My best dining experience in New Orleans. Highly recommend the "scalibut". The food is Excellent, the service is perfect. Nick, our waiter is incredibly knowledgeable and knows the menu and the wine list like the back of his hand. Better than Emeril's.

We researched many restaurants and thought tpGW Fins sounded appealing. It exceeded our expectations. Food is superb. It's rather noisy but otherwise perfect.

Great atmosphere but a couple of the entree dishes we had were very fishy. The appetizers, the pork bellies and the Redfish fins were very good. We also felt rushed to order, eat and get out. Both dishes that were off flavor were the same,...More

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.
