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.

This was the first place my mom, boyfriend and I had eaten all day. I usually have a good experience here but today was nothing short of horrific. All three of us ordered different meals; however, only my mom and I had the cooked oysters. Three hours later while shopping at walmart my mom and I had terrible stomach problems and spent the rest of the night on the toilet!!! They must not have followed the food handling rules properly and my stomach had to pay the price. Sad day really.

Great brunch! It was crowded and very loud due to the live music. Masks were required, but I wish the hostess would have asked about our vaccine status.

The crawfish beignets were out of this world delicious!! Fried perfection! My husband enjoyed the raw oysters and crawfish bisque and both of us LOVED the warm French bread and butter. I would easily give Superior five stars but we asked for bread pudding snd Creme brûlée to go and it was inedible. I think maybe they were short their pastry that night. Other than that they hit it out of the park.

Nice place to bring family for Sunday brunch. Great Irish coffee and frozen mimosas! Food was good, and you don't have to spend a lot. I would give 5 stars on everything except that the shrimp brochette only comes with 3 shrimp! They were busy but the service was still good.

I come to NOLA on business at least 4 times a year and I have eaten a good many local restaurants. This is my second time here and I had a similar experience last time. The waitresses spent more time waiting on people that they obviously new. I saw one waitress drinking wine at a table with a group of her friends. The service staff acted as if they were at a social mixer rather than work. The food was good but serving size was pathetic. For the price you can find much better food, quantity as well as quality.
