Acadiana Ratings and Reviews
My coworker and I️ had the pleasure of dining here today for restaurant week. I’ve heard so many great things about Acadiana that I️ was dying to try. This restaurant did not disappoint one bit! All of the food was absolutely amazing. The biscuits with honey butter, gumbo appetizer, Shrimp and Grits (best to date) and sweet potato turnover were all great. Not only was the food great but the service was even better! The attention to detail and entire restaurant staff working towards ensuring the diner has a memorable experience are out of this world. So happy I️ was able to finally dine here and I️ will most definitely be back soon!
Great taste of southern food in DC! Some coworkers and I went here for a restaurant week lunch and we really enjoyed it. The biscuits were fantastic, and the noise level was perfect for a workday lunch. Being able to try three different courses was fantastic. I would definitely go back again.
For Sunday brunch service was slow but not out of the norm for the high volume of customers. My friend had a few dishes that were under seasoned, but the waitress was very accommodating (offering substitutions etc). The prefixe menu was a good deal, but I'll probably avoid those underseasoned dishes.
A friend and I had a wonderful experience here. Everything was delicious.. we had Charbroiled Oysters, Shrimp & Grits and Beignets for dessert. Very authentic and flavorful. The jazz was the perfect touch as well, not intrusive but enjoyable. Great experience here all around!
Acadiana is my favorite restaurant. This was my first visit for dinner as I usually go for brunch. Very cozy and peaceful. My name was printed on my menu with a birthday message, nice touch!
Our coffee could have been hotter along with the fried green tomatoes but the overall food was delicious. Still my #1 restaurant in D.C.
From start to finish everything was on point. The barrel aged Manhattan's, the turtle soup, and the charbroiled oysters were all a great start. Service was attentive and happy, unusual for .any DC restaurants, and we wanted for nothing.
The duck is just flat out awesome and the veal and grits give it a run for its money. Desert and cordial rounded out the evening unrushed and delicious.
One of the very few restaurants in the DMV that offers authentic, original, Creole-style, Nawlins food that you will keep coming back for. The service was great and the location is easy to get to. The restaurant is spacious and can accommodate all size groups.
Overall dining experience was good. The food was delicious, the server was friendly, and the restaurant has a good ambience. My only issue is how long it took to get out food out. We were heading to an event at 11 p.m. so I figured a 9:30 reservation/ 1.5 hours was more than enough time to eat and get there. Unfortunately we didn't get it appetizers until 45 minutes after we sat down, so that threw us off schedule off the bat. I ended up having to leave my friends and skip dessert so that I could check in at the 11pm event. The food I had was tasty and the waiter has handsome and a fun spirit, so I'll let the delay slide 😉
We were so disappointed with our dining experience at Acadiana on New Year's Eve night. The service was pleasant, but very slow. Even the alcoholic beverage service was tortoise-paced.
Food delivery was slow, and after-dinner coffee was served cold. Key, favored menu items were removed from the special holiday menu, and that was disappointing--understandable, but disappointing. While the signature etouffee was delicious, the crispy duck was over salted and the accompanying greens were overly sweet.
The trout was mediocre, and the sweet tea creme brulee was trying too hard to be special, when the regular creme brulee is exquisite. I'm not sure what happened on New Year's Eve, but I certainly hope that in 2018 Acadiana returns to its normal status of excellent cuisine in Washington, DC.
Arcadiana is my go to spot for Sunday brunch. The bottomless Mimosa's and Bloody Mary's make for a festive time. The entree price includes appetizer, and dessert. I hade the veal and grits which was supreme. Grits were fresh, spicy, and the veal well braised and delicious. My companions enjoyed shrimp and grits and the eggs benedict all of which came to the table hot and ready to enjoy. The appetizers including the Boudain Balls were especially flavorful. Want a great spot for brunch with live jazz, a friendly crew and a clever and thoughtful chef? This is your place.
The quality of the food has really declined here in the past few years. Soups were good but entrees were poor. Crab cakes were mushy and reds fish was tasteless with poor presentation. Desserts were terrible. Restaurant was only 1/3 full but Manager insisted on sitting us in back by noisy kitchen with ugly view even though we insisted on sitting in main dining room. We were told that this was more fair to their servers and allocation of resources. We were told to take it or leave it. Very rude. They were understaffed and it showed. I will never go back.
