    Ask for AJ, our waiter. Outstanding service and the food was incredible. Relaxed atmosphere, casual as we were coming back from FL and had just driven 9 hours to get there! First time in NOLA, ready to go back.

    The baked pompano was amazing. If you like Caesar salad, you must try their version! It’s charred on the grill and slightly warm, and delicious!

    The food here s always top notch! I am in the city a couple times a month and eat there every time I go. I don’t care for the gratuity automatically being added to the bill or the requirement of a credit card to make a reservation, but the quality of the food makes it easy to overlook the annoyances. The redfish on the half shell is amazing.

    It’s obvious why this restraunt has an automatic 20% tip added to the bill. Service is so bad no one would tip otherwise. Our waitress was arrogant and argumentative. After bringing a bottle of beer I asked for a chilled glass and she became argumentative that they may or may not have one and so I asked for a glass or plastic glass or a paper cup because I did not drink from the bottle. I asked for my salad dressing to be on the side and she quipped back that that’s how they do it anyway. A seafood restaurant being without salmon at 5 PM in the evening is poor management. When asked for our snapper fish to be cooked well done she quipped we only cook it one way. All in all an unpleasant evening even though the food was decent we would not go back

    Grand Isle RestaurantResponded on July 9, 2022Thanks for your input. Being out of salmon has nothing to do with management. Only sockeye salmon was available and due to it's dry, crumbly nature we elected not to serve it. Take caution in being presumptive. We apologize for your sub-par service and would like to address these issues with said server. If you could please give a brief description that would help so much. We have chilled glasses, no snapper; but we have the ability to cook fish well done so we will definitely address. Regards.

    Well, I have to start with Cali, what a beautiful presence she was to our dinner! I came for the Happy Hour Shrimp Boiled and Loved it. The surprise was the Sticky Ribs with an Asian Flair that we're the 'Best Ribs" my sweet wife and I have ever experienced. Great Place will eat there again, before we leave NOLA!!!

    We never miss an opportunity to dine whenever we come to New Orleans. Our absolute favorites are the smoke fried oysters, crawfish beignets, and chargrilled oysters. All of the staff are so friendly. Occasionally we even received a complimentary dish. ❤️

    While on vacation to NOLA, the Grand Isle Restaurant was suggested by our concierge. We followed his direction and made a reservation. So glad we did., the location was packed. Luckily we were seated upon arrival. The service was very friendly. The portions were large. The service was very slow, so need to keep that in mind in having plans after dinner. Overall, it’s a place we would go back to. Very pleased.

    This was Absolutely the Worst. Chargrill oysters were gritty and so chewy out of 6…I spat out 2 left 2 in the shell … girlfriend tried one. Which she spat out. Ordered Jambalaya which was a scoop of soft paste…. Mustard greens weren’t terrible. My date ordered the braised pork chop which was. Well we ended up not eating much.

    The food overall was very good. For appetizers we had the Hot blue crab dip and Boudin. Both were amazing. My son and husband had the blue cheese burger. Burgers were a little over charred for their liking. I had the Gulf fish and crawlfish. It was very good. My daughter had the fisherman's stew. She said it was very good. It just needed more seafood in it because she never eats the vegetables 😋 The service was a little lacking but she was very kind and got everything on our order correct. Restaurant was nice and clean.

We had a great visit with our great, professional and very pleasant server Janisha! The greeting host validated my friend’s parking pass and gave her a bag to carry out. Definitely a winner!
