Atchafalaya Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Nawlins off the beaten path
Chose this out of the way restaurant based on trip advisor Found the food too "pretentious " Nice service staff, but they towed the political correctness order too closely probably because the chef was dining himself,( nearby). Probably will not go back.

One of neighbor favorites but the might we went the restaurant was off. Took forever to get a drink. At the being they only had one waiter for the whole room. The swordfish I had was good, mussels ok. The crabmeat ravioli was very good. The veg risotto was a big disappointment. No flavor at all. Tried adding salt and pepper and parm cheese, to no available. Since the tourist have found the restaurant have they let their standards down? Hope not.

Drinks were watered down, service was slow, seating was isolating, and the main dish was dried out and uneatable. When complained to the waiter they merely apologized. It was the last serving of the night and it was apparent the staff and cook wanted to go home. Very disappointing experience. After it being recommended on Trip advisor and a local New Orleans bar tender.
We arrived early and sat at the bar with the very friendly bartenders. We had excellent drinks and scrumptious fried green tomatoes. Dinner was even better. The service was friendly and most knowledgeable of the entire menu. The food was exquisite!!!

this place was Fantastic! Great food well presented and very tasty. Service was wonderful and attentive but not overbearing at all. Great wine list and a knowledgeable person to help with your selection. Be sure to try their signature cocktail and their flan with a hint of blue cheese.

Fried green tomatoes with the Drum, and a cheese plate. Great job.
Excellent food & service.
Four of us ordered different entrees and enjoyed our meals. My red snapper was a little dry and I overlooked the fact that it had fried greens of some sort. The others ordered, steak, pork chops and another fish dish. They all raved about their choices. Would definitely recommend! Very good service too.

Took my husband for a special birthday here. It was absolutely a great choice in a city full of wonderful dining choices. I had the swordfish and my husband had the tuna. We are early diners so the restaurant was nicely quiet when we arrived but was filling up and getting lively by the time we left.

Reliable service and pleasant atmosphere. Good choice to take friends from out of town. The staff goes out of the way to fulfill special requests. This restaurant is on my list of 10 local restaurants that I try to regularly patronize.

Fantastic service and amazing food. We came in to visit NO and so glad we got a recommendation to eat here. It's a can't miss
We were visiting New Orleans and found this restaurant on Open Table. Had a superb dinner, wait staff was very friendly and attentive. Cocktails and wine were good.
Mother's Day 2016
I just moved to NOLA and this was recommended by a co-worker. Got there a little early for our res but were not immediately seated, which was curious given the number of open tables. Bar service was extremely slow given the crowd that night, but we were seated by our res time and everything flowed smoothly from there. Food was wonderful and they packed our leftovers impeccably. Overall good experience, although given the level of this restaurant in terms of price and reputation, the greeting and drinks experience could certainly be improved.

Hadn't been in a while. Was really impressed. Has definitely stepped up the menu. Those grits are everything!! Will be back soon.
Very impressive food, service and overall value.
This was our second visit, it was as good as the first. We will not hesitate to return to this outstanding restaurant!
A real gem
Everything was outstanding. This is a charming place, and the food, service, ambience - were all I could ask for. The salad with apples and warm goat cheese was a bit unusual - and probably the best salad I can remember having. Loved it.

Really enjoyed the duck hash and Korean pork belly. The duck fat sazerac was also an unusual but delicious drink worthy of its place on Atchafalaya's incredible drink menu.
Order the swordfish!

Best Hidden Gem in NOLA
This place had superb food, outstanding service and fantastic ambiance. A bit hidden away in suburbia so a bit hard to find but well worth the trip and highly recommend to anyone. Don't miss this place and make it a must - stop on your restaurant tour in NOLA!

Took client looking for a genuine NOLA experience away from the quarter. Absolutely wonderful meal/experience and a big success. I had swordfish in a green curry with crawfish tails!!

