There isn't much not to like about GW Fins. The atmosphere is lovely without being stuffy, the service staff is on their game and attentive without being obtrusive. The lobster dumplings were made in heaven. The pork belly and compressed watermelon starter was excellent. Mains...More

We had a perfectly fine meal here but the experience was not as satisfying as a couple of less expensive meals we had outside the tourist bubble of the French Quarter. Great service at prices that should come with great service. The specials were distinct...More

Well worth the cost when you get fed up of eating Cajun food (if that's possible!). Much more sophisticated than the surrounding restaurants in Bourbon Street with excellent service and enticing dishes.

This being the #1-rated restaurant in NOLA, perhaps my expectations were too high. The service was superb; the food surprisingly bland. It rates very good but nothing more.

Been here twice and the food is outstanding. A little expensive but worth every bite. If roasted oysters are an appetizer they are a must have

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

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.
