The Governor Seafood & Oyster Bar
Was more casual than expected. More of a bar atmosphere. The server was friendly. The food was tasty. Hard to park.
Thanks so much for dining with us Shannon, hope you had a great time in New Orleans!
Our server, Jarrod, was warm, attentive, personable and had the quintessential New Orleans charm! The food was well presented and delicious. I enjoyed dining on the balcony and the overall ambiance was delightful!
Try the Fig Manhattan—it was divine!
We love Jared too, so glad you enjoyed everything so much!
OMG. We went for the brunch. Had the Pomegranate Posettia cocktail - delish and refreshing. The Ponchetrain Benedict was melt in your mouth and the Jambalaya was just right. Prices are reasonable and service was good and friendly.
Great choices on everything you ordered Hilary, thanks so much for dining with us! Hope to see you again soon!
I enjoyed my food, it was very flavorful and not heavy at all!! The dessert was scrumptious!!
So glad you enjoyed, please come back soon and try some more of our great desserts!
This is not an elegant place to go for a bachelorette dinner. The food took FOREVER to come out, two of our orders were wrong; however they did correct them. It was okay, but with all of the other restaurants in the area, I don’t think I’d go back.
I am so sorry if we let you down in any way, your feedback really does matter to us! Please give us another chance to make things right for you, we guarantee you will not be disappointed!
Sparkes and Sunshine were wonderful and super friendly! Food was great, drinks were refreshing and lovely.
Thanks so much, we really appreciate you dining with us! We love Tasha and Sparkles too!
El servicio magnífico, pero sentimos que querían que nos fuéramos rápido...
Muchas gracias por cenar con nosotros, ¡lo siento si te sentiste apurado! ¡Ven a vernos de nuevo pronto, prometemos que no tendremos prisa!
Good quiet place
So glad you enjoyed, thanks for dining with us! Please come visit again when you get a chance!
Rough first night with this meal. Appetizer never came out. Food came out almost an hour after ordering and was warm not hot. Mgr comped the drinks but the damage was done. I would skip this place at all costs.
So sorry for letting you down, your feedback really does matter to us! Please come visit us again at your convenience and I will do everything I can to regain your trust as our guest. Thanks again for choosing The Governor in the first place, I hope to hear from you real soon.
Great staff! Very great energy and great environment!!
So glad you enjoyed, we think you are pretty great too! Please come see us again soon, we really appreciate it!
Was unimpressed food took a very long time to come out and when arrived was tasteless when my husband was asked how he liked the Taste of New Orleans he told them honestly below average which then the manager overheard and she loudly spent 10 minutes at our table telling us how they were apart of a large coporate 24 restaurant chain with menu consistancy etc. I finally had to please ask her to leave us in peace because she was so aggressive would not reccomend or eat here again
I am so sorry that we let you down, please come give us another chance to make it up to you! Your feedback really does matter to us, we hope to be able to serve you again real soon!
The bartender was our server for breakfast. She was personable and very good at taking care of us. We had the bottomless mimosas and our glasses were never empty. Food was great and we highly recommend the breakfast/ brunch. Great value for an equally great meal.
So glad you had such a great time, we really appreciate your dining with us here at The Governor!
Our server was amazing. We were a group of six there for brunch for Southern Decadence. I obviously had reservations on Open Table, but the hostess seemed confused by the service dog, so we had to sit by a table by the open door that wasn't ready yet, but then we were offered the balcony, which we tried, but it was way too hot. A table that was open upstairs was reserved, never mind that we had reservations (maybe we weren't Southern Decadenced enough), so back downstairs to the table by the door we went. Other than it feeling like the hostess not understanding service dogs have full access privileges, everything else was great. The cocktails were delicious, the portions were generous with delicious food, and our server was the best.
Sorry about any confusion on our part Kendra, glad you had such a great time dining with us! We really do appreciate your business, hope to serve you again in the future!
Our server, Stephen/Steven was the best! Very attentive and responsive.
We love Steven too, glad you had such a great time!
10/10 LOVEEE this place and all the staff!! I will be back!!
Thanks so much, glad you enjoyed your visit Malinda! Can't wait to serve you again, thanks for dining with us!
OMG! Where do I start? From the moment I walked in for brunch for my birthday on August 13 at 11:30am I was greeted by Ms. Angela who wished me an happy Birthday as she show on the table seating after we was seated we was then greeted by our server Ms. Lindsay who was AWESOME was on time for everything we need of course we got the bottomless mimosa which they didn’t have time to even be empty before she was back refilling our glasses (I think she did that on purpose lol) she took our order as we gave them and also made recommendations (which we took) didnt rush us or anything she left to put our orders in and no later then it felt like 10mins our food was out looking oh so good and was HOT EVERYTHING was hot once she made sure we was straight she let us enjoy our meal as we ate we got a chance to meet the manager Ms. Tasha (aka MS. Sunshine) who was on her toes to make sure everyone and everything was good in the restaurant and also made sure to acknowledge every guest she stop to talk to us asd is everything ok and of course we had our mouths full of food we had to tell her how amazing the food was and who was the cook on that day she said Mr. Delroy the cook and the kitchen manager Ms. Jazz so we told her we wanted to thank them in person and she was like for real and was like yes and immediately she called for them and they was there like that we talk thank them and told them we would only be coming back on the days they work lol what more could I say about this place is I’ll for sure be going back and it also wasn’t pricey either thank thank thank
Sounds like a great time was had by all, thanks so much for spending your birthday with all of us here at The Governor! Please come back and see us real soon, we really appreciate the great feedback!
