To be fair, I did go for the Thanksgiving buffet and probably not a true "taste" of the normal menu items. It was crowded, chaotic, and they had a very hard time keeping dishes full. I thought the offerings were just OK and nothing extraordinary - which, for darn near $50 per person - I expected extraordinary. If I'm ever... More

My husband and I had dinner here with another couple. We all had different entrees and they were all very delicious. Everything was cooked perfectly and the service was also excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We went here for my birthday and the food was awesome! The BBQ crab claws were great! We also tried the alligator sausage and shrimp gumbo which was awesome. For the main course, we had the crab cake paired with some shrimp sautéed in a creole mustard sauce - talk about good! The crab cakes were all crab meat with... More

Best oysters I have ever had. Couple those with a nice glass of Pinot Noir and you are off to the races!

Went here twice for their happy hour that runs Monday-Thursday from 3-6p. They have 50 cent raw oysters, 2 for 1 draft beers, house wine or well drinks...a great deal! Seems that very few people know about this as it isn't advertised in the restaurant; we only knew about it because some friends just stopped in one afternoon while heading... More

Our first dinner stop was here at Red Fish for our first trip to New Orleans. Everything was sooo good! We got the BBQ Oysters, Alligator Sausage and Seafood Gumbo, Redfish and Lump Crabmeat and the Special. Service was impeccable and the food was equally delicious. This is a must stop restaurant spot!

Had a nice dinner here. The food was excellent, although it wasn't very hot by the time it reached my table. Service was good--except when I went to the restroom and had to weave through a gaggle of waitstaff who stood by the bar, watching a football game on the TV. Prices were okay--a little high, but this is Bourbon... 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.
