This WAS one of my favorite restaurants in DC and the duck WAS my go-to meal whenever I visited. However, upon my recent visit I was very disappointed. My lemon drop martini was made with No craftsmanship What so ever. The deviled eggs trio was not Good. They tasted like they were over cooked and the steak tartare selection was... More

You can't go wrong with this restaurant. Acadiana scores bonus points for having one of the best restaurant week setups in D.C. I don't know if they do it every year, but this year they allowed guests to choose from a limited set of appetizers and desserts, but then pick any entree from the regular menu (with a small upcharge...

The Charbroiled Oysters were delicious, so delicious that I'm now addicted. I make it a point to dine at Acadiana as often as I can. Also the service was great!!!!

This is the best restaurant, food & atmosphere in WDC. Great location. We even had a private room because they were full & seated us right away!

The food here is excellent. Atmosphere is professional, business-like. A perfect place for business visitors. While the decor lacks in originality, this is actually good to keep the mind on the task at hand. Seafood and sauces are top-drawer. We were there during the African summit and one of the heads of state brought his delegation here, to the back... More

I ordered the blackened redfish and was disappointed. It was over cooked and not spicy at all. Nor was it flavorful. It was over pasta- would have preferred rice and beans. I told the waitress. She apologized and told me the manager would come out. S/he never did. My friend had the grouper which looked moist and thick. We sat... More

My daughther and I wanted to have Cajun food which is hard to find in Europe. We had a hard time to choose from the menu. Eventually we settled for roasted oysters with parmesan cheese, gumbo and a day special with soft shell crabs and a dessert. I would not hesitate to recommend the place it will be a good... More

The title says it all. The waitress, Stephenie, was superb as were the front end staff. Although dessert was not ordered the kitchen sent out a few samples. Very nice touch. I shall return.
