We were part of a group that reserved the entire restaurant. It was fantastic. I could get all foodie and such but the reality is, an excellent meal in a beautiful setting.

All 6 of us loved this restaurant! From the Lobster Dumplings to the malty ice cream pie everything was delicious. The pacing was perfect as well with just enough time between courses to enjoy your dish. Out server, John was helpful and attentive but not intrusive. Definitely recommend this wonderful restaurant.

Reservations are necessary and essential to avoid disappointment. I had a reservation for 6:45, but we arrived at 6:20 hoping to be seated early. We were sent to the bar to wait. During that time, at least four parties of between two and eight were turned away and told nothing would be available. We were seated in a large booth... More

By fish, I mean those animals with scales and fins. While shellfish and beef show up in the entrée list, the star of the menu is fish. Plenty of shellfish among the appetizers, but the entrée list if fish centric. If you are not going to order a fish entrée, you really should consider eating somewhere else. If you are... More

Let me start by saying I am an avid foodie with high expectations. That being said I believe I have found my go to spot in Nawwlins! The scalibut was unreal, The wasabi encrusted wahoo was to die for. Great wine list is very acceptable. We tried several apps and they were incredible as well. The owner came out and... More

Four of us went to GW's on our first night in Nola. Our server, Tabitha, was affable, efficient and attentive. Food was fabulous. My wife is still raving about her pork chop and I loved my fish dish (type changes daily ). Our friends' entrees were just as delicious. When you are ready for fine dining, go here.

We ate here a few nights ago and were very disappointed. The atmosphere is quite cold - perhaps the place is too big? However the bar which is located close to the restaurant had a great vibe. Our meal was very disappointing especially having read reviews onTA. The accompaniments were cold on both our dishes so each had to be... More

The food is wonderful as is the service, highly recommend eating here. Yes it's more expensive then most of the options in and around Bourbon street but it's well worth the extra. I tried for a couple of days to reserve a table here but due to its popularity I was unsuccessful. However I got their early, before 6pm, and... More

Nice place but really like a gussied up Landry's. The food was tasty but overpriced and not memorable. We did enjoy the lobster dumplings. Probably won't make our rotation for next time

We loved this place & visited twice. Both the time their fishes preparation was amazing. It's hard to find on map rather asking locals is very easy. Location is not so easily accessible but once you reach you will forget everything. Worth visiting evening. Thanks..
