Excellent brunch! I echo other reviewers that rave about the fried green tomatoes- they were fantastic! Chicken and biscuits portion was huge - chicken was so crunchy and crispy. Shrimp and grits was delicious. Make your own Bloody Mary bar was well stocked- but only complaint is it’s a little crowded in the bar area while you are mixing up your drink. Comfortable setting and excellent service- Josh was friendly and knowledgeable

The restaurant was running behind on reservations, but the manger was very apologetic and bought our party a round of drinks. Food was great!! The service was great, as well!

We had a reservation but still waited over an hour to be seated, and were treated quite poorly by the front of house staff during this time. I have always loved coming to Atchafalaya when I'm in town, but if this is how the restaurant is to treat its customers, I may have to find another place in the future.

We had a wonderful meal here, which includes hostess greeting, cocktails, entrees, and service. The restaurant was busy but service never lagged. Our waiter was great, offering suggestions but never pushing. He also carried one of those crumb sweepers so our table was always crumb-free. Just one of those niceties you don’t see many places.

The food was great. There was a band playing so it wasn’t quiet (which wasn’t an issue for us).

The waiter took way too long to bring our second bottle of wine. We had to ask him four times, and it came well after the main course.

OMG the best. Wish we were in town longer for more meals there. Great combinations of fresh ingredients and flavors. Service was over the top with wait and follow up service. We will return for diner and brunch.

Cute, cozy brunch and dinner place in a residential area with friendly and attentive service. A bit cramped and loud. Nice menu selections. Food was good not great - we found it surprisingly under-seasoned. I had to ask for hot sauce and add extra salt and pepper to both the appetizer (fried green tomatoes with remoulade) and main course (eggs Benedict with crab cake). This is very unusual, in my experience, for a NOLA restaurant.

The Atchafalaya Restaurant met all our expectations. We had a party of 10 from Baton Rouge to Fairhope, Alabama in for the game and the hostess and servers were great. The Bloody Mary bar was a good way to get started and the appetizers and entrees were great. We will be back.

As always, I had a stellar evening. A special thank you to our server, Trever. He was a pro. Every part of the meal delicious and on point, the red fish in particular. This is of no surprise, I've always had an exceptional experience here after 25 years of patronage.

Jerome, thank you so much for making the evening so special. My Niece really loved it and thinks I am a rock star. But in truth, you and your staff (FOH and BOH) are the rock stars. I am certain under your management Atchafalya will continue its exception legacy.

Looking forward to seeing you again in May.

Best regards,
Matthew Morgan

This place never disappoints. Whenever i come to NOLA I come here for a meal. The bloody Marys are great. The star of the show this time was the fried green tomatoes and the bread pudding. Also make a point of getting the milk punch.

The atmosphere was eclectic, and the restaurant breathed elegance at the same time. Our food was perfectly balanced between nuanced flavors and classic preparations. We were delighted with every course, but we were particularly happy with the cauliflower steak on special the evening we dined, the wagyu ribeye paired with a delicious variety of perfectly cooked mushrooms, and the blue cheese flan. I will sing Atchafalaya's praises to all who will listen.

Excellent food in an unpretentious environment. I love the vibe, service and food selection. One of the best places I ever eaten I'm the world. Everything by everyone at my table was enjoyed immensely. Here's some of our picks - Loiusanne, Fried Green Tomatoes, Gumbo, Chicken & Biscuits, Bloody Mary, Greens, Tuna, Flan, Bread Pudding

a super fun spot for a sunday brunch. Was loud because of the jazz combo - but we knew what we were getting into before we got there. The Oyster Stew was sooooooooo good. Would be happy with just a bucket of that - but the fried green tomatoes were also amazing. The guys both got the duck hash and were delighted. And the Cajun Benedict was just genius - nothing like I'd ever had before and now something I'm going to make at home every chance I get.
