Seaworthy showcases wild-caught and sustainably harvested oysters from American waters — Gulf Coast, East Coast, and West Coast alike — as well as locally sourced fish and game. The celebrated beverage program offers both classic and proprietary cocktails, with a smart selection of beer and wine.

Set in a classic Creole cottage built in 1832, Seaworthy was opened by Ace Hotel with support from the team at Grand Banks. Please note that we only have stair access to our second and third floor.

Seaworthy culls inspiration from Gulf Coast waterways, the time-worn traditions of Southern hospitality and the legendary exuberance of the city of New Orleans.

    It’s not my absolute #1 favorite but certainly in my top 5. They always have variable choices of raw oysters, & this time I went with Murder Point. Certainly can recommend them. If you like West Coast ones (as opposed to Gulf or Atlantic), they have those too. I went with the chilled & cured choices, getting the combo of ceviche, scallops & amberjack. All very tasty but not overwhelming in portion size. McKittrick Old Fashioned is a wonderful drink. Server was very nice & on point. Great 70’s music playing (haven’t heard the Ohio Players in quite some time!), felt very cozy in there. I still consider it a hidden gem.

    Kitchen was abysmal. Service very very slow. Server tried but was obviously not trained. Did not know to apologize that the oysters, our appetizer, came out after entires (finally) ….after we had to ask where they were, twice. The food was mediocre and it all was EXTREMELY overpriced. Something is very wrong with the restaurant. Wondering if they will be open for long.

    Always get to Seaworthy when in NOLA. The Happy Hour and oyster selection are one of the best in town (or state for that matter). Lots of options and really highlights oysters from other parts of the country. We prefer sitting in bar downstairs, but have eaten upstairs and experience has been very good. Bartenders very engaging and some interesting and tasty options. Highly recommended.

    The food was quite terrible. Clearly they were ready to get us out of there and it’s threw it all together very quickly. We were sat 30 minutes later than our reservation and didn’t take our drink order for another 30 minutes. Terrible experience.

    Came in for our honeymoon, sat at the bar. From the fella shy king oysters to the lovely bar staff, hostess to food runners, service all around was immaculate. Got a few free samples of oysters from around the area, and happy hour was KILLER. If you are a fan of oysters (from both coast) and lovely service, I would highly recommend coming here. Thank you for a lovely experience. Spaces like this are what keep me in the f&b industry ❤️🫡

    Went for Revellion dinner but when no one mentioned it after about 15 minutes we asked and were told they were not offering it (despite them advertising it on their Instagram story no more than 8 hours earlier). The waiter brushed it off and there were no replacements. Hungry, but uninterested in their overpriced and somewhat uninteresting menu, we settled for some oysters (raw and charbroiled) and gumbo. Everything tasted good, the drinks were great and service was fine. It’s hard to not feel a little swindled about the Revellion dinner, though. Almost like it was a ruse to get people in the door only to have to spend more money ordering off of the regular menu…

    My waiter name was Quincy!!! He was absolutely amazing! It was my birthday and he made sure my guest and I were thoroughly taken care of. The chef even came out and greeted us and cut my cake for us. The whole staff was amazing and nice, the food was to die for. I loved everything about Seaworthy and the staff. Thank you so much. I will be back.

    Started out great - wonderful apps/drinks - we were by ourselves since restaurant was pretty empty. But then our server disappeared and no water. We also made the mistake of getting too much fried food and just felt like crap afterwards. So first hour was awesome and then entrees and service just weren’t great.

    The whole point was eating the reveillon that was advertised. We choose one every holiday and was hoping for this one. They called hours before to let us know it would not be offered and something had happened in the kitchen. At that point it was too late to make other plans somewhere else. Our friends and us enjoyed the regular menu offered but would have preferred the special menu. Both for value & it is once a year. All the cocktails were fabulous as usual & the food was delicious. We sing seaworthy praises every time we come. Just a bit disappointed.

    First time dining at a nicer seafood place in New Orleans as I was visiting from CA. Crab claws were tasty but my favorite was the scallops & oyster dish. It was super tasty but the only thing was I could barely find any oysters in it. The fresh oysters were alright but nothing special. Overall enjoyed the meal.

    The host and wait staff were very friendly. The brussel spout dish with shrimp was so good. But, that was it. The fish and chips were greasy, and tasteless. There was only one red wine to choose from, we were seated in the bar area, where the seats (upholstered backless stools) were not comfortable. We were looking for a dining experience, but didn't get it here.

    When eating in New Orleans, there are so many great seafood restaurants. We ended up trying Seaworthy because it was open on Thanksgiving night and had an opening. We won’t be returning. The drinks were pretty tasty, but had too much ice. I really liked the Sherman’s punch, and my husband enjoyed the Holy water. We had the crab claws for an appetizer, and those were pretty good as well. I got the oysters and scallops dish for my entree and was extremely disappointed. It should be an appetizer. There were 3 scallops and 3 small oysters. The oysters tasted bad, and I couldn’t eat them. The scallops and bread were good, just not enough. My husband got the black drum curry special, which was good. Our server did not seem too happy to help us and ready to leave. He brought us the check without asking us about dessert. We were really put off by his demeanor and decided to eat dessert and have more drinks elsewhere.

    Love the setting. Value for money is debatable. Some dishes were great others were soso. Service was correct but cold. I also didn’t like the extra charge for kitchen staff. You are allowed to cancel it but who would bother. The prices should be sufficient to pay kitchen staff proper salaries. What more strange charges can a restaurant come up with to show so-called competitive prices. They add it to the bill as a tax so you end up also paying tips on that part of the bill

    I was there for a small family thanksgiving. We went to visit NOLA just for the holiday, coming from Dallas. Everything about it was superb. Our server was phenomenal, which made our experience 1,000 times even more enjoyable. The food might have been slightly on the salty side, but I’m being picky here to find something to critique. Can’t wait to come back to NOLA to eat here again. Loved it!!

    Not super nice atmosphere. More like a casual bar. Food was good except for the flavorless gumbo which was inedible, cold small and missing nearly all gumbo ingredients. My mama was from New Orleans, don’t feed by garbage soup and call it gumbo. Red snapper fish was very good. Oysters were excellent. Nice beers.
