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.

Amazing food. But it took two hours to eat. Drinks barely came and some were forgotten. Not the best experience after proposing to your girlfriend lol
The waiter was really nice but didn’t know much about the food and wine. The seafood tower at $72 was ok but only the raw things were really good. The rest of our meal didn’t arrive for more than 30 minutes. When we told him to forget it and just bring the bill he said the food was ready and brought it. The little gems was swimming in dressing and a side of bread consisted of one thin slice. The free bread was a basket of chip like bread that tasted burnt.
When we arrived for our reservation we were seated in backless chairs in the bar. Only when we asked to be moved did we get a proper table upstairs.
We had brunch on Saturday . The food was fantastic . Bbq shrimp plate a must .
The food was excellent and I would have highly recommended, but the service was horrendous and on Valentine's Day, that is completely unacceptable.
I had made our Valentine's Dinner reservations well in advance and we planned to arrive early for a pre-dinner cocktail at the bar. Upon arrival, we checked in with the host and headed to the bar. Shortly after our reservation time, I received a call from the restaurant asking if we were going to keep our reservation. I informed the young lady that we were, in fact, already at the bar. She asked if we would like to remain at the bar and I informed her that we did not wish to remain at the bar. She didn't inquire further and ended the call. After 10 or so minutes passed, I got up to check with the host, who said we would need to close out our tab at the bar before being seated (not sure why nobody ever told us we were ready to be seated, good thing I followed up). I went back to the bar, closed out the tab, and walked back to the host stand. We were then seated IN THE BAR. If I wanted to be seated in the bar, I wouldn't have bothered to make a reservation and would have just walked in and sat at the bar. I will not be making a reservation here again, but will return for food and drinks.
Menu was limited. Food service was slow. Burger was served way undercooked. Won’t be back.
Most delicious made in-house crackers
The service and food were great. Had a great time hanging out at the bar.
The service was great, food was delicious. The oysters were a bit pricey, but delicious as well.
Service was slow and had catch the waiter 3 times in order to get service. I waited over ten minutes to get my second beer and went to the bar instead. I think that there only 3 tables being served
Very cool, authentic restaurant! Food is delicious, but very small portions. Recommend trying a bunch of different entrees and sharing with the table. Everything we had was delicious!
Togarashi shrimp were some of the best shrimp I've ever had. Cory, our server, was incredible. Great restaurant - highly recommended.
Our apps were good, oysters tasty. Tiny martini but common in Nola. Entree scallops interesting; large but only 3...I would have expected at least 4 or 5 for the price. My companion’s swordfish was also small. Service sporadic. Sat waiting for awhile before we’re noticed. Didn’t come back to offer additional drinks or water till I flagged him down. I would like to return and try the PoBoy...our neighbors were enjoying it. I think you need to “know” what to order
We were really looking forward to our dinner at Seaworthy, but were sadly disappointed. The restaurant was quite chilly with cold air blowing from a vent. It took a LONG time first to order our drinks, and then longer for them to be delivered. I was hoping for some great seafood options, but thought the menu was pretty uninspiring - or an inspired option was quite expensive. We were hoping for more "to share" options so we could try a variety of things but in the end I went with a shrimp po-boy....that came with cold shrimp. We'd ordered a starter of oysters, but they hadn't appeared when the waitress brought our dinners, along with the news that it would be a while longer for the oysters since the shucker was backed up. I just wish she'd updated us earlier about that. We finished eating, and sat for a while, and were about to ask for our check and to forget the oysters when they arrived at the table....seriously?? The waitress joked they were for dessert but honestly it was a disappointing end to a disappointing meal.
The oysters were incredible! Everything was really great, but the shrimp roll was outstanding. GREAT food, GREAT drinks!
The drinks were extremely over priced. The waitress was rude. We are locals and will certainly not be going back!
Peche Seafood Grill is the seafood restaurant with the big tourist following in New Orleans. But ask "locals" where to go, and many - certainly this one! - will tell you go to Seaworthy instead! Great food, great service, a terrific "happy hour", nice selection of fresh raw oysters and good value are all in plentiful supply at Seaworthy. If you want to sit at the bar, or be in the midst of a lot of commotion, than ask to sit downstairs. But if you're looking for a spot more intimate, a bit quieter, ask to sit upstairs. I've been coming to this spot for years and am never disappointed. My only observation is that sometimes I wish they had just a few more things on the menu: a gumbo, a nice piece of simply broiled fish would be great staples. But be assured that whatever they do have will not disappoint. My last meal there was Seaworthy's take on the classic seafood bouillabaisse. It was off the charts - it was that good! Probably my favorite ever.
A hidden gem! Impressive oyster menu (fresh and delicious) along with small plates and entrees. Something for everyone. Cozy bar downstairs, cozy dining upstairs and a large patio out back. The Brussels sprouts were so good I wanted to lick the bowl-then our server told us exactly how to make them!
Oysters were amazing! Waitress was so kind! Hostess was not very welcoming. Tables could be a bit bigger.
Love the food and space but unless you have the wall side of a banquet, the stools with no back or arms are very uncomfortable. That's the only reason we don't go more often.
This is a seafood restaurant for seafood lovers. The menu is limited but the appetizers and food is good. We had the trio of ceviche, brussel sprouts, fish sandwich and swordfish among our table of four. The swordfish was the best of what we had. The ceviche needed some more flavor.
