The waiter was so rude and condescending that we left the restaurant without having our meal. His attitude and sheer unprofessionalism needs to be addressed or Evangeline will start losing more business than just ours.

Our group of 4 had a lovely dinner at Evangline's last week. We enjoyed our meal in the charming courtyard and especially loved our dessert! Our server was friendly and took great care of us. We will be back!

One of those fantastic little places to eat that people walk by every day and then miss out on some of the best southern and Cajun food the south has to offer. We love the quiet, little courtyard in the back.
We have been coming here for years and can truly say that the waite staff are some of the most professional and fun people we have had the pleasure to enjoy our meals with.

The food was very good and the servers were very attentive. We sat in the courtyard on a sunny morning and the umbrellas provided good shade.

Seated on the patio next to a mice house. Literally a mouse was playing by my feet. They did move us inside but the mood was definitely dampened.

We chose to sit on the patio, where the heaters were barely enough to keep us from shivering. Granted it was not the warmest weekend and that is the location we chose to sit at, additional/higher-powered heat lamps would have been appreciated. The food and drinks were so delicious and the staff was very friendly.

Great food! Try the bread pudding beignets; trust me! They were short-staffed the night we visited but very upfront about it and apologetic. I'm former waitstaff and don't blame them if someone is a no-show. Will definitely visit them again!

Service was great, the waiter was sweet, but the food was average. I had higher hopes for the crawfish etouffee. But how good can crawfish etouffee really be? Maybe I am expecting too much? Maybe it would be different if I grew up on this food?

We had a reservation. When we showed up, they were closed with just a paper sign saying they closed due to weather. Since reservations were available and I made one, I was unable to use OpenTable to make a reservation at another restaurant, making dinner hard to plan. A very unpleasant experience

They food is absolutely amazing - the crawfish and grits is some of the best I’ve ever had! Their happy hour is also reasonable had had two signature cocktails, and do yourself a favor and order the fried pickles.

Excellent food. We really enjoyed the crab cakes, andouille sausage gumbo and fried pickles were a great way to start the night. Our server was fantastic too. I had the Pasta Evangeline which was excellent too. Topped it off with a home made pecan pie. Excellent dinner!

Early dinner on Halloween as we were taking our middle school kids on a ghost tour. Restaurant was decorated for the holiday. Staff was all very friendly. Nice casual atmosphere was exactly what we were looking for. Food was great. Crawfish & grits, Jambalaya, crawfish Poorboy & Cajun burger were all hits with our crew. Not to forget the Evangeline Rum Punch.

Evangeline was a nice way to celebrate the evening, away from the hustle and bustle of Bourbon street. Our waiter was excellent and gave us great advice from us being out of town, visiting for the weekend. It was my birthday and he gave us delicious shots to finish off dinner. Cheers!

Everything about this place was absolutely perfect. My Wife and I visited Evangelines for Dinner and the returned first thing in the morning for their brunch. The owners were so friendly and accommodating due to Covid restrictions. The food is absolutely DELICIOUS and the service was amazing. We never had to wait for a thing and at brunch our Bottomless Mimosas were never completely empty before they were refilled all brunch long. The pricing is very fair and worth every bite of their Seleucid is menu. Me and My wife have agreed this will definitely be our new spot when visiting New Orleans and the French Quarter. We absolutely can not wait to come back and dine at Evangelines again.

I loved the Jambalaya, Cajun style, but my wife's order came out wrong and they corrected. Flavor was lacking on her catfish, but the fried alligator was good. Dessert was complimentary after the entree error which was nice. Beignet bread pudding my wife loved and I thought was good. Drinks were a little pricey, but made well. What they called a courtyard was just outdoor dining behind the restaurant, not a New Orleans courtyard. Overall, service was good, food was very good and I would probably try them another time.
