Seafood
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.

*Please be advised: in accordance with current City of New Orleans health restrictions, anyone 12 years of age and older must provide proof of at least one dose of an approved COVID vaccine or negative PCR test within 72 hours to enter any indoor dining establishment.

    Seaworthy is super small and cramped. The service was superb so it gets a 5 for that. The food was pretty good not great so 4 stars there. The noise level was insane. It was 5:30 on a Sunday and I couldn’t believe how loud it was. Me and my husband had to raise our voices to talk to each other and that’s just not enjoyable to me. Other than that it was a pretty good experience. I got the lobster roll but I tried my husband crawfish roll and it was definitely better than the lobster. Not sure how that’s even possible but it’s true. I’ve also had lobster rolls in Boston so they just don’t stand a fighting chance in Nola when it comes to lobster rolls. Lol.

    We had an amazing time trying as many things on the menu as possible! The Ida Baby oysters were seriously the best I have ever had! This was my second time going and I actually came back for the chilled shrimp but found so much more to fall in love with! You have to try the sourdough bread with anchovy butter - so unexpected and delicious! We were actually served by the manger Moke and she really made the experience unique and genuine! Will recommend to anyone and everyone!

    The noise level was terrible between all the hard surfaces and the four women at the table next to us were so LOUD we had to ask them a number of times to lower their voices. I am convinced that anyone under 35 has a hearing issue!

    I have to say, I am so disappointed in our experience at Seaworthy. We have only heard wonderful things, and in our party we practically ordered half of the menu. Not a single menu item stood out to us. The ceviche was tough and lacking in flavor, the crab fingers were sparse (though the broth was by far the best thing at the table). The oysters were a mixed experience, but they were well-shucked. The chilled shrimp were tough and didn't taste fresh. The crab cakes didn't even rank with the most basic dive bar crab cake (honestly, I've had better made with canned crab). The drinks were not well balanced and the wine selection was horrible (actually the first time in my life I've sent a glass of wine back to the bar). The burrata salad and mussels were the highlight of our meal - but I will rank this meal as the worst at this price point I've ever experienced (and we are not strangers to fine dining). As a group from a land-locked state, I am so disappointed in the quality of the seafood. The service was also a mixed experience, as we frequently had to remind our server what we ordered. That being said, the staff (including the host, our server and the gentleman running food) were all friendly. I would not return nor would I recommend this restaurant to others. This was by far the worst dining experience I've experienced in NOLA, where better food can be had for an eighth of the cost and from a street vendor.

    Our server, Quincy, was fantastic. He was knowledgeable on the menu and various oyster types and made great recommendations. He was quick, personable and everything we wanted in a server. The oysters were amazing, both raw and charbroiled. The crab legs were delicious as well. 10/10 recommend.

    Very disappointing! It’s been awhile since coming back ie prior Covid. The level of service and 2nd flr dining area became a battle of who can talk the loudest. Five tables placed in a very small space while sun blaring through window and in your eyes. When inquiring waitress was like “oh well”. I would describe experience as save your money!

    Cute spot. Solid staff. Top spot in area for oysters and cocktails. Seemed to be advertised as a more secluded romantic spot but that wasn't the case. Incredibly drunk patrons, obnoxiously shouting, ruined any sort of vibe the place was going for. Oysters were great, some of the best I’ve had. The rest of the food was decent at best and not worth the price. Crab cakes were pretty awful. Staff was helpful and seated us elsewhere, which was nice. Might go again if I want to have a sloppy oyster outing. But don’t take a date here.

    The restaurant is adorable, very cute. Perfect for after work or a drink with friends or a date. Unforunately the wine options were a bit bizarre and not the best with seafood; the oysters were also fairly bland (and we tried many of them!). Nice atmosphere, average food.

    Service was subpar and slow and not tentative. Food was underwhelming compared to other ace establishments. Seafood tower was sad. A few oysters and four shrimp on a two tier tower…very odd and cheap. Totally surprised based on previous experiences w ace properties. Total bummer.

    It was our anniversary. I use to come here every year during Jazz Fest due to the food and ambiance. Sadly that won’t continue. The portions are SO small for 90% of the items. We ordered dishes and still left there hungry. Our server and the ambiance was perfect! But sadly the food experience was not the same. Also the new dishes they have now are not as great. Need to bring back some of the older dishes - blue crab toast, the one with the shrimp/grits..etc. Very disappointed :(

    Small portions and disinterested service were experienced at Seaworthy during our visit. The menu emphasizes oysters, which don't interest us, so we ordered four of the Chilled & Cured and Small plates as the online menu featured a whole fish for two that lured us in as we don't eat meat but wasn't available on our visit. The Warm Sourdough wasn't available either, so we pivoted to the French bread (four small slices for $4). The bottled wine is all in a narrow $60-80 range except for one, so we ordered glasses, two each. No desserts were on the menu or offered, so for a $150 tab we left hungry and disappointed.
