We felt welcome. The chef stopped by the table to check on us. The bartender created a new drink for us when it was a little to strong. Flavor and presentation on every dish was very good. We Will definitely be back

Attended dinner for a business meeting. I have 10 years of fine dining work experience so I know how guest should be treated. Our reservation was for 7:45pm on a Saturday. Granted we were the last table in the restaurant, but the server definitely made us feel rushed towards the end of our dinner. We left at 10pm. He dropped the check and came right back and opened it up to see if we left a card. The book was in the same place with no card exposed. Next time just ask if we’re ready for you to take the book. We tipped %20 bc of how good our business meeting went, but looking back we should have left %10. Then again we went bc our good friend, DT, used to manage there. We won’t be going again.

Atchafalaya is always amazing from start to finish! We live in the neighborhood and never miss a special occasion to go. Also great for spontaneous dinners during the week. The food is second to none, and the service is always amazing! Their cocktails and wine list are fantastic, and we love their brunches as well! Can’t recommend this wonderful restaurant more highly!

We were seated in a timely fashion for a 1:30 brunch reservation. Wait staff was attentive and delivered cocktails prior to ordering in short order. Cocktail/drink menu was creative and everybody enjoyed their libation.

Food was solid if not spectacular. Menu was a bit limited al though I think everybody found something they enjoyed.

Top 3 best shrimp and grits in the world - have to work for every bite of deliciousness with the shells on. Really enjoyed the oysters but everything was terrific. Overall, phenomenal meal.

6 course meal, most unnecessary, mediocre taste on most dishes, excellent live music and ambiance in a turn of the century old 2 story home. Cost $745 for 4.

We won’t be nack

Food was out of this world. I had the Eggs Louisianne... hubby had duck confit with sweet potato breakfast potatoes. Only thing we didn’t live was the boudin. Was a little dry and flavor not the best. Don’t go if you are in a hurry. Service was a tad slow... but if you are there to dine and enjoy, no problem.

We were seated 30 minutes after our reservation. They gave us an appetizer on the house for having to wait so long for our table but it ended up on our bill somehow. The waiter removed it and apologized. The food was ok. The portion sizes were good and flavors were fine. We ordered the shrimp and grits, which we were told they are known for, they were fine. It didn’t blow us away. The bunny chow was fine as well. It was nothing special though. We expected more from this place and were very underwhelmed.

The food, as always, was excellent. We love the ambiance and the cocktails. Our server was friendly but could have been more attentive. We would also have enjoyed hearing about the wines served (we had the wine pairing). Service wasn’t so poor that I’d complain, but I share my comments as constructive criticism since Open Table asked. .We will be back. And I strongly recommend Atchafalaya to others.
