Red Fish Grill is a great place to eat reasonable-sized portions at New Orleans-reasonable prices (mid-$20’s and up for entrees). My cocktail was delicious, and my entree (blackened tuna bowl) was tasty and not too large. We ordered the horseradish mashed potatoes and they were delightful. The ambiance was energetic; you could laugh out loud and not draw any attention, which is my kind of place!

We love Red fish before our broadway show outings and we celebrate each other’s birthdays along the way. However we were disappointed with the shrimp and grits recipe you now use. Please consider going back to the old recipe.

Lunch was very good. Oysters on the half shell and barbecued. My wife had a po-boy after having a spice issue with her first choice. Service was first rate and changed her order without question and kept returning to see if things were handled. Everything was done well. We would go back for sure.

Great food and service! 10/10 would recommend to all. Everything we had was great, and open table made it really easy to get reservations. Made them 15 minutes before we got there and still got seated quickly on a crowded evening.

I made reservations for 9PM & we arrived 10min prior. We were seated 30min after. On a Friday night you’re probably better off making reservations 30min prior than you really want. Food was good, service mediocre, place was packed.

Amazing food. The alligator meatballs were memorable. The only downside was that our waiter would insist us to order alcoholic beverages or get desserts. Over and over again. Made us think that he worked on commission. A minor detail if you consider the quality of their food.

 (Atlanta)·Dined on November 11, 2017

We were seated at the time of our reservation, no waiting. The BBQ oysters were so tiny (no oyster in it) that the manager had to come over and apologize and bring a new plate. We waited 40 minutes for our entrees. Two of our group (5 people) hd to send back the fish as it was so overdone that it was inedible. Have been here many times in the past and will never go back again.

The food is good as always and yet the service was unusually bad. Asked the waiter specifically if the red fish with okra can be prepared without bacon and was told yes and then when the meal was delivered it was red fish WITHOUT ANY OKRA. Definitely not happy and food cane out late and little cold.

I was in town for a business meeting. many people from my group had eaten there the night before and everyone raved about their dinner selections. My group had several questions about the menu and our waitress answered with no hesitation, it was clear she knew the food well. All her recommendations were spot on. the peanut butter dessert was unreal. Can't wait for my next trip.

We ate there a few years ago and love the food so when we came back to New Orleans this time we wanted to go there again. We were very disappointed this time. Service was excellent, however the food does not taste good. The vegetable I received with my shrimp was hard turnips with the ends of them still on. I didn't eat any of them. So for $27 I got seven shrimp. My husband was not happy with his meal either and only ate part of it. We won't be back.

Tourist trap. One large dining room crammed with tables where I was literally two feet away from the guest next to me. Red Snapper had layer of dark skin on top and was tasteless, my wife didn't eat it. Frankly we didn't think it was Red Snapper. Grouper was ok but fish portion was ridiculously small. Grits were pretty good. My wife says the reviews here were pretty good, maybe we ordered the wrong stuff. Never again.

GW Fins is a block away and 100 times better in every way.

Left a note for our booking that we were celebrating my sister's birthday. They had some good choices for kids and everything that we ate was very delicious. My husband and I had the alligator boudin balls and split the jambalaya risotto. It was very delicious. When we ordered the classic bread pudding for dessert they had spruced it up for my sister's birthday! Staff was very friendly and helpful and even had managers walking around ensuring everyone was being well taken care of! Such great food and atmosphere, I would definitely go back again!

The service and food at Red Fish Grill are excellent. The food is reasonably priced. By all means, order the barbecued oysters, an inventive preparation that is truly outstanding. They're offered as an appetizer, but I could see having a dinner consisting of 2 or 3 orders of these!

The food was generally good.
However, I had a vegetarian in my party, and thought that the information online that said to ask the server about vegetarian options meant that there would be options (plural). Instead, there was a single option- pasta with vegetables. It would helpful to simply list that on the menu so there’s no misconception.

Last time I was in town was at least 10 years ago and I had remembered eating there for dinner.

The food was on time and very delicious. Next time when in town again I'll definitely stop there again.
