"When people ask where in New Orleans to go for great local seafood,
I want the answer to be Borgne." - Brian Landry, Executive Chef
Chef Brian Landry grew up fishing on Lake Borgne, the epicenter of coastal cuisine in Louisiana.
His passion for Louisiana seafood brought him to create Borgne, a celebration of coastal Louisiana with a touch of Isleño influence. Borgne is a gathering place for locals and visitors alike, a CBD lunch spot, a quick bite before the game and a casual setting for a delicious dinner with friends.

Borgne Ratings and Reviews
From the food to the drinks, and from the service to the environment, everything was fantastic. It was like high-end food meets classy sports bar. My fiancè and I went to Borgne for my birthday and we both a had a great time. I ate a few raw oysters, the Shrimp Toast and the Black Drum - all amazing. My fiancè ate the Hanger steak. I don’t know what was better, that or the drum. We’ll be back!
Love this place. Great staff, eclectic menu. Get the turkey necks...seriously...just do it and the shrimp toast for appetizers. The fish bag is scrumptious and if you are a salad lover then get the grilled romaine salad and add shrimp, it is an unexpected twist on a traditional salad.
We are in NOLA all the time and Borgne never disappoints. It is one of the best values in the New Orleans for happy hour for business travelers too. Nice and professional crowd.
Dined after a Saints game and was able to get a table before reservation time. Waitress was good and food was very good. I had a cup of gumbo that was great and the fish which was perfectly cooked. Plenty of food, my husband helped me finished my meal. Definitely recommend.
We ate here just before the Sugar Bowl, and boy was it packed! So glad we made reservations. They seated us just slightly late, but as I mentioned, it was packed. The bar was standing room only. Food was absolutely delicious! Service was quick, and staff was very attentive and friendly. Atmosphere was perfect for pre-game as there were several games up on the tv's in the bar and everyone seemed hyped up for the showdown. We admired the columns in the dining room as they were dressed entirely in oyster shells! Very fitting given the location. We had the Oyster BLT, 1/2 lb jumbo shrimp (biggest we'd ever seen!), catfish sliders, salads and Roasted cauliflower soup (very good!). We'd totally hit this place up again.
I had reservations to dine before the Sugar Bowl. It was freezing outside so no one wanted to leave when they finished eating. It was a Madhouse. All the staff remained extremely polite and professional throughout the ordeal. The service was still great as was the food.
I had the shrimp po' boy and my husband had the grilled fish sandwich, both of which were very good, but the highlight was the French fries—quite possibly the best I've ever had!! And even though they were quite busy on New Year's Day prior to the Sugar Bowl, the service was great, too. Would definitely recommend!
There was total disregard for the dining public because of the loud kids at the adjacent table. No one from the establishment made any effort to ask them to be considerate of the other diners. you could have a very great dining establishment if properly managed. The lighting was not in keeping with fine dining at a special Hotel such as yours.
Sorry, I am used to more refined locations.
Despite great reviews the food was just completely disappointing. With the exception of the oysters the rest of the dishes were pretty bad...and the fish was actually not edible. The waiter was great and removed the fish from the bill. It is a shame their food did not match their level of service.
We ate at Borgne on Christmas night, so we could experience their 4-course Revellion dinner. We had heard many good things about the restaurant & were very excited about this splurge for our first night of vacation. Ultimately, we found the restaurant to be a very unwelcoming space that lacked any warmth in decor, service or food presentation. The food was average at best & was not worth the premium prices. We were very disappointed and will not go back or recommend.
My husband & I dined at Borgne on Christmas night after seeing Chef Brian Landry on Iron Chef & being impressed with his food. The meal did not disappoint! Though the price was a little steep for the casual feel of the restaurant, we had more than we could eat & the service couldn't have been better. The black drum with pecan brown butter & crab meat was spectacular! Would surely recommend to anyone looking for a delicious seafood dinner!
My boyfriend and I went fo Christmas dinner and it was absolutely amazing! I am GF and felt there were enough options to choose from that wasn't a salad or salad decision. The key lime pie was delicious. Highly recommend. We had a great waiter, Cody, and both my and my boyfriend's dinner/courses were tasty and well worth the price.
It was just OK. Expected better quality of food, since the prices were high for the holiday menu. I ordered stuffed flounder, and the stuffing had a standard 2 pieces of shrimp, as did the other two people at my table found, the rest was a glop of breading. The menu was prefixed with about 4 choices in each category. Nothing outstanding was offered, but we all wanted a fish entrée and there were two listed. For dessert I ordered a banana bread with salted caramel sauce that was obviously previously frozen which made the bread very dry and tasteless. The other dinner guests stated their dessert choice, a frozen peanut butter pie, was nothing to write home about.
The cocktails, even though they were delicious where very expensive. We expected a luxury evening based on previous reviews and website menu, but our overall experience was just pretty good.
Given there were few reservations available for Christmas dinner with only a handful of restaurants being open, this was acceptable, but way overpriced for the quality.
