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.

First time diners and we will return. Had the warm crab dip - amazing, the fried shrimp , scallops, mussels, and bakers dozen oysters all excellent for starters and had the crawfish roll, oyster PO boy and fish sandwich which were all enjoyable
Drinks were also well prepared and our server very good
Only drawback was the noise level

There isn’t enough that I can say about this beautiful space. The selection of gulf oysters that I ordered was some of the best that I’ve ever had. While the food and ambience was no doubt a pleasure to experience, The staff here was truly incredible and attentive making this a really enjoyable dining experience. The stand out star was for sure Courtney. So energetic and attentive without being overwhelming, and really very very kind. Seaworthy is a 10 out of 10 for me

More like Seaworthless! I have never had a bad meal let alone a bad oyster in NOLA until now. Very underwhelming and disappointing. Poor selection of oysters and they were not fresh, more like fishy and mildewed. The salad was confused Asian or?
Save your money and stay home or better get yet go around the corner where the oysters are fresh.

There were three reasons we chose to dine with you.
One of them was that you were open until 11, we had just flown in and asked for 10 PM reservations. We arrived at 9:30, and were told that they were no tables available we went down the street for a drink came back at 10. On the way to the table the hostess tells us that they will be closing soon and that we had to put our order in.
Upon sitting down the server told us the same thing.
We ordered a dozen oysters and the shrimp.
We’re where eating our second oysters, and the shrimp came out.
You were out of the muscles as many other things on the menu.
We asked for the check, and noticed that on your website they are listed as $18 a dozen we were charged $24..
Please revise your website, with the correct prices and the correct closing time.
Very disappointing.

As we live in the area, Seaworthy is one of our favorite spots for Happy Hour. Our waiter Peter and back up waiter Logan are both excellent representatives of Southern hospitality. My wife enjoyed a sampling of the raw oysters, among the most diverse in the City. The Canadian selection last night were on point with the perfect balance of brine and texture. I cannot help but get the hot crab dip, that along with Crystal hot sauce make a perfect combination. Logan recommended the pea salad, which was a perfect balance of fresh spring green ingredients with a light vinaigrette. Over the years, the the new manager has this place performing among the best in the City. Request an outdoor table before it gets too hot, they are so relaxing.

Wife and I dined here for the 1st time, and enjoyed the food, despite somewhat sketchy service. I ordered 1/2 dozen oysters on the half shell, but only received 4. I pointed this out and did receive 2 more a few minutes later, but our waiter never once acknowledged the mistake nor did he apologize. My Wife throughly enjoyed her scallops, and my fried gulf shrimp were superb. Finishing touch of chocolate fudge brownie ala mode was divine.

My husband and I just moved to New Orleans and made reservations for Seaworthy’s crawfish boil, Easter Sunday. The weather was gorgeous so we sat on the outside, side patio. The ambiance of the patio was beautiful. We both ordered a drink from the cocktail list and enjoyed our selection. Due to some dietary restrictions, I requested another drink... but needed something a bit less sugary than my first. Our waiter listened to my request intently and the bartender did an amazing job, coming up with the light, refreshing, low sugar cocktail I had in mind.
The crawfish boil was delicious and perfectly seasoned. Not too spicy (which we also like, but not so early in the day) but very flavorful.
Finally, I have to give a shout out to our server, Nick. He was pleasant, quick witted, very helpful and gave us excellent service. We felt Nick went out of his way to make us comfortable and feel at home.
He also gave us suggestions regarding the regular menu as we definitely will be back! Thank you for a wonderful experience, our first holiday, in our new home.

The food, drinks, and atmosphere were excellent. Unfortunately the wait staff seemed quite tired on a Sunday night. We had a reservation and were not even seated until 10-15 mins later. the entire night dragged on as the host, waiter, and all staff seemed to ignore us. we were constantly waiting on them. we got there at 8:15 and did not receive our appetizer of oysters until 9:15. not sure if i would recommend it to a friend.

Although our server was very nice, he wasn’t very knowledgeable of the menu and certain selections. He was very friendly but not timely with taking our drink and food orders.
Being a seafood restaurant in New Orleans, there should have been a more vast seafood selection.
$3 per oyster is at least 3x market price.

Overall, restaurant was nice but menu, service and some prices could be tweaked.

Obviously going for the hip, we have good food and could care less if you eat it vibe, we won’t return. In order, rude greeting and no help with a pre dinner drink while waiting for table, or even a mention of the bar 8 doors down. Drafty table, forgot items repeatedly, zero staging and all courses arrives at once, waiter more interested in woman behind bar that costumer, soup and no spoon, etc etc. Food is fine, even good, every other aspect is a mess!
