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.

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.

We head a great time, the cocktails were delicious, the raw bar awesome. Our entrees were cooked perfectly and the portions were plenty. Great service and a unique atmosphere in the oldest house on the block that some say is haunted! We would definitely go back.

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.

Seaworthy was out of nearly everything! Even down to alcohol. Seems as though they could at least restock their beer for a new day. The food we did get was great, but wish we had the opportunity for a full menu.

Food was great. We have reservations for 5 so they unfortunately set us in the bar. We had one service who was responsible for about 5 tables, so service as very lacking. Fortunately the DRINKS were good. Would go back but request to not sit in bar with a larger group

Everything was amazing. From the beginning to the end! Couldn’t have asked for a better place for brunch. Our server Jamie, was the sweetest and very knowledgeable about their menu items. The Chilaquiles with catfish where so bomb, my friend has the rice bowl which was to die for!

We sat, almost completely unattended, for more than two hours. The food was oily and unseasoned, the waiter was disrespectful and disregarded us. The drinks were good though, and I’m glad they donated part of our evening to a good cause. I will be sure to not shy away from telling my fellow food industry friends about my poor experience. I understand the industry as I work on the managerial team of a restaurant group. This was poor service and poor quality food at its finest. A true waste of $200. Save the gulf regardless.

Raw bar selection was excellent. The menu is innovative and interesting. We had oysters, anchovy toast among other tasty treats. I highly recommend the anchovy toast if you like anchovies. We sat at the counter and the server was very attentive and knowledgeable.

Best seafood I have had in a long time! Peche used to be my favorite place to go for this type of food, but these guys knocked it out of the park. I will definitely be coming back in the future.

I visited Seaworthy on a Saturday night and the noise level almost deafening. However the menu was very creative and the food was delicious and prepared very well. The building is lovely, very old New Orleans vibe, but a bit cramped inside. Would definitely recommend.

From the large selection of oysters to the hamburger, everything was delicious. We ordered a number of different items on the menu for our table of 4 to share. Everyone enjoyed every bite.
I would’ve preferred traditional saltines with my oysters rather than the fancier type they offered, but that’s certainly not a deal breaker.

Three scallops and some chips was the entire meal. The chips were hard and cold. The restaurant was very loud and dark. I’ve never eaten a meal and left a restaurant so quickly. I’ve got family planning to visit New Orleans, this is one of the restaurants I’ll tell them to avoid. Not worth the money because I still had to go out to get something else to eat.

The food was amazing. A culinary treat with hints of Asian influence and creole accents. Ask for Cory. He was fantastic and passionate about the menu. The Swordfish was perfect and moist. The Wagyu Burger stole the show—delicious.