This is a lovely restaurant with delicious and perfectly portioned fare. I was delighted to have a cocktail with fernet, it was very potent and did not disappoint. I started with the PEI mussels which were delicious, the double cut pork chop was huge but had I not had the mussels I would've been able to handle it and their special ice cream was light and lovely. The husband had their house salad and the swordfish, he found both delicious but the swordfish was a little spicy. His dessert was the blueberry bread pudding which he thoroughly enjoyed. My only disappointment was that all the fish dishes came with crawfish, which I'm allergic to.

The Bloody Mary bar!!! So fun!! And do t miss the Eggs Atchafalaya!!
One of my faves, and boy they don't disappoint! In a town FULL of great dining options, this place stands out. Just to walk past the sidewalk grills where they are preparing the chargrilled oysters, to the perfect truffled fried chicken, the oyster salad or the filet, its ALL good here!
We went here on our first night in New Orleans and had a wonderful meal. The roasted oysters were outstanding. Red snapper was great. My husband said his swordfish was great, too. While this place is known for its brunches, it was a wonderful dinner experience.

We running late due to the fact that we landed that afternoon and headed straight over for our reservation. They were very accommodating and they were packed as well. Drinks were great. Sercice was kind and knowledgable. Great brunch on a rainy day!

Lovely restaurant with good food but too noisy! We could barely have a conversation. Other friends had the same problem. They need to do something about the noise.
This Resturant delivers in every way! Great food, service, decor and wine! Don't miss it if your in New Orleans.
Was disappointed to have to wait to be seated 25 min after our reservations, despite open tables. after being seated it took waiter 10 minutes to first approach the table, and then another 10 to come back to tell us the specials. We were very hungry and eager at that point to get an appetizer order in while discussing the menu, but was instead rudely interrupted and asked to wait to order with our entrees. Immediately put a damper on the mood of my wife and mine. It was nearly an hour since we arrived for our reservation before we even were able to order. The food was also disappointing, we only ate half of our plates. Not for great portion but lack of enthusiasm. After we left we ended up grabbing a couple drinks and a small bite on magazine st around the corner.
This is one of the great secrets in NOLA. Off the beaten trail, Atchafalaya has the great ambiance, food and drink of downtown/French Quarter but in relaxed Uptown. No hassle parking, beautiful neighborhood. Food and drinks are outstanding - excellent stand-bys; shrimp and grits, but excellent creative creole dishes and awesome fish. Go -but make sure you book long in advance - the place isn't huge. Always fully booked when I go.
Charming, Soulful & Delicious!
My husband and I had an incredible dining experience here on a Tuesday at noon! We walked in to live music that was bluesy & soulful! Fantastic! The brunch menu had great choices and was so delicious! And our server was charming! The ambiance was perfect for our midday lunch anniversary celebration! Loved this place!!
Chargrilled oysters were amazing. Shrimp and grits was good. Bread pudding yummy. Staff very friendly and attentive.
TOP NOLA RESTAURANT
Love the Bloody Mary bar! Finally found a great brunch in NOLA that has reasonable prices and located in such a nice uptown neighborhood!
We are from out of town and came about 1 1/2 years ago. Loved it then so came back for another wonderful meal. A New Orelans style menu with a unique twist on regional dishes. The grilled oysters were fabulous. Delish food and craft cocktails! Highly recommend!
Atchafalaya has been a favorite of mine for as long as I've lived in New Orleans - over 9 years. It was the place I went with my family before my college graduation and the place I went for my best friend's white coat ceremony. Unfortunately this past dining experience at Atchafalaya did not go well. Of my party of five, three of us woke up in the middle of the night from food poisoning symptoms. It was so severe it cost two us our last day of Jazz Fest and has cost me three days of work. The food tasted good in the moment, but the sickness we felt didn't make the taste worth it.
Oustanding Dining Experience
Atchafalaya is in my neighborhood and I used to go all the time; however, I have not been since the new chef started. It was superb. Menu contained some of the old favorites and the new items were fantastic. I highly recommend Atchafalaya.
