My wife was pregnant when we went and not feeling great, so she struggled to finish her meal... which meant I ate all of the food. All. The. Foods! And I didn't regret it one bit. Service was wonderful, food was better.

Excellent meal and service, beautifully served! Ask for extra pepper jelly to go with the house biscuits, it is delish!

A bit disappointed - for all the 5 stars and recommendations that I received before booking my reservation, GW Fins fell short. The service was average (in that as I sit and write this, I can’t even tell you her name); the entrees were okay...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.
