Red Fish Grill Ratings and Reviews
This restaurant is more like a seafood TGIFriday’s than a destination for New Orleans seafood. There are massive crowds of people. My table and another were largely ignored by our server until management was brought in. Appetizers came out after mains, entrees were sent back, etc. Portions were small for the hefty price tags (most fish dishes were around $30) and the flavors were not interesting. I would not return to this restaurant.
The food was great. We tried the alligator boudin balls. I had the redfish with lump crapmeat. My husband ordered jambalaya risotto. All of these dishes were great, but the showstopper was the chocolate bread pudding. I recommend a reservation as walk ups were waiting an hour or more and we were seated immediately.
Our server was great, attentive and seemed to know what we needed before we did. His name was Kevin. Great job!
Service was ok. Food was good - nothing truly special though. In New Orleans you can find good, and more often than not, outstanding food on every block. Despite having a reservation, and the fact that there were at least ten open four top tables viable when we arrived, we were asked to wait in the bar. Seated more than 15 minutes after our reservation at a table that was open when we arrived. Always think less of an experience when this happens - comes off as a ploy to force you buy drinks...
Although Red Fish Grill is to some extent a very packaged version of the New Orleans culinary scene, it is still high quality fresh food expertly cooked and served by knowledgeable and welcoming waitstaff. I wouldn't hesitate to go back or to recommend it to others!
My husband and I are first time travelers to NOLA and decided to visit Red Fish Grill on a recommendation from our hotel. We got a reservation and we were VERY IMPRESSED! Food was great! We had the red fish with crab and the crab cake entree! Our server, Michael, was OUTSTANDING! He was able to recommend his favorite dishes and what we should try as well as recommend some great live jazz music bars on Frenchmen St. He by far made our experience above and beyond!
As busy as the French Quarter usually is, this is one of the few places that is well managed. Every time I've made a reservation there I've been seated within a minute or two of my reservation time. Staff is extremely friendly and efficient. Tables are run very well. Food is excellent and prices, especially for the French Quarter, are very fair.
I made this reservation for New Years Day lunch. It was extremely cold outside so the room was freezing. Our table waiter was very nice and we really enjoyed it, but he was a bit overwhelmed. It seemed like management served the food to us and my husband's entrée was placed in front of the spouse of the other couple. He ate my husband's entrée and when we asked about my husband's we thought it was going to be delivered, but it never showed up. We ended up canceling it. The other person said it was very good though. They removed the entrée charge, but he walked away hungry. :( It made for a long day for him.
