Food was wonderful. The scallops are still my favorite. Biscuits are amazing- hot out of the oven. Benjamin, one of our waiters, was spectacular.

Fantastic experience. They made my birthday celebration special. The lobster dumpling appetizer is a must try! Expansive wine list, delicious food and great service. Be sure to have a reservation on the busy nights. Nice bar area as well to just go for drinks.

They serve biscuits instead of bread and they are the best I’ve ever had!! I had spadefish for the first time at the recommendation of our waiter. It was expertly prepared! My husband had scalibut, halibut wrapped in thin sliced scallops and a friend had soft shell crab. There were no complaints! They have a large selection of wines by the glass and bottle. I highly recommend GW Fins.

Attentive service, but my fish had the taste of ham to it, (prob cooked in the same pan) and there was a mistake on our bill. It was corrected after we brought it to their attention. Ambiance is nice. But kind of dull with the lack of music. I could hear some music coming from the bar faintly.

The food was so amazing I cannot begin to say. Our server Ken was attentive and personable. The shrimp and grits, crab cakes, and ruby red shrimp appetizers were phenomenal.... the Scalibut is a must try. I wasn’t a fan of the peach Panna cotta but I think that comes down to preference. I could seriously bath in the cremé brûlée

We have been visiting New Orleans yearly for many years now and tried G.W. Fins for the first time this year. We we’re not disappointed. Good food and our server Destiny was there when we needed her without getting in the way. The cost of the meal was also reasonable for New Orleans. We will be back.

There is a rule that men must wear a shirt with a collar. This restaurant is not nice enough to require such a rule. Also, it makes no sense when shorts are allowed. My friend was wearing a solid blue t-shirt, nice pants, and boots and we were made to sit in the bar area (he was also offered a shirt to borrow). We saw both men and women in shorts in the main dining area. Weird.

A GREAT place to meet for dinner before a show at the Saenger Theater. Seafood is excellently prepared, and the varieties of fish is amazing. I suggest that everyone in your group order something different so that you can truly experience the difference in preparation. It's all so good. And if the soft shell crab is available as an appetizer, go for it!
