Live Music. If you don’t prefer live music then this is not your place.
The service, music, and atmosphere were great! The food was ok, it wasn't bad but it was not as good as I hoped. The hush puppies, caramel beignets, and drinks were awesome!
Worst service ever!!! It took 25 minutes from the time we were seated to be acknowledged and asked what we wanted to drink. It got worse from there. We ordered salads and it took over an hour to receive. All the servers looked frazzled but often came out of the kitchen empty- handed. The manager was nowhere to be found. And, finally just trying to pay the check was another 20 minutes wait. 😱 never again.
Great place. The foods was fantastic. Although the music was good the noise was too loud.
great atmosphere, great food, friendly staff & great service!
Great experience and the shrimp po boy was AMAZING!!!
I came to Lafayette’s Orlando because the restaurant in Memphis was one of my favorites when I lived there. I was so excited to visit its location in Orlando, but the comparison was sad. The service was subpar (forgot our bottle of wine, forgot our side dishes, didn’t acknowledge or apologize when we mentioned such), and the food was not as good as the Memphis location. Did not cook meat to our requested doneness. The live music, however, was excellent !
The best experience in orlando we loved our server jeremy the food the band the ambience just perfectly wonderful
Great food and music venue, going back again next Friday night!
We had a group of 9 and every9ne had great food. Prices were reasonable as well. Service was good for a busy night too. Will be going back on my next visit to Orlando.
Awesome atmosphere. Decent food a bit overpriced for the portions. The band was superb!
Business dinner here, great food, good portions, lots of flavor. Seated us in an area away from the live music, very thoughtful, so we could talk and still be "involved ", with the fun atmosphere. Definitely a good place for your group.
Red fish was fantastic. Melissa our server and bartender was great. We had an 8 top and enjoyed everything. Tks PK
Enjoyed everything! Great place to have a celebration
My shrimp po boy wasn’t what I was hoping for, very disappointed. It was dry, not enough remoulade sauce, shrimp were tiny, bread was too hard. The shrimp appetizer I had was pretty good. My husbands lobster sandwich was pretty good and the fries are very good. Just wouldn’t get that shrimp po boy again
Enttäuscht weil Service sehr langsam und unmotiviert. Auf Rechnung zwei mal Lager Bier mit unterschiedlichen Preise. Preise für Getränke und kidsessen zu hoch. Zu kleine Portionen. Special war nicht gültig an Feiertag. Kein Hinweis im Web.
We were celebrating Christmas by having dinner with family!
Wow this place is surprisingly good food! The Louisiana/Cajun is authentic and well prepared. The previous reviews don’t do it justice and if someone had poor food I’d say it probably was a super busy day. The music fit the flair of the restaurant. I’m from marksville la and the gumbo was a good attempt! Maple line wings good and the duck and white truffle goat cheese pizza outstanding. Wife’s chicken and waffles wasn’t bad either. Very nice restaurant I’d come back to
We loved Lafayette’s even though it wasn’t perfect. It was a fun atmosphere and the service was great. We are at the bar and Charli the bartender was delightful.
The food was good but some items could have been better. Started with the house salad with white balsamic - really good. The melon ceviche was bland and the seafood was minimal. The redfish was good. The lamb lollipops were over- cooked to well done, although they were still very tasty. Ended with the caramel beignets- excellent although they weren’t as hot as I hoped.
Overall we still loved it and will visit again.
Great experience celebrating my husband’s birthday. Service and food were great!!
They cancelled our reservation an hour before. Unacceptable and unprofessional.
This was an unfortunate choice for my group of 6 friends who wanted to get together for a casual dinner. While we were on the back patio away from the hubbub of the live music it was still very loud. The corn hole game near us was obnoxious. The TV was on and the live music from the front was piped into our area simultaneously. We assumed all the noise was intended to distract us from the mediocre food. Terrible experience.
Besides the fact that one has to pay for parking; the food was outstanding. I had the Shrimp and Grits and would go back to Orlando just for that. Never mind the other attractions. The drinks were fine and service was great. Grits are it!!!!
My only issue with this dining experience is not entirely the fault of the restaurant but I wanted to point it out. We ate outside on the patio, mainly for the people watching. They had live music inside and the restaurant across the walk had live music on the outside. The resultant cacophony was somewhat distracting. The place was not crowded at all, it's that time of year. Food was fresh and appropriately prepared. the service was as I would have excepted.
No parking validation. :(
Great venue for a night out with live music and drinks. The wait staff was very courteous and the food was tasty. Good to grab a bite while you are drinking, not necessarily a foodie place. Nice selection of burgers, sandwiches, and a few flatbreads. The music was enjoyable and not too loud where you could not enjoy conversation. Definitely returning when the days get a little cooler and on a clear night to enjoy the music and cocktails again.
Great service and great entertainment. We will definitely be back!
Chicken & Waffles did not disappoint and the mimosa was refreshing. Not sure if the beignets were supposed to be so hard but the ice-cream that came with it was delicious
Decent ambiance, good location, great live music. Decent food not great.
But took forever to get food, an hour after ordering entree. Waiter was not very attentive after it got semi busy.
We started off with crab dip, which was great. I had the Bourdon Salmon and my husband had the Mahi-mahi poor boy both were FANTASTIC! We both had to get to go boxes.
Service was terrible. Waited 10 minutes just to be greeted while watching servers stand around and chat. Had to go to hostess stand just to get attention and let them know no one had been to the table. Had to get the manager to cash us out because server was MIA. Terrible service overall. Food was mediocre. Will not be back.
It was great! Server was polite and helpful. The singer was fantastic. Amazing plac!
Food was tasty, service very friendly. Went for lunch and it was quiet, exactly what we were looking for, though it would be great to go when they're busy for dinner with live music!
Food was decent. Drinks were very good. Ambience was fun and the live music was an added bonus.
Stopped by for lunch. Small crowd, very slow service. Food was ok. Not great or worth waiting that long for.
Ordered the shrimp Po Boy and it was not very good at all. The shrimp were mushy probably frozen. The portions were also small.
They sat us within minutes and our waiter was fairly attentive, but it did take a while to get our drinks. Food was tasty but not as Cajun as we expected. Would recommend the crayfish pizza
Awesome restaurant! Nice server...Richard.
Found this place on Trip Advisor. Reviews looked good but the food was underwhelming. We were in town for vacation. Would not return.
We had an appetizer of crab dip which was great. Dinner was shrimp and grits which was excellent. Our only disappointment was that they no longer had chess pie on the menu.
