The selections here are great. The charbroiled oysters were almost as good as Drago's in NO. I had the trio soup sampler(chicken/andouille gumbo, crab/corn chowder, turtle). Yum. The grillades and grits were excellent. My husband had the roasted lamb shank that he thought was well done. We finished off with an excellent coffee Creme brûlée. Super meal. The restaurant is...

I joined a birthday brunch party at Acadiana, and my experience was poor; to be fair, there were others at my table that enjoyed their meals. I have seafood sensitivities so my options were already limited on the prix fixe menu, but i am used to that. Given it is a Passion Hospitality restaurant I was completely underwhelmed. If you...

Wonderful Service -- Waiter Matt or John -- attentive, answered all questions, knew the options, prompt with requests, and was assisted by others who made things run flawlessly. Our group choose different entrees, appets, and desserts..everything was beyond our tastebuds' expectations. My fried green tomatoes and pumpkin risotta were fabulous. Everything was presented in a professional and attractive manner. Nice... More

My friend and I stopped in the Acadiana after 2:30p when they stopped serving the full menu. Mark was the bartender. He did a great job of making us feel welcome. Very nice young man and great customer service.

A very nice assortment of foods from fried green tomatoes to shrimp and grits and a lamb shank that melted in your mouth. I have been is the foodservice industry for 28 years, it is nice to go to a restaurant that is moderately priced and offers an assortment of foods that a foodie will enjoy. Nicely done.

Upscale casual, nice bar area. Staff is friendly, professional and knowlegable about the menu. Check their website for prices and sample menu. I'm... More

Was in town for a conference so a friend and I stopped by Acadiana for Sunday brunch. I was slightly skeptical, since I'm not generally a huge cajun food fan, but I was blown away! The fried green tomatoes were out of this world, and I would highly, highly recommend the eggs sardou. I would have never thought to combine... More

One of my favorite restaurants, the appetizers are so good sometimes I don't get to the entrée :). my favorites include the deviled eggs with caviar and beef tar tare; gumbo sump with Andouille sausage and chicken, side of grits. Nice selection of craft beers to accompany your meals and large list of after dinner drinks!

Enjoyed the quiet atmosphere and the Louisiana-style food. Being from Texas, we were unsure what it would be like to have Louisiana-style in DC, but we thought it was excellent!
