Server Randall was great- food was outstanding- highly recommend!
It was wonderful. Appetizer to dessert. Filet was amazing. Husband got yellow fin tuna and bread pudding!!!! 😍😍
First time visit to New Orleans.
Went there because of a recommendation. Food was great. Much better than Commanders Palace.
Service at the table was excellent. My only complaint would be the two young ladies at the front desk were mude and impolite. I nearly left the restaurant. We were there a little early and there was quite a few tables empty but we had to wait til they got around to us. Not sure I would ever go back again because of this poor treatment.
Excellent! Will go again next time we are in town!
This was the highlight of our dinning experience while we were in New Orleans. Everything was perfect. My friend and I were both celebrating birthdays and were treated like royalty making our celebration extra special. The food was fantastic and the service impeccable.
The service was amazing!! The food was something we will remember for a long time!! Our server was out of this world awesome!! His name is Kenneth. He made our dinner there extra great!!
Fantastic restaurant. We had dinner there two nights in a row.
This was my second visit over the past few years. Fabulous.
Great food and service! Had the sheepshead and crab cakes both superb. Great wine selection; found a great new cal cab. Booth seating was sub par...cracked vinyl bench with worn springs to the point of uncomfortable. Interior could use an update across the board.
Service was outstanding and perfectly accommodated our delayed arrival.
For the price of the meal, the food was not worth it. Businesses trips are ideal since companies will foot the bill, as was in my case.
It is a great restaurant. Impeccible food. Marvin was a great waiter
Excellent food and service. Highly recommend. Busy so you better reserve.
Wonderful restaurant! Recommended by a local bartender. Fine dining experience without the stuffiness. Many different seafood options. I recommend the lobster dumplings & the scalibut. We were equally surprised by the terrific filet my husband had. My husband works for a fine dining steakhouse & the filet was on point. A reservation is a must since they book up pretty fast. I would book at least 2 nights in advance.Thank you for a wonderful evening for our last night in NOLA.
5 star service and 5 star food. You can’t go wrong with this place.
Best meal, service and venue we had in New Orleans. The fish was outstanding.
I first visited GW Fins in 2016 during my first visit to New Orleans and I'd been dreaming about it since. Upon return to the city in November 2018, I made sure to book a reservation for dinner with my girlfriend while we were in town. The service is always spectacular and the food is the best in the city. We spent two and a half hours enjoying much of what GW Fins has to offer. We delighted in the lobster dumpling and tuna taco share plates, the handcrafted cocktails, the brûléed fig salad, fantastic local fish entrees, and the salty malty ice cream pie.
I overheard a group looking for a "fancy" dinner recommendation and inserted myself into their conversation to recommend GW Fins. I would again recommend to strangers, to friends, to family, and I do plan on dining here anytime I'm in New Orleans.
Probably the best total dining experience I've enjoyed in years.
This is hands down the best Restraunt in the entire city. Everything is so fresh and there menu is different every day. From their lobster dumplings to there bbq shrimp (best I’ve ever had) to their fin wing everything on their appetizer menu was nothing short of phenomenal. As for their entrees fresh caught seafood with spectacular sauces and sides sets this Restraunt aside from the rest. Their desert Salty Malty Pie is a complete game changer. This Restraunt sets the bar so high for other restaurants to try to top. There is too many great things to write. This Restraunt is hands down the best in the area and I recommend it to everyone
Always a pleasure. It was my second time there and it was just as great as the first time. Service A++.Food and drinks A++
Amazing seafood restaurant! Service is impeccable and I would return there anytime!
This place is fantastic. We come every year for our Anniversary. They always make it special. The food and service are outstanding. Highly Recommended!!! 5 STARS
One of the best meals we’ve ever had!! Exquisite service and food. Highly recommend, but be sure to book ahead of time.
Delicious, well prepared seafood. Cocktails are superb. Service, especially Gary and Travaille, was impeccable
Very nice place for a romantic dinner.
GW Fins did not disappoint, with it's excellent menu of locally sourced fish and seafood. Great wine list, upscale interior, roomy seating. I will recommend this spot to friends for a special meal out.
Outstanding food and service. Our favorite restaurant in NOLA
This place is awesome! I told them my wife had her 30th birthday and they took great care of us! Alexis was great!
Possibly the best seafood and desserts we’ve had! The scalibut, scallops, and drum were delicious; and the salty malty ice cream cake... OMG!!
Food and service was just exceptional! This is our second celebration at GW Fins and the staff made our visit a special one. Visiting New Orleans? Forget all the other recommendations and make GW Fins your first stop.
My favorite place to eat IN NEW ORLEANS
BEST FOOD ATMOSPHERE N SERVICE
Great place for fresh fish caught that day! Wonderful flavors and helpful service.
The food had so much flavor and was delicious!! We cannot wait to go back!
More was expected given the hype and frankly the attitude the place gives off. Wine list is well done, menu listings inviting, pricing is acceptable, table service (Kenneth) was solid. Execution - Thursday night - was off. Fish was over cooked, snapper and house specialty as well as grouper. Not worth a repeat unfortunately until they rediscover what drove them to initial success.
Wonderful food, great service! Very knowledgeable wait staff!
Food was fabulous! Loved that the waiter made honest suggestions, the barbecue shrimp appetizer with goat cheese grits was lick the bowl delicious! This is not like any barbecue you’ve ever tasted. Also it’s hard not to devour several of the biscuits they bring around,they are almost a shortbread biscuit. The fish, scalibut, was amazing too. We were too full for dessert,we just finished our biscuits! Service was excellent!
We had the most exceptional service from Joe. Our family enjoyed several appetizers, entrees, a couple of bottles of wine, desserts, and dessert cocktails. The service staff operated like an orchestra— every detail was perfect! We will definitely return on future trips to NOLA!
Absolutely amazing food and service. Everything about GW Finns is first class. Best seafood by far in NOLA
Food and service good. Place is let down by the poor hostess service when you arrive
Food was fantastic and service was great!! Loved it!!
