By far the best dinner we had in NOLA! I had the house special gumbo to start and the house special grilled redfish for dinner. Both were absolutely wonderful. We finished it off with the house special bread pudding. Amazing!

We first ate at Red Fish in 2006 and knew we had to return again. The restaurant is on Bourbon Street, but don’t let the location deter you. The restaurant is a nice escape from the craziness of Bourbon Street. The decor is attractive and...More

I have been here a few times, and the food is always delicious. Yesterday I went and took the waiters recommended and got the special, fresh snapper. It was amazing. From now on, I plan to always get the special.

I was not disappointed. Grilled and slightly blackened. Had raw oysters on the bar side first during happy hour and they were fresh and tasty.

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
