Pretty good food, but a borging location in a hotel. Went here on a recommendation.
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.
Get the turkey necks! And then get as much as you can eat!!! Terrific.
Food was great. Had a couple of service issues. Silverware had to be asked for. One of my guests received the wrong order.
Was disappointed by the very hotel atmosphere. The food was fine, but there was nothing special about this place.
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.
My husband and I were attending the Luke Bryan concert and we were looking for a restaurant within walking distance. Many had recommended Borgne. I was excited and I really wanted to love it! The food was a huge disappointment. We ordered many things on the menu; no flavor. However, the roasted cauliflower soup was to do die for! The ambiance was great and I loved that they were playing country music in the background; def got me hyped to see Luke Bryan.
Really enjoyed the seafood
everything extremely fresh
seafood tower was devoured
Not as advertised, the food was mediocre, while the service was great the food did not match up to the reviews on the internet
It was ok. The problem is nothing stood out and with all of the excellent food in the area it is hard to recommend this spot. If I was staying at the hotel and in a hurry to grab and go, it would be fine but if I had the time to venture out, I probably would do so. The service was nice but a bit slow.
We started off with the raw Louisiana oysters and they were nice and salty. My husband had the house salad and could not get over how fresh and light the salad was. He said the pears were delicious. I had the fried catfish sliders for my main meal and they were great. The fish was fried perfectly and the chow chow was awesome. My husband had the Friday special of catfish with a red gravy and rice and he said it was very good as well. Will definitely be dining her again.
We had great service and a good time. The three of us splits some small plates and then splurged on the Trawler Seafood Tower. Craft cocktails were delicious. Perfect pre-theatre experience. Loved the art too.
Our family group of 8 enjoyed an afternoon meal here prior to seeing Cirque du Soleil at the nearby Smoothie King Center. The food was wonderful and the location was perfect.
Dined here for our anniversary before the Cirque du Soleil show. Will definitely be back!
Oysters good. Burger just ok. Not worth the price.
Staying at the Hyatt Regency for a business conference, I ate at Borgne twice. Not only is it convenient (staying in the hotel on a rainy night) - the food and service are both excellent. I enjoyed a craft cocktail at the bar and when an associate showed up, we decided to stay there for dinner. Try the charred corn...try the grilled romaine salad...all oyster dishes I sampled were wonderful. I would recommend Borgne to anyone, whether a hotel guest or not!
We had a great dinner. Our food was exceptional and the service was on point.
Manager came to check on our satisfaction. It was a great dinner!
Great fresh seafood and unique small plates. They may not sound good, but try turkey necks and smoked catfish for a different treat. I stayed with small plates so that I could have a dessert. The banana cake had a fantastic combination of flavors and textures.
Our group of four went here before a concert at the arena. The place was packed. Nonetheless, the service and the food were great. The staff was well prepared for the pre-concert crowd. We were impressed by the highly efficient service of food and drinks despite the crowd. I would highly recommend Borgne for a meal before (or maybe after) an event at the dome or the arena. The food was really good, and the menu is well priced.
Food and service were on point.
We had dinner here before a show at the Smoothie King center and the food, drinks and service were all great.
They had an excellent beer selection, the oysters were fresh and my friend enjoyed her fish entrée.
We were just 2 and we went early (before 5 PM) so we were finished with plenty of time to make the show.
Interesting place with creative cuisine. For example, the grilled romaine salad with ham chips and cheese. We ordered appetizers, salads, and tapas, just to have a variety. Everything was very tasty. This is not the regular "Creole" touristy food. It's much better, with interesting twists on regular dishes, like the asparagus salad with bacon and the fried catfish on tiny buns. All very well-done. The service was prompt and attentive. The ambiance is pretty cool, too, with oyster shell columns and a lively bar. I didn't like the booth-style seating much, but it was ok. A great restaurant overall.
Very enjoyable meal in pleasant atmosphere! Thanks so much!
Delicious food and excellent service!
I really like it
All of the different plates were great tasting. Enjoyed the drinks. Our server was terrific and attentive.Very enjoyable.
Staying at the hotel and decided not to go out.
Went here after looking at some reviews and was very happy we did.
Must haves are the oysters.
Also turkey necks were delicious.
Had the drum fish and was very light and tasty.
Would go again.
Service and food was just ok
Shrimp toast was to die for. Fried chicken looked more like a pigeon and was over seasoned with lemon. The waitress was nice but not very attentive. Ambience was ok. Overall, overpriced.
Our server was Awesome (Emily) our food on the other hand was average at the very best! The reviews suggested Borgne offered the best in fresh seafood? The menu is very limited and the seafood was basic and our Shrimp was mushy (old). TBH-I didn’t complain as most of our 10 top were Business colleagues although the consensus at the table was the same. The best experience was dessert that the bartender offered from a previous visit in the week that was worse! Honestly-Borgne missed the mark on 2 visits in the same week. The manager must receive customer service lessons as he could honestly care less! Again bright spots were Emily, desert and Colby bartender!
Excellent food, service and value. Very tasty. Great menu selection. Get the toast!
Took my wife for Valentine's dinner here very nice choice of foods. Service was well and Swift, prices were very good for the food that was served.
We really enjoyed our time here. We went for valentine's day and the atmosphere was great. The waiter was very attentive and gave honest reviews and options for the menu. We feasted like kings with the broiled oysters started, the rosemary bread, and then delicious blackened fish and for my boyfriend, the mouth watering steak. Ultimately, finishing the night with their delicious banana bread pudding and ice cream. I died a little. I would highly recommend for a romantic night or a special occasion.
Braised Turkey Necks and the Chocolate Hazelnut Pudding were my favorites! Everything that I had there was yummy!
We were at a conference and not wanting to go out. The selection was okay.
Very fresh seafood, friendly staff, overall would highly recommend. We ordered a seafood tower which had dressings and sauces so really showcased the quality of the food that is served.
Excellent Turkey NECKS! Don't laugh until you try them! YUM!
This place lived up to the hype! Best oysters I’ve ever had. Go!!!
