I’m a regular at Superior Seafood, and I always take out-of-town guests here - the happy hour 50 cent oysters, half off house wines, and discounted frozen drinks deal is the best in town. Plus, the service has always been excellent and the regular-priced menu options are really reasonable (and delicious) for a classic New Orleans dining experience.

Today our waiter was excellent - I’m sorry that I didn’t catch his name to give him a shoutout. I have only 2 very minor complaints: 1.) our salads came out after our entrees, so there was a long gap between our appetizer and the rest of our meal and 2.) my blackened fish came with crawfish risotto, which lacked flavor and also seemed disproportionately small compared to my portion of fish. Otherwise, everything was great, and my dad and sister cleaned their plates and loved it!

We usually really enjoy this restaurant, but our Mothers Day dinner ( we should have known) was plagued by poor service and a kitchen that was overwhelmed.
Over 30 minutes to get our drinks and food arrived 1 hour and 30 minutes after we arrived. And our order was full of minor but irritating mistakes, items not included, one dinner not delivered at all. Our server was very nice but probably a brand new hire. The manager noticed our dilemma and gave us a nice discount on the meal.

We will return, but first for a mid week lunch that should have our usual excellent experience.

Holidays are difficult for any restaurant. Management made the difference in our future return. A very pleasant atmosphere, a French bistro type of decor, attractive and well located. Just avoid major days of celebration!

My party of 10 arrived 1.5 hours before our reservation therefore we understood there would be a wait. The problem was we watched an empty table (larger enough for 10) sit empty the entire 1.5 hours when asked if the empty table was ours and if so could we be seated we were informed that yes the table was ours however the waitress was in the bathroom preparing for us. Upon being seated we waited over an hour for bread (had to remind the waitress 3 times) and 2 hours for our entree's and to top it off all meals were barely warm when the arrived to the table. When spending over $600 for meals one expects and should receive better service and food.

Disappointed, this wss my frist time and will be my last time. We ordered raw oysters and a oyster platter. The platter arrived 5 minutes after we ordered and before the raw oysters came.
Thr platter was cold, the oyster were smaller than a quarter. The french fries were cold and greasy. I sent it back only to receive the order back again the same.

I insisted on another order. Our experience was horrible. Nothing good to say.

Food was not great. The 3 shrimp andouille brochettes were small and burnt. The sauce on the blackened fish Napolean was watered down. The strawberry fields salad lacked taste. The hostess was also not friendly and clearly didn’t want to be there. Our server was nice and the overall atmosphere was good, but we won’t be going back for another try.

Ridiculous that Superior Seafood doesn't have a second person at the desk welcoming people and seating people. The woman working there the night we were there was literally RUNNING to seat people and come back to her station. It was a mad house . . . .

Part of 3. The tuna ahi salad was excellent. The salmon was very good. The Pasta del Mar was awful, with uninspired pasta sauce, 4 good and fresh mussels and five medium seemingly frozen shrimp as only seafood -- very disappointing dish.

Slipped incredibly. Server forgot salads.
Escargot lacked garlic. Shrimp brochettes were dry, burnt and inedible. Mussels lacked flavor. Filet was dry and tasteless. Burger was dry and lacked seasoning, served with wilted piece of lettuce and a few onion bits. Frites were soggy - not twice cooked as a quality bistro would.
College frat and sorority hangout. Place to take your parents.
Avoid- too many quality restaurants in New Orleans to put up with this foolishness.

We often take out of town guests to superior because we believe it is a great New Orleans experience for a restaurant. This was the first time that the service was as slow as it was, but I give them the benefit of the doubt that maybe they were shorthanded. Just never experienced it like we did this time, but we will definitely be back!

We enjoyed a lovely streetcar ride right to the restaurant and were promptly seated at the time of our reservation. The waiter gave incorrect information, never looked any of us in the eye, was dismissive of my friend's statement that her fish was bad, and interrupted our conversation whenever he came to the table. The cocktails were unimpressive & the wines below par yet priced like better wines.

Garden district spot when you want to get out of the Quarter or CBD. Busy, casual place. Service is merely adequate in a city in which service is highly valued. Young staff throughout (hostess, waiters, sommelier). Fresh or featured items were good (chargrilled oysters; softshell). Regular menu items were only ok (redfish and risotto). Merely adequate wine and beverage lists. Got the feeling my Open Table reservation placed me squarely in a "social Siberia" table with the college kids. You are out of place with a coat, slacks, sports coat and/or dress.
