    The food and service were impeccable. The gator boudin balls are a must! You’ll thank me later. I actually opted for the chicken dish and OMG the tamarind chipotle bbq sauce is one I’ve not experienced anywhere else. The corn pudding was so good I ate every crumb. Red Fish Grill does it yet again! Our go to for a sure hit dining experience.

    We absolutely loved Redfish Grill! The food was fantastic from start to finish. We had the fried oysters, boudin balls, gumbo, watermelon/tomato salad, wood grilled fish and the chocolate bread pudding…plus a hurricane. We lied everything but the standouts were the oysters, bread pudding, gumbo and fish (especially the sauce on it). The real highlight of our experience was our server Jimmy, who was fun, efficient and made excellent recommendations. My 14 year old son loved it all as much as I did.

    Wow! Kudos to the Red Fish Grill for such and amazing dining experience. My first time having such exceptional service. When we arrived for our reservation we were immediately seated. The Waiter came place our order in. The three hors d’oeuvres we ordered were out to us in five minutes. Dinner came out 12 minutes later. Everything was delicious 😋. I must say. You will not go wrong choosing the Red Fish Grill. When I come back to New Orleans I will make sure this Gem is included in my itinerary. The chocolate Bread pudding is a must have!!!!! Thanks Red Fish Grill. 😋😋😊

    Our server greeted us in a timely manner and brought us water. We had boudin balls for appetizer which were tasty but then everything went south. Kitchen service was very slow. It took over a half hour to receive our entree. We had the catfish dish which came out cold and lacked flavor and the shrimp and grits which was very small. Our server was apologetic for the slow service which was appreciated. For the price, I would expect much more from this restaurant.

    Every year that we visit New Orleans, we have always had dinner at Red Fish Grill. However, I have to admit that I was reluctant this year because I didn't think the food or the service was up to their usual standards on our last visit. But I was so pleased that the quality of the food, the menu choices and the servers were back to 5 start ratings. From appetizers to dessert, the chef outdid himself/herself with the excellent choices of seafood, especially the wood fired Red Fish. The hostesses were welcoming and friendly along with the servers were knowledgeable of all the menu items. This restaurant is back on my list as a go-to for dinner when in New Orleans.

    We really enjoyed our food at Red Fish Grill. I had the Wood Grilled Redfish with Louisiana Crawfish and a Praline Sundae. Both were phenomenal. The only reason I have 4/5 was because it could be kind of noisy at times and the menu seemed kind of limited. Overall I would return.
