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.

    The menu was very sparse--not much variation for fish--only one special--service was slow--waited a long time just for malt vinegar--the oysters were great--no ambiance-stair case very hard to get up and get down

    When eating in New Orleans, there are so many great seafood restaurants. We ended up trying Seaworthy because it was open on Thanksgiving night and had an opening. We won’t be returning. The drinks were pretty tasty, but had too much ice. I really liked the Sherman’s punch, and my husband enjoyed the Holy water. We had the crab claws for an appetizer, and those were pretty good as well. I got the oysters and scallops dish for my entree and was extremely disappointed. It should be an appetizer. There were 3 scallops and 3 small oysters. The oysters tasted bad, and I couldn’t eat them. The scallops and bread were good, just not enough. My husband got the black drum curry special, which was good. Our server did not seem too happy to help us and ready to leave. He brought us the check without asking us about dessert. We were really put off by his demeanor and decided to eat dessert and have more drinks elsewhere.

    Love the setting. Value for money is debatable. Some dishes were great others were soso. Service was correct but cold. I also didn’t like the extra charge for kitchen staff. You are allowed to cancel it but who would bother. The prices should be sufficient to pay kitchen staff proper salaries. What more strange charges can a restaurant come up with to show so-called competitive prices. They add it to the bill as a tax so you end up also paying tips on that part of the bill

    I was there for a small family thanksgiving. We went to visit NOLA just for the holiday, coming from Dallas. Everything about it was superb. Our server was phenomenal, which made our experience 1,000 times even more enjoyable. The food might have been slightly on the salty side, but I’m being picky here to find something to critique. Can’t wait to come back to NOLA to eat here again. Loved it!!

    It was a lovely Thanksgiving at Seaworthy despite my husband not feeling well. We had to ask for our meal to be packed up to go. They were very accommodating. The oysters were wonderful as well as the shrimp, crab claws, and ceviche.

    Not super nice atmosphere. More like a casual bar. Food was good except for the flavorless gumbo which was inedible, cold small and missing nearly all gumbo ingredients. My mama was from New Orleans, don’t feed by garbage soup and call it gumbo. Red snapper fish was very good. Oysters were excellent. Nice beers.

    We have dined here several times a year since they opened. Recent changes have only improved an already excellent restaurant. They always have an extensive list of cold water oysters. Best seating is on floor one near the bar, it’s always busy. The bar tenders are creative, clever in conversation and never disappoint. Floors two and three and small, low key and very New Orleans. My wife always goes for the freshly shucked oysters while I think the lobster roll is as good as any spot on Hwy 1 on the coast of Maine. Never disappoints

    The food was OK, but not good value for money. They were supposed to be open until 10pm but brought us the check at 9.15 while we were in the middle of eating, and forced us out by 9.30. One of the more disappointing dining experiences of my life.

    Food was wonderful. But we ordered white wine. Which was not chilled and brought to our table to be chilled and then server poured 4 glasses of room temp white wine which was not great. Then we asked for oyster forks. There were none clean. Then we asked for serving utensils for the shared dishes. None clean. It was a less than stellar experience but we have had amazing experiences before.

    The food was very good, the service was excellent. We sat in the courtyard and the fans created a noticeable breeze. The gumbo, pork belly, Brussel sprouts, everything was good. The cocktails were okay, but not great. Go for the food, then go out for drinks.

    We unfortunately witnessed several mice in the upper floor dinning area. This being an old house, I might understand that the issue isn't due to neglect or poor hygiene, but after we saw several of those little animals crossing the room as our appetizers were severed, the servers nonchalantly said we could switch tables, but no one apologized, nor did anything. They served us the full bill and the services was quite poor during the meal. I am quite understanding as I live in an old house but can't believe the manager or another person in charge didn't apologies for our experience. They were already quite lucky we stayed to eat and spend money. Haven't had this bad of an experience in a restaurant in a while.
