“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Amazing dinner. Very creative use of scallops and halibut. Had an 8:30pm reservation which perfect. My hubby and I shared an appetizer. Very knowledgeable and personable waiter, guiding us to the perfect choices. Can't recommend it highly enough.

“best dinner in New Orleans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Went to this restaurant for wedding anniversary. Service was excellent, they even printed a copy of the menu with our names and date on as a souvenir! Food was absolutely amazing. Order the scorpion fish as a starter, I was a bit apprehensive as hadnt heard of it before but it was delicious!!!!!! Can't think of a single fault, staff and food are an absolute credit to the owners. Well Done.

“Simply the BEST!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

My husband and I cannot ever eat at another seafood restaurant again without comparing it to GW Fins. Some adjectives we used during the meal: delicious, divine, holy cow (not really an adjective, I know), yummy and the meal ended with us fighting over who got to have the last lobster dumpling. I won. I can't wait to come back!

“Great Seafood!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

We ate at GW Fins the last night we were in New Orleans.I made a reservation through Open Table. The dinner was excellent. Our server was very helpful and attentive. We followed his advice on food selections and he was right on the mark. By far the best meal we had in New Orleans.
