It’s really a superb place but if you made a reservation make sure they don’t give you the first seating option-we had ask for another table After having a reservation made weeks before we had to insist on another table away from the bathrooms! Have to say they finally accommodated us and the rest of the night was spectacular!
Excellent food and service outstanding! Well worth the efforts and monies-Will definitely go back soon!

Great food and attentive service in an intimate, inviting space. Must eats include the seared scallops, gumbo, and the complimentary cornbread. Will return when back in NOLA.

What can we say, another visit, another memorable meal.

From the amazing pork belly, gumbo and great cut of ribeye, Restaurant Rebirth is always spot on. I think we have had everything on the menu and have never been disappointed.

This is the first time that we brought our son and he said he woke up this morning thinking about dinner.

Thank you Manny for making time to stop by our table. We cannot wait for our next trip back to NOLA as you guys are always at the top of our list!

The gumbo is one of the best in all of New Orleans! The chef is very creative. The menu is somewhat limited, but everything that we had was terrific!
This is a small intimate restaurant.

We’re very happy that we decided to dine at Rebirth on our last night in New Orleans. It’s a quaint restaurant. Our waiter was engaging and helped us to navigate through the menu. We started with cocktails and the Ceviche del Dia which is served with fried plantains. The ceviche had a nice, subtle heat to it. My husband had the Double Cut Cheshire Pork Chop. It was cooked perfectly and the sugarcane Creole glaze was to die for. All that it was served with paired perfectly with the pork chop. I enjoyed the Gulf Seafood Al Ajillo. It’s not a Cioppino or a Bouillabaisse but I guess you could say that its similar. The dish was delicious. I relished all of the seafood (fish, shrimp, oysters and crab claws) and the addition of the grape tomatoes to a flavorful sauce. We will definitely return to Rebirth the next time we’re in New Orleans and recommend it to our friends when they visit.

Small, quaint restaurant with excellent service and food! Best gumbo we have had in a long time! We ordered porks, which were excellent, and came with two pork chops, enough to share! Definitely will go back next time in NOLA!

The staff here works beautifully together in a true teamwork that makes everything flow. Food was brought out piping hot. The filet was probably one of the best I’ve ever had. Where it missed the mark for me was I felt it was missing that personal friendly down home vibe. Ambiance felt a little stiff and while the food was good, I felt it was missing something. They definitely need to nix the cornbread. It was extremely dry and after you’ve had the cornbread at Willa Jean, well there is just no topping that. If you are nearby and hungry you won’t have a bad meal, but i wouldn’t go out of my way to eat here again.

FIRST TIME DINNING AT REBIRTH. HAD RESERVATIONS FOR Friday NIGHT AT 8:00 PM.
Took a long time to be served. Waiter and staff were attentive, but long delay in serving. Appetizer was a ceviche and couldn't taste the seafood. My date ordered a pan seared red fish, generous serving and good tasting, but the Gulf Fish del Dia I ordered, a seafood bouillabaisse, had too much Cajun seasoning that numbed my taste buds. Overall 3 stars. New restaurant, so to be fair, I need to try it again in a couple of months.

I would definitely go back, but I’d get gumbo and pork belly and skip the fish of the day. Pork belly was really good- great flavor, greens were good (and I rarely like them) Enjoyed the gumbo (just got to have a few tastes from my husband’s bowl but I’d definitely order it the next time). Fish was just ok- kind of bland. Almost over cooked (just seemed almost dry). Needed something to flavor it up or something. Service was friendly but very slow. It wasn’t busy, but there was an usually long time between courses. All that being said, is go back for the appetizers for sure

Everything at Rebirth is perfectly crafted and each combination of flavors is unique as well as delicious. A restaurant worthwhile if your visiting, and with enough variety on the menu to warrant several returns.

This restaurant exceeded my expectations! The food was exceptional! The service was wonderful!
Everyone loved their dishes! No complaints. They actually thanked me for picking the restaurant for my birthday! Please add the birthday crab claws to the menu! I wanted to come back the next day for the shrimp and eggplant. I actually could have ate everything we had again. 😍

We had a wonderful dinner that did not disappoint. The Gumbo is the best we’ve ever eaten. Romaine salad with fried oysters was unusual and the combination of grilled romaine and crunchy oysters was perfect. The bread pudding was different, dense and worth every calorie. Alex was an attentive waiter that directed us to a perfect menu!

The service was top notch from the moment we walked in the door. Alex was our server and he found that perfect balance of attentiveness without being intrusive. We were celebrating our anniversary and the chef sent out complimentary crab claws which were perfectly seasoned and fried to golden brown perfection. We were pleasantly surprised by the size and presentation of the shrimp and eggplant appetizer. The blackened redfish. Out of this world! Blackened and broiled to perfection. We will be back!

A refreshingly modern take on southern farm to table dining. Everything was delicious. Denver grass fed lamb was the best I've ever had. Double cut pork chop was cooked properly and the perfect blend of savory and sweet. This is 100% a restaurant for Foodies. Upscale dining with a relaxed atmosphere.
