    Good food and very helpful staff. The only drawback was the very high noise level. We had a difficult time hearing the other people at the table. The other tables were very energetic.

    Overall experience was great! All of our 7 meals were really tasty! The dessert (warm carrots cake drizzled with sauce) was amazingly delicious and topped off the meal! Our server was helpful, pleasant, extremely knowledgeable about the menu and helped make the experience quite enjoyable. The only constructive criticism that I have is that the food could be warmer...the food was not hot enough temperature wise. Otherwise, the overall experience was great and will be a repeat on future visits.

    Our experience was amazing! We had a reservation and were a bit earlier. We were immediately seated. Our server, London, was very helpful and just excellent overall. We shared a cup of the chicken and andouille gumbo. I had the Oysters Superior and Crawfish Beignets. The oysters melted in my mouth. I had been wanting to try the Beignets and they did not disappoint. My daughter had the herb crusted flounder. She isn't even a big seafood fan but she loved it!!!

    The place is great and its not. The food lacks flair and seems to come across as more cafeteria-esque. Servers are burned out. Silver ware never replaced, same utensils used for appetizer, salad and entre - which I find disgusting. Somewhat inattentive and uninterested in guest.

    horrible horrible horrible service. The waitress knew she had tip included so treated us awfully. For instance, my mother (60 year old very sweet woman) kindly asked for a cosmo that’s stronger and the waitress rolled her eyes!! Like actually rolled her eyes at my poor mother. Of course my mom didn’t say anything, but it was unfortunate to witness. Additionally she was very unfriendly throughout our 2.5 hr stay and $400+ bill. She just had no interest in talking to us or clearly doesn’t enjoy working there which speaks volumes of the establishment. I myself have been to superior 20+ times as I live in the area and over the last 6 mos service has really changed for the worse and I hope that changes as your cooks are putting in the work your waiters/waitresses/managers aren’t.

    Absolutely amazing! My daughter and I made reservations to sit at the oyster bar. Our spots were ready and we had a ball. The oysters were exceptional. We ordered our food to go because of the amount of oysters we consumed with joyful conversation. I would recommend Superior Seafood to my enemies. The best way I could turn them into my friends. Bon appétit y’all, Reggie H.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Superior Seafood. The reservation process on-line was simple. We were seated immediately after our arrival at the restaurant. Our server, London, fully understood the menu and suggested several items. He helped pair our wine selection with our food items and took the time to ask why we were in New Orleans. London made our dining experience a wonderful one. We highly recommend Superior Seafood to anyone who wants a great meal, a fantastic experience and a perfect night out on the town.

    I brunched here earlier in the day but brought my husband back for dinner. The waitress forgot to put our appetizer orders in and did not realize it until we almost got our entrees and we asked about them. We still wanted them but it was a little annoying that she did not really take responsibility for it. She seemed to be covering a lot of tables so we extended grace. The blackened catfish dish was great and my husband loved the Carolina chicken sandwich. The crawfish Mac n cheese barely had any crawfish in it so I’d skip that next time! Not worth $13! The $1 raw oysters were great and the large frozen aperol spritz for the price of a small during happy hour was a great deal!

    We went for Sunday Brunch with my daughter, son-in-law and 1 y/o grandson. It was very busy and loud, probably not the best venue for a 1 y/o. The food was very good, even excellent but it took forever to get it, more than an hour. Our waiter was very friendly but seemed over-worked and I had a hard time hearing him. Our booth was tucked into the extreme corner of the main room. Maybe just a bad day. Have eaten there several times previously and always enjoyed our meals. I had Tommys Tummy Time which was delicious and my daughter and wife had blackened redfish, also delicious.
