    Three of us had the shrimp and grits. Very good if you like the Creole version with tomato sauce. Light coating on the catfish bites and shrimp on the po' boy. All liked their seafood gumbo.

    Our server August was awesome. We chose to dine at Poche's to have the New Orleans food experience; very excited it being our 1st time. Prices and the environment was good, our food was the problem. Drinks ordered was good. We ordered 6 Charbroiled oysters and 2 of the 6 of the shells on 1 side was black burnt which made the oyster less moist and more dry. Sea Food Platter - Catfish, Fries, Shrimp, Stuffed Crab, Hush Puppies and something else on the platter. The Chef apparently dropped all above items in the same grease which made the fries limp/greasy because they were soaked in oil. The Stuffed Crab was ok and prepared separate from the other items. Because the oil has been used in frying various foods our fish collected all the crumbs from the batter from previous orders and was greasy and crumbly. Our Platter served was a good way to see a Cardiologist. Waste of money $90.00

    Hush puppies were crumbly the batter was not solid. The shrimp and catfish really had no taste. The batter was falling off. Everyone head their own opinion. Overall the Service was Outstanding. The place is very nice. The fries were soggy greasy.

    Had an absolutely wonderful day Tuesday meal at Pochés and celebrated with the fried seafood platter and the most amazing king cake beignets (please make those a permanent menu item!). Even though the place was hectic we still had great service and the food was amazing (along with the live band)!

    Incredible!! Don’t miss this place. The food was absolutely amazing. The ‘mermaid tears’ fresh oysters were delicious, we were given 4 very large peel and eat prawns, we had the crawfish etoufee and shrimp and grits as well as an order of garlic bread. It was all dynamite! Had to order the key lime and coconut pie to go since we were stuffed. And even after a couple hours of sitting in the fridge, it was delectable. We can’t wait to go back and try some of the other items on the menu! This place is a must visit if you’re in BCS!!

    Gave it a try even after seeing reviews of bad service. We love our Cajun food. Got seated promptly and then that was it..... Sat for ten minutes and there was not even a waiter in sight. Had our menu selections made and ready to spend boucoups dinero on some outstanding food but.... No waiter. Will not tolerate being ignored for TEN minutes. We got up and left. Hope the restaurant got tagged with a fee for our Open Table reservation!!!! (By the way...this place is impossible to get to with the traffic patterns..)

    All gumbo’s were excellent but shockingly the seafood gumbo was my least favorite. The flight is a great way to try them all. Generous portions. The fried oysters batter could be a little crispier. Banana pudding, out of this world.

    This was our first occasion to enjoy Poche’s. Having lived in Lafayette, La for 20 years we found the food to be very good. Our server Kendall was attentive, fully schooled on the menu and never missed a beat. The Gumbos were rich, dark and smokey just as they should be in Cajun country. I found the duck and andouille gumbo to be quite nice. My Redfish w/ Crawfish Ettouffe was excellent as were the salads. The boudin and dirty rice were also spot on and did not disappoint. The table shared a bread pudding to finish off the meal which we all relished. We look forward to our next visit to get further into the menu.!

    Mediocre at best, and the fact that I made a reservation on Open Table for 4pm, I was never asked my name to confirm the reservation, I was seated and it took about 10 minutes before I received water which was served in a styrofoam cup(dismissed that for the time being) there was a table of 3 that was seated maybe our 15 minutes or so after us, and their food was fried same as my table and we ordered well before them and they received their food before us and our food was room temperature, my table was treated in my opinion as an afterthought, I ordered gumbo to go and as I was leaving a gentleman asked me if it was gumbo., I said yes, he then stated that the rue looked rather dark, which basically I had confirmed to my table prior, that the rue had a scorched taste. I didn’t say anything about it to staff just paid and was leaving when I noticed other diners actually had glassware for their water. I know that at this point I will not eat at this establishment again.

    Fourth visit, won't return. Had high hopes for the food here as it was great the first three times. The service goes downhill each visit. Our server was young and pleasant but needs training. I ordered the large seafood gumbo for $23 since it was very good on a previous visit when we ordered the small size. This time there was a small amount of tiny shrimp, a large not cracked crab claw and lots of liquid. Server did not offer anything to crack the claw. We ordered the appetizer garlic bread to share b/t three people. Server did not bring and did not offer an explanation. She brought two of us 2 slices of bread without the herb oil that a whole loaf has been served on in past visits. She did not bring any for the third person and did not say why. Two of us ordered the grilled oysters. Most of them were the size of a pinto bean. Very pricy for so little...

    Fun atmosphere. If you like fried seafood this is the place for you. Hushpuppies crumbled. Bread was greasy. I did the gumbo flight and it was much too salty. Overall I will go back to try something different. It may have completely been new restaurant learning curves.

    We tried about 5 or 6 different apps plus the fried shrimp plate. All real good. Reasonable prices. Crab dip needed a fair amount more crab to justify price but flavors were all spot on.

    Our second time in and it was great. Lyle was our server, he was on loan from 1860 Italia and was great. We also talked with Jackson, our server in the past. Both were very engaging and knowledgeable about the menu. We started with the crab au gratin and a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc. The au gratin is filled with crab and delicious. The toast to cheese ratio wasn’t quite right, but they brought more toast. I had the stuffed pork chop and my wife had the crawfish etouffe. We also had a side of red beans and rice. All of that was really good, the etoufee was also loaded with seafood and rich. The stuffed pork chop had a nice seasoned crust and the filling was really good. Only thing I would have asked was more stuffing. The red beans and rice were excellent also. We really enjoy Poches. The service has been great, the food is amazing and it is much quieter than other restaurants in town.

    Had 9:00 reservation but when we got there were told the kitchen was closed. When I pointed out the reservation, server went to kitchen, came back and said no grilled food, just fried, so we stayed and tried it. Food was good, service was slow. When asked for ketchup for the fries server went to counter and sat down to talk to another employee. After a few minutes I got up and asked the server about the ketchup and he said, didn't I already get that for you? Guess he was not all there that night...

    I really don’t like having to leave this review. As locals we need to support our locally owned restaurants , but come on Chefs / Owners!! I hope Johnny will spend some time over at his place and get it back in line. Poche’s definitely appears to be off to a rough start. Bad food, bad service, bad drinks, road construction and higher than average prices just don’t mix. So many things were just flat out wrong with this meal and experience, it’s much easier and friendlier to the establishment to just mention what was right. The garlic bread was amazing, the French fries were great, and the key lime coconut pie was delish but it 100% stops there. Very disappointing 2nd visit. Hopefully they make some changes or it will be a very expensive miss for a small business owner.
