This was our second time at GW Fins, our server this time was Cardell and he was very accommodating, our empty plates never sat on the table for more than a few minutes. The food was beyond delicious. We had the lobster bisque, sea scallops and the “scalibut”. Everything was cooked to perfection. We will be coming back next time we are in New Orleans.
Had a wonderful time at GW Fins, foods was great and service was excellent.
Service and food were wonderful!! Thanks for recognizing the birthday!
The food was great. The evening was enjoyable and relaxing. The staff followed all COVID restrictions. I definitely will return.
Service was outstanding. This time around the food was bland. Crab Stickers where a miss. Swordfish was over cooked. Drinks where good. Overall it was expensive and I had better food. I’ll be back next time to see if they can redeem themselves.
Amazing dining experience! Highly recommend! The freshest seafood, amazing steak, and excellent service! A definite must when visiting New Orleansb
The service and food was over the top amazing! Could not recommend this place more! Thank you to the GW team!
Best restaurant in New Orleans. Nice to see the owner is hands on working with all the staff on quality control. Personable with every guest. Beautiful interior design. All the staff is prompt and polite.
Everyone was so courteous, gracious, and helpful! The food and atmosphere was outstanding! Great job!
Our experience at GW Fins was absolutely stellar! From the curbside delivery of our cocktails while we waited outside socially distanced, to the fantastic service, to the spectacular meal, no attention to detail was spared.
Fallon was our server and her suggestions were perfect! We enjoyed the Lobster Dumplings, Crispy Pork Belly, Scalibut, Blackened Red Snapper, and a Chocolate Bomb all perfectly paired with wine.
The experience at GW Fins couldn't have been more impeccable.
Love this restaurant soooo much!
Everything was 10/10. Our server was fantastic, I wish I could remember her name. Light hair, glasses, super funny and professional. My party of four had a great time and every single dish we ordered (and we ordered 11 things!) was phenomenal.
Went there on vacation 2 times because we had such a good experience. Contemporary in decor. Fresh caught local fish.
This was a great experience. We felt safe with the Covid precautions in place and the food and service were amazing as always!
Everything is always amazing here! Best restaurant in the quarter!
Wonderful experience. Food was delicious and the service was excellent.
Went for a special birthday celebration and every one of the staff recognized it and made the occasion very special. The food, staff and ambiance were outstanding.
The food and atmosphere was outstanding! We were very happy with our dishes and service. Would highly recommend for a nice evening out!
Wonderful food, loves the Scalibut.
I am a local to New Orleans. This is a restaurant designed to appeal to tourists. There are significantly better options for food in the local area, most of which do not involve the French Quarter. The lobster dumplings tasted like they'd been boiled in water and wished good luck. The pork belly was okay, but Gris Gris has better (for cheaper...). We didn't order dessert, because I couldn't handle the thought of another disappointing dish.
The drinks, while expensive, were decent. I've had much more amazing drinks at Revel and Cochon. The blue cheese stuffed olives in the martini were probably the best part of the entire experience. Although, we really enjoyed the biscuit guy who was very sweet and generous with the biscuits!
The restaurant itself is really lovely. The metal fish artwork is beautiful, and the fish bones on the columns, doubling as coat/purse holders, was very clever. But it really is a tourist destination. I'd much rather spend that kind of cash at Bayona, if the goal is to stay in the Quarter.
The French Quarter was a bit of a mess with unmasked people everywhere, people blaring radios from their bikes as they ride by, and guys revving their motorcycles at deafening levels, but GW Fins is a nice, quiet getaway from the chaos outside. The food is great with service to match. We live in NO and have been several times and never left disappointed....Sadly, we could not get out of the Quarter fast enough after our meal. We did not feel safe 😢
A thoroughly enjoyable dining experience! The food was exceptional (although the two appetizers: tuna tartare and ahi tacos) were just average. I love that they maintain a strict dress code and have collared shirts available for those that show up in t-shirts.
First time at GW fins was quite an experience. The waiter (Jared) was the best.
He helped us find what we would like on the menu. The barbecue shrimp was outstanding. The "scalibut" was so unique, I loved it. Overall A plus experience.
Excellent service, food, and drinks, as per usual. I only wish we had been able to hear our server a little better but with the masks we know it can be difficult. GW Fin's went out of their way to celebrate our anniversary with us and make it a celebratory night. Wonderful experience and we'll certainly be back!
Everything was perfect! Seated in a nice booth. Our waiter was very attentive without being overbearing.
Both of us had the fall feast with seafood entree. Was just in heaven. The shrimp appetizer that was included in the 3 course meal was to die for! Hubby had lobster bisque which he said was excellent.
Our drinks, cosmo and brandy Alexander were well prepared. Decent pours on the wine. The tab was reasonable for what we had. Service was superb! Would highly recommend!
It was great. They did something for our anniversary. Just great!
We come here every year for Anniversary. Food and service was excellent. Wish we would have gotten a booth.
Amazing. So glad we eat here. The reviews were right. Definitely a must do in New Orleans
We loved every tongue-pleasing bite. Romance on a fork.
Excellent food and outstanding service! Would highly recommend. From Appetizers to dessert, everything was amazing!
The experience at GW Fins was amazing from start to finish. When making our reservation, I made a note that it was mine and my husband's first wedding anniversary. Everyone we interacted with at the restaurant wished us a happy anniversary and our table was decorated for the occasion. It was such a nice touch. Each staff member from our main waiter to the gentleman who brought us fresh biscuits were kind and professional. The food was phenomenal! Their Fall Feast menu is a great deal and their portions are large. Would highly recommend GW Fins!
Felix was fabulous, made sure everything was perfect. The food was fantastic and the staff extremely attentive. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for creative seafood option in New Orleans.
Food was exquisite. Service was impeccable. Definitely a place to enjoy any occasion to celebrate.
Food was well cooked but surprisingly really bland. I think they forgot the salt and seasoning. Service was wonderful. Biscuits were delicious but main courses were just not the best. Not worth that price really.
Hostess was very accommodating. All wait staff were excellent. Meal was wonderful. Chocolate mousse dessert was "to die for"...
Can’t go wrong at GW! Second time I’ve been there and it’s outstanding. If you like GREAT seafood then this is the place.
Went to celebrate milestone birthday. When booking I informed them of this, additionally that we do not drink alcohol. We were shown a table with a tasteful amount of confetti and upon sitting down to “mocktails” designed for us were brought over. Food was delicious.
My husband and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary here. This place is absolutely amazing! The food was immaculate as well as the service. The tempura fin wing appetizer is very tasteful! That was one of the four appetizers we ordered because we loved every bite. We will definitely be back.
My sons 23rd birthday, everything was delicious! Great service from Mr. Marlon
Thanks for making it memorable!
