Great food. Ridiculous noise level of music causes people to shout, raising decibel level more.

Food and service were bother great. It’s been years since I’ve been there, so I’m disappointed they no longer had seafood gumbo. I absolutely loved it the last time I was there.

Whenever we visit New Orleans (about six times per year), we always dine at Superior Seafood. This time I made my reservation on line for the first time, and it was so easy. When we arrived at the restaurant we were seated almost right away. We had a very nice table for two. Our waitress did a good job. She was patient and professional. My amaretto sour was the best I've ever tasted. My husband had the blackened trout and mach choux (I'm sure I've spelled that incorrectly). Both were fantastic. I had the tuna salad, which was not very exceptional. Too little avocado, too little mango, tasteless tuna, and so little dressing that I almost could not be sure it had dressing on it. Anyway, we will be back because I love the place.

We were celebrating my oldest son's birthday. We were sat in one of the patios. Our server was excellent. He was attentive and had great personality. The food was okay. My son's burger was charred and shrimp and grits were almost nonexistent. The chargrilled oysters lacked flavor. For the price, I expected more. The atmosphere and location are awesome, but I probably wouldn't eat here again.

First time there for brunch and it was so good. The amount of food and the flavor was more than expected. The price was great as well. Hope to get back and enjoy again.

Food is exceptional. Wine and drink selection is very good.
Great atmosphere. A bit loud, so if that’s a consideration, I would recommend going at non-peak hours.
We had a great time.

Superior is usually our go to place when in town. Our last visit was a little disappointing when we walked in the door, and the usual Friday pianist (Phillip) was not there. The service was good, but the food was very salty... close to sending it back. Portions were smaller and prices increased... I’m okay with one or the other, but not both. Noise level was more than I’ve ever heard before. I may need to go back to Commander’s Palace. Change my mind please.

Great food and service, but very loud and it didn't help that we had folks on both sides of us that were really loud and frankly, pretty inconsiderate!

I come here a lot it’s one of my favorite places, though the service good you could tell they were short staffed. There was just a disconnect with server assistant.

We had two appetizers- fried green tomatoes and crawfish cornbread- absolutely delicious. Entree was blackened catfish with crawfish on top- also amazing. Desserts were carrot cake and creme brûlée- both ok but not great. Service was very good- quick and attentive. Would definitely eat there again

This is a restaurant that provides a gastronomic experience that is remembered.

All the food we ordered (a party of three) was sublime and the service was friendly and efficient.

It is a pity that Michlin does not rate restaurants in NOLA: Superior Seafood most definitely deserves a star or two.

Great food & service, pre “Tips” concert.
Had a table of screaming children and oblivious parents, on top of an already noisy Mardi Gras crowd.
We’ll wait until Lent before we return.

The food was great. The service was great. It was really busy and noisy but they honored our request for a quiet area and it wasn’t too bad. The only complaint I have is that I ordered 2 bowls of spaghetti with butter and Parmesan for my kids. I get that it was off menu. But it shouldn’t have come to $18 for the 2 bowls. That’s crazy! Just passing this along to other parents. Otherwise, a great meal!! Oh, and we got happy hour pricing in the main dining room (not just at the bar!)

Loved this restaurant! Excellent food and service! They bring a loaf of fresh bread and real butter to each table. It's amazing! We also enjoyed the char-grilled oysters. I highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely go back.

It was a terrible day for grilled oysters. They were small, poorly seasoned, and inconsistently cooked...overly charred or barely cooked.However the herb crusted redfish was wonderful! Served on a bed of puréed potato’s and beautiful spinach, everything was extremely flavorful. The side house salad was delicious, also. Service was good, but we did get our dinner salad before our appetizers, so the timing was off. I loved the to go container. It was a small plastic type (probably recyclable) and not a bulky paper or, god forbid, styrofoam container. Kudos on that! Warning, it was pretty loud during happy hour, even though we were well away from the bar area.

One of our friends has very specific tastes... management went out of their way to make it right when she was unhappy with her meal.
Everyone else was thrilled with theirs and I was so impressed the service and attention we received. Would definitely recommend!

Failed to provide one of our orders. Delayed the last dish by over 20 minutes. Did not do much to mend the error.
