Best Cajun Creole southern comfort food. Nice twist on traditional faves. Full of flavor. Just A+

As a return customer, I was disappointed with the food. Not sure if it was just the new items we tried, but very disappointed.

I went for Mardi Gras lunch and wasn't disappointed. I end up ordering most of the appetizers because they are so good. Charbroiled oysters, deviled eggs and the "pies" are fantastic. This is the best Cajun food I have had outside of New Orleans -- very authentic. Laissez les bons temps rouler!

Great cajun/creole menus in a lovely setting. The only drawback is its proximity to the convention center. The place always seems to be overflowing with the crowd from there. It makes normal conversations difficult. Still great food and service.

The food was outstanding, and the value was very impressive. Our server was fantastic, despite half of our party arriving very late. Overall a great experience, and we will definitely be back!

The duck is legendary. Been there several times and the duck is my go to meal. Gumbo is one of the best I’ve had.

One thing that bothered me a lot, for a person that has been there quite often and even recommends it to friends frequently; was the fact that we could not exchange the bread for plain white rice on the BBQ Shrimp entree, it’s the small things. I end up spending $200 that night and I am still bother by the small request that wasn’t granted.

Arrived for Sunday Brunch and Acadiana lived up to expectations. The jazz band was great without being too loud. The food was amazing. Highly recommend the chargrilled oysters and Bloody Mary’s. Service was good and ambiance was reminiscent of New Orleans. Highly recommend.

I went Sunday for brunch with live jazz and three-course menu. The service was amazing and food was to die for. I absolutely adored this place and plan on returning next week to explore a different menu!
