Was just what the doctor ordered. I spent a good while on open table, sifting through. It was our 12 year anniversary. We love uptown the most, so, something new with regular tables. Not sitting in someone else’s lap. Off the regular path.
We had a few apps. Oysters stood out, the fish was cooked good and pork chop was great.
The note worthy was the amazing blue cheese flan. Flipping awesome. We bought two more to go. Thanks again!

The food was great, I guess. Really the terrible service took over my entire experience of the restaurant. It was a guy with gray salt and pepper hair and he was really rude.

We loved Atchafalaya!! The food was outstanding and the staff was so friendly and attentive. The restaurant itself was so cool. It is a traditional New Orleans house turned into the quaintest restaurant. It is also in a residential area, surrounded by so many pretty houses. I definitely recommend this restaurant when in New Orleans.

We got in right at the time of our reservation but then waited over an hour for food. The food was good, but not good enough to justify the wait. The waiter was very nice and I don't know if it was just a slow kitchen or what, but I don't think we would go back.

Due to the band, the space is very loud for brunch, especially if you have older diners in your party. Service was mediocre – – our server seemed like he didn’t want to be there which certainly lessened our enjoyment. Nonetheless, the bloody Mary bar is fun and food is solid.

I would come back to New Orleans just to eat the Duck Hash. Our server, Justin, was charismatic and hospitable. The Bloody Mary bar had everything you could dream of and their house made mixes were delicious! I recommend a reservation because there was a line for brunch. our group was happy to have a reservation and to be seated right away.

From start to finish, this was an amazing and wonderful experience. The owner greeted us at the door, he had a great sense of humor, and welcomed us after he discovered it was our first time there. The waiter, Leven, paid attention to everything, and I mean everything. He was approachable, personable, informative, and he went the extra step or two to make everything right. He suggested great wine, he gave us the lowdown on the meals, helped us each choose something that we thought we would like, and Suggested a wonderful dessert. Bravo!!

Simply my favorite place to eat in Mew Orleans. Yes, there are fancier, more elegant places to dine. But the menu is always well thought put, the staff professional and the cocktails are spot on. Their brunch with bloody mary bar is exceptional as well. Location in the Garden District away from the frenzy of downtown and the Quarter and off the trolley line and St Charles allows one to enjoy the real New Orleans.

Six of us were out for a business meeting and I was not sure of the dietary needs of everyone and was a little scared when I made these reservations. It turned out being amazing and everyone had a wonderful meal and experience. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.

Having dinner out during Mardi Gras? I wasn’t sure it would work, but it did. We got reservations easily at Atchafalaya, one of our favorite places to take out of town guests...or for birthdays...or if we want excellent food, drinks and service.
I can’t really say more than everything was great and we’ll be back. I hand the roast chicken, my fiancée had tuna confit and our company had the steak. Everyone was happy and well fed.
The only downside was that they hold your doggie bag at the hostess station. We forgot ours 🥺
