Success! Thanks for posting your review of Atchafalaya Restaurant. You’ve done the world some good today.

Good Food, Poor Service!

Service: As fate would have it we were assigned ""Renee"" as our waiter. Unfortunately he was inattentive and borderline rude most of the night.. On the other hand the waitress at the next table seemed very pleasant. Food: Fried Oysters: Very nice, large and sweet. Recommend! Free form Ravioli: Get this! Yummy rich sauce. Scallops: Delicious, yet expensive ($14.00 for only two). Red Snapper: Good... view more

Love this place!!!

By far the best brunch in the city!! And dinner is great too!! The bloody Mary bar is heaven!! Their mix is the perfect blend of spices. Highly recommend any brunch item including a poached egg, especially the eggs louisianne.. Served on top the largest crabcake I've ever seen. Also, their duck confit hashbrowns with blackberries, mango, and poached eggs are amazing!! Best grits too! As far as dinner, we had the shr... view more

This is my favorite restaurant in New Orleans by far. My boyfriend and I love this place. Every time we go, we order something different and have NEVER been disappointed. The food is sooooooooooo good. The staff is so friendly, welcoming, and generous. We love it. I don't have a single bad thing to say. The grilled redfish is my favorite. The fried green tomatoes are so yummy and the shrimp and grits are the best I e... view more

truly a delight

We ate dinner here on a busy Saturday night and found ourselves running 45mins late (caught in mardi gras parade traffic) for our reservation - to which the host could not have been kinder. He assured us we would not go hungry and we were seated within 10 mins. We started with goat cheese stuffed pimento that melts in your mouth, then I had steak with asparagus and mashed potatoes that were out of this world - creamy... view more

Terrific local flavor!!!

Forget about those nasty reviews ... this is true local flavor from the moment you drive up to the door. You're in the heart of New Orleans, authentic architecture and neighborhood, live music greeting you as you enter through the bar and terrific ambience in the high-ceilinged dining room. The food is great and filled with local seafood dishes. Our waiter was knowledgeable, friendly and prompt. My hat goes off to t... view more

The cafe atchafalaya Story Part 3

Cafe Atchafalaya owners story\r \r I recovered after a month to find that one manager and one waitress voided out, and stole every cash ticket. Charges have been filed and one of them is going to jail. This has been the most difficult 3 years of my life and I still don't intend to quit. I am aware of the problems that we have had here at Cafe Atchafalaya, and am writing this to let everyone know that we continue to... view more

The cafe Atchafalaya story part 1

I live right down the street from the restaurant and had the opportunity to purchase the business and the building in late 2004. Little did I know as to how difficult things would turn out to be. 2 weeks after I purchased the property it was ran into by a stolen Tahoe that was involved in a high speed police chase! The truck ran straight into the side of the building and knocked it off of its foundation. The ceiling ... view more

Damn good food

There are not enough places like this in town. Scrumptious, wholesome and filling food at a good price, great drink specials, live music most days. I discovered the Honey Island Swamp Band there one Sunday and they rock. It's also a lot cleaner than alot of restaurants around town, or it feels that way at least. I have been here a few times now and I really think it is the perfect place to unwind after work or have S... view more

The cafe Atchafalaya Story part 2

Then came another surprise for everyone. We had the entire building stripped down to bare framework, and foundation. Then Katrina occured! 2 months later we started to build it back together. At this point we had been closed for a year, while making the bank note every month with no income. Still I stuck with it. 9 months later we were able to open in a brand new building. Reflecting back on these difficult times I a... view more
