Great menu and food, however I kinda felt like i was in a chain like restaurant with a server that didn't take the time to chat and explain different dishes and aspects of the menu, although the food was delicious the feeling of being rushed through a production line spoiled the evening.

Joe took time to describe many items on the menu and how they were made. He made excellent recommendations, which I was happy to accept. The food was quite good and plentiful. Joe was attentive but not intrusive. I would recommend the alligator gumbo to anyone.

The Redfish Grill is a great choice if you want local, fresh seafood. It is owned by the Brennan Family, namely, Ralph Brennan. The food is fresh and delicious and the menu is extensive. I would suggest making a reservation to make sure that you get a table. The lunch menu is a great deal, so I would recommend going... More

Food is over the top in this loud but great seafood restaurant. The dishes are creative and well though. Very busy place and many times there are long lines to get in so go early. All the seafood is fresh and wonderful. Service is very good.

We (4) of us went during The Essence Music Festival. It is a must every visit. We had no problem getting a table. I recommend everything on the menu. I had the crab claws appetizer and the shrimp poor boy. Excellent. My friends had never been there, they love it. I'm sure they will return. I will.

We decided to have dinner at this restaurant after seeing tables available to reserve online and the ratings on Trip Advisor. We were in front of the restaurant and decided to go inside to get a table. To our surprise, they indicated it would be 1.5 hours before we could get a table. We decided to leave and actually use...

We really enjoyed the Red Fish Grill. I had the catfish with a creole sauce and it was excellent. Also, the bread pudding, which you have to order when you order your meal, is excellent. The service is great.

Strongbow available... good raw oysters... worth it for the evening stop. I'd recommend trying the raw oysters being shucked fresh at the French Market during the day.
