Good atmosphere and really good food

The sampler platter was fantastic! Their red beans and rice might be the best in Nola! I tried the inside out pork nachos too which are made with pork rinds instead of tortilla chips, different but good. Good service and price.

What a wonderful place to eat! It's near Jackson Square, so if you're in the area, stop here for an authentic New Orleans meal, but on the upscale side. Their seared gulf fish has a great crust paired with Beurre Blanc sauce that is delicious. Their Louisiana Sportman's Gumbo and Pecan Praline bread pudding is also a must-try.

My wife and I took my folks to New Orleans to celebrate their 40th. We took a cruise and stayed a few nights in the city. Of all the meals we ate on this trip, Kingfish was by far the best. The food was fresh and the drinks were delicious. The Black Drum fish tacos were really great. The next... More

Stopped in here for a couple of drinks and an appetizer at the bar. Bartenders were terrific, super friendly and happy to take you through the extensive cocktail menu. Drinks were excellent - I had a French 75 and my friend had a Pimms cup, and I also had a glass of nice Cava. We split the hush puppies, perfect... More

Kingfish is really two entities, as it advertises itself: a kitchen and a bar. Both feature interesting riffs on local favorites. The kitchen divides its plates, nearly all of which are locally sourced, into three sizes: Lil' Eats, Big Eats, and Side Eats. One interesting feature of the menu is an offering called "Offal of the Day," which on our... More

We stopped in for a drink and really enjoyed the selection from the bar. The bartender was attentive and took time to explain the various flavor profiles of the drinks we were considering. Did decide to sample the food and we were pleases with the appetizer as well. Blackened shrimp with cornbread dressing rocked it. If your in the Quarter,... More

Truly wonderful! Fantastic service and amazing food. Loved the King cake with foie gras. We were visiting from out of town and had our 8 1/2 month old baby with us. They were very accommodating. Kingfish was recommended and we were not disappointed.

The mint juleps were superb. And all the dishes we had at the table were flavorful and creatively southern.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
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 Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
