The front of house team was great from the greeters at the door to our hostess. The food was below average. The BBQ oysters and shrimp had a very heavy batter that hid any flavor of the seafood. And the presentation was very sloppy. It looked like literally the oysters and shrimp were thrown on to the dishes. Each shrimp or oyster had it’s own indentation in the plate to hold the sauce. I had some oysters with an overwhelming amount of sauce, two with no sauce, some had a ton of green onions and some had literally one tiny slice. Others at my table ordered the same dish and most got two small oysters or one large per indentation. I got one small oyster in each indentation and my husband got three. We each had salad. Again very sloppy presentation. And one person had zero dressing. It was embarrassing. Wait staff was wonderful.

It’s a more casual restaurant which was great. The wood fired redfish was excellent and recommended as the dish to have if trying the redfish itself. The noise level was moderate giving it a slight decrease in my idea of dining.
Would highly recommend if you don’t mind it being a little loud.

Food was disappointing. Our waitress, Ann, was phenomenal and very knowledgeable about the menu. But in the end, my fish was dry and bland. The alligator Boudain was nothing special. I wish we had gone somewhere else and spent less money.

My wife and I went for a pre Saengar dinner. Food and drinks were amazing. Our third time there and they never disappoint. Great atmosphere and even though it’s on Bourbon, it’s not overcrowded with people. Nice bar also.

The service, food and level of sincere attention, were exceptional and of the highest standard - the ambience was relaxed and unpretentious and Adam and the host went the extra mile. We arrived early on an extremely busy night with many conventioners (like us) in town and the host seated us at the earliest possible opportunity. Redfish is an example that many restaurants would do well to follow. Thank you for a delightful evening!

We met a friend that we hadn’t seen in years. I saw reviews that said the BBQ Oysters were amazing and they were! I’m still thinking about them. The menu is pricey definitely $$ not $ like yelp said. My husband had the chicken with dirty rice and said it was good. We had the chocolate bread pudding too and it was delicious.

We went to Red Fish at the recommendation of the hotel we stayed at. There were 3 of us in our party. We were looking forward to a good NO meal. Our daughter ordered a steak, I ordered the BBQ oysters and my husband ordered the refish special. It took over 1 hour for us to receive our food. The waitress was very nice, but she did nothing to try to make us happy about the delay in our food delivery until the check was delivered. we were disappointed.

This is my third time at Redfish and honestly my least favorite so far. The service is amazing and has been every time. My main complain this time was the actual food. It just didn’t taste as good or as decadent as it did in the past. My crab cake was fine and the redfish was good but there just seemed to be something off.

Food was very good. Waitress was fantastic. Checked on us at the right times and my water was never left empty. Wasn’t very happy with our seating because we were very close to other groups and was next to a very busy area but the food and service was very good. Would recommend going there for a casual night out.
