The service here was very efficient. Despite being very busy, our drinks, appetizers & meals arrived quickly. The food was fantastic! We shared the Alligator Boudin Balls & honestly, I could have eaten more! The mustard / pepper jelly sauce was perfect. I had the Mangrove Snapper Green Curry which had just the right amount of heat. My husband liked... More

One of the best filets I have ever had! We were seated at 7:30, we had reservations, and there wasn't an empty seat in the house on the Saturday evening. The 4 of us waited a short time for water, a little longer for drinks (new bartender was having real trouble keeping up). The food was well worth the wait... More

I went here while in NOLA on a girls trip with my best friend, mom and sister. We were all very pleased with our food and would definitely be back. Prices were moderate. The presentation was great. It was a little noisy, but there was a large group of people next to us, so this might not always be the... More

Had a rather average lunch here at an above average price. The price to value ratio is lower than I would consider good. Waiter was confused and they were out of every beer I wanted. Their specialty poboy sandwich was not so special and their alligator balls should have been called rice balls and alligator surprise. The surprise was to... More

Stopped here on a whim and had a light meal of alligator sausage gumbo and it was tasty. Our waiter, Ike, was an older guy with a truckload of personality and handled our order very professionally even though there was not much to it and probably smaller than he would normally serve. Gave us great service with a smile. I'd... More

We dined at the Red Fish Grill during our June 2013 visit to NOLA. My husband still searches for a restaurant that can perfect their lightly fried oysters served in half shells...NO ONE has met his expectations. Thank-you for a wonderful meal and excellent service

Quick business lunch on a Monday. Selection was good: fish tacos to wagyu beef hamburger. Service was quick and respectful. Prices were slightly high, but given it's in the French Quarter, not out of line. The red fish and lump crab offering was tempting, but $30+ for a lunch item wasn't in the budget.....maybe another visit for dinner.

Not the best food in the city. Had oysters on half shell, some of grit and rock salt were in my oysters.....made it crunchy. Also poured Beefeater's on the rocks incorrectly---wrong liquor. Having said the bad, they comped the oysters, switched out the drink and I had a great piece of black drum on grits. It just seems there is... More

Ralph Brennan's award winning casual New Orleans seafood restaurant and oyster bar on Bourbon Street. (Voted seafood restaurant 4 years, best oyster po-boy 2010 & 2011). Don't miss Red Fish Grill restaurant's heavenly BBQ Oysters, signature Alligator Sausage & Seafood Gumbo, Grilled Redfish and Double Chocolate Bread Pudding. Casual and fun (a sea of metal fish in neon swim overhead bright, hand painted tables). Open for lunch and dinner 7 days with a lively cocktail and oyster bar going from 11 AM - 11 PM, the perfect place to ease into New Orleans' laid back French Quarter lifestyle or tell it goodbye until next time.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
