    The sheepshead entree is out of the world. I don’t know how the chef made this dish. It has the perfect balance of a fried/baked textured fish meal. Somehow they did it, and it was amazing.

    Best service yet! Amazing Red Snapper and Scalibut is a must. Can't go wrong with a Irish Coffee night cap and if Apple Pie is on the menu, it's a must try.

    Don't miss the smoked sizzling oysters (the shells are heated to 500 degrees then cold-smoked oysters soaked in drawn butter are dropped in, brought to the table semi-raw and sizzling). Read more

    This restaurant by far was the BEST place I tried in all of New Orleans. It's perfect for a date. The food was beyond spectacular (try the scallops & mushroom risotto, if available).

    Everything we had was amazing. Lobster dumplings! Scalibut! Swordfish! The free biscuits were addictive, we had 3 or 4 a piece 🙃

    One of the many nice, classy restaurants in the Quarters. Ensure you adhere to the dress code. All the appetizers were great. The entrees were great. The staff was superb.

    Start with the biscuits & lobster dumplings. When making your reservation go Weird & order the secret item for the table to share. Business dress attire is required.

    Red snapper was very good, service was perfect. But the ravioli was the peak. You must try that ravioli, heavenly good...

    Sizzling oysters, Fish tail wings were two of our favorites, but everything was delicious. Men must wear a collared shirt (or could borrow one).

    Try GW Fins blackened fish, the fish varies but the technique is always dead on - Gambit's Five in 5. http://www.bestofneworleans.com/gambit/five-places-for-blackened-fish/Content?oid=2060481

    Scalibut was really delicious; also, have the sides, the asparagus, roasted cauliflower were yummy, and bok choy was REALLY scrumptious.

    Entreés were good. Seafood and fish. Biscuits were the best I’ve had to date in Nola. Keep thinking about the biscuits.

    Try the Apple pie with cheddar cheese top crust, served with vanilla ice cream - The pie is a great #dessert and the cheddar puts it over the top

    Get an early reservation. Ask for booth on back wall. Scalibut is a must. It's an amazing combo.

    The lobster dumplings were the tastiest things I've EVER eaten in my ENTIRE life. Come 5 to an order. Order a couple and make that your meal!!

    Good service, nice ingredients, but offensively dull, lifeless results. I'm not extremely difficult to please, so maybe I just had really bad luck (I see that my reaction is quite unusual).

    The pork chops are way better at Muriels', the pecan pie is more crust and ice cream than anything, but the mushroom rissotto is pretty good...
