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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

HORRIBLE. A waitress named Norma told me to “calm down” when i was telling her which food was mine after she confused it multiple times. She told the manager i cursed at her which is absurd. We spoke to the manager and all he could say was that “they are really close, like a family”. The staff was throwing trash away right behind our table (extremely close) while we were eating which was unpleasant. I asked to talk to the manager again. Once he came over he accused us of harassing the waitress and wouldn’t apologize or own up to the mistakes they had made. Then the manager told us he was dropping the check and to call it a night. Once we got up he handed me the check and said “what are you doing, im dropping off the check, its basic terminology”.

Advertised patio service but had none. No bloody Mary’s because juice guy was out! I guess no one else is capable of doing that even though there were very few patrons and a full on bartender. This was Saturday brunch. Short staff should not mean short on service. Disappointing. Wondering if the dishwasher is out should I expect a lack of clean dishes?
