This is probably one of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to. The food was incredible! I got the shrimp and grits and it was to die for. The owner, Tony, came to talk to us and was the nicest, sweetest man. He gave us a free appetizer (the raviolo which was so delicious!!) and a glass of wine. A Louis native so we bonded over that. This restaurant is a must. Friendly staff, amazing food, owner is attentive and caring with his guests. I can’t tell you the last time I had such a wonderful dining experience! Will be back anytime I’m in NOLA. Thank you!!!

Fantastic sauces, incredibly fresh seafood, delicious cocktails. Everything about this restaurant was perfect. It is a little noisy because everyone is having fun, even the outside tables, but man what a great dinner option!!

After having a less than stellar meal at one of the old grande dame restaurants in the Quarter, it was a delight to enjoy a truly stellar meal at Atchafalaya.

I had the chicken and waffle. Oh my goodness! Highly recommend. The others in my party had duck hash (fabulous), and two orders of the bayou benedict. Skip the $5 biscuit—griddle cooked and hard. All else, wonderful.

Delicious food. Best meal we had in our 4 day visit. Also a bit more reasonable cost. Unfortunately we were seated next to the “loud” table, but we didn’t
complain. All staff very friendly and competent

Our server took 20 minutes to greet us or take a drink order. He was spending his time talking to another table and put their orders in and got them drinks before we were brought any drink. The food was amazing as always!

Absolute stellar dining experience! This place is a must visit when you are in New Orleans. Our small party was celebrating a mile stone birthday and they made it a wonderful dining experience. We ordered the shrimp and grits and the pork chop and will return again as soon as possible

Amazing food. Fried green tomatoes were excellent as was the curry entree. Tres leches bread pudding for dessert was to die for. Treat yourself to a glass of the Yalumba muscat for dessert. It’s worth it!

Celebrated my husband’s birthday. Outdoor seating was imperative. There was great outdoor seating with wonderful atmosphere. The temperature wasn’t too cold, but they had heaters if necessary. The service was perfect. Everyone had a wonderful attitude and made dining out the experience it should be. Our food was fresh, delicious and beautifully plated. Everyone left happy, full and looking forward to returning. Thanks for a great evening!

Delicious food! We loved the blue crab raviolo, shrimp and grits, blue cheese flan, and everything else. Friendly staff. Well-appointed restaurant but unstuffy and relaxed, just what you’d want in New Orleans.

Food is superb and the service is excellent. In addition to my all time favorite, the Free form Blue Crab Raviolo, tonight we shared the perfectly seasoned and Fried Oysters, and the Gumbo. favorites were the Fried Oysters and the Blue Crab Raviolo to start, the Gumbo. The Gulf Fish Curry and the chilli-rubbed Pork Chop were delightful as usual, as was the Pear and Ginger Sorbet we split for dessert!
Probably my favorite restaurant in New Orleans, can't recommend it enough.
