Seafood
Seaworthy showcases wild-caught and sustainably harvested oysters from American waters — Gulf Coast, East Coast, and West Coast alike — as well as locally sourced fish and game. The celebrated beverage program offers both classic and proprietary cocktails, with a smart selection of beer and wine. Set in a classic Creole cottage built in 1832, Seaworthy was opened by Ace Hotel with support from the team at Grand Banks. Please note that we only stair access to our second and third floor. Seaworthy culls inspiration from Gulf Coast waterways, the time-worn traditions of Southern hospitality and the legendary exuberance of the city of New Orleans.

Food was excellent, service was great. Had a birthday dinner there and was the perfect end to a NOLA girls trip

Seated relatively quickly although the entrance is claustrophobic. I don’t like the stools downstairs for dining, likely done due to how narrow the walkways are. Ordered a Bombay Sapphire martini, made with regular without asking - but they quickly remedied. Oysters were excellent but should come with toast points or at least some crackers at the price point. Greens salad and burger were excellent. Service was very slow, the server had too many tables to attend to - my wife’s second drink didn’t show up until 15-20 mins later (after we were done eating). Manager comped the drink though which was appreciated. Great food, but felt like I was working.

The oysters are great. The elegant grunge look of the place is cool. The black kale with burrata, not at all good -- too vinegary, with limp kale propped up on croutons to make it look more substantial. Our server was incredibly stressed, rushed, and distracted. She forgot my glass of wine until well after my oysters came, and she forgot the second cocktail for the woman at the table next to us, bringing it so late that they returned it. Our bill was split incorrectly at the end, and she actually rolled her eyes when we asked her to fix it.

We were early but they sat us like we were right on time. Friendly knowledgeable staff. The scallops were beyond exceptional, meaty and tender with and simple tasty sauce. Really liked the squash that was spicy and quite savory.

Food was incredibly overpriced for the quality. The table we sat at was tiny, on top of those next to us, and the chair was just a stool without a back.

The oysters were lovely. The roasted beet salad was not good and I sent it back. Then there was the mushroom toast that was really poor but I did not want to complain again so I took it to go, but threw it away when I got home.
So sad, because while we are not weekly regulars it has always been a go to place for special occasions.

While planning our third trip from our home on Hawaii we came across Seaworthy. It reminded us of one of our old favorite oyster bars in Williamsburg Brooklyn called Maison Premier. The differences between the two are the following. Maison Premier offers many more oysters and the similarities are striking. Both have an amazing staff. Both create unique and awesome dishes like the Bouillabaisse which rivaled some of Frances best. The atmosphere is old, quaint and historic as is at Maison Premier. Seaworthy s hamburger might be one of the best we’ve ever had. If you are after something new, not found in all of Nola with a superb choice of oysters that for us happily include our briny north east coast Barnstables etc. then Seaworthy is for you. It’s on our new list for our fourth return visit

lovely place but large party of women in next room ruined the ambiance. Staff should have intervened. We asked that a door be closed to reduce the noise. Prices for the oysters on line were not the same prices as the actual menu???

Seaworthy seemed Amazing. Hostess was nothing but sweet and accommodating. The bartender while smart and clearly very capable, was having a bad day. Something might have happened in their personal life... but she brought it to work. Or so it seemed. Couldn’t make eye contact, overwhelmed, frustrated with other staff and tasks. She was no help with menu items or drink selections, answering questions with one word answers was clearly dismissive and inattentive. Clearly there was a staffing issue. I don’t think it was her... there were other things accumulating, but it ruined our experience. We were glad to get the bill after our appetizers and move on to the next destination.

We enjoys the food. It was fresh and flavorful! Th waitress was cordial but slow on the wine --> they didn't have it (Portuguese Doro)! Unfortunately her alternative (cheap French Rhone blend) wasn't even close to what I ordered. New Orleans is not a place for great wine! Otherwise a good value and a good time!

This is the only place I know of in New Orleans where you can get a variety of oysters from other regions. The food and drinks are always great. The service is meh but I would truly recommend Seaworthy to anyone who loves oysters and seafood. It’s also one of the few places you can get shishito peppers at.

The food was average and the service was alright. When we walked in 5 minutes late, our reservation had been given away and we were told to wait at the bar. The host giggled about it. We decided just to eat at the bar. The food was alright with the exception of the horseradish buckwheat. I did not like it at all. It appears this is a very good place for oysters but not much else.

We usually love Seaworthy, but tonight was a bit of a miss compared to what they usually provide. Still, we think it might have been an off night. We’ll be back.
