Seaworthy showcases wild-caught and sustainably harvested oysters from American waters — Gulf Coast, East Coast, and West Coast alike — as well as locally sourced fish and game. The celebrated beverage program offers both classic and proprietary cocktails, with a smart selection of beer and wine.

Set in a classic Creole cottage built in 1832, Seaworthy was opened by Ace Hotel with support from the team at Grand Banks. Please note that we only have stair access to our second and third floor.

Seaworthy culls inspiration from Gulf Coast waterways, the time-worn traditions of Southern hospitality and the legendary exuberance of the city of New Orleans.

*Please be advised: in accordance with current City of New Orleans health restrictions, anyone 12 years of age and older must provide proof of at least one dose of an approved COVID vaccine or negative PCR test within 72 hours to enter any indoor dining establishment.

    We unfortunately witnessed several mice in the upper floor dinning area. This being an old house, I might understand that the issue isn't due to neglect or poor hygiene, but after we saw several of those little animals crossing the room as our appetizers were severed, the servers nonchalantly said we could switch tables, but no one apologized, nor did anything. They served us the full bill and the services was quite poor during the meal. I am quite understanding as I live in an old house but can't believe the manager or another person in charge didn't apologies for our experience. They were already quite lucky we stayed to eat and spend money. Haven't had this bad of an experience in a restaurant in a while.

    Wasn’t impressed at all, had a reservation and was seated in a corner when you walk in, took a minute for them to figure out who was supposed to be helping us, for the price wasn’t impressed with food, the chargrilled oysters were terrible, won’t go back and will not recommend to anyone

    We were excited to try Seaworthy. But our server was pretty awful. Never once bussing a plate off our table. It got super crowded will all the plates on the table. Not with customers. Other employees were coming by to check on us and take some away because he just started ignoring us. In fact we still had menus there after we closed out. He treated the table next to us kindly. Saw that they were actually told which oysters were which, not just handed the receipt from the kitchen and told “this is what they are”. Not sure what we did to deserve his negative treatment, we didn’t complain once or complicate the order at all, and we still tipped well just to kill him with kindness. Everyone else was nice.

    This was a last minute decision. The place was cold as a meat locker but they turned the AC down upon request. Unfortunately, my wife is not a big oyster fan so our options were limited. We each had a craft drink that was very good. For dinner we went with three appetizers - pork belly, gumbo and a salad with fresh peaches and goat cheese. The gumbo was a bit too salty but full of sausage and shrimp. We liked the salad and felt the pork was the best of them all. I enjoyed the anchovy butter and toast that was brought to the table but anchovies aren’t everyone’s cup of tea. There are many places we want to try in New Orleans before going back to this one. I would do so, however…but I’m not so sure about my wife😉

    We have been here several times and we know the food and drinks are great. Usually we sit in the courtyard and it’s wonderful. This time We sat in the upstairs and we’re planning a full dinner. But left after one round of drinks and the raw bar platter because there were 3-4 mice running around the dining room. I understand it’s New Orleans and a lot of restaurants have mice, but there shouldn’t be mice running across the dining room, under my chair, and under our table. We told the waiter who basically said there was nothing he could do about it, which was probably true but I felt like it could have been handled better. The cocktails were amazing and the raw bar great as usual. But we left and had our dinner elsewhere because we were very skiddish with mice everywhere.

    overall great tasting food, fresh cold oysters and interesting vibe / atmosphere. I think we had selected the wrong seats as we were right near the bar so we kept hearing this one waitress talk and talk and talk. it wasn't as if she was cursing or anything it was just really loud and the voice. but anyways back to our waitress who I think saved the night a little everything she recommended was on point!!! definitely get the pork belly, def get the hamburger (I know seafood serving a burger) but it was smash!!

    This was a great recommendation from a mixologist I met while visiting New Orleans. The food was delectable, staff personable and attentive, and drinks perfect. The location was perfect, just a short distance from the overly populated Bourbon Street. The hostess, Mochie, was amazingly accommodating and knowledgeable of the menu. Overall, we greatly enjoyed our visit to this quaint little restaurant. It was just what we needed.

    Hostess was short with us and unwelcoming. We sat at our table for almost 10 minutes and no one approached us at all. Manager was on her phone at the bar and there was only one other table. Staff was just standing around. We ended up moving to the bar to get service

    Very disappointed from start to finish. Loud chaotic energy throughout the place, could barely hear the person sitting across from me. The server took a while to come around and when they did they didn’t attempt to speak up or make it easy to hear them. The charbroiled oysters had wayyyy too much cheese (probably to cover up they were old oysters) and the burger (which was supposed to be one of the best in town) wasn’t cooked right but the server never came around for at least 20 minutes so I ate what they gave me because I was hungry. The drinks were subpar and it was just a very poor, disappointing experience that I’d never send a client to and never wish to relive. Save your money and go to Dragos or literally anywhere else

    Overall this place has much potential. The food and drinks were incredible, the ambience and vibe are spot on. But the service was really spotty and we were left alone upstairs for almost half an hour. The worst of all… there were mice running around the upstairs the entire time. They ran from table to table eating scraps, plants, whatever they could find. Surely the owners know about this issue, but the servers said nothing about it. Pretty awful.

    Based on previous visits, it’s shocking how poorly this one went. While the service is often on the slower side, last night was inexcusable. There were a couple of people at the bar and then two twosomes upstairs. As one of the twosomes, it took 10 minutes to order a drink and an appetizer. After receiving the raw oysters — and the freshness wasn’t up to usual standards, we ordered several shots of rum because the house punch had little if any alcohol at all. The shots never arrived. Neither did the waiter to take the rest of the order, until 45 minutes after initially sitting down. After finally getting a chance to pay our bill, we finished our meal elsewhere. Won’t be back.

    Seaworthy is a fantastic hideaway for pre dinner drinks and oysters. They standout in their ability to consistently show a great spread of PEI, east coast, and gulf oysters. I also highly recommend the pork belly appetizer and to drink, be sure to get the holy water.

    The prices were not bad. Our waiter Greg was friendly and knowledgeable regarding suggestions. Even though we were late by 15mins they accomofated. The food was delicious, the crab fingers, and seafood gumbo are must haves! We ordered the shrimp po boy which was underwhelming and I wouldn’t order again. The Canadian oysters are also a must have!
