Excellent bartenders, and very good seafood.

These are the kind of bartenders to whom you can say, "I like tequila and I like sweet cocktails," and they will whip something up to match your taste. They really know what they are doing, and when you combine that with the solid seafood menu, it makes for a great experience. I actually went back... read more

Faced with a sign that indicated one should "Wait to be Seated," we waited for a host to help us for 10 minutes. I finally went into the dining room and found her there only to be told it would be 10 to 20 minutes for a table despite the fact there were several empty (she said they needed to... More

We came during a busy happy hour for a drink and then stayed for dinner, eating at the bar. Drinks were good and so was dinner and dessert. Our bartender provided good service considering how busy he was.

My friends and I did EXTENSIVE research to see who had the best Pimm's Cup. Kingfish is the winner! We found this place just by happenstance. (Random discovery is becoming much more difficult in the Quarter in recent years.) We were there for some drinks and appetizers. We ended up staying quite a while. The bathrooms are clean!

One can quickly become parched and famished while walking around the french quarters. Fortunately for us, we stumbled across Kingfish. Immediately inviting with its clean, bright, sleek bar we ventured in. The pleasantries did not end with the decor, the drink menu was impressive to say the least. We initially settled for a french pearl and a bloody mary- both... More

We discovered Kingfish on a website for local dining/ very excited re our choice. We arrived and our waiter was friendly and informative. First we were told they were out of rabbit ( our first choice) due to cooking issues with roaster. Then was told they were out of duck shortly after/ my choice. We settled for other entrees. Our...

There are endless choices of restaurants in New Orleans and choosing one for dinner can be overwhelming. We dined at Kingfish on the recommendation of a friend and we were not disappointed. From the time we walked in the door to a lengthy welcoming bar we were treated wonderfully by our waitress Pamela who answered questions on their extensive menu... More

Service was so slow. I had an hour and a half for lunch and had to leave because we never got our food and waiter never checked on us.

It was our last afternoon in NOLA and we just wanted to sit and reflect on a great long weekend when we found ourselves in front of Kingfish-- the bar looked very inviting so we went in and had a delightful hour or so chatting with a terrific bartender that took great pains in creating everyone's drinks. Ice was smashed... More

Kingsfish was on the list of bars to stop at while bar/restaurant hopping through the French Quarter on a Sunday. We planned to end up there during happy hour (from 3:30pm-6:00pm) to catch their specials, which are half off brews & wine by the glass plus cheapie appetizers. We all grabbed beers and split the bacon-wrapped stuffed jalapeños, french fries... More
