Super cute and tendy. Amazing fresh seafood. Menu was a little confusing- but our server was great and spelled it out for us. We had the trio appetizer- tuna, shrimp and cobia. Cobia was not great. But the others were amazing! I did the lobster roll - best I ever had and I lived in the Hamptons for 10 years. My husband has the shrimp roll. Such a great night and I would totally recommend. Oh and explore the restaurant- it is decorated to a T
We had a wonderful first meal in New Orleans at Seaworthy. The food was fantastic and the service is superb. Thank you!
The crab dip was good. I wouldn’t know how anything else tasted because our server didn’t serve us.
We really enjoyed our meal here. Crap dip was AMAZING! Atmosphere was pretty and quiet.
We are so happy that you enjoyed your meal with us. We look forward to seeing you again!!
Great experience. Very fresh oysters, great cocktails, and amazing staff. Cornelius and Natalie took great care of us. Will certainly return and recommend to friends.

So glad to hear that you loved your meal. They oysters are great, aren't they! Hope to see you again soon!
Great, very friendly, good food.
Your comments spark joy. Thanks so much. Hope to see you again soon!
Nice meal in the breezeway. Loved all the plants. Great service.
Thank you for taking the time to let us know! The Breezeway is our new fav space for Seaworthy dining. Hope to see you again soon!
Delicious oysters from around the country followed by a seafood forward and tasty meal.
Dark and cozy, gorgeous historic venue for a date or intimate group of friends. Don’t tell yourself you don’t need bread. You do need bread.
Just ok! Long wait times and overpriced. Inconsistent drinks, but delicious tuna poke and burger.
Love love love! Great food & relaxing dark ambiance! Drinks were delicious!
We love love love you too! We try to keep it a moody vibe at Seaworthy. Appreciate the 5-star review! Hope to see you again soon!
Fantastic place with cool vibe & decor. I had my eye on it for a while & finally was in town on just the right day to give it a go...I was not disappointed. Service was excellent & the noise level was reasonably low so that conversation could occur with raising one’s voice. The food was outstanding, of course.
Check out their menu & give it a go.
Thank you Michael for coming in, and I'm happy that the timing worked out for you. Please come back and see us the next time that you are in town :)
Once again we had a wonderful time at Seaworthy. It was our anniversary and multiple staff members congratulated us. The service and food were wonderful. The ambiance is amazing. They even gave us a free dessert to celebrate. Love this place!
Thanks Roxanne. We love that you decided to spend such a special evening with us. Once again congratulations and we can't wait to see you next time.
Such a nice experience. Dinner in the garden during COVID. Food was delicious. Great service. Would highly recommend.
Hi Karen, we're pleased that you enjoyed your dinner with us and I have shared your feedback with our team. We are doing all that we can to make everyone feel comfortable dining out during these times. We hope to see you again soon!
Service is always great and the atmosphere local and pleasant
Great atmosphere—it was chilly we sat outside with the heaters and were comfortable. Bakers dozen oysters great experience. The Holy Water cocktail arrived flaming it was so amazing!! Chefs special fish was very good. Wait staff attentive but laid back and informative at the same time. Loved this place!!!!!!
Amazing cocktails, oysters, service
Everything was great. Will be back.
So glad my husband and I decided to book Seaworthy for an evening out. We were seated in the bar during their happy hour, which had a nice intimate feel to it. All the staff was very attentive, even though they seemed busy, and were fun the talk to throughout our dining. The oysters were top notch, also. We enjoyed 2 rounds of the happy hour baker's dozen plus an extra half dozen of their wild gulf oysters. We'll definitely be dining here again before our holiday vacation ends.
Our server Nick was excellent and it was a great experience overall
Great service and excellent food. I would recommend visiting for happy hour
The worst experience we’ve all ever encountered. Rude, mean, host who was very discriminatory and staff members even openly laughed at and mocked our friend who has a disability and was actually the guest of honor for the evening, to the point where she cried outside of the restaurant. Absolutely disgusting behavior by staff and none of us will ever return to this establishment, which is heartbreaking because it has been our favorite for so long. The staff member greeting guests that evening should not be employed with this company, or this certainly won’t be the last review if it’s kind for this establishment.
We would like the opportunity to investigate your feedback further. Please, could you contact me at philip.columbo@acehotel or call our team at (504) 930-3071. We’ll work with you to resolve any issues as quickly as possible.
Seaworthy is always delicious and a great time
Blushing! Thank you for taking the time to let us know.
Great food great service
Your comments spark joy. Thanks so much.
Couldn’t be more perfect-
We think you’re great too! Thanks for the kind words.
Great oysters, service, and food.
We appreciate you taking the time to give us a shout out. Hope to see you again soon!
We went there for the happy hour. It was very limited - 2 drinks and 1 oyster (maybe it was two). Bakers dozen was 27 and enjoyable. Great place for couples!
The oysters were great. That was our favorite part. The service was just ok. A girlfriend and I went to dinner and we felt very rushed. I had been to Seaworthy twice before and it was a lovely experience previously but we felt like the server wanted us in & out much too quickly. Also, when we arrived they had "bumped" our reservation to a high-top table inside at the bar and that's not what we had in mind at all. Luckily the host was able to fix it but how can you just "bump" (that was the word he used) someone from outside to inside like that? Especially with a pandemic going on? The food other than the oysters was just ok. The drinks were just ok too.
I’m so sorry. We’re normally known for our exceptional attention to detail, and we regret that we missed the mark
Everything was stellar about this evening. Food, waiter, ambiance. I love this restaurant.
Thank you for the wonderful comments on both food and service. We take great pride in both, and we appreciate you taking the time to recognize it.
Tiki style drinks, thoughtful oyster (& raw bar) offerings and attention to nautical detail make this a stop worth making. We ate on the patio (which was perfect and social-distancing friendly) and had oysters, crab dip, and 3 of the chilled/cured offerings. The Cobia tiradito was the stand out star. We will definitely be back!
PS- staff took temp check at door, wore masks and respected COVID distancing guidelines.
I appreciate you taking the time to comment! We hope to see you again soon!
It was cool
We were brought glasses of wine to celebrate our anniversary! The food was even better than we expected! The fried shrimp, little gem salad and wagyu beef burger were amazing. The cocktails were great as well.
We know there are plenty of restaurants to choose from in New Orleans, and we are honored that you chose to dine with us. I will be sure to pass the kind words to the service and culinary teams that work hard to deliver the best experience possible.
Service and food was excellent as usual! Thanks, Phillip : )
phillip was a solid server who knew his menu. would recommend
My husband and I had dinner at Seaworthy during our honeymoon in New Orleans. We each had a cocktail - he had the Strange Bird and I had the Holy Water (I didn't pay the extra $5 to keep the glass, but I almost wish I had). They were expertly made and presented. Our server, Nick, was extremely helpful, warm, and kind. My husband ordered the Louisiana rock shrimp roll and I had the burger, and both were cooked exactly to order and were extremely good. We loved the space, the decor, and everything about Seaworthy. We will most certainly be back on our next trip to Nola.
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
Initially we looked at the menu and was thinking about leaving. We were the first group seated. We we received our food it was awesome. Terrific service. Menu limited; however, it’s probably due to covid to decrease waste. We would definately return. Swordfish was teriffic!
