It was recommended to us & so glad we made it. We used Open Table for a reservation and they ran on time, Tallison was our waiter. He was so pleasant and knew the menu really well. He guided me to try the red fish and it was perfect. My husband equally enjoyed the grouper, prepared as Tallison had suggested.

This is still my favorite restaurant with my favorite meal in New Orleans. Their signature Red fish meal is awesome. I stopped in for dinner with my wife. She ordered the filet and it was overdone. Everything else was perfect. The house salad was also very good. The location is on Bourbon just off Canal and very easy to find.

To be quite honest, our visit to Red Fish Grill was our first oportunity to eat good fish after two week in the US. Maybe that helped enhance even more the fish quality. We were desperate for a nice fish meal and we surely got it here. It has a cosy environment, good service and good price. The fish was... More

The food was pretty good and the atmosphere was decent. The biggest drawback was the grumpy staff - from the top to the bottom. My server was friendly in the direct interactions with me but I don't know if I saw a smile from anybody accept the person who seated me.

Great food and service. We made reservations on a Thursday night and were seated close to on time. Prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is loud and happy. One of the best meals we had in New Orleans. Try the red fish, yummy

We only ate here for the oyster happy hour, but oh my! These were by far the best raw oysters we ate all week. They were ice cold, just as they should be, smelled and tasted of the ocean and were just the right size. The cocktail sauce and horseradish were also very fresh. During happy hour the oysters are...

We were told 2 hour wait, but once they saw we had kids we were seated immediately. Very nice! Color pages and free ice cream kept the kids happy. Best fish (pompano & wahoo) I have had in a long time. Definitely recommend!!

Thank bstrong11

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.
