We sat outside. It was a lovely evening. Our waitress was busy yet her service was great, very personable. We originally had reservations for 4 and our turnout was 5. We didn't have to wait, it was not a problem. The food was tasty. Our table split crawfish mac n cheese which was ok. Two people had the crab bisque, which was rich and creamy and filled with good stuff. Several people shared a beet salad, which was a big hit. Also at our table we had burgers, pork po'boy, chicken Monica and scallops. We did have to wait on bread in the beginning and the whipped potatoes with the chicken were pastey. Oh and dessert was delish. Our table split a flourless chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream and a huge brick of carrot cake. Overall a hit. We'll be back.

We went for happy hour and it was amazing! We each got a dozen raw oysters and a glass of wine for $9.00 a person! We then split a po-boy and they were kind enough to split the sandwich and the side in the kitchen before it came out to our table. The food was wonderful and the server was great! I've already been telling everyone you need to take the street car to this restaurant, it is so worth it!

Definitely make a reservation! This place would have gotten 5 stars across the board, except our oyster appetizer order took forever to come to our table. However, once we guys got them, they were worth it! Great food. Great service.

Both the food and the service were excellent. My wife and I had different shrimp pasta dishes and both were very good. I would recommend having reservations. We were there on a Tuesday evening and the place was full.

I was solo for dinner, a night of freedom while friends attended Wrestlemania. The food was amazing. The service was on point, being how I was by myself. I have been telling everyone that I had one of the best meals of my life here. Can not wait to go back next time in NOLA.

Nice restaurant with great service in the Garden District of New Orleans. Was definitely worth the trip from the French Quarter where I was staying. Excellent local oysters and delish shrimp dinner. I would surely keep it on the “A” list for my next visit to the “Big Easy.”

Loved the char-grilled oysters! We got to sit in the side area away from most of the noise - although having a piano playing is hardly noise. Easy, immediate seating.

Always fun to eat here and you can't go wrong with anything on the menu! Especially loved the frozen pomegranate mojito and pecan-crusted drum! Our server was overwhelmed with too many tables so service wasn't great, but he was very friendly and did his best to come by as often as he could. Overall, I love this place and always bring friends and family here when they come into town to visit.

We chose this restaurant for dinner on one of the two nights we spent in New Orleans, and we were very pleased that we did. The food was excellent, and the service efficient and friendly.
Our only problem was the difficulty in holding a conversation, as the noise level was high.
Despite that we totally enjoyed the evening, which we were sharing with a granddaughter studying at Tulane whose friends had suggested it.

One of the best seafood places I have ever eaten at! The restaurant was quiet and the server was attentive and immediate! Not to mention, the alligator bites, crawfish mac/cheese, and the chicken biscuits were to die for. I wish there was one in my hometown. Everyone needs to try Superior Seafood!

We had an amazing time! Our waiter Mark was fantastic! We live in South Florida, we know and love seafood.... that said, this was the best meal we’ve had in a long time! Started with a dozen oysters, crab stuffed mushrooms and a shrimp cocktail. The oysters were huge, fresh and delicious. The mushrooms were great, could’ve used a little more crab in the stuffing, but nothing to really complain about. The shrimp cocktail also delicious. They were peel and eat and gigantic. We had the scallops and the pasta del mer as our entrees. Both were delicious, fresh and cooked perfectly. We celebrated a birthday and without a hitch the birthday carrot cake was on the table along with a great candle and a song actually sung with a smile. The cake was so good! I wish they had a location near us in Florida! We sat on the patio and the noise level, temperature and views were great! Overall a perfect evening!

We wanted a good seafood place for our last meal before leaving NOLA and didn't want to fight the crowds in the Quarter so picked this place. Good choice. Not only is the building a nice old place but the food was very good. Stuffed mushrooms could have used more crab, but the fish of the night - drum- was excellent as were the vegetables that came along. And unlike most NOLA places, a salad was included! Good food for reasonable prices and we got the local fish we were seeking.

It was Easter so very busy. Service was good but food took a long time, kitchen had trouble keeping up with the volume of people. Cocktails were so so. Blackened catfish with ettoufe sauce was excellent as was a seafood pasta. The drum fish was average. When making reservation we noted it was a bday celebration and no acknowledgement was made to the fact.

We were really looking forward to our meal at Superior Seafood but unfortunately, it was very disappointing. We initially had to ask someone to help us after sitting at the table for over 10 minutes watching servers go by with no acknowledgment of us. When we were helped the server seemed irritated and didn't bother to talk to us about specials, happy hour, etc. When we received our food one entrée was missing the side item and the oysters were extremely gritty. Not the expected occasional piece of shell but covered in grit where we had to scrape them off to eat. It just wasn't a great meal and in a city with so many exceptional restaurants I wouldn't bother wasting a meal here.

Service was not very good. We were a party of 2 that got sat in a section where our waitress also had a party of 12. However, our drinks took 10-15min to get to us from the bar. We didn’t get any bread before our meal when we saw other tables with it. Our entrees were served before we ever got our salads. Ordered a glass of wine and it was severely under poured. Blackened catfish came with crawfish etouffe but had trouble finding the crawfish. I haven’t had this bad of service here before so maybe it was just bad luck.
