Simply the best snapper I have ever had--perfectly seasoned and cooked and veggies underneath were also delicious.

Great food. Although they have other options it’s predominantly a fish place.
Staff was very friendly and accommodating although very busy.
Even though it’s in prime “tourist” real estate it’s a great place to eat. Drinks, apps, dinner and dessert will run you $100-$150 for 2.

Had read great reviews about how tasty the seafood was here and it didn't disappoint. I had the grilled redfish with lemon vinagarette sauce and my husband had the snapper and both were delicious. I only wished the serving was a little bigger because it was so good. It did, however, allow me to have room for dessert and so I had the double chocolate bread pudding which was heavenly. I loved the atmosphere in the restaurant too. All in all, a great first dinner on our trip to New Orleans.

Valentine’s Day. Cute ocean themed decor. BBQ oysters were amazing—- could eat a pile of them alone for dinner. Chocolate bread pudding soufflé was almost too rich but definitely hit the spot for chocolate lovers.

Good option for a casual seafood meal on Bourbon Street. We were there on Valentine's Day but, though the restaurant was crowded, the service was very prompt and correct. James was an attentive waiter who had good suggestions on food and drink. I appreciated the fact that the manager (lead hostess?) came round to our table to have a nice chat with us about our experience in New Orleans and to be sure everything was OK food wise.

The meal was OK, but this is a restaurant a long way from the top of the tree when it comes to dining choices in New Orleans. Don't expect too much, even when it comes to local seafood dishes. Average gumbo and red fish for me, whereas my partner had a red snapper that was grey and tasteless. Main dishes were all served on a bed of "seasonal vegetables", old and overcooked they were very unappealing. Sauteed spinach was however a very good side dish.

Honestly the red fish was great but I never received such a small portion (guessing around 2-3 oz.). It also came with mashed potatoes,taste was excellent but incredibly small. I think being Monday night before Mardi Gras they were so busy and wanted to spread it out. I literally had three bites and was done at $29 plate. I was going to order a second but I cut my losses and had desert. I left hungry

Not as good as it was last time we were there. Our server was fun and attentive. Two out of 10 entrees were cold, but they did take them back and brought new ones. The flavor and combination of foods was just okay, not up to their standards.

Made reservations during Mardi Gras. The restaurant was packed and loud but, to be expected during that time of year. I was very surprised I could even make a reservation. It was open late which was perfect to hit up after the Carnivals. Just make sure you are on the correct side of Canal Street if you need to break from your parade early so that you can get across the road. Food was very good (Turnip Green / Butternut Squash Bisque was excellent). Entre was a little pricey but, still very good.

I was solo, at a business conference with a relatively early reservation. The restaurant was very busy with large groups who seemed to be having fun. I felt rushed by my server. I had oysters on the half shell that were fresh and wonderful. The sauce was delightful. The oysters were truly a delight. My dinner arrived before I'd eaten half of them, contributing to my feeling rushed. I mentioned it to the server but didn't send it back. The fire grilled red fish was outstanding. I recommend ordering a salad if you would like an edible vegetable. I ordered coffee and the chocolate bread pudding with ice cream for dessert. The highlight of my service was young James who served the dessert and made a show of pouring the chocolate sauce over the ice cream. The dessert was good but James was the highlight of my evening and was rewarded with a separate tip. I was in and out in less than an hour. I walked a few blocks for a calming cup of coffee at Sucre. I'd go back with a group.

We chose Red Fish in advance for our annual visit to New Orleans and were not disappointed. There were many non-fried entrees to choose from, a "must" in our decision-making. The spicy shrimp lettuce wrap appetizers were delicious! I loved my filet mignon, perfectly cooked and seasoned, and my friend adored his grilled shrimp entree. The prices were so reasonable by NOLA standards and our waiter was friendly and attentive. Red Fish is definitely on our "return to" list for next year's visit!

Husband ordered their signature Wood Grilled Redfish & Sauteed Gulf Shrimp. The shrimp were practically non-existent and the whole meal was very over seasoned. I'm not a seafood person so I just ordered a salad and a side of garlic mashed potatoes. The salad was swimming in dressing. The potatoes were COLD and rather tasteless which ended up being okay because after every salty over seasoned bite of his fish, my husband ate a little forkful of potatoes to kill the saltiness. Our server seemed to disappear. We had a much better meal (Redfish and Crab Cakes) at Creole Cookery. Definitely did not live up to our expectations and extremely overpriced.

Our favorite place to eat before a Saenger Broadway show. The food, ambiance, atmosphere, service were all great.

I want to wish Chef Austin congratulations on his showing on Master Chef and coming in second place. First would have been great, but we’re proud of him nonetheless.

We come every year for my boyfriends birthday. The food was better than ever. Loved the addition of the peacemaker. But service was sub par. We always split are entree and apps and always get them split for us. This time they weren’t. Thought you didn’t do it anymore until our server did it for the table next to us. And she could have made you and her more money if she had bothered to offer a second glass of wine when my glass was empty and we were still eating. My boyfriend is a GM of a restaurant and said she killed her tip. Not the friendliest. But we love Redfish and it is our first stop every time we are here
