Everything was wonderful. The location, the table, the ambience, the service, the food, the wine list. Only minor disappointment was the Creme Brûlée. Would definitely go back.

Lovely evening. This restaurant serves my husband’s favorite gumbo. I had the double cut Cheshire pork chop for my main course and it was certainly enough for two (perhaps three) people! Delicious.
Alex the waiter was very helpful and personable.
Will go again soon.

The food was stupendous. The ceviche was very fresh with clean crisp flavors. It was fruity with just the right amount of heat and the herbs were perfect. The soft shell crab was very large and crisp. The "vinaigrette" is more of a relish and is a very good accompaniment to the dish. I only wish it had more remoulade on the plate to dip the crab. The whole stuffed fish was incredibly delicious. The Bienville like stuffing was very tasty and did not overwhelm the fish. All in all, this was one of the best meals we have had in quite sometime and look forward to returning. Now then, the service. The servers were very slow to do check backs if they did them at all. When they did it was usually by the time we were finished with our plate. Had they checked back I would have asked for a side of remoulade for the crab. This is odd as the staff was overly eager to clear our plates. Twice we had to tell them that we were not finished yet. Also, great food is not something that is "worked on." If my knife and fork are not placed down on the side of my plate I am probably still "enjoying it." I don't think a beer glass is the proper vessel for bottled water. My server didn't even notice that after he poured into the pint glass, I poured into my wine glass. He then repeatedly filled the pint glass. That's just lack of focus and not paying attention to detail. With four tables in the restaurant, the staff should have been more focused on their guests than talking amongst themselves at the line. And lastly, please give them new aprons or make them wash them. They were gross. My server's apron looked as though it had not been washed in months. Had service been better this would have been 5 stars all around.

Food was delicious. We had fried stuffed soft shell crab, oysters & angel hair pasta, and each a salad. One was grilled romaine & fried oysters and the other was their farmhouse salad. Both very good. Location is kind of out of the way down Fulton Street. But it is worth the walk from anywhere in the warehouse district.

This restaurant was actually the highlight of our most recent trip to New Orleans. Oysters & Angel Hair, Quail la Louisiana appetizers were very good. Wife enjoyed Seafood Chowder. My gumbo was the best of many sampled this trip. Warning, these were served in cast iron bowls, and to say they were served hot would be an understatement (gumbo literally sizzling). Wife had barataria, well prepared. My special-of-the-day entree blew me away: Tomahawk Veal Chop with Alligator Sausage and Fried Oysters. SO good. The Gnocchi with Wild Mushrooms side was big on fungi, small on pasta. Lord, please let this restaurant thrive.

This was my second time dining here while visiting New Orleans, and I was just as impressed as the first time!

The food here is amazing. I was so pleased I brought my friend here to celebrate her birthday. For an appetizer, we shared the beef tartare. We almost didn't get it and that would have been a mistake. It was so, so good. I felt like it was melting in my mouth. I think I enjoyed it even more than my entree (the blackened scallops), which I had no complaints about. It was a good balance of savory, spiciness, and sweet flavors.

The service is excellent. Everyone was so welcoming and accommodating. You get what you pay for. I highly recommend this place.

A quiet, relaxed setting for a romantic evening, night with friends or business dinner. The service was outstanding including regular checks by the host to insure everything was to our satisfaction. The bartender makes some of the best drinks I’ve had in NOLA. The food was outstanding. The portions are large! Share the appetizers.

Overall a great experience— ordered a seafood dish that was not traditional Cajun flavor which was a nice change. I’m a local so on week days the place looks empty, so we were skeptical. T

Restaurant Rebirth (Stupid name) is in a converted warehouse or something similar. The food and service are outstanding. Atmosphere is okay, but not comfortable. Maybe I'm influenced by the many gnats that were buzzing our table. When brought to the waiter's attention, he said it was due to the "nature of the old building." BS

My husband and I have an overall great experience at Rebirth. Our server, Rae (I hope I remember her name correctly) was so welcoming and friendly. The other guy who helped with our table was courteous and equally welcoming. We had the pork belly appetizer and pork chop entree which were both tender and flavorful. However, the sauce was on the sweet side for us, and was wondering if the same sauce was used for both dishes - they tasted quite similar. I loved the garlic sauteed vegetables and both of us enjoyed the Caesar salad with fried oysters, even if we're all oystered out on this trip. We didn't order dessert because we were so stuffed. The restaurant is in the Warehouse District. It looked a bit lonesome on that street but the place is warm and the service is great so what's not to like?

A relatively small restaurant in the warehouse district, it did not disappoint. Service was prompt and efficient. The offerings were interesting and varied. Probably one of the best gumbos in NOLA. The blackened scallops and redfish with their accompanying garnishes proved to be some of the best tastes of the weekend. Be sure to reserve. Would happily revisit this restaurant.

The food was incredible at this off the beaten path establishment. The wait time for the food was a little long but the ambience, food, and service our waiter gave us made up for it. Highly recommend the lamb chops with fried oysters. We were stuffed after dinner but made room for the white chocolate bread pudding. It was equally as delicious.
Perfect place for a date night.
