"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.

Oysters were very good. Fried chicken wasn't that great. Flounder was amazing. Wine selection should have more fine wines. The restaurant should lower the overall lighting. Felt like eating in a shopping mall.

Borgne always delivers excellent Louisiana food and attentive service - truly one of New Orleans's sleeper hits - but I was especially pleased to see how well they handled a large group that included kids. The kids menu pleased all the kids while their parents really enjoyed the large shared cocktails and delicious seafood. The kids even dropped their iPads long enough to appreciate the cool chalk drawings and artwork scattered around the restaurant!

Food was very good but felt like being in an upscale cafeteria in a college town. Not warm or inviting and somewhat loud
Chairs were hard
Food was good but overpriced

I have been to Borgne many times. Always a great experience. We were celebrating someone's college graduation. I put that in the notes on Open Table. The wait staff congratulated the student and brought complimentary dessert. It was such a nice touch and really appreciated.

This was our last night in NOLA. Food was typical hotel fare, nothing special. Waiters were wearing jeans, did not fit with the atmosphere. Decor was nice. Would not recommend

The appetizers were very good. Neck bones and duck poppers worth eating. The entrees were okay. Our main meal was brought out with the dirty appetizer dishes on the table. The food runner looked at us expecting us to move the dishes it seemed. Much better places to go

Last minute hotel lunch reminded me to better plan my lunch breaks. Soggy barely warm fries out of a jar mayo on the po-boy and the broiled oysters had a nice crust but were cool? The guy next to me had the fried chicken lunch special and he was very happy. He worked nearby and advised me to stick with the lunch special.

We came with a large party with ever changing numbers. They were very accommodating and very understanding of being a little late/having one person come later, etc. they were also great about accommodating food allergies and getting us things everyone liked. The food was mostly great. A few dishes were a little bland but overall it was delicious! I would definitely recommend!

We started off with the seafood tower, which had crawfish maison, royal red shrimp (onions, celery & aioli) and boiled shrimp. The boiled shrimp were over boiled, but still good. The bottom layer had premium oysters and gulf oysters on the half shell. It was really great.
We also had the duck poppers, which were wrapped in bacon. Totally awesome.
I had the sous vide fried chicken (I'm allergic to gilled fish). It was as good as my grandmother's.

The menu was limited in its focus, but we were able to find options that worked. The food itself was cooked well, but it could have been seasoned more. This restaurant seemed to be more focused on the ambiance of the dining experience than the actual quality of the dining.

My daughter is Vegan and she found several dishes to choose from. The décor was very unique with a nautical flare that we all loved. The restaurants support of oyster shell program was important reason for our booking.

Came here for Easter brunch with my visiting family. The appetizers (duck poppers, grilled oysters and shrimp toast) were great. The sauce on the shrimp toast was a little sweet and I didn't care for it, but I always love seeing shrimp toast on a menu. I got the oyster BLT, it was a little bland, it needed salt and little spice. The pork belly was a little bland as well. My bf got the turkey necks as his meal and he was eating them silently the entire time, so that's a sign it was really good. My uncle had the whole fish with a side of the machoux, he loved it. My aunt got the fried chicken and loved it, it wasn't over battered but still crispy. My cousin got the burger. He said it was a good burger. All in all it was a very good meal. The service was wonderful and they didn't impose on us and let us chat. I'd definitely recommend this in the future.

Also my bf really wanted to try the fish in a bag. I saw the table next to us open two of them, it looked beautiful

Been eating here since they opened. I’ve given several reviews. All good. Pretty consistent. Great spot for a meal prior to an event at the arena. Great for clients and guests. Get the shrimp toast appetizer when you arrive. It’s shrimp stuffed toast, not like you get elsewhere. Nobody will complain. Fish in a bag always good. Bone in flounder for people with experience who know bone in is better. You must be experienced at eating it this way. I grew up with it. There’s more on the menu, of course. Don’t forget about the lunch specials.

Four of us sought a good restaurant with quiet-to-moderate noise level so that we could discuss business, conversing at normal tone, and not be hurried. Our experience was perfect. 90 minutes in-an-out, business, meal, and everything. I'll do it again.

We ate there several times during our stay. The raw oysters were delicious on several occasions. The trout cooked in paper was amazing and the seafood platter was perfect. Service was very good and the desserts were delicious. The noise at night was a little loud, but during the day it was very nice. Overall a great experience and we will go back.

If this were our first visit to Borgne, I’d have rated it as Very Good. The food was good, but not great. And the service was excellent. The prices were a bit high, but not excessively so.

But this was not our first visit. And several dishes were not up to past standards. Of course, there’s no way to change the raw oysters themselves. But the cocktail sauce that accompanied them was not as spicy as in the past. And there was no horse radish to add (though in hind sight, we should have asked; it might have been available).

The stuffing for our flounders seemed to be primarily panko bread crumbs with very few shrimp and little crabmeat. In the past, it was a rich, creamy stuffing with ample shrimp and crabmeat. The flounder itself was still quite good.

The hazelnut pudding dessert was also not up to past standards. On our last visit, the condensed milk ice cream in the dessert had been replaced with regular vanilla ice cream. This time, not only was it regular vanilla ice cream, but the pudding had very little hazelnut flavor and there were far fewer chunks of chocolate than in the past.

We mentioned our disappointment with the flounder to our waitress. She indicated she’d let the new chef know. And she provided us with a complimentary key lime dessert.

The original premise of the restaurant was to serve traditional New Orleans fishing camp food. Our sense is that the menu has been toned down to appeal to the taste of out of town visitors staying in the hotel. Locals are likely to be disappointed.

I can only assume that they’re listening to the majority of their customers. Though I would have thought they’d have a good number of locals eating there before or after events at the Superdome and Arena.

For us, the things that made Borgne a special destination in its own right have disappeared. We’ll give it one more try, but only when we’re in the neighborhood and it’s convenient.

The food was very commercial. Two out of four had the stuffed whole flounder. First the server should let it be known that it is served bone in and second it was stuffed with a heavy stuffing that didn’t have any seafood in it.
