Excellent food, service and experience (as always)! Made our anniversary special. Gary Wollerman runs a top notch restaurant with ample social distancing during these difficult times! Kudos to him and his team!
Food was exquisite as usual. Quality always the same and the chefs dishes are delicious. Save all your WW points!!!
As usual, outstanding food and warm, friendly service in a spacious Covid setting.

Best meal and service I have ever had! Perfect place
Wonderful food and service. The soft shell crab was divine and the tuna tartare excellent. The Shalibut dish was exceptional
First time in New Orleans and GW Fins was highly recommended. Great service and the desserts exquisite!
As ever, the food was fantastic and the staff did a wonderful job under difficult circumstances. We felt very comfortable with the spacing of the tables and the staff wearing masks properly. I particularly appreciated that our server paid me (the female in the party) as much attention as my male date. Even in 2020, that rarely happens. Kudos to GW's!
Food was outstanding.. As well as the cocktails.. I’ll come back next time I’m in town..
Anniversary dinner - they made it extra special! Food and service were wonderful. We had a perfect evening!
Very nice experience all around. Food was fantastic and service was spot on.
Fabulous service and food!
Dining at GW Fins is always a treat!!
38th Anniversary dinner. Tables were very spaced out so we felt comfortable. Ashley was our server. She explained the menu very well and answered all our questions. The food was excellent.
Great fish place. No frozen stuff...all fresh.
From the moment we stepped in, we were treated special.
The wait staff knows the menu well and gives good recommendations.
Every dis was beautiful and delicious
First time at GW Fins was a great experience all around. Drinks, biscuits, lobster dumplings and fish selections were amazing! Brenda and the whole staff were fantastic, especially during these odd COVID times (social distance, masks, and clean). We look forward to coming back and trying other menu items.
Had a fantastic experience at GW Fins! The service was outstanding and then food and drinks were delicious.
Fantastic food, service, and atmosphere. I have truly enjoyed every single visit to GW Fins. I have always recommended GW Fins to anyone visiting New Orleans and to locals as well. Definitely a dining experience not to be missed in a city of full of incredible food and restaurants.
We go to GW Fins everytime we are in town. The food and service is phenomenal.
I wish I could give them a 6th star. This is by far my favorite dining experience since the restaurants reopened in May. The tables are well spaced and they followed all the guidelines, but you don't feel isolated from the world when you're seated. As always, the staff was very attentive and it was the closest thing I've had to a "normal" dining experience since early March. I can't wait to go back!
Perfect! My favorite NOLA restaurant.
Excellent food. Excellent service
A wonderful experience!
My husband and I love GW Fins. We've spent quite a few anniversaries here and this year was no different. A wonderful meal with a wonderful server and team. Always lovely! And the Happy Anniversary desert was a kind and delicious touch. Will for sure be back soon.
Completely unacceptable that you could book on OpenTable and when you arrive the restaurant is closed. This pandemic has been going on for months. It’s ridiculous that you treat the clients who want to support you in this manner. You don’t even check on your online reservations to make sure that it’s all disconnected to not deceive people.
We have never had less than an excellent experience at GW Fins. The food and service were excellent. I had the best tomato salad I’ve ever had.
Such a great time! from the moment we walked in Doug made sure we where taken care of. Our server marlin was outstanding and knew exactly what we wanted to drink and eat! Shawn was the best part of the night though, had us laughing from start to finish!!
Did a great job COVID 19 social distancing. Tables very spaced, staff fantastic!
Every aspect of our dining experience was excellent. Both our dinners were delicious and wait staff was exemplary.
We accidentally left cc and they called within minutes to let us know.
Cannot wait to go back!
This is a tough time in New Orleans but GW Fins delivered! Great, unique food and the best service I have had in a long time. Wonderful experience.
Excellent service, food and ambiance! I would highly recommend.
