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 have 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.

*Please be advised: in accordance with current City of New Orleans health restrictions, anyone 12 years of age and older must provide proof of at least one dose of an approved COVID vaccine or negative PCR test within 72 hours to enter any indoor dining establishment.

Love this place so very much. We’ve been spoiled every time we go in. I would recommend reservations ahead of time cause they can fill up fast. Happy Hour is terrific deal.
The staff is beyond gracious, so patient & thoughtful.
Love you folks!

We love dining outside in the courtyard at Seaworthy! Relaxing and fun setting. We started with the Cobia and the Crab Dip which were both great. Gulf fish had delicious crispy skin. Scallops were excellent with sweet potato grits. Fun cocktails too!

Located just a few doors down from our hotel, we stopped in for a late dinner. Amazing dinner service -we loved the oysters and redfish. Will definitely come back for the spicy mezcal cocktail on my next visit!

This is quickly becoming my NOLA favorite. Great raw oysters. Seafood gumbo may not have been the best ever but it was certainly very good & full of seafood & sausage, very satisfying. I had blackened scallops for my entree, & they were outstanding with just the right size portion. If you are a Bourbon fan, get the McKittrick Old Fashioned.

The place is comfortable & has a cool vibe & ambience. Although I was alone, it would be a great place for a date or even a double date. Service was excellent too. This was my second visit & certainly not my last.

Not worth the price. Oysters were smelly and seemed like they had just been thawed. The catfish sandwich had no flavor and minimal tartar sauce. The credit card machine was also down so had to leave information which was an inconvenience. Overall would not go back.

Thank you for a lovely evening. We made very good use of the Happy Hour oysters. We would have loved to know the seating options ahead of time - outdoor patio, second floor dining room, bar area - and been able to choose.

All oysters were great but 100% recommend The murder Point oysters! The mussels were yummy with the avocado sauce- not too filling, perfect if looking for a light meal. The shrimp Po Boy was great too but more of a filling meal.

I give the restaurant 2 stars because the employees were extremely nice and the ambience was lovely. The food was far below average and quite disgusting. I ordered the mussels entree which arrived in a very unpleasant muddy green water that tasted equally as bad as it looked. I also ordered the seafood pasta which couldn't have been more than noodles and a few shrimp covered in canned unseasoned tomato sauce. The servings were also quite small for the high prices. I would not recommend this restaurant due to the poor-tasting food.

We tried the Coolinary menu. Everything was very tasty, but portion sizes were very small - we all left hungry. The kitchen seemed to be having some issues, but our server did everything he could to make the experience great.

We had a great anniversary dinner at Seaworthy! August was a great waiter and helped us pick out a wonderful meal and great wine selections. The oysters were wonderful and it was so great to be able to try some that were from the East and West coast, not just the gulf!

Great food!

Waiter was friendly but not very engaging. Not until prompted, did she review the menu or specials with us. We did not receive napkins or utensils until after the first appetizer was placed on the table - which we had to ask for.
Although the food was served hot and expeditiously, items were continuously add to the table without empty plates being cleared until asked.

Aside from the standard hospitable gestures listed above - my experience was great! I would highly recommend this restaurant! Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious and bursting with flavor. The Pork Belly and French Fries (yes fries! 🤤 ) are a MUST try.

Everyone was kind and gracious. I will certainly be back!

The menu listed on Open Table did not reflect their current menu, so it’s best to call or visit their website. Also, some menu selections were not available like the Chargrilled Oysters and their restaurant is listed as an “oyster bar”!!

Would have given a 5 star review, but we sensed some staffing issues, and had inordinately long wait times for our beverages from the bar, and for our dessert. Food was excellent, and the staff were friendly and polite. Seaworthy was able to accommodate our family member in a power wheelchair nicely. I will try this restaurant again.
