    We went to GW for our anniversary like the past 15 years and still GW never disappoints. Their service, presentation and food quality and choices are the reasons why we keep going back. For fresh seafood-#1 in Nola.

    We had an exceptional experience! Great food, great service, beautiful atmosphere. You HAVE to try the blue fin tuna “NY Strip” and mushroom risotto!! It’s important to note, though, the freshly baked biscuits have lard in them…so veggies and vegans beware!

    Absolutely fantastic experience. We sat at the bar and had several drinks and then tried the pork chop and the filet. Both were top notch. Would recommend this as the top restaurant we tried during our trip to New Orleans

    Absolutely phenomenal! Every dish was delicious. Try the dry-aged Tuna, the Scalibut or the Barracuda...can not go wrong! We changed our dinner plans because of a recommendation from a waitress we had at lunch and were incredibly happy we did!

    We arrived on-time, and we were seated promptly. From the start to finish, the service was outstanding! We started with two appetizers: the lobster dumplings and tempura snapper breast. The lobster dumplings were light and very good, but in our collective opinion they pale in comparison to the tempura snapper breast. The latter was extremely flavorful and satisfying. The Asian slaw upon which the three pieces were plated was equally outstanding. For entrees, we ordered Scalibut and the Duroc pork chop. Both were incredible. Obviously, the fish was lighter, but that is not to discount the presentation or flavor. The pork chop, which I noted one person on the Facebook page remarked no one goes to GW Fins for the pork chop, was amazing. Anyone who has experienced quality Duroc pork knows that it is extremely flavorable for lean pork. The recommended temperature (medium) was spot on for this lean piece of meat. The goat cheese polenta (grits) were also very good. It was delicate and understated, but it was a nice complement to the pork. For dessert, we shared the Salty Malty Ice Cream Pie. It was very good! If you like a dessert that features salt and sugar, then I cannot recommend it highly enough. Overall, the visit exceeded all expectations! By the way, the locals with whom we spoke say this is a seafood destination.

    Always a pleasure! One of the best restaurants in New Orleans without hesitation. The Firecracker Tuna Tacos and the Scalibut are always delicious. The Scallops Carbonara were a new treat. We found a great Pinot Noir in the WillaKenzie. Our only regret, no room for the Salty Malty! (Next time!)

    Excellent food, even better service. The atmosphere is great…high-end but not stuffy! The prices are a bit steep for the amount of food served.
