The place is nice, the food is not and the services is bad. I through this restaurant closed up. Oh and the price is not cheap.

Food was delicious. A nice twist on classic New Orleans fare. Service was amazing. One of those restaurant experiences where the wait staff knows the menu and wine list inside out and their recommendations are spot on.

Loved my visit to Rio Mar. I come to New Orleans a lot. This was my first time coming to Rio Mar, and it was great. I will definitely be coming back. It is a New Orleans spin on Spanish cuisine! Great great menu!

From a food perspective, there are many great restaurants in New Orleans. But a consistent problem with many is that they don't take noise levels into consideration. Hard surfaces from floor to ceiling make pleasant--or any--conversation impossible. And so it is with Rio Mar. The...More

Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district
is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing
assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having
moved in and set up shop throughout the disused
warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much
of the art you'll come across here is local in scope,
ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old
brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and
