Couldn’t be more perfect-
Great oysters, service, and food.
We went there for the happy hour. It was very limited - 2 drinks and 1 oyster (maybe it was two). Bakers dozen was 27 and enjoyable. Great place for couples!
The oysters were great. That was our favorite part. The service was just ok. A girlfriend and I went to dinner and we felt very rushed. I had been to Seaworthy twice before and it was a lovely experience previously but we felt like the server wanted us in & out much too quickly. Also, when we arrived they had "bumped" our reservation to a high-top table inside at the bar and that's not what we had in mind at all. Luckily the host was able to fix it but how can you just "bump" (that was the word he used) someone from outside to inside like that? Especially with a pandemic going on? The food other than the oysters was just ok. The drinks were just ok too.
Everything was stellar about this evening. Food, waiter, ambiance. I love this restaurant.
Tiki style drinks, thoughtful oyster (& raw bar) offerings and attention to nautical detail make this a stop worth making. We ate on the patio (which was perfect and social-distancing friendly) and had oysters, crab dip, and 3 of the chilled/cured offerings. The Cobia tiradito was the stand out star. We will definitely be back!
PS- staff took temp check at door, wore masks and respected COVID distancing guidelines.
It was cool
We were brought glasses of wine to celebrate our anniversary! The food was even better than we expected! The fried shrimp, little gem salad and wagyu beef burger were amazing. The cocktails were great as well.
Service and food was excellent as usual! Thanks, Phillip : )
phillip was a solid server who knew his menu. would recommend
My husband and I had dinner at Seaworthy during our honeymoon in New Orleans. We each had a cocktail - he had the Strange Bird and I had the Holy Water (I didn't pay the extra $5 to keep the glass, but I almost wish I had). They were expertly made and presented. Our server, Nick, was extremely helpful, warm, and kind. My husband ordered the Louisiana rock shrimp roll and I had the burger, and both were cooked exactly to order and were extremely good. We loved the space, the decor, and everything about Seaworthy. We will most certainly be back on our next trip to Nola.
Great food, great oysters, fun cocktails. Felt comfortable with table spacing for covid safety protocol compliance.
Great food great service
Everything. The pork belly, Cobia, and Tuna Poke were awesome. It was our first experience with raw oysters and I would definitely recommend
Initially we looked at the menu and was thinking about leaving. We were the first group seated. We we received our food it was awesome. Terrific service. Menu limited; however, it’s probably due to covid to decrease waste. We would definately return. Swordfish was teriffic!
Seaworthy is a gem. The food, service, atmosphere are all sublime.
I loved all of the dishes and sitting outside was perfect!
Great happy hour choices! Enjoyed as usual!
What is lacking in overall value and flavor, is made up for with ambiance. We ordered:
Raw Oysters- obviously they tasted as expected, which for me is wonderful
Shrimp Roll- I didn’t care for it- it was loaded with celery which I like, but honestly the flavor was not great. The bread was the best part. It was $18, so not a good value for something you really couldn’t eat.
Mussels- Were good and really the best thing ordered.
Fried Shrimp- Good, tastes as expected
Cocktails- Great flavor, but were literally 3 sips for $10-15 each
Like I said, the ambiance is really the best part of the place and it’s nice if you want to catch up with friends. Our bill was $180ish for 3 people so kinda pricey, but again we had 2 cocktails and a bottle of wine.
Overall, the food was delicious and the service was great. It was a little noisy, but that's probably just because it's an older building. It didn't impact the experience overall.
I love this place but I am looking forward to being able to sit at the oyster bar again. The table service was a little lacking.
Can’t wait to come back and sit on the patio once it’s back open!
You can never go wrong with the raw oysters! Great happy hour for them too!
Thanks for the kind words! We appreciate you taking the time to share them! Hope to see you again soon!
The Oysters! They were out out of the Murder Pointe oysters😞, but the East Coast and West Coast selections made up for it!
The Crabmeat Dip was delectable, and who would have known that basic fried shrimp wasn't so basic after all!
I recommend this place to any seafood lover.
Good thing they were out of my favorite oysters, now I have a reason to go back!
Thank you for the kind words! We cant wait to have you back!
Natalie was amazing...

Very good. Oysters delicious but expensive.
Short rib overdone but tasty
They sat a couple right next to us which ultimately made us really uncomfortable. Other than an overcooked burger, the food was phenomenal as always.

Amazing like always
Very interesting and cool vibe. I used a $60 OpenTable Mastercard voucher to explore this hidden gem. I'm not a fan of the crab claws but we enjoyed the pork belly. We had reservations for outside (which looks amazing) but it was a lil hot so we ate by the window inside next to the bar. Our server could have smiled but she was pleasant.
