Seafood
"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, and crawfish and anchors the first block of Bourbon Street. Named one of the nation's "Best Seafood Restaurants" by Travel + Leisure and readers of USA Today (and 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, and decadent Double Chocolate Bread Pudding, AKA - "the 8th wonder of the world". Red Fish Grill's festive décor, expansive bar, oyster bar, and laid-back vibe offer a perfect prelude to or occasion for a night in the Quarter.

I've been to Red Fish Grill many times and it's always a treat. The food is excellent and reasonably priced, and the service is extremely friendly. It's one of my go-to restaurants.

One of the Brennan group restaurants that serves the same quality of meal as Brennan's, but at a more reasonable price.
The restaurant, when full, is vibrant (rea that as loud) but not so loud you can't carry on a normal conversation.
We Had gumbo and Alligator Boudin for appetizers. Both were as good as we've had anywhere.
Wood Grilled Redfish & Louisiana Lump Crabmeat with tasso ham & roasted mushroom Pontalba potatoes, lemon butter sauce and Pan-Fried Louisiana Blue Crab Cake with grilled portobello mushrooms, Brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes, andouille cream sauce for the entrées.
Both were mouth watering.
Would definitely return.

A very busy restaurant with servers that had too many tables. Delicious food, but to add $7.50 to each dessert for "ala mode" seemed ridiculously overpriced when the ice cream was really just basic soft serve.

Food and service was great! We ate fairly early and it wasn't busy. The only thing I would say that was a negative is the amount of food on the plate.

Overall, pretty mediocre. Very limited menu and dinner type service. I had the "signature dish" which was nothing special and a very small portion. With all the great restaurants in NOLA, I wouldn't go back to this one.

I have been coming to Red Fish since 1998 and it has been consistently great - from the melt in your mouth hot bread to the addicting BBQ FRIED OYSTERS and alligator gumbo I love this place.

Was highly disappointed in the dining experience and the food. This place is very very loud. Was anniversary dinner for us. We could not even have a conversation. We did get gumbo which was mediocre at best. My wife got shrimp and grits and I got Red fish with crabmeat. Came over peas and rice which were frozen peas. No great taste. We did order creme brûlée for desert. It actually was a vanilla pudding in a mini pie crust. They did put sugar on top and brûlée’d it. Very disappointed. We did eat at Emeril’s the day before which was outstanding and over the top. Would never go back to this place.

We have eaten at a number of Brennan restaurants in the past. Red Fish Grill is another that measures up to the Brennan reputation.

Excellent Creole/Cajun seafood. BBQ Oyeters are great. Wood Grilled Gulf Fish was Amberjack and excellent. Desserts superfluousafter that meal, but very good.

I had the blackened catfish and it was extremely delicious. The peacemaker (1/2 buffalo shrimp 1/2 buffalo oysters) was to die for.

The other person with me asked for his fish done without any sauce or crab on top and it came out with... sauce and crab, so it got sent back and he waited while I had my dinner. Not the best of dinner. Otherwise fine.

Aspapagus soup was stringy! Maybe strain it!
Daily catch Mahi Mahi was overcooked.
Wait staff needs training on plate delivery. I was handed my plate from accross the table.
I've been here before and had great meals. Not sure what has happened!
I'll still recommend this time but.......
