    The food was quite good and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. There was a young woman who seemed to be both seating people and busing tables who was very energetic and quite impressive. Our server was wonderful and even though the 20% gratuity was included on the bill, we felt we wanted to tip her more.

    Went for dinner mid week in November. We had the hot crab dip for starters. We had the award winning poboy with jalapeño grits and the blackened gulf fish(sheepshead) with some kind of cheese potato cake. HOLY COW. Everything was amazing. One of the best meals we’ve had. We also were treated to a small random New Orleans parade; went right by the restaurant. Make this place a ‘must visit’ if you are in New Orleans.

    We checked in early for our open table reservation (they put a hold on my credit card to prevent no shows). As we were checking in, the host took a phone call and left us waiting. Someone else then came to seat us. We were attracted to this restaurant because online they promoted 4-6 happy hour specials which included $1 oysters. When we arrived we were told “that ended well over a year ago…we really should take that off our site.” We ordered a dozen char grilled oysters for $28. They were oily and tasted burnt. Rest of the food was ok. Server was super nice but service overall was slow. Next morning, open table notified me that I was a “no show” which I then had to dispute.

    Grand Isle RestaurantResponded on October 20, 2022Sorry to hear this. I am not sure what dated article you were reviewing but nowhere on our web site does it say that we have $1 oysters. We did at one time when oysters were reasonably priced but now they are not. The only food item mentioned for happy hour on OUR website is the half pound of boiled shrimp. We cannot control what others post in history. The phone call does not seem unreasonable but thank you for bringing the "no show" to our attention so that we can address this in training.

    The waiter was rude and took so long for him to return to our table, there is also already an included 20% tip in our check so it makes it look like they don’t care how they serve you because they already have a guaranteed tip. The food was ok but nothing special, forgot about our sides and everything is over fried.

    The menu reads more like a white tablecloth table but the atmosphere is very casual. They reservation required a credit card and I could not modify it through open table which was an inconvenience. Overall the food was great, the service was good but it is not a business dinner atmosphere.

    First time visiting and I was totally unaware of this NOLA staple. Service was excellent. Drinks were outstanding and the food was great. My only issue was how tiny the table was for 4 people. Definitely not enough room for drinks, appetizers and a meal. But, great place to visit.
