Better than average for a hotel venue. Food was hit or miss, surprisingly the steak was solid but the seafood was average. Service was fairly attentive but drinks were slow to get refilled.

Disappointed on my food order. Order catfish sliders. There was no taste at all except for the bread
Our server was very busy & so was Borgne. There also were lots of young & energetic young folks
Made environment loud. Hard for us to communicate across the table. I told our server I couldn’t eat it but the plate sat in front of me the whole meal. It was picked up when he brought the check. I requested it be taken off. Before they took it my husband tasted too. He said it didn’t have any taste either. We eat at Borgne frequently when in town. This was not a the best experience Thanks for your time

We got a great table post-Saints game on a super busy Sunday night. Food and service were spot on. The Duck Poppers are a must - seriously, don’t eat here without ordering at least one plate! I’m also impressed with the earth-friendly to go boxes. Great local food, ambiance and fun!

I always like this place. My favorite is the fried oyster, pork belly sandwich. On Saints game day it's an oyster BLT (they don't cook pork belly on game day), which was a bit of a bummer but still delicious. The drinks are amazing. We'll probably keep this game day tradition.

Absolutely amazing! We made reservations before a concert at the Smoothie King center since it’s within walking distance and we were all so happy we did! Started off with the BBQ shrimp, meat pies and stuffed crabs. All delicious! We also had the turkey necks, which we all agreed was one of the the best things we have ever put in our mouths! DO NOT miss out on those!! So, so, so good! Also, our waitress, Bailee, was so accommodating and made our evening out so special and fun!

As a celiac, I’m very limited in what I can eat out. But, at Borgne, I was able to safely eat delicious fried chicken and some of the best braised collard greens I’ve ever eaten!! It was scrumptious and I felt incredible afterwards.

We were seated then ignored for 15 minutes while we watched servers walking around near us. Then all of the sudden we were asked for drinks by two different servers who didn't seem to know who was waiting on us.
Once served, we were interrupted every few minutes by people asking how our dinner was.. annoying. However, the food was good and the restaurant ambience is really cool. I just think a little more communication and better management would have made a big difference in our experience.

We were staying at the Hyatt Regency and while I generally like to avoid clinging to the restaurant at the hotel, we decided that it might be prudent for several reasons. We were headed to the Smoothie King Arena for the Pelican’s Home-opener. I was in a conference until 5pm. We really wanted a place with cajon/creole/NOLA-specific foods AND it needed to be somewhat kid-friendly. Borgne checked all of those boxes. There were crayons and chicken strips for the kids (but my 3 year old also really liked the stuffed crab). The fish-in-a-bag was quite an experience. Things moved a little slowly, but everyone was very kind.

Overpriced for the quality and portion of food served. I was excited to eat here but it turned out to be a typical hotel restaurant. Manager switched waitperson stating she was leaving (she did not leave, saw her all night, she was excellent) and second waitperson was not attentive. There were 3 women in the party and we all shared the same opinion.

Service was too slow for a business lunch. We arrived on time for our reservation and was told that we would have to wait to be seated. Why make a reservation? Apps came out at same time as entrees and one app was missing. When indicated to waitress that there was a missing app, she removed it from the bill and packaged the app for us to go. Ask for ice for water and never received the glass of ice.

I came here the other night with 7 other women. We were in town for a conference. We ordered drinks at the bar before being seated. The drinks were so good, and the service was great. We had the duck poppers - melt in your mouth goodness! Several of my friends ordered "Fish in a Bag" and they couldn't stop raving about it. Its a simple dish, but so much flavor! I had the grilled salad, and oysters...so good. I also had the chocolate angle food cake for dessert and it was well presented and everyone took a bite! We all loved it! I would highly recommend this place. Fantastic food and great service!

The experience was less than satisfying. We reserved the spot for our anniversary dinner, and had no problems checking in and being seated. However our server, whom we didn't even know was our server, walked past us many times before finally stopping and taking our drink order. She also brought us bread with no silverware or napkins, and walked by us several more times before catching on that we were trying to get her attention. The appetizer of duck jalepeno bites was absolutely delicious. Best thing we ate all night. I ordered from the raw bar, a dozen oysters, and my husband ordered the steak and truffle parmesan fries. My oysters came out on very dirty oyster shells, and were only half cut away from the shells. They tasted fine, but the presentation and the way I prefer to eat them was less than optimum. My husband's steak came with butter on top of the steak and an extra side of butter. Our server admitted that it wasn't plated the way she usually saw it, and couldn't explain what it was for. The fries were very soggy and almost cold. The steak was delicious, however. We ordered the Dark Angel dessert, and angel food cake and chocolate mousse concoction, but were only given a tiny piece of cake, with a huge serving of mousse and ice cream. It was visually very unappealing. Our server once again told us that is not how it was supposed to be plated, and was actually much different looking than she had ever seen it. She was very nice and took away our dessert, and brought us drinks, but the overall issues of the dinner far outweighed the drinks. We were left wishing we had spent our anniversary somewhere different. Being out of town for the occasion, we probably won't have an opportunity to revisit, but definitely wouldn't be inclined to after the small but consistent issues.

The food was great and the service was spot on. As a foodie, I loved the Turkey necks, you have to try them. Also, you'll want to get the duck gumbo. Just about everything is excellent. If there was one fault it would be the shrimp was a little done for my taste. But the black drum was amazing!!!!

It was a busy night as Paul Simon was playing around the corner, so the restaurant was packed. We ended up waiting 10 minutes for our table, we made a reservation, but it was a busy night. They ran out of some dishes and the service was Ok. It took awhile to get our drinks and when they took our order they only took half the table's order, then served those drinks, then come back and took the rest of the table's ordered. It was over $200 for 4 of us just for small dishes. So be aware if you are on a budget.

I would go back and try it on another evening.
