We had a great meal here! Our waitress was friendly and she nailed her recommendations. We started at the bar with drinks. For appetizers we had the BBQ shrimp(wow) and lobster dumplings(delish). They come around with these dreamy biscuits. I don't even want to know...More

Wanted to go somewhere a bit more special and romantic. Food was good but not fantastic. The portions were small, food had flavor but underwhelmed.

We were a group of seven and were given a nice table. This is a good seafood restaurant although the dishes seem to be suited more to the American than European palate, which, of course, is not surprising. But perhaps deep-fried dishes should be marked...More

We have been here twice now and the food and service is exceptional. I would recommend the scalibut and the swordfish. Wine was pretty expensive but a good selection. Their biscuits were really good too!

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

Experience the cuisine that has created raving fans of local diners and national and local food critics alike. Chef Tenney Flynn (two time winner of "Chef of the Year" in New Orleans Magazine) ensures the highest quality seafood by flying in products from around the globe and featuring only the best from local waters - both at their seasonal peak. This commitment to freshness and variety are two of the many reasons GW Fins prints its menu daily and has received numerous glowing reviews in The Times-Picayune (4 beans), Food & Wine, Southern Living and Esquire magazines. We look forward to serving you soon so we may learn what you think.
