Atchafalaya Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

Went here for dinner and arrive about 20 minutes early. We sat at the quaint bar upon entry and ordered two delicious cocktails. The bartender was terrific and gave us some great local suggestions to catch while in Nola. It was fun to watch him make our drinks and we enjoyed talking with him. We were seated a little early and moved to our table. Not really a bad table in the place so our table was perfect. Our meal was absolutely delicious from the bread and butter to the very last crumb we ate. The chef, who coincidently is from our hometown, actually came out to meet us and shake our hands which was completely unexpected and above and beyond. We will definitely come back to this gem! Go, you won't regret it!

The best dish was the french fries. Everything else was just okay. We didn't think it was worth the price. As always, we were very thankful for the meal--we realize some people don't get to eat at all. BUT as far as restaurants go--there are so many more restaurants in New Orleans that have much better tasting food. All that said, the service and ambience were both outstanding and that certainly counts for a lot.

Everything was great. We were very pleased. And it was clear that the neighborhood has a strong relationship with the restaurant. Among the food we ate, Atchafalaya's shrimp and grits, fried green tomatoes, and flan were as good as we've ever eaten anywhere.

First time at brunch, been on the NOLA bucket list for a good long time. Lively afternoon entertainment provided by a three piece jazz band, a bustling Bloody Mary bar and dining rooms packed to the brim with delighted diners. Everything was fantastic and hope to return soon to try dinner!

Great brunch spot! Came on a Saturday to a wonderful jazz band, excellent food, and an AMAZING bloody mary bar. That green tomato juice is something I'll be dreaming of until our next trip to New Orleans. They were highly accommodating (I wanted to stay away from pork even though it was a primary ingredient in my desired dish), and the service was excellent. The only thing I will mention was how incredibly crowded it was getting when we left (around 1:45). Reservations seem to be an absolute MUST on the weekends. However, thanks to OpenTable that was a piece of cake to do!

We have enjoyed many wonderful dinners at Atchafalaya (loooove the crabmeat ravioli, shrimp& grits, blue cheese flan and creme brulee!!) and was super excited to go for brunch with my honey! Our meal was lush, decadent and yummy! Eggs Atchafalaya, French Toast, Best Grits, Bacon, Coffee..Rachel and Anna rocked the service. Thanks for a wonderful morning!!

Stopped by for brunch. Was early for reservations since we were not sure about streetcar and visiting from Fl. They very graciously accommodated us. The food was amazing..had the duck hash and enjoyed their fabulous Bloody Mary bar. Would absolutely revisit.

We have always loved Atchafalaya but hadn't been for a while. Guess we just got lazy and stayed close to the Quarter. But thankfully we ventured Uptown and again found that the food was absolutely, amazingly wonderful. We shared a soft shell crab appetizer that was terrific. I had the redfish with shrimp and clams, and must say it's one of the best fish dishes I've ever had in NOLA--and I've eaten a lot of fish. My partner had the risotto which he also loved. Beautiful restaurant. Good service. Good (little pricey) wine list. Too full for dessert!! Going again soon!!!

Wonderful Garden District restaurant with fresh, innovative dishes. The fried green tomatoes with crab were outstanding and the ravioli was superb. Fish dishes were fresh and cooked perfectly. Loved the small corn muffins and rolls. Warning that the dirty rice is very spicy with large jalapeño slices. Good wine selection reasonably priced.

Wonderful restaurant off the beaten path that is absolutely worth finding. Food is exquisite and we recommend going for Sunday brunch. Bloody Mary bar is amazing. Bananas Foster french toast and shrimp and grits are our favorites.

We went for jazz brunch. The food and service was great but the band wasn't there for a while and then took a long time setting up. So after spending over an hour at "Jazz" brunch, we left having only heard pop music over the sound system. It completely ruined the ambiance. VERY disappointing.
