Everything exceeded expectation. Our server had the best possible reaction to my dumb question about a desert ever; just so you know, the Blue Cheese Flan is Flan-sized. Period. Full stop.

Seriously, this place is serious delicious and all the staff bent over backwards to make sure we had a great experience in their establishment.

Corey K., thank you for your amazing dinner service. Please extend our thanks to your colleagues as well. You and your staff made my wife’s birthday one to remember! We hope to see you soon.

Absolutely delicious! The staff was lovely, friendly and knowledgeable. Between the four of us we ordered: the fried green tomatoes with crab meat (YUM, a true highlight!), two orders of the crab cakes with poached eggs (also out of this world), the duck hash (not a contender for our favorite thing, but very, very good), a salad (exceeded all expectations for a salad), the "good morning Vietnam" bloody mary (fantastic), the milk punch (scrumptious) and multiple bellinis. If you only have time for one brunch in New Orleans, consider Atchafalaya!

Meal and service were excellent! Dined outside and Leaven (Sp) our waiter did a great job and the oyster appetizer, shrimp and grits, mushroom entrees were some of the best we’ve had. Will definitely go back!

Dinner for my wife's birthday...after not being back to Atchafalaya for a few years, we were so pleased (and wondering why we took so long getting back) with our evening... From the delicious appetizers, fried green tomatoes, fried oysters, blue crab raviolo, tuna crude, to the entrees of pork chop, grouper, tuna and shrimp&grits, to the delectable bread pudding, the meal was a delight for us all. It was great to see a wonderful restaurant exceed our expectations, especially after COVD...great staff, great ambiance, and of course great food, made this a glorious experience. Thank y'all.

The brunch was outstanding. Bananas Foster waffle was a sweet treat. Crab cakes with soft boiled egg a great take on eggs Benedict. Don’t miss the bacon or fried oysters. Jazz band was a bit loud but they were excellent.

Gumbo was just OK. Goat cheese salad with strawberries was outstanding. Chicken and waffles were good, but way too much breading on the chicken. Potions enormous. Totally disappointing we’re the blueberry hand pies. The pie crust overwhelmed the blueberry filling. Taste of blueberries was absent. It blows me away that those in charge would even put this item on the menu. It was that bad. Well be back, but not for the chicken or the hand pies.

Lovely place. Fried green tomatoes were lightly breaded, crispy on the outside and tender inside. The remoulade sauce was sweet and tangy. The greens added a nice crunch. My husband shared his Brussel sprouts which were delicious. They included goat cheese, which I don't always like, but this cheese was creamy and delicious. Staff were warm and fun. I highly recommend.

Good quality ingredients, however much of the food was a bit bland and under-seasoned. Glad we gave it a try but it won’t be on our list of places to visit again with so many other quality restaurants in the city.
