"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.

I was looking for a place to meet friends for an early dinner. Chose Borgne because it had good Yelp reviews and for its proximity to their hotel.
I didn’t realize in my haste that Borgne is located in the Hyatt. After making the reservation, I was wary about my choice, but everything turned out just fine.
I was pleased when I walked into Borgne by the impressive bar area. When I return, it will be for Happy Hour and I’ll stick to a cocktail and bites!
We had the Drum, Fish in a Bag and Fried Chicken. All were delicious. The Fried Chicken was especially good and uniquely seasoned. Pretty yummy food! And excellent service as well.
I think Borgne is an excellent choice for lunch rather than dinner simply due to the ambience and location. I would also highly recommend it for an early evening bar bite and cocktail!

The last reservation was at the time the kitchen closed so the staff clearly was trying to rush us out and didn’t want us there. They shouldn’t offer reservations at the same time they want to close because we were just rushed and awkward.

Good place. convient to the Dome& Smoothie King arena. Easy walk to both for events. Food is consistently good. Menu somewhat restrictive. Generally good service. Management very attentive.

i take part of the blame for reserving a table on an event night - but we, my wife and I, were going to the event and staying at the Hyatt! We were also celebrating our anniversary which i made known. We were seated served drinks, appetizers, and entrees all within 20 minutes. When ordering the dessert i asked the waiter to give us about 10 minutes, stating how i felt rushed. The desert arrived 30 minutes later with an apology. Other than that the food was good, the ambiance non-existent, the noise was extremely loud. Didn't really enjoy the evening.

Creative, well executed dishes. Really enjoyed the shrimp toast, wedge salad (great smoky unexpected flavor), and fish in a bag. We'll designed space in an unexpected location at the Hyatt. We'll be back.

A return visit for several in our group. The turkey neck appetizers were good, but lacked a little flavor. The duck poppers were excellent! Everyone enjoyed their fish, especially, the fish in a bag! We didn't have room for dessert, but will order one next time! Our server, Bailey, was very friendly, attentive (but not pesky, thank heaven). Will definitely return on our next trip to NOLA.

Good place before Smoothie King events. Good bar scene including food---catfish sliders. Can get very busy before concerts, so reservations are generally needed. Stuffed flounder reminds me of the way it used to be done at the West End seafood places.

We took the whole family for father’s day (two 7 year olds) and everything was delicious. The cocktails, oysters, apps, entrees and desert did not disappoint. This is next level dining for a hotel. We will be back. Thank you.

Not impressed with food with this being a Besh restaurant. Our expectations were quite high since we've followed him for years, but this was quite a disappointment. French Fries were served cold, coffee was luke warm at best, fish tasted blah, and was cooked to a mealy texture. PARKING WAS A FREAKING NIGHTMARE! Probably won't return.

Every time I go whether with a large group or a small table of two, the experience is wonderful. The food showcases the Spanish culinary heritage of New Orleans cuisine along with the local traditions of the New Orleans culinary culture. The service is always friendly and good, and the food speaks for itself. A truly good go to restaurant no matter the occasion.

As a New Orleanian I would have to say this is the worst restaurant I've been to in years. The food was truly awful. I took an out of town guest and I was embarrassed. The service was fine and the oysters were fine. The gumbo ,on the other hand, was bland, it wasn't even roux based and lacked any local flavor. The stuffed flounder had zero presentation and zero taste. The stuffing would have been better if the would have used stove top! If you are looking for a local food experience this is not the place.

We had drinks & dinner before the Maroon 5 show. It was packed with concert goers, as expected. Lively crowd, fun atmosphere and good food. Service was good, in light of how busy they were. We ordered the Speckled trout and it was fantastic

We visited Borgne because it was great location and good food. Also, the great happy hour. But we found out that when any event is going on by nearby Smoothie King or Superdome, they do not have happy hour! It is not advertised that way.

Planned timing for happy hour (earlier than our usual dinner time
The waiter said they were too busy to prepare happy hour apps and would not honor happy hour prices on drinks even though opentable said happy hour everyday
They weren’t that busy
Food was good but not special
Overall disappointed

This was the worst service that I’ve received in a very long time. It was a big party so I expect the food to be slow, but we never saw our server and had to beg him to replace our expensive alcoholic beverages. The food was pretty good BUT they ran out of everything - even ketchup for the fries and crackers for oysters!! We won’t be back for a very long time.

Took WAY too long to get drinks to our table. Food came out the same time as drinks. Noticed that the bar tender had fixed the drinks and put for waitress to pick up. They sat there a fairly long time while she talked to other staff members. The waitress was as cute as a button but not attentive at all.

The shrimp toast was excellent, the crawfish bread was good, the seafood platter was tasty and moderately priced, drinks were sufficiently potent.
