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
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...

Everything was lovely and beyond happy to have dinner with a friend after their reopening!!! Do yourself a favor and book a table.
Thank you for the kind words and the great review! We are so excited to be back open! We cant wait to have you again!
👌🏼 place for dinner, and they sent an amazing chocolate dessert and shots to the table to help celebrate a birthday! Ryan and Sean were fun and attentive, oysters were on point, cocktails were perfect.

We think you’re great too! Thanks for the kind words. A Votre Santé!
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.
Thank you for the feedback. We want to make sure everyone is comfortable and socially distant at Seaworthy, and we have designed the layout of the dining spaces to be so. This is very serious to us. If you'd like to send a more detailed message regarding your experience, please email enquire@seaworthynola. Ill be sure to investigate. Thank you again and we hope to see you again soon.
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.
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?
Seaworthy is a quaint little restaurant with a great ambiance. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The food was absolutely delicious. The cocktail list is awesome. We ordered the amberjack hush puppies, marinated blue crab claws, and fish of the day (redfish). All three were AMAZING! I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to dine in NOLA!
We had three appetizers the blue crab claws were not terribly flavorful, the beet salad was incredible and my rock fish with red sauce was delicious. Pretty small portions but great flavor.
Took a minute to get bartenders attention, other than that everything was great.
One of my favorites in New Orleans. Great staff!
Sorry, food was sub-par and noise level was not conducive to conversation. Would not recommend.
Host BRYANT was super. Our server Josiah was very attentive. All bussers were very excellent!
We had a 6:30 reservation and were sat at a small table by the bar in a high traffic area. I moved my chair to not get bumped every time someone walked by. Fine. We don't mind as we usually opt to sit at the bar. Another couple sat next to us and were very uncomfortable with the table. It was too loud for them and they left. The waiter came for our order and I could not hear him. They did turn down the music. We asked for 2 orders of ceviche. The mahi-mahi was mushy from being marinated too long and the amount wouldn't fill a tablespoon. The yellow tail was paper thin and barely there. We ordered the special fish of the day and they had run out. I remarked to the waiter that it was only 6:30 and they were out? That didn't go well. Funny the music volume went up after that along with his attitude. The pinot noir wine selection was not impressive to say the least. So we paid up and left hungry. This place is very trendy and expensive.
Our dinner at Seaworthy was a joy. The service was wonderful throughout, everyone was friendly and our waitress was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. The ambiance is great, worth walking around to see all the cool decor. The main oyster/drink bar downstairs has a lot of seats, and a good place for a cocktail before the meal. With all the different rooms and nooks and crannies, it felt almost like our group of seven had our own private dining room, though there were other tables just around the corner. As you'd expect by the name, the menu is seafood heavy, but with a lot of different influences and variety in the preparation, with many dishes very sharable for a group. We shared the ceviche, hushpuppies, and beets and nothing lasted long. I had the clams for my entree and loved they. They are served like mussels in a large bowl with delicious broth with bread on the side, a way I had never had them before. For drinks I had the Punch and the 24 Karat and both were among the best cocktails I'd had. I will not miss Seaworthy next time I'm in the city, and recommend it highly, especially if you're looking for a menu that has local flare and ingredients but is a bit different.
Too expensive for the small amount of food provided.
Seaworthy used to be a place to go for a higher end dinner, and was one of our favorite spots. The last two times we have been there we realized that things have changed. The menu is more bar food type item (for example they replaced the steak with a hamburger). We ordered the hamburger and it was obvious it had been Pre-cooked - and was just warmed up - medium rare was ordered and it came more than well done with the middle being cold. Other items took forever to come out and were not well prepared. It’s a shame because we used to really like to come here. I’m hopeful they can get it together - but sad to say we will not be back.
Very accommodating. Great service and excellent food! Will recommend this place to everyone
