Good Seafood in the French Quarter Nov 18, 2015
One of the restaurants that made it onto my list during a recent long weekend in New Orleans was the much acclaimed Red Fish Grill on Bourbon Street. The restaurant was quite busy so reservations are recommended, especially from Thursday through Sunday nights. The large restaurant has a very bustling and vibrant ambiance which fits in well with its French Quarter location. They have a great bar which is a nice place to kill time before your reservation or retire to for after dinner drinks. The restaurants has a big, diverse menu, with most of the featuring local favorites and twists on creole classics using local Gulf catch. My wife enjoyed this place much more than I did although I would probably go back to give it another chance. I would rate it a 7 out of 10 stars; my wife would probably give it a 9 so that just illustrates that this place will effect different people in different ways.

Great Place To Eat In The French Quarter Nov 05, 2012
This place was recommended to me by a friend I was touring the French Quarter with. She had some sentimental ties to it, but it was still one of the best places I ate at during the week I was in New Orleans. The food is fantastic and is comparable in price to anywhere else I've eaten in the city.

We ate here twice over our trip and enjoyed both times. They have a bread pudding served with white chocolate ice cream and chocolate sauce, which I thought was a to-die-for food item. My favorite entree was the surf & turf burger, with a beef patty, roast beef, and marinated shrimp. I wasn't very impressed with the pecan pie, which I thought I needed to try while I was in the south. But I'm also not very into pecan pie to begin with. If you're a vegetarian or really like asparagus, a side of it ($4) is a worthwhile addition.

Touristy, decent, but better options around Nov 09, 2009
I have been here twice about 7 years apart. I didn't want to go the second time only because I had been before and I like explore more options, but my big group was walking around in the rain and couldn't make up their mind, so they finally opted on eating here. I remembered my experience the first time to be better than the second, but maybe that is just from maturing tastes. Everything I had this time around (alligator sausage gumbo, blackened fish, and barbecue oysters) was good enough; I just wouldn't call it above average. I found the barbecue oysters to be pretty tasty even if they didn't look that appetizing. I have seen a lot of reviews say that it is expensive. I guess I would agree that it may not be a great value for what you get, but I wouldn't call it expensive.

Nice dinner Apr 23, 2008
Being tourist in a new town we had no idea where to eat, and I guess we looked that way to a police officer who was patrolling Bourbon Street, because he suggested the Red Fish Grill. He told us that the price would be a little high but the food is excellent. So we did give it a try for a nice meal. Now let me tell you that neither my wife or I eat very much, and we thought this would be a great chance to share a meal. We asked our waiter who was very helpful and made a suggestion of the Red Fish over a bed of ham, potato and peas with Crawfish tails. Sounded good to us, but when he brought the two plates we thought he had gotten the order wrong. These two plates were more than we expected even one plate to be. But he reassured us that it was indeed one meal split. The food was excellent, the atmosphere it the restaurant was nice if not a little noisy, and of course it was crowded. Our meal was $26.95 plus our drinks and tip, which was not bad considering where we were. Would I go there again? Good question. This place was tourity, but great food and I’d probably give another place a try.

VERY expensive Apr 26, 2008
Went to meet friends, but couldn't hold a decent conversation because of the noise. The food is very overpriced considering that there are so many local places for seafood. That first visit was my last. I will stick to the neighborhood restaurants.

This seafood restaurant was recommended by several people to have an authentic New Orleans seafood meal. After a long wait to get seated, we waited again for our waiter to take our order. I will say first that the food was very good, but not "award winning excellence". It was very loud and hard to carry on a conversation with people at your table.The check came within minutes of us receiving our food and the waiter didn't ask us if we wanted any dessert. It was an average dining experience for me. The food is priced about right but the atmosphere is more for tourists (and food critics). I had the Sautéed Pecan Crusted Gulf Fish which was $21.95 and we ordered a bottle of wine with the meal. I would suggest seeking out a different seafood restaurant.
