Truly enjoyed the 'barbecue shrimp'! And, the biscuits served before our meal with some kind of amazing pepper jelly! YUM!

We were here for a wedding brunch. Each of about 30 of us chose from the brunch menu and I think most were very happy. My sample of gumbo was good - spicy and rich. The eggs with asparagus and spinach were fine. The sorbet tasters were kind of coarsely crystalline with ice and I would not recommend. The beignets... More

Ate here while in DC for business. Shared a bottle of win on a perfect Sept evening on the patio. Really enjoyed the menu and the service

We were in NOLA last year at this time and wanted to try to re-live the experience for a night. Arcadiana was a great choice; we felt like we were back in the big easy, the crowd was very diverse and lively! The charbroiled osyters were delicious as were the pork boudin balls. The blackened redfish was very tasty and... More

Good food, but the menu was a bit limited. The fried green tomatoes are fabulous. The beignets were good, but don't compare to Cafe DuMonde.

This is definitely the place to go if you want a taste of New Orleans and you can't make the trip to NOLA. Everyone gets a homemade biscuit with a cream cheese and glazed pepper jelly spread. The biscuits are the real deal. The crab/corn soup is tasty and comforting. The red beans and rice with a hefty piece of... More

We went with a party of 4 on Friday night and sat outside. We were lucky enough to be the only table out there due to the weather. Amber was our server and although I'm sure the other servers are great, Amber blew us away. Her personality, attention to detail, and suggestions were on point. Everyone at the table left... More

I love this restaurant. In fact, I might be slightly addicted. I've lived in the DC area for over 7 years and I must admit - it's sometimes challenging to come across truly memorable restaurants. I have a handful but not too many (compared to my experiences in NY or Philadelphia). However, Acadiana makes my top 5 list. Whenever I... More

Acadiana was a welcome addition to the downtown DC food scene when it opened a few years back. Fresh, innovative cajun style food. Acadiana has done a good job of staying fresh and current in the face of a major DC food scene revival the past couple of years. They offer menus that change seasonally while retaining a few standard... More
