I picked this restaurant for
I picked this restaurant for something different ... one because it was Cajun food and the other to get away from the "norm" of the typical fancy dining places. My girlfriend and I had never eaten Cajun food so it was a first for us. The food was good and fresh. We especially liked the Gumbo. I really liked the corn bread straight from the oven but it was too small. The place was a bit tight but it made for a cozy atmosphere especially if you were on a date. Recommended ... reserve because a few customers came without reservations and they had to wait (not good since there is no place to wait). Parking was not the best and we had to park 3 blocks away, so probably making early reservations better. Overall not a bad choice.

Lucky to have in my neighborhood!
We had a fabulous meal, and this is definitely one of those spots you want to book through Open Table. It's small, cozy, and open just three nights a week.
Stacy took really great care of us, and gave us the most sincere and enthusiastic tips on enjoying our upcoming first trip to Jazz Fest. She was equally engaging with every table in the place...regardless if they were regulars or new faces. She really seems to love what she is doing, as we all should when we go to work.
This isn't a Cajun "themed", its true to itself. From the well executed food (with plenty of vegetarian options too), to the hospitality, to the delicious wine and bread pudding.
I have always said a good business feels like it has a soul. CP has it!

Best NOLA food outside of NOLA!
Delicious! Being from nola, it's always hard to find good nola style foods outside of nola. The food here was great, I felt like I was back home!!

Surprising and delicious
How did I not know this place existed?! Great Cajun food! The gumbo was particularly good.

This restaurant only has 7 tables and a few bar stools, so it can fill up quickly. Even with reservations, others would request certain tables to be reserved, so we ended up next to the door. Despite the small accommodations, we enjoyed our meal. My boyfriend had the rib eye steak and I had the veal chop. Both dinners were cooked to perfection! We wanted medium rare and it was a nice juicy pink inside with a great flavor in every bite. We also had the crawfish beignets as an appetizer, but didn't taste much of the crawfish. The sauce was a bit spicy and had a kick to it which we liked. And we were served 2 pcs of cornbread which was a little spicy as well, but very good. Overall, it was a good experience.

Now That's Good Cajun!
Cajun Pacific, hands down, has the best tasting Gumbo in town! Wait, as a matter of fact, the best soft shell crab po' boys as well. (Just make sure it's in season.) Also the best cornbread. Great food, great service. The space is very cramped, make sure you have reservations.

What's not to like?
Great food, friendly vibe, unique atmosphere and two blocks from home, Well worth the trip even if you don't live nearby. You can book Cajun Pacific for private parties too - about 20 guests. I did and everyone had a wonderful time and enjoyed the food.

Great Cajun Food tucked away
A great neighborhood vibe here. The place seats about 20 people at a time. One chef one woman attending to the guests. Food, comes out hot and very flavorful. Portions are huge, beware. We loved our time and would definitely recommend.
