    Waitress and waiters were AMAZING! Food and drinks were superb. Front desk gentleman was super awesome and attentive. The only complaint would be the woman who was working at the front entry desk. She was not welcoming and kind of rude.

    Sous Chef Zack Peralta is so talented! His Grandma Melba’s olive salad is the perfect compliment to fresh gulf fish. The arugula, cherry tomato, feta salad had just the right amount of the best dressing I have ever tasted. The watermelon sorbet was so flavorful and surprisingly creamy. The perfectly fried crispy oyster were also a treat for the taste buds. This was one of the best meals I have ever eaten!

    Ryan and Katie were amazing. As were the drinks and food. We got red snapper and the filet. Both were superb. As was the bread pudding for dessert. It was much farther than I anticipated from our hotel but they held our table even though we were very late.

    Delicious brunch as always. Recommend a reservation. We had bloody Mary’s, duck hash, quiche, and waffle with peaches. There was live music, not too loud so we could still carry on a conversation. Highly recommend!

    Everything we got was delicious! We started with the crab raviolo. It was phenomenal! We also ordered the red fish and shrimp and grits for our entrees! I can’t rave enough about how delicious everything was! The service was also great! Our server and the hostess were both so friendly and inviting. The whole vibe of the restaurant was welcoming! We’ll definitely be going back the next time we come and will also recommend it to people we know who are traveling here!

    We come to New Orleans 1-2 times a year. The Food here just isn’t the same as when we have come the last 3 years. Deviled eggs just don’t taste the same. They taste like they are from a convince store in all honestly. So sorry to say. Chicken and waffles were a 5/10. And my wife’s Huevos rancheros were more black beans and soggie than anything. Service is still FANTASTIC and ambiance is still great. They just have let the food slip. This used to be our go to place but just won’t be coming back anymore. Sorry, we are sad to see this place come off our future New Orleans plans 😕

    We have lived in the neighborhood for over a year and finally just went to Atchafalaya, for Father’s Day brunch, after hearing great reviews. We started with the “Bywater Bloody”, which is probably the best Bloody Mary we have ever had, made with fresh Tomatillos! Yummy. My husband had the Gumbo appetizer, followed by the Breakfast Risotto. I had the soup du jour, which was a delicious shrimp bisque, followed by the Pan Roasted Gulf Fish. Everything was absolutely amazing and perfectly prepared. We enjoyed the live music and though it was a busy day due to Father’s Day, our server and the remainder of the staff were very attentive. We will be back!

    We were in town for a conference and want to get away from the touristy areas and found this after scrolling Open Table. It was amazing. The owner greeted us at the door. Our server was excellent as well. Don’t sleep on the shrimp and grits or the tres leches bread pudding. It really was a wonderful meal. We drove to dinner and parking was not a problem either. We will definitely be back!
