happy dance :). The other person had parmesan crusted sheepshead with Meyer lemon buerre blanc. Again, the flavor and presentation were both fantastic. The fish was cooked perfectly and the sauce was the perfect compliment. We enjoyed a nice bottle of wine - the wine list isn't extensive but more than adequate. Sadly we didn't have room for dessert. Overall, this was a chart topper for us! Definitely as must if you visit New Orleans.
I highly recommend this restaurant. We were celebrating our anniversary so there were special little touches along the way!
The service was absolutely perfect and our food was to die for. I had the absolute best blackened swordfish I've ever had.
Treat yourself to a night out at GW Fins. You will not regret it!!
Exceptional Service & Menu Offerings.
It was our 10 year anniversary. I loved how all the waiters told us happy anniversary. We felt pretty special! The food was amazingly delicious! We will be back, for sure! Restaurant was a great atmosphere and very clean.
Outstanding experience.lobster dumplings-amazing as well as the crispy pork belly. Parmesan crusted fish with crab meat - incredible.
Kenny was great. Everyone had a different fish fir dinner and they were all amazing. Pork belly and lobster dumplings to start, awesome!
The food was wonderful. The service was impeccible. And the management was solicitous and stepped up to make the entire room's experience better by telling an oblivious family that their screaming 2-year old shouldn't be allowed to continue to ruin the ambiance and experience of the other 100 people in there.
An absolutely spectacular experience from beginning to end. Brenda navigates us through the menu with gracious expertise.
Every appetizer, entree & dessert was beautifully presented and delicious.
We look forward to our next dining experience at GW Fins
