Atchafalaya Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Two words: Jazz Brunch! This spot was perfect for the two of us (out-of-towners) for a jaunt to the Garden District. We got sat pretty soon after we arrived even though we were early for our midafternoon reservation, which was nice. We ordered a bottle of champagne and a carafe of oj since there was no bottomless option (unfortunate since I really wanted to try the Bloody Mary bar, but this was more cost-effective) and an order of the fried green tomatoes with a crab slaw - which was very yummy. For entrees, we'd recommend the Korean Po' Boy and the Shrimp and Grits! Would definitely go back when we're in town - and bring friends!
My son and I had the perfect Mother's Day brunch today. Monica was our awesome and darling server and our meal was delicious. He had the chicken and biscuits and I enjoyed shrimp and grits. This is always one of our favorite brunch spots! 5 stars consistently.
Ate brunch here twice on four day trip. Would have gone on Sunday, but booked for Mother's Day. Very friendly staff. Solid bloody mary bar. The duck hash was amazing. Had it twice. Epitome of southern friendly neighborhood restaurant. I wish it was in my neighborhood!
Atchafalaya has become one of our "go to" places, especially with people from out of town.
It has authentic casual New Orleans feel, with really good food. The décor is different, but appealing. The gumbo is one of the best I have ever had. Even though the menu is somewhat limited, there is something there for everyone. It really is a "neighborhood gem."
My friends and I really enjoyed our brunch at Atchafalaya! Loved the Bloody Mary bar and all our food was incredible. Outstanding service- the staff was on point taking our orders and on top of refills during our visit. Love the whole look of the place- the ambiance is great. Definitely a must stop on your next trip to the Big Easy!
Delicious flavorful local cuisine. Authentic seasoning, attention to detail, yet relaxed and very special. One of the best dining experiences I have ever had. The server was friendly and knowledgeable but relaxed and un-coached. He knew his stuff. The atmosphere was lively and fun but somehow remained intimate. Will have fond memories of Atchafalaya always!! Representative of all of the best New Orleans has to offer!
This is our favorite place for brunch, but we tried the dinner this visit. Excellent bar and wine selections. Chargrilled oysters are excellent. Goat cheese salad also very good. Meatballs with wild boar and crawfish sounds strange, but is excellent. All food is very good and creative. Worth the trip.
Upon our arrival, we were greeted by owner, Tony Tocco. We requested a table outside and Tony made that happen despite being a bit short on help fir the evening. We had 4 different staff members wait on our table, they were working as a team to help out the bar tender who was actually responsible for our outdoor seating. Each staff member was pleasant and engaging, it was quite fun having a new person bring each dish. We started our dinner with fried green tomatoes and raw oysters in the half shell. Both were delicious. My husband also had the Duck Fat Sazerac which he said was smooth and tasty. For dinner my husband had the wild boar and crawfish meatballs. A very different combination of foods, they were moist and very tasty. I had the hanger steak which was cooked to perfection. The entire experience was wonderful and we will definitely return on our next trip to New Orleans.
