"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 came here the other night with 7 other women. We were in town for a conference. We ordered drinks at the bar before being seated. The drinks were so good, and the service was great. We had the duck poppers - melt in your mouth goodness! Several of my friends ordered "Fish in a Bag" and they couldn't stop raving about it. Its a simple dish, but so much flavor! I had the grilled salad, and oysters...so good. I also had the chocolate angle food cake for dessert and it was well presented and everyone took a bite! We all loved it! I would highly recommend this place. Fantastic food and great service!

The experience was less than satisfying. We reserved the spot for our anniversary dinner, and had no problems checking in and being seated. However our server, whom we didn't even know was our server, walked past us many times before finally stopping and taking our drink order. She also brought us bread with no silverware or napkins, and walked by us several more times before catching on that we were trying to get her attention. The appetizer of duck jalepeno bites was absolutely delicious. Best thing we ate all night. I ordered from the raw bar, a dozen oysters, and my husband ordered the steak and truffle parmesan fries. My oysters came out on very dirty oyster shells, and were only half cut away from the shells. They tasted fine, but the presentation and the way I prefer to eat them was less than optimum. My husband's steak came with butter on top of the steak and an extra side of butter. Our server admitted that it wasn't plated the way she usually saw it, and couldn't explain what it was for. The fries were very soggy and almost cold. The steak was delicious, however. We ordered the Dark Angel dessert, and angel food cake and chocolate mousse concoction, but were only given a tiny piece of cake, with a huge serving of mousse and ice cream. It was visually very unappealing. Our server once again told us that is not how it was supposed to be plated, and was actually much different looking than she had ever seen it. She was very nice and took away our dessert, and brought us drinks, but the overall issues of the dinner far outweighed the drinks. We were left wishing we had spent our anniversary somewhere different. Being out of town for the occasion, we probably won't have an opportunity to revisit, but definitely wouldn't be inclined to after the small but consistent issues.

The menu options were lacking on this trip. The food was good, but I wasn’t in the mood for fish. I wound up getting the oyster blt. It was great. I did like the old version better with pork belly instead of bacon. A little disappointed, but I’ll definitely go back.

The food was great and the service was spot on. As a foodie, I loved the Turkey necks, you have to try them. Also, you'll want to get the duck gumbo. Just about everything is excellent. If there was one fault it would be the shrimp was a little done for my taste. But the black drum was amazing!!!!

There were 6 of us gathered prior to the Paul Simon concert for dinner. It was my first time to Borgne. In spite of the crowd ( noise) The service was excellent. Our server, Kayla, provided everything we wanted in a timely manner and we were delighted. Thanks Kayla.

It was a busy night as Paul Simon was playing around the corner, so the restaurant was packed. We ended up waiting 10 minutes for our table, we made a reservation, but it was a busy night. They ran out of some dishes and the service was Ok. It took awhile to get our drinks and when they took our order they only took half the table's order, then served those drinks, then come back and took the rest of the table's ordered. It was over $200 for 4 of us just for small dishes. So be aware if you are on a budget.

I would go back and try it on another evening.

Borgne is a "go to" place for us when we attend events at the Smoothie King. The food is always good and the bar scene is always vibrant. The oysters are always good and their burger is exceptionally good. Great drink & beer selection also.

The food was good. The restaurant was annoyingly loud and it was really hard to talk. Service was OK. If you are going to an event at the Smoothie King Center or Superdome it's ideal.

Had dinner here before a show at Smoothie King Center - very convenient - just a short walk from the restaurant. My husband and I split a few tapas, all were very good, but the torched mahon (cheese) was especially flavorful and indulgent. The shrimp tacos were dripping wet, but tasty. Our son had mac and cheese which was simple but good and the hazelnut pudding/ice cream. Overall a good experience. Our waitress was very pleasant and helpful but either overbooked or having very needy customers at other tables. We only got her attention a couple times and waited to place additional drink orders longer than we'd have liked.

Very nice hip type atmosphere, Windows facing Loyola Drive and is attached to Hyatt Regency Downtown New Orleans so people watchers would love this location. All the breads and crustinies tasted like it was made in house, so fresh. All of our party of 5’s food was delicious. The portion size is moderate, price is higher than I’m used to paying, but for the experience it was worth it.

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.

My second visit was much better than my first. i would not recommend Borgne on a night when the Superdome or the Smoothie King arena are having an event. Not their fault, everyone has the same idea - eat at Bornge then attend the event. On a quieter night we enjoyed excellent service in a relaxed atmosphere, while being served exceptional courses. - highly reecomended

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.
