Grilled Oysters were bland and so was the flounder...the size of the dishes were a little petite and although they were fresh they just lacked any sort of kick...I don’t think I would go back

Server was great! It was pretty busy for a Wednesday so may have affected things. We ordered raw oysters, a salad, and scallops to share and the scallops came out before

The food was great, the service was excellent. We got there just at the tail end of the happy hour, so a bottle of wine was half-price. But, wow, why do restaurants have to be so loud? Don't people come to a restaurant to enjoy food and to have a conversation? What is the point of forcing them to yell at each other? I cannot recommend this place to someone for just that reason. There are LOTS of places in New Orleans where the food is just as good, and you don't need ear plugs.

Whichever table we were seated at, I felt as though that was the best table in the house. My parents came to visit me for Mothers Day and mom wanted traditional New Orleans style fare. You guys didnt disappoint. The oysters, grouper, risotto, the roddy diaz; all of it was delicious. Service we present but not overbearing.
Thank you so much for accommodating my request of being in a quieter area so I could catch up with my parents.
10/10 you guys!

We were seated in a booth indoors. As soon as the cocktails arrived a swarm of insects showed up sitting on glasses, etc. We were reseated outside very efficiently. Kitchen was having an off day and our shrimp and scallops dishes were overcooked and burnt black on the outside. Servers were polite.

Maybe it was because it was mothers day.......we waited an hour and a half for our food. Had to gulp it down in ten minutes and rush off to make our concert. Thought I had allotted plenty of time. The service was indifferent. Not the waitresses fault. They were under staffed, the too few wait staff was busing the tables as well. The food was acceptable but I better fir the price. I had grilled shrimp with Corn Maque Choux Rissotto. Gummy rice with a handful of roasted corn bits red bell pepper, more of a pilaf and not terribly fresh. The grilled shrimp themselves however were nothing less than superb, only five of them, but admirably prepared. My wife had the fish with spinach and mashed potatoes, and it was good. Fish well seasoned and freshly grilled.

Food was good! We had crawfish beignets, crawfish mac n cheese, Hangover Potatos, Tchoupitoulas Chicken. Portion size was reasonable for price. Frozen Mimosa was delicious, very smooth. Soft drinks are expensive at $3 each. Service was less than average, maybe she was having a bad day. Had a reservation but table was not ready for another 15 min.

Our server did not try and ask if we wanted to even order desert
When our bar drink were empty she just looked at them and ran off

I think she was happier chatting up people her own age

I have never had a bad experience at Superior except the other night when I went. The service was excellent but the food was not tasty like I remember it to be. Granted it was in 2019 when I first started eating at Superior but the remember the food being Awesome! Our food was not hot at all, it tasted like it was sitting out for awhile before the waiter came and brought it to us. The oysters was very hot but, it did not have taste to it. It will not discourage me for going back and try it out again because I do love the Frozen Pomegranate Mojito!! That will always be AWESOME!!

Our waitperson, Kendall is friendly, very patient and professional. Attentive and not overbearing. Enjoyed drinks, two courses and dessert. Entrees were more than sufficient to serve us again the next day. Whenever I’m in NOLA I will continue to make an effort to return.

Excellent food and service. We were delighted that our request for the closed patio seating was indulged since the noise in the dining room is quite "energetic". But that was to be expected in such a deservingly popular place

I gave a one-star rating for service simply due to our waitress. The other waiters and waitresses were awesome. She was so bad that we laughed about it. Hopefully, she won't stay there too long.

One of our favorite places in New Orleans. Food and atmosphere are amazing, especially on the covered porches. The Benson sandwich is one of the best I’ve had in my life and the grouper with crawfish over roasted corn and potatoes is life changing.
