From beginning to end it was awful! We waited 20 minutes after being seated to even get a server to our table. The food was NOT good. Our mussels were bad, the oysters were not even like an oyster...just bad all around. Our whole dining experience was 2 hours and 45 minutes and only had 2 drinks brought to our table. Our server was gone half way through and someone one else showed up to start waiting on us. I will not being going back to this restaurant, ever!

I never come to New Orleans without eating here! You must get the blue crab ravioli, it never leaves their menu for a reason. Levin is an excellent server with so much wine knowledge. Can’t wait to go back.

Everything was perfect. The service was attentive, yet left us to our conversation and food. The cocktails were delicious. The wine list is plenty. The menu has wonderful options suitable for anything you're in the mood for. The ingredients are fresh. We can't wait to return.

This has been our “go to” place for quite some time. I was somewhat disappointed in the lack of seafood entrees. The fish stew (bouillabaisse) was really the only selection

Went here for me and my girlfriends 3 year anniversary and had a great time. They went out of their way to make our experience one that we’ll remember. On top of that the food was incredible. Highly recommend to anyone!

Service was excellent. Corn muffins were delicious, as was the soup of the day. Shrimp and Grits unfortunately were flavorless, which was disappointing. Husband ordered the Pork Chop and said it was delicious and the greens served with it were very good. Our waiter and all of the staff were excellent.

Outside table on Louisiana have pretty good ambiance. Those on the side street not so much. Service was quite good, and certainly better than expected for the outside. Kitchen slow on the cornbread, but rest of food timely and excellent.

The waiter and the bartender provided wonderful service and were very friendly. I am rating our experience fair because, although we had a reservation, we had to wait 25 minutes for our table. For this reason the Host had us wait by the bar, which did not have any seats. The space was quite small and awkward to stand at. We bought two drinks, one of which the bartender made up based on my taste—it was delicious. By the time our table was ready, the restaurant was out of several dishes. Our waiter was very apologetic, and he provided wonderful service, but we opted to leave after sharing an appetizer since none of the entree options we were interested in were available. There are like 7 or 8 entree options and literally half of them were unavailable.

Was hoping for outside jazz music since that is allowed now so requested an outdoor table, assuming the courtyard. I was instead seated on the sidewalk with no jazz on site. Other places had outdoor jazz and this place advertises their jazz brunch so...

Amazing staff food and service. My boyfriend got the short rib and I got the gulf fish of the day. We also got the blue crab ravioli, an oyster special, and the bread pudding.

Atchafalaya is one of our favorite resturants. Normally I give it an automatic 5 stars but this time I'm only giving 4. The reasoning for this was the service was not at its usual level. Our waiter was very "sterile" with hardly any interaction. We might as well have taken our food to go.

Good restaurant. I have to be honest. It’s a nice place. But would I make a special trip here? No. Would I come back no. Not that the food was bad. But it was just ok. Nothing that supports the hype.

Again you are in NOLA. Tough market. Many places.

Cafe Atchafalaya is a hidden gem. We discovered this special place over ten years ago, and it's been one of our favorites ever since. It's our go-to place to take all of our out-of-town friends, too! Do yourself a favor and book a reservation here — you won't be disappointed!

Eating inside with a great music or outside with the beautiful green view of the nature around you, both are perfect. Waiters are so mindful and kind. I had some best recommendations for the food and it has been one of the best dinner of my life. Tastes are perfect and the timing between plates also! I really enjoyed everything in this restaurant and I'm sure to come again.

We went there for our Anniversary because of their Wagyu steak. We placed our order and the waiter didn’t indicate that they were even low on supply then came back and said they were out of it. Very disappointing. The attention that was paid to our table was not what was expected in a fine dining restaurant. The last time I had been there was a wonderful experience and I wanted our special night to be the same.
