We've been a fan of Greg Sonnier for years, and his menu at Kingfish does not disappoint. This is not a meal for the unadventurous ""i'll have a green salad" eater. Go with an appetite and be prepared to dive into some serious cajun inspired food. I loved the namesake kingfish main course as well as the fish of the... More

We ate at the bar for happy hour, and had something like 6 tapas, including the rabbit gumbo (super dark roux, lovely rich flavour). My biggest memory was of the awesome tipsy television producer who sat next to us, who wanted to explain that she couldn't possibly eat a single carb, and who really wanted four olives for her martini,...

Being a "Foodie", I was looking forward to trying this new restaurant in the French Quarter. The service was wonderful, but the food did not deliver the hype that it had received. The assorted "Cracklings" were unidentifiable and bland. The "Beet Salad" only had a whisper of a grated beet. Two guests had the "Fish on Salt Brick". Great concept,... More

The bar and its' tenders are one of my favorite in N.O. The drinks are imaginative, and each classic has a twist (try Pimm's Cup or Mint Julep to see what I mean). I always order at the bar, so can't rate the dining room or its' staff, but I imagine the experience would be very similar. Bartenders are very... More

We arrived for our reservation to be seated quickly. Brian was a great server who attended to all of our needs.

For those who have followed New Orleans bred Greg Sonnier thru his award wining Gabrielle Restaurant and Windsor Court service, it is no surprise that Kingfish is another remarkable culinary experience with first class service. Among the Louisiana creations, try the Hoppin John Crawfish Salad and any of the seafood or duck offerings. His shrimp and scallops on chese grits... More

I called ahead to be sure they'd be showing the soccer game (World Cup season) and of course they were! We had any seat we wanted nearby a television...but Kingfish's lunch crowd started arriving soon after we did. My fiance ordered the sausage won tons and I the fries...and they were delicious!

This was my second time here and the food was fantastic. Excellent service and the price isn't back either. Our group had a variety of dishes. The rabbit gumbo is the best gumbo in New Orleans possibly. I typically don't care for gumbo down there because they tend to ruin it with tomatoes or other additions that don't belong. This... More
