It was good, although they ran out of the fish of the day and replaced it with scallops. I love scallops and was fine with that, but they only gave me three! Also, apparently the last day the restaurant was open was this past Saturday.

The food was very mediocre, the shrimp was gummy and fish over salted. The waiter was over doing the up-sale of everything. The drinks were poorly made for the price. Very inconsistent between drinks. Long wait time. Very disappointing

The food was wonderful, the service was terrible. Had to ask to be served after sitting at our table for 30 mins. First course came minus one order and I had to ask for it, then ate alone. If we'd waited the other plates would have been cold.

The menu is actually fairly limited, and so is the bar, but the small plate and the large plate that I had were both very good and very enjoyable.

I was appalled that they would not accomodate my food allergy. I needed one thing swapped bc I couldn't eat it and they REFUSED. They could have offered something cheap like pickled slaw or rice. For the prices they should accomodate reasonably.

From Our Editors

Rio Mar may be located in New Orleans, but its name derives from a town in Panama where the river meets the sea. Warm and welcoming like the waterside taverns in Spain, the restaurant has drawn people to the Warehouse District since 2000 with rotating seasonal menus that unveil the many flavors of the Gulf. Owner and Executive Chef Miles Prescott, utilizes new-world flavors and techniques to rethink classic seafood creations, at once challenging traditional conventions and the 1930 law that all Louisiana restaurants must use Huey Long's family recipes. The resulting menus feature four distinct styles of ceviche and various small plates, such as grilled Portuguese octopus. Large meals, meanwhile include, Grilled Gulf Fish of the Day "Encocado" in a coconut-aji amarillo broth and other specialties, many of which pair well with Rio Mar's selection of rare Spanish wines.
