"Friends don't let friends eat frozen fish" is the mantra at Red Fish Grill, Ralph Brennan's vibrant, seafood-centric landmark which delivers locally-sourced, seasonally fresh, innovative twists on Gulf fish, oysters, shrimp, crab, & crawfish & anchors the first block of Bourbon Street. Named one of the nation's "Best Seafood Restaurants" by Travel + Leisure and readers of USA Today (& 9x 'Best Oyster Po-boy' winner at the New Orleans Po Boy Festival), Red Fish Grill has dominated the French Quarter seafood scene for over 20 years. Polished-casual service co-stars alongside Chef Chris Vazquez's signature menu featuring our namesake Hickory Grilled Redfish, Alligator Sausage & Seafood Gumbo, flash-fried BBQ Oysters in Crystal butter sauce, & Double Chocolate Bread Pudding.

    Too much unhealthy fried food. And the dish that was not fried was swimming in some sort of dishwater. Choose very carefully!

    It was fantastic! Redfish is my favorite restaurant in the city & that’s coming from a local who doesn’t typically like tourist-centered restaurants. It was my birthday & I have a tradition where on special occasions I ask for the chef to sign & date a menu for me. Not only did they accommodate, they did a special presentation that made my day extra special! I appreciate the effort & thought that went into my birthday dinner!

    In NOLA for 3 nights and this was the best dining experience by far. Got seated promptly and drinks served soon after. There was some delay at the kitchen due to large parties. But Chris the waiter came over with some short drinks on the house and apologized for the delay. Food was very good and we left satisfied.

    The Red Fish Grill is located in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Easy to get to and very good food. We were seated immediately and the service was good. Our table had a variety of items including their signature Red Fish with crab on top. very good. We will go back.

    We were served old bread. The manager came to apologize - said waitress had taken bread from old bread used for stuffing/cooking. Waitress attitude became defensive and disrespectful - we paid for drinks and left.

    WOW! One of the best meals our family has had. Their specialties are soooo good! You have to ask for Ike Jackson as your server, he is absolutely amazing and brings something special to the dining experience. Will definitely be returning on our next visit to NOLA!

    For the Thanksgiving buffet, the place was like the golden corral but with just slightly better food. no turkey. no ham, prime rib was offered but the serve was unaware of cooking temperatures. It didn’t matter, he gave me gristle. the shrimp and grits included 4 medium sized shrimp with mild bbq gravy. weird and not good. The dressings were dry - overcooked. The gumbo was a joke. The best deal of the spread was jumbo shrimp on ice. I paid around $70/plate and it should have been $15.

    Best Gumbo in New Orleans, shrimp was very fresh, just the right amount of seasonings ( I added a little horseradish in my sauce), and went back twice prime rib was tasty and was like butter when chewed, fish was good. However, the fried Turkey was very dry and disappointing.

    I thought the food was decent but I didn't feel like it stood out and amazed me. Some of the flavors were a bit bland when we thought it was going to be a flavor punch but overall it was ok.
