So consistently outstanding! We eat here whenever we are in NOLA. Get any entree, you cannot go wrong, but be sure to start with the fig salad....one of my favorite dishes anywhere!

Great atmosphere and the best seafood in town. They only serve the freshest fish they can purchase that day. Menu changes daily. So good.

Went for dinner. The dumplings were the best. We had the red snapper and another fish dish both cooked to perfection. The service was excellent. We would say the best restaurant we went to in New Orleans

What an excellent restaurant. Lovely atmosphere, attentive, friendly staff, amazing food. Tempura Fin Wings and Scalibut are my recommendations but I am sure everything on the menu is just as delicious. High end food worth every penny. Treat yourself and go is all I can...More

The food may be the best in New Orleans. The atmosphere is not my favorite. Don't miss the lobster dumplings or the salty malty. I usually order the scalibut.

This place is definitely worth the visit. The food is superb, and the service is really efficient. Would return in a heart beat, some of the best food we have eaten.

My new favorite fine dining place in the French Quarter! Believe me when I tell you what amazing food and excellent service GW Fins has to offer. Next time we are in NOLA we are sure to visit this restaurant for the food and atmosphere.

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.
