The overall atmosphere was very very pleasant and all of the employees were very knowledgeable and kind. The pricing was very good. I enjoyed every single bite of the food and every sip of the wine. I will go there again in a heartbeat.

I live between Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean in Maryland and I’m super picky about seafood. I never miss an opportunity to eat at Redfish. Their food is amazing, especially oysters and swordfish!

We have eaten at Red Fish several times on visits to New Orleans. We have always enjoyed this restaurant in the past. This visit was not the same as before. It was on a Monday night. Not busy at all with many empty tables. We ordered drinks with a first course. This arrived very quickly. Before we could finish a drink and appetizer, the waiter was at my side with my main course in his hand. We were so rushed that we could not enjoy the evening.

I was so irritated that I do not even remember what I ordered. I doubt that we will be returning in the future. Sorry because it used to be my favorite.

I went with a party of 5. The service would get a higher rating than 5 if I could. If you go ask for Andrew. He is one of the most knowledgeable waiters I have had in a while. His array of knowledge on the drinks and wine was exceptional. I eat out at least 12 times a week. This was one of the most enjoyable servers I have had this year.
Everyone in the party was very happy with their food and had no complaints.
I would absolutely recommend this for casual or business dining. The prices are good for level of food and service we got.

We had a great experience here! The service was very friendly, the BBQ oysters were amazing and my salad was super fresh. They even brought out a surprise birthday dessert for my husband when we let them know we were celebrating his 30th. I definitely recommend!

I should've known better than to reserve a nice restaurant on Bourbon Street, but I went ahead and did it hoping since it was on the first block on Bourbon Street. I was wrong.... Even with a 6 pm reservation.
Very noisy and crowded with drunk people. Our server - Ronald - was excellent, the food was good but not very good. Overall, a solid 3 stars and disappointing.

The restaurant is nice, and the menu good. Our server was not very informative or friendl. We had dietary restrictions, with very little assistance from the server. But at the end we got the opportunity to talk to the head chef and found out that he could have adjusted the menu for us, thus making the experience much more enjoyable. Please educate your servers on allergies and how to ask the Chef if you do not know.

The Jambalaya Risotto is my favorite item on the menu. The food here is consistently good and is a great value. Not always easy to park, but worth the trouble. I wish they would put the Key Lime Pie back on the dessert menu.

I was here with a friend I hadn't seen since 2014; the food was delicious...but it was our server, Ashley, who made it truly an easygoing and enjoyable experience. She knew we were catching up, so she checked in but was unobtrusive, and otherwise, she was funny and helpful with dietary restrictions, never making it seem like it was too much trouble to go back into the kitchen to make sure that certain things were possible to order. She was a pleasure to have as a server--personable, professional, and really connected with us as diners, instead of making it seem like it was just a shift she had to get through. We were truly appreciative.
