Food was excellent. Service was unsurpassed - loved the crawfish & corn chowder. The shrimp & Grits were exquisite. Let’s not forget the escargot & endless bread!

Second time my wife and I have eaten here. We had the seafood pasta which was excellent. We also thoroughly enjoyed the crawfish cornbread. My wife was a little less than fully enthralled with her gumbo. Would definitely eat here again.

Prices were high and server barely came over to the area. Food was good though. Would not recommend to people who are on a budget.

We had a wonderful lunch. The grilled oysters and the food were delicious and our server Ashley was very nice and attentive. We were seated outside as requested. The ambience was nice. Most of the staff was friendly. The hostess could have been more welcoming, but other than that it was great. Thank you.

Everything good except they did not check for vaccine status as required by the city. That was disappointing.

We went on a Friday night on business. Again they had someone at their piano playing and they sat us right next to him. You cannot have a conversation and I had them move us (they did in a couple minutes, but to a table by the server station). Their restaurant is to small to have the piano and singer, even for the weekends and probably isn't needed to help. They should consider dropping it due to their room size

We always enjoy the food and atmosphere immensely! The crawfish Mac 'n cheese and gumbo are among our favorites! We typically just order 4-6 appetizers and soupier the whole meal as there is so much variety and flavor.

Although they are still understaffed, the only thing they did not have were oysters. I had the Salmon and my wife had the Redfish and bother were delicious. We have never had a bad meal or service at Superior Seafood. We are luck to live in walking distance from this and other great restaurants. I guess that why we live in New Orleans with all the politics and hurricanes that try and chase us away. But I have to say this last Hurricane IDA got us thinking about moving.

Service was great! But other than that... no oysters due to Hurricane (which isn't their fault and I totally understand, but bummer!), burnt shrimp brochettes that were completely charred and black for $31 (sent back), small portion of Spinach & Artichoke Dip. Crawfish & "Crab" Bisque with no crab in it. Really disappointing Superior experience, not sure I will return anytime soon.

They have been having issues with keeping entrees warm. They also brought back the same fries after we sent them back for being ice cold.

The overall atmosphere of the restaurant was very amazing the staff was very polite and cordial our server was very prompt and checked on us frequently throughout our experience this is our first time dining here to celebrate me and my boyfriends birthdays but on the downside we personally do not care for the flavoring of the fold it was very bland and taste list I tried the gumbo My biggest hit for this restaurant is to try to season their food a little bit better no one wants to go to a restaurant and get bland food but you have A1 service in ambience in my book

This was my first time here and I must say the service was superb, Jina was excellent from the time we sat down to the time we left. Jina was very knowledgeable of both the food and drink choices, she even made additional recommendations. The food was absolutely amazing, very hot and came out on time. Huge THANK YOU for making my first time experience a great one.
