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.

The food here is excellent and the service was superb. The only downside was they were out of the scalibut which is a signature dish I wanted to try. Our reservation was pretty late so we recommend getting an earlier reservation or risk missing out on certain dishes. The food was still excellent though! Worth a visit.

I can't believe that I've lived here all my life and this was my first visit. The food was delicious and the service was top notch without being overbearing.
