Fantastic food! We had the crab cakes and the grilled red fish platters. Service from the bartender was fun. A great experience!
— Separate gluten-free menu
GF menu consisted of 5 items. Nothing seemed very appetizing so I opted for trying a cheeseburger and fries minus the bun. I did not ask about cross contamination on the deep frier although I am hardly ever sensitive to them. Burger was mediocre at best. Was not impressed with the meal at all.

They have a GF menu. The waitress was extremely helpful and the kitchen manager came out to make sure about my food. I do have more than just gluten allergies and they cooked my food special. I had the crab cakes and I really enjoyed them.
AMAZING GF CRAB CAKES!!! small gf menu, but if you don’t have a seafood allergy, get the crabcakes! the staff was so nice and the server made sure to state that my crabcakes were gluten free before handing them to me, i didn’t have to ask to verify!
The staff was very knowledgeable. Unfortunately the gf menu is very small. I had the gf crab cakes, which were quite good!
There is a gluten free menu. Very little options. But hey there are some options. Tasty red fish and mashed potatoes. I didn’t get sick and both of my waiters were knowledgeable!
Separate GF menu. Loved the gluten-free crab cakes!
Bad experience ~ very small GF choices and quantity over quality. Would never go again.
I tested the crab cakes twice with Nima both positive. Server was very apologetic.
Very small - about 4-5 items on the gf menu. Got the crab cakes. They were delicious. No stomach issues. Would go back again.
Had delicious gluten free crab cakes! The staff was very knowledgeable of what could be ordered gluten free.
Everything tasted great. Has oysters raw and crabcakes.
Went specifically out of our way to go here. They have 5 items listed on the menu and our server seemed really switched on. Unfortunately have to give this place 2 stars though as another server brought me a meal which contained gluten in it. Our original server whisked it away as soon as possible but damage done. If going here triple check when they bring your food that it's gluten free. My first night in New Orleans was ruined :(
Staff where very friendly but the gluten free options are very limited.
Small menu but are safely and waiter was knowledgeable
Enjoyed the crab cakes, mashed potatoes and greens and was not glutened. service very fast and no queue at lunchtime. The five GF offerings(crab,chicken, fish, shrimp and steak) is limited but I only needed one that I liked and it tasted great!
Crab cakes were excellent. The portions are large. Also had grilled red fish. It was good just disappointed at the very limited gluten free menu.
Having 5 items not representative of the actual menu does not represent gluten friendly to me. Would expect a blackened fish or something gluten free. It wouldn’t be that hard.
Crab cakes!! Knowledgeable and friendly staff made the experience even better!
My BIL works in the kitchens and I live about two blocks away, so this place has become one of my go to’s in the quarter. The GF options (that I know about) are: blackened catfish, blackened chicken, crab cakes (almost as good as meals from the heart) and mashed potatoes.
The menu was limited but the crab cakes were very delicious
Small gluten free menu, only about five or six options, but good ones. The crab cakes were delicious.
They have a gluten free menu. I had the GF crab cakes and fish plate. Both were tasty.
Very good food and the GF crab option was tasty. Good experience there.
I love this place! The crab cakes are amazing!
Had the famous oysters, the crab cakes, creme brûlée and a hurricane. Everything was delicious.
Only 5 GF options: crab cakes, ahi tuna, red fish, chicken, & rib eye. No sauce & only creme brûlée for dessert. Food was good but few options. Service was good but not great. Lots of better GF options in NOLA
That Juli person must be confused with Red Fish Grill
I live in the Quarter full time and despite all the amazing food here, in the Marigny and the CBD, I still have difficulty finding reliably safe food (am a celiac who can't tolerate most of the 8 major allergens too boot). I must have passed this place a hundred times before calling and speaking to Ben, the incredibly knowledgeable manager, who explained exactly what I couldn't have (since that list was actually shorter than the things I *could* have). I mentioned that I was a celiac and he immediately knew to avoid most other allergens, such as soy, without me asking. This means so much to me as I spent years avoiding eating out over fears of cross-contamination or just as bad, feeling like a complete jerk by having to interrogate the servers and chefs who had no idea what I was talking about and usually responded with that look. You know the one. Where they think you're buying into some fad diet perpetuated by Mrs. Paltrow.
In short: If you're visiting the Quarter and are celiac or gluten-free, this place is a must. It's a Ralph B restaurant (a highly-regarded local chef) with lower prices than his other menus (still expect to pay roughly $30-40 for an entree but it will be big enough for three people). My personal favorite is the grilled redfish with lump crabmeat (the sauce does have a bit of real butter but not much), served over some of the most delicious, creative and locally harvested veggies I've ever had and wrap it up with some blueberry sorbet. To wheat-eaters: fear not, you won't taste a difference, just amazing food all around. It's a true French Quarter gem; it is upscale but you are more than welcome to duck in for lunch while wearing sandals and shorts or come by for happy hour and BBQ grilled shrimp in a dress you picked up at Hemline (a great boutique with a store on Chartres and a staff that has basically created my style over the past 7+ years when I walked in with none; from 216lbs to 120, they always found the perfect dress or outfit to make me look amazing for any occasion)
Gluten free crab cakes!! If that's not what you're craving, then skip it entirely, but if it is, run don't walk!!
Great waitstaff and support. great food. had oysters, tuna and redfish. great veggies and garlic potatoes. skip the pecan pie.
Shrimp and Greek salad, no problems. Limited GF menu, but I'm happy.
Not a lot of choices, but what they have to offer is very good. It appears they can only accommodate lunch and dinner. They are not prepared to accommodate breakfast.
It was great to be able to eat crab cakes. I didn't get sick. Service was great.
Good place for seafood, but very limited GF options. The staff was very knowledgable and had safe practices, but the lack of flavor made my meal only average. I think they are so worried about seasonings that contain gluten, that they don't use anything at all. Safe place to eat, but not the best meal for the price.
Oceana has a gluten free menu and cheerful service, which is a plus. However, they're GF choices are limited and bland beyond belief. The grilled redfish only went down with half a bottle of hot sauce on top.
If you're looking for good Cajun GF choices, I definitely suggest you check out Crazy Lobster instead.
cons: pricey, small gf menu. pros: the gf food available is delicious, great service, our server was kind and knowledgeable about the gf situation
Limited gluten free menu (only about 5 or 6 items) but the crab cakes are great and make a good snack or breakfast.
