Description: 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.

“Delicious food, tremendous service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

The concierge recommended this restaurant and it was wonderful. Great ambiance, delicious food (especially the blue crab potstickers), extensive wine list by the glass, and especially wonderful service. I had ordered the lobster dumplings, and when the waiter saw I wasn't a fan, he took them away and gave me an order of the potstickers. He was extremely courteous. Great restaurant, can't recommend it highly enough!

“Nice, Romantic Evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

Wonderful experience. Delicious dinner, nice bottle of wine, attentive service, good atmosphere. While we've visited NOLA many times over the years we had not made it to GW Fins. Won't make that mistake again. I would suggest choosing a booth for better privacy.

“Best meal in New Orleans!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012 via mobile

This was the best of our three dinners far and away. The staff was very knowledgeable and the seafood was the freshest I have ever had. They accommodated special requests when reasonable. An a+ experience!

“Best fish and Scallops!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

I can't say enough about the wonderful food at GW's. My favorite are the large tender scallops, but I have never had a bad plate here. If you are looking for fresh creative and very tasty seafood, this is the place. Beautiful Atmosphere also.
