Last night I had the smoked and fried oysters. Dear god they were close to heaven. Split two pounds of fresh crawfish boil. For dinner I had the blackened redfish with crab. Absolutely outstanding. Service was excellent. Although I would book reservations.

We stumbled across this restaurant, and food, drinks & services were all great. Crawfish was just in season and everything we ordered was delicious. But what set Gand Isle apart from other restaurants was the cocktails. Their hurricane was the best (none of those artificial...More

We both ordered the fried shrimp baskets and enjoyed them immensely. Coating on shrimp was very light and flavorful. Each of us had approx 10 good size shrimp. Service was quick and waiter very friendly.

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

touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
