Service was great. Ambience was good. Ordered Blackened Redfish and it was dry. Tuna Bowl with Tasso was flavorful, but just didn’t get me too excited. Portions were huge. Chocolate Bread Pudding was fantastic and plenty for two people to share. No complaints really, just wasn’t much impressed with the fish.

Really bad service. Other waitstaff brought their customers bread with the water. Ours was well after we ordered. Other tables were offered bread refills. We were not. A busboy came and whisked away our butter.

I ordered BBQ shrimp app and was brought BBQ oysters. Idiot waiter tried to make it my fault He stopped by again long after shrimp had arrived and been eaten and taken away to ask if they had not yet come? No concept of time. I had to request that we place order for bread pudding - he never even brought up the 20 min delay. Apparently this would have been a nice surprise after we had eaten our entrees?

The whole flash fried redfish was horribly fishy.

One and done for this place.

I have eaten here many times and this was the most disappointing experience of them all. Food came out cold. Dish sent back and all they did was microwave for a minute. My guest meal came out over cooked and dry. Really disappointed in the entire meal.

Very small portions of grouper and red fish. Poor value at $29 per entrée. BBQ oysters were good (but nowhere near grilled oysters that other restaurants serve). Good bread putting. Service adequate. I'm done with all Brennan restaurants.

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.

Last minute double-date in search of Raw Oysters and not wanting to stand in line at ACME or Felix's. The rest of the food and drink were on spot as well as the oysters, although they should have been thoroughly washed before opening--only drawback.

Get the tuna bowl! So good -- definitely not traditional New Orleans cuisine but super delicious. The crab claws and bbq oysters were also great and drinks were delicious.

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!
