We have been looking for a restaurant in the GTA that serves New Orleans style of food. We found a little gem that everyone should try and you won't regret it. The restaurant is a family run business and Mike and his family are charming...hosts, delightful! Starters included a tasty Caesar Salad, with crispy fresh romaine and freshly shaved Parmigiano Reggiano that was well balanced. The Cajun Calamari were made to perfection and very tender. The Coconut Beer Shrimp was nicely balanced and not too sweet. The Seafood Gumbo was a bit on the thin side but had good flavour. The mains were terrific, three of us had the delicious, melt in your mouth Chilean Sea Bass which was reasonably priced to boot! Our youngest likes steak and he had the blackened strip loin with green peppercorn sauce. The steak was tender and better than the steak he had at Hy's downtown earlier this year. To end the evening we had Beignet's, Bananas Foster, Pecan Pie and Crème Caramel. Mike provided complimentary after dinner aperitifs which was a surprise and a nice touch. We will be back!More

Reviewed April 5, 2021

Having moved away from the GTA several years ago we have always missed our favourite restaurant and the beautiful meals and service we would have when dining at New Orleans Seafood and Steak. So when our kids surprised us with dinner for 6 this past...weekend we were delighted! Even after travelling for almost 2 hours, all of our meals were excellent and exactly as we remembered them. Jambalaya, Shrimp Creole, Fisherman’s Plate, Gumbo ya ya, calamari, coconut shrimp and Caesar salads. What a feast!! Even homemade beignets! Don’t hesitate to order takeout until you can have the full experience of dining there when COVID restrictions are lifted. You won’t be disappointed!More

Had dinner last night at New Orleans Seafood and Steakhouse. The atmosphere, food, drinks and service were all outstanding. We had a larger party (7 people), but all meals were served hot and fresh. We will definitely be going back. And the after dinner drink...was the cherry on top. Thank you so much for making my special day so much more special.More

The service is impeccable, and the food is the closest to the ones I have tried at New Orleans. We are not from Toronto, but wouldn’t mind the long drive to go back to this place. Mike (the owner, I believe), provided service like no...one from the nice and fancy restaurants we’ve been to has ever had. We will definitely go back whenever we have the chance to.More

We just got home after an amazing dinner at New Orleans Seafood and Steak house. Every dish is delightful and perfectly seasoned! The Lobster bisque is unbelievable (the best we’ve ever had) the Jambalaya is truly amazing, I can only describe it as an explosion...of wonderful flavours lol! The crab cakes, I should have ordered more 🥰. The service is very good 👍 Overall, it’s a 10/10 for this place.More

Excellent restaurant in an unexpected location. Great atmosphere, Jazz pictures, and instruments on the walls, and great jazz music. Fantastic food and service. When we asked to share an appetizer it came individually on two plates. Nice touch. Crab cakes are great, and so are...other dishes.More

The best dinner we had during our trip. Food was delicious, fresh, full of flavors. Service was impeccable. Take the time to talk with Mike, the owner. He'll have plenty of stories for you and will make your night memorable. A must in our opinion!

First time there and we ordered the mussels, the spinach salad and the seafood pasta. Every item was AMAZING. I drank the mussels broth like a soup when the mussels were done. The staff was so attentive and Mike and Monica were so attentive to...our every need. I can't wait to go back and try more dishes on the menu. They do reccommend you make a reservation to ensure you get a table. One of my best dining experiences in Toronto.More

This family owned restaurant is one of the best in the city! If you are looking for seafood, it would be the very top! The type of place that could easily be missed because it doesn't look like much from the outside, but on the...inside you have the warmth of the owner and his family, the soothing sounds of light blues and jazz, and some incredible food and environment that convinces you that you are no longer in Toronto.More

This was our first visit to New Orleans Seafood and Steakhouse and we wish that we had discovered it sooner! It is a hidden gem ! We felt we were on vacation in New Orleans again. Outstading food and service! From the decor and music...to the entrees and dessert, everything was excellent and perfectly authentic. Mike, the owner's husband, is a most charming host!

We were in Toronto on a layover for one night only and were so happy to have found this gem of a restaurant . Everything was just perfect - they managed to find us a table ( although they were fully booked and we did...not have a reservation ) service and quality of food and drinks were beyond fantastic . Freshest food , prepared with love and care , top notch service and friendly proprietor is what earned this place the accolades it deserves . If and when we come back to Toronto this will be our first stop , highly recommend it to anyone visiting Toronto !More

A friend took us here as she had previously enjoyed a meal here. We ordered the calamari appetizer, very tasty. Our table had jambalaya for 2, seafood pasta and the tenderloin steak. The food was phenomenal! I am not the biggest fan of spicy food...( prefer flavour to heat) my pasta sauce was modified with a little cream added to the creole sauce. It was the best seafood pasta I’ve ever had. The shrimp was tender and tasty, the fish too was very flakey and tender. My son loved his steak and the jambalaya was impressive in both flavour and size. Beignets and pecan pie rounded out the dining experience. Decor is very quaint with musical instruments on the walls and framed pictures. Restaurant was very busy with all the tables occupied. If I had to say where they could improve it would be in 2 things. 1)Another server/busser to fill our water glasses, take away plates and package up any leftovers for us to take home. We weren’t able to finish the jambalaya and it was taken away, we assumed it would be packaged up for us to enjoy tomorrow, but it wasn’t. What a waste. 2)Invest in a nespresso or keurig. Only option for coffee was expresso or latte. The option of having a nice decaf coffee or tea with dessert would have made the impossibly long wait for our bill a bit more tolerable. The wrap up of the evening was less than impressive.More

We googled a Cajun restaurant and up came this wonderful restaurant. We had a bit of a drive but it was absolutely worth it. From the moment we sat down to the friendly fist bump with Micheal when leaving I cannot say enough about this...restaurant. The food was spectacular, the service made each patron feel more than welcome. We are already planning out next visit and what we will eat. This little gem should be tried at least once and I guarantee you will want to return.More
