We sat at the bar and had a great night. Had wonderful Pinot Noir, appetizers of shrimp and grits and lobster dumplings. For entrees, my wife and I both had scallops which were awesome.

This was rated number 1 at the time we went. Food was good, but safe and the service was very 'corporate friendly.' I expect more in Nee Orleans.

G.W. Fins was recommended by several friends as the restaurant to go to when in New Orleans. They were right! Don't let the exterior fool you, it is beautifully decorated inside. We made reservations as we were told it's hard to drop-in. When we arrived,...More

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.