What an outstanding dining experience. The food was amazing. Jared, our server was great! All the other staff members were very friendly and professional as well. If you have an opportunity to dine on the balcony, do it. It’s great for people watching.
We love Jared too, thanks so much for dining with us!
An absolute gem for brunch! We enjoyed our first visit so much, I made reservations to eat a second time two days later. They truly do mean bottomless mimosas and the food is killer to boot. You can add a side of jambalaya or grits to every breakfast order. The fried gator was some of the best I've eaten ever and the oysters were super fresh (plus delicious).
Thanks so much for the kind words Joan, it really means a lot to us! So glad you enjoyed the gator and oysters, can't go wrong with bottomless mimosas as well!
Service was quick and wonderful, and the crawfish
So glad you had such a great time, thanks for stopping in!
The food was okay!! I wasn’t crazy about the egg. The fish could’ve used more seasoning!! The waiter was soooo nice and friendly . I will be retuning back
Thanks so much for dining with us here at The Governor, we can't wait for your return visit!
Yummy food and great service! Affordable for vacationing families!
So glad you enjoyed, please come visit again soon!
Great oysters, drinks, food and service. Trevor was a blast.
We love Trevor too, glad you enjoyed!
I made reservations not knowing anything about this restaurant! I was responsible for making dinner reservations for my group during my sororities convention (Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.) My sorors and family loved the food! The fish and shrimp was fried just right! You get a lot of food! I would go back and eat there! Pray hurricane Barry doesn't come on shore so we can go back and eat there!!
So glad you found us, thanks so much for the great feedback Tracey!
The service was excellent and the food was good.
There were a couple tables close by that were extremely loud.
Besides the two loud tables it was excellent.
Please come see us again John, thanks for visiting!
I made reservations so our seating was fast, but it was a 30-45 minute wait before we received our drinks, and when we did in was flies in them. Which tells me that they were sitting for some time. My husband had to get up and go to the bar to get new ones which took another 10 minutes. Our waitress did not check on us one time. We didn’t even receive water refills. The food was good, so the cooks did their job. They need to hire better waiters and waitresses. Good food overall.
So sorry that we let you down Latice, please give us another chance to make it up to you! We really appreciate your business, hope to see you again soon!
Visited while attending the Essence Festival. Everyone in the group was extremely pleased with their meals and the service. Food was excellent!!
Thanks so much, glad y'all had a great time!
Sunshine and Isaiah were amazing. We will definitely be back!
We love them both too, thanks for joining us!
DO NOT GO HERE. THE SERVICE IS TRAGIC. THE PLACE WAS NOT CLEAN. THE STAFF COULD NOT HAVE CARED LESS ABOUT OUR EXPERIENCE
I am so sorry we let you down, please contact us at 504-226-7057 at your convenience and I guarantee we will do everything we can to regain your trust as our guest!
We had lunch here and it was GREAT!! JADA was PHENOMENAL!!! She was very attentive, kind and made great recommendations for my mom who has special dietary needs. The food was so flavorful and the overall service was some of the best I’ve had during all my travels! Awesome job!!
So glad that you enjoyed everything so much, please come see us again real soon!
A few of us got the cajun stuffed fish and found it outstanding. The chicken poboy also got a big thumbs up. The gumbo and the pasta dish were only ok. The service, the location, the ambiance, everything else was great.
Great choice on everything you ordered Paul, please come back soon and try some more!
Oysters and poboys were very good. Service was prompt. I would eat here again for sure.
Much appreciated, hope to see you again in the future!
It was my first time there. I’d go back. The food was good and it was pretty cute in there. My only complaint was that our waiter had zero personality. He seemed annoyed with our questions about the menu. Had it not been for him our experience would have been much better.
So sorry we let you down, please give us another chance to make things right by you!
Fabulous food and excellent service from Isaiah.
We love Isaiah too, please come see us again soon!
We tries the alligator for an appetizer and the taste of New Orleans for our meal. The alligator was way overcooked. Hard and chewy. No flavor. The main course was luke warm and nothing special. This was the worse meal I had in New Orleans.
I am so sorry that we let you down, please give us another chance to make things right for you!
The food was great and the service was very good, we didn’t have to ask for anything for our table. There wasn’t a lot of people which was good in my opinion it’s a hidden gem.
So glad that you had a great time, please come back soon so we can do it all over again!
Thanks so much for spending your special day with us, glad you had a great time!
Food could’ve been spot on if it wasn’t “warm” I’m not sure if there isn’t a kitchen manager but the food was not hot at all. The service was great and quick with refills but the food was a complete letdown.
So sorry for letting you down, please come back again and give us a chance to make things right for you!
It was just okay.... waitress was great!
Please give us another chance to make it a "WOW" experience, I guarantee we won't disappoint you again!
Really enjoyed our waitress. Very friendly and helped us choose a dinner spot!(:
Glad you enjoyed everything so much, please come see us again soon!
This was a really good place to get brunch....the bottomless mimosas!!!
Thanks so much Coco!
