    Redfish Grill has consistently great service, incredible food (the namesake dish is my go-to and is always yummy, not matter the season), and is in a great location not too far into Bourbon Street. Been going there 14+ years and it is wonderful each and every time.

    The restaurant is located in the first block of Bourbon Street. Parking close by is very accessible. The staff is very accommodating. The food is centered around local favorites and very well prepared. Spices are mild to moderate. Chocolate Bread Pudding is beyond heavenly.

    I went for brunch and the food was AMAZING! I ordered the crawfish cakes and eggs (scrambled). Two of my friends took advantage of the restaurant week specialty menu. They let me sample the lobster cheesecake and crawfish bread. The flavors of everything I ate exploded on my tongue. And I cannot forget the bottomless cocktails! The blood orange bellini was my favorite. Our server Ike was very quick with the service and very personable. I am an out of towner, but will be back whenever I’m visiting New Orleans!

    First timers to NO, so we tried the specialties. Fried oyster appetizer was a lil disappointing it was simply Buffalo sauce on a fried oyster with blue cheese sauce drizzle. Had the crispy Brussels as well, they were good and sweet but could have used more salt from bacon or garlic…something was just missing. Ok on to the best part…ordered the other house specials gumbo and red fish. I asked for the entree version of the gumbo, they brought out a nice big bowl. It looked like black bean soup, I was confused. Not a lot of rice at all, and not super thick. But oh my goodness, this was hands down the best gumbo I’ve ever had. The gumbo held its own, didn’t need all that rice. My husband for the red fish. It was so fresh and tasty vey well seasoned. Our waiter was beyond professional and attentive. All and all we will be back next time we are in town. I have to have that gumbo again!

    We waited a very long time for our meals but the Waiter did apologize and give complementary drinks. Nevertheless the wait spoilt the experience. The food when it arrived was good but the portions were on the small side. No good value.

    Red Fish has long been a favorite, and our recent visit only rates as Good. None of the dishes knocked us out, and an oyster appetizer we both ordered was fried and covered in Buffalo Sauce and Blue Cheese which denied any taste of oysters. The gumbo was good but not great and our entrees were good to very good. The local gulf fish -- black drum -- was good. We'll return for Happy Hour and fresh oysters there.

    Only negative is that they swipe your card at the table side which makes you feel on the spot for tipping and also makes you feel rushed. The place is otherwise Fantastic.

    We loved the atmosphere. Our server took our order then another server came to take our order. There was confusion on whose station we were in. Neither server put our order in. 35 minutes for our appetizer. Then discovered our entrees were not given to kitchen. 40 minutes later we received our entree. Both servers were nice but hard to find. Apps: Brussels sprouts- cooked perfectly but way to sweet. Caprese salad - under seasoned and unremarkable. Entrees: shrimp an grits - good but nothing special- seasoned perfectly. Seafood pasta - seasoned perfectly and was good. Could maybe have offered a free dessert for all their mistakes and the long wait time…didn’t help that we were very hungry.
