Best flavored pork chop I’ve ever had. Tender slow cooked type with great flavored sauce. I was pleasantly surprised.

Atchafalaya is consistently outstanding for their service, attitude, food that awakens taste buds in a delightful way. The bartender makes drinks that are quite refreshing. Entire staff are welcoming and happy to see you.

Waiter was rude when we didn’t immediately just want to order drinks, but wanted apps as well. He forgot an entree and never checked back to see if we needed anything. Good quality had gone down since I had last been two years ago.

Scallop tostada was amazing ! A must try, our server was so helpful and kind in explaining everything, the portions as well are friendly and generous! Worth the splurges.
Bread pudding was also great.

It’s a beautiful restaurant and the service is good. The food really isn’t bad it’s just totally under seasoned everything needed salt and it could’ve use some more flavor with seasoning. It was also pretty expensive so we probably won’t be going back

Atchafalaya is one of my favorite restaurants in the city! Last weekend I took my two friends who have never been and now they love it just as much as I do! I will definitely be back and bring more people with me :)

My wife and I had brunch outside, and that was lovely. I was, however a little disappointed with my meal. I had the duck confit and sweet potato hash, and it was light on the duck and sausage (expensive stuff) and heavy on the sweet potatoes (inexpensive).

Otherwise, I have dined here several times before, and always loved it, so we will return again, guaranteed!

Wonderful neighborhood restaurant! Warm, friendly service and great atmosphere day or evening. The food is consistently outstanding, as are the handcrafted cocktails. One of my all time favorite places to eat anywhere in the US.

Tried this restaurant for Valentine’s Day and it was truly disappointing. I was contacted a few days before by the hostess to confirm my indoor reservation. When I arrived they told me my reservation was outside and it was freezing this night. They made accommodations for us but after standing around for about 10 minutes, another couple that walked in after us was offered a drink menu and a much more pleasant greeting. The service was not great for my party. The vibe was weird and the food was not great. Would not recommend.

The atmosphere is very light and festive as you enter the restaurant. The menu has wonderful selections of entrees that would appeal to those wanting
not the "Norm" and yet a very good variety to choose from. Everyone was very pleased with their selections at brunch and the service was exceptional.

I love this place!! I got the soup of the day which was a bisque and it was outstanding!! I got a lemon vodka drink I can’t remember the name but that was also good! And the redfish was cooked perfectly and whatever the bread was on the side was heaven!! Definitely recommend !!

When we entered the restaurant were informed that there is happy hour for drinks. The beer would be half price. I was charged half price, but my colleague was charged full price.

I truly can appreciate the stress that the service industry is under but given that I would’ve expected the service to be better. The service was just OK. Our waitress was nice but not very attentive. Some of the dishes just didn’t have very good flavor and the red fish was not good at all. The drinks and the dessert were fabulous. Once the bar is open I would go back to grab an appetizer and a drink but given that with tip it was nearly $100 a headI didn’t think the Quality of service match the price

Everything was good, not great, which was disappointing based on our previous visit. I found the prices high given the quality of the food was not up to their past meals.
