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.

*Please be advised: in accordance with current City of New Orleans health restrictions, anyone 12 years of age and older must provide proof of at least one dose of an approved COVID vaccine or negative PCR test within 72 hours to enter any indoor dining establishment.

My husband and I have loved Seaworthy for over 4 years. Unfortunately, they recently changed the menu, so all of the main dishes now contain a lobster broth. I’m allergic to shellfish. The oysters (which are bivalves and I can eat) are great but they don’t make a meal. Hopefully, they make more options available since shellfish allergy is a pretty common.

Worthy. Great small place with lots of oyster choices and delicious and creative seafood entrees. Friendly and attentive staff. We try to get here at least once every time we visit Nola.

The service here was the worst I’ve ever received in New Orleans. It took a long time to be greeted at our table. Our drinks were empty for the majority of the meal and our waiter forgot an appetizer and an entree. The lighting was so low that it was hard to read the menu. The food was fine but I do not think I will return to this restaurant.

We really wanted to like this place but…
We sat outside on their back patio which looked lovely but it was closed in and had no fresh air circulating. There was a consistent smell of bleach coming from the kitchen area. The food was either too seasoned or had too little seasoning. The wait staff were friendly.

We were sat in the ally / patio which was very nice but had no music at all and was pretty dark. We all felt tired after dinner - if you are looking for a sleepy dinner then it’s perfect but we chose this restaurant for it’s aesthetic and perceived vibe and it didn’t hit the mark for us.

Love this place so very much. We’ve been spoiled every time we go in. I would recommend reservations ahead of time cause they can fill up fast. Happy Hour is terrific deal.
The staff is beyond gracious, so patient & thoughtful.

We love dining outside in the courtyard at Seaworthy! Relaxing and fun setting. We started with the Cobia and the Crab Dip which were both great. Gulf fish had delicious crispy skin. Scallops were excellent with sweet potato grits. Fun cocktails too!

Located just a few doors down from our hotel, we stopped in for a late dinner. Amazing dinner service -we loved the oysters and redfish. Will definitely come back for the spicy mezcal cocktail on my next visit!

This is quickly becoming my NOLA favorite. Great raw oysters. Seafood gumbo may not have been the best ever but it was certainly very good & full of seafood & sausage, very satisfying. I had blackened scallops for my entree, & they were outstanding with just the right size portion. If you are a Bourbon fan, get the McKittrick Old Fashioned.

The place is comfortable & has a cool vibe & ambience. Although I was alone, it would be a great place for a date or even a double date. Service was excellent too. This was my second visit & certainly not my last.

Not worth the price. Oysters were smelly and seemed like they had just been thawed. The catfish sandwich had no flavor and minimal tartar sauce. The credit card machine was also down so had to leave information which was an inconvenience. Overall would not go back.

All oysters were great but 100% recommend The murder Point oysters! The mussels were yummy with the avocado sauce- not too filling, perfect if looking for a light meal. The shrimp Po Boy was great too but more of a filling meal.

I give the restaurant 2 stars because the employees were extremely nice and the ambience was lovely. The food was far below average and quite disgusting. I ordered the mussels entree which arrived in a very unpleasant muddy green water that tasted equally as bad as it looked. I also ordered the seafood pasta which couldn't have been more than noodles and a few shrimp covered in canned unseasoned tomato sauce. The servings were also quite small for the high prices. I would not recommend this restaurant due to the poor-tasting food.
