I can’t say enough good things about this place! Our Uber driver told us about this restaurant and what a hidden gem it was. We tried a variety of the appetizers to start. The blue crab raviolo is what dreams are made of. I had the shrimp and grits. Not usually a huge fan of this dish but I’ve never been more satisfied. The entire meal we were taken care of by our amazing waiter Levin. He was knowledge, friendly and super attentive. The ambiance is classic New Orleans. You do not want to miss dining here!

Located in a lovely quiet neighborhood, the restaurant was charming, welcoming and had atmosphere. My husband said,” This place employed a real chef”, which is his way of saying the restaurant was upper echelon. They sat us earlier than our reservation when my family got rained out from walking the French quarter. We loved it. Even the butter was delicious.

Fantastic experience! It was great to enjoy a quaint restaurant and a quiet ambiance. Craft cocktails were a great start as was the blue crab raviolo. For dinner we had the yellowfin tuna and Gulf Cioppino and both were delicious. Our server recommended the perfect wine and we finished our meal with the espresso cheesecake and the Bread Pudding.

We will definitely come back and we want to enjoy brunch next!

Food and drinks were good, but the managers, who were greeting and seating people were quite rude and left a bad taste in my mouth before we even got to the table.

The food and service were excellent! The jumbo shrimp appetizer was delicious. For our entrees we had the shrimp and grits which had andouille sausage in a red sauce (some of the best we have had) and the pan seared pompano that was on a bed of wilted greens with mushrooms and Yukon potatoes. It was fantastic! For dessert, our server recommended the peach empanadas and we were not disappointed. I have heard the brunch here is phenomenal. Can't wait to try it as well. Great place for a romantic dinner, family get together/celebration or just a night with friends. Will definitely be coming back.

I cannot say enough good things about our experience last night. From the minute we entered the restaurant, the staff were friendly, fun, and accommodating. I loved the wine that my waiter chose for me, and the tuna was outstanding. My friend came from out of town. He had the quail. He also thought the food was delicious. I had such a sense of pride bringing him to Cafe Atchafalaya. I love my city and food. I will return!

Everything was awesome! I called the restaurant ahead of time to prepay for dinner since it was my parents anniversary and they decorated our table and put a candle in our dessert to make it all special. Service was fantastic, attentive but never hovered. And of course the food was incredible!

The food and service were great. The only negative is that we were seated outside and had a continuous problem with flies. I know there isn’t much they can do for that but be aware if you are sitting outside it will detract from the experience.

This place is great. The drink/wine list has things you don't see everywhere. Appetizers and Entree's are savory and full of freshness and flavor. We were too full to try the desserts unfortunately.

Atchafalaya never disappoints - we've been dining here for 12 years! Amazing dinner - the Red Snapper special was amazing, heirloom tomato salad and Tuna crudo were also standouts. My mom had the vegetarian option, eggplant and loved it. The bread pudding was to die for. Tony, Rachel and their whole team do an amazing job. And don't forget to order the Summer Negroni cocktail - delicious!

Absolutely charming vibe and delicious food. Our service was good, though slow. We weren't in a rush so I didn't reduce the number of stars for that.
