Ate outside and the weather was perfect. As we left I walked inside, only to find out that there was live music. What fun! Yummy food and the ambiance was wonderful.

Upon arrival we were asked for proof of vaccination, which was not noted to bring, we are not from this area and have never been asked at a restaurant for it. After telling the host we didn’t bring them, he paused and started looking puzzled. My husband then asked if seating was available outside on the patio, which the host responded to as yes, so we were seated about three feet away from the street at a busy corner. This was not the atmosphere I was looking for. The waiter made up for the uncomfortable seating with his service, and the food was impressively tasty. I will not be returning to this restaurant as I felt that I was treated as if I was an outcast and put in time out on the corner after not carrying around my vax card, even though I showed up masked. There are way too many other top restaurants in New Orleans that will give much nicer hospitality.

Atchafalaya has the best Shrimp 'n Grits and Waffle (Bananas Foster-style) I have ever had. Located in a really unique part of New Orleans, you almost feel like you are in a different city were it not for the signature, gorgeous trees that line Louisiana Avenue. Will definitely be back next time we visit. And there will definitely be a next time.

From start to finish, everything was exceptional. Our table of 5 tried 4 appetizers, 5 different entrees and 3 different desserts and there wasn’t a thing we didn’t enjoy. Service was also amazing. If had been a while since I had been for dinner since brunch is always so amazing, but we couldn’t have made a better choice of restaurant to spend time with friends and enjoy a fantastic meal.

Always love Atchayfalaya. Unfortunately our reservation was late so missed out on my favorite entree but substituted poached eggs, bacon, and grits. All very good. My daughter and husband had the shrimp snd grits and we had the oyster appetizer and deviled eggs. A little bubbly added nicely. Our server was very good. The band played today, which was enjoyable. A very nice experience.

Anytime I come to Atchafalaya, I am never disappointed! The waiters are always exceptional and very experienced with the menu! I also LOVE the brunch, it’s in fact my favorite time to go to the restaurant; the banana foster waffles are EVERYTHING 🥺. I honestly could go on and on about this place, but my best advice? OUTDOOR SEATING!

Very cute cozy spot for brunch. Wait staff was friendly. Hostess was friendly . Loved the Goddard Bellini. It was like the wine version of a frozen bellini. I had the watermelon mimosa and it tasted very fresh, making it refreshing. I chose the Petite Filet with a side of scrambled eggs! It was all great and the avocado chimichurri was a great touch

We went for brunch and the food was absolutely delicious. Jazz playing in the background was wonderful. The only thing that wasn't great was the Bloody Mary ...seemed to have some sort of Italian seasoning or something in it and we did not care for it.