Food was delicious. Wine list and cocktails were great as well
Not enough variety in seafood choices. Swordfish is not from the area.
Great service! Actually exceptional service - chill environment - great food. We will be back!
Absolutely LOVED everything about seaworthy! The atmosphere was quaint and inviting, the drinks AMAZING and the oysters were fabulous! Definitely check them out at happy hour for some great deals! I want to go back!!
Wonderful! So glad we found this spot on our last night in town - everything was delicious but beet salad and hush puppies were truly amazing!
Love this restaurant. Really was surprised by the decibel level this past visit. I was hoarse after the meal from trying to speak with my dinner guest. Unfortunate.
Our waiter, Corey, was great. Very knowledgeable about the different oyster selections. Enjoyable dinner, but a bit loud where we sat by the bar.
The ambiance in this place is off the charts. It's a really good cozy spot for a quintessential New Orleans bar experience, with very good seafood at affordable prices. Highly recommended.
Our last night in NOLA this trip. We enjoyed Seaworthy’s selection of fresh oysters and seafood so much earlier this week, that we chose it again. Janice ordered a restaurant special, Phillips Head and l my usual Sazerac. Friday night is a bit louder of course, and the crowd of locals and visitors trends to a younger set out on the town. Nice to see a lot of diners dressed a little less casually and getting in a bit of social time. A really nice dining experience. We wanted to eat lighter as we were traveling the next day. Janice chose the traditional ceviche (they have three choices) and l the Bouillabaisse. We enjoyed both dishes and finished our meal with their Key Lime( lighter version than many others). Excellent food and service provided by Josiah all evening. Definitely a “must-do” on our next visit to New Orleans.
Great happy hour
Grrat food and nice ambiance. Wonderful New Year's celebration.
We were a table of 2. The seating was horrible. Those that like to sit comfortably then this is not the place. One seat was a bench with back and the other was a stool that was low & uncomfortable. We had tables on each side of us that were 4 tops in with we could both at least sit on the bench with seat backs. When I asked to move to a table beside us that we could both at least sit on the bench seats side by side, we were told no as they were reserved. Coincidence or not Seaworthy sat 2 tops at each of these tables. They did nothing to accommodate as the seating was horrible on my back. The loudness was due to a speaker right above our seats that was blaringly loud. I wouldn't go back.
Wanted to try a new spot on this trip to the “big easy.” We were intrigued by the menu and its location near to our hotel. We hadn’t spent many evenings in the warehouse and lower garden districts, so thought we’d give it a try. What a pleasant venue! Arrived by taxi for our 6:45 reservation and sat at the raw bar for a few minutes. Bartender Sean stopped to take our drink order. I told him l had heard they offered an excellent Sazerac. He smiled and assured me that it would be the best l’ve ever tried. Janice ordered an amaretto sour which was quite good by the way,and l got the Sazerac. Sean was certainly accurate! My cocktail was delicious; among the very best l’ve had in New Orleans. We moved to a high table in the front window, so the street traffic was an entertaining backdrop for our evening. The restaurant is in a classic style New Orleans building near the Ace Hotel. Old woodwork, exposed brick walls and stucco-like surfaces set the ambiance. The raw bar features a dozen or so oysters from Canada to Mexico and Pacific to Atlantic. Selection varies with availability. In the mood for seafood, we ordered the seafood tower. It came with a dozen oysters (4 varieties), chilled shrimp, blue crab claws, and cheviche. Absolutely hit the spot! After polishing off the tower, we split the frozen chocolate gelato accompanied with freshly brewed coffee. Jaimie made sure we were well taken care of, and we never lacked for anything. The Seaworthy is a busy place and a little tight on space, but a really iconic raw bar style destination. Don’t know when we have enjoyed a light early dinner more. We also discovered a quiet open air patio in the back with heaters and courtyard appropriate tables. We Will probably request seating on the patio on our next visit if the weather permits. As you can tell, we have added another “favorite” to our dining options in NOLA.
GREAT meal...had the brussel sprouts and the scallops, washed it down with a mule that was out of this world. Portions are moderate, so sharing doesn’t work but each entree is a good light meal. I will return!
The food was pretty salty for our taste
Second time here and it did not disappoint! Delicious seafood and surprises like pork belly done right. Staff and customer service is superb.
Waiters and waitresses are very friendly and nice.
Food was awesome but for us each course was a bit little thus we gotta order more.
Oysters are diverse and absolutely great.
Highly recommend to everyone.
Nice casual dinner with friends. Food was very good. The ambience is nice. Good choice for seafood.
Delicious oysters. Sat at bar to order drink since we were early for dinner. Lots of hustle bustle, but little engaging with employees to customers. The hostess and the oyster shucker were the friendliest workers.
Service was minimal, especially for the price. Drinks more than most restaurants.
Would return for happy hour oysters.
We arrived less than 10 minutes early for our 7:30 dinner reservation. The hostess was rude and unfriendly, and said with a tone that she would seat us closer to our reservation time. She told us to wait in the tight bar where she had to know there were no stools available, and we were not allowed to sit at the multiple empty tables in the bar space. A few minutes later she sat us at one of the bar tables, despite our request to be seated in the dining room. There were empty tables in dining room through our entire meal, and our reservation was made about a month in advance. We watched her treat other guests in a similar manner. More than one group just left. There are a lot of dining options with great food, atmosphere, and service in New Orleans, and we will not be returning.
