    Everything was good except having to sit next to a vulgar drunk. I did not say anything about it to the staff because I didn’t want to create a scene. But this drunk ruined our meal. We lost our appetite with a his F this and F that. The staff should recognize this and ask him to tone it down. I know his group knew he was being vulgar because they said something to him. But he did not stop cussing. Oh well. Service was really good as well as the food.

    Don’t be deceived by the unassuming exterior: once you’re inside, this is a classy place (dress code applies) with excellent food, impeccable service and an extensive wine list. We had a cocktail, three courses and a glass of wine each, all of which were excellent, nicely presented and brought to the table with a smile. When the check came, I remarked to my husband: this ain’t Paris or New York. Highly recommended if you are in the Big Easy and looking to celebrate a special occasion or simply to enjoy some fine dining.

    Good was delicious as well as our service. The young lady at the hostess stand was eating Pringles, which I found strange.

    Love , love GW Fins. The service is the best and the staff is always trying to make sure you have the best dining experience. The food—for me, the best in the Quarter.

    Had the Restaurant Week special which was an excellent value. The lobster bisque was great as usual. Had a new, to me, entree scallops carbonara which was very tasty. Companions had the wahoo and creole tomato salad. Excellent service and great wine. Peaches desert was scrumptious with superb peaches. GW Fins never loses a beat.
