We walked the streets of the quaters looking for some seafood at a reasonable price and we found it. Oceana Grill off bourbon st the food was excellent, the... More

6 in our group. Most of the food is fried. I had the grilled red fish. Amazing. All of it. Great food. Great service. A live band struck up outside randomly. Located in the heart of the Quarter. Very NOLA.

Had a nice quiet dinner on a Monday evening here. The grilled fish special of the day is always a treat because you know the chef wants to showcase his/her talent. This is an easy spot to strike up a conversation with a stranger, especially being in The Big Easy!

The waiters and staff were very accommodating and friendly. Did not like climbing the stairs to get to the dining room. The food was very good. I had the crab cakes and thought it was not going to be enough, so I ordered the seafood platter,but once the food came out i realized that I would not be able to... More

We had our last dinner in the French quarter at oceans. We decided to go because it was close to our hotel and got good reviews on tripadvisor. I can not say enough about our experience. The food was amazing - we had the oysters Rockefeller, New Orleans sampler with jambalaya, red beans and rice, crawfish and red beans and... More

The staff here are lovely! 10/10 for service. Smiles and great explanations all round, definitely worth coming for that. Food was ok. The gator bites were delicious and I'd go for that again for sure! The Bloody Mary was epic with all the seafood decorations and served as a meal on its own. The seafood gumbo was so so. Flavour...

This place is geared up for tourist. The food was good, but not great. I didn't particularly care for the breading on the shrimp. It was a little dense for my liking. Shrimp should be light and crunchy bursting with flavor and definitely not over cooked. The catfish was not crunchy and was too soft and lacked flavor. The oyster... More

If you're on a tight budget and want a step up from fast food, Oceana is a good choice. They have a court yard that is great during the fall months is New Orleans. They serve Breakfast lunch and Dinner. The St. Louis Crepe is a great selection on the breakfast menu.

Oceana Grill is really an excellent restaurant, but I just have two cons. Pros: great food (best blackened chicken and Caesar salad that I've ever digested), nice service Cons: a bit of a wait outdoors and after order is placed (understandable because the food is just...WOW), SUPER cold (bring a sweater, my mom had a blanket) I definitely recommend Oceana...

Great food, great location and our server, Jerry, was very pleasant and helpful. My husband and I went there our first night on New Orleans and didn't regret it a bit.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
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 Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
