“Top Five”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

If your'e tired of Bourbon Street and want to walk a few blocks to an unbelievable restaurant, then treat yourself to KINGFISH, 337 Chartres Street.
We discovered KINGFISH thanks to the recommendation from Patrick's Bar Vin and wow we were gob smacked. Understand, that living in Vancouver there is access to top Chef's and their restaurants and cuisine, frankly some of the best food in the world. So we had no expectations of Kingfish...it was over the top.
I enjoyed the Junky Chicken infused with herbs and spices and my wife had the KINGFISH presented on a Himalayan Salt Block. The dishes were accompanied by a chilled bottle of Alexander Valley Chardonnay. Entree's are fairly priced and the wine list is simple and perfect. Our evening was made even more enjoyable by the amazing and attentive table service provided by Victoria B. and Kevin Babb the Service Manager.

The ambience is contemporary with plenty of room between tables and the bar looked like a fun place to hang out. Do yourself a favour and go try KINGFISH you won't be disappointed.

“Amazing food, great bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

This place is AWESOME. Our last night in town we looked on trip advisor for ideas and found kingfish. So glad we did! We went for happy hour ( a great time to go since you can try a few $8 apps and get 1/2 price beers & wine). We had the stuffed jalapeño, deviled duck egg, buffalo sliders, and blue cheese fondue. Everything was delicious and so unique. My boyfriend had a Dixie beer which is from Nola and loved it. We will absolutely be back next time we are in town. I just wish we had tried a handmade cocktail since they were being made using fresh ingredients by a bartender that was extremely knowledgable. I don't remember his name but he was a friendly older man. Can't wait to go back.

We are glad you were able to visit during our happy hour. It has been a great success since we started a few months ago. The bartender you are speaking about is Chris McMillian. Next time you are in town, I suggest sitting at the bar when he is working. He is very knowledgeable and it is a great experience. We appreciate the kind words and look forward to your next visit.

Thank you,

Husband and I went here after I read about it here. Wish we had had lunch because it smelled and looked wonderful. Everyone around us looked very pleased with their meals. Sat at bar and had drinks and watched football. Cute bartender with great personality. Will for sure return next trip. Suggesting it to friends going over soon for Saints game.
