My friends recommended Fins, and I’m glad they did. The food and service were excellent. My husband has put the number in his phone so that we can make reservations before we go to New Orleans again. Can’t believe we waited so long to go.

Biscuits were practically thrown on our plates. Seemed irreverent for something so delicious. Detracts from the class of the place

Blackened barracuda was over cooked and chewy.

This place should not be considered one of the best in New Orleans.

The team of Jason & Derek made our first-time dining experience joyful. Jason’s complete menu & wine list knowledge was most helpful, plus his humor was much appreciated. The lionfish ceviche & the scalibutt were phenomenal. Will most definitely return.
