Perfect patio lunch - Ethan and Aaron took great care of us. Beet and arugula salad with fried oysters, crab chowder, gumbo, and blackened redfish with crawfish were wonderful! Never disappointed here!

Turn the music down! I regret bringing the business group here because it is just too noisy of a place to have a meaningful discussion. Food and service were good.

Flounder too salty. Everyone chatting bouncing off ceiling and walls. Coffee mediocre. Spinach dip, so little spinach. Salsa watery. Shame on Superior Grill. Sam’s has a great Salsa. Cut back on salt to flavor. Buy local coffee: this is NOLA (CDM).

Love Superior seafood. I was craving red meat last night and ordered the strip steak, which was just ok. Everyone else had seafood and their dishes were outstanding. I love the ambience at Superior Seafood.

Be poor service from our waiter. Cold fries with hot sandwich. Dessert ordered but never delivered. Waiter was busy with a big party and completely ignored our table.we are not going back albeit the oysters were great, but who can mess up fresh oysters?

Have been to Superior Seafood before for brunch but this time it was different -- restaurant was moderately busy but not many in our area. Service was not great. Server only came to table 4 or 5 times during our 2.5 hr brunch and it took 1 hr for her to get our food order. Drinks were great as always. Food just okay.

With NOLa having Covid Vaccine card or 72 hour requirement your options are limited if you are from out of town. We called ahead and reserved an outdoor table. Our meal was delicious, our server was great and attentive even though they were very busy. Will defiantly visit again when back in NOLA. The locals are very lucky to have such a great spot off the trolley line to enjoy French inspired cuisine

They have jacked up their oyster prices 100% since last year. 50 cent oysters used to be amazing, then went to 75 cents, now a dollar during happy hour. Now just a meh deal. Used to go once a week, now we’ll go once every couple of months. Would rather go to Pascals for the same price

Went for breakfast. The waitress was inattentive, took a whole to return the table to check after breakfast was brought to the table. My husband needed a few condiments. By the time she returned, the breakfast was cold and inevitable.
However, It is worth driving to St. Charles to taste their charbroiled oysters. I think it is still number 1.

Everything about our visit was outstanding! Ambiance, wine list, food, and service. Our fantastic server, Taylor, gave us excellent advice on choosing our entrees (tip: Grilled Red Snapper over Superior Grits) and we all went wild for the Fried Alligator appetizer! The Crème Brûlée dessert is not to be missed!

Meeting daughter and new boyfriend for first time. Drinks were great. Raw oysters good. Grouper good. Everything else (escargot, grilled oysters, filet mignon and sides were sub par. The Gumbo (terrible) and bbq shrimp (mushy and awful sweet sauce) were just awful. We ate it all because it was late and we were starving. Alligator bites were literally the only “tasty” item and you only got four decent sized pieces and a bunch of scraps and scrimps of fried dough. Would never recommend or eat there again. Such a disappointment. Also so loud we could not even have any sort of conversation. Martinis were good and service was good.

The best oysters I ever had. Amazing appetizers, especially the crawfish mac & cheese. Outstanding service. Unfortunately the meal ended on a disappointing note. We heard they have great profiteroles, but it was just regular store-bought ice cream. My husband’s even had a chunk of ice in it, but the pastry was old and tasteless, like they made it days ago. But definitely go because everything else was amazing. A beautiful place, and I will be dreaming about those sweet, juicy raw oysters.

Normally very fast and very good, today’s service was painfully slow and the food was sub-par, soup was cold. A very disappointing meal to say the least, all blamed on a “large party” that we never observed in the building.

We were there to celebrate a milestone birthday. The restaurant was packed to capacity but you would have never known. We received excellent service. Food was served timely and tasted exceptional. I’ve recommended this restaurant to other before and will continue to do so. Out of so many places in New Orleans to eat, this is one that stands out.
