A mid week get away and thanks to Trip Advisor, our best most delicious meal. The wait staff was so attentive. The food was so elaborately prepared. Soft lighting and wonderful atmosphere. We made reservations through TA and will be going back.

Great service, great food, great experience!! Nice wine list & menu had a very nice selection of entrees. No wonder it's listed #1 on trip advisor. Lived up to the hype.

Get a reservation because it is always busy. If you don't have a reservation sit at the bar. All the hot appetizers are fantastic. The smoke oyster is my favorite, next is the crab cake and pork belly. I'm not crazy about the cold appetizers....More

Food was good but it felt like we were being cycled through so they could feed as many people as possible in one night.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

Description
Experience the cuisine that has created raving fans of local diners and national and local food critics alike. Chef Tenney Flynn (two time winner of "Chef of the Year" in New Orleans Magazine) ensures the highest quality seafood by flying in products from around the globe and featuring only the best from local waters - both at their seasonal peak. This commitment to freshness and variety are two of the many reasons GW Fins prints its menu daily and has received numerous glowing reviews in The Times-Picayune (4 beans), Food & Wine, Southern Living and Esquire magazines. We look forward to serving you soon so we may learn what you think.
