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.

Great food!

Waiter was friendly but not very engaging. Not until prompted, did she review the menu or specials with us. We did not receive napkins or utensils until after the first appetizer was placed on the table - which we had to ask for.
Although the food was served hot and expeditiously, items were continuously add to the table without empty plates being cleared until asked.

Aside from the standard hospitable gestures listed above - my experience was great! I would highly recommend this restaurant! Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious and bursting with flavor. The Pork Belly and French Fries (yes fries! 🤤 ) are a MUST try.

Everyone was kind and gracious. I will certainly be back!

The menu listed on Open Table did not reflect their current menu, so it’s best to call or visit their website. Also, some menu selections were not available like the Chargrilled Oysters and their restaurant is listed as an “oyster bar”!!

Would have given a 5 star review, but we sensed some staffing issues, and had inordinately long wait times for our beverages from the bar, and for our dessert. Food was excellent, and the staff were friendly and polite. Seaworthy was able to accommodate our family member in a power wheelchair nicely. I will try this restaurant again.

The service and food was not good at all for the amount of money spent on the meal. It was my husbands birthday so we thought we would try a new place. My guess were not too pleased with the restaurant and we will not be dining there again.

HORRIBLE

My fiancé and I went here and were honestly SO disappointed! We had booked a crawfish boil experience online and then got there and they weren’t serving it, so instead ordered a shrimp boil… when it came out we were shocked! It was dry - and unlike anything I’ve ever seen!

Check out Boil Room, it was SO much better!

The interior and patio are beautiful.

Food was pricey for what it was. The oysters were great, highly recommend doing the bakers dozen to try all of them out.


Advice: make a reservation always.

Kitchen had some emergency so only cold items. Would have been nice to have had a heads up. Chilled Shrimp were very small. Never seen suck small shrimp in a shrimp cocktail. Oysters were good but fully priced at $3.50-$4 each. Not sure I’m coming back.

When its 90+ outside, you don’t seat guests in an alley (aka breezeway) with no airflow. Made the rest of the experience awful to sweat while eating and we didn’t request outdoors. Also found expensive for the quantity/quality.

Overall a decent restaurant. Food was quality fine dining. The seating and set up could be better. Inside was very cold and the tables were very small. Service was good. Would go on a date. Little pricey. Could be a lot better with better seating and furniture upgrade.

Our waitress sat us and when we asked how she was doing, she immediately told us “how busy she was.” She proceeded to provide the worst service we’ve had in New Orleans our entire trip. Preoccupied, subbed oysters on our tray that we did t approve of (nor did she ask about the substitution) we were overcharged, etc. If it weren’t for the loveliest lady collecting our tray after, who engaged us in a great discussion about the Saints, we would likely never return. Such a shame. Oysters were great but who cares if the service is so bad!

At 62 years of age this was the worst service I have ever received. We got to the restaurant after making the reservation on a recommendation from a friend. We were seated by ourselves in a room that looked like an overflow room at a Shoneys. It got worse. The waiter was terrible. We ordered Oysters and a crab dish for an appetizer. The Oysters were good but we never got the crab dish. After we finished the Oysters we waited 15 minutes and I had had enough and removed the two plates of empty shells myself. The waiter finally came and I told him to please cancel the crab dish and he just said "I'll take it of the bill". Never apologized. Lobster Rolls were good as were the Crab Rolls. We never were offered coffee or desert just the check. I'm still mad I left the waiter $40.00 on a $220.00 bill. It's the first time I can remember leaving less that 20%. This is also the first time I've ever written a review of a restaurant. Next time I'll eat at a Lucky Dog stand before this place. I think I'd be treated better.

Really enjoyed this place. Was ready to get out of the French Quarter for a night and this fit the bill. The Hostess was sweet and very accommodating. Same with our server. Oysters were fresh and delicious. Shrimp Po Boy was great as was everything else we tried (which was a large portion of the menu). Cocktails good too.
