Impressive, daily menu! The freshest of the fresh fish. Great service with the extras (black, cloth napkins if you are wearing black slacks or a black dress). Back room is small, romantic and with beautiful ironwork art. This restaurant is a must.

My family of six dined here two nights ago. It was an amazing dinner. The tuna, lobster dumplings and bbq shrimp appetizers were amazing. Especially the dumplings! All of the fish (scalibut, red fish, salmon) were to die for! Kids are still talking about it....More

French Quarter
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.
