I’m not one to drive around looking for parking. So i pulled up to the valet. Valet is $10.00. Made reservations on open table. Hostess sat us right away and even offered coat check.

I ordered a poo poo platter of appetizers. I had the charbroiled oysters which were good, some of the oysters were a bit small. The crawfish etouffee was good. The portion was perfect. I also had the trio of devil eggs which i also loved. And i had a side of greens with Benton’s bacon. I would definitely recommend having

Our waiter, the one with the pony tail took our drink orders, came back with the wine. took our meal order and we never saw him until the check came. I was looking forward to another glass of wine with my entrée but that never happened. My wife and I have been her a few times in the past, the food is always good. The service on this night was horrible, and it was not crowded.

I have dined at Acadiana many, many enjoyable times, and I have never had complaints---food, service, ambiance have always been on par. However, on this visit things did not go so well. I had reservations , but was not seated until after a 40-minute wait! I was shocked and surprised.
This really placed a tremendous damper on our dining experience with family visiting us from out of town. Once seated, the service was a little slow; however, I must add, things did kick in and the service was wonderful and our server was awesome. She and the food saved the day.

Sunday brunch is unbeatable. Delicious, authentic, great value. Appetizer, entree, and dessert included in the price with the option to add bottomless bloody Mary’s or Mimosas for $10 more. Great vibe with live jazz during our Sunday brunch.

Outstanding service. Excellent food, and great ambiance. I went with a friend as part of our quest to find "the best Shrimp and Grits in D.C.". We ordered the Shrimp and Grits as well as the Seafood Gumbo....both were outstanding(as were the Grilled Oysters).

Cheers!

First let me say that I lived in Louisiana for 26 years, so I know Louisiana style cooking! I really wanted to like this place but it really fell short. We started with the charbroiled oysters, which were fantastic! Lots of parmesan, butter and garlic and served with a loaf of soft bread for sopping in up. Then the fried green tomatoes with shrimp remoulade started downhill. The shrimp were very good, but the tomatoes were sliced so thinly I don't know what the breading was attached to. The seasoning was good, but there was not tomato flavor at all. My husband had the fried catfish served with hoppin john. It was a beautiful plate, but sadly the catfish was bland and the vegetables were underseasoned. I had the barbeque shrimp. Now, I've had them at Pascal Manale's in New Orleans where they were invented, so I always end up comparing. The sauce was not the same, but still very tasty. It also came with a loaf of soft bread for sopping up the sauce. The good news is that the shrimp were peeled except for the head and tail, which makes it so much easier to eat! The bad news is that the shrimp were so overcooked that they were mushy. Having cooked many shrimp myself, I suspect they cook up a big pot of shrimp and sauce and just leave it simmering until someone orders it. If they had only been freshly cooked it would have been outstanding. The sauce was so good my husband dipped is bland catfish into it! We finished by splitting the pecan tart and asked for vanilla ice cream instead of mint chip. It was delicious, but so rich! Good thing we split it because it was a challenge to eat the whole thing!

After many meals at Acadiana, they never disappoint w/ food, booze, or service. BTW, I have not experienced better grilled oysters, other than in NOLA, than those offered at Acadiana. You have earned my continued loyalty.

I took my wife for Valentine's Day dinner. They chose to have a special package menu and double the price of an entre which was a little tacky...basic meal with 1 beer and 1 Chardonnay should not have cost $148.00. All i had was a prime rib and wifey had the catfish. Food and service was great though!

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.

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.
