The Swordfish was amazing. The attention to detail is always impressive. Our party had steak cooked perfectly, shallibut (perfection), and red snapper. The MWtini is the perfect summer cocktail and their coffee and chocolate cake is worth every penny. We have been eating here for...More

Dinner at GW Fins is a must when in New Orleans. Not only was the food suburb the service was impeccable. Very relaxing dinner with friends while sampling the finer dishes of New Orleans.

Avoid the restaurants in the French Quarter that have servers waving you into their establishments! GW Fins offers a broad menu of appetizers, entrees, desserts, and alcoholic beverages. You will be served by well-trained and knowledgeable servers.

Make a reservation. It can get really busy for dinner. We sat in the bar area which was a bit noisy but OK. The wait would have been an hour instead. We ordered starters and they were all excellent. The lobster dumpling was to die...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

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.
